The "story" to write about during this period in UT football history wasn't Wyatt being dismissed and for what reasons; it was inevitable he was going given the program side and especially post the General’s passing. It was just a matter of how and when!
The interesting back story to write about UT football `60-65 I would think would be the events and maneuvers that transpired during the next fall of 1963 that put interim Coach MacDonald out, interim AD Woodruff in as permanent AD who then subsequently hired “his guy” Coach Dickey (for six seasons until he could walk out on a returning Top Five/potential NC 1970 squad for his beloved Florida…) so that he (Woodruff) could then insert a 28 year old never been a head coach before as head coach of a Top Five returning team which then lead to the program being turned over again six seasons later (1976) in such bad shape it then took Coach Majors another dozen seasons (1989-90) to recreate some year to year consistency in the program.
Now that’s a story worth writing about; its just too bad Brezzy Winn would not be around to offer the “other side” of the fall `63 story account.
