    Glad you'd be impressed, partner. Tell that Ohio Stadium doesn't absolutely blow way Neyland Stadium as a venue. 108,000 drunken in-bred rerdnecks doesn't a venue make. As for those mountain girls with "Southern charm", I don't see what's so charming about a set of 24 tobacco-stained teeth...hee yuk.

    From the knox news the other part that was odd is the purchase of a fake dick and sample holder. The fake dick was "indistinguishable from the real thing" and the bag had a warmer. But for the sample being too hot to have come from a real human being he might have gotten away with this.


    Associated Press
    KNOXVILLE, Tenn. -- Former Tennessee football player James Banks resumed smoking marijuana after his knee surgery this season and deliberately submitted a diluted drug test sample before he was dismissed from the team last week, according to published reports.



    Coach Phillip Fulmer dismissed Banks, last year's leading receiver, after giving him several chances to redeem himself.



    "I just never thought I would get kicked off the team," Banks told The Tennessean on Tuesday. "I always thought it would work out. It's my fault that I got kicked out of here, and I know that. I accept it and now I have to move on.



    "I owe a lot of people a lot of apologies, but I let down my teammates tremendously. We could have been very good next year with me in there. I still think they will be very good, but I know we would have been better with me in the lineup."



    Banks was suspended for the first half of last year's Peach Bowl, spring practice and the first three games of the season after various incidents. He was cited this summer for underage drinking.



    His predicament got worse after his playing days ended with a preseason injury and knee surgery on Sept. 3.



    That's when Banks began smoking marijuana again after quitting earlier.



    "I had too much free time. I know people are going to think I have a drug problem, but I don't think I have a problem. Smoking weed is something I choose to do, and it happens to be illegal. It doesn't control me," he said.



    A member of Tennessee's medical staff told Banks last week there was a problem with his most recent drug test.



    Banks told the newspaper he submitted a diluted and unreadable urine sample to try to cover up his marijuana use. He had already failed one drug test in his career.



    "I knew they were going to test us," Banks said. "I guess I thought I wouldn't get caught."



    "It was just stupid. I don't know any other way to say it than that."



    Banks plans to return to his home in Indianapolis for Christmas.



    He has already talked to officials at Chattanooga about transferring to the I-AA school, where he would be able to play immediately without sitting out a year. He could join other former Vols Brandon Johnson, Ovince Saint Preux and Greg Jones there.



    Banks is also considering Grambling and Murray State.



    "I wish everything could have been different," Banks said. "I didn't deal well with being away from football. I didn't even go to the games. I couldn't. Just watching them prepare and not being a part of it got to me. I got lazy in everything I did, and I'll always be sorry for that."

    Stewart will announce tomorrow at 5:50 pm PST on a Seattle television station. He is choosing between Oregon and Washington St.

    tOSU not involved anymore but we have discussed this kid so much that we might as well reveal the ending.

    I like to see him chose at least one school that has shades of red and grey as their school colors. Wazzu fans have been cool on this board.

    If nothing else I gotta respect the kid for not jumping aboard the fastest horse on the track. Lets face it, he could have went anywhere he wanted. Maybe he wants to go to a so-so team and put them on the map, so to speak.

    I compare him to LT. He stayed with the Chargers and didn't have too many nice things to say when Eli Manning and his Daddy cryed their way out of San Diego.

    I was rooting for the Chargers to win it all... After my dismal Lions were out of it. (week 1) lol. Just so they could rub it in Eli's face. He hasn't impressed me at all in NY.

    Good Luck Snoop
     
  11. i believe grades were the issue that held him back from a lot of programs

    Wasn't UW and Willingham hot on his trail? Or did they back off due to grades? I thought Stewart said he was strongly considering Washington now that Willingham was there as coach?

    Yea, most Wazzu posters were great. I started following them after we played them. I would like to see him pick them.

    He must like NIKE......his commitment to Oregon is very suprising for his ranking, I guess the grades were a huge issue for alot of major programs.
