I don’t know that there are any Vanderbilt sports fans that aren’t smiling tonight. None of our teams (not even Women’s Bowling) was active to earn us a smiling victory. No, for us, Florida fans, Alabama fans, Kentackalacky fans, Georgia fans and South Cackalacky fans it was the news out of Knoxville and Los Angeles. The University of Southern California (U$C) had decided to replace the departed Pete Carroll with Boy Blunder, himself.

Last week I [fake] quoted Lane Kiffin on the arrest of three of his Tennessee Vawl football players. Well, he’s come out with his own statement, pulled from the ESPN article below:
- An oxymoron, as Tennessee football players are U-Thugs, not “student athletes.” As evidence of this, I ask you to return to the Madommon article from ESPN.
- Irony, as someone who has shown zero class on or off the field claims to be expecting his players to act differently.
- Coincidence, in that no one has mentioned that Edwards and Richardson ripped off their Tennessee Football branded gear and chanted “Wild Boyz” (a la Orgeron) while committing the crime. You KNOW that happened.
- False statements, in that UcheaT has never sought ethics as a virtuous goal… so I don’t doubt for a second that Kiffin wouldn’t have kept these kids if he could have. Heck, the victims have asked that charges not be pressed because they didn’t want Nu’Keese out of the lineup, thereby throwing into doubt whether this removal was in the best interests of the team (however morally skewed those interests are).
Anyway, a shout to VandyKyle who suggests the next press release from Kiffin will be to announce the team’s new helmets for throwback jersey day:
Just noticed the Tennessean coverage of the UT Armed Robbery Arrests. Their lead article is on the arrest of Nu’Keese Richardson, Janzen Jackson and Mike Edwardsyesterday. But below, the third article listed is one cross-posted from Gannette’s GoVolsXtra website. The article? “Janzen Jackson Learns From Mistake.” I guess not, as the mistake referenced led to an administrative suspension for a week. I guess the time off allowed him the opportunity to plot his armed robbery.

At least Nu’Keese, Janzen and Mike committing armed robbery proves our program is run clean. No way they’d have to rob a gas station if we hadn’t stopped paying our players excessive sums under the table…. Though I guess we did give them the getaway car.
– Lane Kiffin, Tennessee Football Coach and Blowhard, who later noted with pride that none of his three players tweeted about the armed robbery they committed… like some criminals we know of.
