Let’s take a live look at how things are currently going at Tennessee…

Now the student section is chanting, “We Want Kiffin."

Annnnd it’s a total shit show. I can’t believe we’ve gotten to this point, but here we are. Tennessee fans are BEGGING the man who ditched them in the middle of the night for a better job after just one season to come back home.

Home, as in the place they said they would never welcome him back to. Not even if there was a fire.

Oh, and to just add a little more fun to all of this, we have fans who started this petition, which, as I’m writing this, is at over 8,000 signatures. At the pace it’s at, it’ll easily hit 10,000 by dinner time.

A year ago if you asked UT fans if they would take Kiffin back, they would’ve slapped you silly. Now they’re chanting his name at basketball games, writing on the giant rock, and creating petitions all so they can avoid a Dave Doeren hiring.

Somehow Kiffin always wins in the end.

Of course, he’s playing right along this morning… what a hot streak this guy has been on lately

Tennessee fans rush to sign petition calling for Lane Kiffin's return to Rocky Top. Only 1500?? 😢😢. I have 2000 for Kim Jung un!!!! Address to send it to??? @finebaum @ClayTravis https://t.co/tUtg9iWHdg

Students at #Tennessee were able to squeeze in a few “FIRE CURRIE! FIRE CURRIE!” chants before the band cranked up during a timeout at #Vols hoops Wednesday night. The next chant was for @Lane_Kiffin. pic.twitter.com/slxFwQ5oEg
