Kinda surprised no one has mentioned his petty attacks on fans/admin staff who he doesn't like. 

 Big Orange, don't wear a cow mask to any game.

Would definitely like to hear more details about these ....

I'm happy that he's mooooooooooving on.

Thanks for the replies.

Anecdotally, he was not well liked in his first stop in Knoxville. He also learned at the feet of Mike Hamilton, a man partly responsible for tanking our AD. David Blackburn is a local who would have been a slam dunk, and Phil Fulmer made a late run at the job thanks to his donor affiliations. Not many were expecting this.

he wasn't well liked here either but my man pissclams will assure you he wasn't liked both here and at UT the first time around because of inexperience and now he is experienced so I'm sure everyone will absolutely love this completely likeable irl individual. have fun.

He's a good athletic director if you don't care about how good your football or basketball teams are.

i don't have to like someone to work with them or to acknowledge that they're being successful at their job
i never gave a crap about liking john currie, how i feel about him is inconsequential

It's important to me to like them because I am a fan and I do this for entertainment.

And baseball.

2 of those 3 coaches he had nothing to do with and the one he did has burned down the program.

But yeah, titletown was very fun.

At Tennessee, an example of that was Doug Dickey (who coached here and then came back as AD). An ass to be sure, but we didn't have any trouble with the NCAA while he was here.

Tennessee, get ready for your coaches to hate their AD, and for prospective new coaches to be apprehensive.

I guess if Tennessee has a good coach for either sport who is a university hero and doesn't really have to listen to Currie, then that sport is probably good to go.

Did I read somewhere that KSU had to hire a go between in order for Snyder and Currie to communicate? They basically didn't talk to each other.

Probably not accurate about the intermediary, but probably accurate that Snyder doesn't acnowledge anything Currie says.

There are many people who claim to be in the know, who claim that this is true.  I have zero personal first hand knowledge tho.

CN: Cheap tickets.  Some here call OSU the Cows.  Some here buy tickets and cow masks for people to attend the game to feign support for our emaw hero Brad Underwood and current coach of the "cows."  Suddenly there is security bird dogging students who wear cow masks at the game.

We do. The Big Orange caravan makes several stops around Tennessee and in Atlanta.

If some schadenfreude is what you're looking for (that's about all we live for here now), our football coach does not like having others meddle in his affairs. He doesn't take criticism well. I assume he and Currie will butt heads frequently. Apparently, Rick Barnes is not happy about this development either. Should be entertaining.
