Kiffin delaying depth chart until the end

LOS ANGELES -- Somewhere between Wednesday’s final Coliseum scrimmage and the first snap in Hawaii, Lane Kiffin will finally announce who is going to be the USC Trojans starting quarterback entering the 2013 season.

It will also mean the release of the highly anticipated first game depth chart, and that in itself figures to take on enough conversation and debate to whet the gridiron appetite of any cardinal and gold disciple.

If you think that the announcement of starting quarterback between sophomores Cody Kessler and Max Wittek has been a process, be reminded there are other positions, such as the offensive line and the WILL linebacker position, that have also caught the fancy of diehard Trojans fans.
