Tennessee's Lane Kiffin Loved By BHB

Big House BobSenior Analyst IIMarch 10, 2009

I have wrote about Lane Kiffin at Tennessee a number of times already. He seems like a walking recruiting violation and has called "out" about every program in the SEC after just only being on the job for about three and a half months.

We all remember Steve Spurrier's classic line when he was at Florida: "You can't spell Citrus (Bowl) without a U and a T". Well that U and a T now has a guy that go head to head with "the old ball coach" and spit out his own lendgardy one-liners during a late night signing day eve recruiting call with soon to be South Carolina commit Alshon Jeffrey.

According to Jeffrey and Wilson, Kiffin told Jeffrey that if he chose the Gamecocks, he would end up pumping gas for the rest of his life like all the other players from that state who had gone to South Carolina.

Lane, thank you for making a boring offseason, not so boring.

Wolverine News and Notes:

  • Manny Harris was named to the first team All-Big Ten. Sims was named to the second team.
  • There are "rumblings" from some leading recruiting Websites that Ohio wide reciver D.J. Williamson could be on the verge of committing to the Wolverines after Friday's Junior Day. DJ is 6"1, 172 pounds and runs a 4.4 in the 40. D.J. plays his high school football at Warren Harding. D.J. would be Michigan's fourth wide out commit to the 2010 class. Rich Rodriquez didn't have a comment on whether Michigan was planning on starting 10 wide outs on offense in 2011.
  • Cory Zirbel's knee won't allow him to play football any longer. Cory was expected to be a starter last year on the offensive line when his knee started bothering him in summer workouts, during surgery a rare knee condition called femoral condyle defect was found. Cory will help the team as a coach.
