I haven’t had anything to say about the latest black eye to the Tennessee athletic program, for a couple of reasons. First, it had nothing to do with Junior’s gig. Second, I knew somebody would express my sentiments in a better way than I could.
Tennessee Athletics Director Mike Hamilton is still trying to decide what to do with the latest band of armed Vols: Basketball players Tyler Smith, Melvin Goins, Cameron Tatum and Brian Williams.
“My first reaction was anger, real anger,” Hamilton said. “But I’ve learned that you should always try not to make an immediate decision on emotion.” …
Coming less than two months after a gun-related incident involving UT football players, Hamilton is concerned about public perception.
“This is not an indication,” he said, “of what the lion’s share of our student-athletes are about.”
The University of Tennessee: Where only some of our athletes are armed and dangerous.
Very well-played, sir.
It’s too bad there’s no AD of the Year award, because nobody has had a year remotely approaching Hamilton’s.
