Paging Brandon Warren . . .

You'll recall that Warren was the tight end who caught 28 passes for 301 yards and a touchdown for Florida State back in 2006. He asked out of his scholarship to return home and play for Tennessee, and Bobby Bowden said, "Banana!" which in this case means "no," and a faculty panel affirmed banana on appeal:

It is the determination of the faculty panel that the information presented by Brandon Warren does not rise to the level of ‘objective evidence that proves the student-athlete’s extraordinary personal hardship’ and is insufficient to support his appeal of the NCAA and FSU transfer policy. Panel members were unanimous in their conclusions that the appeal should be denied and the transfer rule should be enforced.

And then he disappeared. The message board mill indicates that he might have enrolled at Pellissippi State and was going to try to enroll at Tennessee for the summer sessions and then file an appeal with the NCAA to gain eligibility to play this fall.

But nobody really knows. He's not on the 2008 roster, which isn't good news. Unless I hear otherwise, I'm assuming he won't be a Vol this year.
