Tennessee Athletic Director Resigns

8 Jun

Tennessee athletic director Mike Hamilton announces his resignation just days before NCAA hearing.
Hamilton said “I’ve never experienced more challenge or frustration in my 26 years of professional life than during the last 18 months.”

The last 18 months have had both the football and basketball teams in the midst of national controversy. Head football coach Lane Kiffin and basketball coach Bruce Pearl was fired and put the university under review by the NCAA infractions committee because of possible violations.

Hamilton however did go on to say, “I accept the responsibility for the things that have led to some of these challenges. Ultimately, I think today was inevitable based upon today’s operating environment in college athletics.”

USC Gets Lamar Dawson

2 Feb

Mr. Football in Kentucky, Lamar Dawson, says he will be going to the University of Southern California. His pick of USC was heart breaking news to Kentucky, Tennessee and Oregon, all who was heavily recruiting him.

Dawson is a 6-foot-4 235-pound linebacker with great athletic talent. However, the more important part to me is that he has an 3.85 GPA. Dawson talent as a great player helped his team win the Class 4-A championship. He had 158 tackles and 4 interceptions this past season.

He will be a huge asset to Monte Kiffin defense.

He is the 20th commit in Mark Richt’s 2011 recruiting class.

He has also urged the remaining recruits to come to Georgia to play with him.

Weekend College Football Preview

12 Nov

This week in college football has been a rocky road. And at the completion of the week we will find ourselves having to watch a bunch of unappealing games. No I won’t consider the Auburn game as one of this weeks must anticipated games. Mr. Newton on the other hand will… However, there is a game in the SEC this week that intrigue me a little bit. The Tennessee vs. Ole Miss game is underrated but it would be great. Hahaha…that was a joke however, I will allow you to see the preview. Other games that are really important at least slightly are the Virginia Tech vs. North Carolina, Oklahoma State vs. Texas, Penn State vs. Ohio State (game of the week), TCU vs. San Diego State, Oregon vs. California games.
