The reason why I am and probably every other UT fan is upset is because we had kiffin's back but it clearly shows he didn't have ours. Bottom line. From the moment he came aboard and started hiring other coaches a lot of ppl weren't for it but I would say there were a lot more that were. We were refreshened. We were excited. We were optimistic and eager. UT had the fire again. He brainwashed us into believing his lies on how were were a family. For over a decade we as UT fans were used to conservativeness and being overshadowed. Because of this I know when kiffin made a complete of himself because he couldn't learn to shut up, a little part of me inside absolutely hated it. I dont think there isn't a UT fan out there that didn't hate it simply because we weren't used to it but...we had his back. We defended him to the Fulmerites telling them that this is a "new era" and just give him a chance and when he produces results on the field complain then. When rival teams talked smack 6 months before the season and how Lame Kiffen couldn't coach a high school team but ended up only beating us by 10pts when they were supposed to beat us by 50, 45 - 19 rout, and a L in the win column becuase of two blocked field goals...we had his back. He told us that we were a family and we were "only just beginning" in our goal of a championship program. Do any fans outside of the VolNation family help them coach, help them win games, or matter? He said, "no." Evidently they do! We hated how he would run his mouth but because he was our boy we were like, "alright man I got you, I dont like it, but you're cool I got your back." What does he have to say back, "pssh cya I'm out and by the way thanks for the paycheck oh and hey those recruits I put in all the work over the past 14 months, they're mine, hey Ed you on the phone with BWillis? Now boys you know this is the only place..." After standing up and defending him and believing him through all of his lies he hits us in the back of the head while not looking without a thanks...Betrayal is the key word.
