After the USC Trojans lost to Washington State at home on Saturday 10-7, we have had some interesting things going down in Southern Cal. We had that nice ‘Fire Kiffin’ chant, the ‘fire Lane Kiffin’ joke in the parking lot, and even fans planning to wear bags on their heads in protest. Now star WR Marqise Lee is calling players only meetings:
“We’re not supposed to come in [Sunday] but we’ll come in and talk about it as a team and go over the things we can improve on as a team without the coaches there,” Lee told reporters.
Lee clearly looked frustrated on Saturday only gaining 27 yards on 7 catches. The real question here is, was this a sign of player mutiny or player accountability? We know the fans want Lane gone but the players haven’t seemed to turn on him. Yet.
