Theater of the Absurd takes a turn

Hey everyone. I promise this will not become the HTBOTN, but this Tennessee stuff keeps me so entertained.

Here's another classic.

This is Phillip Fulmer's official statement on what's happening at Tennessee. I cannot pick a favorite part.


“Over the last 24 hours I have been contacted by friends, great fans and media members, and I feel it is important to comment, as a man who loves the University of Tennessee deeply and shares this love with millions of great Volunteer fans and friends.


Recent events have been painful and an embarrassment to all of us who care about UT. I love the University; I am loyal to my alma mater and am ready to help as the University makes one of the most important decisions in the history of our football program. However, to prevent any misunderstanding, I am not seeking to be a candidate for the head coaching position.


I am looking forward to embracing the next coach and have some strong beliefs about the kind of man he should be. He must embrace Tennessee’s culture and traditions, be mature and of good character, and demonstrate integrity and leadership to our young men who desperately want to be shown the way. He must deserve, earn and keep the trust of our young men -- both present and future.


Tennessee football has been successful for so many years because it has been rooted in values and traditions. We can’t take those values for granted – if we do not guard them carefully, we will lose them.”

"mature and of good character"

That is simply nothing more than Fulmer aiming to take down the guy who fired him, Mike Hamilton and become the next AD. That is what I believe based on that statement.

Fulmer thinks Kiffin was a punk

I don't think it is a Fulmer / Kiffin thing at all, I believe he has leverage here and is using it to his full advantage to seek out those that wronged him.
