Since B.J. did meet with Mike Hamilton and explain his reasons, they (coach and Hamilton) should not pretend that they did not know what was happening. B.J. is a fine outstanding student, athlete and young man. Kiffin's character record to date is not a positive one. To actually lose an outstanding ( stats included) Tennessee athlete speaks volumes of Kiffin coaching decisions. Please send him back to the NFL where he belongs.
I remember attending games last year where fans with brown bags on their heads would boo the coaches and players due to the lack luster football season. Looks like a repeat for this year! Perhaps Kiffin and UT can purchase orange bags this year and go ahead and start passing them out right after the quarterback tosses that first interception. The stats speak for themselves even if Kiffin has chosen to ignore the obvious. Shame on you coach for demonstrating the lack of respect to your players that you demand for yourself. The devoted UT Fans deserve to have a better season and the players that have worked their butts off deserve the chance to prove to us fans what they can do on the field. Simply holding out for the next recruit does not satisfy my desire to have a winning season and give this young man the opportunity to win the fans back and bring back a little pride to the fan base. You will have an uphill battle. But then again, you made that choice, didn't you?
