How Valuable Are Those Five Scholarships Lane Kiffin Saved?

With all of USC’s depth problems, the decision of Lane Kiffin to save five scholarships last February instead of adding more players to the Trojans’ roster? USC could have added another more cornerbacks, wide receivers, etc.
Some will say USC had late decommitments but Kiffin said he chose not to go after other players that wanted to come to USC because they were not to the level he wanted. That makes sense if you don’t consider the roster is so depleted that he really needed bodies more than anything else.

          • marvgoux1

            You are defending us losing to a team that generated 2 first downs in the entire second half?

          • Trojan Hoarse

            My comments were intended to be more of an indictment of Wolfies melodramatic writing style as opposed to defending the poor second half performance of our offense in the ND game…

      It’s called a typo. You forgot to capitalize the h in “he” so you don’t have much room to complain. Don’t step to Wolf or you will be in a world of pain.

      • CardinalnGold

        “He” is supposed to be a journalist. He gets paid to run this blog. He should do better.

        • ProbationU

          And he hasn’t corrected it yet…so he is really looking at this closely. Which school of journalism did he go to? Must have been some online school.

            see. that is high quality trolling.

            That might be the worst thing you can say about USC…clearly the standards at the journalism school are pretty darned low. Thanks, Scott!

          • ProbationU

            Did Wolf go to SC? If so, not aware. But then, it IS the Daily News, so clearly not the cream of the crop.

          • TrojanFamily

            Sadly, yes. It’s why it drives me so crazy when he has such low standards.

  • trojandude207

    I guess Scott doesn’t care how his posts look. As far as scholarships it costs USC double every time they do not get a player. First because they don’t play for USC, and second when USC has to play them (and they usually have something to prove against USC) Wasted scholarships is just one of many faults with Kiffin.

  • Helen

    And why is it depleted Scottie – because of sanctions.

    • Stu Azole

      and why were there sanctions? Pete cheated!

      • TrojanFan

        No, Reggie cheated!

          ah, so we finally admit SC’s players were cheating. Thank you.

    • marvgoux1

      And who didn’t contest the sanctions?

  • Stu Azole

    I see Wolfie and I are on the same page. I raised the 5 scholarship issue yesterday and BAM, there he is. But what he is leaving for me to stress is that without a coach in place to convince EE’s to give SC a shot, NOBODY of any real skill will even take one of the 5 leftover rides come early January. Now THERE’s a kick in the crotch.

    • TrojanFamily

      Nice. So Bucket is Stu. Just how many logins do you have?

      • Stu Azole

        Just one my friend

  • sureshot32

    Not having those five scholarships certainly hurts the team in the short run, but should help Pat Haden land a better coach. The new coach will be able to hand out 20 scholarships in his first year instead of handing out 15. This means the new coach will be down a total of five scholarships… which should help land a Chris Petersen, Kevin Sumlin, or Art Briles type of coach.

    • Stu Azole

      dopey troxan. New coach can only use the 5 left over from February if the kids are EE’s. They don’t just carry over. So, unless there’s a coach on board before the end of December, and good players are actually comfortable jumping on board without having been recruited very hard by said coach and have finished taking all of their other visits and are actually able to enroll early, those rides will go to waste! LOL!!!

      For what it’s worth, NONE of the coaches you mentioned will be done with their seasons in time to recruit EE’s to SC.

    I hope Pommee gets his life together. At such a tender young age he’s already made several HUGE mistakes. Obviously, he NEVER should have been admitted to that cess pool, fig tech. It’s slime and crime ridden. Cheating, drugs, and shootings are regular occurrance’s (and that’s just on the practice field). People like Pommee and “spittin’ and gropin” Tyler, need positive role models, while SUCks is full of ho’s, pimps, and foolish wanna be white boys flashing daddy’s bling bling. Pommee seemed like such a fine young FAMILY man, but obviously he had ZERO chance of succeeding once he found himself surrounded by all that filth, slime and sleazyness on campus. Fig Tech deserves to be burned down, reduced to ashes, and covered in salt.

    Lane Kiffins Philosophy was so warped that it was Comical, anybody with a brain knows those scholarships should have been filled considering USC’s depth problems. And once again Kiffin does not have the eye to spot Talent that’s out there unless they are 4 and 5 star recruits. Which is why he did not use the available scholarships that were available, sometimes you have to trust your eye and your ability to evaluate raw Talent.
