USC fires noted douche bag

Lane Kiffin is one of the worst coaches I can recall. So it is not surprising he got the ax at USC. What is surprising is that Tennessee then USC ever gave this tool the time of day. Good riddance to Lanie!

What felt inevitable finally happened Sunday morning: Head coachLane Kiffin was fired at USC. 

The team issued the following press release:

Lane Kiffin has been relieved of his duties as USC’s head football coach, Trojan athletic director Pat Haden announced early today (Sept. 29). Haden informed Kiffin of his termination upon the team charter’s arrival back in Los Angeles early Sunday morning following USC’s 62-41 loss at Arizona State.

Kiffin’s Trojans have lost 7 of their past 11 games. USC is 3-2 this year and has lost both of its Pac-12 games. His overall record in 4 years at USC is 28-15.

Haden will hold a press conference at USC on Sunday afternoon at a time and place to be announced. 

So, who replaces Kiffin? Jack Del Rio? How about Bobby Petrino? I mean since USC obviously cares squat about character. If they hired an idiot like Kiffin, why not Petrino? Yes he is an idiot, but unlike Kiffin he can coach!

 

Gators roll Vols again, Driskel gone for the season

Primary logo for all UF athletics since the ea...

 

Feel awful for Driskel, but the good news for Gator fans is that Tyler Murphy was very impressive. In my view, the offense looked better than it has since early last season under Murphy. And our defense looked awesome again

 

The second Jeff Driskel started waving for help, Florida coach Will Muschamp knew it was bad.

It turned out to be the worst-case scenario.

Driskel broke his lower right leg Saturday in the first quarter of the 19th-ranked Gators’ 31-17 victory over Tennessee, a season-ending injury that thrust seldom-used backup Tyler Murphyonto the field for the most significant action of his four-year career.

Murphy responded better than anyone could have realistically expected.

He had a 52-yard touchdown throw to Solomon Patton, a swing pass that went the distance, and made several huge plays with his legs as Florida (2-1, 1-0 SEC) won its ninth consecutive game in the series.

 

So, will Murphy be a new star?

 

But a funny thing happened when Murphy, a former two-star recruit who owned few college offers during his senior year of high school, took the field: The offense actually went forward. There were some hiccups and gaffes along the way, but Murphy was able to lead the Gators to 17 straight first-half points in Florida’s 31-17 win over the Vols.

He threw for 134 yards and a touchdown, while rushing for 84 yards and another score. After a mostly laughable first half filled with turnovers and head-scratchers from both teams, Murphy looked poised and controlled in his first career win.

“It wasn’t the way I wanted it, but an opportunity is an opportunity,” said Murphy, who was a very late addition to Urban Meyer’s 2010 recruiting class.
