Add Georgia to those unhappy with Lane Kiffin. According to the AJC Georgia’s athletic director Damon Evans said, â€œWe have a guy [Mark Richt] leading us who has a high level of integrity and weâ€™re in a place where we donâ€™t need to cheat to have success here â€¦â€
As long as he makes the trains run on time
Tennessee fans seem ready to accept some cheating if it results in wins. In a Chattanooga Times Free Press column Mark Weidmer wrote, “And if the coach breaks a few secondary rules along the way, so what?”
So what!?! Breaking rules is also known as cheating. I thought the University of Tennessee had more integrity than that. Guess not.
Kiffin hasn’t been up to the task
Ben Cook opines that Lane Kiffin hasn’t been up to the task of running a major college program. Cook wrote in the Randolph Leader, “The fact that in 10 weeks as the Vols head coach he has broken three rules and committed one major public relations gaffe has a lot of people wondering if Kiffin might be in over his head. Being the caretaker of a major college football program is a big responsibility and so far Kiffin hasn’t shown he’s up to the task. He had hired an all-star coaching staff, and that’s a good thing, but in every other way the jury is still out on him.”
