UT QB Battle down to Two

Sophomore QB Brent Schaeffer shown the door at UT.

(KNOXVILLE) – Brent Schaeffer’s career at Tennessee is over.

The sophomore quarterback will no longer be a part of the program after meeting earlier today with Coach Phillip Fulmer. Schaeffer, who was competing for the starting quarterback job this spring, had already been indefinitely suspended by Fulmer following his arrest last week on assault charges.

Schaeffer’s latest run-in with Fulmer came after missing several classes despite being warned by Fulmer that any further incident would be the final straw.

Even Mr. Magoo saw this coming. On the down side, however, if The Great Pumpkin gets serious about cleaning house, we’ll be starting the 2005 season with about a dozen players suited up.


  1. Not a huge shock as he’d had some issues like this before–he was not even allowed to go the Bowl game due to off the field conduct issues if I recall correctly. Or else he was only there in the stands but not on the sidelines. Better hope Ainge is as good as he showed last year and that the new kid coming is as advertised.
