I was reading Randy Smith's article on the underwhelming hire of USM Coach Donnie Tyndall. UTK AD Dave Hart had said he was looking for a coach with a "proven track record." While emphasizing Donnie's winning success, Randy Smith seemed to gloss over Tyndall's "proven track record" of breaking the NCAA rules with only a bare mention.
One would think after undergoing the Bruce Pearl firing and NCAA "Show Cause" ruling keeping Pearl out of coaching, that UTK would choose a coach with a "proven track record" of not cheating and violating NCAA rules.
I suggest that UTK fans take a moment to read the NCAA ruling and see the deal was that made at the crossroads in Mississippi yesterday for their new coach.
