Wow, what a way to overreact to a coach leaving. Understanding this was only 1 year in a long term deal, but I do not think that decision justifies the behavior that I have heard about. Everything from taking a pee on a Lane Kiffin shirt, to burning mattresses.
I am all for passion when it comes to your favorite team, hence the majority of this blog’s topics. But I would never be so irresponsible to act in this manner. It sounds like this is more, or less, the students acting out and not so much the community of Knoxville. For those of you that know me, I had similar passions about the Supersonics when I actually gave a rats ass about the NBA. That drive and passion has long since gone away, even before the team left.
Speaking of coaching changes, sounds like UM found their man. I do not know much about him. He did work for Don Reed at PSU awhile back, so I am not sure if that is a good thing or just a thing. We will see what the next few years brings to Griz nation.
