Last year BC fans had #FireSpaz, but the multitude of USC fans seem to have taken #FireLaneKiffin to another level.
Last week, after an embarrassing loss to Washington State in which the Trojans managed to throw the ball to Wazzu cornerback Damante Horton (twice) more times than they managed to complete a pass for double-digit yardage (zero), a USC fan used spray paint to 'modify' a fire lane into a Fire Lane Kiffin.
But that's just the beginning. Thanks to Twitter, we're able to get a glimpse at USC fans in their despair. It's a lot more fun now that we've gone from Spaz to Daz.
Hey coach Kiffin. The object of the game is to move the ball FORWARD not sideways. #USC #firelanekiffin— Greg Vit (@gvitty) September 8, 2013
Seriously, if calls one more bubble screen..... #FireLaneKiffin— Kevin Parker (@kevinparkerLA) September 8, 2013
Ok we gotta fire Lane Kiffin. I'm done seeing screen passes for 3 straight years.— Swiff D ™ (@SwiffD) September 8, 2013
I just played a Madden game where I only ran bubble screens and run plays. I lost 56-0 #firelanekiffin— Chris Parascandolo (@CScondi) September 8, 2013
I take it you guys aren't pleased with the play calling.
Run the ball on 3rd and 15? Predictable. #FireLaneKiffin— Gunman (@gunman) September 8, 2013
Just run into the line and punt Lane. #fireLaneKiffin— Jay Cottrell (@JayCottrell34) September 8, 2013
Ah. That sounds familiar.
If Lane Kiffin's employed tomorrow, it better be as a hot dog vendor at the Coliseum. No offense to the hot dog vendors. #FireLaneKiffin— Brennan W. Penney (@BrennanWPenney) September 8, 2013
If you lose to Wazoo, firing isn't enough. Deportation and forfeiture of citizenship, I think. #firelanekiffin— John Bicknell (@JohnBick1960) September 8, 2013
But who would take him?
Oh my God, this is utterly hilarious:

If you want to understand the definition of hate,
Lose the home opener to Washington State.
Just two games in and the year’s down the drain
While the chants and the hashtags say: #FireLane.
As a former student and a current alum
I think Layla is hot and I think that you’re dumb.
Third and thirteen I’ll replay the scene
What play did you call? Bubble screen!
There's much more. I recommend reading it.
Also -- I like Bacon and also Sports. I would probably enjoy that website.
Finally, with a suggestion that really would have helped BC fans out last year...
If USC is not going to fire Lane Kiffin, then I demand they start serving alcohol again in the Coliseum. @uscpsycho @lost_angeles— Dane McLeod (@danemcleod) September 10, 2013
Well played, sir.
