Classy move and I'm sure they know what they are doing in regards to the number of scholarships available. Glad to see Drummer get one, he's an alum of Powell High School where my son plays

Happy for the kids and their parents, but I have a hard time awarding scholarships to players that are not going to see the field. I mean one is a back up place kicker, one is a holder, and the other has yet to play an active snap in a game??? I get the "hey they're from TN" but......?

If it's for the spring semester and doesn't hurt recuiting then I'm all for it. Reward these kids for their hard work.

Hey!!! I thought James Franklin was the only one that did this sort of thing. We really missed the boat by not having this on ESPN.

Sorry I only had half the story earlier and I am glad to see it was true it will not effect the number of this class. Very classy move IMO.

Nope. Just giving an opinion from someone who played at the same level on the same exact team (albeit on a much better squad). We won 18 straight regular season games at one point and were ranked #1 for our classification for a majority of a year, and not a one of us was DI good, not even close. Our coaches would tell you that. We had several DII and DIII kids, nothing more. Do some research before you accuse someone of being a hater. The truth remains the truth, no matter what you "believe." I bled with old dilly, won many battles with him, and lost a few too, and I'm glad he's gotten the opportunity. But there is no excuse for UT to be giving scholarships to anyone that I've played with in my lifetime.

Proverbial "we shouldn't be wasting scholarships/These coaches don't know what they're doing/I know what I'm doing because I watch football and post on Volnation" comment.

It's so true that Franklin is a doosh pushing his agenda. The proof is evident.
