    Thanks for the Bill Dance stuff. It’s the funniest thing I have seen in a long time. Good start to the day.

    Maybe Laner will hire Bill Dance to replace Eddie Gran… just think if the publicity.

    Reading between the lines regarding the Kiffin article…I wonder if Spurrier alerted the media (or NCAA). If so, Touche!


  5. Pretty Sure That as much as Florida Fans might be missing Charlie Strong, they might have welcomed him stealing the Offensive Coordinator.

    Global War on Lane (GWOL) Crisis of the Day (COD) Piece, “Who Ratted Lane Out?” 10 December 2009

    1000 hours, middle of nowhere on the Alabama/Florida state line

    Two bouncers hold the third back after he tried to throw Lane from the bar for ordering a Virgin Colada, a non-alcoholic drink which of course the Flora-Bama does not have either of. That’s just not what A-List celebs or D-listers like Mike Price-types drink or do when they’re at the Flora-Bama.

    Layla Two reads to Lane over the phone the latest publicity that Lane is getting because of the traveling hostess squads. Most of it is about who turned Lane in. Was it Spurrier, Richt, Meyer, Saban, Brooks, Steve Martin, Mullins, Nutt, Petrino, Chizik, The Hat, the Mayor of Pahokee, Mike Slive, Mike Hamilton, Pat Summit, Bruce Pearl, Coach O, Eddie Gran, Monte, Layla One, Layla Two, Lane’s kids, Lane’s driver, Lane’s helo pilot, the Gulfstream pilot or Al Davis? Could have been any of them as far as Lane, a bridge-burner extraordinaire, was concerned. Couldn’t have been his receptionist because he fired her pre-season for looking at him wrong just to show how bad he was. And it worked. He hasn’t had another receptionist since.

    Lane doesn’t seem to have much interest in anything regarding who turned him in on the hostess traveling squads. The only thing he wants to know is whether they spelled his name correctly and used the correct file photo of him, he thinks a shot of his right profile looks better although Layla One tells him that it really doesn’t matter which side it is because his head is pretty and round no matter which angle you look at it from. Lane also wants to make sure that the file photo used with the traveling hostess squad scandal publicity releases show him with his Spurrieresque visor on. The Times-Picayune always refers to him as Tulane and that chaps Lane. eHarmony incorrectly refers to him as single Lane.

    After Two confirms to Lane that all the media outlets did in fact spell Lane’s name correctly, Lane takes a sip of what he thinks is a Virgin Colada but somehow smells like rum 151 so Lane pushes it aside and orders ice water which of course the Flora-Bama does not have.

    After Christmas Lane has on his Blueberry that he needs to make an appearance at one practice, at least, before whatever bowl game it is the Vols are in. Lane had heard it was going to be in Atlanta and that was good because Lane runs the state of Atlanta for recruiting anyway. As usual, life is good.

    Lane knows it is because the juke box says the road goes on forever and the party never ends…

    “As good a fit as Brian Kelly…head coach…Notre Dame,…George O’Leary…hiring baseline dooms…”

    Re Chicago Tribune link to hoops Kelly has to jump through at ND to get an offer:

    “The toughest ones have nothing to do with his well-documented background working for Democratic presidential candidate Gary Hart 25 years ago or Kelly’s alleged pro-choice beliefs.”

    What? Apparently not being a pedophile or an abortionist, or both, is still not enough to get a job offer from some holy rollers around the Chicago Diocese…

    The thing about Notre Dame that is so annoying is the hypocrisy. I know guys who have played in football games against ND. To a man they say that the ND players were the dirtiest they have ever seen. One example of what they would do was to grab an opposing player by the jersey an pull him down on top of the ND player after the whistle, then start yelling about a late hit. It is amazing but that trick would work and the other team would get flagged for unnecessary roughness. The ND players would also go at people’s knees a lot. This was during the Davie regime but I have heard stories like that from years back, too. Obviously they were being coached to do stuff like that.

    Add the slut hostesses to the incident where a HS recruit was busted for smoking weed during his visit (in the company of UT players) and it is fair to say things still smell in Knoxville. This isn’t to throw stones about players making mistakes, we all have those and fortunately UGA handles those quickly and firmly. Over zealous recruiting from boosters is bad enough, but those involving university students is another level of problem.

    When you listen to the UT fans excuse this recent problem you can easily see why it occurs. The NCAA is long overdue for spanking the TN program. Fulmer was dirty but he was the SEC’s teflon man for some reason. You have to wonder if Alabama was right about a deal being cut with the Phat man. Junior is much more brazen, but still has escaped both the SEC and the NCAA….so far. I don’t know of a program, or fanbase, that has lower standards than UT when it comes to excusing obvious problems.
