Vols fans still despise Kiffin

And, in other breaking news, water is still wet and the sky is still blue.

It’s been nearly two months since Lane Kiffin stunned fans of the Tennessee football program by abruptly bolting Knoxville for a return trip to his USC dream job.  Suffice to say, Volunteer fans really know how to hold a grudge.

The Knoxville News Sentinel ran a poll on their website Sunday, asking the following question: Kiffin Poll.PNG

No gray area there, eh?

But Steve “You Can’t Spell Citrus Without UT” Spurrier at the bottom of a Volunteer venom poll?  I guess that pretty succinctly sums up his post-Florida coaching résumé.

    Yeah, so? Lane is the ex wife that got caught cheating and tried to take the kids. Of course we hate em.
    But we got a new girlfriend now.

    More like Vol fans are the psycho ex-girlfriend that does not move on with their life

    or in your case, ex boyfriend.

    And Ed Orgeron is female abusing dru… oh, wait. That part is true.

    I would be embarrassed to be a Vol fan. No one was even talking about UT prior to Kiffin getting there. He did your school a favor and reminded people that UT has a football team.

    Okay, how did Peyton Manning get on this list?? When and how did he fall from grace with 50 Vols fans?
    Of course Vols fans are sick of hearing about Kiffin, that’s a given. If you polled Bama fans, Mike Shula would probably top the list. We don’t want to hear about Mikey BECAUSE we’ve moved on. But I can’t imagine any Bama fan would write down Joe Namath’s name. Manning is Tennessee’s Joe Namath. So what’s up with that?

    Who the hell cares? I actually agree with the UT fans about not wanting to see any more stories. Your obsession w/ Kiffin is unhealthy…and a little creepy.

    Manning got on the list because he could not beat the Gators, he went 0-4.

    This fixation on kiffin is a little much…..did he beat you up and steal your lunch money back in school?

    seriously, they have every right to hate his guts right now. name any fan of any team who just got screwed over like he did tenn and they’d all be pissed.
    some of you posters must be usc fans or something. (i.e. dense yet vapid)

    Hey tryagain, do as your handle says before trying to insult people. We all know Vols fans hate Kiffin. That’s the point – everyone knows it, so why waste time and electrons harping on it? It’s like a breaking news story that says “water is still wet and the sky is still blue”. Oh, wait a minute. The point of the survey was who do Vols fans NOT want to read about anymore. Reading comprehension is not your strong suit, is it?
