Et tu, Junior?

Honestly, this is almost cruel.

Almost.

*********************************************************************

UPDATE:  This, on the other hand, is flat out hilarious.

If Tennessee winds up playing in a bowl game this season, its football staff won’t collect bonuses off the appearance.

Tennessee’s nine football assistants and its strength coach signed contract amendments this week to waive any bowl bonus for this season that their contracts otherwise would entitle them to receive.

Knox News obtained the contract amendments via a public records request.

By those 10 staffers waiving a bowl bonus, the athletic department will save $324,870.

Coach Jeremy Pruitt also will not receive a bowl bonus this season under the teams of the contract extension he received in September.

300 grand will buy a lot of cupcakes.

    The Vols are taking a beating on the recruiting trail and with their current roster with all the players quitting and heading to the draft or simply transferring. Next year it won’t be any better for Pruitt and he is finally shown the door. It’s like shooting a wounded animal at this point. If your’re a UT fan, it needs to happen sooner than later.

    If he loses to Vandy this weekend he probably won’t make it back to Knoxville with his job intact.

  5. Seeing the Tennessee coaches’ bonuses wiped out reminded me of all those fakakta bonuses Randy Edsall got squeezed into his contract at UConn. If there’s a bonus in there for going undefeated, there are gonna be some awesome presents under the Edsall family Christmas tree!

    I’m sure another contract extension will fix the problems up there

    A 2-6 team in a bowl game?! At long last, have you no sense of decency bowl committees?

      Yeah, I don’t really get it. I guess it’s for TV but it seems like there would be enough teams with decent records (meaning non-losing) to fill up the bowls. They aren’t worried about traveling fans this post season.

        If most bowl games for player safety include limited special events for the and restrictions on family. Once your there on virus restrictions for a game who’s sole purpose is to generate money you won’t get a penny of for others.
        I can see a lot of players thinking why should I go. I’ll stay home with family and friends. I expect lots of players to opt out. Boston College probably won’t be the last team to pass on bowl season either.

    I just learned those North Avenue nerds are so smart they knew they were going to have COVID issues 8 days from now, so they preemptively cancelled their game with #10 Miami on Dec 19. I’m sure it had nothing to do with them most likely getting their asses kicked. LOL

    Tennessee is just two blue chip decommits away from fulfilling my July prophecy of five 4-5 star decommits and their class dropping out of the top 10 by the December signing day.
