UT Student Housing at Gettysvue

UT will use Bruce Pearl's house as student housing. They should have given it that status before the whole recruiting violation/lying to the NCAA thing. Heck, Little Pearl probably already spent a lot of time there.

Quote of the Day

Bruce Pearl is selling his house. His quote is priceless.
Pearl said Monday that the property was "clearly my dream home", but that he needs to downsize. "Now that I'm not the basketball coach and may not be doing quite as much entertaining, it's bigger than what we need," he said.
Emphasis is mine.

Rules for Recruiting

As more information comes out about UT's NCAA woes (here, here, here), I have come up with the universal rules for recruiting.

1. Don't cheat.
2. If you cheat, don't get caught.
3. If you get caught, don't lie.

This is why I love sports

Wes Rucker has done the analysis and the Vols can finish anywhere from 2nd to 5th in the East depending on the outcome of three games this week-end.

Here is the best scenario:
"Alabama beats Georgia, Florida beats Vanderbilt, Tennessee beats Kentucky
1. Florida 13-3
2. Tennessee 9-7
3. Kentucky 9-7
4. Vanderbilt 9-7
5. Georgia 9-7"

I was at this game when Scotty went off. He showed us what we thought he would do every game. I think he had three crazy dunks that game and this one was just my second favorite. The best one was when he went slashing across the lane and just left everyone flat footed. He saved them for the second half so he could jam in front of the students and the bench.

Condredge Holloway Story

I watched the Condredge Holloway Story last night.

I'm not sure this is the same highlight, but they showed one video where he was touched by all eleven players on the opposing team and still could not be stopped. Ridiculous.

Holloway gives Bear Bryant a lot of credit for being honest about the fact that Alabama was not ready for a black quarterback. The editing almost sound like being up front about that fact was a bigger deal than having a university that could accept him as the leader of their team.

Definitely worth the hour I spent to watch. Check your local listings for future showings.

Dinner with Derek Dooley

I had dinner with Derek Dooley last night - with about a thousand of my closest friends - to celebrate the successful recruitment of the next freshman class for UT Football. He kept emphasizing the good character of these young men. Dooley seems to be a real class act himself. I hope he can win some games and stick around for a long time.
