Isn’t this nice. A writer for the San Francisco Chronicle leaps to Junior’s defense on the “gas pumping” incident. The Laner should be believed because he’s too young to know any better:
Kiffin has, however, denied saying that he told a recruit who rejected the Vols that he “would end up pumping gas for the rest of his life like all of the other players” who stayed in South Carolina to play ball.
We have to believe Kiffin on this. He’s only 33; he can’t possibly remember the era of full-service gas stations…
Um… the kid who accused Kiffin of making the statement is about half Junior’s age. Wouldn’t the same defense apply to him, in spades?
By the way, is this the point where I should mention that there are two full service gas stations operating a mile from my house?
On another front, I’m surprised this has taken so long. What have you guys been waiting for?
