Two good stories about Junior to share today.
From the Huntsville Times, we learn that Lane has developed the ability to predict the future.
Kiffin went so far as to say at a press conference today to promote the Chick-fil-A Bowl that the NCAA would not find any violations.
“This is something that’s had a lot of national run and a lot of media,” Kiffin said in this ESPN.com story. “What I compare it to is I go back to the Bryce Brown situation right before the season. That got a lot of national media attention and a lot of SportsCenter attention that the Tennessee staff had some involvement in some illegal recruiting of Bryce Brown and that Bryce Brown did something illegal.
“There was an investigation into that and there was no wrongdoing. I look for this to be the same exact situation. In the end, when the research is done and conclusions are made, the same result will happen.”
If you’re a Tennessee fan, it’s got to be tremendously thrilling to know that Junior’s got this all under control and that the plan keeps moving forward in its inexorable fashion. So how come you’re going to the games in fewer numbers (h/t Team Speed Kills) than you were when Fulmer was the head coach?
The University of Tennessee failed to reach the six-digit mark in annual home-game football attendance last season for the first time since 1995, UT athletic director Mike Hamilton said Wednesday.
“I think our average attendance is going to be slightly under 100,000 for the first time in a while,” said Hamilton in an interview with the News Sentinel.
Seriously, how does Mike Hamilton keep a straight face these days?
