USC Morning Buzz

LaneKiffin3002During Pat Haden’s support video last week, he said of Lane Kiffin: “He’s a dynamic playcaller in my estimation.”

But during the same video, Haden said USC must “convert more on third downs” this season. The Trojans ranked ninth in the Pac-12 last season on third-down conversions (34.2 percent).

So who’s fault was that? Matt Barkley? Marqise Lee? Robert Woods? Silas Redd? No, the scapegoat is the offensive line, of course. But isn’t that the type of situation that precisely calls for a dynamic play?

    I’m sure glad media guys like Wolf aren’t athletic directors or coaches.

    If you’ve seen the way USC practices, you’ll see were many of their issues on 3rd down come from. And no — I’m not talking about “pad vs. no pads”. The offense lacks an identity.

    FYI Wolf — this goes way beyond simply “calling plays” or what plays were called.

    It’s almost like saying a 4 cylinder 1.8 motor isn’t fast enough in quarter mile because the driver isn’t shifting fast enough.
