That didn't take long

December 2, 2008

Just a day after being introduced as the University of Tennessee's football coach Lane Kiffin is already receiving some verbal blows from USC coach Steve Spurrier. And no it had nothing to do with the Citrus Bowl. This time Spurrier hinted that Kiffin possibly broke NCAA rules by contacting Tennessee recruits before he was cleared to do so. The recruit in question is Jarvis Giles, a running back from Gaither High School in Tampa, Fla. Giles told several media outlets that Kiffin contacted him early Sunday morning, which was a day before he was introduced as the Vols' new coach.

The NCAA requires coaches to take a recruiting certification test before they're allowed to contact recruits. Spurrier noted that he didn't retake the recruiting test until after he was introduced as the Gamecocks' new coach and joked that Kiffin might have called Giles as "an interested observer.'' But Kiffin clearly stated in his introductory press conference, that he took the test a couple days before he was hired.

Spurrier firing the first salvo is no surprise as he is probably just bitter he doesn't have Phil to poke fun at any more. Also Kiffin is taking his former recruiting coordinator and quarterbacks coach David Reaves to Knoxville with him. The good news for all of us, is that this rivalry is just getting started. With the bravado both these men exude I think we can expect a lot more trash talk in the future.
