The Big Orange Army took to the streets of Knoxville near Johnny Majors Blvd. (a coach with real class) and demanded Lane Kiffin. 

Reportedly, mattresses and boxes were set on fire and had to be put out as the fans waited for Kiffin to emerge from the building where he held his cowardice conference. 

Later on, they burned Kiffin in effegy and painted obscene gestures about him and his wife on the Rock on campus near the Hill. 

Note to Lane:  Earthquakes in Southern California will feel like manna from Heaven compared to what the Big Orange hoped to give you Tuesday night.

He appeared as if he feared for his life for the press conference he held to let reporters know in his defiant, smug tone that he was "leaving the program better than he found it" 14 months ago.  With arms folded, he left quickly without questions taken and he turned his back on his players for the second time in one day. 

As he emerged, they chased him down the street and several talked about going to his house.  Good thing his introductory press conference is at USC so early tomorrow.

Yeah, if I were you Lane, I would catch the red eye out to the West Coast and never look back.  No one in the SEC likes you and you need to pray the Trojans never have to face the SEC post season as well.  We will make sure to bring our "whoopin sticks" to face the "boys" at USC. 

Funny that you left under the cover of darkness, but then maybe not so much ironic as it might seem.  Your "boys" need to hurry and get out of K-Town as well because they are as much the enemy now as you are.  Al Davis, as crazy as he may be, was exactly right when he summed you up in words: "Lane Kiffin is a professional liar."
