This one is unbelievable....tell me this violates some sort of recruting laws..."come to tennesse and you get bitches and lamborghinis"...lol.
What is the %&$^ is Lane Kiffin thinking.......again......
next time you think about throwing in a link that leads to a bunch of shirtless guys, you should remember to post it on your "alternative lifestyle" page. I think you mixed this site up with something quite different. Thanks for adding to the list of things I never want to see.
No words. Seriously. That man is 51 cards short of a full deck.
It's stupid, but I'm pretty sure a team picture doesn't count as a recruiting violation, no matter how awesome a car they have in it.
I'd think that would actually dissuade potential recruits from coming to Tennessee...
Unless, they are trying to corner the market on the gay recruits?! Oh....2 snaps.
I don't know if it would dissuade recruits from wanting to attend UT, but it will probably dissuade a lot of parents and coaches.
That's not necessarily a recruiting violation, but it is homoerotic like whoa
If anyone ever says football is gay from now on, I'll just tell them, "Maybe, but not as gay as football recruiting and marketing."
Perhaps all 85 players just happened to have their pants undone as part of a "Team Building" exercise?
Tennessee has gone beyond ridiculous. If Tennessee has success this year after all of Kiffin's antics as well as things like this, what does that mean? Will it continue or will they tone it down? And if they have continued success, accompanied by more antics, will other programs start to follow? I just hope a deleterious trend is not starting here in my beloved sport (thus taking on an NFL flavor). I really hope Tennessee gets put in their place this year.
I bet if Lane has a losing season this year, he gets the ax. I'm willing to bet that there is no one more frustrated and embarrassed with Kiffin's crap than Tennessee's AD.
Kiffin's antics are the worst I have ever seen by a college football coach. He makes Nick Saban look like an upstanding citizen. How in the fuck can a university sell this guy as a role model and a person parents should entrust their kids to the next four or five years?
The Tennessee people I have known over the years do "us vs. the world" or "The War of Northern Aggression" great, but they aren't stupid. I can't imagine the higher-ups at the University being happy with Kiffin right now.
If he wins, they will probably put up with him. If he loses, I agree that he is out on his ass.
b/c I think it has been common sense with respectful Universities that would not be acceptable. However, imagine having photos and billboards with team photos like that and chicks in bikinis, throwing money in the air, sports cars....on some 16 or 17 year old. Seriosuly the rules are ridiculous as it is....I dont see why this would be acceptable.
they should do a really lame rap like the '85 Bears just to put the icing on the cake.
If you ever disgrace the name of the Super Bowl Shuffle again the Fridge is going to come for you.
I would -1 you, but I'm not that kind of guy.
Berry commin’ at ya!
Scarry commin’ at ya!
He’s the numba one safety and the
Heisman he can captcha!
Rocky Top’s the place,
Where I can race
My burnt orange Lamborghini
So fast you ain’t even seen me
Till I’m right up in yo face!
Meyah put the fiyah
In Coach Kiffin’s eyes.
So he’ll commit some violations
With his eyes upon the prize!
I hear them say,
“You a school embarrassment!”
Say what? Say what?
“Your coach a fool, that’s paramount!”
Say what? Say what?
School want my little brothah!
They don’t want no othah!
So I’ll hang out with no shirt!
Look like a gay flirt!
Then I will be flyin’!
It’s okay, it’s okay
Then I will be skyin!
It’s okay, it’s okay
When I got my Heisman!
this is too funny
OWW MY EARS
Did someone in the video actually say that? It was too gay to watch.
Not surprised. Thought this video was pretty funny too.
Unreal and too gay.
If Kiffen keeps this stuff up, he will sink that program!!!
The more and more stuff like this comes out, the more and more I think Al Davis may have been on to something when he fired him. All of his outrageous claims seem much more believable, although this does not in any way make Al Davis any less of a crazy, cantankerous bastard.
I've been thinking the same thing. I just thought he was a nice guy who got hosed...he sounded like a humble and sincere man in the interviews he did after the being fired. Now I think he might be a sociopath.
What is up with Eric Berry and the chain?
This is why I don't give a shit about the Heisman trophy.
I've decided that I like Lane Kiffin being their coach.
Did you ever take the words out of my mouth! I kinda hope UT has a good season so they don't fire him right away. Obviously, Kiffin is going to keep making poor decisions and saying dumb things. The longer he's there the better.
win a national title and a heisman in the same year. Make the biggest play in the biggest game in the biggest rivalry. Than call me. He is really good, but geez the hype machine gets going and all of the sudden he is the greatest thing since slice bread. I mean he is not even the best safty (Taylor Mayes) in his class.
Charles Woodson didn't have to take his shirt off and do a homoerotic photoshoot with an exotic car.
It's all politics now, man. And as we all know, politics is gay.
Someone get Zoltan and a Spaceship right now! Talk about a photo shoot!
That's gold Jerry! Gold!
Do you think he needs the chain to complete the ensemble?
Actually this has been a tradition for at least the last ten years. Every year after summer workouts, they make a poster showing off how cut the players are and send it to high schools promoting being in shape. The orange Lambo is new though.
regardless, this is my reaction:
Living in the state of Tennessee, I knew there was something "Funny" about Knoxville. I have just sent a mass E-mail to all the Tennessee fans I know, which is a lot. Can't wait to hear their excuse for this. Since there ALWAYS is an excuse.
Please share some of their rationalizations with us.
" Don't be jealous we have a Heisman Candidate to promote and Michigan doesn't" Response : Our DB won the heisman, with his shirt on!!
" That's not as gay as Appi State sticking ya'll in the ass"
response: Yeah, getting stuck in the ass by Wyoming is better.
" Michigan fans have nothing better to do than look for shirtless Vols" Response : No, we enjoyed the embarasment your new coach brings to your program
" Don't you wish you had our Strength coach, those boys are ripped!" Response: I guess you enjoyed the video too much.
More to come I'm sure. These fans down here are one of kind!!
you should devote an entire thread to stories about how they rationalize things. That would be epic awesome!
a person to jump out and tell me I am on candid camera. Kind of weird.****looks around*****
If we think this is funny, can you imagine what other SEC fan bases are doing with this? This must be pure 100% gold to Gator fans, Georgia fans, etc. If Sparty had done this I would have laughed so hard I might have injured myself.
Somewhere in Oakland, a semi-coherent, rich old man in a black and silver jogging suit is laughing.
Its almost to gay to be locker room bulletin board material. Imagine a bunch of these photos posted around......ACKWARD....
Maybe somebody can slip this video to Dantonio and convince him it's the hottest recruiting tool going in the SEC...then we can sit back and have our fun.
Lane Kiffin's badonkadonk distances the descending church, but why can't every starting alert solo after each chestnut? This coincidence celebrates the vicious tax, while each homosexual scarfs Lane Kiffin's badonkadonk. Lane Kiffin's badonkadonk degenerates over the syndrome.
You're starting to piss me off with this stuff. Stop it.
This schtick would be better if you got all Alan Sokal with it and created an algorithm that could produce passable "$uckeyes LOL" posts through random combinations of words and phrases.
I'm convinced that these are all just Mad Libs. Bad ones. Otherwise, I have no idea how someone could spew this stuff out.
only concerned if a UT player got paid or laid as a result of the development of this video.
Uh, wow. Kiffin is one odd duck. What is wrong with that guy?
I used to believe Kiffin in the Raiders fiasco, but now I am definitely on Davis' side. To me, Kiffin is a nightmare.
I just opened the link and my boss was right behind me.
Note to self: 'Don't open links with half-naked football college guys around a orange Lambo at work anymore.'
IMO this violates everything I love about college football. Granted, it's become much more of a business and that's understandable, but this shit, probably because pictures can make more of an impact than words, is inexcusable. To, as someone above said, go the NFL route, is despicable--I can see Kiffin and whatever other dumbshit that thought this up thinking "we can relate to the kids"-- and condescending in the extreme. It panders to all the worst instincts of kids and emphasizes precisely the opposite of what makes a program and a team successful. I swear to God if this ever happened in our program I would stop following M football.
That's not going to be good for anybody.
Sweet fancy Moses.
Where are you? He would be the cherry on top of this shirtless sundae.
One of Coach O's high points as the Ole Miss coach was taking off his shirt during one of the very first team meetings and challenging players to take him on. Since Kiffin would have known Coach O from their USC days, no doubt he thought taking off shirts is the way to success. Take a look at the TV ad for Hummers that Orgeron did—he sounds like he's taken a few too many blows to the head. Seriously, he sounds brain-damaged. He's got a tremendous record as a DL coach and recruiter, but how he does it is a mystery to me. He obviously was in way over his head as HC at Ole Miss.
Orgeron and Kiffin will be able to recruit the meathead kind of athlete that regards posing on a Lambo as the epitome of the college experience, but winning SEC championships is an entirely different matter. If I were a Tennessee fan with a brain, I'd be more than a little concerned about the direction the team is taking. It's pretty bad when Kiffin makes Phat Phil look like Lloyd Carr.
that the picture makes me think of steak?
Its just a shame that Kiffin is taking this program in this direction. We will see what kind of year they have. I know Florida is going to try to put up 100 against them in the swamp.
changes to the M tradition! This is f'ing embarrassing...good luck Lanie...
There's attention to your program and then there's attention...
Can't believe Lane himself isn't spread-eagled in the drivers seat...
He is crying for more attention than a stripper with a step dad.
This is hilarious, and has no place here, but for some reason it fits.
