Bulldog Stadium Turns 25 years old today and...
the best defensive end to ever play in that stadium is Jethro Franklin. Franklin is now the defensive line coach at USC. He joins another former Bulldog, Lane Kiffin, on the Trojan staff.
Franklin you are loved as a former Bulldog, but hated as a member of the Trojan staff. I will never forget the sack you missed on San Jose State's Mike Perez in 1986, as he threw the game winning touchdown pass for the 45-41 win.
As for Kiffin, he never got to play much for the Bulldogs, but has become a great coach. Don't be surprised if he becomes the next "Tedford".
