If you’re a Vol football fan, this past week has seen the continuation of the Bataan Death March of bad news as far as it concerns Junior’s impact on the program he bailed on. In response, you can either howl like a banshee, or you can resort to my preferred approach: gallows humor.
Joel at Rocky Top Talk shows us how it’s done:
Yeah, so first Lane Kiffin and Ed Orgeron tried to swipe our mid-term enrollees and haul them off to USC. Then they took some of the coaches they forgot to invite to the party the first time around, including one who had to leave in the middle of the night without telling anyone. Yesterday, they took Joe Barry, a candidate for our open defensive coordinator position and convinced UT commitment Eddrick Loften to take a late visit to Southern Cal. I may have forgotten some. See? This is why you videotape every room in your house, so you have something to show the insurance adjusters.
At least it’s only a few more days ’til National Signing Day.

Uh, hey, Joel, don’t forget that little NCAA investigation thingy that those cheeky little rascals left behind.
It’s happening. You need to come to peace with it.
They’ll likely only get a stern warning for that.
The thing is, once those folks have decided that they are coming to your cit-ay, they ain’t leaving until they look under every rock. There might be some smelly stuff under the rock.
UT is going to try to convince the NCAA that due to all the damage Kiffin caused the program he qualified them for self-imposed penalties. The guy hurt them more than NCAA probation.
Ouch. You’re right though. What a strange fence between hubris and whistling past the graveyard they were straddling; and then getting left at the altar for the sexy and catty ex-girlfriend… hoo, boy. You almost feel sorry for them… almost.
I love this quote from bacarri rambo about this years secondary vs last years from today’s ABH: “I think we’re going to do good this year,” Rambo said. “We’re very young. We’ve got a lot of talent right there. As matter of fact, I think we’ve got more talent this year than we had last year.”
Whoops, I think the cat is loose on how he felt losing playing time to #3 Evans.
Boykin is a little more PC about it….
