Kiffin and USC's actions involving Tennessee Football were intentional, without legal justification, and were part of a course and pattern of conduct fostered by Kiffin and USC to use improper methods and means to the direct harm and damage of parties to contracts, to interfere with existing contracts and induce the breach thereof, including the Pola Contract: For instance, in December 2008, Kiffin accepted the contractual position of head football coach at the University of Tennessee. Without warning, in January 2010, Kiffin abruptly departed after one season, leaving the University of Tennessee without an experienced head football coach, to accept the head coach position he currently holds at USC. Shortly thereafter, Kiffin and USC persuaded four more University of Tennessee coaches - Monte Kiffin, Ed Orgeron, James Cregg and Willie Mack Garza - to leave the University of Tennessee to assume employment in coaching positions with USC. Upon information and belief, USC and Kiffin also attempted to hire for USC a running backs coach, Eric Bienemy, who was under contract at the time with the National Football League team known as the Minnesota Vikings. USC and Kiffin were unsuccessful in persuading Bienemy to end his relationship with Minnesota, but upon information and belief, Minnesota was forced to renegotiate Bienemy's salary to its detriment due to Kiffin and USC's acts of interference.

I offer no opinion upon the legal merits, vel non, of the lawsuit against Lane Kiffin which was initiated by this complaint (.pdf), but I have to say that you reap what you sow. Go 'Dawgs!

In leaving, Kiffin said over and over that he'd been at Tennessee for 14 months. Not quite. Kiffin was offered the job on November 28, 2008, the Friday before the Kentucky game, but he wasn't introduced until November 30th. So he's officially been at Tennessee for 1 year and 13 days. (Evidently I missed a month in my calculations here, he's been at Tennessee for 13 months. This is why I took a course called Mathematical Ideas in college. One of our exam questions involved coming up with an imaginary formula to count how many squares there were on a soccer ball. Also, we had to answer an essay question about whether we liked addition or subtraction better. I am not making this up.) Even giving him 13 months is rounding up. But I love that he chose to go with 14 months instead of just saying a year, as if 14 months is a commitment and one year is much less so.

How do you keep from getting on Clay Travis's bad side? Don't round up!

3. Mark Richt Richt has had one bad season in nearly a decade at Georgia. The Bulldogs continue to collect talent — nearly 20 players have been good enough to leave early for the NFL this decade. That said, Richt had better have a good season in 2010. As the dean of SEC coaches, he’s becoming stale in Athens and fans are starting to wonder if someone else might be able to do a Saban-like number on Georgia. (The fear should be that someone might do a Kiffin-like number on Georgia.) If Todd Grantham is the answer at defensive coordinator, the Bulldogs could return to previous form. Mr. SEC says Mark Richt is the league's third-best coach, behind only Nick Saban and Urban Meyer. (Hat tip: Leather Helmet Blog.) In the what-have-you-done-for-me-lately world of the Southeastern Conference, though, third place doesn't come without a few criticisms.

Dear Mr. Kiffin, I'm willing to let your vapid self-aggrandizement and self-denial go up to a certain point, mostly because it's pointless to expect anything better of you. But when you suggested in your USC press conference that the students were rioting because you must have done some things right here in Knoxville, for some reason I can't let that one slide. This is the latest bit of cognitive dissonance from the Volunteer faithful. Aren't these the same folks who told us a year ago that, if everyone was talking about Lane Kiffin, then he must be doing something right? Why, then, is it unfair for Coach Kiffin to claim now that the rioting in Knoxville was evidence of his prowess at Tennessee? Big Orange fans are talking out of the other side of their mouths now that the shoe is on the other foot, and, after the way they've behaved for the last fourteen months, I'm loving every minute of it. Let the Kiffinfreude continue!

We have seen some of the stunts that Kiffin has pulled at UT...that may be fine for the SEC and their nutty fan base but will that fly at USC?

Paragon SC's admirably measured analysis contains many meritorious observations, but this sentence misses the mark badly. Every stunt Lane Kiffin pulled in Knoxville was something he learned at USC; none of it is attributable to SEC nuttiness.
