Al Davis tried to warn you, Knoxville.
When he wheeled out that projector and told you all that Lane Kiffin was a con artist, you just assumed that Mr. Davis was some senile old fool with nothing better to do.
Well, guess what?
Turns out the old man was right.
You didn’t heed the warning, Volunteer fans. It was painful to watch, but Raider Nation knew there was only one way for you to learn this hard lesson. Just like a man with a wounded heart on the rebound. You fell for the black widow that goes from bed to bed, destroying families and leaving STDs in her wake.
When Kiffin was tapped to replace legendary coach Phillip Fulmer, we Raider fans knew exactly how this would end. Once the Boy Blunder began to run his mouth, racking up NCAA violations and constantly having to insert his foot into mouth, you all just sat back and laughed.
Not so funny now that Kiffin has jumped ship to fill Pete Carroll’s shoes at USC.
Raider Nation feels your pain. So too does Al Davis.
Al’s decision to give Kiffin the opportunity of a lifetime ultimately created this mess. Were it not for Al buying into Kiffin’s bold face lies, chances are he’d never have enough cred to get a gig at an SEC school, much less replace a god of the Pac 10 who revitalized the legend of Troy.
For Mr. Davis, this is no laughing matter. Silver and Black might run through Al’s veins, but he bleeds Cardinal and Gold. Watching football on Sundays has been difficult enough for Al these past seven years. Now, thanks to Kiffin taking the reigns at Southern Cal, Saturdays won’t be much more enjoyable either.
Chalk it up to Al Davis karma. Just don’t blame Mr. Davis for your pain, Volunteer Nation. You’ve been conned by a No Talent Ass Clown. It happens to the best of us.
