Pac-10 College Football Signing Day: USC and Lane Kiffin quit crying about UCLA
February 5, 2010
it makes you look like a petulant, spoiled child. You got just about everything, but you have to cry about not getting some players who went to UCLA. Pete may have cried, but he didn’t feel the need to call out other schools.
Issues? It’s hard to quibble with the nation’s No. 7 recruiting class, particularly when the school was dealing with a coaching transition to Kiffin from Carroll, but there are two things. First, linebacker was a need area that wasn’t sufficiently addressed. Second, the Trojans lost out on a number of prospects to rival UCLA, most notably safety Dietrich Riley and linebacker Jordan Zumwalt
Notes: Kiffin said he expects linebacker Glen Stanley, the lone JC transfer, to play immediately… USC signed players from five states… Kiffin took a shot at the players who picked UCLA over USC in his signing day press conference: “I think, I’ve been gone three years but much hasn’t changed. As you meet the kids there is a sense and I was reminded of the kids that go to UCLA and the kids that come to USC, and to be back here, I watched it over the weekend just to see if it’s the same, and it’s really still the same. I guess we waste time continuing to recruit them, we know within the first 10 minutes whether they’re the type of guys that want to play here or there.”
YES! You wasted your time. Does saying it make you feel better?
Here is something that you can really cry over Lane….
Cry also over this…
You can even cry over the fact that your basketball team is playing for nothing right now
But ultimately you will ruin the USC branding with crybaby antics.
But, the time and dominance is over…The time of you just trying to get whatever you wanted is over. Other schools are on to your tricks Lane. USC doesn’t have the branding or star power like it did in the old days. This is a new era Lane. Get over it and get over yourself.
The fact that you are crying about a couple that got away makes me think that you are soft. I don’t see other coaches crying like you did and trying to throw shots at kids who didn’t want to be a Trojan Man.
