I recall when East Tennessee State University had football the last time and I could count on the Saturday and Sunday Press to carry accounts of the week’s fights and drunkenness of the football players.Now it starts again, and the first huddle has yet to happen. Zero tolerance, coach. One strike and you are out. How is it such a wise decision by past President Paul Stanton was overturned so quickly by the new guy? Who needs a football program? Let’s focus on the primary goal — education. Or it should be. Sometimes, I wonder.HANK NYSTROMJohnson City
