I don't believe in 'em.
His article in today's Athletic about the final day of the season in 1998 is solid gold.
Such memories. Even though I fell asleep during halftime of our game. In my defense, I was 11, it had been a long day of football, and I was pretty sure there was no way we were losing to Mississippi State.
He just posted a one on one interview with Tyson Helton.
I doubt everything between he and Pruitt was rosy but it sounds like it was a pretty good relationship between the two
Helton is too high character to say anything negative.
Lot of detail for it to be fictional
I'm willing to buy and send a plaque to Ubben as the 8th's sports writer of the year. Does anyone object to this? Should we just confirm it with a poll?
Not necessary. Go ahead and make purchase.
I'll chip in
Poll not necessary.
as a paying member of the athletic, I support this.
I want a poll just so we can e-mail a link to the results to the losers with a "Sorry, but you didn't win" stock e-mail.
All of the other choices are Jimmy Hyams
Woo buddy, some shots fired early. Great article though.
[uck fay] Butch Jones
Pruitt seemed to have hired off the field guys for specific recruits
Haha I knew his name had to come from Boys II Men’s Wanye.
Ubben weighs in on the OC search today. Talks about Osovet and how he got on UT’s staff to begin with. Has good things to say about him. Interesting read, as usual.
Ubben’s article that just posted in the Athletic about the 7 takeaways from ESD for UT is fantastic. That dude is truly gifted at what he does. He can write about UT without being a homer but without being unnecessarily negative either. He’s like the John Ward of Tennessee sportswriters.
