Kiffin's conservative play calling dooms No. 25 USC

Conservative and Kiffin are never used in the same sentence unless it's a statement noting something the head coach could use more of.
The 2013 version of Kiffin is still frustrating fans but unlike anything they've seen before. Kiffin can't seem to let his offense loose.
"The plan was if we were able to hold up on defense to make sure we didn't screw up on offense," Kiffin said.
That demeanor and his quarterbacks combining to go 11-for-21 for 54 yards and two interceptions led to what the head coach called a "very disappointing day" for USC football with the No. 25 Trojans (1-1, 0-1)
