On a Hallowed hill in Tennessee
Like Beacon shining bright
This time it wasn’t Lane Kiffin or the football players embarrassing the University of Tennessee and its fans. This time Bruce Pearl’s guys are doing it.
According to Heather Harrington of Knoxville’s Sports Animal (via twitter), “Just confirmed from KPD officials four UT mens basketball players arrested on marajuana possession charges and weapons charges. KPD source confirmed the players are Melvin Goins, Tyler Smith, Cameron Tatum and Brian Williams… #volsarrested.”
“The players are facing misdemeanor weapon and drug charges, according to a source with knowledge of the situation,” according to the Knoxville News Sentinel.
This highlights the lawless culture present throughout the Volunteer athletic department. From HOstesses to arrests to Lane Kiffin, there are some important questions for Volunteer fans to answer.
Is it any shock that the NCAA has investigated the recruiting practices in Knoxville? How long can Tennessee’s athletic director hold his job when you have systemic problems throughout your athletic department?
Can Tennessee do anything to stop the perception that Knoxville has become the new Miami?
These arrests following the football player arrests and the embarrassing actions of Lane Kiffin have dimmed the shining Beacon on that hill. The Volunteers are a disgrace to the SEC. Cleanup your program before the conference office is forced to do it for you.
