74. Lane Kiffin Gets A Little Too Excited, Too Early

Who: Lane Kiffin, Tennessee Volunteers
Offending Tweet: @LaneKiffinUT: "It's a beautiful day in Knoxville, Tennessee today. I was so exited to hear that J.C. Copeland committed to play for the Vols today!"
Date: 5/19/2009
Consequence: A self-reported incident to the NCAA.

Lane Kiffin tweeted the name of unsigned recruit J.C. Copeland before he had actually committed to the Vols. The tweet was actually a violation of NCAA rules. Tennessee later said it was an assistant of Kiffin's, not the coach himself, who sent out the tweet. We're totally gonna use that next time we start drunk tweeting.
