Giddy Teenage Boy Resembling Tennessee Coach Lane Kiffin Calls Urban Meyer a Cheater

You have to like new Tennessee head coach Lane Kiffin for one thing, at least: he has zero filter whatsoever, a rarity for a public figure not named "Charles Barkley" or "Lily Allen." He says what he thinks, and often does so like an excited adolescent listing his impressive array of accomplishments in World of Warcraft. ("This guy in my recruiting guild named Orgeron casts a level 12 recruiting spell like you wouldn't believe, and my dad even plays!") ↵
↵
↵Therefore you shouldn't be surprised at Kiffin for wanting to tell the whole universe about the good day of recruiting he had yesterday, or about the cool new shoes he got, or about that time he swears he caught Urban Meyer calling one of his recruits while said recruit was on campus with Kiffin. This is something Kiffin will just go ahead and call cheating, even though what Kiffin accuses Meyer of in this video isn't actually against any NCAA rules. ↵

↵He's so cute and excited, and possibly just slobbering a bit there because he's so amped over scooping a Florida recruit. For those at work who can't hear the sound, here's your money quote: I love the fact that Urban had to cheat, but still couldn't get him. The recruit in question is Nu'Keese Richardson, a 5'9" Florida commit who opted instead to attend Tennessee yesterday. Kiffin did not limit comments to Meyer alone, though. He had this to say about Nick Saban, who recently lost coach Lance Thompson to the Volunteers. ↵
↵⇥"Nick Saban (Alabama’s coach) should have started his press conference (Wednesday) by saying, 'Our great class that we signed ... I’d really like to thank Lance (Thompson) because Lance signed eight of those guys.'" ↵
↵Tennessee, in year one of the Kiffin era with no established starter at QB, gets to play both Florida and Alabama on the road this year. When you go on the road, just have the Vols training staff leave the Bactine and aloe vera at home: the burns the Vols are likely to receive will be so severe no amount of medication will help them.↵
