If you thought this was worth a chuckle, allow me to continue to poke UT with a stick for giggles. The Banner-Herald reports that Kiffin will get former Vols to recite Gen. Neyland's maxims before each game and share what the maxims mean to them and the Big Orange.
This is pretty frightening stuff. Can you imagine the frenzy created by having Casey Clausen or Jabari Davis reading inspiring football principals from the 1930s? Then, they say what these ancient rules mean to their lives! Just thinking about this makes me want to rip my shirt off and chant "WILD BOYZ!". I can just imagine how it will inspire twenty year old kids.
For those of you unfamiliar with the maxims, here is a sample:
1. When at the peak of the flying wedge, lead with your noggin and fear not, for your service to humanity through eugenics will not be forgotten.
2. When tackling, pounce on the ballcarrier like a landing gyrocopter and never like a decending dirigible.
3. Oskie, oskie, run, score, run ... these are the keys to triumph, whether over Sewanee or Cumberland.
4. Avoid recruiting Hoovervilles, but if you must, bring cabbages and turnips.
Quake at the power of the seven maxims!
