A dose of perspective

LOS ANGELES -- In my humble opinion, cardinal-and-gold recruiting reflections on what I saw, what I heard, and what I think.

The factor: If the "Kiffin factor" is going to be blamed for the exodus of former commits, then the Trojans' head coach should get credit for securing the services and early admission of National Player of the Year QB Max Browne; DBs Su'a Cravens, Leon McQuay lll and Chris Hawkins; DL Kenny Bigelow; and RB Justin Davis.
