The only thing I’ve read this afternoon that has made me feel okay about losing Leach is some mystical combination of Fulmer, Tee Martin, & Chavis. That said, the idea that Fulmer had anything to do with tanking the Leach deal so that he could be brought back on board is worrisome.

Seemed to be very nervous twosome with very carefully chosen words. Hope they can get it done.

I’m starting to feel better. Feels like some wrongs from 9 years ago have just been atoned for.

Truth be told, we have no idea what went on for the last 20 days, and so long as some of the behind-the-scenes suspicions remain present (however they manifest themselves), there is still cause for concern.

BUT- and this is a big adversative- nobody loves Tennessee more than Phil Fulmer. If we are going down, and there’s more to be discovered at rock bottom, at least we’re doing it with Phil, and I’ll ride there with him.

I’d been in full support of this 8 months ago. Call me paranoid, but I’m going to wait until I see results in the search. This whole week has tested my trust. I’m still not buying the whole “Currie went rogue” angle and Beverly seemed tense during the whole show. It all seemed like a distraction from the issues upstairs by getting a familiar face as a public figure.

With that being said I’m confident Fulmer is for the best interests of Tennessee and is currently out only hope to salvage our class.

Phil: I’m awesome, UT is awesome, recruits will think we are awesome, our coach will be awesome.
Bev: Don’t ask me anything about anything that has to do with anything. I’m simply here to be the unrecognizable person introducing the person everyone recognizes.

In other news, our next BBall opponent GT, just got beat by an awful Gramling team.

Definitely need to win that or it could count as a bad RPI loss.

I was thinking back to the questions surrounding Fulmer and Majors and stumbled upon you gem: https://www.rockytoptalk.com/2012/8/1/3207753/20-years-ago-in-big-orange-country-the-season-when-one-legend
