During the current downtime when college coaches can’t so much as glance at a player, Monte Kiffin is spending his time in Tampa with only one thing on his mind: Gator stompin’.
In particular, Kiffin continues to explore ways to counter some of the unique offenses Tennessee’s Vols will face this season. Foremost among them is Florida’s lethal spread, with Tim Tebow pulling the trigger.
Those who know Kiffin say he has spent considerable time analyzing ways to deal with the divide-and-conquer formation as well as the Gators’ across-the-board speed. At UT, it’s Job 1.
So the defensive coaching legend whose name is synonymous with the preeminate scheme used in the NFL has devoted his undivided attention to stopping the 21-year old serial circumciser? And they’re predicting a four-touchdown spread? Vol fans, place your bets and prepare to retire early.
