Kudos to Lane Kiffin for not taking any crap from the NCAA. He feels that we got screwed; and he’s telling it like it is. Better yet – he’s not backing down or apologizing for it.
His quote here says it all: “As for my reprimand and fine, after numerous conversations with the conference office, we have agreed to disagree. As I have been saying the past two days, we have moved on from last week’s game and we are preparing for a very challenging conference game this Friday at Colorado.”
I love it – it’s like saying “Fuck You” without having to say it. Thank You for standing your ground for us, Lane; and for continuing to lead our Trojans back to glory.
As for T.J. McDonald; I was watching the game from my seat in the Coliseum, (which is where I am for every home game unless physically unable to be there,) so I didn’t get an up close view or the benefit of replay. I hear from those who watched the game on TV that the hit was replayed several times – and it was clearly a bullshit penalty. You’re really making it hard to appear fair, NCAA.
Keep up the good work, Trojans!
P.S. Lane, Go for two in 1OT the next chance you get.
