sadly it's the Brandon effect...the Ford family has too much involvement in the program and short sightedness in decision making...They need to be more like the Kraft family and simply hand out money, sit in the box, celebrate with the victories, and collect at the gate...you hire football people to conduct football business.

Former Vol backup quarterback "Jim Bob" Cooter, whose real name is James Robert Cooter, is facing aggravated burglary charges after allegedly getting into bed with a woman after climbing through a window of her Fort Sanders apartment, according to an arrest warrant. The warrant says Cooter climbed through woman's window on Franklin Station Way, stripped down to his underwear and got into bed with the woman Saturday. She called police, who found him in her bed and arrested him on an aggravated burglary charge. He was released the following day on a $10,000 bond and will be arraigned on July 13.
