No its being supportive. A true fan who cares about their team would understand.

If not for his addiction to posting in our message boards, I bet gatorzz would be there to cheer us on as well. He reminds me of a friend of mine. The guy was in the closet for years and finally came out, thinking no one ever knew.

Imagine the sigh of relief we all felt once he was "outed".

Come on, zz, do us all a favor and wear the real orange. You know you want to.

Butch WTF? Settle down! This is the first chance we Vol fans have to see our new coach in action. If you don't want to go then it's simpy don't go and leave the 10,000 seats for those that truly bleed orange

Fear the Kiff but also Fear the Berry!

For years all practice has been closed to the fans. Imagine if we had, had access to last years practices what we would have seen.

Seriously, bro - you shouldn't quit the meds cold-turkey.

Well Butch, I guess I'm going to be a loser.
I WILL BE in Neyland Stadium watching this practice. Go Vols!!!

The same thing we saw on Saturdays in the fall. Phil wandering around lost while trying to figure out a way to stop the downward spiral of his career.

Insert swayback jokes here. Poor mule.

Not sure yet, I think it will be based on the progress they have made on the stadium. My uncle is working on the stadium and his best guess is that they will have around 2/3's of the stadium open for the O&W game

Dang Kappy. Y'all are quick on the removals today. I like it.

Would love to be one of the 10,000 "losers" but it's scheduled for the Vols first SEC tournament game. Wish they could move the date open to the public to antoher day. If they did I would be there and tailgate before hand. Guess that makes me an even bigger loser.

Amen to that. Heck....I might even drive down and take my kids and grandkids to watch it. The way I see it....It's never to early to get their devotion and support started.

Not in most folks' books. That makes you a fan.

Okay, do we have to go there, seriously? Still insulting ole Phil? Do we have to compare our head coaches of the last 16 years? Yeah, Fulmer is a fatty mcbutterpants, but how about these guys: DuBose, Shula, Price, Franchionne (or however you spell his name), and any other dumbazz who contributed to UA's stellar credentials in that time span. And don't even try and use Saban as a comparison. You set the precedent by naming our FORMER HC, not current. Remember rammerjammerupyourcanner, silence is golden, duct tape is silver.

Nice broadside, ctowm.

Wow, haven't seen that many deleted comments in a while. Must have been pretty bad for KNS to jump on it, considering the stuff they usually let go.

Have fun at the practice. Too far for me, but will be there for O&W with son. His first time to the stadium.

volnbig11land writes:

wow, I stepped away from the computer for a few minutes and see that butchy caused a rucus (but I didn't see the post before it was removed).

I've seen a lot of her posts and they are all negative. Really makes you wonder what kind of life she has.

I bet she wouldn't be so brave if this was in a face to face setting versus her computer in her Mom's basement...

I seriously doubt it, but it would be nice.

You liked that one, huh?

Volchaz writes:

Only 10k admitted? puhlease...
Interesting insults aimed at Fulmer from the bammer fans, since he could call SCOREBOARD all day with his record against the tide.

Hmm........practice or 7:30 tip-off.

Decisions, decisions.......

Dude, seriously get a life. I would guess that an absolute redneck would post three of four things on here that KNS would have to delete (and since I imagine that you're a little slow, I am talking about you). Some of us prefer football to basketball.

I'll tell you guys one thing for sure. You think the interlopers are a problem? Not even close. The problem here in Nashville is AM 560, more specifically, Bill King and the Tennesse football hater of all time, Joe Biddle. These guys HATE Tennessee football with a voracious appetite. Biddle has never liked UT and we all know that. King, on the other hand, used to be a VOL, especially when he worked with Bob Bell. Whatever turned him against UT is anybody's guess. Even today they couldn't wait to trash Kiffin on the radio. They look for any opportunity to discredit Lane Kiffin and company. I really wish Bob Bell would come back on the radio. If you ever listen to the show, you will see what I'm talking about. Boycott Bill King's show.

So what does that say about you sitting in the hairdresser's chair having your pompadour oiled while both are going on?
