Where was Lane Kiffen when I was in high school...?

The University of Tennessee is currently under investigation by the NCAA for alleged illegal recruiting violations i.e. sending "hostesses" on the road to visit recruits at their high school football games, according to ESPN.  Solid, solid work, Kiffen.  Nothing like a bit of institutionalized prostitution to push that recruit toward a commitment.  We all know things like this go on DURING CAMPUS VISITS.  Recruits get 5 official campus visits.  Why do you think they take them all?  "Umm, I's like the hot blond in the six inch heels with the 'do me how you like' look on her face, Coach".  But taking it on the road shows real moxy & that "go get 'em" attitude we love so much.  From the above linked ESPN article:
"Two of Lattimore's high school teammates, Brandon Willis and Corey Miller have orally committed to Tennessee (nice work, fellas, just remember proper hygeine).  Lattimore said the hostesses were 'real pretty, real nice, and just real cool' (translation: smokin' hot, willing to do anything in the sack, or behind the bleachers, in this case, & "damn, high school girls don't kick it like that") and thinks they had 'a lot' (hot girl-on-girl action?)of  influence in his teammates making oral commitments (again fellas, way to make sure her needs are taken care of...), according to the report."
One even more disastrous note is the ripple effect of this investigation.  We're positive that Pat Summitt uses the same tactics in recruiting for her uber-successful women's basketball program.  Hard times up in Knoxville......and other places throughout the Southland where Tennessee is recruiting....

  1. While I can appreciate the attention Kiffin brings to his program, his methods may be the beginning of the end for SEC dominance. A normal and reasonable train of progression leads to the eventual investigation, exposure and punishment of the vast majority of football factories in the South East. We've heard about it as echos in the media for the past couple years. As for Tech, we've been very fortunate to keep our program squeaky clean for the past decade or so. We could now reap the benefits.
