08:05 AM ET 01.09 | When there turned out to be a little less room for him, prep defensive lineman Kylie Fitts changed his mind. [Fitts] is de-committing from USC after learning he wouldn't be able to enter school early, Wildcats coach Kurt Bruich said. USC told Fitts, a 6-foot-4, 265-pounder who graduated at the semester, on Monday they no longer had a spot for him to enroll early and wanted him to wait until June to enter school, Bruich said. "Recruiting man, it's crazy," Bruich said. "He's wanted to go to USC for as long as he can remember and now he feels betrayed. ... I think they thought because of that loyalty he'd still want to go there. He said to me 'What am I supposed to do for the next five months?' It seems shady. I think it seems shady to everyone."

Al Davis (RIP) warned us all. No one seemed to listen.

Prolly because no one had used an overhead projector since 1996 and most of us were confused as to what he was doing with one.

I remember hearing about the Davis presser for firing Kiffen. I remember it being reported that it was the weirdest presser ever.

No one. Because we had about 15-20 years of him being wrong. Which is so weird, because when he was younger, he seemed to make a lot of right moves.

I won the DGAF PICK'EM 1.

I the MSUs has a spot for him also. He can always take the drive down Hwy 82 to visit Tuscaloosa.

It's not shady, it's the numbers game because of restrictions. His scholly offer didn't get pulled. Hopefully when he calms down, he realizes how much SC still wants him and he stays.

Kiffin is a weasel, which makes him perfect to be in the most hypocritical organization in the United States, the NCAA.

Five months off when you have nothing to do but work out. That is a recipe for trouble for a 18 yr old.

Is that what happened with D. Walker?
