It could not have happened to a more deserving school or a more deserving coach. USC has been nailed by the NCAA, and I, for one, LOVE IT!

USC, the school that gave us O.J. Simpson and Snoop Dogg, the school that gave us Will Ferrell, the school that thinks it can do whatever it wants—whenever it wants—to whoever it wants, is finally getting what's coming.

And so is that turd they hired to be their new head football coach.

Never have I wanted to see someone fail as much as Lane Kiffin. He is the definition of "born with a silver spoon" in his mouth. He's accomplished NOTHING, but to hear him tell it, he's Urban Meyer, Nick Saban, and Steve Spurrier all rolled into one.

I had serious doubts about his ability to win football games even with USC-caliber recruiting classes. Now, let's see him win with Washington State-caliber classes. Let's be honest, the cream of the crop isn't going to USC to play for Lane Kiffin. Not without the bowl games, the championship possibilities, or the "extra benefits."

This is going to be a train wreck of epic proportions—and nobody deserves it more than Lane Kiffin.

After what he did to Tennessee, even though UT fans and alumni totally fell for his line of BS, he had this coming. He treated a once-proud program like a junior college stepping stone job. He had zero regard for UT tradition. He tried to make Tennessee a USC clone.

And as soon as USC became available, he could not scrape UT off his shoes fast enough. All the time proclaiming that the program had made great strides in his "14 months."

This guy's arrogance knows no limits. But now he is about to be brought down. And BOY is it going to be funny.
