"I gotta go."
Lane Kiffin came out to meet the media after Wednesday's practice, was really crisp in both the cliché game and the pablum game, and promptly left reporters hanging
after a single question. He just remembered he has to see a guy about a thing.
If you're wondering about the audio gap, that's where Fox cut the question that set Kiffin off, in accordance with USC's paranoid new media policy
restricting reporters who attend practices from relaying anything concerning "strategy or injuries that are observed during the course of watching that practice or result from that practice" under threat of banishment. A few hours after the fact, we already know the subject of the question: Center Khaled Holmes' return to the top of the depth chart after missing the Stanford game with an injury. It might take a little while longer before anybody writes anything else about Kiffin's growing maturity
