‘Coach, they’re not going to do anything to you. It’s your son they’re after.’

According to Eric Berry, Monte Kiffin was so worried about his personal safety after Junior bailed on Tennessee that he wouldn’t leave his office until all the fires that had been set on campus were put out.

    So he left his dad there to suffer when he bailed.

    I can’t read the article, but that just sounds like good sense to me. Monte is a bit old school. If some drunk sophomore jumped in his face, Monte might have to beat his ass. What good would that do anyone?

    Well it makes sense that Lane got through Monte’s Tampa Two.

    A tight end running a route straight down the middle is that D’s biggest flaw.

    Off topic but the SEC money grab has reached a new level.


    Safety, my ass. Greed takes another step in its destruction of the college football experience.

      The SEC should fine them.

      Now they have more time during the half for piped-in loud music and commercials.


    • Shame on you, LSU, and, especially, Joe Alleva

        Shame?? More like genius. Anything that diminishes visitors presence in the stadium is a good move!

        • College bands are part of what makes the college game better than the NFL. I’m sure you’ll be glad when the Redcoats don’t get to go to Atlanta, Auburn, Columbia, Knoxville or Tuscaloosa.

            Silly me. I just want every advantage to win, but you can have your bands as long as that is what is important to you. And yes I could care less about the full band being at an away game. Once again I just want to win, but we all have what is important to us. Enjoy your band performance and I will enjoy the win.

    Off topic #2: Get a load of the twisted reversal to Title IX due process that seems to have victimized Jeremy Faulk as more info surfaces at Baylor. Grobe seems to have become the “Eraser” for Baylor and is kicking out transfers without considering their input, plus no evidence to press any charges.

    Baylor players are gittin’ gone for the gittin’ they got even though they haven’t appeared before anyone to give their side of the gittin’. Almost like the women and their rights under TitleIX.

    When you are in the middle of a purge, there is only the Fiddler on the Baylor Roof between you and a pogrom.

      Can’t find it but seem to recall Stalin or Lenin’s remark about the innocent getting caught up in a purge “they’re the ones that really deserve it”
