A USC-Cal Memory

Here’s a USC-Cal game memory: In 2011, when the game was played at AT&T Park, Lane Kiffin came up to me after his radio interview on 710-AM and joked, “I made you famous.” After being congratulated for the victory, Kiffin said on air, “Tell Scott Wolf that. He’s acting like we lost by 30.”
The truth was Kiffin and I had just talked about how USC won but many questions after the game focused on the offense’s struggles. But he showed his sense of humor on the radio.

    My, how things change. Lane is probably wishing he were in the sort of position that allowed Scott to cover him now.

    Is there 2 people who deserve each other more than Kiffin and Wolf? They both think they are the smartest in the room and have personality of frog.

      My thoughts exactly Scott see fly poop in pepper and Lane is guy in the elevator who farts and gives everyone else a dirty look. Scott was banned by Lane, Lane was panned by Scott.

      Kiffin was the OC on 2 National Champions, what has Sweatshirt Scott won?

      • Old Trojans never die

        He bet against the Trojans both years. I believe he thinks his negativity gives him credibility.

    The infatuation continues. How many years removed are we now? My oh my how Flow must have been “excited” (down there) when Kiffin actually spoke directly to him.

      It is called a mancrush…no doubt about it.

    Doesn’t Wolf know that San Francisco has the reputation of a romantic city?

    Never fails, there is always that one guy who just can’t pick up on the flirting signals.

    This is just sad.

    I don’t think fans will ever stop talking about the day Kiffin appeared on Scott Wolf’s show. Great to reminisce this moment in the rich Cal-SC rivalry. I think my favorite memory is when Desean Jackson ran a route that resulted in his decapitated by Kevin Ellison just as the ball was about to arrive. They must’ve super glued his head back on to finish out that game. I think those kind of hits are the one Donald Trump was getting sentimental about last night.
