    That is f*#ked up.

    “According to sources”?……more hearsay….Hey wolfman, try getting the true story from the horse’s mouth

    • Spedjones

      are you new to reporting? “Sources” aren’t unique to Wolfie. Keep spewing the TRUTH Scotty!

      • TrojanFan

        Hey spudjuice, wrong blog, go troll your grandma’s panties!

  • Oh great purveyorof rumor, Oh great rumor monger. We live for your day dose of crap.

  • “TrOXan for Life!!!”

    (urinating sound…..FLUSHHHH)

    • TrojanFan

      Get some new material, it’s just pathetic how you recycle the same crap day after day….get a girlfriend

  • Here’s an idea…how about getting an interview with Polamalu? If this is true, then Haden has to know about it and is backing Kiffin.

        Scott’s reporting consists of reading other blogs, their message boards, writing as a UCLA troll when he’s angry or bored (which is all the time), and watching ESPN gamecasts of USC basketball games instead of traveling with the team. The LA Daily News gives him a press pass so he can stand around with 20 other reporters in huddle to ask questions after practices and games. He slinks into the pile, asks one questions at best, and proceeds to write as if he asked all the questions. His “sources” are anonymous message board posters from places like The Peristyle, and We Are SC Insider. This blog’s only purpose is for us to indulge our anger. Hence, only snarky comments, only question marks, Scott’s lowest-common denominator posts, and the REALLY smart (and clever – Oh that Charlie Bucket – what a ruse) UCLA fans.

          Then why do you read it?

    • betomas

      I agree. Then we can get down to the bottom of this. However, the way Kiffin does things, I bet you what Wolf heard is true. Kiff has blundered so many things as of late that I bet some of his coaches an HH staff ARE itching to spill the beans to put him in check.

    • Trojanpete

      Something tells me that part of the “settlement” includes not spilling any beans.

    • Ben Factor

      I am one who appreciates Scott’s observations, and I think you HAVE zeroed in on his biggest shortcoming. He speaks to someone and get an opinion, and doesn’t inquire with other sources, even better sources. It’s inexplicable.

  • Spedjones

    LOL. Classy!

  • jetman624

    As much as I like to call BS on Wolfy’s “Sources”, would this really surprise anyone? This is right in line with the rest of Kiffin’s shenanigans.

  • It will turn out to be true, remember Robo with the answer machine firing from Garrett? USC is one huge PR nightmare these days, maybe the school should hire a PR person to give Kiffin some pointers.

    • You mean when Robo was dodging MG! Ask Robo.

    • steveg

      Save the money and let LK bury himself.

  • dtksr1

    Somethings missing here… this sounds similar to the MG-John Robinson scenario where Robinson made himself scarce when he figured he was getting let go, and after MG made attempts to personally contact him had failed, gave up & wired him the decision officially.

    • Independent_George

      JR made things appear worse then they nneded to be, and MG took a lot of unwarranted crap for it.

      • dtksr1

        absolutely agree!

    • marvgoux1

      Except there is no evidence Kennedy wanted to avoid the recruiting dinner, so so much for that theory.

      • TrojanFamily

        There is no evidence either way from Scott Wolf. That involves actual journalism.

        • marvgoux1

          You don’t like it when Scott reports anything negative that Lane does. The sad thing for you rah rahs is we went 7-6 so pretending everything is fine isn’t working anymore.

          • TrojanFan

            7-6 is in the rear view mirror!….Everything the wolfman posts is negative

          • marvgoux1

            Didn’t the season end a month ago?

  • Independent_George

    Much ado about a running backs coach who coached at a time when USC’s running backs were not particuarly good.

    There are probably many reasons why USC’s running game the past three years has been poor, and that is primarily because Kiffin would rather pass, but really, all the hand wringing over KP is silly. It’s not like Kiffin fired Vince Lombardi.

    “But he’s a true Trojan . . .” Blah, Blah, Blah . . . Let it go, it ultimately means nothing.

    Alabama went this route after Bear Bryant retired. Stallings gave them an NC, but the program quickly fell into averageness. Shula, the same thing.

    But when they hired someone with NO CONNECTIONS TO BEAR BRYANT AT ALL they created the most dominant football “dynasty” since Bud Wilkerson’s Oklahoma Sooners in the 50’s.

    So this “True Trojan” thing is a lot of crap.

    • Independent_George

      But it’s not going to stop Scottie from pushing all the troll buttons to gin up hits. SWEET SCOOP WOLFIE . . .

    • WingsHD

      When the line doesn’t block running backs can’t do much. Fired the wrong coach but when has Kiffin ever made the right decision. .

  • Please, please, please keep Kiffen as your coach for a LONG time…he just defines “Douchebag”……

  • Hold on.. “someone who over heard someone say” reporting? Are you a reporter or not? How come you can not ever report what you hear directly?

  • Brian

    This doesn’t add up. Because it was clear two weeks before officially being fired, that Coach Pola was done when he was not allowed to attend the recruiting dinner.

    • leon Sanchez

      My thoughts exactly, Brian. This guy wolf is a dummy.

  • sbooth44

    Thanks for the most accurate and reliable information on the internet Scott. Now I have to get back to watching Fox News…

    • marvgoux1

      You think the Clinton News Network is reliable you stupid lib.

      • TrojanFamily

        You might want to update your material. What’s next, a joke about Kurt Cobain?

        • marvgoux1

          What update? They worship Hitlery and last I checked she is running for president in 2016 if the Muslim doesn’t declare himself Emperor.

  • Cheap seats

    Has Wolf actually ever INTERVIEWED a player or former coach outside of the Kiffin pressers?

    And at the pressers he asks questions with the agenda of irritating Kiffin?

    SW: “Would you have called a different play on that 4th and goal a few months ago against Notre Dame?”

    Kiff: “Thanks for bringing that up again..”

    • marvgoux1

      Yes we would hate to have someone hold Lane accountable for losing to the French Whores.
