    Dude went from OU to SC now back to OU. Weird.

    Possibly not that weird with there being a coaching change in there, plus the realization that the grass may not be greener.

    I haven’t been to Norman, but no matter where you’re leaving the grass probably ain’t greener in Columbia, South Carolina.

    Hayden wants to be closer to home and in his home state. That is really the only factor as I understand it. Its far from a done deal but its a possibility he will be in orange next year.

    Was intended as sort of sarcastic but don’t think it came across this way. Obviously it’s a big decision for a kid but if what you said is true it’s really a no brainer.

    This ain’t the Tennessee of the 2010’s and Ryan Day ain’t that great of a coach.

    It's always a tough move to switch schools but I agree I think it would be an easy decision.

    Columbia makes Knoxville look like Paris. It’s a dump.

    You have to think that at least 1 of those 208 DBs will be a Vol next year.

    I’ve lived in a bunch of cities across the Southeast and have covered basically every corner traveling. Comparing Knoxville to Columbia is shameful. By almost any measure.

    *I do travel to Columbia in July/August for work and while that does color my views somewhat, point stands, it’s a shitty, hot, smelly dump.

    I've often thought a lot of the Knoxville hate out there exists based on opinions formed when Knoxville was more of a podunk, less modernly developed city than it is now. As someone who has lived in Knoxville within the past decade and has spent time in nearly all the other SEC cities I simply fail to see what is wrong with Knoxville that makes the "Knoxville is a shithole" tropes a thing with a lot of folks. It's a legit city besides the SEC university located there with actual things to see, do and eat. You don't have to be a drunken 18-22 year old undergrad student to enjoy living there like you do in most SEC towns. Market Square alone is one of the nicest features any SEC city possesses. Gay street and Old City is also an excellent little stretch of downtown Knoxville living. Always has reminded me of a setup you'd see somewhere in a charming European town.
