    If the infractions are as numerous and serious as they're suggesting, it's doubtful UT would narc themselves on all of them just to get the 'cause' for firing Pruett. It's fun to kick around, but the infractions may indeed be what got this going and Fulmer stepping down.

    UT has just announced the hiring of Lulu and Junior to coordinate their Head Coach and AD search.

    UT has become a basketball school for the immediate future or at least the next 5 years.

    You could be right. But the UT Chancellor falling on the sword like she did and admitting to serious violations just gutted their program. They could have said "we are concluding our investigation" not admitted anything, and then confronted Pruett and negotiated a cheap buyout. What they did was beyond stupid.

    It's all so very sad.;)

    I was thinking that Steele might not be that bad of a choice for the Vols, but I looked up his resume. He has one HC job in his past. Maybe not fair, but that job was at Baylor, from where he was fired after going 9-36. :eek:

    EDIT - after having my arithmetic corrected for me

    9-36? You lose 4 out of every 5 games for over four years? ouch

    Is anyone besides Steele going to be willing to take the HC job when they're under threat of NCAA sanctions?

    Yep, was about to post the same. Not sure what they have left to rally around, certainly not baseball.

    If Gus would take it, they’d be crazy as his wife not to take him.

    I'm just saying, Tennessee spends more freely than Florida does. And the resources and money at Tennessee might be attractive to Dan Mullen. If Grantham were up there, he would've been canned already.
