Writers and reporters learned a valuable lesson after USC’s practice on Wednesday — ask a question about a specific player’s injury and the fun ends for everyone. As you can see from the video above that Lindsey Thiry of FOX Sports shared on Twitter, the first question asked to Lane Kiffin during his media session Wednesday was also the last. Thiry mentioned on Twitter that she muted the question in her YouTube video in order to adhere to USC’s policy, since the question named a specific player.
Like it or not, this is how it’s going to be at USC this season and going forward. Last week, the Trojans stripped a reporter of his press credentials for two weeks of practice and the Sept. 22 Cal game for writing about kicker Andre Heidari’s leg injury. That was a loud statement from Kiffin, who decided to make another one on Wednesday. All it takes is one bad egg to spoil the dozen. Let’s learn to follow the rules, children.
