@TheN8tureBoy @sojourner i suppose you also have a commission authorizing you to declare who is and who is not a fan.
@TheN8tureBoy @sojourner yeah, maybe not, but i assume that you own a t-shirt which makes you one.
@sec_fan disagree. institutions and traditions are bigger than the individuals who pass through. that's why they are institutions and traditions. can you imagine what the marine corps reaction would be if one of its members tried to get them to ditch their dress blues for a star trek outfit?
this is one Tennessee grad who, for the first time, will not be pulling for a win. i'm sorry, but i'm a little too old and set in my ways to appreciate this emmett kelly/boise state sacrilege of a fine old tradition.
dooley had been a perennial loser since he took up the whistle and clipboard. he kept it up in knoxville until the fans had enough. courtesy of the most incompetent a.d. in the history of college athletics, he left with a five million dollar reward for not breaking the mold. now, he's with the big boys in dallas. somehow, i get the idea he's gonna fit right in. hell, i wouldn't be surprised if j.j. doesn't make him the next head coach. they love losing there.

what jones is dealing with is the incompetence of mike hamilton, the former a.d. what kind of moron would hire a head coach with zero qualifications other than his last name? the icing on the cake was the five million dollar golden parachute should dooley live down to his resume (he did, in spades). this blithering idiot had the option to get out of one of two daunting out of conference games, oregon and north carolina. guess which one hamilton chose. hamilton had the ability to screw up anything he touched. it is a lingering gift.

as a vol grad, i don't blame dooley. he is what he is. unfortunately, that didn't include packing the gear to be a head coach in the sec. if history is any guide, he was lacking in the wac as well. other than his last name, he had zero credentials for the tennessee spot. if finebaum wonders why kiffen qualified for the usc job, what must he wonder about dooley? the answer is that both dooley and kiffen owed their hires at tennessee to an athletic director with even less qualification for his job. however long tennessee athletics exist, i hope to god that it never experiences that level of incompetence again.

I agree, but in fairness, Tennessee hasn't been Tennessee since phil decided he'd paid his dues and was entitled to coast.

i remember that back in the mid-70s when steve sloan was coaching at vandy, he engineered an arrangement by which full time students at george peabody (across the street) could play for vandy. peabody was a school of education (including phys. ed) and the theory was that it would open a whole new pool of talent for the 'dores. that never happened. perhaps franklin has re-visited that arrangement. btw, peabody was later merged into vandy proper.
disclosure: sloan was a high school classmate, my wife holds a graduate degree from peabody.

don't get me wrong. this is one vol grad who's happy with weasel boy being three time zones away from volville, but in all honesty, i'd take him back in a new york minute over the guy in orange pants with a famous last name who followed him. as for the so-called a.d. who hired both (and worse), I wouldn't wish him on bama or florida (well, maybe florida). what kind of fool hires a coach with a career losing record, then gives him a five million dollar golden parachute when he lives down to his resume?

vandy should probably approach football the same way duke does, as an afterthought. two years from now, franklin will be history and the dores settled into their usual spot in the sec hierarchy.

an athletic director's main duty is the hiring and firing of coaches. kiffen, dooley, and todd raleigh (the baseball coach--a real piece of work). that says it all about hammy.
3 months, 3 weeks ago on Knoxville Columnist Blasts Ex-Tennessee Coach Fulmer
fulmer may have earned his firing, but that in no way validates the competence of the man who fired him. say what you will about phil fulmer--his record will suffice to prove that, before he became satisfied and convinced he was bulletproof, he was one of the best coaches in college football. no such validation is remotely possible for mike hamilton. he had the george w. bush touch; everything he touched turned to sh*t.
@5LittlePiggies vol grad stranded in piggyville since 75. back in the day, when broyles, holtz, and hatfield were strolling the sidelines, playing in little rock, in a stadium that would embarrass a good high school program wasn't that big a problem. come the 90s and the move to the sec, it made absolutely no sense at all. it was tantamount to piling up a mound of cash in war memorial and setting it afire, not to mention how it looks to recruits. the only remaining excuse is that it satisfies the overweening ego of a certain little rock based fat cat.

Hamilton and Dooley. Amazing what rank incompetence can do to a once proud program.
