LOTD: Lane Kiffin Proves That He Has a Hot Wife, But No Clue – Then Apologizes

Video - Lane Kiffin Comments on Urban Meyer, Florida CheatingLane Kiffin has a lot going for him right now. He has one of the 10-15 best college football head coaching jobs in America at the University of Tennessee. He has one of the best defensive coordinators in the world, his dad Monte, coordinating his defense. He just brought in a top-20 recruiting class to Knoxville despite the disadvantage of only being on the job for a couple months. And, of course, he has a very attractive wife (who, apparently, the owners of this website would “do”.)

However, what Lane Kiffin does not have, apparently, is a clue.

Kiffin recently accused Florida coach Urban Meyer of cheating in his attempt to land recruit Nu’Keese Richardson, who ultimately signed with the Vols. Here is the video, if you haven’t seen it:

Kiffin claimed that Urban Meyer’s call to Richardson during the player’s campus visit to Knoxville violated NCAA rules. However, the SEC clarified that Meyer’s call did not violate any rules and Florida demanded an apology. And Kiffin did, in fact, apologize:

“I’ve been made aware by the Southeastern Conference that my comments this morning at a breakfast with our donors violated a conference policy. In my enthusiasm for our recruiting class, I made some statements that were meant solely to excite those at the breakfast.

“I apologize to Commissioner Mike Slive and the SEC, including Florida AD Jeremy Foley and coach Urban Meyer. My comments were not intended to offend anyone at the University of Florida.”

The next question is whether Kiffin will be apologizing to Tennessee fans (a group of which I consider myself a member) next season when Urban Meyer and the Gators roll up 70 points. I have to say that I think this was a pretty dumb move by Lane Kiffin. He has not won anything significant as a head coach and is the most inexperienced member of the SEC’s vaunted class of head coaches. Yet, somehow he has the temerity to call out Urban Meyer, who has won two national titles while at Florida. I appreciate Kiffin’s willingness to try and instill confidence and swagger back in Vol Nation, but this was a terrible way to do it. Maybe try beating Urban Meyer first before you run your mouth coach.

Anyway, in honor of Lane Kiffin’s douchebaggery this week, I offer you a link from The Sporting Blog that echoes my thoughts on this matter. And the reason this post won out over the many others that have been written on this topic is that I just love the headline:
