So Bama Dave, what were the facts about 6 potential all SEC/ All-Americans quitting the Lady Vols and taking their talents to our competitors?
Who is paying for a new practice facility and where will it be built in the next year?
Terrible article, maybe the author should have asked some questions instead of giving Patrick/Bama Dave a free pass on some tough questions.

I am shocked that Mr. Dave didn't ask you to for your input. Maybe some things you just don't have the need to know! Just a thought.

bama dave and bama jon are kicking out the RV people by the regal field. paid 15K for the spots for 20 years. still have 12 yrs left. they waited until the vandy game to tell us. not a very happy group. but with their record it is clear the need more practice.

All our top volleyball players left. It starts and ends with the coach. He really pulled a big boner power play. And Hart let it happen. Coach should get the boot.

I don't care that Hart went to Alabama. I do wonder if he is the right man for the job. I get the sense that he may be a bully. But we aren't likely to get much information from local media, because UT athletics is about the only thing that keeps most of them in business. If they lose what access they have, say by conducting a serious investigation into the things that have been whispered about since Hart got there, it would be bad for the bottom line -- at least after the interest in the scandal died down.

I don't suppose the new facility will also house an indoor track. Dave hasn't said a word about the track team having nowhere to practice.
