The last thing I thought Lane Kiffin would do this is muzzle his quarterback. After a three-interception game against UCLA, Kiffin made his fifth-year guy Jonathan Crompton off limits to the media during Florida week.
A freshman? Maybe. If Crompton is old enough to vote and go to war, he can answer a few questions about playing a bad football game. Let's hope that JC is emotionally healed enough to lose 35-3 at Florida. (That, by the way, is a compliment. All this 63-10 stuff is crap. Tennessee's defense is too strong.)
"It blows me away sometimes how much hatred there is toward him ... " Kiffin said of Crompton.
"I'm not going to pull a Mike Gundy but the kid is in college. He's a college kid, he's a great student and I feel bad for him. Make sure you understand, there ain't a guy in the country trying harder than him. That's preparing harder or doing more to try and do things right. He's going to do well for us."
