    BREAKING NEWS.. Kiffin asked Mora if he could use him as a reference when sending out job applications.

      Maybe they were arguing over whose dad could kick the others ar$e……..

      • TrojanFamily

        playoffs? who’s talkin bout playoffs? playoffs??

    • rusoviet

      Frankly it wouldn’t surprise me if Kiffin was hired by Mora after what Torian White just got charged with – at least sit would get the media talking about something else.

  • 8clappppppppp

    I think Jimmy is busy with other ‘pressing’ issues…

    “UCLA offensive tackle Torian White was arrested on suspicion of sexual assault early Sunday morning. “We are aware of the situation involving Torian White, and we take these accusations very seriously,” UCLA Coach Jim Mora said in statement.”

    • Trojan Hoarse

      Ouch…….That’s an unfortunate situation……

    • JJ Griffiths

      yeah, thats not good for anyone.

    • rusoviet

      Ouch! Man what a mess – good luck ‘focusing’ on AZ St. – what a chaotic mess.

    • FIGHTONtoVICTORY

      While the Trojans continue climbing and becoming of the most dangerous teams in the nation, the fucla bRuins are FALLING APART.

      Leaving their own program in shambles!
      Only to be expected with a hothead coach with no discipline!

      • TrojanFamily

        slightly overstated, don’t you think? I give Mora credit for suspending him (although he was out anyway with an injury, so it was an easy call).

        • ProbationU

          He would have been suspended even he was healthy. After all, this isn’t Florida State.

          A few years ago, we had 3 freshman football players kicked off the team for stealing laptops. Of course they found new homes at Washington, Colorado and Arizona. I would only assume sexual assault would be taken more seriously than theft.

          Most teams have issues to deal with.It is how they deal with them that sets them apart.

          • EncinitasBruin

            +1. If White is found guilty, it’s off to Oregon with him.

      • EncinitasBruin

        As if it’s a college football coach’s job to make sure that each and every one of his 75 players stays out of trouble and avoids criminal behavior. Absurd. All Mora controls is his response to such an egregious allegation–and he has responded accordingly. If this has never happened at SC, then you have a right to crow. Otherwise, your response is silly.

        • Trojan Hoarse

          Does Reggie Bush ring a bell?…. The alleged “Lack of institutional control” by the NCAA?…..you may have read about it….I agree that it’s completely absurd for any head coach to be held accountable for their players actions, as well as their respective families, especially away from campus….

    • TrojanFamily

      I saw that. I wonder if Bucket’s “muse” ThaiMex, with his convenient moral outrage, will grow just as angry at this one as he does when a USC player is accused.

      • Trojan Hoarse

        Seriously…. I’m surprised he didn’t have a meltdown about Former USC center Dewayne Dedmon being signed by the Golden State Warriors from their D-League affiliate in Santa Cruz…. he suited up last night for the first time in the NBA….. He is now the sixth Trojan currently in the NBA.

        Fight on, Dedmon!……But remember… Dedmon don’t wear plaid…..

      it is disgraceful that trOXans would use this alleged crime as ammunition for cheap shots. the Cadre has never and WILL NEVER engage in any rush to judgement no matter whose player in involved!

      UCLA has a ZERO TOLERANCE policy and that will come to bear as the facts become known!

      • rusoviet

        Hey man quit stealin’ from our prez. kool daddio Obamska – does be his words

      • TrojanFamily

        And yet you raise “character issues” against Orgeron in your question to Wolf (yet of course don’t cite a single one). Do you even read your own posts?

        • TrojanFan

          He reads it, but five second later the thought is gone

          Dementia is some nasty stuff

      • CPEM

        Yep, just look at how they handled Dragovic the first, second, third, and fourth times he was accused of assaulting people…

  • TrojanFamily

    maybe Kiffin wants to call plays for Mora next year…

    Just saying.

    • Trojan Hoarse

      Maybe Mora needs someone to drive the ice cream truck?

      • TrojanFan

        or take care of the footballs, if you know what I mean….HAHA!

  • ScottWolfSniffsHisOwnFarts

    How is this irrelevant to USC?

    • EncinitasBruin

      How is it relevant, period?

      • ScottWolfSniffsHisOwnFarts

        Yes. Relevant. Not irrelevant.
        I must have caught a case of Wolfitis.

  • https://www.facebook.com/charles.bucket.3 Charlie Bucket

    Mora should hire Kiff as a special advisor for the Southern Cal game!!! oh how sugar sweeeet that would be!!

    • FIGHTONtoVICTORY

      Mora should learn how to teach kids discipline.

    • TrojanFan

      Here’s a little special advisor 8===D
      Where would you like it, careful it spits

    • TrojanFamily

      agreed! I like how you think! He can help Mora devise bubble screens, on how to run out the clock while the team is behind, and how to deflate footballs.

      See, your football IQ is growing! Someday little Bucket, you’ll be at pee wee football level!

      Why can we not get Bucket a job coaching UCLA? It would be like having Suckee teach a logic course!

      • TrojanFan

        ….and how to properly hold the Denny’s menu

        Bucket’s mom would be happy if he could get a job. Plus, it would limit his time on the blog. Any relief would be well appreciated

  • Henry Bibby

    Lane > Scott Wolf

    • snarfy

      Now that’s a truism!

  • Henry Bibby

    “UCLA coach Jim Mora told Jim Rome said he received”

    Did you fail English every year?

  • Trippen

    Let it go, please, Mr. Wolf. Lane Kiffin is no longer the coach of USC. The fact that he never engaged a second-tier journalist of virtually no importance may have wounded you, but means very little to anyone else.

  • Independent_George

    I would not be surprised if Lane gives Mora the USC playbook. Lane is shown he is all about Lane.

  • CoachOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO

    Ruins…please go away. Your opinions and comments are irrelevant here. And good job pulling the moral indignation card on the Torian White comments. I’ve read about a million OJ, Reggie Bush, etc. comments from you losers here. Sorry if we offended you. Idiots.

      shut up and put your shoes back on, you must!

      patience for fools, i have not!

      • LittleGreenFool

        Thank you for making CoachOOOOOOOO’s point.

      • TrojanFan

        Fuc dude, who cut your hair?

  • john wolcott

    I would think the only thing Kiff would have to say to Mora is how Kiff will miss playing SUCLA in 2-weeks.
