Elavil For Sale, Okay, this pretty much sucks...
As the Vol Ambassador pointed out earlier today here on the Gate, according to the New York Times (which, as a general rule, avoids simply making stuff up), the NCAA is currently engaged in a wide-reaching investigation of recruiting at Tennessee under Lane Kiffin, with an emphasis on the use of the so-called "Vol Hostesses," (with particular attention being paid to Hostess Lacey Earps), who routinely accompany recruits on visits to campus. This investigation was confirmed by Mike Hamilton, though he declined to comment on the substance , and the UTAD has since issued an official statement.
The real interest appears to be trips taken by some of the Vol Hostesses to watch potential recruits play as high schoolers. These visits, especially if they result in direct communications related to the recruiting of the athlete are potentially barred under NCAA regulations. Times reporters Pete Thamel and Thayer Evans noted instances where Vol Hostesses had traveled as distance up to 200 or more miles to see recruits play, and had occasionally exchanged text messages with potential recruits.
As official representatives of the UT Athletic Department, contact by these Hostesses could lead to secondary violations, even if the contact was not sanctioned by athletic department officials.
Of particular note, is the fact that the NCAA has been interviewing potential recruits who have not yet formally signed a letter of intent to play for the Vols, an unusual occurrence. Typically, the NCAA only interviews recruits after they have committed. The implication being that the investigation is a serious one and one which the NCAA is not taking lightly.
This is especially true considering the fact that Tennessee racked-up a minimum of six secondary violations since December of 2008. In fact, as attorney and former NCAA investigator, Rick Evrard, told the Times, those secondary violations could have been the impetus leading to the investigation in the first instance. Evard was stated:
Secondaries mean something to the NCAA. It’s very telling if an institution continues to report secondaries particularly if they’re in the same category. If you keep doing the same thing over and over and keep reporting it, that would trigger the N.C.A.A.’s enforcement staff to possibly go in and look at some of that activity.
Former NCAA Investigator Rick Evrard, speaking to the New York Times
It seems to me that a recruiting tool which pairs attractive young women with potential football stars who are approximately 18 years old for the sole purpose of convincing them to play for Tennessee is destined for disaster. This is hardly a new realization for me -- I have felt this way since I was a student at Tennessee -- but this investigation makes it all the more apparent. I do not believe that the athletic department has ever intentionally attempted to use the Vol Hostesses as the proverbial "bait," and I am not questioning the scruples or morals of these young ladies. All I am saying is that, at that age and in those circumstances, things can happen.
The fact of the matter is that this could be a potentially far-reaching and very serious investigation. On the other hand, it could end up being more smoke than fire. Either way, I would imagine that the Athletic Department will be taking a long, hard, look at the use of Vol Hostesses as part of the recruiting process.
More on this as the web untangles...

Diflucan For Sale, Ok. So by now you've already experienced your mini-meltdown over the coaching changes. If you're anything like me, you probably went thermo-nuclear when you found out that not only is the NCAA "probing" (ha, I know) the situation with our hostesses, but that they're contacting our recruits. Fret not. The rumor mill has produced the following information:
1. Kiffin and staff were aware of this after the fact, but did not ask the hostesses to attend the game.
2. The hostess at the center of the controversy is originally from South Carolina and went home with some of her friends for the weekend. While there, they attended Lattimore's game. Apparently they're facebook friends.
Irrespective of how this turns out, this is not a good development this late in the recruiting game. Maybe I'm drinking the orange Kool-aid, but something about this isn't right. I get Wilson going to LSU and his comments recently should dismiss any notions of foul play there. What I don't like is that Gran left and the next day Luc commits to FSU, then Lattimore commits to SC and the NCAA comes knocking. There are a lot of adjectives being thrown around the message boards to describe Gran, but I'm not sure what actually happened to him. As far as I can tell, it was too hot in the kitchen for him. I'm ok with that. I like the idea that our staff is too intense for some people. Wes Rucker put it best in saying we have a great administration, ordering Diflucan online, No prescription Diflucan online, a ton of money, and a hungry fan base. Will be fine.
This thing with the hostesses, canada, mexico, india, Diflucan coupon, though, probably looks way worse than it really is. Were the rules bent? Maybe, online Diflucan without a prescription, Diflucan from mexico, maybe not. Will there be another Kiffin rule passed in the offseason in response? You bet.

So far, Cafergot from canada, Discount Cafergot, the playcalling has been nice. Mixing it up on offense in terms of the pass and run. Unfortunately, the two early turnovers are disappointing. The good news is that they are not all Jonathan Crompton's fault. On the whole, online buying Cafergot hcl, Purchase Cafergot, Crompton looks much more comfortable in the pocket than in years past. Furthermore, the zone blocking scheme is opening some nice holes for the running game.
The defense seems to really feel at home in the new Full Monte / Tennessee Two defensive sets. It is really amazing how well the same sets can be used to protect against both the pass and the run. Case in point: WKU's reverse at about 4:50 to go in the 1st.
Despite the turnovers, where can i find Cafergot online, Purchase Cafergot for sale, so far I am liking what I am seeing...

Buy Triamterene Without Prescription, Neyland Stadium is in the process of getting a new face, but now it is also getting a new name...
At a press conference early this morning, UT Athletic Director Mike Hamilton announced that starting this season the Home of the Vols—known since 1962 as Neyland Stadium—will have a new name: “Nissan Stadium at Neyland Landing”
Joined by UT Acting President Jan Simek, Athletics Board leader Jim Haslam, head football coach Lane Kiffin, and Nissan representatives, Hamilton unveiled preliminary designs for the new stadium logo and explained why Nissan was ultimately chosen as the new principal naming partner for Tennessee’s most visible icon.
This is an historic opportunity for athletics at Tennessee and for the stadium that we all love. Furthermore, this partnership assures the financial future of this program for many years to come. When we began the process of exploring a naming alliance, from the outset, we were committed to forging a pact with an organization that was both committed to this great state, but also one that fans and alumni could be proud of. That is precisely what Nissan could offer. Furthermore, this historic alliance only serves to amplify the national respect for Tennessee football and for the university as a whole.
• Mike Hamilton, commenting on UT / Nissan Partnership
In total, Nissan will contribute over $1.1 billion to the UT athletics program over the next 5 years. Though unconfirmed at this time, there were indications that Nissan is considering a re-branding of its products to feature an orange and black color scheme.
Since the start of the athletic department’s master plan renovations to Neyland Stadium in 2004, the project has been funded by private funding sources. UT Athletics Board leader Jim Haslam noted that, while largely relying upon VASF donors, the scope and size of the project was such that corporate partners were envisioned from the beginning. “While it was never publicly advertised, the naming rights for the stadium were always available,” said Haslam. Haslam also indicated that other companies were considered, but none could provide what Nissan ultimately offered.
The alliance with Nissan will fund the remainder of the $ 200 million phase III of the Master Plan renovations already underway, as well as future renovations to the stadium which have yet to commence. In addition to its contributions to athletics, Nissan will also make sizable donations to the UT educational endowments, especially in areas tied to engineering and the automotive industry.
[caption id="" align="alignright" width="150" caption="Nissan President Carlos Ghosn"][/caption]
Nissan North America President and CEO, Carlos Ghosn, remarked:
Since the 1982 construction of the Nissan assembly facility in Smyrna, Nissan has been committed to the State of Tennessee, this partnership with the University of Tennessee further cements that pledge to the people of this great state. This is our bond to the people of Tennessee. At Nissan we expect excellence, evidenced by the quality automotive products our thousands of Tennessee and worldwide employees produce. The Tennessee athletics program is equally known for its excellence and its tradition of winning. That is why Nissan is here.
In addition to its global facilities, Nissan currently operates facilities in Smyrna, Jackson, Franklin, and Decherd, Tennessee and in Canton, Mississippi. The Smyrna facility, which employs more than 6,000 Tennesseans, covers 5.4 million square feet on 884 acres. More than one-half million vehicles are produced there every year.
The announcement was not uniformly greeted with cheers of enthusiasm. Some Vol fans are disturbed at the notion of changing the name of the stadium. Knoxville resident Hooper Hollingsworth said, “I’m glad that Nissan wants to help out, but that’s Neyland Stadium, not some car company.” Others were uniformly opposed to the proposition, “This is just another sellout. What’s next, the Swaggerty’s Sausage Arena?” said Gus Harris of Clinton. Some also noted that it was ironic that this announcement came one year to the day after the announcement that one of Knoxville’s other icons—the Sunsphere—was to be demolished.
The official renaming of the stadium is currently scheduled to take place during halftime of the September 5th football season opener versus Western Kentucky.

Note: This post is essentially a comment responding to a post by Hooper over at RTT regarding the Brian Butler Saga. I considered posting some of this as a comment on that venerable site Atarax For Sale, , but opted instead to post my thoughts in an actual article. Thus, I would encourage anyone reading this post to give the original post by Hooper a look.
For a detailed account of Brian Butler's exploits in the world of college football recruiting you should check out an excellent article written by The New York Times' Thayer Evans and Pete Thamel entitled "College Recruiting's Thin Gray Line," upon which the author of this post also relied.
Brian Butler has been called many things by many people, not all of them are nice.
Butler is a former rapper and call-center manager, and a seemingly respectable football trainer based out of Wichita, Kansas. At present, Butler is the principal and operator of the Potential Players recruiting service through which he serves as a self-styled, come-lately, “recruiting adviser” to high school football standouts across the country. A “gifted” self-promoter, he is also the subject of a recently announced investigation by the NCAA.
There are many questions being asked about Butler by many people, especially those recruiting high school standout Bryce Brown (which includes Tennessee). The fundamental question, however, centers on whether he is essentially seeking to act as a sports agent for players being recruited by college football programs.
For now, at least, there is no definitive answer to this query.
The reason that this is an issue is that Butler has widely taken the position that the only way that college recruiters can speak with high-schoolers that he is “advising” is by going through him. To many, this appears—at least outwardly—that Butler is serving as an “agent” rather than simply as an “adviser.”
Again, why does anyone care? Under NCAA bylaws, current and potential student athletes are prohibited from retaining agents, and requires that all prospective athletes undergo an amateurism certification process, which includes, among other things, certifying that the athlete has not agreed to be represented by an agent. On the issue of agents, NCAA Bylaw 12.3 states that:
An individual shall be ineligible for participation in an intercollegiate sport if he or she ever has agreed (orally or in writing) to be represented by an agent for the purpose of marketing his or her athletics ability or reputation in that sport. Further, Buying Atarax online over the counter, an agency contract not specifically limited in writing to a sport or particular sports shall be deemed applicable to all sports, and the individual shall be ineligible to participate in any sport.
• See NCAA Operational Bylaw 12.3.1 (PDF )
The NCAA’s website offers additional guidance stating that:
…a student-athlete (any individual who currently participates in or who may be eligible in the future to participate in intercollegiate sport) may not agree verbally or in writing to be represented by an athlete agent in the present or in the future for the purpose of marketing the student-athlete's ability or reputation. If the student-athlete enters into such an agreement, is Atarax safe, the student-athlete is ineligible for intercollegiate competition.
Also, Online buy Atarax without a prescription, a student-athlete may not accept transportation or other benefits from an athlete agent. This prohibition applies to the student-athlete and his or her relatives or friends.
The term "agent" includes actual agents, runners (individuals who befriend student-athletes and frequently distribute impermissible benefits) and financial advisors.
It is not a violation of NCAA rules if a student-athlete merely talks to an agent (as long as an agreement for agent representation is not established) or socializes with an agent.
Thus, low dose Atarax, Butler acting as the only means of communication with a recruit could be troubling and potentially a violation of NCAA rules, Ordering Atarax online, hence the NCAA investigation.
This raises a particularly thorny set of issues for high school athletes and their families, college athletic departments, high school coaches, Atarax pharmacy, college boosters, Atarax gel, ointment, cream, pill, spray, continuous-release, extended-release, the NCAA, and State Legislators. That’s right, I said State Legislators.
For these reasons, Atarax description, I am personally of the opinion that someone—whether it be Butler, Buy generic Atarax, athletes, college institutions, or otherwise—will end up paying for what amounts to an infraction that lies in the proverbial “gray area” of the NCAA’s rules. A violation in spirit, Atarax pics, if not in the letter. The problem is, Atarax alternatives, however, that whether Butler’s conduct violates many rules or none all depends on the perspective applied to the facts, and for the record, effects of Atarax, I make no assertion that I know or understand all of the facts.
Still, Atarax treatment, let’s use a hypothetical to illustrate the complexity of the situation.
Meet Johnny Rocket
Let’s assume we have a hypothetical 17 year-old high school running back from Bugtussle, Tennessee, named Johnny Rocket. Our boy Johnny has had a stellar career and is now looking at the possibility of playing at any number of schools across the country—all the recruiting sites have him tabbed as a 5-star recruit and the coaches across the country are salivating at the thought of having him suit up for them in the future. Let’s also assume that no one in Johnny’s family ever played for any school and that they are simple working-class folks who really do not understand the mechanics of the recruiting process.
Using our hypothetical, Atarax trusted pharmacy reviews, let's assume that Johnny Rocket’s father ("Jackson") decides that his son is going to play for Tennessee, Atarax dosage, because that’s Jackson’s favorite team, he’s regularly gone with a friend to watch the Vols play for years, and “that’s just how it’s gonna be.” Since Knoxville called and told Jackson that that they’d love to have Johnny wearing an orange shirt, about Atarax, Jackson has bought every single piece of orange clothing he can find and has filled Johnny’s closet. He took Jackson to every home game in Neyland Stadium last season, No prescription Atarax online, and talked a friend’s son who is a UT student into letting Johnny spend the weekend with him so he could see what college life in Knoxville is like. Jackson has also let it be known that no coaches anywhere from any school can do anything to talk to his son without first coming through him, but since Jackson’s mind’s made up, unless you know Lane Kiffin or Ed Orgeron you’re not getting in the door. Case closed.
While this might seem a closed-minded and unfair way for the recruiting process to work, Atarax coupon, there is no violation of any rule of any kind whatsoever in this circumstance. You see, Atarax duration, young Johnny—like most recruits—is a minor and his parents’ have the ability to completely control the situation. That’s because the law recognizes their parental rights to make decisions for their minor son, regardless of whether they are reasonable or not.
The Family Adviser…
Let’s say, however, purchase Atarax online no prescription, that instead of Jackson making the decision that he turns to the assistance of a family friend whom he’s known and trusted for years: Lawius T. Buy Atarax from canada, Vawlius, Esq. (known to his friends simply as “Lawvol” and not to be confused with the author). Jackson trusts Lawvol because he is a dear family friend, and because he is—of all things—an attorney, has known Johnny since he was a kid, and knows all about the law, about going to college, and about “life, the universe, and the bounce of the ball,” Jackson trusts Lawvol. Oh, and since Lawvol thinks the world of Johnny and his family, Lawvol is glad to help as a friend—for free—and not as an attorney.
Still, despite being an attorney by profession, there is no prohibition on family friends and advisers helping out in the recruiting process. It matters little whether that friend is an attorney, a coach (who probably played or went to a coaching camp somewhere), a priest (although I suppose the Notre Dame or Boston College pull might be a bit sketchy), or a former college player. A friend giving free advice is just that—usually.
Here’s the catch. Our hypothetical friend Lawvol is a donor to Tennessee’s VASF and has been a season ticket holder for years now. Thus, Lawvol is a “booster” in the eyes of the NCAA. As a result, there are limits on what Lawvol can say about Tennessee and how much he can encourage Johnny to play for the Big Orange.
Were Lawvol, in accompanying Johnny to all the programs across the country, to decide that his best choice would be to go to THE Ohio State University, with whom Lawvol has no affiliation, then Lawvol can engage in all the arm-twisting, lawerly-double-talk, and encouraging he wants—he’s not a booster and no amount of the “Come to Jesus” talk is too much. Lawvol, as a family outsider, can talk with recruiters at Ohio State till he’s blue-in-the-face, can make endless trips with Johnny to Columbus, he can even help Johnny pick out a sweatshirt or two on Short North near campus after visiting the Horseshoe. Lawvol could even tell coaches—as the appointed family friend and adviser—that they cannot talk to Johnny unless he approves it.
When it comes to talking-up Lawvol’s beloved Tennessee Volunteers, however, things would be much different and could result in something fairly similar to the Albert Means scenario if he went too far. Other than that, however, everything here is perfectly within the rules.
Someone Call the Butler…
Once again, let’s say that Jackson wants help and he calls Brian Butler. Now the dynamic changes—or does it?
Butler has made it clear that he’s willing to do much of what our preceding two advisers did, but on some points he is less willing. First, no purchases of clothing or free trips. Second, no prohibitions on any specific schools, just a general requirement that he be the contact for communicating with Johnny. These are important because they could be no-no’s.
Here is what Butler offers to do for our Johnny, and any other player out there who needs a little advice on the recruiting process:
To assist student-athletes in making positive decisions by recognizing the impact their lives have in our world; while preparing them physically and spiritually to overcome the challenges of life.

- Player Recruiting Assistance

Oh, but there is the small fact that Brian Butler—unlike Jackson and Lawvol—is getting paid for his help. He gets paid a nominal fee by Johnny’s parents and gets paid infinitely more by those sponsoring his events, courting him to gain his favor, and others “interested” in college recruiting.
Thoughts from the Bully Pulpit
In the end, you can see where the lines between one type of adviser and another are blurry and whether they are different in form as opposed to substance is really a matter of perspective. In reality, the most troubling one would likely be my fictitious “Lawvol” dealing with a recruit who wanted to attend Tennessee. So is what Brian Butler is doing troubling?
For me, it is.
The reason I have problems with what Butler is doing is because, at the end of the day, it is all about making money for Butler off of the talent of high school kids and their families. Sure, he is providing advice to those who probably need it and don’t have anywhere to obtain it. Good for him. The difference between him and everyone else is that he is operating as if he were a sports agent and is banking the benefits. Is he making anything approaching what some of the major sports agents make? Probably not. Still, I’m sure he’s making a comfortable living off of the endeavor.
Yes, I realize that college athletic programs also make money off of the student-athletes they field, but that is a little different in my mind. The benefits that a school gets from its players are substantial, but so are the benefits provided to the student athlete—namely an education and a chance to compete. Furthermore, most college athletics programs are in a constant state of hemorrhaging cash, only a select few (Tennessee being one of the few) actually make any money at the end of the season. They are simply a creature of tradition which are designed to self-perpetuate as best they can. Most athletic departments are constantly chasing dollars because they pour out as fast as they come in. The few programs that manage to achieve solvency in a traditional business sense—like Tennessee—typically disgorge their profit back to their parent institution. Thus, though it is a money game, it’s not the typical profit and loss system that is seen in other areas of sport. I am, however, biased in favor of college athletics.
So what, if anything, can or should be done about it?
One of the questions that Hooper raised in his article was what exactly can the NCAA do to police Butler if they want to impose their will upon him? The simple answer is, by itself, not much. Butler is not a player and is not a sanctioned institution. Thus, he can’t be given a penalty for an infraction.
Could a player be sanctioned or declared ineligible for using Butler, Atarax For Sale. Potentially, buy cheap Atarax no rx, but I doubt that the NCAA would be quite that draconian on a high school kid who simply wants to do the best for himself and unwittingly trusted Butler.
Could the NCAA sanction schools for using Butler. Order Atarax online c.o.d, That seems doubtful considering that the programs are not the ones controlling the contacts and recruiting process—they are essentially beholden to Butler and simply along for the ride on the rollercoaster that Butler has created. The one exception that might lead to a school getting sanctioned would be if a program provided any sort of financial incentive to Butler (a/k/a “bribes”) in return for a recruit’s ear or commitment. That would most certainly lead to sanctions, but really is not any different than the aforementioned Albert Means scenario.
It is entirely possible that the NCAA has additional weapons in its legal arsenal of which I am simply not aware, in fact it is likely. I am not an expert in the area of NCAA compliance, japan, craiglist, ebay, overseas, paypal, rules, Generic Atarax, and regulations. At first blush, however, Butler does appear to be operating outside the existing regulatory framework—at least in a traditional sense.
So, Atarax maximum dosage, if the NCAA has no control over Butler, Order Atarax online overnight delivery no prescription, is that it. No.
The fact of the matter is that the NCAA does not have to exercise its authority to reign Butler in—that’s where those State Legislators I mentioned earlier, and a little thing called the Uniform Athlete Agents Act (UAAA) come into play.
In the fall of 2000, where can i order Atarax without prescription, the National Conference of Commissioners on Uniform State Laws (NCCUSL)—a blue-ribbon panel of lawyers, Atarax steet value, judges, state legislators and law professors appointed at the state level—released the Uniform Athlete Agents Act which was intended to “provide a uniform system for regulating athlete agents.” This Model Act was drafted by a taskforce at the NCAA’s request. Upon release, it was submitted to all of the state legislatures across the country. In some form or fashion, Atarax online cod, 43 states and territories have enacted the provisions of the UAAA, Atarax samples, are in the process of enacting it, or have a similar act already in place. Tennessee is one of the states which enacted the UAAA verbatim (See TCA § 49-7-2122 — § 49-7-2141 ).
The UAAA imposes strict requirements on Agents in terms of how, when, Atarax over the counter, and where they do business. It also requires that they register with state officials as athlete agents. Violations of the provisions of the UAAA can lead to civil and criminal liabilities. In the case of civil suits, Order Atarax from United States pharmacy, any award is trebled (multiplied by a factor of three), state officials can impose administrative fines up to $25,000 per violation of the Act, online buying Atarax hcl, and criminal penalties—which in Tennessee are a class E felony—can result in up to six years in prison. (See id. )
Whether Butler’s actions fall within the reach of the UAAA is a question which would be open to debate. That said, Comprar en línea Atarax, comprar Atarax baratos, if the NCAA were concerned enough, there is no reason that the UAAA could not be revised to include activities of precisely the sort in which Butler is engaged. Thus, while it might not be possible for the NCAA to stop Butler at present, where can i buy cheapest Atarax online, there is no reason that they could not potentially stop him at some point down the road though the use of the NCAA’s considerable power in the various legislatures of states far and wide.
But is all of that really worth it?
Whether or not Brian Butler is deserving of some sort of censure is open for debate. Undoubtedly, Atarax dose, the NCAA will let the world know its thoughts when its investigation is concluded. Until then, it is all speculation.
If the NCAA determines that Butler is in violation of its rules, buy Atarax no prescription, then likely as not, Order Atarax no prescription, there will be a furor to follow. What impact that might have on Bryce Brown’s recruitment is beyond me. Still, until then all eyes in the recruiting world will be focused squarely on the exploits of Brian Butler and the considerable weight of the NCAA investigatory lens bearing down upon him.
Butler asserts that his service is legitimate and that he is simply helping players maximize that potential. Helping someone maximize their potential is hardly a moral offense. Violating the rules of the NCAA, while hardly laudable, Atarax schedule, is sometimes understandable given their massive breadth and scope (PDF ). Sometimes, rules get broken with the best of intentions out of no true fault on the part of the offender. In my opinion that is not what is going on in the case of Brian Butler.
Though perhaps un-sanctionable for now, however, the use of high school athletes—their families, their hopes, their dreams, their desire to excel—to propel yourself to national prominence and wealth, in my opinion, is hardly reputable and should not be condoned. While Butler may not have violated any rules or regulations which can be enforced, his shameless self-promotion paired with his willingness to interject himself into the recruitment of athletes in unprecented ways, makes me seriously question his motives. I cannot say that Butler is dirty—I am not privy to those facts. It does, however, appear to this author that he is.
Whether the NCAA agrees remains to be seen…
