Also to be noted.. the article says Pruitt specifically gave money and gifts as well as other coaches and family. If they had the direct receipts of this, which it sounds like they do since the article when into detail about the violations, then I don’t see how Pruitt can sue the university.

For Pruitt and staff, extra benefits went well beyond cash—they paid for hotel rooms, some of them at the Crown Plaza in Knoxville, airline tickets, dozens of meals and more. In one allegation, coaches delivered $500 in university apparel to prospects while under the cover of a parking garage. In another, the staff paid $225 in nail salon treatments for families. During one unofficial visit, coaches took prospects and family members on a fishing trip that included a meal from Knoxville’s famous Calhoun’s restaurant and coaches spending $175 on a meal for a prospect’s family at Dead End BBQ.

On at least two occasions, the staff bought McDonald’s for prospects and their families, though the bags included just food and not cash, as was erroneously reported by TV and radio host Dan Patrick. Staff members did, however, buy Chick-fil-A breakfasts for recruits.

Not so coincidentally, his camp has been silent for months on a possible claim.

So we now have, potentially, another 150 days to wait for the actual punishment. Assuming the "60 day reply window" comes with the actual punishment.

We'll have our 2023 class wrapped up before anything happens.

Now comes the penalty phase of the case.

Tennessee and the people named have 90 days to respond to the notice of allegations. Then the NCAA enforcement staff has 60 days to reply to those responses.

So, is there anymore debate about how Plowman and Boyd handled it?
Again, it’s almost like people on here didn’t have the full story and all the information like Plowman, Boyd and Company. And this is another reminder of what it looks like to have adults in charge of the University.
