Congrats CPF! Did Courtney play sports at UT as well? Maybe we have us a potential Vol star being born. If this were KY, they'd go ahead and offer.

Congratulations, Coach. I didnt realize Courtney had married a former Vol FB player, but I recognize his name! His other grandfather was coach at La. Tech. or another of the La. schools if I remember correctly....Should be a good player!!! :)

Pretty cool.

Hotlanta-Imagine Peace asking Coach permission for that. That had to take nards.

Congratulations go out to the Peace and Fulmer Families. Someone ask if Courtney played sports at UT, I found no record for her. Brittany and Allison, Coach Fulmer's other daughters, are members of the swimming and softball teams, respectively. Did someone offer Joseph a UT scholarship yet?

Hey, congrats! Now, stay in Texas for an extended stay. I'd say arriving back AFTER football season would be perfect.

Hope you aren't a vol fan and if you are, don't be. Bashing UT players and coaches...unbelievable. Glass is half empty huh mr. optomistic?!

VOLS85 writes:

If you make it such a high priority to hate on our team and coaches, then don't be a fan of UT...go somewhere else, because we have no interest in listening to you as you add nothing to the conversation

Bet he has a scholarship already locked away for him as well as for Wittens boy. Congrats!

Thank God CPF didn't have to have a 12 gauge in his hands to carry out this wedding. I can't imagine what it would be like for my daughter to grow up around all that testosterone. Good luck kids!

Couldn't resist LOL... congrats to the Fulmer and Peace families! Maybe a future coach in the making who'll break the all time winningest UT coaching record that'll be broke by his grandpa.

Now if Brittany should marry a guy named William War, that would make for an interesting group of grandkids.

No worries dear General. Take a glimpse into the future of this lad. Good gene structure is important and combined with a solid strength and conditioning program we have a bright future.
