We’ve grown to know and despise many characters in the Kentucky-Tennessee basketball rivalry over the years, so I thought it’d be a good time to catch everyone up to speed on where some of our favorite former Vols are
Here are some of the many questions Big Blue Nation has about Vols from the past and the best answers I could come up with after tireless research through
public arrest records Google.
Where is Ron Slay?
Ron Slay and his headband are averaging 17 points per game for Givova Scafati in Italy.
What record label did Swiperboy sign with?
I think you mean Renaldo Woolridge. He transferred to the University of sunny Southern California and is averaging four minutes per game as a senior this season.
He still raps.
Scotty Hopson, he’s in the league, right?
You are correct. Scotty Hopson plays for Hapoel Eilat in the Israeli Basketball Super League.
I shouldn’t have to ask this, but, Tyler Smith, he’s in prison, correct?
Actually, Tyler Smith has managed to avoid criminal activity — or kept it well hidden — since being kicked off the Volunteers basketball team for playing with guns and marijuana. He is also playing in Israel.
And that other Smith?
JaJuan. He’s overseas, too.
And the other one?
Jordan Smith. No clue.
What about Major Wingate? What’s he up to these days?
Last I heard, Major Wingate was in jail for not paying child support, but that’s been a couple years ago.
Brian Williams has to be in jail. Don’t tell me otherwise.
Brian Williams is not in jail. No. He plays basketball across the pond in Malaysia.
Where is that Dan Bradshaw guy?
You mean Dane. Dane Bradshaw is the President and COO of Chattanooga-based Thunder Enterprises and Taxi On Demand. He started Taxi On Demand in 2009, likely because he saw all of his teammates get DUIs in college. Thunder Enterprises sells high-end homes and stuff.
He’s back in Knoxville to finish his degree and he occasionally posts on Tennessee message boards.
Is Steven Pearl still sucking from his father’s teat?
No, he’s still in Knoxville furthering his education and tweeting about Kyle Wiltjer.
Tubby should’ve recruited Chris Lofton. I liked him.
Yes. I agree.
