I give it three years before UT gets caught in some major recruiting scandal.

Brown is friends with David Oku, who signed with Tennessee last week. Arian Foster graduated, so Brown will have a great shot at winning the #2 job as soon as the season starts in the fall.
He was choosing between Tennessee, Kansas State, and Miami. Kansas State sounds miserable (even though he's from that area). Miami isn't in the SEC, and CRS could be in hot water if he doesn't win something this season. Tennessee is a storied program who had a tough year last year. This new staff is selling the idea that these kids can be a part of bringing it back to where it belongs. Plus, as bad as UT was last year, we were three plays away (missed 35 yard field goal - UCLA, Crompton INT returned for TD - Wyoming, Foster fumble on our goal line - Auburn) from being 8-4, instead of 5-7.
No reason to accuse anyone of a violation just because we got a good class. It's not like we are Alabama!
I'm not accusing UNC of anything...though I have no idea how David gets those kids to agree to play football there.

Assumptions aside, I suspect Arthur Brown will be transferring from Miami to Knoxville before too long. Not a bad little haul by Lane in his first year...

Certainly, Lane Kiffin has put himself in a position where he had better win early and often, or he will be toast.

CLK just needs to win 7 games in his first year to keep the fans tolerant. He will land a top QB recruit for next year, and he had just better be up to 9 games by his third year.

Monte is a ******* stud.

Also, that whole 3 plays away from yadda yadda logic is flawed. Everybody can say they were one play away from something.
Any more word on how that superbowl coaches party turned out for Tennessee? I'm just waiting on the ball to drop before Lane gets officially caught up in his own doings. He hasn't exactly been making a shining example of himself, and he certainly hasn't won anything worth mentioning in the coaching world on his own merit.
I give Kiffen no later than Nov. before he is fired and/or put on probation.
