The Way to a Recruit's Heart?

Anyone else think this story missed the point? Seems that three Tennessee freshmen football players were chaperoning a recruit on his official visit this past weekend when their car was stopped after police noticed a burned-out light over the license plate. When officers approached the car, there was smoke coming out of a window and the smell of marijuana. A subsequent search turned up two cigars, one partially smoked.

So what's the bigger deal? That Mr. Big Orange Phillip Fulmer did not suspend any of the three players but said they must do a lot of things to get back in his "good graces?" (Whatever that means.) Or that the best way to show a recruit a good time remains sex, booze, drugs or all of the above.

Hello Mr. Barr this is off the topic of your current article, but I was unsuccessful with an email attempt. I do have a concern about a kid name Chaune Duffy, he is a junior who recently had to leave CHFs because of boundary changes and attend Fairmont Heights school about(3)weeks ago. For the last two weeks I have seen articles being posted for High scores for the week. A kid name Chaune has played in (9) games and his average ppg has been (21) and he has yet to be mentioned in your article. I realize that reporters or sport columnist look at certain kids, but some that are not honorable mentioned get overlooked and he is not only an aggressive player he plays solid basketball. Come out or send someone to look at how this Kid balls. Thus far his total points for all the games has totalled 190.00 and dividing that into 9 games averages this kid 21ppg. Just looking out for other players who continue to be left out. Thanks for your time.

I think that chaune duffy is one of the best guards in the 2a and maybe in the county but he avg 21 points and 13 assist for fairmont heights and i feel he deserves a first team selection on all-met even though the hornets fell short he is only a junior and hes a great point gaurd .

Khaalis Coppock-Bey and Chaune Duffy are two of the best players in P.G County. Both averaged over 20 points a game and Duffy averaged over 10 assists. They both deserve to be all met and at least all county even though the hornets fell short this year.
