UK is recruiting him heavily and he appears to be interested in them beyond mere lip service. But when it came down to it, he was pulling for UM.

I was having a discussion with my friend after we saw that that Billy Donovan had gotten a contract extension worth 2.2 million per year. I was arguing that coaches and students are similar in the fact that both get "scholarships" since both can take classes free of charge. She argued that the students are getting degrees not just free classes but I don't agree with that point, since students aren't guaranteed degrees, just that the classes are free. So if students and coaches both get access to free classes but coaches are getting paid millions of dollars, the NCAA and universities can't really point to the scholarship as a fair form of compensation to the students. But the main question I have for the board is was I correct in my assertation that coaches can take classes for free? I'm not one to be too prideful to admit I'm wrong plus I'm interested as this may change my point of view on the whole athlete compensation thing (but probably not). Thanks guys.
A fire killed 2 firefighters four doors down from Tom's house (mansion? estate?), and he witnessed the whole thing. He is such a class act -- get his comments and reaction.
