Tennessee Volunteers: Bryce Brown & Lane Kiffin Fulfill Old Cliche

Brennen SCorrespondent IMarch 16, 2009

I know many of you have heard the old cliche, "The apple doesn't fall far from the tree." Usually that is in regards to parent and child, but in the world of college football it applies to a certain Tennessee coach and his prized recruit.

Today, the nation's No. 1 running back Bryce Brown announced his decision to play for the Tennessee Volunteers.

My first reaction was, "Why in the World would this guy want to play for Tennessee?" However, after I got to thinking, the light bulb turned on and everything made sense. "The apple (Bryce Brown) doesn't fall far from the tree (Lane Kiffin.)"

We have all heard how obnoxious and rude Lane Kiffin has been since being hired as the head coach of Tennessee. His arrogance and downright stupidity have already gotten the entire SEC gunning for him and his team.

Bryce Brown decided that he was so special that he waited an entire month and half after signing day to announce his college choice. He had the entire media following him and every move he made. He announced his decision at the freaking Kansas Sports Hall of Fame folks!

The biggest thing I want to know is, what did Kiffin say to Brown that made him want to play football for Tennessee? My guess is Kiffin smooth-talked him and appealed to his ego because he knew Bryce Brown's ego was as big as his.

These two people are so similar it disgusts me. Lane Kiffin and Bryce Brown are both looking for attention, and they are both looking out for No. 1.

Well here's a news flash, so is everyone else in college football! Lose the ego and play ball. This upcoming season, everything will be settled out on the field.

Lane Kiffin will get his, and at the rate Brown's going, I expect that his superstar mentality will get the best of him. He'll end up in jail (sorry if that's harsh.)

"The apple never falls far from the tree." Lane Kiffin and Bryce Brown confirmed that.
