It turns out that the paperwork released on the Tennessee coaching search totaled more than 8,000 pages. Now that’s what I call a document dump.
I get the feeling that with each new story I read on this there will be people scouring every syllable looking for something even dumber than the last gem they found.
Dennis Dodd shares a bunch of ’em. Check out a couple of my new favorites.
At one point, interim Tennessee coach Brady Hoke texted Currie in all capital letters. He urged Currie to ignore the “MOB MENTALITY” criticism former Michigan AD Dave Brandon went through.

Oof. If Hoke had even a shred of self-awareness, he had to realize he would soon be packing his bags.

In one communication, a detailed PowerPoint presentation from an agent on behalf of Texas-San Antonio coach Frank Wilson contains this statement taking up an entire page:
Not a single UTSA player has been arrested since Frank Wilson became a head coach in January 2016.
Honestly, given the history of the UT program, I’m not sure that’s not more of a bug than a feature.
In any event, it looks I’ve got plenty of fodder left for slow blogging days this spring. Thanks, Vols!
