Sometimes I wonder what would have happened if Aaron Craft had come to Tennessee like he originally planned. You can't make this up. He really should've thought about that tweet before he hit send.
I read that. Absolutely hysterical.
That's like Dooley tweeting, "I wonder what would have happened if Wilcox hadn't bailed on me."
"When we step on that football field, everyone flips a switch. And it's on..." - Butch Jones
He still might have gotten fired because of Dooley. He hired Kiffin and Dooley. It would have just bought him more time maybe.
I wonder what would have happened if we hired Tom Jurich instead of promoting from within.
good question , wow lots of what if 's
I really like Mike Hamilton (as a person and philanthropist). He really is a great guy, and he's honest. But that tweet was dumb. Should have thought a little more about how that would be perceived before sending.
His tweets seem pretty harmless.
Great guy...horrible AD. Nothing wrong...he is a fundraiser and is right where he belongs. Being an AD is more then raising funds.
Can someone tweet back to him for me? Tell him to go to effing hell from the Dingo.
Time to ax this....
Classless comment "Dingo"
I just downvoted you. Mike Hamilton is a great man and there is more to life than sports. Shame on you.
"Count it down with me. Five, four, three, two, one.
The national champion is clad in Big Orange!"
Like others have already said, Mike seems like, and by all accounts is a genuinely nice/philanthropic guy, just not one you want running the athletic department. I have a feeling he had a hard time getting firm with the Cheeks, Jennings, faculty when e time called for it and they just exploited his friendliness.
Pearl and Craft would be leading our basketball team to new heights and Dooley would be primed to lead the football program to historic lows? Is that kinda what would of happened if Aaron and Matta hadn't yelled foul?
"Give him six" "We don't give a damn about the whole state of Alabama" "Grit N Grind"
It's sad the hate that Hamilton gets. He failed as an AD. Sucks for us.
I hope to be half the man he is, both in terms of career success (obviously not as a career AD, but his overall professional career) and his actions in contributing to help the less fortunate.
