A new day, a new game, a new coach, a new life.
Interim Head Coach Ed Orgeron of USC debuted his awesome possum leadership skills last week during the Trojan’s 38-31 win against the Arizona Wildcats. Even USC Athletic Director, Pat Haden, was impressed with the atmosphere in the Trojan’s locker room before the Arizona game: “I’ve never seen anything like it. It was unbelievable.”
After the victory over Arizona, Haden said “Coach O was awesome” and cited the energy and joy of the players. Rather than quietly contemplating the start of the game, music filled the locker room.
“I don’t know what the music was,” Haden said. “It’s not on my iPod — it was weird music, but they loved it.” Nice. Too bad Kiffin’s favorite music is Taylor Swift.
I think we can all agree that the Trojans might have found their future and Lane Kiffin is really really depressed about it. You could see how depressed he is if you watched him last Saturday at the College Gameday broadcast at Washington University, where Chris Fowler interviewed the poor bastard, asking him about his recent flame out with USC. With chants of “You Got Fired” resounding behind him, Kiffin insisted that he still loves coaching and described the experience of watching USC defeat Arizona as “like watching someone else raise your kids.” Yea, kids who don’t love you. How does that feel Kiffy?
Before concluding his interview with Fowler, Kiffin signaled to athletic directors around the country that he was ready to try again, referencing his “next job” and “young age.”
Puke in my mouth Kiffin. You probably won’t get hired somewhere until the off-season. Calm down. With keeping young age in mind, can you answer me this: What have you accomplished? What positive effect have you had on the world? Every job you had as a head coach, you were fired or immediately left in shambles, leaving only a Sewage System in your name. Enough about Kiffin, he is dunzo and we shouldn’t waste anymore of our valuable time on the useless douche of a coach.
Whether Orgeron will remain the head coach remains to be seen. Despite the win, there was still some gaping problems no one can ignore like a depleting defense that gives up in the second half and an offense still trying to find its footing with a newcomer quarterback. However, it was still pretty freaking sweet seeing them win, and having fun while doing it.
Orgeron is bringing the fire and passion back to the game, something Kiffin was sorely lacking. Even though it seems like the most important thing right now is to win, I think the hope that Orgeron represents is far more important, especially to the players. The players are the ones who need that hope to drive them to go to practice at 6am, the drive to play for a coach they actually want to play for, the drive they need to WIN.
