20 Years ago, on 6 Jan 1994 Tonya Harding and her posse took out Nancy Kerrigan’s knee. The parallel of this white trash attack and the march of the Cromptonites and their campaign against Eric Ainge was creepy.

The Cromptonites were a group of Tennessee fans that hated Ainge, his frosted tipped hair and his diamond studded ear rings. Ainge was kid from the west coast that just didn’t get the Tennessee tradition. The Cromptonites advocated replacing Ainge with Crompton, no matter what.

Jon Crompton was the mountain kid from North Carolina that had orange blood pumping through his veins. Read this archived Volquest message board post:

"I believe that powerful young Crompton is going to cash in his Certificate of Deposit at the Bank of Fulmer where the interest continues to accrue, and is compounded continuously. Ignore last year’s INT’s, botched snaps, errant handoffs and throws off the back foot, this kid has guts and a cannon, he will be the best QB in the SEC . I am planning on making reservations to Atlanta to watch my beloved Vols apply more smack down onto hapless Bama in the SEC-CG. Accordingly, Jon Crompton should make reservations to New York."

I miss those days.

No I am not the real Jai Eugene from LSU. Or as Jai is known at Tennessee as "the one that got away". I am retired Army Aviator that happens to have a blog that produces sometimes relevant Tennessee Vols content. Sure those dicks over DawgSports and the MGOBlog say we are a little "analysis challenged". Maybe it had something to do with me helping to defend their first amendment rights overseas while they were out shopping at the mall. Anyway, we have been around since 2006. Been mentioned in GoVolsxtra, Sports illustrated, ESPN, the Atlanta Journal and Deadspin to name but a few major left wing sports media that seem to think we do a pretty good job.
