It's pretty interesting how a former player who had no significant time in the NFL is getting all this notice for a DUI.  I guess it has something to do with people reveling in this kind of news story.

I've heard his name A LOT recently, and I otherwise make no attempt to pay any attention to UT athletics. Is he a particularly good/respected radio host?

He's pretty popular in the area as an alumnus and host.  He's got a big Twitter following and is very gracious to the university for the opportunities he got through athletics.  I don't follow him much more closely than that.  It just seems weird to try and blow a DUI out of proportion and shine a big old light on someone who has been open about his struggle with addiction.

I don't get it either.

I don't get why this is a "big" story either, but it's also weird I've seen his name a lot too otherwise. Not too long ago Deadspin picked up a story he recanted about Mark Sanchez being a doofus, and then his remarks on the (I guess still pending) rape case regarding Vanderbilt players were also used.

He does seem like a decent dude, sucks he has long-standing substance abuse issues from the sounds of it.

Just because it made Fark, doesn't mean it's getting "all this notice".  It's a link to a local news site, and the story didn't make the top stories in either their "Football" or their "Local Colleges" sections.

It's getting a lot of notice here, and I'm not surprised by that, but it actually is the fact that it's made it to Fark that I'm questioning.

Fark is based in Kentucky.  I'm not from around there but I figure they're probably close enough to get news about you guys.

Add him to the list, and put him up against the wall.

I thought they were shining a light on his failure at recovery, since his battle with drugs and alcohol is now well documented, and he speaks and has seminars based on his recovery.

Ouch!

The media in Knoxville hates The Volunteers.  They will report anything that might shed a bad light on the athletic programs.  Just last year they reported the QB getting cited for "horseplaying" on a jetski.
