Just how fed up was USC with Lane Kiffin after last night's embarrasing 62-41 loss to Arizona State? Well, USC didn't even wait until after the game. Inside USC reported that Athletic Director Pat Haden and a few other advisers met up and came to that decision during Arizona State's 28-0 run in the third quarter.

That's right, they absolutely could not wait to fire him.

USC announced news of Kiffin's firing on its website this morning, long after Kiffin made that painful trip home from that LAX parking lot.
