Afternoon Quote From Lane Kiffin

“It was just a classic case of, after playing really badly, all the negativity started swirling around. They did a really good job of blocking that out.”

    keep the Kiffin-isms coming, wolfman!!!

  • SCFTBL1

    The negativity will leave when Lane leaves.

    • Helen

      What, he’s taking Scottie with him?

    • Paul Hackett

      No kidding, and takes Haden with him.

  • marvgoux1

    He had the good will of the SC Family after the 50-0 smearing of fucla, but squandered it after coaching a team that was ranked No. 1 in the preseason to 7-6 .

    Got to give them all credit from Kiffin on down, after that horrible offensive display with WSU, mishandling of the QBs, players meeting fiasco, they came out and played well in all phases like a Pete Carroll team. Even had the dumb personal fouls and still won big. Give Wittek credit for his 4th qtr performance, played like he’s not giving it up to Kessler.

    • Paul Hackett

      Rah, rah, rah ! ” Like a Pete Carroll team ” ROTFLMAO

      • steveg

        Its rah rah, fight on. What’s your point, Carroll didn’t have a good record or what?

        • Ted

          I think a Pete Carroll team would have beaten BC 70 to 0! is what hackett is saying…i think.

  • jetman624

    Fortunately for Kiffin, the leadership on THIS team is stronger than he is…

  • UCLA Owns the Rose Bowl

    Is there a secret Lane Kiffin who is articulate, clear, and concise? Most of the time, he sounds mentally challenged.

    Kiffin don’t know

  • rusoviet

    Better than having what poor NE is looking at in Bo Pelini. Kiffn conceals his anger, he doesn’t lose it. Unlike Pelini, Kiffin isn’t the main focus of the national 4th estate and other teams fans as Pelini is and shall be as long as he is at NE.

    Unlike Tommy Frazier I haven’t heard any former player go after Kiffin the way Frazier did to Pelini. Tough right now being a NE fan especially if they struggle at home against SDSU this Saturday. I doubt Pelini lasts the year.

    Here is the Math to who owns LA. Mostly, things should be equal but Kiffin is the MAJOR NEGATIVE FACTOR.

    Football only.

    Coaching

    Mora > Kiffin
    Ucla assistant coaches > Usc assistant coaches

    Offense

    Hundley > Kessler +Wittek+Browne
    Usc Receivers > Ucla Receivers
    Ucla OLine > Usc OLine
    Ucla RBs Usc LBs
    Ucla DBs = Usc DBs

    Special Teams

    USC Kicker = UCLA Kicker
    Ucla punter Ucla Punt return
    Kickoff Return does not matter in the days of 90% touch backs.

    Recruiting and Intangibles

    Ucla Fan support > Usc Fan support
    Ucla Team Morale > Usc Team Morale
    Ucla Recruiting > Usc Recruiting (sanctions are tough)

    * Recruiting, fan support and team Morale all has to do with the head coach!!

    • Trojan Hoarse

      Yup… based on your formula, UCLA currently owns LA in football…..the final part of your equation will obviously play out on November 30th…..anything else is simply rhetoric ……

      • Ted

        agreed

  • B.Miller

    JUST WIN!

  • Ted

    The proof is in the fact, UCLA is 2-0 in blowout games against Top 25 team in Nebraska and MWAC power in Nevada, while Southern Cal is 2-1 with a loss to WSU Pac-12 doormat and a 20 point win against lowly Hawaii that was closer then the final score. BC win was good win against a poor team.

    You don’t need to do the math to know who sits in a better place.

    • sureshot32

      Dude, the “Blackshirts” allowed Wyoming to rack up over 600 yards of offense. 600 YARDS! You have to be thinking Nebraska was way overrated at this point. And Mountain West “power” Nevada? Nevada has won four WMC games… ever. How are they a WMC power? And you realize the bruins lost three straight last year to close out the season, including two absolute maulings, right?

      The Wazzu game was a terrible loss, I’ll give you that. But I want some of whatever it is you’re smoking because it’s potent stuff!

      • Ted

        so are you saying that southern cal is better then Ucla right now?

        • Ted

          And I said Kiffin is the negative factor that puts ucla ahead of usc! That’s all.

          usc football history > ucla football history. no debate on that.

          But because of kiffin southern cal is clearly behind ucla at this point.
