Second verse, same as the first: another blue-chip Florida prospect has elected to follow Lane Kiffin to the West Coast.

This time it's top athlete Nelson Agholor, who chose to sign with USC over Florida, Florida State and Notre Dame. A consensus five-star prospect (including at Maxpreps) from Berkeley Prep in Tampa, the 6'2", 185-pound Agholor is ranked No. 13 overall in the Maxpreps top 100 and the No. 1 athlete in the class.

Though Agholor could also have a professional future in the defensive backfield, he is expected to play wide receiver for the Trojans.

"I love to opportunity to play alongside Marqise Lee and Robert Woods," he said in his televised announcement. "I really dealt with some great people over there."

From Tom Lemming's evaluation of Agholor for Maxpreps:
Before I got to Tampa everyone was talking about Mr. Agholor. Like Shaq Roland, he has what it takes to become an outstanding WR or DB at the next level and also a punt and kickoff return specialist. He makes everything look easy and is a natural athlete ... On defense shows terrific instincts, quick reactions, reads quarterbacks well, shows superior quickness, can turn his hips, and has the height, leaping ability, and smooth backpedal to dominate receivers. On the other side of the ball he's a sure handed receiver with all the way kind of speed, and he uses his balance, instincts, and agility that he uses on the defensive side of the ball.
The Trojans' 2012 class currently ranks 12th in the CBS Sports National Signing Day Top 25 but should be due for a move up after the additions of Agholor, Leonard Williams, and Devian Shelton

If I had a son  being recruited, I'd hate to see him playing for a corrupt, immoral person like Kiffin.  Maybe they can finally beat Stanford if they hire enough guns to beat honest student athletes.

p.s. Please see if you can teach the band a second tune.

Say what you want about Lane Kiffin, but the man is a recruiting assault weapon.

The USC formula: cheat, cheat cheat.  When caught, deny everything and continue cheating.  When given "punishment," become indignant in public while continuing to cheat behind the scenes.  Then, continue cheating as if nothing ever happened and pretend you are doing nothing wrong. 

Please T-Minor do expound. It's easy to write whatever the hell you want isn't it, so please cite all this continual cheating.

Just another jealous low life who blames everyone else for her problems.

In a couple of years, Kiffin will have USC in the BCS title game---book it.

Teres Minor…..I remember my first beer……fogged my brain too.  USC formula: cheat, cheat, cheat?  First, I hate USC but I do not make up lies about them. Yes, their running back took money for his parents and one two-bit coach tried to hide the fact. Wrong? Yes!  But they paid a big price.  Cam at Auburn?  Worse offense in my mind. Penalty? Nothing!  And how do you feel about the BCS and how it manipulates the system and its millions and millions of dollars to assure no western team has a chance to play for their title? Your okay with that?  From the east are we? Talk about cheaters????  Start with the east coast bias and how it controls the BCS and then we can talk about minor infractions. I think your teres minor has separated from your humerus.

USC has the right formula

The USC formula: cheat, cheat cheat.  When caught, deny everything and continue cheating.  When given "punishment," become indignant in public while continuing to cheat behind the scenes.  Then, continue cheating as if nothing ever happened and pretend you are doing nothing wrong.  

The NCAA doesn't the cojones to give programs like USC what they really deserve, anyway, so why should they bother obeying any of the rules?  And really, I fully understand why they do this.  You can question their ethics all you want, and rightfully so, but you can't question their results.  USC is about to skate out from under another "probation" with no consequences other than a missed bowl game or two.  

Thanks a lot, NCAA.

And in the end they will still be underachieving and mediocre.  Enjoy the ranked recruiting classes of big head, me- first clowns, and simply rank seasons.  Remember, your coach is still Lame Kitten.

I'm kinda surprised at your comments and stance G-73 given some of your posts I have read that are Christian in nature. I seriously always thought...now there's a guy whose walk I wish I could emulate more. Seriously, because I know I can be a real dirtbag who gets caught up in rolling in the mud with some of these morons....not proud of it. I would've suspected that you'd weigh the facts and have given LK the benefit of the doubt; however, I am apparently wrong.

LK did nothing wrong leaving tenn given he told those hiring him up front that he would only leave for the SC job; this is documented. He's a very good coach and those who dislike the guy have a me problem, I hope you're not one of those making an uninformed judgment.

WVAISAWEFUL
It seems to me that you are just still upset that Kiffen bolted from a temp job to a real job at USC. The Vols have been irrelevant since Tee Martin. when you find yourself back at the top of anything then come holler at us. Meanwhile we will be busy WINNING........  He slithered out of Vol territory because he saw no future and was offered his dream job. Your mad about it and basically your saying that you wouldnt leave your job of flipping burgers 7 days a week to go and manage a business for more money, prestige, and a better chance at success. trust me you and the rest of you Vol fans are the only one thinking what your thinking. Talk some trash about Saban or Petrino about being snakes the way they left the NFL teams they were coaching. Oh wait you cant beat them on the field so it wouldnt matter. Looking forward to USC stomping a mudhole in your Vols.
