Did Rodney Garner run out of money or something? Turned over a new leaf? Wasn't he the OG Bagman? So why didn't he just pay out again, my man?

"But but the coaches that were recruiting him at Auburn are here now...why would he go to Auburn now??" ... the coaches that couldn't secure his commitment at Auburn, where he actually wanted to be, are now his new coaches - and you guys thought that would HELP you??
What are you doing? Don’t you have some kinda barn forum to go to?

I'm not the one passing judgements, just asking questions. Might want to rethink which of us is actually playing Gatekeeper here.
No I like it when posters say stuff like that. Gives me a reason to respond. All views and opinions welcome, even (and especially) the dumb ones.

Now, for fair balance, I’ll inform you that my natural attitude is smartazz.

Did You run out of bandwidth to frequent your board?

Are you actually naive enough to think RG was paying kids. Ever heard of the cabin? The coaches don't get directly involved with paying players. That's done behind the scenes nd gives the coaches plausible deniability. Auburn and Alabama cheat at an unprecidented level and they have a system in place regardless of the coaching staffs. Pruitt handled that here because TN doesn't have those systems in place. His atm got fired so he went to a new atm. Shouldn't be that hard to understand.

No one ever considers their own opinion dumb. Think on that.

We continue to critique and criticize the decision of a kid who chose UT because he was getting sacks of money and free trips to a Knoxville club. I think our attempted plea for logic might be a waste of time. Let the kid go try to figure it out at Auburn. Good luck to him. It appears he will need more than luck.
Fair enough. Just pointing out that Auburns D-line was notorious because of the work Rodney put in and he’s a hell of a recruiter

Don’t need to.

Adults who get upset about a kid’s college choice is dumb. And especially when the kid made it clear he didn’t want to be here.

There is no other side to that. I know that because that kid’s decision won’t affect that adult’s life in any meaningful way. Won’t affect it at all, actually. So if someone wishes to argue to otherwise, well they just want to argue. Good news is I like to argue as well.

Hiring Garner will help us. This kid just got paid twice. He obviously had a love affair with Pruitt, and Auburn was the fallback plan.

Yeah bro, the first and only time that Tennessee has ever cheated is with Pruitt...right? You guys never had the cheating infrastructure in place...are you serious LOL?

For those who want an actual rundown: this kid was a heavy Auburn lean, his cousin is former Auburn WR Jeris McIntyre. Rodney Garner and the rest of the previous staff straight up blew his recruitment as they did with the rest of the 2021 class. Kid felt like Auburn didn't even want him. Whether or not Tennessee paid him is beyond the point. Now you guys are confused why he's leaving even though you brought in the guys who blew his recruitment at Auburn LOL?

I'm also curious: who exactly got paid by you guys from the 2021 class? Only the guys that ended up wanting out of their LOI, right? Everyone else who stuck with you are all clean "VFL" kids who would never take a bribe?

The sour grapes is comical. I've been browsing your threads and from what I've gathered: every recruit you lost "got paid and just wants another paycheck somewhere else too". That's quite convenient. Did the guys who stuck it out with you also get paid?

I like to argue... Since when did a 5* defensive lineman not have an effect on a college football team? Especially one in desperate need of them? Since when did not having a good team not have an effect on a fan in the SEC where it just means more? That is dumb to even pretend that anyone who spends time daily on a recruiting forum is not going to have a reaction. Apparently you spend so much time time defending the players that you don't know what being a fan is. A fan is a fanatic, and anything detrimental to the team will and should upset the fan. But continue being the only smart one in the crowd. Must be lonely.

We are not confused why he is leaving. He said repeatedly that he was coming to Tennessee because of Pruitt. Then he said he wanted out of his NLI because Pruitt was gone.

Yes, the word fanatic is so big and confusing I just couldn’t figure it out.

You can be a fanatic and not be dumb. It’s a thing.

Throwing a fit bc a kid who didn’t want to be here is now not gonna be here is dumb. It just is. It’s dumb. Exactly what production are you gonna get from someone like that? Having that player here hurts the team more than it helps it and seeing as I’m a fan, or fanatic, I want what is best for the team.

But sure, let’s bring some more toxicity into the environment in Knoxville. That’ll help change the culture in the program. But I guess we should do it bc dangit the kid signed a piece of paper that says he has to come here.


















Just for the record, I’m currently very much enjoying this argument.

I never claimed TN was clean. They are not. But are you aware of the casinos where there are players only rooms with slot machines? Again the cabin is infamous. What about Scam Newton? It's documented that his dad received $150K and the NCAA said it was ok because Scam didn't know about it. Yes, you guys cheat at a level that most can't comprehend. TN isn't in the same universe. That goes to basketball too. Pearl gets busted for a BBQ at his house and gets a 2 year show cause. Y'all are caught red handed buying players and Pearl is still coaching 2 years later. Haha. Own it, you guys are scum. Now back to your cow patty tossing tournament.

Fans are passionate about their team, and losing a commitment from a highly rated player at a position of need inspires anger, especially when you factor in he's probably already been paid, and he signed the contract(NLI). Personally, I think UT should have stuck to their original restrictions. Let him go, but not to another SEC school. But what's done is done.

But at least I finally got an answer to my question. You continue to post because you like to argue. Understood.

Most don't, but it appears you do.

No idea who u are but GTFO. Lol. This is a TN Board. Brown doesn’t fit this offense and almost got cut by Gump. Gooch was a huge project. Brooks stings but as soon as Pruitt was fired he was gone.

Imagine that, an Auburn fan who doubles as a condescending *******. Never knew those existed.
