I'm friends with Lee Humphrey, (the 2-guard for Florida's NC teams) and he has told me all about how they went through an entire game day simulation just for him. They had a "Humphrey" jersey waiting at a locker for him. They had cheerleaders and smoke and lights and everything in the gym for him...all on a recruiting visit.
Now, as for the other stuff Kiffin did, I absolutely applaud him. What, is Meyer going to beat him worse this year?? A loss is a loss, whether it's by 1 point or 60 points. UT has lost to Florida four years in a row, and a few of those losses came even before the coin toss. That is because Fulmer's regime had given up on the Florida rivalry. We had become "okay" with competing for second in the SEC East. This display by Kiffin is all to show fans and recruits that we are not okay with being the Outback Bowl team every year. We are not okay with Florida getting to walk all over us every year. Meyer might beat Kiffin this year, but it won't be because we weren't emotionally ready for them. Who cares if Meyer, Saban, Richt, and OBC hate Kiffin??? All that matters is that the fans and recruits see that he's got passion for this program, and he's willing to do what it takes to show everyone that. I also think he got a few of Bruce Pearl's lessons on how to get on ESPN when you aren't even playing a game.
