UTFans, something that might interest you is a program called SPECIAL ADMISSIONS THAT 7 schools don't participate in UNIV. OF TN.,TEXAS,AIRFORCE, CONNECTICUT, KANSAS STATE, PURDUE AND VIRGINIA. The biggest violator in the nation is none other than ALABAMA. Two other programs close to them are Oregon and Ga. Tech. From 2004-2006 alabama had 19 football players enrolled under this program. This explains alot as to how Al. getting the cream of the crop. Vanderbilt with its Peabody connection is in this same method of admmions for athletes.
In 2007, Steve Spurrier threatened to quit S. C. if their admissions standard wasn't lowered. One player tried twice to get into S. C. and on third try after standards were lowered was none other than All American Eric Norwood who recently graduated.
All of this explains how so many teams are out recruiting our coaches. COACH JONES NEEDS TO SET DOWN WITH CHEEK AND HART IMMIDATELY AND DEMAND THAT THEY LOWER THEIR STANDARDS FOR THE SAME REASONS. This explains why Vanderbilt is getting athletes that we can't get.
Northern Ill. univ. has a similar program called CHANCE PROGRAM. The Univ of Minn. has a program call ACCESS TO SUCCESS WHICH is similar.
JIM HASLAM AND some of the people putting the money into UT need to step up and put pressure on CHEEK THAT HE IS GONE, if this doesn't change. This is the only way we can contue in the SEC.
Go Big Orange.
