By “Top 10 Lane Kiffin Tweets” we mean “Top 10 Anti-Lane Kiffin Tweets” because after Saturday, what other kind of Lane Kiffin tweet could there be? Ranked #1 in pre-season standings, USC’s football team finished the season unranked with a 7-5 record. This Saturday’s season-ending loss to Notre Dame was salt in the wound.
At this point, nothing short of quartering head coach Kiffin and spiking his head on Tommy Trojan’s sword could satisfy USC fans. (Throw in his dad, defensive coordinator Monte Kiffin, for good measure.) Until then, there’s Twitter, where fans were vociferous in their contempt for Kiffin. In case you’re wondering, the reviled USC coach has a Twitter account (@lane_kiffin) with 28,709 followers and nary a peep since before game day.
