    UT pays all their players.

    No one is gonna put on that ugly orange and play for a garbage team for free.

    But Foster sucks!!!

    You shut your wh*re mouth.

    But for reel doe, I love UT with a burning passion. They'll be fine in a few years. Foster still sucks, though.

    This story is an interesting one.. he claimed he had no money for food, yet the school provides him with 3 meals a day. The cafeterias are closed at night, however. Perhaps he went hungry after nigh games. I dunno. The NCAA won't take any action on UT for this one, though.

    Exactly. What could they get out of them? I've heard they had no money.

    Well they could punish UT by putting them on probation or something, but that's not the point. If the NCAA takes action, it will bring more light to the claims that student athletes might be going hungry from time to time. That would create sympathy for the student athletes and push towards them getting compensated.

    Plus, the money involved in this case was so little, it wouldn't be worth the time and money for the NCAA to investigate and put UT through court. Either way, the NCAA would lose their precious money by getting involved.

    I would say every college has had players that take money, regardless the source, just the majority keep their mouth shut.

    Foster and all these ex-vols need to keep their mouths shut.

    I don't live in Knoxville. F that. I'm there for school and school only. Once I graduate, I'm done with that city.

    Not gonna transfer (again) just because I hate the city. I like the school, not the team.

    Usually it's the other way around.. I can't stand the school, but I love the team. That seems to be the common consensus.

    So what if we've sucked for a few years? We've had great tradition, and 3 bad years in a row is one of the all time lows for UT. That's pretty good compared to most schools.
