I really don’t get Phil Fulmer’s crusade against Junior – not that he’s engaged in it, of course, since it’s clearly meant to obscure his own contribution to Tennessee’s current fall from grace, but that he actually expects people to buy into it.
Judging from comments like this, he’s got more work to do.
… We’re not alone. A lot of you sent me email this weekend to alert me to a story that proves we are collectively making a difference. Former Tennessee head coach (shown below looking like he’s sustained a head injury) was quoted by CBS Sports saying the following:
Tennessee is a very proud program as we all know with great traditions and the people of Tennessee felt betrayed to be honest with you. They were embarrassed, felt jilted with all the cost of the change there was. Kiffin, he left Tennessee with basically his hat in his hand and a bunch of NCAA compliance questions.
Many in our community are glad that he is gone. He never really embraced the traditions, the values of the program or the community for that matter. And often his arrogant attitude turned people off. The bigger question in my opinion is how does a guy like this end up with two jobs with historic football teams like Tennessee and USC.”
You may remember Phil Fulmer from his 5-7 season which lead UT to hire Lane Kiffin in an attempt to help the school have a less fat head coach. Fulmer is also the only college coach to have not won a national champion while having Peyton Fucking Manning on his team…
