Coach Dooley has tried to manage expectations during his first thre years at TN by downplaying the team and the season based on numerous reasons.  I find statements like "you are not going to have TN to kick around anymore" and  TN can "toe to toe with everybody on the scheule" interesting.  This could all very well be coach speak but it is nice to hear some confidence in the team coming from the head coach and is getting me more excited to find out what kind of team TN is going to be this year.

 @dee6634 First we had two revenue generating sports teams in post season play.  Both the men and women's teams made post seson play.  And before you make an NIT commit.  I will count an NIT birth as post season as long as Vandy continues to count minor bowl apperances outside BCS bowls which until recently has been once a decade.

 

As a TN fan, I would agree with you about the moronic behavior of some when "he who shall never be named" and his cronies left town.  And I would agree that Brey and Rogers have a lot to prove to me and many other TN fans after they quit in the KY game.  

 

I find it entertaining that when Vandy fans get needled just a little they pull out the GPA and APR card.  Great, we all know that Vandy is the the toughest school academically in the SEC.  However, the last time I checked this was a website dedicated to sports not who has the better chemistry, math or lit departments.  So the whole "we are smarter than you" argument resounds of typical Vandy elitism and desperation.

 

Finally, I will say that the gap between the two school has never been smaller and Vandy probably had their best chance to beat UT in many years last season and blew it.  In the sport that matters most to SEC schools, Vandy still plays second fiddle to UT.  For all the talk about a change in culture, it needs to translate to results on the field and until Vandy can beat TN more than once a decade I will stand by that statement that Vandy is still Vandy no matter what they are wearing.  Oh and the day Vandy does put string together two wins straight wins in football over TN I will eat the orange hat  I am wearing with a side of caviar.

You can put a fresh coat of paint on a lemon and it is still a lemon.  The same is true for Vandy.  New uniforms same old Vandy.

Take on Big Ten and one ACC link bowl and make them Pac 12 linked bowls this would give the SEC 2 bowls verses the Big Ten, ACC, Pac 12 and Big 12 plus a C-USA foe.  This would make for a well rounded and fresh slate of SEC match-ups

How do you spell coward- unwilling to play top opponents at their home court because he is afraid that his teams of one and dones will not be able to handle the preasure.  KY's motto is no longer anybody, anytime, anywhere, it is anybody, anytime but not your home court.
