Not content with picking on Urban Meyer, Lane Kiffin decided to attack Alabama Crimson Tide coach Nick Saban.
According to Chris Low of ESPN, “Kiffin also took aim at Alabama coach Nick Saban and suggested that Saban should “thank” new Tennessee assistant Lance Thompson for the Crimson Tide’s No. 2-ranked class. Thompson was one of Saban’s best recruiters at Alabama before leaving to join the Tennessee staff in January. Thompson even got into the act and assured the crowd that Saban wasn’t going to get another one of his players.”
Consider all of Thompson’s bridges burned. Can we expect more tawdry details to emerge now of Thompson’s indiscretions? No doubt. Tennessee’s staff is already a laughingstock with even Volunteer message board posters exposing the comedy that is Ed Orgeron. Thompson’s dirty laundry probably won’t add to the staff’s luster.
