Tennessee Safety Janzen Jackson Dismissed from Team

It seems like the bad news keeps piling up for SEC teams this week.  Head Coach Derek Dooley announced today that he has dismissed safety Janzen Jackson.  Jackson was expected to play a big part as the leader in the defensive backfield this season.  Last year he lead the team with 5 interceptions and also accounted for 69 tackles.

This is disappointing news for all the Vol faithful.  Jackson recently had to re-enroll in school after taking the spring semester off to deal with personal issues.  Dooley did not explain the dismissal but there is word that a failed drug test was behind it.
