Thursday morning buffet

Here you go.

  • Is anyone fluent enough in Miles-ese to translate this quote “He’s all at wide receiver and in his mind,” Miles said during a pre-spring practice briefing with reporters in the football facility. ‘Cause I don’t have a clue.
  • Leave it to Mike Hamilton to make Junior sound reasonable.  Kiffin had this to say in response to Hamilton’s observation that the Laner wasn’t a “good cultural fit” in Knoxville:  “I don’t really know exactly what that means,” said Kiffin, who was UT’s coach for just 14 months. “I don’t think at the end of day that has anything to do with whether you score points or whether you win games. Where you’re from? I don’t know. That’s just my opinion.”
  • The Tuberville-ization of Texas Tech continues apace.  “The one thing you have to have to be successful and to win championships is you have to play good defensive line,” the new Tech coach said. “That doesn’t mean you have to have great players.” Get pumped, Red Raider fans!
  • Kodi Burns, fish out of water.
  • It’s a long way down for Rob Spence these days.
  • Man, Georgia’s not the only program cracking down on players for minor traffic violations.  Thanks, Dad.
  • Arkansas had a losing conference record last season, and that can only mean one thing:  raise ticket prices!

    Nevada coach Chris Ault placed Johnson on one-year probation, consistent with his handling of players who are arrested for misdemeanors.

    Wonder if they drive scooters though … freekin menace to society is what those debil rides are.

    I’m with Hamilton on this one. Just look at RichRod in Michigan to see how cultural fit is an element of coaching in NCAA DivI.

    BTW: Your poking fun at Tuberville’s approach to his new post at (previously) anything-goes-on-offense Texas Tech just highlights that ‘cultural fit’ matters.

    It’s an infinite loop of idiocy between Hamilton and Kiffin. One, Hamilton is either rationalizing being dumped or he’s speaking in code. If Kiffin stayed put, I’m sure there would be no utterances of cultural fit, no matter how many of Neyland’s maxims Kiffin rewrote. Of course, what Hamilton may have meant by “not a cultural fit” was “lacks the ethical scruples of a tapeworm,” but that merely points the finger back at the genius behind the hire.

    Regardless, of course Kiffin has no idea what any of this means and he’s not about to strain his brain trying. As Michael Cain said in Dirty Rotten Scoundrels, “Know your limitations: You are immoral.”

    Kodi Burns is not the only college player to be shuffled out of a career. Our coaches have done a yeoman’s job of it on several players.

    Tommy Tuberville has found a home. I expect a good team out of Texas Tech next season and a legit Big 12 Championship contender in Lubbock within 3 years. Settle your case Leach. You have been out-maneuvered. Soon everyone in Lubbock will be glad you are gone and the longer your case drags on the worse your chances become before a Lubbock jury. It’s not fair but who said life is fair.
