That in no way makes him look better in this, it actually makes him look worse because he never stopped it or knew about it.Well, Pruitt's story is basically that they didn't just find out, this was going on at Tennessee for quite some time prior to his arrival. That makes it somewhat important to the entire narrative.
Probably because they didn’t think he was stupid enough to ruin his career in a mud fight with the university. His reputation would be better if he didn’t try to fight it in public.Either way Tennessee's defense here is something I don't think I've ever seen. Yes, we did break all those NCAA rules but it was all the fault of the person in charge! It's bizarre in how thoroughly it implicates them.
Aranda is at Baylor and is probably going to be offered far better jobs than Tennessee. Do you think he is 10X smarter and has a far better financial situation than Pruitt.As far as Pruitt going to Tennessee at the time I said I couldn't blame him because he was set to make so much money. That was basically a full career's worth of money in one contract. It was a 22.8 million dollar contract, that's nearly 23 years as Alabama DC with what he was making at the time. It was stupid contract on their part but it's hard to turn down that kind of money. Remember this guy was at Hoover in 2006 and wasn't an on-field coach at Alabama until 2010. That contract was probably close to ten times his net worth.
