Radio host Petros Papadakis did not like Lane Kiffin’s comments earlier this week that Matt Barkley would have won a Heisman Trophy if he had a better defense.
“Why call out the USC defense? What kind of head coach publically blames his own defense for the failures of his offensive stars?,” Papadakis said. “Linebackers Hayes Pullard and Lamar Dawson didn’t throw 15 picks. Barkley did.
“He’s so personally attached to the USC offense and so proud of it, that he cannot help himself from pointing the finger in the other direction when he senses media criticism.
“You’re the head coach of the whole team. It’s all yours.”
The full commentary is here and begins around the 14-minute mark.
