Kiffin Denies Having 25 Scholarships

I asked Lane Kiffin today if there was any chance he could sign 25 players in February becaue a lot of readers believe USC is going to ignore NCAA sanctions following Todd McNair’s legal victory.
Kiffin said he never heard of this theory and never spoke to Pat Haden about it. He said he wished he could sign 25 but is only allowed 15.

    Watch NCAA offer USC some more scholies after national signing day is over. I am sure Kiffen knows about the possibility and Haden is plotting and being patient. This will be fun to watch play out.

      I hope USC steps up and counterpunches

        And open the door for the Joe McKnight investigation? I think Haden and the NCAA want this all to go away quietly. If SC raises a stink, they risk reopening the McKnight baby mama car.

          McKnight who!…

            It’s very clear that Pat Haden has said “No mas” to the NCAA and we are going to take our medicine regardless of what McNair does.

            That was then, this is now….it wouldn’t hurt for them to consult their legal team and get an opinion…If an injustice has occurred someone needs to be held accountable

            Haden and The Greek.

            A quote from Haden in a interview he did with the OC register:

            Haden: “We’re tracking it. I think this is going to take a long time to work its way through the legal system. I don’t think we’re going to know anything for quite some time. If and when facts come out that are different from what we understand today, we will reconvene”

            It was a puff piece. Haden ain’t doin’ nothin’. Other than ruining USC athletics

          • gotroy22

            Won’t the sanctions be over by then?

          • TrojanFan

            There is more to gain than lost scholarships

          That was all explained I thought, and was already looked into. Tell me more about how McNair though

          Hey dummy, McFumble sat out the Bowl game and left the program. OLD NEWS.

          • ProbationU

            Bush was out of the program too. The simple point is that only SC investigated McKnight and not the NCAA. Trying to get back at the NCAA might just piss them off. Haden trying to move forward without further issues is the right tack.

          • TrojanFan

            You don’t have a dog in the fight, so run along

            PS…read my post on the Haden quote

          • gotroy22

            The NCAA likes what Haden is doing so there will be no more investigations and no appeals.

  • TrojanFan

    Quit speculating wolfman, do your homework and post relevant facts…..What the hell did you expect kiffin to say, “make that 26 players”

    • http://twitter.com/FatBooster Joe Blow

      I’m shocked Kiff even spoke to the troll.

  • Spedjones

    LOL at you dopes thinking there’s any relief coming from the NCAA.

    • TrojanFan

      Would love to see kiffin cherry pick some ruin commits, with a increase in scholarships

    • http://4chan.org/ m00t

      You really think we expect relief from the NCAA? How retarded are you?

      • Spedjones

        Only retarded enough to read down the rest of this thread to see there are plenty of Trogans who think relief is coming. LOL.

          So, like, 1? Not exactly the longest thread in the world.

        • TrojanFan

          Run along dude, you keep pissing in your own cheerios
