Tennessee's messy split with former head coach Lane Kiffin can be largely summed up by t-shirts: When word broke last month that Kiffin was bailing for USC after barely a year in Knoxville, Vol fans reacted by torching their leftover Kiffin gear, notably the "It's Time" t-shirt that covered the campus with Kiffin's face last fall. Since many of those items wound up going to a more productive cause, there was a void for shirts that expressed their Kiffin hate more directly. A void that has been filled:
That particular item comes from a Nashville mall, according to the L.A. Daily News, where a USC fan happened to hanging out over the weekend -- presumably not wearing Trojan gear at the time, or things might have gotten ugly.
