New York Times sports reporter Pete Thamel "broke" the story of the NCAA’s investigation into Tennessee’s football recruiting practices. After inititial investigation into his story, there seems to be a stink arising from little Pahokee, Fla., which drifts over to Gainesville and all the way north to a couple of offices in mid-town Manhattan. The Players - * Pete Thamel – College sports reporter for the New York Times * Connor Ennis – Sports department staff editor, New York Times * Chris Dunkley – Pahokee football prospect being recruited by Tennessee and Florida * Ariel Alejo - Pahokee principal, Florida Alum, Gators fan * Urban Meyer – Head coach, University of Florida Lets start with a flashback to 1998. In the first game of Tennessee’s national championship run, the Vols narrowly defeated the Donovan McNabb led Syracuse Orangemen. A Tennessee loss looked eminent until a fourth down pass interference call allowed the Vols to move within range for a last second field goal for the win. The pass interference call led to a fervent outcry of SEC referee bias by the Syracuse area media. Conner Enis and Pete Thamel were both Syracuse students and writing for the Syracuse Post Standard and The Daily Orange at the time. Getting Interesting?
