In the spirit of the holidays:
The Obvious Gift for Lane Kiffin: A well-received new defensive coordinator.
The Not-So-Obvious Gift: A 2013 season without controversy.
The Obvious Gift for USC athletic director Pat Haden: Vindication in 2013 for his unconditional support of provocative head coach Lane Kiffin.
The Not-So-Obvious Gift: A stand-by ticket to the Island of the Unknown if Kiffin's 2013 team does a 2012 repeat.
