I'm "extremely disappointed" or Lame and the blame game

According to a story by Mark Saxon of ESPN LA, Lame is blaming his inability to get a field goal in the last seconds of regulation on the officials.

“USC coach Lane Kiffin said he was "extremely disappointed" in the Pac-12 officials following his team's 56-48 triple-overtime loss to Stanford on Saturday for the way the fourth quarter ended.

USC began the final play of the quarter with nine seconds left. Quarterback Matt Barkley completed a screen pass to receiver Robert Woods near the USC sideline, but Woods ran all the way across the field and was tackled just short of going out of bounds. Officials initially ruled that Woods went out of bounds. After reviewing the play, they ruled that his knee was down, but that regulation time had ended before USC could call a timeout on Stanford's 33.

USC kicker Andre Heidari had kicked a 50-yard field goal earlier in the game.

"I told them, 'When the replay comes back, you're going to say, 'His knee's down.' The side judge right there says you called timeout and you get to kick a 50-yard field goal and win the game," Kiffin said. "He goes over and tells them. He comes back over and it goes against us. I'm extremely disappointed in that."
