This is WAY too funny to me. What a joke. Kiffin is a freaking idiot. Obvisiosly, Lane has no confidence in his coaching skills. It would be a lot easier to build a program at Tenn then at USC on probation. What is USC thinking?
Maybe Al Davis was right all along.. Kiffin is a liar!
BREAKING NEWS...the Knox county sheriff will become the new UT head coach, and he will be bringing all the Vol players under his care with him, that should really give them a loaded team next year. on a side note, he will be bringing in McGruff the crime dog to replace Smokey.
I got a good laugh at their Basketball team last weekend. Four of the "regulars" got busted over new years for smoking dope and carrying weapons.(again)
One of the local boys from Grainger County, who would not have otherwise been off from the bench but for the draftees situation, went on the court and won the game for the Vols, overcoming something like 100 to 1 odds of a tie.(due to the four high scoring draftees being ousted)
They have had some kick ass teams in Football and Basketball. They seem to draft players that have mad skills and don't mind baggage that lands them in jail. It is sad when they interview a senior player and even the interviewer doesn't understand what they are saying because they blew through high-school on a pass, simply because they could run fast and do something with a ball.
Hell, one of the Basketball players that got arrested bailed on his college contract and went pro immediately. I didn't hear the terms but it is likely he got a million + deal to start(as soon as he gets past his court case). Oh well, at least his bad behavior and inability to speak in sentences will be right at home at the professional level.
It's all about the money guys. There is no loyalty any more. If you offer me more money than this guy is, I'll work for you.
I do believe it had to do with the trouble at UT as well. But if he thinks it's going to be any different at USC, he's out of his mind. These are college kids far away from home with little supervision. Been there done that...
I actually disagree with you on this on Firebolt. Just in this instance. It is about the money 98% of the time though. Kiffin was getting more money at Tenn then any other coach in the nation when you count the money for the assistants.
Kiffin was more loyal to USC then Tenn while at Tenn. He ran USC video on a loop in the Tenn locker room.
He wont make that at USC. He has always wanted to be a head coach there since he was there under Carrol as the Offensive Coordinator.
I still hate the guy and hope the recruits turn on him!
