I love God, guns, my wife and kids, and college football, and love my VOLS!!
Damn my Vols suck. Almost as bad as Vandy. That was the ugliest football game I have ever seen. Pure nasty ugly. Pass the sackcloth and ashes, another long December. Vandy tried their best to let us win, but Butch said no James you take it. Ugh.

If Jones gets TN to a bowl with the schedule we played, he should get some coach of the year award. We have 0 depth, not a great deal of talent, and an embarrassing defense. Yet if UT wins out we are bowling. Wow.

Woohoo!!! Spurrier may have coached his 13th game in Neyland, but he is 0-1 vs BUTCH!!!! You can't spell BUTCH without UT!!! GO VOLS!!!
Well said. Jordan McCrae also had a comment about Randle. Too bad they don't come back to TB for round two of a butt kicking. Rupp much tougher to play at, cause you have to beat the refs too.

Actually, "the voice" posted the definition on a previous article. Pretty cool device! I enjoy the site sir, it is great. I used to live in Tellico Plains, (I live in CA now) and I remember when you did that segment with I believe it was Mike Strange, and I think John Adams too on Fridays, with Sportstalk, the News Sentinel round table or something, anyways enjoyed listening to your opinions then, and enjoy the site now. Thanks for what you do!!

Sounds like the band director is fired up! Maybe that can translate to the football team staying fired up, and "poleaxing" SCAR.
What exactly is "poleaxed"? Like a pole getting axed in a single, fell swoop? Sounds good in the story though.
YES!! Out of the basement contender group!! That my friends is progress! I can live with the big caveat. Glad we have a bye week this week so we can get rested up for SCAR. While they are getting thumped around by Bielema's bulldozer, hopefully the most work our players do Saturday is answering the door for the pizza delivery guy. Go Vols!

Also, Forde is a good writer, but he has been wrong on things before. Like his Heisman vote for Woodson over Manning when he worked for the four letter. Yeah I went there, sorry still think he got shafted.
Condi was the diversity pick for the panel. I believe that is the only reason she was picked, and Barnhart said those exact words yesterday in support of her on Timmy's show. John, thanks for this article, good counter to the Fornelli types out there blasting people with a different opinion.

Some pundits were predicting a blow out, 51-24 anyone? TN played out of their minds for sure. Sorry for all the lost players, but that is football. A contact sport. UGA needed a miracle to win, and got it, but boy oh boy was it costly. Like what Jones is doing on Rocky Top. Did I mention UGA;s d is, umm, horrible? Mizz is licking their chops at getting a shot at that porous D.
1st, where are the brakes on this season, going by way too fast. Second, 51-24?! Wow, we suck, but not that level of suck. Realist says take the lumps, work on getting to a bowl, and out of the esteemed basement contender category. Unrealistic, crazy Vol fan says we win like 2004 baby!! Go Vols!!

And, how bout FU not covering 17? Yessiree made momma some $$ this weekend!
Answer is start a semi pro league that recruits and pays only the best high school athletes, and let the others that do not perform at that level go the standard (current) method of college. Then if they shine while at the lower level, they can be "drafted" into the semi pro league. There, all fixed!
Good article, I have not thought of it in those terms. I can totally see the ncaa banning writing on players sooner rather then later. I am still paying my student loans off, good grief that sucks. I am glad I have my education, but free would have been awesome from this boys pov.

Herbie is a good guy, wrong on this count, but still a good guy. Being a Tennessee fan for me started in the 70's. I loved my Vols then, really loved them when they beat Miami in the Sugar Bowl, loved them when they beat Holtz and his ND squad at South Bend, loved them in 98, and I loved them while OR was running circles around them. And all they years in between. It is indeed a southern thing. Southerners tend to rally around one another more quickly than other parts of the country, whether it be football, or a disaster, or just someone needing a helping hand.

UT would be undefeated had they played Arkansas schedule too. That is a killer opening three right there, please. OR would have beat Aubi, Arky and Kenny just as bad as they beat us. Good a thing to write about as anything else I guess.

OK, just came out of my whiskey induced coma that started at the end of the third quarter. Dang, what a butt whoopin. Dang, we need some receivers and a qb. Dang we need some depth and speed. And dang oregon has some fast people wearing those puke green britches!!
All that aside, I believe in Butch. I like what he said afterwards at the presser about it hurting. Those dipwads calling for a firing should have stayed in their whiskey coma for another day or so.

Oregon is a good team, but they put their britches on same as TN does. Yeah, yeah, they can run fast in those britches too. UT does good in the underdog role, and they are in that role this Saturday. No body, me included thinks they will win. Watch out and go Vols!
