It's cute when Knoxville pretends they didn't want Kiffikins anyway, but the newest proposal is fitting: bestow his name on the place they get rid of their shit.
A local attorney has filed the paperwork with the city council to rename a waste treatment facility the "Lane Kiffin Sewage Center," because apparently renaming public buildings is just that easy in Tennessee.
It dawned on me—Lane Kiffin told us that he hoped the fans would understand. I thought 'Well, naming the wastewater plant for him would let him know, I think very clearly, we do understand,'" [Drew] McElroy, an off-and-on season ticket holder said. "We want to memorialize his stay here, and I think this would be doing it appropriately."
Look, UT fans, it's been more than a week now. This is starting to get like the overbearing girlfriend who wonders why she drives men away, except her obsessing makes it clear to everyone else. And besides, it's not like they'd actually change the name of the plant. But McElroy's cool with that:
We don't have to rename the entire facility after him, just a part of it," he said.
McElroy conceded just a cesspool at the facility would be enough to satisfy him.
