Lane Kiffin gets injury question, walks out on press conference

Lane Kiffin AP

USC coach Lane Kiffin might have set a record today for the shortest press conference given by a college football coach.

By now, you probably know that Kiffin doesn’t want to talk about injuries and was willing to go to great lengths to make sure they’re not reported. But there’s not much Kiffin can do when he’s asked about them directly… except walk out on the press conference 30 seconds in… which was the case after Wednesday’s practice. When asked about a player’s participation in practice, Kiffin said “I don’t know” before adding “I gotta go” and walking off.

You can view the video belowwhich was taken by FOX Sports reporter Lindsey Thiry. The question, which names a specific player, has been muted to comply with USC’s practice policy.

Most media members have already come down hard on Kiffin on social media for being immature about the whole thing. But, until I’m informed otherwise, I’m just going to assume Kiffin had some ill-advised leftovers this morning in a box marked “El Nacho Grande.”

Because when you gotta go…

    What a dick!

    Could have just said “I’m not going to comment on that” and moved onto the next question.

    Instead he storms away like a pussy.

  3. rsmeans says: Sep 19, 2012 3:21 PM

    Kiffin is not only a very bad coach on the field but is one without any class. His public criticism of Barkley, his playing a convicted felon, his recruiting violations, and now his refusal to talk about injuries which most coaches do without questions needs remedy by Haden or Haden himself should be admonished by someone responsible.

    JACKASS!!!!

  5. papabush88 says: Sep 19, 2012 3:32 PM

    I love it!

    Kiffin haters: He has expressed numerous times that he doesn’t want questions regarding injuries. Reporters don’t seem to get that. If they don’t respect that, then he’s not going to waste his time or theirs.

    Fight On!

    Several years ago, I was down on Al Davis for firing this moron;
    Al, I apologize as it was before I realized what Kiffin was (see
    above word that starts with m…….)

    I love kiffin. Makes it all the easier to hate usc. Here’s to a sub .500 usc season!

  9. bigjdve says: Sep 19, 2012 3:40 PM

    I have never liked Lane Kiffen. However, why is it automatically assumed he is the bad guy here?

    Anytime he tries to tell someone No Comment, they either turn it on him or keep asking.

    I for one would prefer that he walks out instead of saying something that has stick his foot in his mouth, well any more in his mouth than it already is.

  10. papabush88 says: Sep 19, 2012 3:44 PM

    @roundup5

    Al Davis wanted Jamarcus Russell. Kiffin didn’t. Go ahead, side with Al. Dumb and deceased

  11. jasong812 says: Sep 19, 2012 3:44 PM

    Not a USC fan but I do love this! He has made it clear he is not talking about injuries. You ask the question and you get no more answers. Way to stand your ground Lane!

  12. mogogo1 says: Sep 19, 2012 3:45 PM

    This guy is a time bomb. He can’t contain himself when things are going perfectly, but when things go poorly he completely loses his mind.

    And as for the comment above about how he’s repeatedly told the press he doesn’t want to answer injury questions… Well, he doesn’t employ the press, so he’d better get used to hearing them! That’s the equivalent of the President saying he doesn’t like all those political questions. What’s next? Deciding he won’t answer any questions about losses?

  13. jasong812 says: Sep 19, 2012 3:48 PM

    They better get used to him walking away then. I think it is great he is standing up to the sleezy press. Comparing a football coach to the President?! A little different I think.

  14. papabush88 says: Sep 19, 2012 3:48 PM

    @bigjdve

    Agree with you.

    To answer your question, people don’t even realize anymore why they hate Kiffin. They remember when he was a jerk flying off the cuff 3 years ago. Now, deep down, they really hate him because they thought he would crumble, but instead he took a team with no bowl aspirations, 10 fewer players than every other team, won 10 games last year, and snapped the longest home-game win streak in the world. And now, he seems to have revived a program and put it back on the national stage….and that pisses people off.

  15. mauldawg says: Sep 19, 2012 3:51 PM

    Kiffin is a cry baby!Dont ask me quetions tha are to hard for me to answer.Just another reason to belive he is a punk.If I dont get my way then I will walk away.Not one bone in his body beongs to man.I have never seen such a POS. Hope he never leaves the state of Cal.They to belong together. Needs to change his name to CryBaby Kiffen. I hope he doesnt rad this,he might throw a temper fit.

  16. papabush88 says: Sep 19, 2012 3:52 PM

    @mogogo1

    A time bomb? Saban exploded on reporters when they asked him about the Western Kentucky game. Kiffin has repeatedly said he will not answer questions about injuries. The press only seems to be concerned about that. If Kiffin wanted to, he could answer questions and create sympathy for USC about how they could beat anyone with a healthy squad. Saban blew up on reporters trying to convince everyone that Alabama was scared of Western Kentucky. He insulted people’s intelligence.

    Hey papabush welcome! Where’ve you been hiding ?

    @mauldawg

    You sound pretty jealous of both California and Kiffin. Those are your issues. Best you keep them to yourself or seek counseling.

    As for the Crybaby comment, it doesn’t make sense. He never complained once in the press conference. He walked away. That’s what adults do. They don’t argue or cry or complain. The reporters knew the rules. Wolf broke them last week, and Kiffin banned him from practice. Everyone went “Muslim embassy protest” on him. They press did it again this week, and Kiffin walks away. Everyone seems to be reacting similarly again. Just admit that there’s nothing that Kiffin can do that will make you happy. He’s said “no comment” numerous times before but the press simply doesn’t get it.

    I have made my feelings on kiffen clear, I don’t care for him. But, this is his team, and in college coaches run them as they please. I have plenty of reasons why I dislike him, this ain’t one though.

    Kiffen will be pumping gas on Sundays soon for Alshon Jeffrey Oil Company!!!

  24. therealgts says: Sep 19, 2012 4:49 PM

    I love this. Guaranteed the reporter who asked knew Kiffin would react and threw it out there like an a hole. As far as public bashing of Barkley? Give me a break. Those two have a great relationship and Barkley is a four year starter. You think he can’t handle that? Kiffin didnt even say anything that bad. #goblue

  25. vincentbojackson says: Sep 19, 2012 6:03 PM

    Should have asked him how he managed to take the most talented roster in college football and turn them into such an average looking team.

    You have to be a pretty bad coach to pull that off.

  26. Deb says: Sep 19, 2012 6:57 PM

    I have mixed feelings on this. Yes, I think it was immature to just walk off the stage. As someone else posted, he could have said “No comment,” and moved on to the next question. But it’s always rankled me that the NFL requires coaches to provide details of player injuries to the public. Why would any coach in his right mind want opponents to know the details of his players’ injuries? The only possible reason for that is to help out the oddsmakers. And the NFL shouldn’t be in the business of helping oddsmakers.

    Like normtide, I’m not wild about Kiffin. But since the guy isn’t required to tell his opponents exactly who’s going to be on the field and what shape they’ll be in … why should he?

  27. oldforester says: Sep 19, 2012 7:04 PM

    It is what it is – why do people continue to look for an alternate answer when reality is facing them?

    Petrino was Petrino in Atlanta and in Arkansas.
    Sandusky was Sandusky.

    Lane Kiffin is Lane Kiffin. Going to USC does not make him different. He is the same jerk that left Tennessee and he will continue to be a jerk. Fortunately for him USC has a culture of self-aggrandising. Proud little princes and princesses. He fits right in!!!

    fight on my xxx

  28. polegojim says: Sep 19, 2012 8:01 PM

    Oh papabush… you been hiding out, just admit it.

    I have NO issue with not answering a question, but to walk out… childish… downright unmanly.

    He was deathly afraid of more pointed questions.

    Whaaaaaaa…

    Wonder if he and Jay Cutler are related???

  29. blasterpastor says: Sep 19, 2012 8:48 PM

    My favorite sign in the student section at the Vols game this last weekend was “We still hate you Lane Kiffin!” It just about said it all!

  30. jonbranda says: Sep 19, 2012 8:50 PM

    I don’t think anyone other then Kiffin thought he was hired for the long term, he was a probation patsy to get them past the sanctions. I think now he see the writing on the wall, its over. Just a matter of a couple 8-4 seasons or worse. Tempers do seem to flare when your golden egg is rolling away.

  33. tyniewow says: Sep 19, 2012 9:26 PM

    Newsflash: Kiffin is a douche bag.

  34. rsmeans says: Sep 19, 2012 10:06 PM

    Yes Saban gets angry when reporters say Alabama is number one or Western Kentucky is not a threat but he always gives voluntary an accurate injury report and does not play silly games with the opposition.

    That kind of injury report reporting is pretty standard except for the Kiffin like coach John L. Smith of Arkansas who talks about how great his team is and then performs poorly. He like Kiffin lays public blame on his players for the loss Kiffin voted his own team number one at the beginning of the year and denied it. When the coaches poll administrators reprimanded him he resigned from the poll. Maybe best for USC if he and his poor lost father resign from USC.

  35. rcali says: Sep 19, 2012 10:31 PM

    The more I learn about Kiffin the more I actually believe Crazy Al Davis had it right.

  36. gfj7000 says: Sep 19, 2012 10:42 PM

    Kiffin has a problem with dealing with the public and the press for failures. Now he has a problem dealing with injuries, ugh! How many other coaches in the country don’t divulge their injury information? You could probably count them on one hand. Kiffin is just a youngster (youngest head coach in the country) – needs a lot of growing up to do – maybe he should eat more WHEATIES – Breakfast of Champions, instead of spending time on his boat in Newport Beach. I agree with Mauldawg’s comment – Kiffin’s just a crybaby / can’t hide from the press, so instead of taking some of the blame for last Saturday’s loss – he blames crybaby Barkley and not the WHOLE OFFENSE which fell apart. He has a difficult time taking ‘hits’ from the press as he’s a proud youngster.

  37. clemsonstillsucks says: Sep 19, 2012 10:45 PM

    @ Floridacock

    LOL. Kiffen’s “Fifteen Minutes of Fame” clock reads 5 ’til.

    It will be interesting to see where he lands once he runs out of excuses in Southern Cal. Maybe coaching TO in the Afghanistan Indoor Lingerie Football League?

    Al Davis wanted Jamarcus Russell. Kiffin didn’t. Go ahead, side with Al. Dumb and deceased

    Jamarcus Russell was #1 on Kipers big board, they needed a QB, he missed, so does almost every top 10 pick , the alternative was Brady Quinn , & hes no Joe-Mo either buddy,

    Davis has strong ties with USC ,

    and if Kiffin is “EVER” successful , he can thank Al for putting him on the map,

    regardless of whether it works out, creative minds have differences,

    Shanahan , Gruden, Kiffin ,

    all got first gigs with Al.

    back in 88 when i was pushin weight, you were a ballerina, i got your pictures i seen ya …. we dont believe you , YOU NEED MORE PEOPLE.

    ha.

  40. Deb says: Sep 20, 2012 12:47 AM

    @papabush88 …

    USC is a historically great program, and it’s good you’re defending your team. It’s in my Steeler-fan DNA to hate Al Davis, and yeah, he had a lot of issues. But “dumb and deceased”? Yikes! The man forgot more football than most will ever know. Please … a little respect for a pioneer of the game.

    ====================================
    That’s interesting. You seemed to have plenty of time to post last week prior to USC’s loss to Stanford. You were conspicuously absent on the threads following USC’s loss.

  42. tlmoon2112 says: Sep 20, 2012 9:19 AM

    I think comparing Kiffin and Saban is not really a good idea, the 2 issues are not similar at all. First of all Kiffin is nothing more then a petulant little child. He gets angry because he can’t handle the pressure of the moment and, in his mind, his problems are always caused by someone else (in this case, the media asking questions he doesnt like). Saban, on the other hand, knows that it’s to his ADVANTAGE to force the media to prop up his opponents (if he can force them to do that somehow) because the BCS will reflect it in the strength of schedule column. Lets face it, we all know he doesnt really “respect” Western Kentucky (or anyone else for that matter) but he needs to play it out like he does and have the media play it out like he does because it helps him in the BCS. For him its more a winning strategy then anything else. They’re both very much alike in their shortness of temper but that’s really about it.

  43. kozbee says: Sep 20, 2012 10:56 AM

    Well first things come first;welcome back papabush and hope you enjoyed the game Saturday.More then anything as any coach would do is talk about injuries,kind of looked playing the bit as if he was down in Knoxville Tenn.All Lane had to do was throw a quick answer out there and move to another reporter but that one must of hurt.Coaches get all riled up at a simple question as that one was and run off one can only think he loves to win but can`t take a loss.Lane you`ll get over it just talk to your daddy and he might explain on how to be a man because as of that meeting you acted like a child.Better call Pete back imo he`ll be there at the NC before Lane is.

  44. blimpmaster says: Sep 20, 2012 1:02 PM

    They muted the name of the player to comply with USC’s practice policy? What the heck is that all about? Kiffin is a spoiled rotten baby who really needs to have his ass whooped. He cannot coach, hence he cannot win, even when he cheats.

    Wow, losing when you cheat. How much worse can it get.

  45. normtide says: Sep 20, 2012 1:19 PM

    Deb!,
    The NFL will not admit it, but their injury policy is in place for vegas. But, as you stated, college has no injury report policy. However, the bama v ark game was a good example: while J L Smith was spending time formalating a ruse, Saban and his staff was preparing an actual gameplan. Imo, Kiffen should worry more about gameplans then smiting the media, but hey, I don’t make millions to coach. The funny thing about Smith’s ploy, Ark runs the same offense, regardless if Wilson plays or not. So, the ruse was an entire waste of precious.

  46. Deb says: Sep 20, 2012 4:36 PM

    @normtide …

    Of course the NFL’s injury policy is in place to serve Vegas–that’s the only logical reason for it. There’s certainly no competitive advantage in letting your opponent know who’s injured, where they’re injured, and how badly they’re injured in advance of the game. But you’ll notice that when I tried to say that, people got their panties all twisted. But hey … I’m used to people getting their panties twisted when I comment here LOL That’s part of the fun ;)

  47. papabush88 says: Sep 20, 2012 4:37 PM

    @frank booth (Sandusky)

    Little scary that you’re keeping track of where I am and what I am doing. What articles about USC were out recently? These lane Kiffin ones are so pathetic. Kiffin is on record repeating himself about his rules and not commenting on injured players. Yet, this continues to fall on deaf ears. People need to relax about Kiffin. Doesn’t look good for the haters. Just comes off as jealous. You got Saban going crazy blowing smoke up our ass about western Kentucky and no one says anything. As the several Kiffin haters above said “he did nothing wrong. It’s his football team and his rules.”

  48. papabush88 says: Sep 20, 2012 4:51 PM

    @kozbee

    Never known people, other than ucla fans, to be so happy about a USC loss. I don’t have a second of my time for other teams…just my own. USC must be such a feared program that people, with no stake in the program/ fans not even in same conference, celebrate when the Trojans lose. Did anyone see the stanford fans rush the field? Stanford was ranked in top 25. They were playing at home. And they acted like they were Appalachian State knocking off Michigan!!! Like when 9/11 happened and you saw clips of people from all over the Middle East dancing in the street. Guess that means USC is a superpower of college football. But even superpowers aren’t invincible as noted from Obama’s last four abysmal years. USC’s arrogance will continue as will everyone else’s jealousy. You can stop praying to Allah (or whatever football god you believe in)…we’re not going anywhere.

  49. frank booth says: Sep 20, 2012 5:26 PM

    papabush88

    As I said, you were CONSPICUOUSLY absent on USC threads after the loss (after bloviating about how great USC was) There were several threads, one relating directly to the game and a couple regarding the polls.

    But you knew that already.

    You’re pretty much on every USC thread several times, and people noticed that you weren’t around when your team lost. That’s all.

    As far as Kiffin, I don’t think I said anything about him.

    As far as no one saying anything about Saban, there were plenty of comments about him on another thread relating to his presser.

    Yeah, USC has been a super power in college football. Not lately, however.

    You should get back to your 14 hour day.

  50. papabush88 says: Sep 20, 2012 5:40 PM

    @frank booth

    Never saw any USC related posts other than the one talking about the new Top 25, which mentioned USC dropped to 13. Of course, sometimes my email inbox becomes so flooded, that I repeatedly hit DELETE and might have missed one. Cuff me, officer!

    USC still has the best starting 11 on O and 11 on D. No team has a better starting roster. It’s the 75 players vs everyone else’s 85 that hurts us. USC has to blow teams up in the first half to win the game.

    And USC is still great. Here’s proof

    http://espn.go.com/blog/pac12/post/_/id/45123/usc-cal-among-top-10-producing-nfl-players

    Other than working from 7am to 10pm on Tuesday, work has since slowed. I have a mother, frank. Don’t need another one keeping an eye on me. Thanks for looking out though.

  51. foreverlsu says: Sep 20, 2012 6:02 PM

    Great? USC has ZERO BCS titles. Beat Stanford once every four years before you throw that big word out there.

  52. frank booth says: Sep 20, 2012 6:08 PM

    papabush88

    Good try, papabush. Not keeping an eye on you. I guess you don’t understand the meaning of the word “conspicuous”. Ever heard the term “conspicuous in his absence”? That’s all I was talking about. Really quite simple.

    Congrats on the best starters. Didn’t help against Stanford.

    Keep in mind that you were the one of the main people touting USC’s greatness. Don’t run back for excuses now. It’s too late for that. Starting teams have 22 players, plus special teams. I doubt that they are using the bottom 10 or 20 on that roster anyway. Stop whining. USC lost.

    The fact that USC produces the most NFL players doesn’t make them great. It just makes them the team that produces the most NFL players. Iowa (7-6 in ’11, 8-5 in ’10) and Cal are in the top ten list as well: Are they great? Miami is number 2. Does that make them great? Alabama is #8. Does that mean that the 7 teams ahead of them are better than them because they send more players to the NFL. Not likely. Way to destroy your own your point.

    Congratulations on having a mom. I think all of us have them. When you move out of the basement, she can stop keeping an eye on you and then you can keep an eye on yourself.

  53. papabush88 says: Sep 20, 2012 6:09 PM

    @foreverlsu

    The NCAA recognizes USC as the winner of 11 national championships. How many does LSU have? One thing is for sure: USC doesn’t just lay a fat egg in the national title game.

  54. papabush88 says: Sep 20, 2012 6:30 PM

    Everyone, meet frank booth. The most jealous person in the world. I know what conspicuous means. What I found weird is that you went on these other supposed articles looking for me to comment. That’s odd. There’s got to be some kind of Megan’s Law thing about that.

    USC is still great. I still think they’re the best. Not reeling on that. It’s just too bad that depth became an issue. Without injuries, we are a lock to win every game. If you really watch the USC games, you could see that we are not a second half team because of how winded guys get. Lack of depth hurts.

    It’s an early season loss. Hell, LSU lost two fricking games in 2007 (same as USC) and still made it to the BCS championship game and won. The SEC seems to get passes on their losses. Not the Pac 12 (2001 USC, 2003 USC, 2008 USC, 2004 Utah, 2008 Utah….2004 Auburn was the only SEC team, but they had an extremely weak schedule). But if you want other proof, does having the best bowl winning percentage make you the best program of all time? If you want to talk wins, that is…

    USC has the best bowl winning percentage (for teams that have played at least 15 bowl games). 11 NC, 7 Heismans, Most players drafted all time to NFL, most pro bowlers, and most players currently on NFL rosters. USC

  55. papabush88 says: Sep 20, 2012 6:57 PM

    Last point and I’m over this topic because it’s just pathetic how much time people spend hating on Kiffin and USC, when they could spend it supporting their own team. People are so worried and concerned about USC. Concern yourselves with your own program. The Trojans feed on your hate. We played with a huge chip on our shoulder last year and began dominating. Careful, because it may just happen again.

    The Point: Before the season began, Lane Kiffin specifically instilled rules about injuries. Despite all of that, the press STILL asks him questions about injuries. Lane calmly responds “no comment” but reiterates that he WILL NOT DISCUSS INJURIES. His rule. His team. Your tears. Clown reporter, Scott Wolf, violates the rule and Kiffin bans him. Haden has the ban lifted and Wolf, who still spells players’ names incorrectly gets to report on USC again. AGAIN, a reporter asks Lane about an injury. As to avoid a Saban-like explosion moment, Kiffin walks off. Media is persistent on wasting his time. There were several articles on ESPN and here talking about Saban’s meltdown. I never once commented or said a bad thing about it. Again, I only concern myself with my team. Kiffin bans a reporter and all hell breaks loose. It’s completely ridiculous. Saban is allowed to say whatever he wants. His football team. If he really wants to spend time persuading us that Western Kentucky has a shot against Alabama, that’s his deal. Kiffin made his rules. Media doesn’t respect the rules. Not Kiff’s fault.

    normtide and Deb both do not like Kiffin. But they are level headed enough to agree that Kiffin did nothing wrong here.

    I am so sorry that you all thought Kiffin would amount to nothing at USC. I think it’s time to get over all that. He has more wins and fewer losses in his first two seasons than Pete Carroll had. The guy broke the longest home winning streak in the nation last year and went 10-2 in the middle of some of the most egregious sanctions. Who else can do that? Penn State? I don’t think so.

  56. frank booth says: Sep 20, 2012 6:58 PM

    papabush88-

    I see it all of the time. When you get blown out of the water or someone refutes USC, you call the jealous. Just an attempt to categorize and discount.

    As far as going on other articles looking for you to comment, that’s just stupid and a weird assumption on your part. Once again, your the person who talks up USC the most, and it was strange that you weren’t on those threads. Other people noticed it as well. I went on those articles to read them. As far as you commenting or being a chickensh*t when your team loses, I just find it entertaining.

    As far as your team being winded, you have 75 players on the roster: 75. That’s plenty of people to switch in and out so that they don’t get winded. How many teams go that deep into their roster during a game? And every team has injuries. Please. USC has plenty of depth.

    Before Stanford, USC was this all powerful juggernaut this year.

    Now listen to the whining: We have injuries. Our players are winded because we only have 75 players on our roster. But Stanford is a top 25 team. The press isn’t respecting Kiffin. Wah-Wah-Wah.

    If you need to rely on USC history because your team hasn’t performed well in the recent past, that’s fine. It’s sad, but fine. Maybe they can get some trophies for sending the most players to the NFL or having the best bowl winning percentage. That would be helpful, wouldn’t it.

    And as for USC not laying an egg in the title game: At least LSU has been there twice in the last 5 years, winning once. Where has USC been?

    Oh that’s right. They have the most pro bowlers and history. Good for USC.

    Everybody just step back and take a deep breath; repeat after me “grass is green, sky is blue, grass is green, sky is blue.”

    I could see Kiffin starting a press conference going down every player on the roster.

    #2 Robert Woods, his right hand is a little tender.
    #3 Torrin Harris has a bruise on his left thigh
    #6 Cody Kessler has a blister on his left index finger.
    etc.
    etc
    etc

    He’s a prick and proud to be a prick.

    The NCAA recognizes USC as the winner of 11 national championships. How many does LSU have? One thing is for sure: USC doesn’t just lay a fat egg in the national title game.

    ————————————————–

    You’re right. They usually just choke against Oregon State or UCLA.

    Can’t say they lay an egg against Stanford, since Stanford owns USC. Four in a row.

    Too bad your team isn’t the best in their own state, much less their own conference, much less college football.

    I’m glad you enjoy Kiffen. A loser in the NFL, barely average in the SEC. Hasn’t accomplished anything at SC other than falling short of expectations. Just like he has everywhere else. Daddy can only do so much.

    Using injuries as an excuse is the lament of a loser.

    USC has done nothing in over five years. Florida and LSU each won as many national titles in the last decade. USC has become Notre Dame. A once powerful football team who is overrated every year. With frontrunning fans who make excuses and talk about the past, because that’s all they have.

    Enjoy another year of irrelevancy. At least Matt Barkley can say he got a Holiday Bowl ring out of his senior year.

    Since he isn’t getting anything else.

    @waynefontes

    How is USC overrated every year like ND? We were picked to lose 5 games last year (ASU, Cal, Stanford, ND, and Oregon). Instead, we only lost two. Had we been bowl eligible, we would’ve won the South and played Oregon again…at team that never led the entire game when we beat them the first time. Injuries happen to every team, but an injury is a bigger deal to a team with 75 (usc) players on scholarship vs 85 (everyone else)
