As reported on


A Knoxville attorney has filed paperwork seeking to rename a local waste water treatment plant in honor of Lane Kiffin.

Drew McElroy paid $262 and filed an application with the Knoxville City Council Public Properties and Facilities Naming Committee to rename the Kuwahee Wastewater Treatment Plant as the Lane Kiffin Sewage Center.

"It dawned on me—Lane Kiffin told us that he hoped the fans would understand. I thought, 'Well, naming the wastewater plant for him would let him know, I think very clearly, we do understand,' " McElroy told WBIR-TV, a local NBC affiliate. "We want to memorialize his stay here, and I think this would be doing it appropriately."

According to WBIR, McElroy wrote that he wanted "to honor our recently departed head coach and raise awareness of the good work done by the Knoxville Utilities Board."

The committee hasn't set a date for its next meeting, but McElroy said he intends to follow through.

Now for the Preacher's commentary on this. I am highly upset that Lane Kiffin left Tennessee. As a die hard Crimson Tide fan, that may surprise some of you.

Now, the Vols have got a shot at having a good coach...

Man, that burns me up. And now the fans want to bestow this honor on Kiffin? They stole this idea from Alabama, because their are no fewer than eight sewage plants and one dirty diaper recycling plant named in honor of Phillip Fulmer in the "Heart of Dixie".

Well, they have always wanted to be like the Tide, but this is blatant forgery...
