USC coach Lane Kiffin described it as continued “bad karma” in a week replete with controversy after a student manager was fired for deflating game balls during the first half of last Saturday’s defensive debacle against Oregon. Only 45 minutes before kickoff, sophomore wide receiver Marqise Lee entered Kiffin’s office with a swollen face after […]
