Hughes Off Football Team, Vol Fans Should Read The Book Of Job

Tennessee sports fans have had it pretty rough in recent years.  As we often say when a school gets slammed with NCAA sanctions, you can’t help but feel sorry for all the good fans of that school.  Well, we certainly feel bad about what Vol fans have had to endure.

Phillip Fulmer’s program declined to the point that he was replaced.  Lane Kiffin had a cup of coffee in Knoxville, broke a few rules, and then caught the last train for the coast.  Bruce Pearl was a shining star until he decided to lie about a barbecue at this house.  Wins in football and basketball turned to losses.  The national press has whipped the school and its leadership for the handling of most of the above.

And it seems to be getting worse.

For those Vol fans pleased that Mike Hamilton is exiting his athletic director’s post, writers like David Climer of The Tennessean are offering up frightening warnings about what kind of search UT chancellor Jimmy Cheek might run.

And just days after learning that Tennessee’s only returning starter at linebacker — Herman Lathers — had fractured his ankle and will miss the start of the season, Big Orange backers today got news that defensive tackle Montori Hughes is no longer on their favorite team.

While Derek Dooley wouldn’t specify why Hughes has been booted, the player has had academic issues in the past.  He’s also been penalized for the dreaded “violation of team rules.”

For Tennessee fans, things figure to turn around at some point.  But until that day, it might be wise to thumb through the Book of Job.  Perhaps you can relate.
