Kiffin-year capers just won't go away for Vols

Ah, the Lane Kiffin era, otherwise known around Big Orange Country as the Year of Living Stupidly.

Like an old septic tank that won't stop stinking, another Kiffin caper emerged late Monday night on Yahoo! Sports involving former Volunteers assistant coach Willie Mack Garza and notorious talent scout Willie Lyles.

According to the website, Garza wired Lyles $1,500 in July of 2009 to cover plane tickets for running back prospect Lache Seastrunk and his mother, Evelyn.

If the names Lyles and Seastrunk sound familiar, they should. Both are at the center of the NCAA's ongoing investigation into Oregon, where the player eventually signed before transferring to Baylor University in August.
