Andrew Luck is the "Perfect QB." Because Lane Kiffin said so.

Guess which Pac-12 quarterback who doesn't play for USC was praised by Trojan head football coach Lane Kiffin? You guessed it, Stanford's Andrew Luck. Kiffin went as far as comparing him to that other famous Stanford QB, John Elway.

"I don't know how you could find a more efficient quarterback that's ever played college football," Kiffin said Tuesday. "If you put his numbers up, what he's done, wins and losses and red-zone production. ... He's pretty much perfect." 

Asked later if he really meant what he said and wasn't just trying to hype up USC's opponent this week, Kiffin stood by it. 

"I do believe that, and I'm not the only one," he said. "People have been saying that for two years. You hear draft people say that he's the best quarterback prospect since Elway. You had a team come out and say before he declared that he was going to be the No. 1 pick in the draft. 

"I can't imagine that's been said many times, ever." 

Matt Barkley should be so thrilled to hear his coach heaping massive helpings of praise to the QB of the team USC is meeting this Saturday. Then again this could be the some kind of psychological mind games Kiffin is playing on Barkley to get his game up to spoil the Cardinal's BCS title hopes.
