    Tennessee Gets New NCAA Penalties from Lane Kiffin's Time at UT

    Link

    The NCAA Division I Committee on Infractions announced today additional penalties for the University of Tennessee related to a major infractions case involving Willie Mack Garza, an assistant coach on the staff of head coach Lane Kiffin, during the 2009 season.


    These penalties include a two-year extension of the probation issued during the 2011 infractions case, a reduction in official visits for the 2012-13 academic year from 51 to 47, a reduction in evaluation days during the spring 2012 evaluation period (already completed), and during unofficial visits during the fall of 2013, no complimentary tickets may be provided to prospective student-athletes for the first two conference games of the season.


    The University met with the Committee on Infractions on October 13 for an expedited penalty hearing on an agreed upon summary disposition report submitted in June of 2012. The facts of the case, that Garza funded a prospect's unofficial visit to the University in 2009 and subsequently lied to the Enforcement staff when interviewed as an employee of the University of Southern California, were not in dispute. Resolution between the Committee on Infractions and the University of Tennessee regarding the penalties could not be reached and an expedited penalty hearing was held.

    First find the one responsible and then shouldn't the school that the perpetrator is at (or the last place he was if he's left and not working) be the one to take the hit? That would be fair.
    I know what it takes to win. If I can sell them on what it takes to win, then we are not going to lose too many football games. - Coach Paul Bryant and I can see Coach Nick Saban agreeing completely.

    I feel bad for Dooley if he is still there next year. He is a class act.

    Tennessee's one-night stand with Lane Kiffin continues to leave the Vols with a rather embarrassing care of Herpes.

    This may actually help keep him there a little longer.

    I think the best analogy would be that Lane Kiffin was Tennessee's date to the company Christmas dinner. Lane got drunk, insulted all of Tennessee's coworkers, threw up on Tennessee's boss, stumbled into the company president and knocked him into the spinach dip, and then ran off with the former hotshot from accounting who was under investigation for cooking the books and was arrested the next week.

    It would only be better if both UT and USC got additional penalties!
