Ex-UGA LB recruit planning to attend Tennessee’s spring game

UGA's loss could be Tennessee's gain ... if the Volunteers offer and Moody accepts (Tennessee athletics)

UGA's loss could be Tennessee's gain ... if the Volunteers offer, and Moody accepts it (Tennessee athletics)

Georgia coach Mark Richt granted ex-UGA LB recruit Dexter Moody an “unconditional” release, meaning he could play for any school. Moody told the AJC he could end up playing for Lane Kiffin at Tennessee.

The 6-foot-2, 210-pound Moody said he was invited to Tennessee’s Orange and White game on Saturday by the Volunteers. ”Me and my dad are planning on going up there,” Moody said. “They talked liked they were going to offer me a scholarship. I don’t know. I guess we’ll see. They just want to meet me in person and everything.”

Moody, who earned All-America honors last year at Emanuel County Institute, said he has had contact with several schools, including Florida, Memphis, Central Michigan and Troy, since breaking ties with Georgia last month. Moody said he has been offered by Marshall, and that he is very encouraged by Tennessee’s Lance Thompson, who coaches linebackers for the Volunteers.

“Coach Thompson said they need some linebackers really bad,” Moody said. “I’m definitely very interested in Tennessee. It wouldn’t be bad to go there and be able to play against Georgia every year. That would be something, taking out some of my feelings against the team that released me. I think it would be fun.”

Moody claims he has no hard feelings against Georgia. He said he hasn’t had any contact with the Bulldogs since being informed of his release by UGA assistant Jon Fabris. “We thought Coach Richt might call to talk about everything, but I haven’t heard from anybody else from Georgia. It’s no big deal. I wasn’t worried too much about it. I’m pretty cool with everything. I can sign with any other school that offers me. I guess it will just work out somewhere else for me.”

NCAA rules prohibit college coaches from commenting on prospective student-athletes. Moody spurned offers from Florida and South Carolina, among others, to sign with his homegrown favorite, UGA. He was released by Richt after an incident at school, according to Georgia officials.

Moody is ranked as the nation’s No. 8 outside linebacker by Scout, and No. 17 by Rivals. “I’m excited for [Moody],” said his ECI teammate, Washaun Ealey. “He’s a great player, and hopefully Tennessee or another school will give him a chance.”

    Good for this kid. I hope people will give him a second chance. Whoever signs him will probably need to make it very clear that he will be on a short leash for a good while. I hope this kid overcomes his setbacks and turns all of them into a springboard for a bright future in college, wherever that may be.

    As a Dawg fan, he has me shaking in my boots. He should realize Richt released him UNCONDITIONALLY and be appreciative for his second chance at being an SEC Div. 1 player. His character will come through soon enough. Then it will be obvious to all.

    Seems like they’ll take anyone up in Knoxville. There is a good reason UGA released him (going off on a teacher, flipping her desk and threatening/cussing her). Recruiting thugs like this will be the downfall of Kiffin.

    I hope he get’s it together. I strongly doubt he will get into any school anytime soon. A military college or a prep school really needs to screw his head on right. A lot of people in the know have been wary about his prospects of getting into school or staying out of trouble for some time now. When he got released from his LOI from UGA, it wasn’t a shock, sad to say. This is in no way an indictment against Twin City or ECI, but with geography being a major factor, his high school was totally ill prepared in getting Dexter where he needed to be. In simple terms, he didn’t take high school seriously, and his ego has clearly never been checked. He even had some disparaging words after UGA had no choice to but to renege his scholarship, even though it was his well publicized actions that put him where he was. Hopefully, JC, and Washaun fair better, and restore some credibility to ECI, and Twin City.

    12 NATIONAL TITLES – 21 SEC TITLES!!!

    Very Disturbing that this CHILD (I would say young man – but he is obviously not even near being a man) has not taken any responsibility for his actions.

    Quotes from this and previous interviews include:
    “things happen for a reason”
    “I am cool with that”
    “taking out my feeLings for the team that released me”

    I guess if I got drunk – wrecked my car – killed a family – I could justify it by saying, “things happen for a reason.”

    Please – what an immature PUNK A$$ piece of TRASH.

    Fortunately or sometimes Unfortunately, all schools (including BAMA)have signed and given kids a second chance. It makes me wonder, how many “SECOND CHANCES” has this DELINQUENT all ready received due to him being a football talent.

    Very hard to root for a KID that contiues to make flippant comments about a school that:
    – gave him an opportunity
    – laid out behavior guidelines for him due to past issues
    – held him accountable
    – gave him an unconditional release so tht he WOULD BE FREE TO GO ANYWHERE.

    For this Kids sake – he should go to a Military Prep School for some much needed discipline and character building – this would help him to become a man.

    I hope that one day this CHILD will look back and realize that he alone is the reason UGA released him – also, if Tennessee does offer this kid – I hope that they can straighten him out.

    “It would be fun taking out my feelings on the school that released me’ (even though they released him unconditionally so he could sign with any program stupid enough to offer him) but “I don’t have any hard feelings toward them”. What an idiot. And the sad thing is he doesn’t even realize he’s an idiot. Have a nice life Dex. P.S. It’s not going to be as much fun as you think getting you’re a** whipped by UGA if you do go to Tennagayzee.

    Here goes Ga again making comments against Tennessee. Once again it would be the same comments if he were going to Florida or Alabama. All 3 schools have a tradition of putting it to GA. Yes Ga you have the overall win loss record against UF (not in the past 2 decades) but the other 2 own you !

    Tennessee hasn’t offered him anything yet. Just an invite to the O & W game. I trust Kiffin so far in his recruiting. Kiffen yanked DJ Hunter’s offer once it was learned that he had some maturity issues (he shot a random kid on the street with a BB gun). Kiffin knows who to stay away from. I’m sure the visit is for the old eyeball test. If the kid kid has issues he will not be a Vol under this new regime. This ain’t Phil’s team any more where problems are swept under the rug and players get an automatic pass.

    Before any of you UF or UGA guys start casting stones about the character of Vol players just take a peek in your own back yard. I think UGA had somewhere around 10 kids in trouble last year for various reasons. Heck one kid actually beat up a poor flower pot at the hospital while his teamate was being treated for injuries sustained in a bar fight. We all know the drill. It comes with the territory in the SEC.

    G,

    Most anybody can go back in time and pick a point in time to make their argument. You can say UGA beat Bama 3 of 4. Of course you ignore the fact that those 3 wins came against probation ridden and scholarship reduced Alabama teams.

    Taking us on when we’re at full strength as you find out last year on blackout night is a whole different thing. But I can also pick a point in time such as alltime and say we’ve beaten you more than you’ve beaten us by a double digit margin 36-25.

    It seems you like to go back and live in the past, as long as its the past that benefits your argument of course. Bragging rights should either be for 1 year or for all time. Otherwise anyone can play your little game of picking a point in time to suit their argument.

    I’m curious and I wonder if you use the same consistency when you look at other programs. For instance do you always say, ” Yeah, we beat UT last year but the’ve beaten us 2 out of 3 with the 2 wins being blowouts.” Or do you like to say , “Well, we’ve split the last 2 with Florida or we own the overall series with the gators” instead of saying “We’ve lost 16 out of 19″. They own us. I’m just curious if you’re consistent.

    Knelson, the only school that can even come close to saying they ‘own’ uga is bama b/c of the overall series. Any series that is within 10 (or 3 as in the case of the vols) cannot be deemed as ‘owned’. Btw, as far as character kids at UT, it is called the FULMER CUP for a reason.

    Bama12, Georgia fans want respect that they don’t deserve. They’ll talk that trash, but their team very rarely backs it up on the field. Sure, they’ll say “We beat UT last year” but they forget about the previous 2 (BLOWOUTS, I might add) or that they beat us 4 in a row at one point. They fail to mention that we have beaten them 9 in a row at one point, and 8-0 against ‘em in the 90’s. Go Vols!

    I don’t care what any of you Tennessee fans say, this does not look good for your program to invite this thug to your campus, offered or not. Remember Moody, UGA runs an offense that utilizes a fullback. Our fullbacks are big and strong and love to hit linebackers.

    honest question here, and it has nothing to do about dexter moody. can a bama fan please explain the “12 national titles” claim that i keep hearing? most records show bama having 9 national titles, and of those 9, only three were undisputed (three undefeated seasons without spliting the title). the other 6 were either a year in which bama split the national championship, lost their bowl game, or both (i believe one year they lost to notre dame in the bowl game and ending up splitting the national championship with the irish). what’s the deal?

    Dexter was given a plan for academics and behavior. He was failing short in both. After the last incident, UGA offered him the chance to go to Ga Military Academy for a year or so and then go to UGA a later date. He said he did not want to go to UGA EVER!! This tells me a couple of things, Dexter is probably not going to qualify and UGA felt GMA was the quickest way to straighten out this attitude problem now. I think we have all seen that Dexter is not mature enough to accept the opportunities that being provided him, because he is being very foolish. I think some other schools are seeing the grades and backing off of him at this stage in the game, why take that on? There are probably a few others that are wise to the attitude problems too. They are tired of being top of the FULMER CUP BOARD.

    Signalmountainvol,

    Thanks for echoing my point. We’ve beaten UT 2 in a row but you don’t hear me talking a whole lotta smack about that. Why? Because I also remember that we lost 7 in a row to the vols and after breaking that streak the series has been roughly tied. People should show a healthy respect for their actual accomplishments rather than just picking points in time to suit their argument. Not just dawg fans but really all of us. I also won’t talk smack about Auburn since they did in fact dominate us 6 in a row before we beat them again.

    Law dawg,

    You are correct. We had this argument several times on this post. Bama has 4 consensus titles and 5 split titles between the 2 major polls of the time according to some stats that Atlanta gator compiled. The true # is really about 9 as far as national titles. The school claims 12, the NCAA official media guide says 17, but the true # should be about 9. 7 on the extreme low end, 17 on the extreme generous end using any poll, but most people count 8-9. I’ve just been using 12 titles as my handle for so long that I don’t want to change. Probably should though.

    In reference to being voted national champs and then losing your bowl game Bama does have a national title via that route. But the reverse has also happened to Bama and we legitimately felt we were robbed of national titles in 1966 especially, 1977, and perhaps a couple of other years. It all washes out as far as that is concerned.

    Several books have been actually been written about the denial of a national title for the 66 team which Bear Bryant considered his greatest ever and his favorite team. It was also possible the most statistically dominant team of all time but while this team destroyed opponents all season, posted 8 shutouts, outscored people something like 277-30, Bama started out 3rd and stayed 3rd all season behind ND and Mich St which played to a 10-10 tie in what the media had hyped and dubbed “the game of the century”.

    The way I figure it over the last 100 years Alabama is the winningest program in college football with 754 wins to NDs 750. Common sense would dictate that we legitimately have 7-9 legit titles if that is the case. Also, another good measure is that OU leads the nation with 30 double digit winning seasons with us 2nd at 29. OU is credited I believe with 8 ncs so it would make sense that we also have 7-9 just out of common sense. Lastly, in the 3 qtr centuries 1926-1950, 1951-1975, and 1976-2000 Bama was 2nd, 3rd, and 3rd in each of those quarter centuries in win totals. Common sense would again dictate that with that type of overall success that the true, legit number is around 7-9.

    Anyway, just to clear things up 9 is probably a good, realistic, legit number as several of us on here have agreed.

    Moody is going to Knoxville so the staff can meet and get to know him. If Kiffin doesn’t like what he sees he won’t offer him, IMO. He won’t just keep the kid because he has talent; ask Demetrice Morley.

    12 NATIONAL TITLES – 21 SEC TITLES!!!

    Please withold from finger pointing – all schools have had their embarrassing moments with their “student athletes.”

    This is a true fact – the area in the brain that effects decision making is not fully developed until the person in about 25 years old. This helps explain why most teens and young adults in their early twenties make behavioral decisions without caring about long term consequences. This is a fact.

    Let’s be honest – how many of you did stupid things in college or in your late teens – early twenties. We look back and laugh at our Fraternity days – but the reality of it is – we did some pretty immature and stupid stuff. I guess that’s part of growing up.

    Now if an athlete does the stupid stuff – get’s caught – it’s published in USA TODAY.

    I am not making excuses – I am merely pointing out that most young adults do not become “adults” until their mid-20’s.

    NOW HERE IS WHAT BURNS OLE BAMA STAN:
    To me – there is a big difference in “stupid stuff” – and flipping a table and threatening a teacher. I see the Moody kid as a potential Jamar Hornsby – a kid with a REAL CHARACTER ISSUE. I hope that this kid becomes successful – and makes millions in the NFL.

    In case you do not know the saga of Jamar Hornsby
    - His teammate and teammates’ girlfriend were killed in a motorcycle accident.
    - Jamar got the deceased girls credit card and proceeded to charge several thousand dollars of gas and food at convenient stores – for several months. Over 70 charges.
    - Urban kicked him off the team immediately following his arrest.
    - Plea bargained down to misdemeanor – and avoided jail time -paid big time fines.
    - On probation.

    But wait – here’s more:
    - Jamar wound up at a Junior or Community college and received national honors for his play.
    - Several teams, including Alabama and Ole Miss pursued Jamar’s services. (I was very embarrassed for Alabama that we would consider this kid). Let someone else offer him a second chance.
    - Signed LOI with Ole Miss – which needs immediate help in the secondary.

    But Wait……here’s more!!!!!
    - Jamar – with all of his “SECOND” chances in life – was charged with Felony assault and misdemeanor petit larceny after beating up a guy at a McDonald’s in Starkville MS. The victim had a backended the car Jamar was in at a drive through – a frigging fender bender.
    – Jamar has now violated his probation (could face jail time) and faces jail time on the new charges.
    – Ole Miss Coach Houston Nutt may release Jamar from his scholarship pending his own investigation.

    Are you kidding me?????

    Again – big difference in inmature studid stuff and real character issues – let’s hope for the best for Moody.

Kiffin has cleaned shop up in Knoxville, just ask Morley and about 5 others. UT is going 110% rigt now and if you cant hang, take a hike. This Mody kid has been invited to the O&W game, thats it. He will quickly realize what its going to take at UT, and if he is man enough for the challange then I will welcome him.

    All I can say is, typical UT BS. Moody is a spoiled kid who has been pampered due to his potential and he thinks the world owes him and rules do not apply to him. If any other student did what he did they would have been expelled and ran out of town. Then comes along UT who will be his savior until he is caught on video beating up some kid in the dorm and had has to transfer to VSU. Classy Kiffin, keep up the good work. The Great Pumpkin got fired for recruiting thugs that couldn’t win. oh yeah, for all the bleeding hearts who believe Moody deserves a second chance, I believe he does as well. Let him go play a year at a Div II school and get back down to earth. By the way, he is as dumb as a box of rocks. One more thing, arent there blogs out there for UT and GT fans?

    Why do we go through this same exercise about questionable recruits? Fact is every SEC school with the exception of Vanderbilt, recruits from the same demographic pool. As a UT fan, I don’t think Meyer, Saban, Spurrier, Richt or any coach has a lock on the, “thug,” market.

    Fact is , if we only recruited HS Honor Society members, Saturdays in the SEC would look a lot different.

    As for the crack about UT academics, last year we accepted 4,000 applicants out of 14,000 freshman apps. UT is now experiencing on a smaller scale the same effect UGA did with the implementation of the lottery.

    So my question is why did Georgia even offer this guy in the first place? Makes you wonder who else we let in that has only managed to stay under the radar since signing day. Me thinks this Moody kid is not the last. Our recruiting techniques are very questionable sometimes. Why would we even waste a scholarship offer on such a acedemically challenged immature person?

    Bama12Titles, I think most give Bama 6 ‘legit’ titles but since the NCAA hasn’t recognized a national championship for college football, it’s a moot point. Any intelligent SEC fan would recognize Bama as the frontrunner for the SEC especially with the whopping 21 SEC titles that were indeed won on the field and wasn’t a popularity contest. (see ND)

    Nelson, I’m not quite sure why you are arguing about the intelligence of Mark Richt when your coach tried a 76 yd FIELD GOAL attempt. That SHOULD get a coach fired on the spot. TN wanted anti Fulmer but I think they went too far the other direction. Be careful what you wish for, Fulmer was the 2nd winnigest coach in your history and you just ran him out of town. Please look at your history pre-Fulmer back to the Majors/Battle days.

    Its pretty funny that the Vols want to go back to the last century to declare their dominance over UGA, but our dominance over UF during the last century has no bearing. The fact is UT is struggling now to stay in the top half of the SEC east, maybe their new staff will put them there, maybe it won’t. The only head coaching experience on the staff was a complete failure. As for the Bama fans you have had a great program, wasn’t UGA’s fault you were on probation when we have won 3 of 4. But to the topic of this blog, Dexter has some anger and discipline issues, to argue that he doesn’t is wrong. He didn’t live up to his end of the scholarship which was make your grades, stay out of trouble, not real hard for most of us. But he chose to confront an authority figure, because of something Dexter did and the teacher was trying to correct the situtation. UGA made their decision, they released him to sign with anyone he wanted, UGA could have not done that, lots of schools don’t. IF he decides on UT and can correct some issues more power to him.

    clownvol (I’m sorry ctownvol)this is the funniest thing I think I have ever seen. Only someone as idiotic as you would even post a comment on my education and then post a false comment which you base your argument on (sorry….LMAO).

    Here, I will spell it out slowly for those of you that obviously have that insufficient UT education. Lets’ see, the Vols last won the SEC in 1998 (still with me), we just completed the 2008 season with yet another year without a Vol championship. Therefore (now here is where we count so this may be hard for you) UT has officially gone 10 years without an SEC Championship (See how easy that is). Also, unless you are like some other Vols that are really drunk off the moonshine, you have to realize that the streak will stretch to over a decade this year and likely for a good while beyond.

    Well, hope you have taken notes, but at least you were able to demonstrate that your vast education (LMAO) taught you how to spell the word DOG (kind of like my 2 year old). Just study the notes I gave you and you too will be able to proudly say I know what the word “decade” means as well. But hey, you are right, you also won’t have a championship for the decade of 2000-2009 either so there ya go slugger. Remember kids, a decade means a 10 year time frame. Better luck next time and thanks for playing champ (that word actually never fits a Vol, lol).

    Oh yeah, Wyoming just returned another interception for a touchdown. Maybe you guys can get one of your high school teams to stand in for the Vols next time they play Wyoming so you can break the losing streak to that powerhouse program out West that makes your out of conference schdedule so hard, LMAO.

    So, to recap, YOU HAVE OFFICIALLY BEEN OWNED, save yourself the embarassment and get off your Mom’s computer. Go Dawgs!!! Jackass!

    KNelson, actually our history includes SEC championships in 2005 and 2002. In reality, you are the one on here whose “history” only includes championships that are from a decade or more ago. But once again, thanks for playing Vols. It is just too easy with you morons.

    Also, we play Georgia Tech EVERY YEAR just like Florida plays FSU every year out of conference as our in state rival. Who is yours??? Memphis??? No wonder you have to schedule other contenders out of state to make a real schedule.

    Hey, all you puppies fans! Has any football team in the SEC, no wait a minute, in the WHOLE fricking COUNTRY, ever lost to Vandy and Kentucky in the same year?

    I’ve been owned? By you? C’mon now Nancy. You don’t really believe that. Do you? You’re a Georgia fan dude. The only thing you own is that ‘78 Fairmont that is up on blocks in your front yard down there in Swainsboro. Take notes from your 2 year old, if he is indeed yours, and learn how to spell DOG yourself. You are showing your complete ignorance. Then again, you do that every time you step out of the trailer with your UGA trucker hat on. Imbecile. (That’s kind of like a dummy in case you were wondering)

    LMAO…CtownVol, don’t be mad that you are the “imbecile” that made a post accusing me of not understanding the meaning of the word decade and then proceeded to incorrectly contend that it had not been a decade since the Vols won a championship, which I kindly helped you understand the meaning since you were obviously in need of a little help there. Its pretty common to see a Vol in need when it comes to basic intelligence as you continue to prove with every post you make (when do u want to stop embarassing yourself by the way?).

    Also, you have to understand that, unlike you hillbillies, us UGA grads are very sure that our wives give birth to our sons, but I can understand your confusion since for a Vol it is common practice to wonder if the child is really yours or not when your little sister gets pregnant (you just have to hope your seed is the one that hit the mark with all that family inbreeding you have going on).

    Also, moron, I live in Knoxville so if I ever find the urge to buy a trailer or put a car up on blocks in the front yard, I will know that the hillbillies here have started assimilating me. The funny thing about your post is that you seem to be quite the expert on those facets of redneck living (which every Vol is an expert on hillbilly quality of life).

    And yes, I believe any reasonable person would see that you have been owned and are the “ignorant” one who comes on here posting incorrect facts and calling others “uneducated” for it. I would say that is the definition of “complete ignorance” that YOU are showing. Unless you didn’t understand my explanation completely and still believe that it has not been a decade yet since your last SEC title, but then again you are a Vol and I understand counting is not a strong point for you.

    And baseball vol, how about this question: How many SEC teams have lost at home to WYOMING??? I’m still LMAO about that, I don’t know why you idiots are saying anything since your percentage for making a bowl the last 4 years is 50 percent LMAO….No, wait, I don’t want to start talking percentages, ctownvol might get a headache having to think that hard. LMAO!! Give it up man.

    Chihuahuas rule- This quote is from my earlier post. Word for word. You ready? “You are correct. UT hasn’t won a championship this decade” Now Nancy, please tell me where I said UT HAS won a championship this decade. Reading comprehension. Try it out. I was agreeing with you D.A. You Georgia “grads” are a hoot. You live in Knoxville? Well I live down here in puppy land? Ain’t that just Jim Freakin’ Dandy? Wanna switch places? UGA- We do less with more!

    My question to Georgia fans is if Tennessee finishes higher than Georgia this year is Richt on the hot seat. UT went to the SEC Champ two years ago(Almost beat the NC). Georgia hasnt been in a while. Fulmer stuck around because of his NC but Richt doesnt have one. Just saying that with a new QB you guys could be looking at 3rd or 4th in the east. Will the natives become restless?

    When you said “this” decade, you were referring to 2000-2009 and that is why your dumb ass then went to question my knowledge of the word decade because you were too stupid to think that it had now been 10 years since UT had a championship if you count back to 1998. I know what you were getting at so stop your lame attempts to play it off. Like I said, just give it up man. Also, you must truly not know anything about the national rankings of colleges if you are a Vol trying to talk trash about the value of a UGA degree (this is really making me LMAO). Even any half educated Vol (if any do exist) wouldn’t want to make that agrument because they know that UT is nowhere near the academic rankings of the University of Georgia. Therefore if that degree is supposedly useless (laughable), then they must be selling UT degrees as the latest brand of toilet paper. That is a stupid argument you don’t want to have moron. But then again, I doubt you’ve even attended anything more than a local community college. Like I said, give it up man, no one wants to hear about your expert knowledge on hillbilly living. You can save that for when you hillbillies get together for your moonshine night in the trailer park. And here’s one for you:
    UT-We have to sign the top ranked recruiting class multiple years just to hope to get to 6-6 and pray to make it to Shrevport for a bowl game lol.

    John-that is a somewhat sensible question. However Georgia WON the SEC three years ago. I would agree that UGA fans should expect to be able to get an SEC title about every three years to be reasonable (we won’t accept the 10 years or more drought the Vols live with and brag about being the runner up and “ALMOST” beating people, that is sad). With that said, if Richt has not tasted an SEC championship in the next two years I would think he may feel some heat. I love Richt and hope he retires at UGA, but yes, some UGA people would probably get a little restless. While I think it may be a bit much to expect anyone to unseat Florida with practically their whole title team returning, I fully expect Georgia to claim another SEC title and maybe more in 2010 with all the young talent we have stockpiled on our roster. The 2009 Bulldogs are more talented than people are giving them credit for and I expect them to be Florida’s only competition this year, but anytime a national title team returns their entire 2 deep on defense and a Heisman trophy winner at QB, I think it would be unreasonable to criticize Richt for not unseating them after we are losing all the first round talent that we are this year. The good news is that we have alot of future first round talent on our squad right now and will be in great position to take back the SEC post Tebow in 2010.

    Hey, you Vols should tune in and watch Georgia during bowl season the next few years and see how it all plays out since UT will likely be sitting at home during bowl season which has become their annual tradition. Man, I bet Eric Berry kicks himself everyday for going to UT instead of Georgia. Talk about a waste of a potentially great college career, lol.

    I see no valid reason for UGA, UT, UF fans to be claiming victory based on spring games. I also believe that you are only as good as your last game. So though it pains me to say it UF has the bragging rights at this point in time till one of the other two (UGA/UT) can knock them off the mountain. I hope that every kid with talent gets a chance to play and live out their dream. I also believe that Tennessee has had their share of off field incidents as of late, Donte Stallworth, Dewayne Goodrich, Lenora Little to name a few. But as it has been pointed out, so have UF, Bama, Georgetown (Alan Iverson) and almost every other school in the country. I can say that this year Lane Kiffen has removed more players from the roster then in years past. I am a diehard UT fan, and if you cut me I bleed orange, but I would rather loose every game with kids who keep their nose clean and play hard and go to school then to take a NC home with a bunch of thugs and punks. Everyone has some down years and we are going through ours right now but last time I checked the 5th or 6th placed team could hang with any other team in the country. I hope this Moody kid gets a chance to play and does the right thing. I can think of no better mentor then Monte Kiffen for him and I am sure that the old pro will not take any crap off an 18 yr old kid.
