Ive said this before and I will say it again. BJ got passed over for Crompton by Fulmer, Clawson, Kiffin, Chaney, and Reaves. Wake up Chatt, your boy AINT that good. You can keep on spewing this crap about how good he is, but quitting UT for Duke or UTC is proof in the pudding. Those are 2 pathetic choices and you dont even know if Cut will extend an offer from Duke. I hate to see BJ leave but I also hate that he will never play meaningful football again.
Man, you guys are drinking some serious BJ Kool-Aid. Alot of the readers are wrong about Fulmer being the recruiter of BJ. It was Cutcliffe who saw potential in BJ and he was only lightly recruited by anyone else. I hate to think that Dave Clawson the offensive coordinator, could never convince Fulmer to start BJ or even move him up the depth chart. There was never any rumblings at all last year in Knoxville about starting BJ until after Jon and Nick flopped. Only then did people in Knoxville start saying "what the hell, give this other kid a try."
Bottom line is, Kiffin gets a pass this year, because of crappy cards he was dealt. He gets a pass next year if he recruits a top notch QB for 2010, because we know, Nick isnt going to take us anywhere (and neither would BJ). We are waiting 2 years right now for a new leader to emerge from the 2010 recruiting class. No one in Knoxville wants to pin their hopes on a QB that got passed over by 2 half assed quarterbacks (Crompton & Stephens), 2 head coaches (Fulmer & Kiffin), 2 offensive coordinators (Clawson & Chaney), and a quarterback coach (Reaves.)
Come on Chatt, isnt that Kool-Aid just a little bitter?
