I've followed the Big Orange since a Freshman in 1964. I have never seen the Vols in this bad of shape, across all sports. I am optimistic about Coach Jones and Coach Martin; time will tell. Just don't understand how we got ambushed in all areas, including baseball. GBO

Mike Hamilton who cared more about raising funds than winning. Who left a legacy of losing and bad decisions, but who walked away a millionare knowing he destroyed a once proud athletic program.

What was said about Hammy destroying a sports program is so true. The thing about him raising money is not. He spent the reserve and now UT is underwater. Everyone knows there is no uniformity between college programs on accounting principals, however any revenue gains that happened during Hammy's tenure are tied to two big things, the SEC TV deals and Pearl. Those are two things that he had absolutely nothing to do with. (in case any of you have been asleep or under a still, Hammy choose to keep Buzz and the next day Haslem fired him and had Grunfeld find a coach. That coach was Pearl).

I would agree Mike Hamilton and his in house supporters. But I place a bit of blame on part of the fan base.

While we're at it, how about maybe convincing Jalen Ramsey to change his commitment to Tennessee from USC?

Go Vols!

It is easy to ruin all areas at once. All you have to have is an athletic director that is stupid and chintzy.
