If  Nu’Keese Richardson was looking to transfer out of Tennessee, he got his wish.

Division I-AA is going to look like heaven compared to prison.

By now you know that Richardson and two other Tennessee players were charged attempted armed robbery early Thursday morning. You also know that one of the alleged victims thinks it's no big deal. Hey, that's football in Tennessee.

It’s obvious that smarts were not a big part of Lane Kiffin’s first recruiting class. The three players had everything ahead of them and threw it all away. One of those charged, Mike Edwards, was coached by Ted Ginn Sr. in Cleveland. Ginn’s life has been dedicated to preparing inner city youth for a better life. This has to be a huge disappointment.

But Richardson is the name that will make headlines. He started the whole thing. Well, Kiffin started the whole thing accusing Urban Meyer of “cheating” to get Richardson out of Pahokee, Fla. Meyer didn’t cheat and, thankfully now, didn’t get Richardson.

A Tennessee football source told me earlier in the season that Richardson wasn’t getting on the field because he couldn’t be trusted yet. That was in reference to his football skills. There were rumblings that Richardson wanted to transfer.

It’s not going to be the type of transfer he thought. I can’t see any way these three don’t spend some time in prison. Kiffin surely has to kick them off the team soon, if not today.

In the short term, Tennessee will take a beating on the recruiting trail. There’s a chance that Kiffin’s first class has been gutted. We’ll see. As a whole, the Volunteers have overachieved this season. Now they’ve been betrayed by some knuckleheads.

I think you're dead on.  Honestly I think he's very immature for his age and the only reason he appears to be doing somewhat well this season all goes to his Dad.  His Dad will be there only success, but how long w/ Dad be there?

It's tough losing to the Gators 5 straight years and to have only won 6 times since 1980 huh?  The only thing Kiffin has done is prove what a big mouth he has.

Facts Straight?

Read the Lyrics to the Song. Listen to the Song.

Kiffen's response? Quote on his Twitter account: " A huge Shout Out to L'l Wayne for boosting our street cred"

Next thing boosted? Three impressionable college freshmen arrested for attempted armed robbery.

None of the above is anything but published fact.

If you can't see the relation of a coach "shouting out" to a convicted felon, and then three of his recruits attempting to boost their own "street cred", well, good luck to you in the future.

Gator fans seems to forget Urban Meyer has, at my last count, 24 arrested players under his belt and 6 this year... And if any since the "electric" Janoris Jenkins I have missed...  The guy fought with cops and had to be tazed...  Talk it up gator fans..  You only embarrass your team by doing so..
