The $700 fine was previously reported, as it was assessed at the first decision. The Signal Mountain High administration was well aware of the taxpayer money that would be wasted on the unnecessary and un-winnable appeal, that is unless they once again felt reading the TSSAA by-laws was below them.

Dooley is running a clean program with the expectation that Tennessee continue to remember that his players are STUDENT athletes, not pre-pro NFL ballers. That is to be commended, whatever the record! I am tired of my taxes funding the travels of kids that have no intention of educating themselves and honoring my investment. Go Vols!!

I have been waiting for anyone to state the obvious here. If this player and his advisors were truly angling to get him a college education, he should have stayed and played at Brainerd, oddly enough, the school his address zones him for. Why, you ask? Brainerd High School is a Tennessee Promise School. He would have been GUARANTEED the opportunity to get a college education at UTK, had he simply graduated and applied. This WAS NOT about getting an education. This was about FOOTBALL.

Read below (http://finaid.utk.edu/aid/scholarships/HPP.shtml) Tennessee Promise Scholarship The Tennessee Promise Scholarship program is the only one of its kind in the state.

I am very impressed with the school and the coach. With all of the talk around cheating in area football right now, it is nice to see a school and a coach willing to emphasize character over a winning record. This school system would improve exponentially if we held administrators/teachers/coaches and kids accountable for our their behaviors more often than their athletic records.
