Ah, the weekend – special Crazy is, as crazy does edition

I have to admit, Lane Kiffin is surely making a splash in the SEC.  First off, he pisses off Spurier to the point the Ole’ Visor Wearer accuses him of not taking the coaching test or something. Then Kiffin takes on Saban and Meyer at the same time over some players.  He also declares there is a fence being constructed around Tennessee.  People in at least seven states celebrate, at least until they find out the fence is metaphorical and just a suggestion or really aspirational.

The Kiffer outdid himself this week by calling out St. Urban in front of 1,000 Vol partisans, accusing the Florida coach of a blatant recruiting violation in the recruitment of receiver Nu’Keese Richardson.  Apparently, St. Urban’s phone got him in trouble again when Meyer called Richardson during his official in Knoxville.

“Just so you know, when a recruit’s on another campus, you can’t call a recruit on another campus,” Kiffin said. “I love the fact that Urban had to cheat, and still didn’t get him (Richardson).

The problem was, he was speaking wayyyyy out of league.  Not so much of a violation.  Of course, Jeremy Foley was none too happy.  Neither was Mike Slive.  The Kiffer was reprimanded by the SEC and apologized.

Seriously, I don’t need to go into the whole who struck John about the Kiffer’s time in Oakland.  He was fired for taking pot shots at his players and boss, both to the media and in public speaking engagements.  I guess doing so against other coaches instead of Mike Hamilton is evidence of self-growth. But still, you have to wonder when he’s going to shoot off his mouth about the Tennessee administration or some player.  The over-under has to be around September 20th.

Oh, yeah, he also called out a player’s grandmother as the reason that player didn’t go to Tennessee.  But, hey, it’s all good, they’re not haters, y’all.

Any crazy competition that Bobby Petrino, Houston Nutt or Les Miles enters would normally result in a grand championship for any one of them.  Not so for the title of craziest mofo in the SEC, that goes to The Kiffer.  Maybe with all the money laying around in Knoxville, The Kiffer can get this guy to come in:

    The worst part in all of this is that this is vindicating Al Davis. Now Al was right about Kiffin all along. As a die hard Raider fan, I think I’m gonna be sick.

    Kiffin may win at UT because I think he knows how to coach and has surrounded himself with others who can coach, but this stuff won’t stop. He can’t help himself. Every single player and parent involved with our (USC) program hates him. His big problem is that his act flies better in the NFL – pro players relate better to him. Players on the Raiders actually respected the guy, he’s a complete a-hole but he’s a straight shooter and that’s what players in the league want, they don’t want a yes-man when they can be cut w/o a pay check at any moment. But he is going to torch relationships with so many high schools, other coaches, etc, that even if he does win, he’ll have made it as hard for himself as humanly possible.

    My point is that he’ll jump ship the first time a prettier one passes by. As a Dawg fan and blogger, I’ll never have to search for material ever again.

    You have to admit though bulldog, as you type it up you stop on occasion and ask yourself, “Really? He said that?”

    I agree though, the material just writes itself.

    How low must Philmer feel? I bet he hasn’t visited a buffet since…since…well, who am I kiddin’.

    Oh, it is like he has Dudley Moore from ‘Crazy People’ writing his stuff.

    There’s now question Lane Kiffin is the Joe Biden of college football. And, yes, right now, Evil Al is feeling high and mighty with Kiffer showing his true colors. But make no mistake – Al’s the real reason the Raiders suck. The buck stops with him on every major decision in the franchise and sometimes he doesn’t show up at the office until 4 p.m. You can’t run a company that way.

    Meanwhile, SEC fans just saw Spurrier slide to #3 on the hate list behind Saint Urban and the Kiffer.

    Jimmy – I completely agree, I’m not exempting Al from any of this. He’s reasons 1-100 why we suck.

BBQ, Ball and Bets

There's nothing like a sunny fall afternoon, pork BBQ (with mustard sauce, of course!), a pregame tailgate, and...betting online. You heard me right. With a laptop and an internet connection you can check the odds of any game from the 50 yard line. Now that's convenience and will make your tailgate all the more interesting when some dude mentions just how much of a good bet a certain game is.
