Is Vol's AD destroying the UT football progam ?

It is perplexing to observe how Mike Hamilton has deflected the media, and loyal fan, firestorm away from him like a non-stick skillet bought on isle 11 during a blue light special.

Mike Hamilton negotiated a deal with Lane Kiffen that, in the corporate business world I was part of many years ago when younger, would have Mike looking for another site of employment.  No need for an exit interview by a subordinate staffer.  No questions asked.  Security escort to the door, with personal belonging being carried inspected.  Oh, and don't bother using us as a reference.  Ever.  In fact, you can expect an unnamed source to leak details of your poor judgement and negotiating skills.

Lane's buyout is, was, to the tune of $ 800,000. 

Lane's contract payout in the unfortuanate situation of being fired, or as some say, relieved of duties, was, is, to the tune of $ 7,500,000.

From a simplistic business analysis, the checks and balances were, are, seriously flawed.

Lane's assistant coaches are, were, signed to multiyear agreements.   Any wonder on the hesitation of coaches approached ?  You're relegated to using coaches you don't know.  Probably don't want.  And who knows if the assistant coaches care any more.  And what of the emotional baggage these assistant coaches present to current players and those recruited by Lane's staff ?

College Football Rule Change.....Punters beware

Last year we saw the punters in college football moving about, kicking rugby style.  This year a rule change in college football will come into play that will make this a little more interesting for the defense. 

Now, if a college punter moves outside the "tackle box" and punts the football, he's fair game if hit  No roughing the punter.  No penalty flag.  And while this rule change probably won't affect special teams who can get the punt off, the days of scrambling around have just got more interesting.

Of interest is that Justin Tucker, one of the punters for Texas who also handles kickoff duties, now punts rugby style with either foot.  While that doesn't sound like a big deal, last year he pinned other teams deep numerous times.  At my age, I sometimes wonder which shoe goes on which foot.
