First off let me say that this column by John Adams on UT’s latest signee is total bullcheet. This kid looks to have turned his life around completely – his victim recommended that Tennessee accept him – and it looks like the staff and school did a very careful job of evaluation before offering. But Junior shouldn’t extend a chance because there’s too much history at UT? Give me a break.
That being said, stuff like that comes with the Laner’s territory, Vol fans, so you better get used to it. Some people aren’t going to see much of a step from Bryce Brown to this and aren’t going to give a coach who refers to his school’s program as his “franchise” much slack at all.
And this isn’t going to do Junior any favors, either.
… Reports out of Mississippi claim that Ole Miss football could lose as many as three scholarships when the NCAA releases its new APR report. The problems, according to the report in the Jackson Clarion-Ledger, stem from the last season under former coach Ed Orgeron. Last season, the first under new coach Houston Nutt, the football program scored 939, 14 points above the minimum required score of 925.
Ole Miss will have until the 2010-11 season to cut the three football scholarships.
Pass the Red Bull, please.
