Best thing that could happen to Lane Kiffin, and to the Tennessee football program, would be for his voice box to move to Tahiti.
Kiffin's mouth is the biggest reason he's in the headlines for negative reasons, and his mouth has struck again. As for being investigated for recruiting violations, Kiffin stuck his chest out and bragged about it: "They want to know how we're able to get interest from so many great players, and sign so many great players, so I think you have a lot of people coming at us."
True. They do want to know, Lane. Because Tennessee hasn't won in years, and you haven't won (as a head coach) ever, and yet still you get blockbuster recruit after recruit. The world wants to know how you're doing it, and if you keep shooting off your mouth, the world might just take the time and effort to find out.
Kiffin comes from USC, which had the Reggie Bush scandal. Am I saying Lane Kiffin was dirty then, or is dirty now? Hell no. I have no idea how Kiffin is doing it.
But most closets have a skeleton or two, and every time Kiffin shoots off his mouth, it motivates a few more people to search for his closet. That's a fact. Can Kiffin handle the scrutiny? We'll find out. If he doesn't shut his mouth.
