USC Morning Buzz

Lane Kiffin won’t name a starter but made Cody Kessler and Max Wittek also keep it an awkward secret Tuesday, which was a disservice to both because they are usually honest and upfront with the media.

Kessler is going to start against Washington State but Kiffin said Tuesday he had not told the team yet.

“I don’t address them about who starts at running back or right cornerback,” Kiffin said.

Don’t ask. Don’t tell. Story link here

    Pimp Kiffin has some serious mental problems. This clown is just one strange messed up guy. The persona of a rock , brains of a flea, no morals, and all characteristics of a socialpath.
    SO LET’S hire him to be the HC at USC LMAO

    It’s too late for Wittek to transfer so why the secrecy?

    it is very clear these QB’s as well as Marquise Lee feel the situation is a joke. Lee is an honest kid and he can’t hide his incredulity. insofar as the QB’s go they are too afraid to speak out becuase it will probably cost them a chance at starting!! what a mess!!

    wolfman you are DEFINING what a great journalist does!! he holds the powers that be accountable and does not back down depite all the threats from the Athletic Dept, the attempt to ban wolfman from practice and all the crying and moaning from the bandwagon fans!!!

    wolfman, you are taking your already finely tuned game to a WHOLE ‘NOTHER level this year!!!
    Sportwriter of the Year nomination, anyone????

      MAN CRUSH!

  • Whatever

    I have a good idea. Let Pat Haden do the same thing to Kiffin as he’s doing the the quarterbacks. Hire an interim coach and explain to them and the asst. coaches that both are fighting for the head coaching job. They have to game plan using both philosophies and systems, learn all the plays and strategies for the game, and then tell the entire coaching staff who they’re going with hours before the game. What book is Kiffin reading this stuff in?

      What an outstanding idea.

    Kiffin is one strange human

    “Don’t ask, don’t tell” (DADT) was the official United States policy on gays serving in the military from December 21, 1993, to September 20, 2011. The policy prohibited military personnel from discriminating against or harassing closeted homosexual or bisexual service members or applicants, while barring openly gay, lesbian, or bisexual persons from military service.

    Kiffin likes to play head games. Whatever happened to the concept of a straight shooting, no-nonsense approach. Ultimately, Kiffin is part of a good recuiting team but an average at best head coach.

      i thought you were dead?

      Kiffy has not a jot of self-esteem. He has to resort to subterfuge to manage his own team. He team is now laughing at him behind his back, and unfortunately, his situation will deteriorate further as the season unfolds.

  • Chad Parker

    “The question is, what is Kiffin really protecting the quarterbacks from?”

    From a shock jock reporter with an agenda.

    Wolfie, if Mike Riley replaced Lane Kiffin after last season, you would have been supporting it. The Trojans would be 0-1 with a loss at Hawaii.

  • snake plissken

    Alive and well

  • CardinalnGold

    I’d be weary of the media too (see the Johnny Football sideshow @ Texas A&M). It sucks that there are beat writers out there who thrive on the negative and blow little things out of proportion. Wolfie criticizes everything Kiffin does and then wonders why Kiffin won’t divulge any information of value to him.

    DAMN.. STOP DWELLING ON IT.. when it feels like telling the Media then he will gees..
    Stop nit-picking about the QB. move on

    • SpiketheBruin

      This just in: UCLA doesn’t have a disorientated HC or convoluted QB situation.

      • TrojanFan

        Wrong blog…you have no idea what you’re talking….Go give Wang some love

      • B.Miller

        This just in.. No one cares about UCLA or we would visit your Blog site.. More UCLA fans on a USC blog than USC Fans

    • TrojanFan

      Exactly…..The guy has a weird obsession with the QB derby.
