Cooter’s Gone 

It’s a dark day here at the Flyer as we mourn the loss of one of our favorite college football players — Jim Bob Cooter. A walk-on quarterback for the Tennessee Vols, Cooter has been suspended from the team for allegedly distributing moonshine from the UT locker room and shooting railroad crossing signs with his pellet gun. Okay, we made some of that up. He was actually charged with a DUI over the weekend.

Here’s to you, Cooter! It's Rocky Top's loss.
