Changes Afoot

For those of you who are regular readers around here, you have doubtless noticed that it’s been pretty quiet around here at Gate 21 lately.  The phrase “brisk as the tomb” comes to mind.  Part of that owes to the ebbs and flows of life in the 21st century, part from my laziness, and part from the fact that changes are afoot here at Gate 21, well at least in a manner of speaking.

All I can tell you at the moment is:

  1. No, I am not dead;
  2. No, I have not given up on the Vols in the wake of Lane Kiffin’s departure; and
  3. Once again, there are about to be a bunch of changes here at the Gate—big changes—which I hope will be for the best.

At present, all I can tell you is that things are afoot and that I should have a big announcement later in the week or early next week.  Until then, it’s going to be a bit quiet around here.

For now, however, here is a little YouTubification of the Vols Winter workouts, courtesy of UTSports.com.

I’m loving that:  “Never leave you like Kiffin…”   That’s a keeper.

HLL: Tennessee to Hire Derek Dooley

“Multiple media sources are reporting that the former Louisiana Tech head coach has agreed to replace Lane Kiffin, who left UT for Southern California on Tuesday, and a deal is imminent. Several other media sources are indicating it is not a done deal.”

Considering all of the craziness over the last 72 hours, take this with a grain of salt, but it is the current story…

HLL: BREAKING NEWS: Calhoun to Stay at Air Force Academy

Headlines, Links & Lies | Gate 21

Despite reports to the contrary, apparently, Troy Calhoun will not be the next coach at the University of Tennessee

Calhoun to Stay at Air Force Academy

January 14th, 2010, 2:42 pm

Air Force has released a statement saying Troy Calhoun will remain coach at the academy in 2010.

Here is the statement from Calhoun:

“We are more than grateful and proud to be closely involved with the character building of our cadets and the mission of the United States Air Force Academy. We are diligently recruiting and working with our team to prepare for the upcoming season. We look forward to coaching and being a part of the Air Force Academy team both on and off the field in 2010.”

HLL: Sports Animal Interview with Monte Kiffin and other Links

Headlines, Links & Lies... | Gate 21

Here are a few more running links that I will try and update as the day goes on.

After he fired Kiffin in ’07, [Al] Davis famously noted, “It hurts because I picked the guy. I picked the wrong guy.”
The University of Tennessee now knows just how Davis felt.

And if history tells us anything, so — eventually — will USC.

On another note, sorry to anyone reading for being so disjointed in my posts today, but I’m trying to simply post things as they come to the fore.  I hope to try and post a few thoughts of a substantive nature later today.

HLL: Mike Hamilton Press Conference at 1:00

Headlines, Links & Lies | Gate 21
In case you didn’t know, Smiling Mike Hamilton will be holding a press conference at 1:00 regarding the departure of Lane Kiffin and what the future holds for the Tennessee Volunteers football program.

Streaming video of the news conference will be available via UT Sports, and streaming audio will be available via The Sports Animal.

I am sure all eyes will be on Hamilton and listening to what he has to say. I know I will…

…and if he values his job, I hope he looks mad.
