A tale of two coaches

LOS ANGELES -- Let's see, there's "A Tale of Two Cities" by Charles Dickens, locations London and Paris, and then there's the tale of two coaches by Rich Rodriguez and Lane Kiffin, locations Tucson, Ariz., and Los Angeles, respectively.

While Dickens' classic tale is fraught with intrigue and mystery, there is intrigue but nothing really mysterious about USC's Kiffin or Arizona's Rodriguez.

If there is a Dickensian mystery, it's how the Pac-12 South Division foes react to each other when they collide at Arizona Stadium on Saturday afternoon.
