Good luck to these guys.

Anyone know Paul's situation? Thought he was talented.

Just a guess, but it looks like he got recruited over. Happens..

Harris sees the writing on the wall. Same for Tom Smith. Good luck to both of them.

I was thinking there might be more than 3 in this boat. My question is, does anyone think they'll be more or is this it? Also, is there a deadline for this sort of thing?

I'm upset over losing Smith more than anybody. I thought like he looked like a capable 3rd down back. Harris I thought could've been good, but he got recruited over. Oh well

Between now and the end of the spring I think we lose 4 more players.

I thought the same about Smith until I noticed he couldn't even get snaps during mop up duty.

maybe more. depends on how many they sign and how returning players go through spring practice. those 2 reasons will dictate more moves if necessary

Currently laughing my arse off at the Jimmy moment I just had.

Went to twitter to look at Butch's quotes from today's press conference that I missed because of a mid morning appt. I follow a lot of UT football related sources. I counted exactly 9 different twitter accounts that all quoted Butch on the departure of these 3 guys ... all consecutively... All simultaneously and at the same time.

I then read further on my timeline other quotes from Butch, from these same sources.... they all moved on, seemingly in real time to the next set of quotes, again simultaneously.

Then, approximately 3 minutes later, I read this.....

@JimmyHyams: Butch Jones announces 3 Vols will not return: WR Paul Harris, DB Tino Thomas), Tom Smith, a RB. AJ Johnson still deliberating going pro

Bahahaha!!! You just can't make this stuff up. Not sure if he's a dollar but he's ALWAYS "a day late".
