Its just the world we live in these days with the transfer portal. No decision made today is final, they can bolt. I always hated it when a coach left a program and the players were left with no viable options. Now they have it and it is a problem...IMO. Too many kids in the portal, but thats a whole different discussion. I was glad Henry didnt show out against us, but I follow them all to see how they are doing at their new school. This one stung more because he went to Bama, but that was clearly one of his top options out of HS, so nobody should be surprised.

I don’t claim to be an expert but ToaToa has been overated since arriving at Tennesse. He looked great as a freshman, with Bitulli being the lead dog, hasn’t impressed me since. Not closed to being great at Tennessee or Alabama

Not asking for a smart reply but one question. Have you ever played any organized sport in your life? Truthful answer. Any sportsmanship or respect factor involved on your part @ all? this has nothing to do with To'O To'O by the way. I'm a tad sore on him also. Just taken aback by this statement of yours
You can be taken aback if you want but sports aren’t always sunshines and rainbows. Yes I have played sports my entire life and there have been instances where it was nasty between both teams. I was the player that never said a word to the opposing team. Just play the game and let your play do the talking. I recall one game, I was playing first base, guy spiked me running up the line, could’ve torn my Achilles because I was stretching out for a ball. They didn’t bother to throw the guy out of the game even though my sock was ripped to shreds and my leg was bleeding. I was due up to bat after that inning and told the home plate ump, “if this ball comes anywhere near me, I’m just letting you know what’s going to happen.” Ump tells me “hey we don’t need any of that.” To which I responded, “as long as he throws it towards the plate then we won’t have any problems.” My teammate ended up hitting a walk off grand slam and needless to say that was a situation where we didn’t shake hands because someone would’ve said something to start a brawl at that point. Most teams I do respect and don’t have any issues with, but there’s just a few select teams where it’s just best to play the game and not have any interaction with them afterwards.

No, they won't be touched, and shouldn't be. The people in charge of the program that brought in and advocated the cheating are the ones accountable. Especially when you approach a young fellow from lower socio-economic strata and offer benefits not accustomed to do what comes naturally for him. It's the people who obviously knew better taking advantage of vulnerable, easily manipulated, and malleable young folks who should be punished. If, however, a player comes asking for compensation to play, the people in charge should escort him immediately to the door, and out of town. However, with the NIL now, I wonder if that applies anymore.

Pruitt probably broke rules to get him here. He got scared when the investigation started is why he hit the transfer portal (along with others). He may have respect of other players, but doesn't seem to have love for Tennessee. So he gets no love from me.

Loved UT? Based on what? Fu** him. He’s a soft pu*** boy who abandoned his team/teammates and decided to go to play for our most hated rival. He can go eat a bag of di***.
Quite honestly? I feel those players who left? The majority were the ones they had proof they had received McDonald's bags. Not all, but most.

Everyone claiming he came to UT because of his love forgot that he left as soon as they found out about the McDonald's bags.

So did he love UT or did Pruitt pay him? Be honest, because if I love UT, then I don't leave as soon as Pruitt gets fired.
