DY-NO-MITE! Teen charged in 2nd racial incident at NJ Walmart WASHINGTON TOWNSHIP, N.J. — A teenager who allegedly made an announcement earlier this month ordering all black people to leave a southern New Jersey Walmart has been charged in a similar incident at the same store just after Christmas. The 16-year-old Atlantic County boy, whose name was not released because he is a juvenile, was charged last week with harassment and bias intimidation in the March 14 incident. Washington Township police said Thursday that the teen did the same thing Dec. 28 at the Gloucester County store. Police were not initially notified of that incident, but store officials turned over surveillance video this week. Walmart has apologized and made changes to the store's intercom system to prevent future incidents. Chinese national arrest in Honolulu HONOLULU — Federal agents have arrested a Chinese national in Honolulu for illegal importation of counterfeit weight-loss medication. A U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement statement issued Thursday in Denver says 30-year-old Sengyang Zhou of Kunming had traveled from China to Hawaii intending to meet with people interested in distributing his pills in the U.S. The statement said the arrest came Tuesday, the same day that an alleged accomplice, 60-year-old Qung Ming Hu, was arrested in Plano, Texas. The two have been charged with a number of crimes, including the introduction and delivery into interstate commerce of unapproved new drugs. Zhou is being held without bond. Hu was released on bond, agreeing to appear April 7 in Denver to face the charges against her.
Fuse sweeps 2010 SGA election Kyle Turner Staff Writer After countless hours of campaigning and hard work put in by both 20102011 SGA parties, Fuse has come out victorious. Fuse swept officer positions with Tommy Jervis, junior in finance, elected president; Angie Sessoms, junior in political science, elected vice president; Avery G. Howard, junior in agricultural science, elected student services director; and Ross Rowland, sophomore in exercise science, named board of trustees nominee. With a total of more than 21,000 UT undergraduate students, only 4,654 votes were cast — roughly 1,500 fewer votes than the 2009 election. Each of the four executive members of team Fuse handily surpassed their Transform counterparts with an average of 1,000 additional votes. Members of the Fuse
campaign celebrated their victory at Tin Roof on the Strip Thursday night after months of preparation. “It is a huge relief to know that the elections are over, but I am already looking forward to taking office this April,” Jervis said. Jervis reiterated the dedication and compassion that was exhibited by both teams, noting the common goal of improving UT. “I really want to thank every student who voted,” Jervis said. “I am truly one of them and look forward to an open dialogue between the SGA and all students.” Not even the weather could dampen the spirits of Howard, the incoming student services director. “I am feeling a mixture of relief and excitement right now,” Howard said. “My friends have laid the foundation for everything that I have embarked on thus far and those are the
ones who I owe so much to.” Rowland reiterated his goal in serving as voice of the student body. “This all really hasn’t hit me just yet, but all I can say is how impressed I am with the effort of both parties who should be commended for a job well done,” Rowland said. Current SGA President Laura Nishida remarked her sadness in leaving her position but only has fond memories to reflect on. “I am so proud of the great things we have been able to accomplish, and I am extremely excited to see what the future holds for the new SGA members,” Nishida said. Howard said Nishida and current SGA members have served as good role models and that he fills he has big shoes to fill in the coming year. The election produced one tie between Kristyn Royster, sophomore in journalism, and Holly
Mixed verdict for woman in sex-for-tickets case DOYLESTOWN, Pa. — A Philadelphia woman accused of offering sexual favors for World Series tickets has been found not guilty of prostitution, but guilty of attempted prostitution. Forty-four-year-old Susan Finkelstein took the stand Thursday during her trial in Bucks County Court. She said she placed an ad with sexual overtones, but that she's not a prostitute. Authorities allege Finkelstein met with an undercover Bensalem police officer in October and offered to perform sexual acts in exchange for tickets to the World Series between the Phillies and New York Yankees. — The Associated Press

Jessica Jackley Flannery discussed her personal journey that led to the founding of http://www.kiva.org, the first Web-based, worldwide, peer-to-peer microfinancing program on Wednesday. Kiva is a program designed to offer basic financial services, but it is tailored to meet the needs of individuals who earn low wages, oftentimes those in underdeveloped nations. “Microfinance is simply traditional banking services tailored to the poor, many times those just living on
dollars a day,” Flannery said. Kiva.org, however, is not a traditional donor/recipient relationship, but one of partners. Through the efforts of Flannery and Kiva.org, more than $127 million in micro loans have been distributed to 320,000 people in 53 different countries. Kiva is a simple program that is designed for ordinary people who are in a position to loan an entrepreneur small amounts of money that can have large impacts across the globe. See FLANNERY on Page 3

FLANNERY continued from Page 1 The concept is simple, Flannery said. Individuals can go on the Web site, browse through profiles of entrepreneurs and loan them the money that would not otherwise be available. The default rate for Kiva users is extremely low, citing a 98.5 percent return rate for those wishing to lend. A passion for personal stories was the initial concept that soon led to the formation of Kiva.org. Kiva’s stated mission is connecting people through lending for poverty alleviation. Those who lend take a vested interest in the recipient, getting updates of the individuals’ business and having the opportunity to see the impact made in someone’s life. Flannery was first exposed to the underprivileged at an early age, which laid the foundation for what has become her life’s work. Too many times, Flannery saw helping the poor as whipping out your wallet, donating and leaving without making a lasting effect. It was during her work at Stanford University that Flannery serendipitously landed in a lecture given by Muhammad Yunus, who would go on to win the Nobel Peace Prize three years later for his work in economic and social development. For all of Yunus’s accomplishments, it was his ability to talk and listen to the poor, who he saw as entrepreneurs and not charity cases, that stood out to Flannery. Flannery traveled to Africa and began interviewing 150 people in a

STATE&LOCAL mission to hear their stories. Flannery said the message taken away was not of sadness and suffering but success and strength. “As much as I wanted to change their lives, it in no way compared to the drive and need of the people to change their own lives,” she said. The passion of hearing personal stories grew into what was to become Kiva.org. The program started off with $3,000 and seven entrepreneurs. By the end of that year, over $500,000 was lent to entrepreneurs in need. The second year, $15 million was loaned, the third year, $40 million, and today, in its fourth year, Kiva has $127 million in loans and growing. Through Kiva, lenders can see where their money is going and how it is impacting lives, such as providing education, mosquito nets, security, etc. “Everyone values things differently, and it was incredible to see the details of change coming from individual people,” Flannery said. Jarett Beaudoin, junior in psychology, said he gained a new perspective on helping others through the lecture. “I didn’t realize how easy it is to help someone in such a small way,” Beaudoin said. “And more than just helping someone, Kiva allows them to help themselves.” Flannery left attendees with the sentiment that anything can be accomplished if you stay true to your values and never lose sight of your true mission. “There are a lot of problems in the world, but they are not unsolvable,” she said. “If we can believe in others’ potential, then the world can be changed.”
Rep. Mumpower won’t seek re-election The Associated Press NASHVILLE — Tennessee House Majority Leader Jason Mumpower, who lost last year's election for speaker in a shocking upset, announced Thursday he won't seek re-election. The 36-year-old Republican was first elected to the seat representing part of Sullivan County and all of Johnson County in 1996. "I have enjoyed the ups and the downs, I have enjoyed the wins and the losses," Mumpower said in a speech from the well of the House chamber. "I have enjoyed everything that this place is." Republicans gained a 50-49 majority in the House in 2008, part of a GOP sweep that gave them control of both chambers of the General Assembly for the first time in 140 years. But Mumpower's nomination for speaker was thwarted when fellow Republican Rep. Kent Williams of Elizabethton banded together with all the chamber's Democrats to win the top leadership post by a single vote. Williams was later stripped of his right to run for re-election as a Republican because of the maneuver. "There's no animosity, it's just politics," Williams said. "I never had any dislike for Jason; it's just our political views are not the same. House Democratic Caucus Chairman Mike Turner of Nashville said he had always been friendly with
Mumpower, though those relations became more frayed since both were elected to leadership posts. "He'll be missed," said Turner. "He handled a really adverse situation when he lost the speakership with a lot of class. "He could have whined and moaned, and he didn't do that." Mumpower, a public relations executive in Bristol, in his speech singled out the support of his wife Alicia, whom he called "the speaker of my house." He did not immediately specify plans for what he called a "new phase" in his life. Senate Speaker Ron Ramsey, a Blountville Republican running for governor, called Mumpower "one of the best friends I have in the world," and said he hopes Mumpower will help on his gubernatorial bid. "I think he just thought it was time in his life to move on," Ramsey said. Ramsey said Mumpower's defeat in the speaker's election "was a blow, no doubt about that." Mumpower told reporters after the floor session that his defeat in the speaker's election was not a factor in his decision not to seek reelection. "You know what that is? It's history, it's old news," he said. Mumpower said he was confident he would have been re-elected as GOP leader and that he "would
have stood a very good chance of being elected speaker" next year. Following his election to the House in 1996, Mumpower rose steadily through the GOP ranks by aligning himself with social conservatives and taking an anti-tax stance. He voted against a 42-cent increase in the state tax on each pack of cigarettes in 2007, and was a was a strong opponent of proposals to impose a state income tax. But he did vote in favor of a $933 million tax increase in 2002 that included a 1 percentage point increase in the state sales tax to 7 percent. That measure passed the House on a 50-41 vote. Mumpower helped raise his political profile in 2006 by brokering a compromise to a sweeping ethics reform package during a special legislative session in the aftermath of the FBI's Tennessee Waltz bribery sting operation that led to the conviction of five former lawmakers. His colleagues elected Mumpower as Republican leader in December 2006.

Women reach milestone, make advancements in academia March is Women’s History Month, a time for us to pause and reflect on what women have achieved at UTK. Sen. Howard Baker often notes that the University of Tennessee (Blount College), unlike a number of other institutions in the late 18th century, admitted women because Gov. Blount wouldn’t sign the charter unless his daughter could attend. Are we measuring up to this proud tradition? We know that the female student population at UTK is approximately 51 percent of the undergraduate student body. The UTK Fact Book tells us that of the tenured and tenure-track faculty, about 67 percent are male and 37 percent are female, with female faculty increasingly well-represented at the assistant and associate professor ranks. We have more work to do recruiting women into the professoriate, especially in the areas in which they are traditionally underrepresented. In STEM fields, in particular, a newly released report from the American Association of University Women (titled “Why So Few? Women in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics”) documents continuing barriers to women’s progress in academia. In order to move our institution forward, the Office of the Provost has recently submitted an ADVANCE Grant to the National Science Foundation that would, if funded, increase the participation and advancement of women in academic science and engineering careers. We have achieved a temporary milestone at the upper level of the administration in which more women serve than at any time in the history of this institution. As women continue to be represented more equally as department heads and deans, I hope we will see a representative mix of female administrators become a normal part of life. We are sponsoring the first ever leadership program for women at UTK this summer, a program that, if successful, could be replicated to serve a broader cross-section of burgeoning administrators at UTK. In short, we have made a lot of progress, but there is still plenty to do. As women have become a normal part of the scene in higher education, I think it is important to reflect on the impact of this change, our readiness to welcome those different from us and the challenge for us as we anticipate further changes in the composition of the college-going population. The advent of women into higher education in increasing numbers inspired skepticism about the role they had to play. One of my classmates was surprised to be advised by one of our most distinguished professors that “women who know (classical) Greek make the best housewives.” (This turns out, by the way, not to be true.) Not everyone was prepared to welcome women into the world of opportunities higher education opens up. As we see these opportunities become available to a greater cross-section of underrepresented students, we need to consider how to make our campus welcoming to all kinds of students as well as the perspectives they bring with them. I hope that as we say goodbye to Women’s History Month, we can reflect on how to make UTK a place where all are welcome, respected and honored. — Susan Martin is the provost and senior vice chancellor for academic affairs.

Students’ ignorance dooms university I thou ght y ou h a d c la s s ! by
I am going to borrow a play from someone else’s playbook and whet your appetite with a little definition. Disenfranchised: deprived of a franchise, of a legal right or of some privilege or immunity. No word better sums up how I feel today. Students, your apathy has deprived us of a franchise. You have prevented us from claiming what rightly belongs to us, and you have very likely doomed the university to enter a literal Dark Age. The ignorance you showed in the SGA election has probably caused the biggest disaster this university has seen. It is likely to prove more catastrophic than the flight of Lane Kiffin to USC or even the forced abdication of Tennessee hero and legend John Petersen. This will ruin us! If students actually cared about this campus, or had any self-respect, they would have voted differently the last two days. Instead of voting for the party with an abstract (yet inspiring) verb for a name, students should have voted for the party that stands for something. Recycling, changing meal plans, reforming SGA, improving the bus system, creating a better Web site and giving more of a voice to students is what these other parties stand for. Is this what students really want though? I say, who cares? This is not what the university needs. It is not what the small handful of people I talked to need. More importantly, this is not what I need. The right choice, had you not been so greedy and self-serving, would have been a vote for the Robby O’Daniel for Life Party (or ROFL). We could have had great Volunteers like Robby O’Daniel as president, Cody Swallows as vice president, Gabriel Calder Johnson as student services director and the newly added Native American known simply and elegantly as Biscuit as the Board of Trustees representative.
Looking back on it, that would have been so awesome, wouldn’t it? Unfortunately for everyone, the majority of students’ general lack of moral fiber ruined any hope we had at restoring this university back to its former glory. Instead of having national heroes (and a Native American) as the ruling class, we now have nameless, faceless cowards who care only about spreading their fanatical political ideology. You think you elected a party that represents the majority of students and one whose policy will fall mostly in the center? You would be wrong. You actually elected a party that supports both fascism and communism at the same time. This is not just some impossible paradoxical ad hominem levied by an irate member of a losing party. It is in fact possible to be both fascist and communist; however, you have to be really evil to accomplish this. That is what you elected: pure evil. I wish this was not true, but it is. I wish, Volunteers, you had done the right thing Wednesday and Thursday, but you did not. Most importantly, students, I wish I had the power to direct your services, but I do not. You single handedly disenfranchised us. To all of our loyal and valuable supporters: Do not worry; all hope is not lost. We will endure. We will overcome. Just like last year when we placed fourth to Eric Berry and the other two parties running. This year we came out stronger than ever, and next year will be the same. Google O’Daniel, Swallows, Johnson and Biscuit for more information on how you can help save the university next year. We will win in 2011 or else! Finally, I need to confess I have no idea who actually won the election. My deadline is well before results are released so I am only speculating that the ROFL party has lost because I have such little faith in the students (plus our Facebook page only has 78 members). In the event that we actually win: Please discount this column, and I would like to thank all of our loving fans, my family and most importantly the academy for bestowing upon us the honor we deserve. — Gabe Johnson is a senior in political science and history.

When I was a child, my parents taught me something very important. This lesson wasn’t particularly groundbreaking. Nor was it something I found too difficult to understand. Yet the older I get, the more I realize that many people’s parents seemed to have failed to impart this particular piece of wisdom. So what was this crucial tidbit of knowledge my mom and dad gave me? “You are not the only person on the planet.” OK, so they might not have said it just like that. But they were really big on emphasizing to me that I should be considerate of the people around me. This idea was stressed even more throughout elementary and middle school. Remember? In kindergarten we learn to share our crayons and that it’s not nice to cut people in line? I know crayon sharing isn’t really a problem at our age, but way too many people seem to have forgotten what it means to be mindful of others. They go through their daily routine acting solely for themselves without giving a thought to how their actions affect anyone else. I’m talking to you, crosswalk girl. I’m in a hurry to drive to class (or not get caught at a stoplight), and you are taking your sweet, sweet time to cross the street. I have three minutes to get to the Communications Building, and you’re dragging along like a three-legged turtle. And to make matters worse, you have your head down with both hands on your phone while you text someone else who is probably also standing
in the middle of the street somewhere. By the way, as much as this whole situation annoys me, I’m also wondering how this person decides it’s a good idea to cross the road without even looking up. That’s another lesson we learn as children — look both ways. But I digress. Crosswalk girl is just a minor (albeit, frequent) example of inconsiderate behavior. This selfishness also comes in the form of people borrowing one of your belongings and returning it either broken or filthy. Or how about when the “T” is packed to standing room only and someone is using the empty seat next to him as a backpack holder? And then there are those people who think it’s someone else’s job to clean up after them. Yes, there are janitorial workers on campus. No, they should not have to pick your granola bar wrapper up off the floor in the UC because you were too lazy to walk to the nearest trashcan. I can’t even imagine how those poor souls who have to clean up Neyland Stadium after a game feel. Anyway, I could list a million examples of how people completely disregard everyone else around them. These things happen far too often, if you ask me. And I’m not saying we do it on purpose, necessarily. Sometimes, in the rush of our busy and stressful day, we really don’t think about how our habits can affect others. It’s not like we mean any harm. So I encourage you to act deliberately. Think about what you’re doing when you do it. Then maybe next time you start to cut someone off on a busy road or let a door slam in someone’s face, you’ll think about how you’d feel if you were on the other end of it. And because I’m concerned about your safety (and because I don’t want to have to scrape you off my windshield), please look up from your phone before you step in front of a moving vehicle. — Amber Harding is a junior in journalism and electronic media.

Cadillac Sky mixes up new sound on album Jake Lane Entertainment Editor Most great artists spend their careers constantly evolving in phases, taking on different styles, or as it were, making their own new ones. For Nashville transplants-in-progress Cadillac Sky, making the jump from bluegrass to a more transcendent sound couldn’t be easier. While the band members originally hail from Texas, they have been trickling up to Nashville to try and maximize their exposure and opportunities. Singer Bryan Simpson related the difference as Texas being “four hours from anywhere,” whereas Nashville is, well, Music City. In the last few months, the band has released an EP
and prepared the release of their newest album. “Weary Angel,” their last EP, started as a single song and took on a life of its own. “We went to record one song, and then another came along, and then we had four,” Simpson remarked. “When the tragedy in Haiti came along, we wanted to do something.” In the band’s online store, buyers can choose to buy the EP, from which all proceeds will support Haitian relief. On their most recent release, “Letters From the Deep,” the band took broad steps to move from a more traditional bluegrass sound and branched out into a more subdued sound, giving the band the ability to stretch out in the studio and truly come together as a group. “In the past, we’ve used the studio a lot, but this time it’s a live track, maybe with a few overdubs,” Simpson said. Simpson explained that the new approach lead to great results for the band, as their live chemistry flows through the album and truly captures the feel of their live shows. In the production chair for “Letters” was Dan Auerbach, singer-guitarist for garage blooze duo the
Black Keys. Simpson explained that Auerbach’s penchant for letting the reality of a take bleed through gave “Letters” some of its soul. “Some of the things we would have cut in the past, Dan would say ‘Leave that in’ or ‘that was cool,’” Simpson said. “He made us live with who we are and be comfortable in this moment in time.” Cadillac Sky’s set at March’s edition of Tennessee Shines also marks their inaugural show in Knoxville. Of the show’s variety hour nature, Simpson said the band would be ready for quick set ups and tear downs. “We’ve played bluegrass festivals in the past where its like two minutes in between acts, like they’re trying to keep it being anything more than people around a few mics,” Simpson said. “We played Music City Roots in Nashville, which sort of took its theme from Tennessee Shines, so if that’s any barometer for what’s to come, I think we’ll be ready.” Cadillac Sky will play with Mindy Smith, the Black Lillies and Brand New Strings on March 31. The show begins at 7 p.m. and is welcome for all ages. Tickets are $15 in advance and $20 the day of the show.
CatholicTV launches 3-D lineup The Associated Press BOSTON — Avatars and Mad Hatters are already performing before American audiences in 3-D, and Shrek is coming soon. Now, a national Catholic television network is throwing priests into the mix. CatholicTV debuted 3-D programs Tuesday in an effort to reach younger people and to make the faith message more vivid. The network
posted several 3-D shows on the Internet, released its monthly magazine in 3-D — complete with glasses — and said it will eventually broadcast some programs in 3-D. CatholicTV’s director, the Rev. Robert Reed, said he’d been planning to introduce 3D well before the success of James Cameron’s movie “Avatar” or the 3-D “Alice in Wonderland.” “It’s a way for us to show that we believe the message we have is relevant, and we’re going to use every possible avenue to bring that message to people,” said Reed, whose network reaches 5 million to 6 million homes nationwide through various cable providers. Stephen Prothero, a religion professor at Boston University, applauded CatholicTV for taking a risk with technology to attract a broader, younger audience. Evangelical Christians are typically far more adept at
that outreach, he said. But if the 3-D shows aren’t compelling, he said, it could backfire by reinforcing the notion that the Catholic Church is out of touch. “In some ways, it’s better to look like retro 2-D than bad 3-D,” he said. “Hip is a moving target. James Cameron is up more on that than Pope Benedict.” CatholicTV, based in Watertown, Mass., is jumping into 3-D in a year when an unprecedented 19 3-D movies are scheduled for release, including the latest Shrek sequel. This month, 3-D went small screen when Samsung and Panasonic began selling their first 3-D television sets for about $3,000 each. “It’s just a hot technology,” Reed said. “So I don’t see any reason why we shouldn’t use it for the purpose of connecting with younger people.” Most of the shows the network converted to 3-D had already aired, and its priority
was to expose viewers to its range of offerings rather than to elicit any sort of “wow” factor. “I just think that 3-D enhances and accentuates the good work here that is being done,” Reed said. The effect can be hard to detect, particularly in the network’s talk-show style programs, which focus on priests bantering. It’s more noticeable, for instance, in the filming of the rosary at the National Shrine in Washington, D.C., where the camera closes in on various artworks. The Rev. Dan O’Connell, host of the two decades-old show “We’ve Got to Talk,” said viewers won’t be expecting blue aliens and explosions from CatholicTV, but they will recognize that the network is trying something new. “If you take notice, you might just stay with the message,” he said.

Former Vol likes UT over OSU Zac Ellis Assistant Sports Editor Stanley Asumnu is no stranger to Tennessee basketball. As a guard/forward for UT from 2002-2006, Asumnu averaged 4.7 points in 114 career games at Tennessee. The 6-foot-5 Asumnu’s high-flying dunks became a fixture to many Vol fans thanks to his 42-inch vertical leap. Asumnu’s senior year at UT also coincided with head coach Bruce Pearl’s first season in Knoxville. Today, Asumnu plays on the NBA Development League’s Rio Grande Valley Vipers with hopes of reaching the NBA. The former Vol sat down with The Daily Beacon to talk about UT’s run in the remainder of the NCAA Tournament. Q: You’ve been following Tennessee’s tournament run. What do you think of the Vols’ chances against Ohio State in the Sweet Sixteen and possibly reaching the program’s first-ever Elite Eight? A: I think they’ve got a really good chance. I like the way they’ve been playing. They’ve just got to
stay focused and take it one game at a time. I know Coach Pearl’s getting the guys ready and making sure they’re focused on the task at hand. It’s going to be a great opportunity for them. And I know, with our region, we have a really good chance of reaching that Final Four. Q: Having played for Bruce Pearl (2005-2006) and seen what he’s built at UT with five straight NCAA Tournament appearances, what do you think of the job he’s done at Tennessee? A: He’s done a great job. He’s an unbelievable coach. I was so happy when he came there. From the first meeting when we sat down and talked with him, he got to know all the players. From that point on, it was about winning championships and putting ourselves in the position to be the best we could possibly be. And it shows with what he’s done in the past five years, getting to the NCAA Tournament every year. Q: From what you’ve watched in the tournament so far, who do you
think on UT’s roster is the key to a win over Ohio State? A: I think Wayne Chism, the big guy inside. He’s got to come out ready to go. J.P. Prince, Scotty Hopson coming out and making big shots. And of course, with the point guard play, with whoever’s in there with Maze or Goins, just controlling the game. But Wayne, J.P. and Hopson, those three guys right there, if they come out focused and ready to go, I think everybody else will fall into place. Coach Pearl and that staff, they’re going to have them ready. Q: The first two rounds of the NCAA Tournament have seen their share of upsets. What upset in this year’s tournament has been the most surprising to you so far? A: Well, you know, Kansas losing (to Northern Iowa in the second round) was surprising. Wasn’t expecting that. This year, I feel like it’s wide open. This time of year, it’s all about who’s clicking at the right time. It doesn’t matter what you did before … whoever’s clicking at the
right time and playing well together as a team, it’s wide open, the way I see it. Q: Who would you like to see win this year’s NCAA title? A: Oh, I was rooting for Tennessee from the get-go. I want my school to win. But I was rooting for Kansas also; that was just a surprising upset. But I’m rooting for my school. I feel like Tennessee could get there whether it’s this year or years to come. Coach Pearl has done a great job with the players he got, and the players are buying into what he’s doing. I’m going to ride my school all the way. Q: What is your prediction for OSU/UT? A: I think it’ll be a close • Photo courtesy of NBAE/Getty Images game. I don’t think it’ll be a blowout or nothing like Former Vol basketball player Stanley Asumnu that. It depends on how plays in the NBA D-League for the Rio Grande the game’s going. But I’ll Valley Vipers. Asumnu was a four-year player for just say 65-60 Tennessee.

All-American OT Douglas leaving Vols
March 26, 2010
Friday, Mar. 26 — Baseball LSU Knoxville 7 p.m. Men’s Basketball Ohio State St. Louis, Mo. 7:07 p.m. Men’s Swimming NCAA Championships Columbus, Ohio All Day Men’s Track FSU Relays Tallahassee, Fla. All Day Women’s Track Stanford Invitational Select Events Only Stanford, Calif. All Day
Matt Dixon Staff Writer The Tennessee football team put their pads on for the first time this week in spring practice on Thursday, but the biggest news was who would not be suiting up for the Vols this season. In a meeting with head coach Derek Dooley on Thursday, offensive tackle Aaron Douglas informed Dooley that he wanted to be released from his scholarship because he did not want to be a part of the football program anymore. The Freshman All-American had been absent from practice dealing with what Dooley called “personal issues.” “It’s unfortunate that we never got a chance to coach him,” Dooley said after practice Thursday. “Our concern is not with who we don’t have, but who we do have.” Without Douglas, Tennessee will have to replace all five starters from last year’s offensive line. Pads On After a week of non-contact drills, Dooley was eager to see the team engage in physical drills.
"The first thing [coaches] do is see who shows dramatic differences over time between pads and shorts," Dooley said after practice Tuesday. Dooley added that some players start impressing coaches more once pads go on because of their toughness and explosive power on the field. Emphasizing Tackling The Vols spent much of Tuesday’s practice working on tackling under defensive coordinator Justin Wilcox. Since arriving in Knoxville, Dooley has stressed the importance of having solid fundamentals on the football field. "It doesn't matter what scheme you put in defensively, if you're not a good tackling football team, you've got no chance," Dooley said. "We're going to work tackling a lot." Special Teams Importance A former special teams coordinator under Nick Saban at LSU, Dooley places a high value on having a very sound kicking and kick coverage unit. "Special teams is a critical component of winning," Dooley said Tuesday.
"We've got a lot of work to do in finding the right guys and then understanding how to work at it and get good at it." Running back David Oku, who led the team in kick return yards and average last season, is finding out how important special teams are to Dooley and special teams coach Eric Russell. “If we aren’t top five in the country [in special teams], then [Dooley] is going to be mad at us,” Oku said after practice
Thursday. King Injured Linebacker Greg King left practice early Thursday on crutches with a left knee injury. The severity of the injury is not yet known, but Dooley said that King tweaked the knee that he had previous problems with. Brown Sighting Running back Bryce Brown was in attendance at practice Thursday. Not currently a member of the football team, Brown is still enrolled in class at UT. Buying Into the System
With the football program entering its third straight season under a new head coach, the players will again have to adjust to another coach’s system. Through four practices, senior wide receiver Gerald Jones believes this team is adjusting well. “A lot of people are buying in [to this coaching staff’s philosophy] because they want to win so bad,” Jones said. “[With] all the adversity this team has been though in the past three or four years is crazy.”

UT players huddle up after a drill in spring practice. Thursday’s workouts marked the end of the first week of Derek Dooley’s first spring practices as head coach at Tennessee.
