When people are desperate, their true colors show. Take the USC coach, captain of an underachieving ship. His true color: SHADY! #goKylie
Lane Kiffin's true color is "Shady", I love that

I'd love to chime in here haha.

First off, every writer has been taking this opportunity to take a shot at Lane Kiffin, when this is a calculated risk on a numbers game forced by the NCAA sanctions on USC.

What happened was a senior failed to graduate on time, thus keeping him till June. That spot that was going to open up was to be used on an Early Enrollee.

When you look at the early enrollee's that USC is expecting, Kylie Fitts seemed like the most logical choice to ask to enroll in the fall rather than the spring. He never pulled an offer and Fitts is still being strongly recruited by USC. In fact, Coach Orgeron was at Fitts' house Sunday night to explain the situation and Fitts decided to take another unofficial visit to USC on the Friday before signing day.

When I say calculated risk, it's more of the case of which of the EEs can you convince to stick around till the fall?

Su'a Cravens is the top safety and has a chance to start right away, you bring him in early.

Max Browne could be the starter, so you get him extra time.

Justin Davis is in an open battle for the backup running back spot (maybe even starter), you get him spring experience.

Chris Hawkins NEEDS extra time in the weight room.

Kenny Bigelow is from the North East, asking him to wait (not to mention he could start year one), you get him locked in ASAP.

Finally, Leon McQuay III would have bolted to FSU so quick if USC asked him to wait.

Kylie Fitts has a wrist injury that would have limited him during spring training anyway. Became the most logical person to ask to wait till the fall.

If the senior graduated on time, we wouldn't have had this conversation.

What Brandon says is true, but I still hate Kiffin and it doesn't make it any less crappy for the kid involved. Sadly, this is the business side of collegiate recruiting at work. The only reason that it is really a story is because Kiffin's name is attached. However, if this would have been any SEC team people would have been screaming bloody murder.

It's ridiculous that this gets HUGE front page news when it is Kiffin or the SEC 'oversigns' then has the pick of the litter.

This happens SO many times in recruiting and it sucks for the kid, but it happens.

Also, many people take Coach Bruich's tweet (who hates USC and was actually dumb to burn this bridge) and runs with it, but fails to read Kylie Fitts' tweets where he says the USC coaching staff (including Kiffin) is a great group of people.

LOL, Robert. Some SEC schools over sign, process players, and gray shirt. My school isn't one of them, yours is. :raz:
