    If Kiffin can not decide now, it is because he is still stuck thinking like an Offensive Coordinator instead of a Head Coach. I’d say, he wants the taller QB with the stronger arm. A good Head Coach would pick the consistent safe QB and get the entire team involved with the game, and not just the golden arm with a few wide receivers being the team!

      Agree as well

    Which one leads the team? Kiffin wants Wittek so bad he can taste it, but the kid doesn’t do it when it counts, but I still think he gets the nod to start.

      Agree

      Wittek it is unless injury forces Kiffin to play Kessler.

  • Cloud Shaman

    I think the way he is looking at it is that Wittek has two real games under his belt so he started the competition ahead of Kessler. Everything Cody Kessler has done up to this point has made it an even deal in Kiffin’s mind. However, if I were in Kiffin’s shoes I would start Cody Kessler for Hawaii and let Max Wittek in for a quarter or two depending on the score. Personally, I think Kiffin needs a quarterback that can run a balanced attack this year. This is not a year with all the hype to impress the fans with two Heisman candidates.Its about consistency across the board to show that Kiffin can coach the whole team and not rely on two college football stars.

    This just in from the UCLA camp re: Vanderdoes. A swing and a miss forSC recruiting!

    Friday night notes: Eddie Vanderdoes commands double teams

    Posted on August 16, 2013 by Jack Wang

    Half a day after his first extended practice, Eddie Vanderdoes started turning heads.

    Still working his way back from a tight back, the 6-foot-3, 310-pound defensive end commanded regular double teams — quickly backing up his ranking as the No. 21 recruit in the country. Even when going up against starting offensive linemen Caleb Benenoch and Torian White, Vanderdoes more than held his own.

    If the injury doesn’t flare up again, the Auburn, Calif., native will be a beast.

      We don’t want fat kids. We want and GET men.

        You’re funny, considering how bad all you guys wanted him last Feb on recruiting day. Nice try acting glib.

    Not only can he hold off, but he will.
