For recruiting violations, particularly with OT Amarius Mims. Mims signed with Jawja. Is Kirby next?

I'm sorry but QQ - I used to be on here years ago but left and now im back today, paid my first month, but I cant seem to look at certain things like "What Christian Robinson said to a recruit" which I'd love to know but i click on it and says i need to join Rivals premium? But I paid the $9.95 and can look at some articles that are for paid subscription only, anybody know? Thank you

"... Pruitt's exit comes on the heels of Tennessee launching an in-house investigation dating back to November into
alleged recruiting improprieties that sources told ESPN centered in part on extra benefits provided to football recruits on unofficial visits."

Gray,

Extra benefits are always good !
Especially if they are similar to the extra benefits Rick Pitino & Louisville provided when a former men’s basketball assistant paid an escort service to provide strip shows and sex for recruits and other players ?

Way to go Pruitt !

Guys, everyone knows that our opponents don’t cheat on recruiting. It’s just an excuse for Mullen’s suboptimal results.

For him to out recruit Pruitt, the extra benefits Kirby is providing must be long lasting & top of the line !

Of course both of them Coached at Bama under Saban - but no way would Saban cheat !

LOL

Tennessee in its termination letter to Jeremy Pruitt: “Your failures are likely to lead to significant penalties to the University and has jeopardized the eligibility of our student athletes.”

Fulmer is retiring as AD as well. My guess is that Kevin Steele will be interim head coach until they can hire somebody. If the UT program wasn’t already a dumpster fire. It just got set back even further.

BTW I hope Saban brings him back as DC. And hope Pruitt is smart enough to realize this time that DC is his ceiling and stay there.

For UF fans, no it's not good news. I'm enjoying UF's stranglehold on this series. I'm still pissed Butters Mcelwain ended an 11 game win streak against Tinersee back in 2016. I'm concerned they'll finally find a good coach to compete against Florida.
It’s been 23 years. They won’t find anyone willing to touch that steaming pile of shit.

Huh? Why do you say that? They have had like 4-5 failed head coaches in a row and we dominated all of them. The program is a major dumpster fire.

Does UT turn UGA in during the investigation? Wims is the focal point of the violations.

I know, I know, I'm just being too greedy, perhaps selfish for wanting to beat UT at least 25 seasons in a row. I've enjoyed this advantage far more than I've enjoyed watching UF win 31 in a row against Kentucky.

Talk now is that there are numerous vio
Gray,

Enough violations to get 9 coaches fired - Pruitt plus 8 more.

Ex-Auburn DC Kevin Steele who just came on board may be the only coach who isn't fired.

He may end up as the interim HC - in case they actually sign a recruit on NSD - Feb 3, 2021.

Copper Monkey 30 minutes prior to kickoff
And if you read Donde Plowman’s letter and statement, it is shockingly transparent how they are willing to cite to “a significant number of serious NCAA rules violations.” That probably ain’t a real smart thing to promote...whew...

Tennessee is burning their own field so the NCAA doesn’t do it. It’s the wrong approach unless they just want to press reset from their 2017 mistakes and do so cheaper by not having to pay buyouts. It’s a mistake especially if the NCAA still hammers them.

And what decent coach is going to want to jump into that mess, when the Ugly Urange have shown they won’t have your back and will orchestrate investigations against you if you ain’t winning games..... and let’s face it: UT wouldn’t be flying Beldar’s underwear on the front lawn if he had won 7 games this year
