I just can't believe that a head coach or anyone in James Franklin's position would think it would be a good idea to contact the victim of a crime, when that said person has so many direct ties to the accused assailants. Not to mention that the possible outcome of any investigation would have such a direct impact on that said person. The fact the prosecutor was okay with it is quite absurd! J Franklin's actions are questionable at the least. And the prosecutor has been questionable through the entire process!

Hold your fire JP, Lunardi has both the Vols and Missouri in as of Monday morning. Both teams stunk it up this weekend but still a 50/50 chance both teams make it as a first round "play in" game! Soft bubble this year and UT desperately needs to win out and get a favorable draw in the SEC tourney. I think more than likely Tenn. gets in (because of SOS) if they beat Mizz.

Hell, Donavan is only at 65%, C Martin is not that far behind in league play! And I hate coach cal and his semi-pro team anyway!

John, You missed that Cuonzo Martin hasn't had three full years in the SEC either! At the end of this year Martin should be at around 61.5% providing the Vols go 4-1 the rest of the way! That being said, still not good enough!
Vandy is in the cellar because they are the biggest disappointment in the league this year. UT will be favored when they play Vandy. If UT keeps it close with Auburn then they should move up a spot. They are the only lower level team in the conference to beat a top ten team this year and thusly will get the benefit of the doubt when paired against Vandy and KY.

Look out for JDobbs tonight. Mizzou's defense has no way to prepare for him unless they watch some high school tape. He looked good against bama and Mo. is no bama! Look for the Vols to keep it close and look for a whole lot of running for both teams. I believe JDobbs will prove to be a better passer than MMk.

40-0 are you kidding? They didn't even make the tourney last year. Come on, give me a break!

I am going on a hunger strike until I see the ex-rays of Clowney's ribs! I deserve to know whether he was faking it or not and I won't sleep or eat until I know!

They strongly condemn the behavior. That is tough talk? Maybe they could put them in "timeout." Perhaps have them stand in the corner or write on the chalkboard.

At this point I would exchange Missouri for Tennessee. Although the mizzou are 4-0 they are likely to only beat KY. Tennessee and Vandy will be toss ups. Tennessee only has to win two games facing Auburn, Vandy, and Missouri. I will go out on a limb and say Ky will be winless in the SEC. UT has Vandy and Auburn in Knoxville. In my opinion UT's win over WKU is better than any of Missouri's wins. And that's not saying much. Either way UT and Missouri will be very close and neither fanbase has much to look forward to except next year or roundball season.

Not kudos to LSU. 189 snaps divided by 3 takeaways is one takeaway for every 63 snaps. I think your stat for LSU is wrong. UT with 3 takeaways through 204 snaps is better. Check the math! Love this site and never miss your show on Sunday. I went to school with you in Middlesboro, KY. Keep up the good work!

John Adams is half right. Which is an all time high for him! If only he would retire. UT could only wish, dream, and hope for a coach as successful as Phil Fulmer. Love him or hate him, blame him or not, he's the best we ever had! To blame him for Kiffin who was an a-hole and Dooley who was a buffoon is RIDICULOUS! Let's hope BJ gets us going right again.

B. Jones has hit the ground running. I think he has awoke a sleeping giant. Look for the Vols to be a lot more competitive in 2013. Butch's attitude and desire to win are infectious! Go Big Orange!

There will be NO undefeated season for the kittens! It sounds like Cal has been spending too much time with 18 year old boys because he's starting to talk like them. The gun to my head thing is ridiculous and stupid! They didn't even make the ncaa tourney last year and now were supposed to believe they can go undefeated! Come on!

Are Vol fans and boosters really desperate enough to consider Petrino. This is rediculous! It screams desperation. Hiring Petrino says UT has no sense of decency and that we are willing to go gutter shopping, if we could just find someone who might get a win. Nevermind the reputation! We are considering a guy who hired his mistress. Having a mistress is one thing, but being so consumed that he would get her a job-how did Petrino think that was going to play out?

Georgia should worry about playing defense, as shown in the UT game, their defense is suspect at best! Expect to see lots of rushes from both teams, that's not news. But look for Richt to pull all the punches! That's what it will take, in my opinion. Half back passes, reverses,flea flickers, fake punts, on side kick to start the game-Richt needs to bring a full bag of tricks, a la-Les Miles, if he wants to win this game. They will not be able to line up and rush it down Fla.'s throat.

My problem with the hit is that it came so late! That is the kind of play that deserves a suspension. Bang-bang plays are different. If he doesn't get a suspension; who should?
