    Re: "the palace coup" as stated in the story.

    Since Majors's ousting in Nov '92, Dr. Johnson didn't ever shy away from taking the blame. I believe that Johnson, without naming names, signaled that there were a lot of important people from all sides that thought Majors had become too big and they were willing to use their influence and political capital to put the gears in motion at the first opportunity that came along.

    This is completely different than Fulmer in '08 where there had been a lengthy vendetta against Fulmer by Hamilton.

    There are some people, I don’t do this with everyone, but I hear their voice in my head when I read quotes; Johnny Majors is one of those people

    A War and Peace audiobook voiced by Johnny would be interesting.

    That article about college football players recognizing the power they now have and learning when and when not to use it is outstanding.

    How did we get a writer like this in Knoxville? He is a gem.

    Everyone is worried about losing Pruitt to Alabama, I'm scared Ubben will leave for another college town
