a quick run down of the story says that several, i've heard the number 7, football players from the university of tennessee were involved in a bar fight last night which ended in the assault on an off-duty knoxville police officer. one player has been charged so far, Da'Rick Rogers a freshman 5* receiver.

Can the NCAA do anything about this ridiculousness going on at Tennessee? Seems like some discipline should be in order. I mean, I know it's not something as MAJOR as over-practicing...

It would be really funny to see an MSU-UT matchup in the Gator Bowl if either team can play well enough to make it there.  MSU would have to be in the fifth slot or the sixth if the BT gets an extra BCS bid.  Detractors of both teams would have the quintessential "field day" in the days leading up to the game.  I love railing on MSU, but UT is even an easier target than MSU because "Volunteeer orange" is almost the color of stereotypical prison jumpsuits.

As for UT's response to the beatdown, I am guessing that contributors get a "second chance" while non-contributors are kicked off the team as "examples."  This will make UT and MSU even more alike.
