More from NYTimes about TN...



Looks like this problem extends beyond the football program.  If true, this really points at the dreaded 'lack of institutional control' that tends to really nail schools.  However, there seemed to be a lot more damning evidence at Southern Cal, and we haven't seen anything there, yet.  What really surprises me is that we haven't heard anything from the administration at Tennessee.   More thoughts after the jump.

It seems now that some of these girls are the 'boyfriend' of some of the recruits.  At least according to some facebook pages.  It is being SPECULATED that these girls are forming relationships with recruits, and then move on to new recruits the next year.  I will not put names on here (its not my place), but one of the girls that keeps popping up on message boards 'dated' Nu'Kesse Richardson last year and is 'dating' another recruit from Florida this year.  This is a Jr or Sr in college 'dating' a high-school guy.  I do understand that love can find itself anywhere, but really?  When was the last time any of you had seen an upperclassmen female in college date a guy that was still in highschool?

If this had been any other school in the SEC, including Forida and especially USC, than we would have heard from someone on the school about this by now.  At USC, we would have heard form Hyman about an internal investigation way before we reached this point.  Not to mention, it wouldn't have taken the NYTimes to break this story.

The worst I think that will happen to Tenn, is the loss of a few scholarships.  Probably for next year.  In the short run, however, this may actually work out for the Volunteers, so far for this class, they have 13 four star recruits.  Includeing two 3-start DE's from SC.  That's a lot of talent going to a school that is loosing a lot of assistants and hasn't shown anything on the football field.  (Our game against them is a whole new post onto itself.  For different reasons than some of you may think.)

We'll see how this plays out, but if the recent past is any indication, I don't expect much from the NCAA.  Who I do feel bad for is the fathers of these girls who are now famous for the wrong thing.  If my daughter (I don't have one, BTW) started to appear in national papers.... I would be extremely pissed.
