Football makes for strange bedfellows. And exciting drama. Green Bay Packers’ quarterback Brett Favre retired. Then came out of retirement. Then retired again. Then came out of retirement. Again. Lane Kiffin was hired to run the Oakland Raiders and ran them to a 5-15 record, and a big mess. He was run out of town by team owner Al Davis. Kiffin went to Tennessee for a year. Now he’s gone. Again. Where did Kiffin turn up? Dan Wetzel:
USC, which is facing a multi-sport, department-wide NCAA bloodletting next month, just hired a guy who in his tenure at Tennessee was a walking secondary violation (six of them), had two players booted off the team after an attempted armed robbery and leaves with NCAA investigators looking into how the program used recruiting hostesses. And, of course, he was a Trojan assistant when the compliance trouble USC must answer for began.
A mess at USC, a mess at Oakland, a mess at Tennessee. Let me predict a mess at USC.
