The college football world watched these developments in Knoxville, with all sorts of opinions flying throughout Twitter. The Athletic’s Stewart Mandel wrote that Tennessee and Greg Schiano “need to walk away at this point” after the intense backlash.
Tennessee and Schiano need to walk away at this point. The backlash is beyond toxic. You don’t recover from it.

This will go down as a memorable day, with or without Schiano as the Vols’ next coach.
