    Link Tee Martin turns down position at Tennessee to stay with Kiffin at USC

    http://msn.foxsports.com/collegefoot...h-jones-121112

    Man, this must burn the Vols.

    "''I was very honored to be offered a position on Coach Jones' Tennessee staff,'' Martin said in a statement posted on school's website. ''I truly believe he will do an outstanding job with the Vols program. My decision to remain at USC was the toughest I have ever had to make because Tennessee is such a special place to me."

    ''At the end of the day, I am a man of my word. I promised Coach Kiffin when I was hired at USC that I had goals I wanted to accomplish here. We still have work to do here to reach those goals. I see a great future at USC with the players on our roster and the recruits we have coming in."
    If God wanted me to be humble, he would have sent me to Auburn.

    I'll bet Vol fans got a chuckle from someone saying this and choosing Kiffin as his new mentor.

    Unfortunately nothing ever came of the article for Martin or Fulmer.

    "Should I go back to Tennessee where they still have stuff on me or should I stay at USC where I have plenty on them?"
    I'll always look back as I walk away
    This memory will last for eternity
    And all of our tears will be lost in the rain
    Til I find my way back to your arms again
    But until that day you know you are
    The queen of my heart

    Tee Martin turns down position at Tennessee to stay with Kiffin at USC

    So. Cal or Knoxville? I think that's an easy choice, especially at this time.
    ROLL TIDE!

    I'm sure he is learning some even dirtier tactics by Lame.

    Saw a Vol fan tweet:

    #SinceTeeTurnedDownUT ...we are just Ennessee
    "I don't know what class is but I can tell when one has it, you can tell from a mile away"
    Coach Bryant

    Rasuputin's response to my question "What benefit do tablets provide students?"
    (In an old southern trailer park redneck beer in hand marlboro light in other and camoflauge cutoff shorts man's voice) If a tablet was good enough for Moses and the 10 Commandments then by god they are good enough for my children in school today!!!!!!!

    Tee Martin is probably seeing both the USC and UT jobs and stepping stones. With what I know, I'd get as far from Lane Kiffen as a could, but I'm not so sure Martin is any more upstanding than Kiffen.

    Anyway, what a slap in the face to Volnation. This is the lowest point I've ever seen the UT program. They can't seem to get anything right lately.

    If he was such a man of his word, why hasn't he ever come clean about the money he got from the Mobile booster? Oh yeah. He gave his word to the booster and phat phil never to tell about it. And yes the Viles up here have taken his rejection to stay with kiffie as treason. He is now public enemy #1.

    He didn't want to make less money than he did when he was a player.

    Southern Cal is a much better job than Tennessee, so it makes sense that he would turn it down.
