Glad to see coaches get together for a great cause.

Beware. The OBC uses the foot wedge.

Are those all the coaches that play golf? I suppose the OBC could switch hit and represent USC and Florida.

Well, a little Johnson & Murphy english never hurt anybody. They better be glad Steve Sloan isn't in the field. His first year as a head coach at Vanderbilt he won the coaches tournament in Hot Springs, AK beating perennial champ Frank Broyles by about a dozen strokes. He didn't play in it again, as it produced ill feelings since Sloan was a scratch player. Shoulda taken up golf instead of football coaching as a profession.

And Sterling Sharpe DEFINITELY takes a bunch of "liberties" on the golf course. Seen it with my own eyes. He hits it a ton, though. Look for USC to win this thing.

Also, some of these guys might not appreciate Urbie's nose rubs. If he rubbed nosess with anyone besides Tebow he might get his nose knocked off his face.

Monte's Punk didn't even play golf. It's good to have a coach capable of playing a man's game during the offseason. It's also good for the Big Orange Tour, or whatever they call it.

I have nothing against UF but the desire for UT to beat them but you my friend certainly have a Big Orange obsession going on don't you?

He's a pitiful troll and a WD stalker...I really like the honest discussion of UT athletics on this site but there are several, and we all know who they are, idiots that seem to live on this site night and day and do nothing but post the most idiotic drivel over and over again trying to get a rise out of the normal people who'd like to be able to have an adult conversation here.

There are some seriously unbalanced people in the world and some of them seem to be obssessed with UT and a few of those have found this site where they are able to display their mental disorders anonymously from darkened rooms protected by their illusions of superiority and a keyboard.

It's kind of fun to laugh at their lunacy at first but after a while you realize that these people have some serious mental problems. Sad...sad.
