The last time we visited the subject it was Kiffin changing jersey numbers during the game in an effort to trick Colorado. Yes, Colorado.
So, we move two weeks ahead and what's he done now? (OK, a football manager was the one who actually DID it. But still...smells like, looks like...)
The gift that keeps on giving...A USC football student manager has been relieved of all duties with the Trojan football team for intentionally deflating, below NCAA-regulated levels, some game footballs used by USC's team during the first half in last Saturday's game against Oregon.
Game officials discovered and re-inflated three of the balls before the game and two others at halftime. All balls were regulation in the second half.
When informed of this allegation by the Pac-12, USC investigated it immediately. The student manager confirmed that he had, without the knowledge of, or instruction from, any USC student-athlete, coach, staff member or administrator, deflated those game balls after they had been tested and approved by officials prior to the game.
As a result, the Pac-12 reprimanded USC and imposed a fine.
