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.

    Has anyone got the data on what Ivan Maisel from ESPN is saying here? Soooo, it looks like the 106,000 people who show up at Neyland Stadium is subsidizing the academic programs at UT much more than any other SEC program. While I'm all for the athletic program to assist the university as a whole, if it is doing so at the University's insistance at the cost of the football program that is the golden goose for the academic program..... then we have a vicious cycle that will spiral downward eventually. Here's the quote; "One of the biggest reasons that Tennessee athletic director Dave Hart pushed his chips behind Butch Jones is he believed that Jones had the chops to serve as an advocate in the Hart’s attempt to change the culture on campus. The university administration has used the athletic department as an ATM, saddling it with financial responsibilities that the Vols’ SEC competitors don’t have. Hart wanted his new coach to be able -- and willing -- to explain how that financial burden translates onto the field."
