    It has been an interesting week of sports talk on Knoxville radio. One of my favorite call in segments has been "what was the worst decision Hamilton has made?"

    The answers ranged from...
    Firing Fulmer
    Hiring Kiffin
    The interview questioning Pearl's return right before the NCAA tourney
    Firing Pearl
    Hiring Pearl
    Raising student ticket prices to football games
    Hiring Buzz Peterson
    Counting his own buyout, $10.4MM UT has paid/is paying out under his watch to former coaches

    Never had an issue [that i'm aware of] come from the Women's side of sports at UT.. so that's something.

    I believe that's correct. Also, every single women's sport has won at least one SEC title in the last decade except for outdoor track and field.

    That includes:

    basketball
    cross country
    indoor track and field
    soccer
    softball
    volleyball

    I miss sports radio in Knoxville.

    The mouthpiece for the university.

    LOL! Could it get worse than Hamilton, though? When I heard that segment about his worst decisions, I thought, "what was his best decision?" Outside of stepping down, I couldn't name one in hindsight.
