BREAKING NEWS: Tennessee and Florida don’t like each other 

By Post Staff

So new Tennessee coach Lane Kiffin is irritating the Gators.

Stop me if you’ve heard this before.

Florida and Tennessee have always been rivals, but Kiffin has taken it to another level the past four months, poking and prodding at the Gators and Urban Meyer, trying to inject some life back into his program.

It began the day Kiffin took the job in December, when he spoke about singing “Rocky Top” all night long after defeating Florida, and continued through recruiting, when Kiffin wrongly accused Meyer of cheating.

Meyer and the Gators have been relatively quiet in their public retorts, but there are rumors that Kiffin’s disrespect has been fueling the Gators in their offseason workouts.

Well now we have our proof. The good people at took a tour of the Gators’ locker room and weight room at Ben Hill Griffin Stadium, and did some fine reconaissance work.

Sept. 19 can’t get here soon enough.
