Many of the problems that Tennessee deals with are a direct result of the character and judgment that is being allowed at many of the high schools that our athletes are being recruited from. These kids have been exposed to marijuana while in high school and they can not simply stop once they enroll at TN. Its sad to see these kids throw away a chance to get a quality education or potentially millions of dollars with contracts in basketball or football. I am a loyal fan, but its time for TN to take some pointers from Coach Pat Summit; after all the reason you are attending college is to obtain your education. I just hope these coaches are stressing this and not just winning a basketball or football game. I would love to see some of our former athletes step up if allowed by the administration and help mentor these guys. Many times these kids don't have that mentor or figure in their lives. UT athletes time to man up!
