Alrighty then. Our pal Kiffikins continues his rousing start in Trojan land. Practice is nary 3 weeks old and already we have trouble in paradise.
Yesterday, we find out that the Trojan's have suspended star freshman running back Dillon Baxter for USC's first game, against Hawaii.
Baxter, according to reports not coming from Kiffin, was the center of an incident at the Athletic Dorms the night before.

We think the funniest part of this story, and it has humorous elements, is the fine, upstanding Lane Kiffin, weakly trying to deflect the questions of the LA Media.
This of course comes on top of last week, where he finally admitted that Cornerback TJ Bryant had to get surgery to repair a cheekbone that was broken in a fight the week before camp started.
Previous to that, it was the hiring of Kennedy Pola to be the Offensive Coordinator right under the nose of the Tennessee Titans, who had just hired Pola. Oh...and they didn't ask for permission to talk to him either.
And lest we forget that Kiffikins was questioned by the NCAA about multiple potential issues with his year or so in Knoxville, at the University of Tennessee.
We can't wait to see what's next.
