Dunagan will not
seek UT presidency
Only days after telling UTM adminis-
trators that media “distractions” would
not interfere with the University moving
forward, John Shumaker has resigned his
position of UT President, effective
Governor Phil Bredesen addressed
reporters this morning in a news confer-
ence, where he read a prepared media
“The past several weeks have been very
difficult for The University of Tennessee
family. UT is a wonderful university with
many opportunities and it pained me as
governor to watch this happening,”
While the resignation is effective
immediately, the Governor said that he
will recommend that Shumaker be paid
his salary and deferred compensation
through the end of this year, but will be
asked to vacate his office today and his
home within 60 days.
UTM Chancellor Nick Dunagan
echoed Bredesen’s feeling that it has been
a difficult month for the entire UT fami-
“Today’s announcement provides us an
opportunity to move ahead with the
important work of the University. What
we do as a university is more important
than who is president, chancellor, or any
other position,” Dunagan said.
In his resignation letter, Shumaker said
that "I believe that this step is in the best
interest of the University. I simply can-
not permit our students, faculty, staff,
alumni and trustees to be distracted from
their important work by letting the con-
troversies of the past several weeks con-
“I have enjoyed my association with
the University and with you. I wish the

Shumaker’s contract was to keep him
on the job until 2008, with an annual
salary of $365,000 annually, along with
incentives, a personal vehicle, a home,
and many other benefits. His total com-
pensation package for this year would
have likely totaled over $730,000.
Shumaker is the second UT President
to resign in recent years. Wade Gilley left
UT in 2001 after news of a romantic
relationship with an administrator
became public. He also served less than
two years on the job.
Emerson “Ely” Fly served as interim
President during a nationwide search for
a replacement. Fly now heads the UT

While rumors run rampant of about
who will be the next President of the
University of Tennessee System, one
candidate says he isn't even in the run-
UTM Chancellor Nick Dunagan told
faculty members in the annual fall meet-
ing that the "chains won't be necessary"
to keep him in Martin. A faculty mem-
ber posed the question to him at the end
of the meeting, asking if he was aware
that some student leaders had said that
they would "chain him to his desk" to
keep him here.
"My only interest in the presidency is
focused solely on someone who appre-
ciates this campus, and someone that I
can work with as your chancellor,"
Dunagan said to open the meeting.
"The situation in Knoxville is both
sad and disgusting," said Dunagan. "It is
time to move on to more important
Trustee William Stokely III and
House Speaker Jimmy Naifeh have said
that they would support an effort to
name Joe Johnson as interim president
until another search can be completed.
Johnson, now 70, previously served an
eight-year term from 1991-1999.
"I don't think you are going to see a
search firm hired for this," Dunagan
No official releases have been made
by the UT Board of Trustees or the
Governor's office, but many are specu-
The Knoxville News Sentinel reports
that Dr. Margaret Perry is a potential
candidate. Perry served as chancellor
from 1986 - 1997. She was the first
women to serve as an executive officer
in the University of Tennessee system.
Perry retired in 1997 and is currently
the dean of graduate studies at UT
ETSU President Paul Stanton has also
been named by the Sentinel as a poten-
tial successor. Stanton has served as
president of ETSU for seven years.
Chattanoogan.Com, an online only
publication, reports that UTC
Chancellor Bill Stacy is also interested in
the position should he be approached.
The Nashville City Paper preemptive-
ly endorsed former Vice President A1
Gore on Tuesday, saying "We can think

helm of our flagship university than a
man who combines educational acumen

August 18, 2003
What's this? UT President
Shumaker forced out of his pres-
idency by a shopping spree
lifestyle? Spent more than
$160,000 of UT's money?
Travelgate? Yes, it seems so. The
second highest-paid public uni-
versity president in the nation has
been caught stealing. He used UT
credit cards for his personal pur-
chases. He used UT's cash to
finance home entertainment cen-
ters, world travel, and spent near-
ly 22 thousand dollars of UT's
money on liquor. He went on an
1 8 month shopping spree.
Let’s see: Shumaker was an
employee of the University of
Tennessee's, he spent over
$160,000 of university cash,
money that he did not need (nor
was supposed) to spend, and has
been forced from his job. We
know what that would be called
in court. Embezzlement. That's
when you steal money from the
people who entrust you with it.
Embezzlement can be a felony
and is punishable by a prison
term. You know what Shumaker
got? Retirement and a $365,000
severance package. Not bad,
when you deserve to go to jail.
This isn't even the first time
Shumaker has done something
that sounds illegal.
In the mid-1990's he received a
$10,000 gift from Hyundai after
rewarding them with a $110,000
training contract from Central
Connecticut State University,
where he was president at the
That sounds a lot like a bribe.
Why isn't Connecticut investigat-
ing? The statute of limitations is
It isn't enough that he was paid
$733,550 a year and used over
$160,000 more. We are giving
him money to leave!
The tuition that has been rising
at UT schools goes to pay the UT
president. His pay is coming out
of an education budget that is
taking regular cuts.
When a state spends a phe-
nomenal amount of money on an
embezzler, all while woefully
undercutting their budget, you
should start to ask, "What the
hell is going on?"
The answer? Who knows?
We have given up.
If this sleazy university presi-
dent can go off to party, buy
plane tickets and Persian rugs, all
on our dime, and then get away
with a bundle of cash, who is to
say that it isn't the American way?
Isn't he showing other educa-
tors and future leaders how easy
it is to do whatever you want?
Hasn’t UT shown us that if you
plead ignorance, you can get away
Companies all over the country
are being caught stealing from
their shareholders. Why should
education be any different?
Sounds like he got a pretty
good deal. Get paid three quar-
ters of a millions dollars, fly
around in a free jet, book free
vacations, upgrade your hotel
rooms and buy as much liquor as
We’re sure that there won't be a
problem filling the position.
Everyone will be applying. Who
can blame them?

Letter from the Chancellor
This past week a lot of time
and effort went into welcoming
the freshmen to UT Martin. It
was a good week, now it is time
to focus on welcoming back our
returning students and our trans-
fer students. We are glad you're
here! Let me update you on a
few new things that will be of
interest to you during the semes-
1. Facilities Fee
Implemented - Yes, this fee is
new. The $25-a-semester fee will
be used exclusively for classroom
and student-area improvements.
A committee of two students
appointed by the SGA and two
faculty members appointed by
the Faculty Senate will meet with
Vice Chancellor for Finance and
Administration A1 Hooten and
Director of the Physical Plant
Mike Davis to determine the
most acute needs on campus to
be addressed by this fund of
approximately $250,000. You
should see some improvements
by the end of the semester, but
the full impact will take place
later in the academic year and
over the summer of 2004.
2. Demolition of Austin
Peay Hall and Development of
Housing - Vice Chancellor for
Student Affairs Katie High will
be working closely with students
and an architectural firm to
develop Phase I of our new on-
campus apartments. It is our
plan to have Phase I ready to
occupy by Fall 2005.
3. Martin Place Stalled — We
recognize that the University's
efforts to purchase Martin Place
have been confusing for stu-
dents; the Department of
Housing; and, quite frankly, all of
us. The University of Tennessee
Foundation had agreed to pur-
chase the property, but was not
able to secure the necessary
funding. Acquisition of this
property remains in our long-
range plan. We are currently
working with the ownership of
Martin Place to incorporate these
residents into the mainstream of
campus information and activi-
4. Alumni Gym Renovated -
Alumni Gym has undergone a
significant renovation and will
reopen for student use on
December 1. This facility is the
oldest building on campus and
the renovation was funded by
special State appropriation.
Upon reopening, this facility will
be dedicated to student organiza-
tion activities, and will house
David Belote and the Office of
5. Tuition Increased — All
UT institutions increased tuition
by nine percent while the Board
of Regents institutions increased
their tuition by 14 percent. We
recognize that the tuition increas-
es have been substantial over the
past four years. The tuition
increases generated approximate-
ly $1.6 million in additional rev-
enue. The State of Tennessee
decreased our appropriation by
$2.5 million this year, and we also
had to return approximately $1.4
million from last year's appropri-
ation. You can easily see that ris-
ing tuition is a direct result of the
reduction in State appropriations.
We are striving to be good stew-
ards of both tax dollars and
tuition dollars. We are also com-
mitted to providing students with
the very best educational experi-
ence within the current level of
funding. I ask for your help in
making the case that funding is
critical for higher education and
in spreading the word that col-
lege graduates are good for the
economic and cultural vitality of
the State of Tennessee.
6. Wireless Connection
Installed in University Center,
Library, and Business
Building — These three build-
ings now provide wireless access,
and we hope to bring other
buildings and the quad area into
the wireless environment as
funds become available.
This column is much too long
and I will close by once again
stating how great it is to have our
students back on campus and in
the community. We missed you.
Although, I have primarily writ-
ten about funding issues and
buildings, the most important
consideration on a campus
involves what goes on inside
those buildings and how we use
those tuition dollars. We have a
great faculty and staff who are
dedicated to helping you achieve
a quality education. I ask you to
help us. Yes, an important part
of college is having fun and mak-
ing friends, but remember why
you came here. We want to be
your partner for a better future.
I've often heard the idea that
students who have educated
opinions on things aren't to be
trusted. I've heard students claim
that protesters are only protest-
ing for attention. A lot of people
think that if you want to change
something you are a troublemak-
er. What ever happened to "the
squeaky wheel gets the grease?"
The students that are willing to
back up their opinions now are
the ones that people will be lis-
tening to. They are the ones that
will influence decisions.
This paper belongs to the stu-
dents, whether or not we take
ownership is up to us. The first
place any student can have an
impact on this paper is in the
opinions section. You don't have
to be a communications major to
post an article here. You don't
have to be on staff. All you have
to do is have an opinion you want
I don't want to sound dramatic,
but it is true. Students at this uni-
versity have as much power as
they are willing to flex. Ignoring
everything that is going on
around you will only make you
powerless. Start saying what you
want, what you appreciate and
what you need changed. The
administration will hear it, the
faculty will hear it, and other stu-
dents will hear it.
You pay for this paper. You can
have a hand in what it produces.
This section exists for you.

Hall named Dean of College of Education
A new dean
named to lead
of Tennessee at
Dr. Mary Lee
Hall, currently the assistant dean
for the University of Memphis
College of Education, will assume
the dean’s position in September
at UT Martin.
Originally from McKenzie,
Tenn., Hall taught at the elemen-
tary and high school levels and
once owned and operated her
own day-care center.
She is currently president-elect
of the Tennessee Association of
Colleges for Teacher Education
and is chair of the Alternative
Licensure Online Degree
Program Committee for the
Tennessee Board of Regents.
Her experience will be applied
to the continued development of
the Bachelor of Undergraduate
Studies Degree (B.U.S.)
Dr. Tom Rakes, UT Martin vice
chancellor for academic affairs,
said that Hall is respected
throughout the state, including

Highlights of news
over the summer
Martin Place deal
The University of Tennessee
Foundation’s proposed purchase
of Martin Place Apartments on
West Peach Street to be used for
student living is not likely to go as
originally planned. In an inter-
view with The Press Wednesday,
Ely Fly, president of the founda-
tion, said, "The bank backed out
on the agreement."
In February of this year, the
office of University Relations at
UTM made public a statement
saying, "The University of
Tennessee Foundation Inc.
(UTF) and Place Collegiate
Properties LC have agreed in
principle to sell Martin Place, a
privatized student housing com-
munity, to the UTF."
Soon after the announcement
was released, the university began
a campaign to get students to
sign up to live in the apartments.
According to the press release,
the new facility would become
part of UTM’s inventory when
the ownership was supposed to
change hands in March 2003.

As superintendent of Shelby
County Schools, Dr. Bobby
Webb considers the "big picture"
as he makes important decisions.
He advised UT Martin graduates
to do the same in seeking success
A 1970 UT Martin graduate
with a degree in music education,
Webb said he has given many
high school graduation speeches
during 15 years as a superinten-
dent, so he began with an abbre-
viated version of the advice he
has given many audiences.
"Life is not fair, get used to it.
... People are more important
than things. ... ’’ he said, summa-
rizing past commencement
addresses. And, he added, "If you
don’t do anything else in life, love
someone and let someone love
Webb then turned to his main
theme, telling the graduates that
commencement is an appropriate
time "to step back and take a look
at the big picture of your life."
He said the most successful peo-
ple he knows accomplish this by
routinely doing three things.
"One, they step back from time
to time from their narrow focus
of their responsibilities and think
about just how all the parts relate
and how they interact with each
other," Webb said.
UT Martin Chancellor Nick
Dunagan presided over the cere-
mony and conferred the degrees.
About 125 graduates participated

Pigskin hopes soar with 2003 ’Hawks
Most people wouldn’t dream of juggling the
Christmas holiday, postseason football playoffs
against perennial power Georgia Southern and
interviewing for their first head coaching job. Then
again, most people don’t have the energy and desire
of 35-year-old New Hampshire grad Matt Griffin.
Celebrating Christmas in New England was no
problem for Griffin. Helping lead the University of
Maine to a win over Georgia Southern in the second
round of the I-AA football playoffs was elusive.
Securing his first head football coaching job was
easy, but the travel was just as ominous as Santa's
around-the-world venture, when you consider
Griffin had to fly into Nashville from Statesboro,
Ga., interview in Martin and then fly back to Maine.
Griffin made two trips from Martin to Maine and
back look like a lunchtime run through the local
After being named head coach Dec. 12, Griffin
hired a staff and hit the recruiting trail before the
ball could fall in Times Square. When Cupid pulled
back that bow with his annual arrow of love in
February, Griffin and the Skyhawks had inked 30
players from seven states and laid the foundation
for an exciting brand of football. The Skyhawk pre-
miere will be unveiled Aug. 28 at Hardy M. Graham
Stadium when Pioneer League foe Austin Peay State
University invades Martin for a Thursday night con-
When fall camp opened Aug. 4, Griffin and his
staff welcomed back 18 starters and 26 lettermen.
The returning players posted a 2-10 worksheet a
year ago under the direction of Sam McCorkle and
interim head coach Johnny Jernigan. The Skyhawks
failed to win an OVC game in six attempts. After a
decade of Division I-AA football, the Skyhawks are
desperately seeking to put the brakes on an embar-
rassing 42-game OVC losing streak.
Among the returning players are senior captains
Lee Lawrence and Michael Jackson, both offensive
linemen, and defensive end John Gray. Jackson has
started in 25 games while Lawrence has started in
29 games, including 28 consecutive games for the
Skyhawks. Lawrence was an All-OVC first team
member as a sophomore, and was voted preseason
first team All-OVC this past season. Gray has start-
ed in 15 games and played in 28 games in three
years. Last year, Gray made 35 tackles, five for a
loss, one sack, broke up two passes, and recovered a
fumble. Martin native Brent Harris returns for his
junior season, and he will handle all of the place
kicking chores and possibly the punting duties.
Harris kicked 13 of 15 extra points and 11 of 16
field goals, with 51 yards being his longest against
Tusculum College. Brady Wahlberg, who scored
four touchdowns against Eastern Illinois and threw
for more than 1,000 yards in limited playing time,
returns for his sophomore season.
Griffin and his staff will abort the option attack
implemented two years ago in favor of a pro style
offense that fancies a wide-open passing attack.
“We will throw it all over the yard,” Griffin said.
The Skyhawks have lived by the rushing game the
past two seasons. The Skyhawks rushed 541 times
for 1,732 yards and 16 touchdowns last season.
When it comes to passing, they threw the ball 318
times for 1,456 yards and five touchdowns a year
ago. The Skyhawks enjoyed two big offensive games
last season against Southeast Missouri State and
Eastern Illinois. In both cases, the Skyhawks relied
on a passing attack to set up the running game.
Despite the two big point productions, the
Skyhawks averaged just 15.5 points per game last
season. To Griffin’s credit, he served as an assistant
coach at UTM during the 1997 and 1998 seasons
under head coach Jim Marshall. In that first season,
Marshall favored the run. Calling the shots as the
offensive coordinator for Marshall, Griffin's
Skyhawks rushed for 1,106 yards. In his second sea-
son, Griffin ordered the pass on a regular basis. The
Skyhawks almost doubled their passing yardage that
season as well as doubled their point production.
While serving as the offensive line coach at the
University of Maine this past season, Griffin’s line-
men allowed Maine quarterbacks to throw for more
than 2,200 yards and advance to the Division I-AA
The Maine influence will continue at UTM this
season because Griffin hired former University of
Maine and Arena Football League quarterback
Mickey Fein to serve as the offensive coordinator.
house set Aug. 21
The administrative staff and the football coaches’
wives at UTM will host an open house and tours
from 5-7 p.m. Thursday, Aug. 21, at the Bob Carroll
Immediately following the open house at 7 pm,
the Skyhawk football team will conduct a scrim-
mage in Hardy M. Graham Stadium.
Admission for the scrimmage is free.
The Football Building, named after former UTM
head football coach Bob Carroll, was dedicated and
officially opened this past October during the
homecoming game against Southeast Missouri
“This will give our fans and all those interested in
touring the new building one last chance to do so
before we kick off our 2003 season,” said UTM
athletics director Phil Dane. “Fans will also have a
chance to meet our new coaching staff and their
The Skyhawks are under the direction of first-
year head coach Matt Griffin, a former assistant
coach at the University of Maine.
Other members of the coaching staff include
Andy Rondeau, Mickey Fein, Johnny Jernigan,
Brian Scott, Mike Zapolnik, DeLane Fitzgerald,
Jason Seapker and Dwayne Wilmot.

Guess what Fein likes to do? Pass the ball. Here’s a
look at the Skyhawks’ cast of characters.
Brady Wahlberg, a sophomore from Florida, is
the only returning Skyhawk QB. He started three
games, played in all 11, and threw for 1,145 yards.
He scored four touchdowns. Wahlberg averaged
111 yards of total offense per game last season.
Wahlberg threw for 198 yards against Eastern
Illinois last year, and had a 121.70 pass efficiency
rating. Chad Nash, also a sophomore and also from
Florida, was signed as a quarterback a year ago, but
was moved to wide receiver before the season start-
ed. Both Wahlberg and Nash enjoyed a solid spring
“I am very pleased by the progress of both quar-
terbacks,” Griffin said. “They both showed tremen-
dous characteristics that you want in a quarterback.”

Game Notes - UTM vs. Austin Peav
UTM leads the series 22-16 and has won eight of the past nine
meetings with Austin Peay State University, located in Clarksville.
The Aug 28 game this year marks the first meeting with Austin
Peay in six years. Coach Carroll McCray starts his first year as head
of the Governors. Austin Peay went 7-4 last season in the Pioneer
Conference and is returning 50 lettermen and 17 starters.
Quarterback Pat Murphy, who shared duties a year ago, returns
to run the show. Also in the backfield will be Quea Williams, who
was second on the team in rushing last season, and the top receiv-
er for the Govs, Pat Curran.
‘Hopes’ continued from Page 6
Griffin says the starting QB job
is up for grabs, and newcomer
Brett Hall, a transfer from
Temple University, could take
over the starting job.
With the conversion to the
passing game, the Skyhawks have
moved tailback Damien Harris to
the wide receiver position. That
move leaves Arthur Bryant and
Andrew Staten in the backfield.
Injuries slowed down the entire
backfield last season. Harris led
the pack a year ago with 322
yards rushing. Bryant, who only
played in two games last season,
rushed for 98 yards on 14
attempts. Staten played in 11
games a year ago and rushed for
116 yards on 32 carries. Griffin
said the coaching staff was
impressed with Bryant, who had
a solid spring camp.
The receivers will be a key part
of the Skyhawk offense this sea-
son. Senior Damien Harris will
serve as the team leader. He
moves to the receiving corps
from the stable of running backs
that the Skyhawks used last year.
Harris caught 21 passes for 243
yards last season.
“We are certainly not as deep as
we need to be at the receiver
position,” Griffin said. “We have
some newcomers who will have
to play right away.”
Sophomore Orentheus Taylor
returns to the wide receiver posi-
tion. He saw extensive action and
caught 24 passes for 270 yards
and a touchdown. The Skyhawks,
as a team last season, racked up
1,456 yards of receiving on 99
catches. They averaged 14.7 yards
a catch and 121.3 yards of receiv-
ing per game.
The offensive line was certain-
ly one of the strongest positions
for the Skyhawks when they went
into fall camp. The line is
anchored by seniors Lee
Lawrence (6-3, 290 pounds),
Michael Jackson (6-7, 285
pounds) and Marshall Romero
(6-3, 300 pounds). Lawrence
started in six games as a fresh-
man and has started in 28 con-
secutive games going back to his
freshman season. He was named
to the All-OVC first team as a
sophomore and he was named to
the preseason first All-OV C team
last season. Jackson has started in
the past 23 consecutive games
for the Skyhawks. He also started
in two games as a freshman.
Romero transferred to UTM
from Mississippi Delta
Community College last season.
After these three, things are wide
open, Griffin said.
“We have a few guys who need
to step it up and play.”
At the tight end position, one
of the primary receiving posi-
tions a year ago, is a battle
between Chris Alles and Jason
While the offensive line was
the strongest spot for the
Skyhawks, the defensive line will
be young. Senior John Gray (6-3,
235 pounds) will have to lead.
Gray, from Danville, Ky., is a
fifth-year senior. He made 39
total tackles last season with five
tackles for a loss, a sack, a fumble
recovery and a blocked kick. He’s
among the top four returning
tacklers. After Gray, Griffin said
he is committed to playing his
best personnel regardless if it is
three on four. “Our depth is
going to have to come from our
Senior Jordon Hankins (6-0,
225 pounds) will lead the line-
backer corps. Hankins led all line-
backers with 25 tackles last sea-
“We are going to be looking at
Jordon for leadership, as well as
his play on the field,” Griffin
said. “He’s an extremely hard

first year players will have to step

McMahan will play free safety,
while Bart Browder makes the
move from quarterback to free
Brent Harris, from Martin,
returns to the lineup for his jun-
ior season. He has led the
Skyhawks in scoring the past two
seasons. He made 13-of-15 extra
points last season and he con-
nected on 11 -of- 16 with his
longest field goal being from 51
yards out. He racked up 46
points. Harris also took over as
the Skyhawks’ punter midway
through the season. Harris had
18 punts for a total of 596 yards.
He averaged 33.1 yards per kick.
Newcomer Blake Butler could
step in to handle the punting
