08:28 AM ET 09.13 | For an injured kicker, Andre Heidari finds himself in the middle of a significant controversy, thanks in part to Southern California football coach Lane Kiffin avoiding the addressing of injuries this season. USC drilled that message home recently by suspending Los Angeles Daily News reporter Scott Wolf from two weeks of practices and taking away his credential for the Trojans' home game on Sept. 22. The Los Angeles Times reported that Wolf was suspended for reporting an injury on [Heidari], who underwent surgery last week to repair a torn meniscus in a knee. Wolf's story even noted that Kiffin does not discuss injuries. ... WEDNESDAY NIGHT UPDATE: Wolf tweeted at 9:42 p.m. ET that his ban was lifted.

At least he didn't rape anyone and not even go to prison and then the young lady killed herself? Now what school was that? Oh yeah Notre Dame. That's a lot better than what USC did.

Notre Dame pays Blood money of $78,000 for death of Student due to their negligence (Admittedly I put a tabloid spin on the headline).

Would you expect anything less of Lane Kiffin? What does USC stand for? ( University of Spoiled Children ) or ( University of Sociopathic Criminals ) ?

I think giving him a butter knife and telling him to go carve the Jell-o would be a wise adjustment to make.
