For anyone who can watch a college football game and think that it's just a bunch of nameless faces, wearing numbers, like little mechanical dots on a field...then I challenge you to look at these photos and tell me that coach doesn't care about those kids. I particularly appreciate the picture with Jonathan Crompton, which - to me - epitomizes the "miraculous change" that he showed in his playing earlier this season. It was no miracle...he just needed someone to believe in him. Thanks, Coach Kiffen, for coming to Tennessee, for believing in all those players, and for making football a "game" again. Go Vols!!!

I don't care who it is, when they can't play by the rules off the field, then they don't need to be allowed back on the field. That's the only way some people will learn. Thanks, Coach K, for standing by your word that these kids will be held accountable for their actions on the field, off the field, and in the classroom. Tough love, but somebody's gotta do it.

I have la-la-la-loved Brett Favre for ages and ages. I have stayed rather distant from comment regarding his departure from GB, his stint with the Jets, and now his place in Minnesota (I love Purple and Yellow!!!). I know people have said "not nice" things about his recent career decisions, but -- quite frankly -- sometimes, 40-year-old men DON'T always make good decisions. Am I right?
I think Brett should play as long as he wants to, for whomever he wants, and I'll always be here to turn on the tv and watch him play...All. Day. Long. :-) Go Vikings!!! (Wow...I haven't said THAT since I was, oh, 16 or 17 years old!).
