A long time ago Rutgers met Princeton on a college campus and competed in what is considered the first college football game. I don’t how many attended. I don’t know if there were coaches. I doubt there were cheerleaders and I know there wasn’t any television coverage. Sometimes that televisions coverage proves itself to have little to no understanding of what this game really is about.
Gene Chizik like others in the national media recently have taken shots at Vols, calling us idiots and rednecks and hillbillies, (which I personally I find offensive) questioning our actions towards our incompetent athletic department. Their view is the generally same; that it is unreasonable for a fan base to have such power in the determining the coach that is going to lead their team.
So this is how it works now? Search gets leaked. Hire isn’t popular. Angry fans light up social media. AD’s and Presidents wilt. Fans 7, Administration 0. Circus ensues. Suddenly, you’re on choice #5. Hmmm. #dotherightthing
