Um, is this really worthy of comment?
It seems like a disrespectful gesture towards the Bowl and the GT team ..
As to what the reasons are for this snafu, I would be interested in knowing.
Disrespectful? Like they did it on purpose?
Maybe a long line at king taco?
That sucks it caused Ga Tech to leave. I hope it was a flat tire or something and not just sloppy planning.
Being on time .. is that difficult?
An hour late is not like being tardy by 15 minutes.
As I said, curious to know the reason.
And, yes, it would appear at first glance to be disrespectful without knowing what the reasons are for being an hour late to a bowl sponsored event for both teams.
Talk about jumping to conclusions based on nothing.
What would be a valid reason, other than transportation issues (bad traffic, bus broke down, bus company was late, etc.)? If it was a transportation issue, wouldn't a courtesy call have likely avoided the GT walkout? Perhaps one was made, but I doubt GT would walk out if they knew USC was going to be late due to something USC was unable to avoid.
Guys Slow the fuck down. SC practiced and had 10 minutes to change at the hotel and head back out. Sun Bowl reps were aware.
I'm blaming the sombrero. Kiffin put it on and switched to Ethnic Standard Time. An hour late is really on time.
Should have posted this from the start! Seems like a valid excuse then, I'm now settled.
From the Sun Bowl's twitter feed:
Hyundai Sun Bowl @HyundaiSunBowl
Now let's move on, nothing to see here. Tomorrow we have GT at hospital visits and both teams meeting real heroes at Fort Bliss #SunBowl
13m Hyundai Sun Bowl Hyundai Sun Bowl @HyundaiSunBowl
Then practice ran late and they had to haul 100+ people to the other side of town. Best scenario? No. Did GT leave? Yes.
14m Hyundai Sun Bowl Hyundai Sun Bowl @HyundaiSunBowl
Here's what happened: USC practiced at SAC, for out of towners that's on the other side of town!
I'm blaming it on the hair dryers.
According to folks I've talked to, USC's late dinner arrival is not a big deal. Late flight led to late practice led to late dinner.

I hope this dinner was at Taco Bueno. That might be the only good thing about El Paso. Hank Hill loves it too!

The teams have two more joint public functions. If USC is late for either of those, we'll have a story. Until then, I don't think so.
Man, for a guy who never misses an opportunity to shit on CLK or USC, to hear him say this pretty much tells you it's no biggie.
This only a story because......
It's Lane Kiffin and USC
"If this was a prize fight they'd call it off"- F ND!
That is definitely true.
Another Kiffin bashing story - used: snafu, prompting Georgia Tech’s players and coaches to walk out, bad form, all of his mishaps. This in 4 total sentences, at least he spelled Kiffin correctly!!
From today's LA Times:
A USC athletic department spokesman said the Trojans’ tardiness was because of their late arrival at the airport, which pushed back the start of practice and their return to the team hotel before they departed for the dinner. The spokesman said USC apprised bowl officials of its delays.
This is why I hate social media and twitter wanna be reporters makes it too easy for them to type a sentence or two without getting any facts, fact is that USC only showed up 30 minutes late while GT arrived 30 minutes early for the dinner

That's a different take on it. Who is to say what the starting point is for SC being late? People are normally a little early for dinner, and this time we are just a little late not a full hour late. What a douchebag for embellishing the timeline.
I knew it. Flight delays are because of Kiffin. When is the nation going to wake up?
I have never heard of any other bowl that USC has played in, that held the dinner on the same day as the arrival of one of the teams.
Poor planning, but why didn't the bowl people inform GTech? THAT is disrespectful.

All the problems in the world are due to Lane Kiffin and George Bush
