    this season. I'd like to congratulate Low on winning the 2011 Mr. Obvious award.

    It amazes me that ESPN pays him.

    It amazes me no one in the Knoxville media has not ran with this.

    Why? Other than Hyams' vendetta against Kiffin for treating him like the second rate rube he is, when has the Knoxville media ever been anything but a PR outlet for UT?

    Never but this story writes itself. As lazy as the Knoxville media is, I figured they would go the easy route.

    Joe Schad even thinks Low is behind on this one.

    Just curious, what did Kiffin do to Hyams?

    IIRC, it's more of what he didn't do. He didn't kiss his ass and give him the access that Phil did. He was pretty upset about the black jerseys. I'm pretty sure that Hyams said that there's no way we wear black. He got sand in the vag when we did but didn't fill him in on the plan ahead of time.

    He treated Hyams, and the rest of the local media, like annoyances. He was only concerned with the national guys. He saw the KNS and local TV as a bunch of yokels. Rightfully so.

    Starting about 12 seconds into his first press conference when the media started asking questions.

    John Adams: "Yeah Lane so in your opinion -"
    Kiffin: "You're going to have to introduce yourself. I have no idea who you are."

    Hyams is pretty upset about Dooley not letting him in too.

    At least there's one thing Dooley's gotten right.

    He only requires powdered donuts. Too cheap not to employ.

    That's one of my favorite moments in UT sports history. The previous staff was stunned that guys like Adams and Hyams would think anyone would have the first clue who they were.

    I don't know why writing for the local paper should makes one a yokel. Mike Strange, Ben Byrd, and Gary Lundy are/were respected people in their profession who have done good work, especially when national coverage was harder to acquire. Sure there are knuckleheads in the local scene, but these national guys are just buffoons on a bigger stage.

    If we work in a medium-size town in a particular industry, doesn't that make us all yokels?

    I have great respect for all three guys you mentioned. They are/were top notch. Strange wasn't around that much, so Kiffin didn't have to burn him. Who they work for and where they work doesn't make the Knoxville guys yokels. Being yokels makes them yokels.

    Fair enough.

    I was a few chairs over and behind Adams and I thought I was going to fall out of my chair.

    I have no use for either him or Hyams. Griffith is also worthless.

    Strange is an excellent guy and good writer.

    Chris Low is a joke. And if he gets any fatter, he's going to turn into Verne Lundquist.
