    No, I'm sure he's most happy to have been on a 7-6 team last year and a team that had clearly quit on its coach and saw him get fired this year with no prospect of things getting any better next year given the severe scholarship sanctions in place.

    That's got to be so much better than UF's mere 11-2 record last year and stable coaching staff. :lie:

    In the 3rd quarter Southern Cal scored a Touchdown. Kiffy went to high 5 everyone and.......nobody would high 5 him. They just left him hanging there....like a dork. Rejected. :laugh:

    Pat Haden and the other Southern Cal admins had seen enough.

    Kiffin once told Alshon Jeffery he'd be pumping gas if he played for SCe. Alshon had quite the day today in response to Kiffin's firing no doubt.

    Correct, Layla is a UF grad wearing the UT shade of orange in the above pic.

    Don't you just love the sound of her first name? :wink:

    meanwhile in an older and seldom used part of LAX...

    I can easily imagine how this went.

    Hayden (as the coaches go to get on the bus): "All you coaching for USC can get back on the bus."

    Hayden (in his best Lee Corso voice): "Kiffen, Not So Fast............"
    ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    (from a Texas fan)

    "Can we borrow Pat Haden for a day?"

    See this InsideUSC twitter feed for some insight into Kiffin at USC and how h got fired...

    https://twitter.com/insideusc

    Pulled off the team bus and fired in the parking lot. Ouch.

    Here's a quote that won't surprise anyone:

    "Lane Kiffin became even more arrogant and disliked after 11-2 season in 2011. That was real beginning of the end..."

    Yeah Kiffy spurned 'em but UT fans were in lockstep with their p.o.s. until he burned 'em. Kiffin was an a-hole and the TN fanbase defended his every action. They deserved to get hurt.
