Is Lane Kiffin ever in the news for anything positive?
The Coaches Poll was released a few weeks back, and Kiffin, a new participant, was asked on Tuesday who he voted for at No. 1.
"I would not vote USC No. 1, I can tell you that much."
If Lane figured he wouldn't be found out, he must have forgotten one little thing. According to USA Today Sports, which released Kiffin's official vote last night:
"Each coach's vote normally is kept confidential until the final vote of the regular season under an agreement between USA TODAY Sports and the American Football Coaches Association. However, when a voter volunteers false or misleading information about his vote in public, then USA TODAY Sports, in its oversight role as administrator of the poll, will set the record straight to protect the poll's integrity."
As you can guess, Kiffin did vote USC at No. 1.
Perhaps we just tell the truth next time.
