The rumor mill says that one of his guests was a lawyer representing
Alabama coaches in their lawsuit against NCAA, and that some interesting
bombs were dropped during the interview.

Yeah, I caught it.  He basically read an affadavit from a sports agent in
the Cincinnati area claiming UT paid Travis Henry, John Henderson and Fred
Weary many thousands of dollars during their fooseball career.  I'm sure it
will be posted on his site tomorrow at www.finebaum.com and you can listen
to it (and the live broadcast 3-7pm CDT) free o'charge.

Indeed. No wonder UT keeps raising ticket prices. We have to pay UF's
players, too.

Same reason Bama "paid" Kenny Smith to go to UT?

The audio and text summary (posted below) is on finebaum.com right now.

-------------------------------

Attorney Tommy Gallion, representing former Alabama Coaches Ronnie Cottrell
and Ivy Williams, says he has obtained copies of canceled checks and money
orders and an affidavit that provides a basis of proof that people have been
paying the University of Tennessee football players. Gallion told syndicated
radio host Paul Finebaum in an exclusive interview tonight that he is
contacting the Justice Department officials and the NCAA to follow up with
their own investigations. Some of this evidence was also seen by FInebaum
while he was visiting Memphis earlier in the week. Gallion says the
affidavit, from a participant in a scheme to filter the money to the
players, says regular payments of between $700 and $1000 was given to former
player Travis Henry. He says also a 1998 Ford Expedition was bought for
Henry, something he says school officials deliberately ignored when it
showed up on campus. He also says Travis enrolled without a high school
diploma. Gallion told Finebaum former All American defensive tackle John
Henderson was paid to keep him out of the NFL. The affidavit outlined the
method that Tennessee Head Football Coach Phillip Fulmer set up a $50,000
line of credit in a Tennessee bank and a payment to Henderson. Gallion also
says the affidavit accuses a booster or boosters of paying former player
Fred Weary from Montgomery. Gallion says he would not identify the person
making the allegations just yet, but he could describe the person making the
affidavit, who he asked former black football player and sports agent. The
affidavit was taken a week ago in Tennessee attorney Phillip Shanks
offices.<P>"This is a damn mess" says Gallion. He accuses the NCAA of
turning a blind eye to earlier reports that the University of Tennessee had
been paying players. Gallion accuses the NCAA of being a "selective
prosecutorial authority", going after the University of Alabama and not
other schools like Tennessee. Gallion's two clients lost their jobs in the
fallout from the NCAA sanctions leveled on Alabama.

I thought Cottrell and Williams worked for Alabama?

How much are these guys being paid to go along with this circus?

I am sure Tennessee made Bama pay Albert Means.

It really wasn't UA's fault at all.

Does that mean you have removed the "Aubarn is the University of
Alabama" sticker from your pick-em-up truck?
