Photo: UT eats its words after Kiffin's offense destroys former team
Lane Kiffin’s departure from Tennessee (in the middle of the night) was both bizarre and unorthodox.
Leaving to take the job at USC in 2010, those in Knoxville certainly did not take kindly to the way in which Kiffin left.
Now the offensive coordinator at Alabama, Kiffin is understandably not a popular figure in white and orange country.
Prior to today’s contest between Alabama and Tennessee, it was revealed that UT facility workers wore this button — undoubtedly a veiled shot at their former head coach:

What did Kiffin’s offense do against the Volunteers’ defense? It torched them for 594 yards of total offense — including 438 yards on the ground en route to a 39-point victory.
Kiffin surely had the last laugh when it came to this Knoxville reunion.
