I think losing Ed overshadows the hiring of Steve. [/quote]
To the emotional fans, yes. But give people a couple days to process everything and they'll come to their senses. I mean, do people really think Orgeron would be a better head coach than Sarkisian? I was initially "meh" about th...

At first he did, but now he's saying he wants another shot at being a head coach. I can't blame the guy one bit. If SC goes with someone else, I don't see Orgeron sticking around. ...

Why is everyone on this board so down on Orgeron?
How many proven coaches are out there? Saban, Meyer,... That's it. I know A&M fans will tell you USC wants Sumlin just so they can say Sumlin isn't leaving. But really outside of Saban and Meyer, they're all a crap shoot.
Ed loves USC. USC love...

No way. Yes, Kiffin inherited some great players, but Carroll had effectively stopped recruiting his last couple of years at SC. We only had like 70 something guys on scholarship when Carroll left, not to mention all the defectors who left once the NCAA handed down the harshest penalties since SMU.

Kiffin will choose Wittek.
By all accounts (and granted I haven't seen either play this fall) Kessler has outplayed Wittek in just about every practice and scrimmage, but Kiffin hasn't selected a QB yet. He's waiting for Wittek to outperform Kessler just once, so he can name Wittek the starter. K...
