    What has Lane Kiffin actually done? Overrated.

    God he is a tool. Does he know what the hell the term "contract" means?

    I supported him with the Oakland situation, but his behavior at Tennessee was pathetic.

    After just one year at Tennessee? C'mon man, that's ridiculous.

    Also, isn't Tennessee already under review under Kiffin? And USC hires him to run their program when they're already under review?

    Dumping a major football program after only one season is not going to help him on the recruiting trail at his new job.

    They need someone who will look the other way with superstar rule breakers. Shades of Sampson to IU while OU was under the microscope.

    Wow.

    I just saw it on the crawl on NFLN.

    I don't know what to say. I did not expect this at all. Why would you even offer it to this guy?

    WOW, this I never expected. Just when I thought that Kiffin was a Volunteer for a few more years to come, he made it seem like he had strong feelings about turning the program around...

    I have lost ALL rescept for him. I feel for the Tenneessee fans and hopefully they can get someone better.

    This guy was a loose cannon at Tennessee in only one year and had rogue players. Now USC, who could be in trouble, brings him there. What a cluster-eff

    I agree with this and most of the other sentiments here, the guy is a complete tool.

    I saw the thread headline, and seriously, the first thought through my mind was a joke thread.

    Guess the Volunteer MB's are melting down about now...
