08:24 AM ET 11.09 | In terms of family dynamic, it doesn't get much more complicated than Lane Kiffin's. [The] wrath for the preseason No. 1 Trojans' collapse has found an inviting, and perhaps accurate, target: his 72-year-old defensive coordinator Monte Kiffin. After Oregon ran roughshod over the Trojans on national television Saturday for 62 points and 730 yards, school records for futility that came on the heels of a late defensive collapse in a defeat at Arizona, the younger Kiffin is being besieged by calls to fire his father. It's one thing for people to suggest you take away the keys to your dad's car. It's another to demand that you take away the ones to his office. The younger Kiffin says he will evaluate his father just as he does any other coach.

Monte needs to resign. It will temporarily take the pressure off Lame Kitten. But, Pat Hayden needs to make the big move and do a clean sweep. Sandy Undies is the only person who believes Kiffin is a good HC.

A lot of college football guys were asking, "Do they expect us to believe Kiffin didn't know about the under-inflation thing?"

Agree that the father should take the high road and resign to take the pressure off his son.
Not sure Haden will want to let Kiffin go until the recruiting sanctions play out and he has a full strength team to play with.
Kiffin's immaturity doesn't mean he can't coach; he has shown flashes of both growing up and good coaching.

Would be interestinf if Monte then signed on with a PAC 12 rival, say UCLA, and beat USC!

Who will strap Lane in his car seat for the ride to the office if Monte is gone?
