A mess of a week

My life has been in disarray this week due to the installation of new floors in the bedroom section of our house. Mrs. P and I have been sleeping on the family room couches because all our beds are disassembled and stashed in the living room or the main bathroom (Really!).

All that is a long way of saying that I haven’t had the opportunity to post much this week. The IT guys at work frown on my doing it there, and my home computer has spent most of the week broken-down and sitting on the fireplace hearth in the family room.

I have enjoyed watching the whole University of Tennessee – Lane Kiffin fiasco. What a piece of work!  Charles Barkley was quoted with a great explanation for Lane’s inexplicable rise to head one of the nation’s premier college football programs.

“Lane Kiffin has got to have pictures of somebody having sex with a monkey.”

Thank you, Sir Charles!

More on Tennessee football follies

About the time I posted yesterday’s comments on the UT football situation, Coach Kiffin kicked two of the players off the team.  That was the safe course. No one will seriously criticize him for that.

I think I might have suspended the players and waited to see what comes out in court.  Sometimes what something appears to be at first,  doesn’t turn out quite that way in the end. You could always play the “dismiss card” later, when the facts are in.

Well, Lane probably knows more then what is being made public, and, as I wrote yesterday, that’s why he’s making the big bucks.

At least two of those kids had really big potential. They’ve probably totally screwed that now. I hope for their sake they can get their lives together and make something of themselves down the line.

I’m still a big Gator fan, but I can’t chortle over this mess.

Oops! I just reread yesterday’s post. I guess I already did.
