LOS ANGELES -- When Trojans first-year offensive line coach Mike Summers recently left his feet to give one of his massive linemen the ultimate chest bump for opening a huge hole, it was his way of displaying his passion for how intense an offensive lineman should play.

Summers knows that one of the reasons that Trojans head coach Lane Kiffin brought him in was for an O-line overhaul. The former University of Kentucky line coach acknowledges there is still work to be done and that if it's going to get done, it starts with an attitude change -- namely mean and nasty.
