    Defense looked good, and running game was pretty good. Quarterbacking obviously has to open up, but this team will win some games this year.

      If kiffin will let the QB’s throw the ball down the f*cking field. We have 2 of the best WR’s in the nation, let the qb’s throw it up for them to grab, then we might have a chance. He needs to give up playcalling or get fired. Im done defending his sorry @$$

      • IIWIICUB

        uh….there’s a reason he didn’t allow them to do that. think about it.

        • FIGHTONtoVICTORY

          uh…its been the same for the past 4 years. think about it. even with barkley, it was bubble screens 85% of the time. Better to be intercepted down the field than have a bubble screen picked off for a 70-yd touchdown.

          • IIWIICUB

            Yep, Barkley put himself into position to be taken #1 for a while by throwing bubble screens. <3

          • Big Wave

            85% bubble screens go back much further than Barkley. Remember that one QB named Leinart that can’t find a team in the NFL? Didn’t he win the Heisman? Padded his stats with all those bubble screens too. Oh yeah and there is Matt Barkley too. He is having a great career in the pros too. It’s becoming obvious that USC QB’s are worthless once they make it to the pros because they can’t throw a pass down field.

            Bubble screens work when you have players like reggie bush. Marqise Lee is not Reggie Bush. You have to hit him downfield. This was proven last night.

      By “win some games” do you mean like FIVE ?

      • Golden Trojan

        4 more at best.

    • Big Wave

      Remember who that “good defense” has played against…

      Washington State won 1 Pac-12 game last year and Hawaii scored just as many points against a team that lost to Eastern Washington (an FCS team) as they did against the Toejams. Just wait until the Toejams see ASU, Arizona, Notre Dame, UCLA and Stanford to name a few who WILL put up points.

      Enjoy these next two weeks (if you make it through them) because your real season begins in three weeks.

  • Trojenz

    No he is a great coach and a great man. WSU is a top 10 team and Kiffin isn’t getting a fair shake right now. USC will win 10 games this year, just watch.

    • Big Wave

      Who are the nine other teams that USC is going to beat? You can’t be positive the Toejams will beat any team other than Colorado and even that is questionable.

      • Trojenz

        Hawaii W
        WSU L

        BC Win: they cant score on our D

        Utah State Win:Keeton is overrated

        ASU Win: they are not nearly as good as they think they are

        AZ Win: They lost Matt Scott

        ND Win: They lost Te’o. ND is all hype this year, no substance

        Utah Win: they just suck

        OSU Win: they lost to a FCS team

        Cal Win: Starting a true frosh QB. They almost lost to Portland state

        Stanford L: They are just too good. Our D won’t be able to stop them.

        Colorado W: They are better this year, but still pretty bad

        UCLA W: They lost their all time leading rusher, their best tight end, and their best DL. Plus, our D will be motivated at home. Their offense won’t score more than 14. By then, Kessler will be dishing it to Marquis Lee and we will score enough to win.

        • Big Wave

          Hahaha, can I have some of whatever you are on?
          USC lost to Washington State so they can’t be that good especially when Washington State will finish last in the Pac-12. So how you think USC is going to bowl over the other Pac-12 teams (and ND – bahahaha) makes no sense at all. And remember the OSU team that you said “lost to a FCS team” beat Hawaii by more points than USC did. So maybe you should use OSU as your barometer for how good USC is this year.

  • betomas

    Tennessee fans must be gloating right now witnessing the chaos and stress that Kiffin is experiencing. There’s got to be some feeling of vindication now that Kiffin is sinking badly.
    Dude needs to go.

  • L’Angelo Misterioso

    The 61 no votes must be from fans of other schools

  • Bill

    Kiffin should get a long term contract!

  • WEB_Dupree

    No big surprise that everyone is voting “Yes”. The poll should have asked WHEN.

  • Isaiahdolan

    While you are at it, how about a poll on Pat hayden? If they continue to play a miserable brand of football and Hayden makes us suffer the entire season, he should go too!

    • Joe Blow

      Haden is WORSE than Kiffin
