08:30 AM ET 07.14 | Janzen Jackson is still on thin ice. Enrolling in school again was a big step. But it's not the last one [Jackson] will need to make as he continues his return to Tennessee. The progress the Vols safety has made in trying to get back with the program was clear when he was confirmed last week as a student at the university once again. But despite admitting some cautious optimism during an appearance Wednesday morning, UT coach Derek Dooley stressed that there's still plenty to do both on and off the field for the junior before he's officially in the lineup again. "He's only been here, how long, three days now," Dooley said after a dedication at the UT Center for Athletic Field Safety. "So it's a little premature to say he's back."

He's actually been back longer than 3 days but since he was driving the Prius no one heard him arrive.

I believe so. If he was not the best player on the team he would not get such treatment but, as we all know, that's how it goes.

However, to Dooley's credit, he wasn't the one who kept him on the team when the whole prius thing happened, that was Kiffi-cakes.

Stop ruining this with logic and facts. Let me have my beliefs that Dooley is above reproach.

That is unbelievably stupid. There are ways to prevent it with half a brain.
