Petros Papadakis doubled down on his criticism of USC following his initial editorial on Thursday about Lane Kiffin’s comments that Matt Barkley could have won the Heisman Trophy too if the defense was better.
“What really irks me . . . how come he never blamed the defense when his dad Monte was defensive coordinator?” Papadakis said Friday night. “We’re still hearing excuses to a certain degree . . . Lane’s history of bizarre episodes with the Raiders, Tennessee and USC have placed him in the media crosshairs.
“Some of the things (Kiffin) says I can’t explain.”
Papadakis said Kiffin should follow Ed Orgeron’s new motto, “turn the page.”
