The University of Tennessee is currently being investigated by the federal government for sexual violence, according to a report by The Tennessean. The investigation was launched by the U.S. Department of Education's Office of Civil Rights on June 29.
This concerns the Volunteers' football program, as six players from Tennessee's roster last season have been accused of sexual assault.
ESPN's Danny Kanell is wondering if fellow ESPN employee Paul Finebaum will spend as much time on the Tennessee investigation as he did the Florida State investigation surrounding Jameis Winston.
">@finebaum will spend the amount of time on the allegations at Tennessee as he did on FSU???

The answer, most likely, is no.
This is true.
Tennessee's football program has yet to release a statement regarding the investigation.
