This is absolutely insane. A Tennessee student made a layup, free throw, 3-pointer and half-court shot on Wednesday night and walked off the floor with $600. Six hundred dollars!
This should be a $5,000 prize minimum. A kid at Clemson made a 94-foot putt the other day — something I'd argue is at best equally difficult as making four shots including a 3-pointer and half-court shot under a time limit — and got $10,000.
That kid can get a nice used car and our guy can get a pair of AirPods Max.
This just makes Tennessee look bad. We're one of the richest athletic departments in the country and have recently been handing out millions to Josh Heupel and Danny White like we've got cash to burn and this kid only gets $600?
I am calling on the University of Tennessee to make this right. Knock $5,000 off whatever exorbitant price y'all are charging this kid for tuition these days. Do something.
