Seantrel Henderson Is A Beast

Seantrel Henderson was the last big name to announce where he was going on National Signing Day for college football. I live in Columbus, OH and I’ve been hearing about this guy for a few weeks now and all of the local radio hosts were salivating at the chance that he’d be a Buckeye. Well, Henderson threw everyone a curveball tonight and he picked USC.

Notre Dame, USC, Ohio State, Minnesota, and Florida were all in the hunt for the 6’8, 300-pound Offensive Lineman. He’s a senior at Cretin-Derham Hall High School in St. Paul, Minnesota. It appeared that the University of Michigan was the early favorite, but he changed his mind more times than you can count on both hands. No one had any idea what college he was going to pick leading up to tonight’s live broadcast on CBS College Sports Channel. He is going to be the left-tackle at USC, protecting QB Matt Barkley’s blindside for the next few years. I doubt he will redshirt since he already has a professional body and appears to have nice technique. Lane Kiffin has proven that he is a great recruiter, let’s see if he can coach all this talent and win championships. Here is the video of Henderson picking USC and another video which is Henderson’s junior year highlight reel.

Tennessee Hires Kiffin For His Wife

The University of Tennessee hired former Oakland Raiders coach, Lane Kiffin, as their new coach. Anyone who watched the news conference didn’t even notice Lane Kiffin, his wife Layla should have been the one answering questions. My questions would be “Really? Lane Kiffin?, “Lane and Layla Kiffin, did you guys just make up those names?” and “How does it feel to be married to the man who will be getting beat by Spurrier, Meyer, and Miles on a weekly basis?”

Lane Kiffin isn’t new to the college game, he was a mid-level assistant at USC before taking the Oakland Raiders head coaching job. It is rumored that he is bringing his father, defensive coordinator for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, along to run the defense at Tennessee. I wouldn’t have just taken Lane Kiffin either, it was a smart move by either the university or by Lane’s people to get his father involved in getting him the job. Tampa Bay has had a great defense since Kiffin’s father has been the defensive coordinator and should bring another exciting defense to the SEC. In two or three years it should be fun to watch the Vols play teams like LSU, Florida, and Alabama. I’m not sold on Lane Kiffin’s head coaching ability, but with his father there, I’m sure he will be able to delegate responsibility to qualified coaches.

Enough talking about Lane Kiffin, I’m sure about 95% people who are reading this just wants to know about Layla Kiffin. It looks like she has a couple cookie-cutter kids and that’s about all the information we could find. When Tennessee starts the season next fall, look for a lot of camera time for Layla Kiffin. Remember when the Cubs and Marlins were playing the “Bartman Series” and they kept showing Kerry Wood’s wife in the stands, expect that same camera work in 2009 and beyond.
