further adventures in Jed York being unsuited for his position
Thought I would start a game thread for Iowa vs. Tennessee it is now on ESPN. Taxslayer Bowl. Why not root for the BIG in this one...
During the Tennessee Mississippi game, Ole Miss intercepted a pass in the middle of the third quarter. A coach tried to trip the player. I get having passion but that is just dirty. It is bad when a player on the bench does something like that but the "leaders" should know better. Does anyone know if there is a fine or anything associated with this type of behavior?

I vowed to have a wallpaper done for ya'll for tomorrow's game and HERE IT IS! I actually made two, and while I definitely like the first one best, the second actually took me longer to put together. I just was TOO frustrated with my keyboard/mouse combo that I have yet to replace to go any further in refining it. Hope you like them. As always, constructive criticism and/or ideas for future wallpapers are welcome. BEAT THE VOLS! CHARLES WOODSON! 2014!

As we have discussed so much, Kiffin is now at Alabama. Naturally there is the shock which is starting to wear off but the Vols now have fired a shot back at the nuttiest fan base in the world.
It is that great mix of being funny and timely.
I sometimes mess up the embed so just in case here is the link.
It looks like the NCAA is kicking the University of Tennessee while they're already down. With a disgruntled fanbase and the huge rumors of Jon Gruden taking over the coaching job for Derek Dooley after seasons end that almost seem to be going no where, this is going to send their fans into a frenzy.
A former University of Tennessee assistant football coach knowingly worked with a booster to provide impermissible travel and lodging to a prospective student-athlete, according to findings by the Division I Committee on Infractions. The former coach was also cited for unethical conduct for his role in the violations.
Man, the NCAA has been busy.
Next week, USC HC Lane Kiffin comes to Indianapolis for NCAA hearing for major violations while HC at Tennessee:
The attorney, who has represented individuals and institutions against the NCAA, said Kiffin could be subject to a "show-cause" penalty if the Committee on Infractions rules against him. Former USC assistant coach Todd McNair received a one-year, show-cause penalty, prohibiting him from recruiting for that length of time. Most of the allegations made against Kiffin at Tennessee involved recruiting.Kiffin also could be suspended for a game or games.
No matter what, if any, sanctions the NCAA imposes on Kiffin, they would not directly affect USC. It would be up to the school to make sure Kiffin abides by them. But regardless of the outcome of Saturday's hearing, any compliance-related misstep would worsen USC's NCAA predicament because the school already is on probation.
AD Pat Haden will be chaperone for Kiffin on the visit to Indy.
I'd love to be sitting near those guys on the plane ride. What possibly could a USC Rhodes Scholar like Pat Haden have in common with Lane Kiffin, a BA in Leisure Management from Fresno St.?
