USC coach Lane Kiffin has been called pretty much every name in the book, but during College Gameday, radio host Paul Finebaum handed out one of the worst insults ever leveled on Kiffin.
He called him the Miley Cyrus of college football.
“How did someone like Lane Kiffin ever get these jobs?” Finebaum said. “How did he land the Raiders job? At Tennessee? And particularly the one at SC? People think it’s because of his father, Monte, the great defensive wizard. In some respects, Lane Kiffin is the Miley Cyrus of college football. He has very little talent, but we simply can’t take our eyes off him.”
It’s hard to argue with Finebaum’s words. Kiffin continues to get high-profile jobs, but he’s done very little to earn them. He had an early pass at USC because of the NCAA sanctions and because he was able to bring in some high-profile recruits. However, the team’s poor performance at the end of last year and its dismal start this season has put him squarely on the hot seat.
