USC coach Lane Kiffin and his star receiver Marqise Lee appear to have a different version of the facts when it comes to whether the Trojans did or did not hold a ‘players-only’ meeting on Sunday.
Following this past Saturday’s 10-7 loss to Washington State at the Coliseum, Lee told reporters that there would be a players’ meeting the next day.
On Sunday, Kiffin said a meeting had not been held and reiterated it to the media again after practice on Tuesday.
But Lee, one of USC’s team captains, said Tuesday that Kiffin was wrong, as these tweets attest:
Kiffin said there was no players-only meeting on Sunday. Marqise Lee just told us there was, "PLAYERS ONLY" Lee joked as he broke the news.—

USC held a players-only meeting Sunday, something Kiffin said he didn’t think had happened.—

Who is to be believed?
Based on the track record of the parties involved, I’m going with Lee.
