Tennessee had two other scholarship QB's besides Nico sitting on the sideline that are obviously better than Milton but they were completely overlooked. Either would have given a better chance to win. Heupel's decision to go with Milton all the way through this season has me wondering why and what did he promise/receive that caused him to stick with such a loser like Milton.
Personally, I think it was ridiculous to release him. They should have kept him around and put him to work doing something, anything to help the new staff and team. If he wants to leave and back out of his contract fine but no way I would let him go and collect that money for nothing.
