    Why am I shocked that this post did not feature one of Wolf’s own tweets?

    Say what you will about Kiffin, but he did relate to the players. Too bad that didn’t translate into wins. The negative media attention on Kiffin turned the recruits off and that probably was what triggered Haden to act. It takes 3-4 years to recoup from a slide in recruiting.

      Helen – I don’t know if it necessarily DIRECTLY impacted the recruits.

      I think the bigger impact came when other schools would talk to them with lines like, “you sure you want to be in a program filled with instability with their coach? And look at their sanctions. You can START at our school.”

        Agree. And what athlete would want to attend a school where the fans boo the team at home?

    • Fred Sampson

      Lane Kiffin was a great recruiter when things were going well, but he lacked all the other ingredients of a successful Coach, and had no leadership skills at all . When you take over a program like USC your resume should speak volumes about yourself, and Kiffins said absolutely nothing !!! Except he was Monte’s Son.

    Smart kid – great attitude.

    Will Kiffin’s firing mean the Baby Quarterback will be dropped as a recruit?

      We can only be so lucky.


    He Wolf, “Kiffin’s car was at the airport. He wasn’t pulled off the bus and left there.”

    • Trojan Hoarse

      Yeah, but that’s not nearly as dramatic a story……..

  • Henry Bibby

    When USC wins another Heisman and NC with Max Browne at QB, I will be the first one to remember this tweet and give thanks for Lane Kiffin’s recruiting.

    • Bill

      That might be hard to do when Max Browne wins the Rob Johnson award for losing to the Bruins four year in a row!

  • Stu Azole

    dopey SC fans don’t see this for what it is… a PC way of begging to start next week.

  • Stu Azole

    a bigger reason Max is there is because he got really, really bad advice coming out of HS.

    • Trojan Hoarse

      And your mother got even worse advice when she was told to keep the baby……..

  • anno nimus

    I’m getting a whole different message from reading that tweet, I see him transferring when the season is over.
