    “GH: Welcome to big-time college football. Where the coaches come and go as they please and paid millions at almost every stop. Meanwhile, the players are forced to carry a minimum GPA, paid no cash for the millions (billions?) their work generates, slapped with heavy penalties if they want to transfer to another school and have their personal lives scrutinized by a 24-hour media that is more persistent and unrelenting than a Kansas City Star telemarketer.”

    Damn it, my brand new irony meter just exploded. Again.

    Greg, do you not see any irony in that last sentence (i.e., “their personal lives scrutinized by a 24-hour media”) and you blantantly taking Tyshawn Taylor’s comments out of context in your last post just so you have something to write about??

    Given your recent penchant for taking things out of context to push a narrative, are we to believe that Kiffin is really leaving Tennessee? I shall have to find a real news source to verify your work against as you are apparently no longer wanting to be considered as a credible journalist.

    This Kiffin bastard still hasn’t accomplished a god damn thing yet he still keeps getting big jobs and is treated like he’s got a fist full of rings. I don’t get it.

    What exactly has he done besides use the Al Davis fiasco as a PR opportunity? He went 7-6 at Tennessee and got CRUSHED by Va Tech in the Chick-fil-A Bowl. Was this the best Mike Garrett could do? He hired Pete Carroll because he was desperate, but there are far more accomplished, experienced, credible names out there worth courting than Lane f’n Kiffin.

    Good luck with that USC.

    I don’t have a complaint about your take, Greg, but the historical methaphor that “[n]ow the Orange is treating Lane like he was Abe Lincoln” doesn’t quite work. Although Tennessee seceded, Knoxville was a central part of the East Tennessee Unionist territory. Lincoln was much admired in the region, which produced his second vice-present, Andrew Johnson, and often implored his Western generals to occupy it — a suggestion which Buell and Rosecrans, but Grant eventually fulfilled after securing Chattanooga.

    I would agree, though, that Lane Kiffin is about as popular as a “revenooer” in the Smokies.


    GH: Mo, Have you been to Tennessee in the past, oh, 100 years? There are more statues of Robert E. Lee in those hills than dentures.

    Kiffin is a sleaze and nutjob, but on the other hand, I don’t care about Tennessee. They pushed out Phil and he gave them 20 years. What comes around…………….

    Hope the Trojans are a good fit. Last year they busted against the Beavers, and they may have to contend with an angry Cougar or two.

    GH: Rack ’em.

    I used the live in Tennessee, in country trod by the likes of Gideon Pillow, Leonidas Polk and Nathan Bedford Forrest. Been to Shiloh, Stone’s River and Missionary Ridge. I’ve seen plenty of statues memorializing Confederate heroes — including the three named above — but not one of Lee in Knoxville.

    Mo, I do appreciate the history lesson, and was unaware of the Tennessee Divide. I believe the real reason Kiffin left for the West Bank was for the opportunity of more product endorsement. As the #1 prick and coach of the Trojans I think it’s a perfect fit.

    Why does anyone feel bad for Tennessee after the way they shabbily treated Phil Fulmer? he only won them their only national title. after bowls every year, he has one 5-7 and his job is gone.
