Second verse, same as the first: another blue-chip Florida prospect has elected to follow Lane Kiffin to the West Coast.

This time it's top athlete Nelson Agholor, who chose to sign with USC over Florida, Florida State and Notre Dame. A consensus five-star prospect (including at Maxpreps) from Berkeley Prep in Tampa, the 6'2", 185-pound Agholor is ranked No. 13 overall in the Maxpreps top 100 and the No. 1 athlete in the class.

Though Agholor could also have a professional future in the defensive backfield, he is expected to play wide receiver for the Trojans.

"I love to opportunity to play alongside Marqise Lee and Robert Woods," he said in his televised announcement. "I really dealt with some great people over there."

From Tom Lemming's evaluation of Agholor for Maxpreps:
Before I got to Tampa everyone was talking about Mr. Agholor. Like Shaq Roland, he has what it takes to become an outstanding WR or DB at the next level and also a punt and kickoff return specialist. He makes everything look easy and is a natural athlete ... On defense shows terrific instincts, quick reactions, reads quarterbacks well, shows superior quickness, can turn his hips, and has the height, leaping ability, and smooth backpedal to dominate receivers. On the other side of the ball he's a sure handed receiver with all the way kind of speed, and he uses his balance, instincts, and agility that he uses on the defensive side of the ball.
The Trojans' 2012 class currently ranks 12th in the CBS Sports National Signing Day Top 25 but should be due for a move up after the additions of Agholor, Leonard Williams, and Devian Shelton

G-73
I think its funny you keep mentioning jailbirds when your arrest rate at Florida is higher ranked than your recruiting class or football ranking. In fact you could be BCS champs if those were calculated into the formula. You hate someone and dont really have a legitimate reason you can explain as to why. You say that we might get to match up in a title game. bad news for you you arent making a title game for quite some time. Again i just want to know along with everyone else what it is that Kiffen did to make you go from Gator to Hator so bad. What did he lie about? yeah he talked some trash but is it any different than Petrino talking about what they were gonna do to their rivals? was it any different or lower than when he left an email and put it on his Falcon player's lockers explaining that he was leaving them to go coach in the middle of the season? You say that the titles USC won were tainted? really? dont be ignorant. You know that what is done on the field is how you earn championships. Nothing USC was put on probation for made a difference on the field and even an ignorant Hater fan like you know it. I wish you would come to USC and play us. Or lets meet in the middle at a nuetral field. SC will play wherever they need to which we have done. At VT, Arkansas, Minnesota. Never seen the Gators leave the state to play out of conference. sounds like we already grew some and have extra to give you since you dont have any. Its too bad that the years we did win championships you werent good enough to play in those games against us. Thats not our fault. As for the last time we played are you really talking about back in 1982? that is as irrelevant as you thinking you will be in a title game soon. Please your going to need to de throne Alabama, and LSU and S Carolina and Ark as the cream of the crop in the SEC first. Then come talk.

I can understand some of the old rhetoric regarding Kiffin. It looks to me that the real haters are really upset because despite their predictions of Kiffin crashing and burning, he has done better than a good job so far. That I feel is the motivation.

Unless your a USC hater, which I enjoy, and spewed it as much during the Carroll era.

That fact is the Trojans are doing better than expected, as is Kiffin and crew. The Trojans aren't folding up and going away, they are actually a threat this season. A little fear creeping in?

A healthy USC program is good for college football. Kiffin has been given a tough task with demanding alum and fans. He is doing well.

deal with it. It might get a lot worse for you by the end of next sason.......

As for the comments by someone about my spirituality and the misbehavior of Kiffen, how does that have anything to do with the price of tea in China?   He never called me out, and I have nothing to forgive him for.  I only know he was an arrogant, lying, cheating punk, based on his own actions and words. 

Nothing, but if you're going to walk the talk that you so hypocritically spew on threads regarding Christianity, then you probably should not slander a man. I keep asking you blowhards what it is that LK did that bent your richard's out of shape, and no one will answer. Oh thats right, "trash talk"...next time I run into LK I'll tell him that some p-u-s-s-y in florida wants an apology for his "trash talking" because his fewings are hurt (see para. 3).

If you are the face of Christianity, no wonder people run and hide because you are clearly a hypocrite and a fraud. Talk is cheap 73 and based on the sheisse you write I have one question...what would Jesus do. You're a frikn phony not to mention incredibly immature; oregano, kitten...you're how old?

 I agree, you need to grow a pair and btw a house 200 miles from USC didn't help SC hand ou their ass, but keep trying. You know Jesus doesn't like  the hate and lies you're spewing hypocrite, you better clean up your act because God sees what you do while gazing at your timmy tebo poster when you're all alone...sick bass-turd. I'm tell'n ya, you may not make the final cut...just say'n.

Hey one last quick question...now that liar urb is gone, have you found that your player arrests have dropped off?

Those are some pretty tough words coming from a Florida fan, considering that Florida is too chicken s**t to play USC.  Florida is too chicken s**t to play any decent non-con team away from Florida.  Kiffin and USC would kick Florida's tail up one end of the field and down the other.  Florida fans know this.  That is why they hide behind their "SEC is the best" B.S.  Drag your chicken s**t arses to L.A. and play USC and you phonies will not be able to sit for a month.  That is how bad your tails would be kicked.  Florida fans are losers.  At least Georgia, Alabama, LSU, and other SEC teams have enough balls to play solid non-con teams.  When Florida grows a set, come back and talk to us.  Until then, bye-bye.



The last time we played, Florida beat USC.  In fact, I hoped they would find a way to play in 2006, but USC found a way to mess up as usual in Oregano.  Now, if USC would take care of business once in a while and not be on NCAA jail watch, we might get to match up in a title game.  Until you win one against an SEC champ, you might want to stick a sock in it.  You don't know you could beat us- in fact, I would say given recent history, you might want to prove it first- once you get out of purgatory.  Kiffen is what he is.  I feel no need to overlook his stupidity, since he has never once recanted or apologized for his lying ways to anyone he offended.  How USC feels about him is irrelevant to his trash talk when he was here. 

As for the comments by someone about my spirituality and the misbehavior of Kiffen, how does that have anything to do with the price of tea in China?   He never called me out, and I have nothing to forgive him for.  I only know he was an arrogant, lying, cheating punk, based on his own actions and words. 

The recent titles that USC won are tainted, and you guys have to prove you can still win one without cheating.  Grow some yourselves.

His mouth was writing checks his behind couldn't cash.

Lane admitted to making a mistake w/ UM and apologized; however, the guy isn't as stupid as many would like to think. He's kept a clean ship and his mouth shut at SC but he admitted to stirring the pot at tenn on purpose to bring more attention to the program. Now you could say not good attention and I would probably agree, but they say any attention is good attention and to a team sinking it couldn't hurt. Please tell me G-73 that you do not dislike LK or harbor ill because of something as stupid as noted above? I thought a man of your spiritual walk could look past something that trivial and give LK credit for what he's accomplished thus far to a damaged program. I for one think he's done an incredible job, and he'll prove to be better than PC.

You are mediocre. Will you even be relevant this season? LSU is reloaded, South Carolina is reloaded, Georgia too. Youll be lucky to get out of your conference at .500. I love your coach but as a Longhorn where he helped them win. The post Tebow era at Florida hasnt really treated you very well. When Lame Kitten is on top the rankings this year ill wait to hear your excuse for losing to Jacksonville State. 

Well, you are right about one thing- we play in the best conference in America and the competition is rough.  That's why Lame ran away so quick.  His mouth was writing checks his behind couldn't cash.  We lost a ton of talent to the NFL and many early, so it did put a dent in the depth.  Weis' play calling was suspect, as well.  Those issues are all addressed, as well as top 3-5 class recruiting of our own.  It is heavy on both sides of the line of scrimmage and a power back, which is what we lacked last year.  In a line of scrimmage league, you gotta have a power game.  We got that fixed and brought in Pease from Boise to run the offense.  We're fine, and we'll be relevant sooner than you'll be over probation.  Jailbirds.

It's amazing how jealous everyone is of USC.  It's not bad enough that there is so much eastcoast bias and that they all got together and used something as weak as Reggie Bush's family staying in a house for free in order to stop SC from continuing their college football dominance.  Well the ban is over, SC will be ranked 3rd nationally going into the season and at the end of the year Barkley will have the Heisman and USC will have won another national championship.  Deal with it you jealous roundmouths!

I'd hate to see him playing for a corrupt, immoral person like Kiffin.

I'm starting to honestly think that it's somehow vogue to hate this guy and slander him and for the life of me I don't know why.

I'm seriously asking you to list this man's incredible egregious faults that make him so reprehensible and contemptible...I'll wait, take your time. Oh, and please don't list "because he left tenn" because as I have said ad nauseum, he told tenn he'd leave for the SC job if it came up and they agreed...there was no surprise other than it happening so quickly (life happens). So have at it and I'll look forward to your response.
