RE: UTC AD to resign
Kiffin was an ass, but the fan base was excited about him until he left, and he left to take a better job. I don't see how that can be a failure. Barnes had the basketball team overachieve last season, beat everyone's expectations. I agree that Holly (especially) and Butch are on the hot seat, but that is what I am saying about UT fans being delusional about their program. When you are recruiting at a high level, are winning consistently (even when not competing for national championships), and graduating your players, I consider that a successful coach.

The Lady Vols aren't going to find another Pat Summit, and the football team isn't going to win a national championship in the SEC until Nick Saban retires, regardless of who their coach is. There is only 1 Nick Saban, and firing your coach because he isn't as good as Saban is silly. Just my opinion. That is all I will say about the UT program on this board- I really hate that school and their ugly orange.

Maybe it's all completely unrelated, perhaps I watch too much House of Cards, but that just seems a little too fishy.

I don't know him or anybody at UTC. This is pure speculation on my part. But when you look at pictures of him when he was hired, and compare with the ones now, he looks different, and thinner, particularly in the face and temples. I sincerely hope he isn't ill.
