Yahoo’s Pat Forde joined the show to talk about Lane Kiffin and USC, and the Heisman picture.

Forde thinks that Lane Kiffin is in trouble at USC. And he said that Kiffin is “a little chippy, a little bit of a jerk,” and his personality hasn’t helped. Forde thinks Kiffin rubs many people the wrong way.

Forde said he has no problem voting for a freshman for Heisman. He said Johnny Manziel is “incredibly dynamic” and is a bona fide candidate. Forde agreed with Dan that there is some Robert Griffin III in Manziel.

Forde said that he thinks that the most dangerous game for the top three teams is Notre Dame’s game against USC. He said Kansas State and Oregon have manageable games left, even with the ranked opponents the Ducks face.
