""It's going to be a whole new family atmosphere next season and you can quote me on that. For the seniors, it's terrible." - Zach Banner, quoted in the ESPN article
That's a lovely thought, but Lane Kiffin - if he is able or willing - would have to repair the things that allowed this scuffle to happen first or it will scarcely matter who the next QB is or who comes into replace Monte as DC. We knew that Kiffin was not the best leader, and football is a game that ignites passion in players, but for a team with the historic expectations of USC, this display should be seen as embarrassing. If that is what the USC locker can become, you have to wonder if Pat Haden has already begun to have second or perhaps third thoughts, even if it would be difficult for him to do something right this minute.
