Now THAT is Stanford Football!
Anyone else want to get popped in the mouth?
Los Angeles Times columnist Bill Plaschke tells it like it is to Lane Kiffin
In LA Times columnist Bill Plaschke’s latest he reminds Lane Kiffin that USC football is NOT about some piss-ant coach getting his way on Complete Bullshit…
“Earlier this week, angered by a question about the return of an injured player, Lane Kiffin stormed out of a daily news conference after less than 30 seconds.
I don’t need that long to give him some advice.
Chill out, dude. Stop sweating the small stuff. End these weekly tiffs with the media. Worry less about hiding injuries and more about hitting linebackers. You are distracting your team and clouding your mission.”
Double Amen to that Bill!
The problem for us here at Coaches Hot Seat with Lane Kiffin being the head football coach at USC is that we have been following and going to USC football games in Los Angeles and around the country for 35 years plus and during those 35 years when USC wasn’t playing Stanford we were always pulling for USC….
….with Lane Kiffin now leading the Trojans how in the Hell can we pull for a team that is led by a…
Pompous Arrogant Ass that believes he is God’s Gift to Planet Earth?
Answer: WE CAN’T!
Our only advice to Lane Kiffin is that after watching, observing and listening to Lane at USC under Pete Carroll and with the Oakland Raiders, after seeing the Idiotic way that Lane handled himself at the University of Tennessee and seeing Lane back at USC the last couple of years we can honestly say to Lane that about HALF the stuff you are worried about has…
NOTHING to do with USC football winning football games.
If Lane Kiffin wants to keep worrying about and obsessing over things that have…
NOTHING to do with USC football winning football games
….then have at it Lane BUT we have a heads-up for Lane Kiffin as well:
If you lose this job Lane Kiffin and don’t think for a second that the “Powers That Be” at USC wouldn’t fire you in a second if they thought YOU…
Were going to continue to act like an Idiot and embarrass the University of Southern California
Were not winning at the level that USC football is expected to win at which is a Very Damn High level
….then you will find your rear-end out on the street and your current lifestyle is going to take a HUGE hit and before you hit 40 years old your head coaching career will be over at least at the I-A level in college football.
A quote for Lane Kiffin
“God, give us grace to accept with serenity the things that cannot be changed, courage to change the things that should be changed, and the wisdom to distinguish the one from the other.” Reinhold Niebuhr, The Serenity Prayer (1943)
In other words Lane….
Quit worrying about Bullshit.
