“It was modest of him to say.”

Mike Leach responds to Junior’s praise of him on ESPN GameDay.

Yeah, Thursday’s gonna be fun.

Today, in be careful what you wish for, Gators

Oh, man… the recruiting narrative continues ($$).

Some people think he’s a great recruiter, and I really don’t. I don’t think he gives a shit about it, to be 100 percent honest. That’s why it wouldn’t surprise me if he left this year.

It’s amazing the way people keep dumping on Dan Mullen.

Except that comment wasn’t about Mullen.  It was about the coach seemingly half the Florida fan base has already anointed as their savior, Lane Kiffin.  And it was said by somebody who should have a clue, a Mississippi high school coach.

Wait… there’s more!

… I don’t think Lane Kiffin cares to recruit Mississippi. That’s just me. To be honest … I don’t think Lane cares enough about recruiting to want to have to fight the battle for the kid. He’d rather show up, be Ole Miss and win it.

The general consensus in the piece from the coaches they spoke with was that Mullen did a better job recruiting in state than Junior’s doing.  Ironic, ain’t it?

Junior, embarrassed?

Inconceivable!

Okay, maybe not.

“I have no affiliation with the Ole Miss football Twitter site, even though it may sound strange, and I first learned about the tweets after my press conference when Keith Carter told me about them,” Kiffin told ESPN. “I’m completely embarrassed that anyone would put something out there like that making it look like it was a part of Ole Miss football. It was extremely disrespectful, bush league and classless, and I apologize, even though I had nothing to do with it, to Liberty and Hugh Freeze.”

Although I can’t help but wonder if deep down in places the Laner doesn’t talk about at parties, he gave a silent thumbs up.

By the way, it wasn’t that it was just making it look like it was a part of Ole Miss football, dude.  It came from Ole Miss football’s Twitter account.

And then he goes and spoils it all…

This is equally painful and amusing.

That worked out well.

The Laner shows his ass.

Shot.

Chaser.

I don’t blame him for going for it on fourth down the way he did.  Ole Miss wasn’t going to beat ‘Bama with punts and field goals.  It’s the misplaced braggadocio that makes Junior a clown.

“Deez nutz are a process.”

I just…

I don’t know what gets me more — that someone could compose, in all due seriousness, a sentence like “Lane Kiffin adds some valuable insight on Saban’s “deez nutz” jokes” or that of course Junior could provide valuable insight.  What a time to be alive, eh?

“So he said, ‘I think I want to go to the fan portal.’”

I hope you’ve got a subscription to The Athletic, because this story ($$), about a nine-year old Tennessee fan who’d had enough of the Vols and decided to change allegiances, is fucking hilarious.

The gist of it is that he, with the help of his father, decided to write four SEC head coaches (Orgeron, Saban, Kiffin and Heupel) in the hopes that one of them would recruit him to support their program.  Here’s a sample:

Saban responded.  So did Coach O.  Amazingly, Tennessee didn’t.

But Junior was the winner.

And then, the phone call came.

“I got a message that said, ‘Coach Kiffin would like to recruit Landon. Is he available for a phone call?’” Justin said. “I thought maybe it was going to be an assistant or somebody saying they’d send us a shirt or a hat or something like that.”

But not long after, Kiffin was on the phone.

“Landon answered the phone and it was Coach Kiffin on the other end,” Justin said. “It was shocking to both of us.”

Read the whole thing, if you can.  It’s a hoot.
