South Carolina v Tennessee
Yesterday, the University of Southern California announced Lane Kiffin as its new head football coach. I'm still trying to understand Lane Kiffin. To me, the man is highly overrated. Has anyone else in the history of sports been able to do more and reach higher heights by vastly underachieving? Kiffin first served as the wide receiver coach and then offensive coordinator of USC from 2002-2006. Kiffin was then head coach of the Oakland Raiders for the 2007 and 2008 seasons and lead the University of Tennessee during their 2009-2010 campaign.

Besides being a pompous jerk, Kiffin has recently been identified as a malicious recruiter, media hothead, and disliked coach among the coaching world. Not to mention, Kiffin's time at Tennessee was marred by player arrests and suspect recruiting. Kiffin now takes over the reigns of one of the top 5 jobs in all of college football. This should be interesting to say the least.

2007 Oakland Raiders 4-12
2008 Oakland Raiders 1-3
NFL Record 5-15
2009 Tennesse Volunteers 7-6
Overall record 12-21
