Answer Friday!

Did Lane Kiffin learn from 2012? How will he handle the quarterback position? These are issues in this segment.

Q: Jay said:

Hi Scott,
From your dealings with Lane Kiffin, do you believe he can be man enough and honest enough with himself, to correct some of his poor coaching decisions from 2012 moving forward in light of the perceived hot seat he is on for 2013 ?

A: I believe Lane Kiffin thinks he has corrected poor coaching decisions by firing assistants and hiring defensive coordinator Clancy Pendergast. Now does that mean he can correct his poor decisions? He has not replaced himself as the playcaller yet. And will not comment on whether he made a decision if he or Clay Helton will call plays.
Kiffin is taking responsibility during interviews to give the impression he learned from last season. But the question is whether the team will believe in him during the season, especially during moments of adversity.
I have had doubts about that since 2010 and written about them many times. They remain, in my opinion.

Q: uscvictory •said

We hear and see the CB’s and secondary are getting over run by the WR’s. Do you think this will eventually help the secondary?
Also, do you think that Kiffin will play both QB’s vs Hawaii?
A: It can only help the secondary to face someone like Marqise Lee every day in practice. It is also not unusual during spring practices for the cornerbacks to struggle, especially when you sometimes have walk-ons playing more.
The question is whether someone like Torin Harris will finally become a consistent cornerback or someone like Anthony Brown can be a successful starter. It already looks like Josh Shaw will be forced to move from safety, which helps the cornerback position.
Will Lane Kiffin play both quarterbacks against Hawaii? The game could be a blowout so I could easily see two quarterbacks playing.
Kiffin does not like alternating QB’s. So I think he will pick a starter in training camp and let that QB take a lot of the snaps with the backup doing mop-up duty, unless the starter struggles.

    Kessler has his transfer request ready to turn in, he will not be the starter no matter how badly he outplays the other QB’s in practice.

      Tell me about it. He got me on “Probation.” I hate that guy. (I wish I were him.)

      Hey why are you called Joe “Blow”?

      • Joe Blow

        Got that nickname in the can. I got busted for trying to blow an undercover cop. So the Bloods made me blow the entire cell block.

        ergo: Joe “Blow”. That’s why I hate Black people.

      Memo to Bucket & Beaner: Nice try. Hawr Hawr.

  • Joe Blow

    So what do we do about Bucket? I could try blowing him.

    • m00t

      Not much we can do.

    Love the hack, could care less. Just shows I’ve got the BEST of you turds. Again…..

    • Trojan Fan

      But, if you could care less, why did you change your Avatar?

      And by the way, the expression is I COULDN’T care less. If you say I could care less, you are saying I COULD care less, but it leaves open the possibility that you could care MORE. I look up to you, so you need to be the leader in grammar as well as ideas. I love how you used to joke about molesting children. Why did you stop?

      • Joe Blow

        What a waste of time trying to be TF and me. Just showing you how stupid you are. Now you’re 8 characters. What a tool. Hawr. Hawr.

        • Trojan Fan

          I thought you didn’t care. Why do you keep responding?

          Don’t let him in your head.

          • Joe Blow

            Gee, you went from 1,000+ posts to 10. The only stupid person here is you, bucket. Hawr. Hawr.

          • Trojan Fan

            You’re still responding…you need to get your cranium checked!!

            OINK! ; )

          • Joe Blow

            What a fool you are. Now get back to lickin’ some bacon on the old pig you married.

  • ThaiMex

    Chucker…what did you put in the water? Are these imbeciles on some sort of Truth Serum and finally admitting they enjoy “spoatazoa”. Not since Nubsie and mono had their lovers quarrel have I read anything so funny and true.
    fit un torgans! football season is just around the corner….and you know what that means!
    fit UN!

    Since Kiffin doesn’t know what a fourth quarter comeback would be, he would play both quarterbacks since they won’t be able to come back against Hawaii!
