Tennessee: WTH?

Hey everyone. The fun keeps on coming.

ESPN now is reporting that Lane Kiffin, the affable Tennessee coach, has agreed to a deal with Southern Cal. So he'd be gonzo from Rocky Top.

How bummed are Tennessee fans?

I don't expect you to be sympathetic. Auburn fans and (our few resident) Alabama sympathists have this in common: Feeling at least moderate disdain toward UT.

Next coach at UT? Thoughts?

Okay Jay, you did it. You topped the Tuberville/Troy story. This one is hilarious. I do feel for the Rocky Top people, but I do believe they will be better off without Kiffikin. The guy just doesn't have the qualities I like in a coach. He may grow into it.

He's not a Tennessee graduate!

7:49 PM  
Blogger Bellefay1 said...

UT fans on my website are absolutely imploding.

They defended Kiffin and his big mouth no matter what and he just Bobby Petrino'd them.

His only endearing quality was recruiting and Tennessee doesn't have a coach less then 3 weeks before signing day. Remember the press that Kiffin got for contacting Florida recruits right after Urban said he needs a break...wow.

I can't wait for sports radio tomorrow.

NCAA probe of USC complete
By Charles Robinson and Jason Cole, Yahoo! Sports
Jan 11, 4:54 pm EST

After almost four years of investigation, the NCAA’s probe into the University of Southern California athletic program has reached a conclusion. Sources familiar with the investigation have told Yahoo! Sports that the NCAA’s Committee on Infractions will meet Feb. 19-21 to address what investigators uncovered at USC. According to typical NCAA procedures, if sanctions are necessary, they will be determined and then made public via a news conference within six to eight weeks of the February hearing.

7:50 PM  
Blogger wtc said...

WOW, recruiting is going to get interesting. UT has several bigtime recruits that were there only because of Monte Kiffin, according to their quotes. Look for some of them to defect.

7:50 PM

Bill Curry is available.

Trooper is good at what he does, but is no HC.

This couldn't happen to two nicer schools. UT scorned and USCw gets a joke.

Blogger FSJ said...

wtc,

Talk to your mom to see if there are any recruits that AU and Bama can steal...

7:51 PM  
Blogger SteveFL said...

I wouldn't think that UT would go after Troop. Yes, he is an up and comer, but UT has the bucks to get a coach that was at least a high profile coordinator.

7:51 PM  
Blogger Jet Jetarsky said...

Butch and Skip are good ideas. Harbaugh is not ... he looks like he'd leave you in a second.

7:52 PM  
Blogger Turfman said...

Losing Trooper would KILL our recruiting class and I think he's likely to be successful as an HC but lets hope the PTB at UT see it your way FSJ.

7:52 PM  
Blogger FSJ said...

I'd like to be the first to say that Saban made Kiffen's arse quit...

Just kidding.

7:52 PM  
Blogger wtc said...

If they went after Trooper, it would be the recruiting coordinator job. Kiffin, his dad and Orgeron are leaving.

7:53 PM  
Blogger Eddie said...

UT is not going after Troop. Give that a rest.

UT will be going after John Gruden. I put money on that. Will they land him?

Blogger Jet Jetarsky said...

Turfman ...

I love me some Troop but he's about as ready to be head coach at UT as I am.

7:53 PM  
Blogger Turfman said...

Is Kiffin the biggest scam artist to pass through since Francione(?)?

7:53 PM  
Blogger FSJ said...

Trooper isn't even the best recruiter on Auburn's staff.

7:54 PM  
Blogger Jay G. Tate said...

Auburn's current recruiting class would, in my opinion, be unaffected by Taylor's departure.

7:55 PM  
Blogger FSJ said...

Turfman...Kiffin and Frauchione are similar.

What a poor hire for USC, IMO.

7:55 PM  
Blogger Jay G. Tate said...

Thigpen is the best recruiter and I'd say Grimes is No. 2 ... if you're not counting the head coach. So that could be three guys before we even get to Taylor.

7:55 PM  
Blogger shesaid said...

Let's see.....Sunny Southern California or Knoxville, Tennessee. SOLD!!

7:55 PM  
Blogger Turfman said...

No Gruden has already said he will sit out a year and return to the NFL. I doubt he goes to UT..I think Butch Davis might jump this time. How long can everyone pretend that Chris Peterson is not killing at BSU?

7:56 PM  
Blogger wtc said...

FSJ-In a word,she said YES.

Trouble is, both have an almost full class.
UA lost a lineman, Juwan James, to UT. Blake Sims is visiting this weekend i think. He droppes UA last Thursday.

AU could go after Corey Miller. He is close to Lattimore and Mack, both seem to headed to AU.

7:56 PM  
Blogger Jay G. Tate said...

See, I think Kiffin is an excellent coach. I'd hire him ... and I wouldn't say that about many people.

7:56 PM

With that said, Trooper waves a mean towel.

Absolutely Un.Be.Lievable. A pric until the very end. At least he was consistent.

Tom Dienhart of Yahoo Sports:

"Air Force’s Troy Calhoun may be a top target to replace Kiffin."

Huh?

7:57 PM  
Blogger Wakeriderof87 said...

This is what happens when you hire dirt bags, Kiffin is a dirtbag, Petrino is a dirtbag and Saban is a dirtbag... this is the first of the 3.

7:57 PM  
Blogger SteveFL said...

It may be that Kiffikin knows sanctions are coming against USCw, but is willing to work through them, but man. That is one dirty way to treat UT. They are one of the most well funded athletic departments in the country.

I do consider Kiffikin doing this to be highly unethical. When a coach signs with a university there is an assumption on both sides that he will be there at least several seasons. Tennesse should really say good ridence. I wouldn't want the guy either.

This is worse than Coach Fraud who convinced kids to come to the evil empire while probation was looming and then left them.

7:58 PM  
Blogger FSJ said...

You think Jay?

He did a great job with Crompton..but they had some WTH games this year.

7:58 PM  
Blogger Jay G. Tate said...

I like Calhoun a lot, too.

When Auburn was "searching" after the 2008 season, a guy I really respect told me Calhoun was the guy to get.

This guy is a former NFL coordinator.

7:58 PM  
Blogger Eddie said...

Dang...late on my post. JG already stated that.

I also agree with JG about Kiffin.

7:58 PM  
Blogger shesaid said...

Yeah FSJ, I can think of one particular WTH game for UT this season.

7:59 PM  
Blogger Jay G. Tate said...

Auburn had some WTH games this year, too. It's all part of learning your kids, what they do well, how to adjust in what was (for the Kiffins) a new kind of football.

7:59 PM  
Blogger Jet Jetarsky said...

I don't think Tennessee needs to make any calls where they're not going to get serious consideration. I know Gruden spent a year or two there as a GA, but I sense he's a pro guy.

Skip Holtz makes sense to me. So does Butch. Three weeks before signing day, I'm not sure Gruden can put it together.

8:00 PM  
Blogger SteveFL said...

Jay, Kiffikin's mouth makes him a turn off as a head coach because his comments don't benefit the program. Pissing off people like Urban Meyer is a bad idea.

8:00 PM

Great hire for USCw! They are going to need a man who will laugh in the face of NCAA sanctions!

Jay G..Who do you think will have more career success, Kiffin or Chizik?

8:02 PM  
Blogger SteveFL said...

Doesn't Air Force run the same Jet/Sky offense that Georgia Tech runs? I can't imagine that at UT, but I could be wrong.

Great to see you BigCat!

Turfman...I'll go with Kiffin because the Pac Ten is not the SEC.

I don't have an answer now. Chizik and his guys exceeded my expectations in 2009 ...

I was suprised at Kiffin's success at UT. I always thought him and his staff were clowns(other than Monty). Obviously alot of solid recruits disagreed.

Turf, I would still call Chizik a wait and see. He has done an excellent job so far in terms of decision making and putting together a cohesive staff. It isn't until you get to 4 or 5 years down the road that you get an idea if a coach can maintain a program. The new wears off and fans can become bored.

If I were a UT fan, I would go after Chris Peterson. Boise State is very impressive. With UT talent, he would do very well.

I have a business plan due tomorrow for 2010 and the wife just yelled downstairs.

I was really looking forward to watching Kentucky-Florida tonight and now Lane has sort of ruined that for me. I can't focus.

Damn you Kiffin.

Wow...I just wanted to watch the Conan/Leno implosions tonight.

Thanks Kiffin.

Why didn't we hear a USCw asking for permission to talk to Kiffikin message? I would have thought we would hear that. UT would put it out so the fans wouldn't have such a bowel movement when this happened.

Huntsville/Florence no difference, its all basically southern tennessee to me being in Mobile. I think Playboy should do a special issue "coaches wives of the SEC/Pac 10/ Big 12 but leave out the old ugly dames
