The fired Tennessee coach may have lost his job, but he hasn't lost his sense of humor.
In case you missed it, here is my appearance on ESPNU's "UNITE" with Clay Travis from Thursday night. Go 'Dawgs!
In the great debate between the Georgia Bulldogs and the South Carolina Gamecocks, who better to represent the Red and Black than SB Nation's Dawg Sports? The debate airs on ESPNU at midnight tonight!
We're joined by two of the leading media & online voices on the Vols: beat writer Wes Rucker and author Clay Travis. We'll discuss all things Tennessee leading into gameweek and NC State.
Waaaait, so @ClayTravisBGID and @dawgsports are both taking their ladies to Vegas this weekend? You guys call each other? #twinsies #baww
Clay Travis had a Roast for himself. The guys over at http://friendsoftheprogram.net/ made a list of jokes (with the help of Rick Muscles) for the event. If all them weren't used, it's criminal. 10 internet points to the first person who calls The Roundtable in Birmingham on Monday and tells one of these jokes after Mr. Travis' weekly segment.
For some of the jokes that may or may not have made it into the roast, please head over to http://friendsoftheprogram.net/ and give those guys (and Squatland Yard's own Rick Muscles) their due.
I am not thrilled to link to him but Clay Travis makes some interesting observations on Yahoo!'s meteoric rise... With yesterday's announcement that Yahoo is rebranding Sporting News radio and...
This story looks into the Auburn-Alabama rivalry and how it has escalated into a full-on war between the two programs.
In leaving, Kiffin said over and over that he'd been at Tennessee for 14 months.
Kiffin was offered the job on November 28, 2008, the Friday before the Kentucky game, but he wasn't introduced until November 30th.
So he's officially been at Tennessee for 1 year and 13 days. (Evidently I missed a month in my calculations here, he's been at Tennessee for 13 months. This is why I took a course called Mathematical Ideas in college. One of our exam questions involved coming up with an imaginary formula to count how many squares there were on a soccer ball. Also, we had to answer an essay question about whether we liked addition or subtraction better. I am not making this up.)
Even giving him 13 months is rounding up.
But I love that he chose to go with 14 months instead of just saying a year, as if 14 months is a commitment and one year is much less so.
