Dear Lane Kiffin, You are an annoying whiny little prick. Your blaming the officials for your loss to Alabama on Saturday is the most ridiculous crap I have ever heard in my life. To say the officiating was one sided in that game is ludicrous. I haven't gone back to see what all could have been called throughout the entire game, but I have two examples from the last drive alone.
Example 1: 1st down & 10 - 1:16 left in the 4th quarter
Notice #88, Luke Stocker, the TE for Tennessee, grab onto #55 Chavis Williams' jersey and just not let go. This is just a minor occurance because there's enough of a rush to fluster Crompson anyway. The play results in an incomplete pass, but rather than 1st and 20, they end up with 2nd and 10 at their own 41 again.
Example 2: 2nd down & 10 - 1:10 left in the 4th quarter
Again, please notice #88, Luke Stocker, the TE for Tennessee, grab onto #55 Chavis Williams' jersey and not let go. Again. This time right in the middle of the field in plain eyesight of EVERYBODY. Still a no call. So, rather than 2nd and at least 20, the pass is completed, and they now have a fresh set of downs at the Alabama 46 with 1:02 left in the game.
We all know how it plays out from there.
So, Lane, we just wanted to let you know that you're quite lucky that you were even in a position to be able to kick the field goal. Had holding been called on either of those plays, I am of the belief that you would have never gotten across midfield.
Enjoy your moral victory, you pompous asshat. See you in Knoxville for that "game (you'll) win next year."
that "they" will win next year? doubtful. they are still 2 years out from even being contenders. we were tired and knicked up this game. LSU is gonna have their hands full after the bye. # posted by jerry : 12:36 PM
That was just a quote that he made after the ballgame. Said it was a game they should have won, and "a game we'll win next year."
