Davenport meeting today on campus with Dr. Joe DiPietro and others, as well as attending the Lady Vols’ upset win against No. 6 Notre Dame, it appears Davenport’s search for a new athletic director has a clear-cut favorite and familiar name: Phillip Fulmer. While sources Sunday night and into Monday morning were continuing to indicate Davenport is adamant she wants UT to interview sitting athletics directors, with a source indicating last Friday was the deadline for interested potential candidates to submit their curriculum vitae and qualifications, Fulmer has gone from wishful candidate early in the process to replace the forced-out Hart to off the radar and now back front and center. PREVIOUS STORY:KNOXVILLE – Could Phillip Fulmer be the next Tennessee athletic director? Fans have talked about it for years, and the former coach has admitted in the past he might be interested, so could it really happen? ESPN’s Chris Low , a WBIR contributor, says according to sources, the answer is yes. Low calls Fulmera “prime candidate” to replace Dave Hart, whowill retire at the end of June. Fulmer would not confirm that to Low, but told him that, “I want what is best for UT.” The now 66 year old Fulmer spent more than three decades in Big Orange, as a player and coach. He was fired in 2008 after going 5-7.

LOUIS, MO (KTVI) There is a waiting list for a course on Kanye West at Washington University. The course is called, The Politics of Kanye West: Black Genius and Sonic Aesthetics. The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that there are 75 students enrolled. A description of the class from Washington University states , As a hip-hop artist Kanye West has had unprecedented impact on the sonic force of music, fashion, politics, and videography. Coupling his controversial moments, with his corpus of musical texts with special focus on sonic production, this course illuminates Mr. West as a case studey for interrogating the interplay between fame, gender, sexuality, and race. Mostly, we explore how racialized ways of doing iconography, complex ways of seeing, creates a distorted or reductive frame through which we see the black and famous. Nonetheless, the course oscillates with entertaining these nuances, while being entertained by the decade-long catalogue of music and visual imagery. Together, we extract the Politics of Mr. West in his music and life, while also illuminating the importance of a politics of genius-making in the larger arc of black pop culture tradition.
