Don't Throw Stones At Lane Kiffin

Monday, January 13, 2014

As a Florida Gator fan I was sad to see the way Mr. Kiffin was treated at Tennessee. 

Tennessee fans deserve better. At Florida we still have coaching problems ever since Spurrier left.

Jesus once told a crowd, “Let him who is without sin cast the first stone.“  I believe in second chances and it seems like Mr Kiffin has had his fair share. 

But we should not be throwing stones. Instead let's look for positive things to say about SEC teams.

Uninspired Ooltewah Sweeps Soddy Daisy In Key 5-AAA Match

It's a real challenge for a high school volleyball team to get up emotionally and physically to play the same team two matches in a row, especially when the first one was somewhat lopsided. But that was what the Ooltewah Lady Owls had to do Tuesday evening when they visited District 5-AAA rival Soddy Daisy. Ooltewah improved to 12-2 overall and 4-0 in 5-AAA with the three-set ...
