When I spoke to a former Tennessee football player on Thursday I was presented with a conspiracy theory that was almost impossible to believe.

Dave’s Dish: The Dumpster Fire Burns On

Let me be clear, I never thought Greg Schiano would be a great hire for Tennessee when news began to leak this weekend. And that has nothing to do with what role he may have played at Penn State scandal.   Schiano has a 68-67 record in college football, all at Rutgers. His record is…MORE
