Just for levity, check out this thread from a year ago on the popular Volnation message board, in which one intrepid Vol asked the question "What happens when Pete Carroll leaves USC?"
My favorite answer:
"If Kiffin has the sort of success in Knoxville that would lead USC to even consider hiring him to replace Carroll, then at that point Vol fans should just say thank you and wish him well in Los Angeles. USC isn't going to hire him if he's going 9-3 at Tennessee."
But if he goes 7-6, he'll be out of town on the first thing smoking. Now if you'll excuse me, I'm going to crack open a fresh can of I Told You So. We're doing Cocktail Thursday a little early this week.
