I mean, look at this -- I've seen Cub Scout banquets held in nicer rooms. I'd totally no-show this event too:
Acceptinga bowl bid comes w/ certain obligations. From the photo opps at Disney World or Bush Gardens, the visits to the local children's hospitals, the banquets, meet & greets, interviews with local media, etc.. its all part of the gig. Lane Kiffen and USC now showing up is a reflection back on himself and how he prepares his teams. Is it any wonder why his teams lack discipline? It takes something special to take all of that talent and coach them to 6 losses.
