BHB Loves Lane Kiffin

I have wrote about Lane Kiffin at Tennessee a number of times already. He seems like a walking recruiting violation and has called "out" about every program in the SEC after just only being on the job for about 3 1/2 months.

We all remember Steve Spurrier's classic line when he was at Florida: "you can't spell Citrus (Bowl) without a U and a T". Well that U and a T now has a guy that go head to head with "the old ball coach" and spit out is own lendgardy one liners during a late night signing day eve recruiting call with soon to be South Carolina commit Alshon Jeffrey. According to Jeffrey and Wilson, Kiffin told Jeffrey that if he chose the Gamecocks, he would end up pumping gas for the rest of his life like all the other players from that state who had gone to South Carolina.

Lane, thank you for making a boring off season, not so boring.

Wolverine News and Notes:
  • Manny Harris was named to the first team All Big Ten. Sims was named to the second team.

  • There are "rumblings" from some leading recruiting sites that Ohio WR DJ Williamson could be on the verge of committing to the Wolverines after Friday's Junior Day. DJ is 6"1 172 pounds and runs a 4.4 in the 40. DJ plays his high school football at Warren Harding. DJ would be Michigan's 4th WR commit to the 2010 class. RR didn't have a comment on whether Michigan was planning on starting 10 WR's on offense in 2011.

  • Cory Zirbel's knee won't allow him to play football any longer. Cory was expected to be a starter last year on the offensive line when his knee started bothering him in summer workouts, during surgery a rare knee condition called femoral condyle defect was found. Cory will help the team has a coach.
