07:08 AM ET 05.09 | The story of point guard Trae Golden's departure now has a few more wrinkles. In the aftermath of Tuesday's abrupt announcement of [Golden's] transfer from Tennessee, questions, reports and rumors hung like dense fog Wednesday. On Tuesday, a UT athletic department source with knowledge of the situation told the News Sentinel that Golden's departure is "based on academics" and a result of "repeated plagiarism." ... Contacted Wednesday afternoon, Robert Golden, Trae's father, initially declined comment. He then, however, called Tuesday's reports "totally inaccurate." "No, no, no," he said regarding Golden's alleged academic issues. "It's not that. My son, he's fine in that area. He's just going to pursue some other opportunities."

If they cheat, show 'em the door. If you help them cheat, ride the rail with tar 'n' feathers. I'm sick of shizzle in Tennessee athletics. Do it right, or don't do it at all.

Yes, and these days, if you're pumping gas, it's for fine looking trophy WAGs in luxury rides. Besides, Barstow doesn't have the same number of syllables as Columbia.
