I remember the first time my son used the F-bomb, I realized that if he had not heard it from me, it was a miracle.
Does this mean Butch Jones is not qualified to lead UT's football program? Or, more specifically, does it mean this was the first time these young men have ever heard this word? While the answer to both these questions is no, that doesn't make it right.
Personally, I fall on the side of using profanity only when it will have the desired effect of getting attention and changing behavior. I'm not defending that, but I think it's a common occurrence in college football (see Bo Pelini), and I've never heard players complain about it.
I guarantee you that when I came home from the service, my wife had several months of purging me from my own mouth. I don't think I'm a worse person today because of it.
