Bryce Brown has expressed his desire to transfer from the Tennessee football program, and has since made no further statements to contradict that desire. This news is exactly two months old today, so you can understand Derek Dooley's frustration at still being asked about it twice a day:
"There's been no new news on Bryce. Everybody loves creating the story. Here are the facts: The facts are we reached a point prior to the spring when we said he was going to leave the program. And there's been no indication that he was coming back, since that time. And, so, this has been just tremendous fodder for the fans, to speculate. I don't know what else to say on it."
But your polite indignation is new to them, Coach! It's new to everyone who has never gotten to ask you his-or-her own self, every, every time. There's always the chance you'd choose to withhold news concerning your team's highest-profile get in 2009 just for funsies, after all, and we've all got column inches to fill.
