Not goin’ away any time soon.

The Associated Press is reporting that the Title IX litigation against the University of Tennessee could take two years to play out.

I don’t think it’s possible to schedule enough pressers to counter two years’ worth of negative recruiting, Booch.  Not that you won’t try.

    Well, I don’t know how much people will still care about this in 2 years because the saying that time heals all wounds comes to mind. Hope that they do, but I’m not holding my breath.

      I agree, any suspect currently involved will be drafted and playing in the pros. They will then give the standard “Im focused on right now and not the past” when they get asked. Peyton Manning will have to deal with it for a while though.

    The student’s attorney, Knoxville lawyer Don Bosch, is singled out in the lawsuit for repeatedly representing UT athletes accused of misconduct. Bosch, who was on the UT Athletics Board, has not responded to requests for an interview.

    So the lawyer that defends the athletes is also on the athletic board and also represents the student who falsely accused the athletic administrator of sexual misconduct? Yeeeeeesh.

    • Withdrawing an allegation is not necessarily a false accusation, right? Perhaps Mr. Bosch convinced his client she didn’t have a case? But I guess that’s what you’re getting at?

    “Asked Saturday at the NFL scouting combine about an accusation from former Volunteers receiver Drae Bowles that Maggitt punched Bowles in Tennessee’s locker room in 2014, Maggitt told reporters to contact Knoxville attorney Jeff Hagood if they had any questions.”

    Good luck with that at the combine. I scratch him right off my board if I am an NFL GM. If it is not true just say it is not true. Be like Butch. He seems to have a lot to lose by not addressing this. Senator from a legal standpoint why dodge this if it is not true?

      I think Bluto is a real estate pro. Focused on a real estate practice. Yes he’s an attorney but I don’t think that’s how it works.

    I was thinking Tenn would take a recruiting hit also, but then I thought to myself, “has FSU really suffered from the Winston ordeal or Baylor been crippled by the stuff there?” Honestly, I don’t think they take much of a hit in football recruiting unless Butch gets fired. Could it hurt recruiting for their women’s teams? Maybe.

    I don’t see Butch getting fired…hell, after Dooley left, UT couldn’t find anybody to take the job…they probably held a gun on Butch to get him to sign on…

    Booch is fine. Dave Hart is behind him 1000 percent. More importantly, where is UT’s IPF?
