Evidently, they are still scared in Knoxville over Lane Kiffin “shootin’ deuces” and heading to Southern California.
In a stunning practical joke announcement captured on video, Knoxville New Sentinel sports editor John Adams has made a sudden decision to accept a position at USC and will not be serving as the honorary head coach of the Orange Team during Saturday’s spring game.
Last spring, the Orange Team made serious strides under Adams in his first year as head coach.
Adams, ala Kiffin, started his presser by saying, “First of all, thanks everybody for coming on short notice. This wasn’t in the works for very long.”
Adams added, “I’ve been there before and this is just a really special opportunity for me. For me, it just a dream is calling and I’ve got to answer. This is a once in a lifetime opportunity. And it’s the only place in the world that I would have gone to.”
Here’s the practical joke video, courtesy of the Knoxville News. Below that, since this is a slow Thursday, we’ll give you the original (Lane Kiffin “shootin’ deuces”).
