You Want More Kiffin? Okay

Like him, hate him, root for him, can’t understand him… you’ve got to admit that Lane Kiffin somehow manages to keep his name in the news.

Kelly Whiteside of USA Today is the latest to profile the young coach in a rather long piece posted just this morning.

From the fact that he’s ticked off half of the SEC to his own “a lot of that stuff helped us recruit a Top 10 class” explanation, everything Kiffin is covered in this piece.

Even the Vols’ play-by-play man Bob Kesling gives his two cents:

“A lot of Tennessee fans are saying, who knows who the coach is at Auburn or Mississippi State?  But everyone knows who Lane Kiffin is, and that’s a big advantage.  I don’t know how calculated it was, but I know that Lane wanted to make a splash.”

At a recent Big Orange Caravan stop in Jacksonville, a UT fan thanked Kiffin for helping newspaper sales in Florida.

“That’s how you get freshman and sophomores to start falling in love with you,” Kiffin said.  “It is a business.  I know at times you get a little nervous saying, my God, I can’t believe he really just said that.  Then we sign the #1 player in the country, and no one is saying that any more.”

So any pub is good pub, huh?  Just imagine how many recruits Kiffin will land when he finally goes all-in and knocks over a liquor store?
