    Should Buckeye fans be nervous that Meyer carries a trojan in his pocket?

    Come on man. Lane's problem is he is not a good coach. He's been bad everywhere he's been a head coach. He sucked in Oakland, went 7-6 in his one year at UT. And has underperformed every year at USC. Not sure why anyone still thinks he can win.

    I guess Agholor is happy about his financial decision to play for USC

    Well lets look at the situations he was put in. The Oakland job sucked and he was working for Al Davis. UT's talent level was down when he was there which is the reason he got the job in the first place. USC he under performed. He can certainly be a position coach or coordinator. There is a decent chance he gets a head coaching job if he wants to in the next few years. There are a lot of bad football programs out there. Lane does a pretty good job in the evaluation and recruiting part. He failed to pick a QB though which lead to his downfall.

    If Skip Holtz can get another head coaching job Lane Kiffin can.

    The sad part of this is that he will probably get mega bucks because they ended his contract early and he will go to the NFL and make millions again. Only in America can you make money when you perform poorly.

    InsideUSC ‏@InsideUSC 10m
    Lane Kiffin got pulled off the team bus at Los Angeles International Airport by Pat Haden when he was fired #USC


    InsideUSC ‏@InsideUSC 7m
    I'm told Lane Kiffin told the bus to wait but then #USC administrators told it to go back to campus without him


    InsideUSC ‏@InsideUSC 2m
    Pat Haden, J.K. McKay, Steve Lopes, Mark Jackson (#USC administrators) met with Lane Kiffin at LAX parking lot to dismiss him

    InsideUSC ‏@InsideUSC 2m
    I'm told the decision to fire Lane Kiffin was made during the third quarter of the loss to Arizona State #USC

    InsideUSC ‏@InsideUSC 1m
    Here is what happened: A.D. Pat Haden and three administrators including J.K. McKay left game and huddled in small room during 3rd Q #USC

    Was just thinking of Agholor.....so losing and your coach getting sh*tcanned in the middle of year 2. This is what you signed up for?


    Great decision.

    Canned in the parking lot! Poetic justice for leaving TN like he did, but man that is cold.

    I worked for a company that once fired a DM at the airport. She went to pick up a RVP for a district visit. The RVP landed...fired her in the terminal ...and hopped on the next flight out. She had to have her husband pick her up because she could not drive the company car she drove to the airport. Business is arctic my friends.

    Go easy on Nelson Agholor. He could transfer to UF with 3 years to play 2 and play next season if the NCAA grants him a waiver of the one year sit out rule because his head coach was fired.....

    Yeah, I wonder what Agholor and Leon McQuay III are thinking now. Same thing for the DE Leonard and the LB from Daytona Beach Mainland who chose Kiffy over UF.

    Kiffin will soon be on tv as an analyst, probably in a role similar to Corso. In fact, if I were ESPN, I'd snatch him up to be Corso's replacement. And Kiffin's young...we'll be looking at his stupid face for the next 30+ years.
