The last time New Tennessee Vols Football Coach met the Big Orange Faithful here in Memphis, he was greeted with a Standing Ovation, despite being reprimanded earlier in the day for some erroneous remarks he made about the Recruiting practices of Rival Florida Coach Urban Meyer..
None of that matters to Vol Nation though..
The Memphis and Shelby County Big Orange Club out in Force for the Annual Big Orange Caravan at the Hilton in East Memphis.
The Main topic Tuesday, Not Kiffins' First Spring Practice as the Big Vol..but how he's come back from from an early gaffe to return Tennessee to National Prominence in Recruiting.
Kiffin says he knew coming in as a New Staff he'd have to do something to get Tennessee's name back out there in front of the top Recruits. He says he needed to be on ESPN, the Talk Shows, the Papers. Whatever it took, he was willing to do..and just 4-months into the job it helped him land a Top 10 recruiting class so he's happy about it.
