Where Are They Now? (Tennessee Vols Edition)

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 incarcerated today.

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.

Enjoy.

 

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.

Isiah Victor?

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.

    Pearl could recruit talent pretty well. Character on the other hand, not so much.

    Fantastic summary Drew. Although I liked and miss Bruce Pearl, he did recruit some thugs.

    Somebody can fact check me, but I believe Wayne chism was the only player during Pearl’s reign that was on the team for four years without being thrown in jail or out of school for grades, drugs, or some other crime. I’ll be the rest of the players hated him. Cam Tatum was the 4th guy in the car with Tyler Smith, Wiliams, Goins, and the guns, booze, and weed. Don’t forget Romar Smith. He was another jailbird. Bobby (“That’s 50”)Maze.

    Seriously, we can’t just inquire of their whereabouts & reflect on the dismay we had for them – but you have to assume they’re in jail. Childish writing. Remembering is fun, casting dispersions is tasteless.

    Beautiful Post! Now that TT is on staff maybe you will have more time for random posts like this instead of the required news reporting. Good job!

    Some of the more ‘hateable’ guys are not doing well in life. But people like Chism, Slay, B Williams, Goins, and Maze are good people that are doing something any of us would love to do: play a game for a living.

    Ramar Smith was a bad dude–in fact he was the reason Tyler Smith had that gun in the car–R. Smith threatened to kill T. Smith’s kid.

    Also, Woolridge didn’t ‘transfer’ to USC. He graduated and got a 5th year grad school eligibility type thing. He’s from that area originally.

    Yeah…it would have been nice to see Lofton as a wildcat. However, Chris had the opportunity to start at Tennessee as a freshman. You’re out of your mind if you think he would have started over Kelenna Azubuike.
