Not making friends
USC coach Lane Kiffin says that quarterback Matt Barkley will not be able to play Monday Night in the Sun Bowl. His shoulder injury has not healed.
Lane also had to let the good folks in El Paso, Texas know that a tweet from a Trojan was bad.
Seems freshman defensive end Leonard Williams sent out this blast. Quote: “Out here in El Paso. (Bleeping) city. But glad I can enjoy this moment with the USC family.”
A couple of weeks ago USC linebacker Tony Burnett tweeted, “I’ve been to El Paso. No one wants to be there on New Year’s Eve.”
The Trojans also angered the locals when they were an hour late for a dinner that was supposed to be for both teams. Georgia Tech had already left.
Local citizens have Twitter capability of their own. And there are several suggestions that USC can plant a big kiss on the south end of a north-bound mule.
