I posted on facebook yesterday that I thought the move to bring in Lane Kiffin as the coach of USC was well played. That doesn’t mean I was happy about it but if you look at the people that he is bringing with him USC won’t skip a beat and in fact my get much better.
College football is all about assistant coaches and recruits. You must have both to be successful. USC has slipped this year because it keeps losing good coaches and UCLA had been stealing many of it’s prized recruits. Kiffin bring with him assistant coaches that aren’t going to be head coaches and are considered the best in their fields. Kiffin is also going to bring in the high profile recruits because he plays high profile football.
I am having fun laughing at the SEC people in this. Most are trying to brush him off as a bad coach but it is poor cover for the fact that Tennessee almost beat both Florida and Alabama. The SEC tends to think that no one is better than them and no one would ever choose anybody else over them. I feel for the fans of Tennessee because they lost a good coach who made them relevant again. The sun will rise tomorrow and they will cause some up and coming school to be heart broken by the end of the week.
