Lane Kiffin weighs in on SEC hurry-up debate, because you were wondering


The USC coach has an insight on the issue. Also, his team has to play Oregon frequently.

College football coaches sure do have opinions on the hurry-up offense. Nick Saban, Bret Bielema and Will Muschamp think it stinks and is dangerous. Coaches who use up-tempo offenses like Dana Holgorsen and Mike Leach think that's a bunch of nonsense.

We might as well ask what USC coach Lane Kiffin thi--oh, someone already asked him:

Alright, we get it. Coaches that run up-tempo spreads like the offense and don't see what the issue is, and coaches that don't run up-tempo offenses think it's dangerous.

Until someone produces a peer-reviewed study that conclusively shows that the hurry-up offense is more dangerous than its "traditional" counterpart, let's all just relax and talk about things that have been proven. Like how pizza is great.
