With a title like that, some might think that I'm a bitter old kook. I'm not. I however, do enjoy seeing people get their comeuppence when they clearly deserve it.


Lane Kiffin

In the perpetual drama that is Lane Kiffin, Kiffin has now left Tennessee for his former employer USC to replace Pete Carroll.

Good hire, bad hire, or WTF?

My answer is the invisible answer. Here's to hoping that USC's hire of Kiffin will lead the NCAA to harshly punish USC. Kiffin is clearly trying to dodge the investigations that he incurred at Tennessee.

The outgoing USC coach, Pete Carroll meanwhile, left while he still could amidst the possibility of disciplinary action by the NCAA for recruitment violations, in regards to Reggie Bush and others.

Here's to hoping that Kiffin gets his comeuppance for treating Al Davis and the Raiders as his personal punching bag.

Here's a good article on the matter from Sports Illustrated :
