Randy Sanders was hired as HC of East Tenn State's fledgeling football program three months ago; word around here is that he has been suspended for violation of University policy. How is that for quick?

Scuttlebutt is it's for hitting a player in the helmet because he wouldn't take a knee. That could be completely innocuous or really bad. It seems like the admin. leave is being done in an overabundance of caution more than anything.

Hope they have some serious eye witness testimony (either way). That could range from so bad he should be fired on the spot to so innocuous that no one should even say a word, to every spot in between.

I thought Frank Kush was dead.

Ever since the football incident at Kansas and other places, in today's society, you can't use the attention-getting tactics that worked twenty years ago (for better or worse). My son's college baseball team had an incident where the head coach tried enforce some team discipline, the player took exception and a shoving match ensued. The head coach was suspended indefinitely and ultimately quit because the school would not reinstate him. I personally think today's rules unfairly penalize the coach, but that's how we have "evolved." Be interested to see what the real reason was.

I just want to say I am glad smartphones weren’t around 30 years ago.

An interesting tidbit (not worth anything, but sort of ironic). My daughter had a forensics tournament at Morristown-Hamblen East High school this past weekend; I was there as a judge. As I was walking down the hall I noted their "Hall of Fame," where they show off alumni that succeeded and made a name for themselves. The only one I recognized was Randy Sanders...
