Kiffin watch: do you feel like I do?

You get a Junior twofer today, courtesy of Tennessee’s newest signee, punter Matt Darr.

It’s Darr’s road to Knoxville that’s interesting:  he’s from California and originally signed with Fresno State.  When the special teams coach left Fresno State to join the Laner at USC, Darr requested his release from FSU and it was granted.  However, he didn’t follow the coach to Southern Cal, but elected instead to travel many Dooley-hours and play for Tennessee.

Why, you may ask?  It’s pretty simple.

“I know you guys really don’t like Lane Kiffin; I guess I feel the same way,” said Darr, who added that USC’s recent NCAA sanctions were also a drawback to playing for USC. “It didn’t strike me as the most appealing place to be once the new staff got in there.”

I wonder if it’s the start of a trend.

    Man I hope so! Nothing would make me happier than watching that man fall flat on his a** for the next couple of years. (Well an undefeated season in Athens would)
