It seems that there is a line that Lane Kiffin won’t cross, and insulting proud gas station workers is on the other side of it.After Chris Low’s report on receiver Alshon Jeffrey’s recruitment, many were quick to criticize the young Tennessee coach, who put himself into the middle of another controversy before ever coaching his first day in orange and white.(Apparently, it’s not kosher to claim that Jeffrey “would end up pumping gas for the rest of his life like all the other players from that state who had gone to South Carolina.” Who knew?)But in a meeting today, Kiffin denies ever making the derogatory comments.”I never said that to Alshon, nor would I say anything like that,” Kiffin told ESPN.com’s Low. “That’s just not something I would say.”While it’s getting tough to believe a guy who has called out Urban Meyer incorrectly for cheating and has openly bragged about getting over on coaches like Steve Spurrier and Nick Saban, this would be one of the more ridiculous things Kiffin has done in his adventurous months on the job. Even so, Kiffin insists he’s not a negative recruiter.”That’s not the way we’re going to do things here, and it’s something I don’t condone,” Kiffin said. “Things get said all the time in recruiting, but I don’t know where (the pumping gas comment) came from.”Thankfully Kiffin and the Volunteers opened practice today, so he’ll have the chance to skewer his own dreadful team to the media for the next couple weeks.
