Photo of Kiffin, Tomlin and brother-in-law.
This is photo seriously supposed to be scandalous?
HE'S SITTING NEXT TO AN OPEN WINDOW! HE COULD HAVE FALLEN OUT! SOMEONE THINK OF THE IMPRESSIONABLE CHILDREN!
Also: I hardly doubt Kiffin's wife would be stoked about him hanging out with co-eds at a party. Hell, MY wife wouldn't really appreciate it sooooo if he's figured out a way to trick the world into believing his coaching superiority AND tricked his wife to be okay with this, I'm calling witchcraft.
Again, there's nothing suggesting they're students. The women could be related to Kiffin for all we know.
Maybe it's just me but doesn't it look like Tomlin is standing outside?
Sneaking in through the window to avoid the cover charge must have been Kiffins idea.
I wouldn't call it scandalous but if that blonde isn't his wife and is a coed she looks pretty comfortable with her friends. Not exactly the image Lane and USC need right now.
For all we know that's Tomlin's girlfriend and her sister. There's nothing that suggests they're students or that either was romantically involved with Kiffin.
It's possible that the one nearest Tomlin is his wife, but it's not really possible to tell from that picture (i.e. from behind).
Did you do that with MS Paint? You're getting seriously good.
and be the one to "console" Lane's wife.
Like Kiffin will fit right in at USC.
Thank you, Germany, for coming up with the word Scha...uhh, schaden....the joy one receives from the suffering of others.
No better wingman than a brother-in-law
It just never ends with Kiffin. How he is still employed and looked upon positively by some circles I don't understand, but I have a feeling we're all going to look back at this time period in college football and ask, "What were you thinking??"
This just keeps getting better and better.
I nominate USC as winner of the off-season Tears of Unfathomable Sadness award.
from the hit television series House, and not Tomlin. I mean, if it's Tomlin, where is his goretex Steelers jacket?
on the bedroom floor
He can't seem to stop himself from screwing up more and more. Yet he always comes out smelling like roses. Hopefully stories like this, if true, gain steam with the mainstream news media and end up biting him.
If TMZ does run with this I am sure it will end up on ESPN.
That's actually kind of scary. If you get a little famous, do they permanently employ someone to tail you with a camera?
This is nothing more than Kiffin holding auditions to be a Tennessee Ho-stess. I don't see who in their right mind would hire this guy (except USC).
"Ho-stess." Although, in the absense of further evidence, it is defamatory.
That the couch in Lane's office doubled as a "casting couch" for hostesses.
First of all there's nothing concrete in that link. Secondly I don't see why Lane Kiffin's personal life should be subjected to our scrutiny. The fact that all this is mostly unconfirmed innuendo makes its publishing even more irresponsible.
I agree, about almost anyone.
Why do we need to know if somebody has been cheating on their wife, if they're not a public official? Take Woods. If you're not Woods or his wife, what the heck should you have to say about it?
At the risk of straying into verboten political discourse, I have to ask if you're implying we should care about the personal indiscretions of public officials but not other public figures?
At Tenn, he was probably the highest paid (with tax and tuition $) state employee. As a football coach at a crazed football school who makes millions, you better believe his personal life is and should be scrutinized by all of the fans, students, employees, and residents of Tennessee.
As college football fans, if he broke the rules (as the TMZ article suggests) then he should be held responsible.
This is a dirty coach going to a dirty football program and they are going down!
What are you talking about? There is no TMZ article. I understand there's some level of scrutiny to be expected, but that shouldn't rise to the level of "OMG Lane Kiffin talking to a woman and that's it at a bar"= NEWS.
EDIT: Nevermind, Magnus pretty much said it already
A match made in Heaven.
When a parent is choosing to send his/her son off to college, he/she should be aware of how that coach behaves in his personal and public life. If he were CEO of a private company, I might agree. But he's a football coach and role model for hundreds and, eventually, thousands of young men. If he's cheating on his wife and/or driving drunk and/or not taking responsibility for crashing a rental car, then I'd say that information deserves to be divulged.
This is even moreso for public institutions, but USC is a private school.
I didn't read the article, so I don't know if it mentions whether Tomlin is married or not. Even if he is, that's a slightly different story, since he works with his players and coaches on a professional level.
Even if I were to grant that parents of recruits have a right to know this stuff and that somehow translates into it being a bonafide OMG NEWS story for mass consumption, there's no cited proof that the story is true. All they have is a picture of Kiffin sitting across a table from two women at a bar. They have no quotes, anonymous or otherwise. It's incredibly irresponsible journalism.
Magnus, Tomlin is married to Kiya Winston.
Screw it. Not worth it...
Understand your irritation, but you will never win points with a post starting "What is wrong with you people?" (I did a YouTube search and came up empty looking for that line from the movie Office Space.) Unless it feels really good, it doesn't pay to answer a neg in anger.
Yeah, you're totally right. It really is frustrating sometimes though, especially when you post something that couldn't possibly, under any circumstances, warrant a negative reaction from anyone. I really don't like the whole "neg" thing in general because it really just personifies anonymous cowardice. If you don't like what someone had to say, dispute it with a contrary argument. But yes, you're definitely right.
To an EXTENT (IE: Do they drink heavily or do drugs), but how does who the guy meets at a bar for beers affect their kid?
this story has caused me to lose tremendous respect for Mike Tomlin.
Flying to Tennessee to hang with Lane. C'mon, Mike, you're better than that.
Turns out, he flew there on sheer willpower.
Like I said, I didn't read the article. I'm not jumping to conclusions that Kiffin is guilty of anything. What I am saying is that if these allegations are true, they should be publicized.
Had I known about this Saturday night I would have asked he and his wife for comment.......
WE ain't gonna let no Yankee come down here and insult our peoples,insult our players,insult our great state...no sir,no way
This is not the usual high quality Lane Kiffen post I've come to love and adore. But, like the last foamy beer out of the keg, I'll take it and like it.
Sports by Brooks(not the greatest source but better than this link) had a post either yesterday or the day before and he confirmed that the blonde in the photo sitting across from Kiffin was his wife.
Let's let the Lane Kiffin media storm fizzle out...I don't care anymore.
This still leaves the car. But for TMZ, looks like a bad choice for a lede.
From link above:
But not accounted for is the mystery "woman" with the dark hair. Word is that she is either a tranny hooker or Osama Bin Laden in drag.
Don't be so quick to dismiss the mudslinging.
This is trashy.
It is but I'll add to it.
I heard that Kiffin was an unwarranted court rusher in college.
As mentioned by Toledo, it's been debunked. But even if it wasn't, this is quite acceptable behavior at UT. Bruce Pearl has been linked with coeds on many occasions. There have even been published pictures of him at spring break partying with them.
As if I don't have enough to worry about with my daughter. By the time she's in college this stuff won't even be hidden anymore.
The second story sounds more scandalous. Especially if he wrecked the car because his wife was chasing him with a golf club.
or a headset and clipboard.
tomlin is my hero.
Now isn't the whole college football world glad that USC is giving Kiffin enough rope to hang himself with? This guy will be the butt of every joke in a couple of years.
Millionaire has sex with woman, film at 11.
you got your wish....
