Kiffin watch: coming soon to a neighborhood near you.

Don’t say you haven’t been warned.

Lane Kiffin will embark on a Big Orange Caravan tour of the Southeast early next week.

The first dinner stop is in Atlanta, on the 20th of this month.  Don’t tell me there won’t be a few flacks from the UT Athletic Department holding their breaths when Junior gets up to speak.

I just hope he lives up to expectations.


UPDATE: By the way, in the interest of accuracy, I should note it turns out that Junior’s second phone call to Alshon Jeffery wasn’t a secondary violation, but rather, in the words of UT’s director of public relations (now there’s a nice gig if you can get it), a “national letter of intent infraction” (h/t Capstone Report).  The best part of the story is that an assistant Tennessee SID confirmed the NCAA violation to The State newspaper.  That guy may be looking for a gas station job in the near future, I fear.

Saturday morning question

Can somebody explain to me what all the fuss over Greg Paulus is about?


UPDATE: Chris Brown looks at it from Paulus’ point of view.

The light bulb goes on.

The New York Times discovers the link between the new SEC TV contracts and the rising salaries of assistant coaches in the conference.

Good work, fellas.
