Sounds like Junior and his old boss aren’t exactly letting bygones be bygones:
… Kiffin was asked Thursday about Notre Dame wide receiver Michael Floyd, who is the Irish’s leading receiver with 62 catches and only three touchdown passes away from breaking the school’s career record.
“The last time I was here (as an assistant coach), he said USC was his dream school,” Kiffin said. “He’s a classic big, dominant receiver.”
So why didn’t Floyd come to USC?
“I wasn’t here,” Kiffin said.
The fact Kiffin even mentioned Floyd wanted to come to USC made up for an incident earlier in the year, when Carroll was recorded having a conversation with Chicago Bears wide receiver Devin Hester during warm-ups. Hester asked Carroll why USC failed to recruit him?
“Ask Lane Kiffin,” Carroll replied.
Carroll also told Hester that Kiffin recruited the area (Florida) where Hester went to high school…
Ol’ Pete must be mistaken. Nothing is ever truly the Laner’s fault… unless there’s a benefit to it.
