Notre Dame vs USC: Why the USC Trojans Will Not Beat the Notre Dame Fighting Irish

Jayne Kamin-Oncea – US PRESSWIRE

So the Top-Ranked Notre Dame Fighting Irish are just a few hours and one single win away from being on its way to the BCS Championship Game.

But that one win is in Los Angeles, California, against its hated rival in the USC Trojans

Even though the Irish lead the All-Time Series 43-34-5, the Trojans have owned the last 10 years going 8-1 (2005 win was vacated due to rules violations).

Not shaping up too well for Notre Dame right?

Wrong…

There are three reasons why USC will not win this game…

One… Lane Kiffin…
Two… Lane Kiffin…
Three… Lane Kiffin…

That’s right ladies and gentlemen, Trojan Head Coach Lane Kiffin is the greatest con-man and phoney in the history of College Football.

Seriously…

Name one big game he has won…

(crickets)

That’s right…

He hasn’t won anything and is simply not a big-time, big-game elite coach.

But at $4 million a year he is paid like one!

If Kiffin isn’t a con-artist, he is one lucky Son-of-a-Gun though…

The 37-year-old Kiffin was handed the head coaching job for the Oakland Raiders, then for the Tennessee Volunteers before being blessed with the job at USC.

All while compiling a 5-15 NFL mark, a 7-6 (4-4 in the SEC)and a 25-11, 17-10 in the Pac-12.

But all you USC homers are probably screaming, “But Kiffin is 25-11 and 17-10…”

(yawn)

Name one big win in his coaching career…

Oh yeah there was that time…

No…

Wait…

That’s right folks…

He doesn’t have one…

And he will not get one today either…

Meanwhile, on the other side of the field you have a guy who won big games with the Cincinnati Bearcats.

Wonder how that feels for Kiffin to look across the field and see what success looks like in Brian Kelly.

So it is college football and a big rival game and anything can happen when you are dealing with 18-21 year-olds.

But don’t bet on it…

Cause Kiffin wouldn’t know what to do win a big game even if Nick Saban was standing next to him telling him what to do.

The truth hurts Trojan fans…

But Notre Dame rolls into the Title Game.
