Southern Cal: Student Manager Gone Wild!
Southern Cal has announced the firing of a student manager for intentionally deflating game balls in the Trojans 62-52 loss to Oregon last Saturday. You don't suppose Lane Kiffin knew anything about this beforehand do you? Oh well...Underinflated footballs are supposed to be easier to throw and catch, but offensive performance doesn't appear to have been affected in a game that produced 114 total points. Officials routinely check the game balls before kickoff and again at halftime, but the manager admitted he deflated the balls after they had been checked. Maybe the next manger should try over-inflation if he wants to help the Trojans. Just sayin..
