Pete Thamel: The Follow Up.

He's hinting and encouraging that Slive will and should or could punish the Vols.

Quote:

But Slive’s strong words last summer hinted at SEC penalties; he said that the league had the “authority and the will” to levy additional punishment. “The risk may be lost recruiting opportunities, lost ability to interact with prospects, and additional scrutiny for themselves and their program,” he said.

Additionally:

The N.C.A.A.’s interest and the strong stance by the Southeastern Conference commissioner, Mike Slive, on recruiting actions last summer leave Tennessee in a tenuous position with signing day in February.




He's doing everything he can to effect recruiting. With this guys connections to Meyer and Florida Maybe the NCAA should declare him a representative of the U of Florida and investigate their practices to effect recruiting.

If nothing comes of this and Slive still tries to punish UT, than the Vols should join the Big 10 or something.

Minor violations; UGA 20 = zero ink

UT 6 = NYTimes falsely reporting an NCAA investigation is underway and members of the Orange Pride who are female being described in a sexist way as hostesses being libeled as part of the original false declaration of a "wide ranging investigation" concerning wrong doing in recruiting.

I've read all this garbage from the NYT. The University has done nothing, IMHO, to have the NCAA looking into.

I would like to know who is REALLY behind this crap.

this is what happens when you hire a coach NOT READY TO LEAD.

did you honestly think all the mouthing off and pissing all over the league would result in NO retribution.

make enough ENEMIES and one will surley come back and stick you right in the back.

oh well,dont say i didnt tell you!

Where have you been throughout the football season?

And what are we getting punished for? They have yet to prove anything. Plus what is UT supposed to get punished for if they had nothing to do with it? Seriously!
