His mother must be a ****. I know, ****s deserve more respect.

wow what a piece of shit. **** USC **** Lane Kiffin
This kind of behavior from usc? Shocking.
obviously something you shouldnt say publicly, but are you guys saying el paso isnt shitty?
I'll bet Pat Hayden is pleased, it will be interesting to see what he says.
Simple solution. Don't put a bowl game in El Paso. Nobody wants to go to that shit stain.
thats a terribly written article.
And I don't think it's that big of a deal
It's manners 101, which USC apparently didn't pass.
Went to the 2009 Sun Bowl. The city rolled out the red carpet for the teams. Stanford acted like stuck up babies, just like USC did. The Sooners were respectful and had a great time.
People who say El Paso sucks piss me off. We had a blast. Ate lots of great Tex Mex, watched a great game in a really cool setting, checked out a few bars and enjoyed a lot of hospitality from the locals. Could have gone up to Las Cruces and seen Old Mesilla or up to Ruidoso, but didn't find it necessary. Had just as good of a time in El Paso as I did when I went to the Fiesta Bowl or the Cotton Bowl. Seriously, it's not like bowl games are played in exotic locations and its not like you have to move to the city where the bowl is played. At most you are there a week. There are way worse ways to spend your time than visiting El Paso.

And this surprises us because???????????????????
If Pat Hayden is such a classy guy, why is it that this turd is still head coach of the condoms?
I think that next they will keep him while USC has losing seasons until the probation is over. Then when they get their scholarship limits back, I think they will fire him and let the new coach bring in his 30 scholarship athletes. By that time Leach will be ready for that job. LOL
According to espn the only noteworthy news outta El Paso is that Barkley will not be playing.
love it ... love how kiffin's act is reflecting on/to his players. entitlement is the enemy of hard work. also see some of this down in austin.
IF kiffen has another year like this year, he will be gone. The guy has NEVER done anything as a HC, and I never understood all the love for him
I don't blame them for being upset about playing in El Paso but I do blame them (and Kiffin) for acting shitty about it. There are far too many bowls that nobody gives a damn about. Did you see how many people were in the stadium at that Baylor game last night?? Tons of empty seats.
Let me guess... you are one of those people that show up late to EVERYTHING and can't figure out why people get pissed all the time...
Screw Kiffin and the trojan horse he rode in on! As for El Paso, I was stationed there for two + years and moved back there years later.
I loved the people, climate and culture. Sorry if some of you find it "shitty" like your pals Lane & the rubbers do!
Soonerprices, of course I enjoy my occasional visits (went to see our Sooners @ the Sun Bowl & the UTEP game this year),
but then I have "local knowledge". It just saddens me that the city & my EP buds get slammed by people who don't know
shit from Shinola! (note: the food in EP is NOT tex-mex... it is real Mexican)
I can't stand Kiffin but i believe it's been confirmed that their plane was late.
This makes one more bowl game I'm mildly interested in... Go GT!!!
It's just amazing how every other team has always found a way to make it there on time. And, they weren't late because of their flight. You say it was a poorly written article, yet you didn't seem to read it. Their EXCUSE is that the flight made them late to their practice which then made them late.
They could have made it on time but CHOSE not to. They could have planned their flight properly and with enough time to cover any deviations from the schedule, but they CHOSE not to.
Once again, another epic fail on your part bounce... and again, it shows a lot about your own character that you seem to think this is not only fine, but that you need to defend them. lol
I never said ti was fine, just that it wasn't a big deal. I'm guessing this happens quite a bit but it was only reported b/c it was kiffin and usc
Traxx, I'm guessing you have never been late to a meeting or event b/c your flight was late? Believe it or not, flying 80+ people can be a logistics nightmare.
I was never able to enjoy the food on my 2 trips to El Paso. Went across the border for dental work both times. Wished I could have enjoyed my trips more. Seemed like a fun town to me. I guess not Cali-fun though.
here's the thing bounce ... when i make a work road trip, i represent my company in everything i do ... whether it be showing up late at a meeting or telling a dumb joke at lunch.
it may seem like "no big deal" but it is. maybe its no big deal if a player shows up 15 minutes late for a workout session, or to tutoring or class or curfew. everyone will have their own excuse. its the little things like this that are the "biggest deals". what kiffin does has the biggest impact on his players. he can't say one thing to them and do the other.
**** those pussies.
Bounce, I get where your going. A flight delay is out of their control. They could have shortened practice though. They could have made adjustments to their timeline to make up for the delay in the flight. It is disrespectful (if true) to the people putting on the events for the bowl if one of the team shows up as late as is reported.
your questioning the objectivity of the blog and then chose to believe the credibility of the usc sports info department? read all the tweets, if it was just one player than ... okay ... but all of them having the same "**** this bowl" attitude is a culture that reflects on kiffin. and that culture is built on the little things like "showing up on time for a meeting ... no excuse period".
If I was Kiffin and after the tweets I'd make every opportunity to ensure we were 100% appreciative of El Paso and the bowl. I'd go above and beyond but Kiffin doesn't care what others think. That's not always a bad thing but in this situation it's a character flaw.
I think it's cool as hell that they had to go after a bowl game when there weren't more than about 5 of them. I think they do a good job down there because it is a big deal to them.
Furthermore, being an "on campus" bowl you get to see the unique architecture of the UTEP campus. There is nothing else like it anywhere that I've been.
Expect more California recruits in Sooner uniforms in the coming years. Keep it up USC, I appreaciate it.
