All Aboard The bLame Train: Blame Kiffin Looking For Scapegoats

Lane_kiffin_presser_-_tilt_left_medium

Not 36 hours after former Heisman trophy candidate Matt Barkley held his almost tear-filled press conference and said this...

"We got to just not put the blame on anybody, learn from our mistakes and make sure we bounce back."

...in the wake of their manhandling at the hands of the Stanford Cardinal, it looks like the master of diplomacy himself, Lane Kiffin, had some other ideas about that:

USC Trojans coach Lane Kiffin was puzzled by two "really poor decisions" made by Trojans quarterback Matt Barkley in the second quarter of USC's 21-14 road loss to Stanford on Saturday.

And Kiffin went as far to call them some of the worst decisions he's ever seen Barkley make.

And I doubt this is the last stop on the Blame Train for Mr. Kiffin. It boggles the mind that there's actually someone out there that makes Barkley look like the adult in the room, so hats off to Lane.

Speaking of childish antics, Grantland.com appears to have picked up a rather plausible exchange that went down on Saturday given Kiffin's past history up to and including today:

Josh Nunes threw a game-winning 37-yard touchdown to Zach Ertz as no. 21 Stanford upset no. 2 USC 21-14, beating the Trojans for the fourth straight year. In response to the loss, USC head coach Lane Kiffin threw down his clipboard, stormed up to his father (legendary defensive coordinator Monte Kiffin), and shouted, "Daddy, make them win! Make the dumb men win!" The elder Kiffin tried to reason with him, but Lane kept screaming until his mother came down from the stands, hugged him, and shot an accusatory look at her husband. "Wait, what did I do?" he asked, but Lane pouted and said, "Daddy's mean, mommy!" She nodded and patted his head, and asked Monte why he couldn't just make them win and make his son happy for once.

All Aboard!
