- Lane Kiffin has called the hiring of Kippy Brown as the Vols' receivers coach and passing game coordinator not just a home run but a grand slam. Brown was Kiffin's Red Ryder BB Gun this Christmas, and he got just what he wanted. I loved Frank Wilson, but this has to be considered an upgrade. The only concern is recruiting -- due to Brown coming from the NFL -- but he's done it before and done it well. During an earlier stint at Tennessee, Brown coached Tim McGee, Alvin Harper, and one Carl Pickens, and those three gave UT the nickname "Wide Receiver U." ($?) Harper says that he learned more at UT than he learned in the pros, all because of Kippy. Welcome home, coach Brown.
- Huh. So how many secondary violations does Georgia have over the past year? Six? Really? Why haven't we heard about this until now? I thought the "New York Times" (I suggest all Tennessee fans use the quotes when referring to them -- they're no longer who they claim to be) cared about this stuff. Or do they just like to imply that college girls are prostitutes to sell papers and lure traffic? Huh. (HT: 3SiB.)
