That’s kind of my point about these guys..... HT and EG was two of the most productive players we had.... Them choosing to leave to go to playoff teams is strictly on our university.... if it wasn’t a dysfunctional mess then they would still be Vols...I would consider leaving as well if being a vol wasn’t ingrained into my soul.....I have only missed two home games since 1990 except for the covid season..... most of these players don’t have the same experience.
Regardless of being good players, a purge needed to be made. If they wanted to go, then go. The players who cared about the program are the ones who stayed. Nothing to do with how the violations were investigated. They came to play for Pruitt, who made his own bad decisions. The core of the problems needs to be the blame, not the collateral damage.

Our problems have went way beyond Pruitt and this past season..... I like the way JH is approaching things and I’m hopeful that DH can turn this universities culture around.

That was kinda my point. There are some that are truly Vols that would not leave to go to a playoff team because things didn't go the way they wanted. Granted some of these may have not had a choice.

The way AP flirts with the Hayden’s on Twitter is so weird.

UT should personally pay VQ a year's salary to hire someone young and personable to interview kids about UT.

Nothing against AP personally but it is just so awkward watching Stay Puft man interacting with high school kids.
