After Nick Saban left LSU for the NFL in 2004, the Tiger faithful were not too happy. He had made claims that he would continue to be their coach, but then went running to the big leagues… Pete Carroll style. LSU was pretty discontent then, but when their former head coach flunked out and went to Bama, they felt like a bomb had been dropped on them. They were so angry at him that a trash dump in Baton Rouge was renamed the “Saban Waste Facility.”

I guess that is what you call the rest of the SEC these days… Boom, Roasted

Well, after He-Who-Must-Not-Be-Named left last week, the Vol fans were even angrier that their Head Coach went running for Dollar Signs. So not to be outdone, a Knoxville lawyer decided to pay the $262 fee to rename a local water treatment plant the “Lane Kiffin Sewage Center.”

It is very common for a college town to rename a building or a street after distinguished athlete or coach. For instance, at Tennessee we have have a basketball court named “The Summitt”, a street named Phillip Fulmer Way, and the most clever street name ever… Peyton Manning Pass. However, this will be the first waste treatment plant in the country named after a member of the athletic community.

One of my favorite parts about this story is that it only costs $262 to rename a building in the city of Knoxville. I’m not trying to brag, but as a graduate of the University of Tennessee, I make almost $262 a month (jealous much?). And being that I am rolling in cash money from my part-time/minimum wage job, I just want to announce the sign you guys will be able to see on UT’s campus…
