Lane Kiffin may not even make it through his first season at UT...
when talking to college football fans, the point isn't seen unless you over-sell it.
But Coach Sarkisian might win Coach of the Year of Lockers 16-18 spring game performance carries through the season.
Ya know, unless the Washington Defense is really bad.
ESPN reported today that there is a 6th minor violation being investigated, another self-report. ESPN did not emphasize it like previous violations b/c they were the instigators -- they were filming a recruit in Kiffin's office & apparently that's not legit.
They opined that Kiffin is deliberately risking these since the punishment is usually being unable to further recruit or sign that player, maybe it's well worth the risk if it's a blue-chipper considering several rival teams as well as Tennessee.
The big news was the blistering vitriolic statement from his former employers the Oakland Raiders.
After calling him a "flat out liar," they went to say "He will try to destroy that university like he tried to destroy the Raiders, and will eventually clash with [women's basketball coach Pat] Summitt and [men's basketball coach Bruce] Pearl"
Pretty strong stuff, even for the Raiders. That big splash in the SEC Kiffin was trying to make keeps making ripples. He's taking long chances to win now, I'll give him that.
Never thought I would see a more arrogant coach in the SEC than Meyer or Saban, but Kiffin is breaking new ground.....
