Party time in Knoxville.

It was a good day in Knoxville when he left.

Which pretty little university shall I set my sights on now? Maybe Texas? Michigan State? After all my dad IS a great defensive coordinator.

Life's daily struggle is choosing between saying F--ck-it, or soldiering on with your responsibilities.

I hate to see the guy get fired. I really believe Lane could have turned USC into Purdue with just a little more time.

An angry fan...rooting for an angry team...led by angry coaches

They deserved each other

Thats what happens when you throw millions of dollars at a coach who hasnt proven himself at all. The only thing that Kiffin ever accomplished waa riding Daddys name into a "career" in coaching. Dude is nothing but an arrogant ass hat who is nothing but a cancer to every program he encounters. Lets all share in a chuckle with Urban this morning. I think there might be a pop warner team in search of a coach somewhere up in Idaho, Lane. Make sure to include references on that application. Im sure all of your former employers with have glowing reviews for you

Wonder where this turd drifts to next?  I would say just promote Clancy Pendergast but his unit just gave up 62 last night.

Dustin Fox was our leading tackler as a corner.... because his guy always caught the ball.

I'm still waiting for him to sing rocky top after he beats Florida. That's still going to happen right guys?

Couldn't have happened to a bigger asshole.

Chalk this up to the least surprising news ever (maybe a bit surprising after 5 games, but really, no, not surprised at all).

Exactly, RDUBS.
Sure didn't see this one coming.

Men (and women) of Troy rejoicing!

I am shocked this hire didn't work out. Lane Kiffin is the perfect suffer name.

To err is human. Really sucking requires having yellow stripes on your helmet.

USC should hire Tosh as an interm head coach cuz their football team can't be more of a joke than it is already, plus he's Lane Kiffins twin  

J.Mo's picture

I was going to joke that his next job is to be Daniel Tosh's stunt double. It's kind of hard for me to hate Kiffin because whenever I see him, I think of the funny **** Daniel Tosh has done.

Hopefully Mack Brown is next.

And then I told her...i'm no weatherman, but tonight's forecast is calling for several inches!

I got no personal problems with Mack Brown. As for Kiffin, someone who never coached against our beloved Buckeyes, we have an enormous amount of animosity towards that douche. Its amazing.
I would  however like Saban to take over Texas just so he has to start over again (albeit with enormous resources).

Will this mean that all the USC gear on the clearance racks in the stores here in Los Angeles will finally start selling?  It's so hard to figure out what USC's massive bandwagon following will do.
I haven't seen any USC flags flying in my neighborhood at all this season.
There IS a Buckeye flag flapping in the California breeze on my street.

Keep the flag flying, Gravey!

I was watching the USC game last night and I just had a feeling I was watching his last game as a coach

Are there any USC commits that could be back in play?

Winning is a habit. Unfortunately, so is losing.

The best part of this in my eyes is the fact that Haden was in such a hurry to fire him he fired him on the team bus...Good things, uh I mean bad things happen to bad people...........

Gentlemen, you can't fight in here its a war room

onetwentyeight's picture

They'll probably make a play for Tom Herman. If they do, I hope he takes it because he deserves it. At least, that's what I'd do if I was Haden. But who knows....

Agree with Chris Peterson. Watch Cowherd thump the tub tomorrow.

This will probably help USC recruiting.

Arkansas might have an opening soon!

ATXbucknut's picture

I think you're right.

MN Buckeye's picture

Yep. USC carries the reputation, the facilities, and the organization. Kiffin was the lightning rod. Recruits dreaming of playing there their whole lives might view 'unknown future coach' as vast improvement over our buddy Lane.

Lol

Look closely, because the closer you think you are, the less you will actually see.

I'm sure there's a few folks over in the Volunteer state just loving this story.

I am not very smart, but I recognize that I am not very smart.

watching Kiffin at USC always made me think "hey, maybe RichRod at Michigan wasn't that bad"

Not here to troll...Go Blue

Wonder if he'll try to steal recruits to his next job...
