I'll take Dave Hart being fired or having his pay suspended for the cost of the Sunseri debacle.

Any AD dumb enough to extend that kind of contract to an unproven coach at a time when the head coach was on the hotseat, doesn't deserve to be in such a position. NO QUESTIONS ASKED!!

I'll take competitive athletics with the desire for Championships down the road. I'm thankful CBJ has opened the door to the Lettermen that CDD slammed in the face of those that played Atop Rocky. Lettermen are vital to our tomorrows and CBJ has welcomed them back. Thx, CBJ...Merry Christmas

A winning season would be great it's been hard the past few years with the way things have gone but there is hope with a new coach and a new attitude on the hill.

Remember all programs go thru hard times.

Below is a bit of info that will make all the bama haters (me included)feel better and also hopeful that we're on the way back too!

Between Alabama's 1992 national title under Gene Stallings and its 2009 BCS crown under Nick Saban, the Crimson Tide were more recognized for coaching changes and NCAA sanctions than gridiron success.

Alabama won one SEC title in those 16 seasons, and it suffered losing records in 1997, 2000, '03 and '06.

Tennessee defeated Alabama seven consecutive times from 1995 to 2001, and Auburn won six straight Iron Bowls from 2002 to '07.

Now don't you feel better? I do!!!

Merry Christmas everyone.

Always comparing to Alabama. Before the streak you reference and after it Alabama was on long streaks. Working on seven now.

A top 15 recruiting class. I didnt see that option. Lady Vols will make atleast the Elite 8 anyway and I want Maymon to redshirt.

Tennessee isn't even close to being in the same class as Alabama. Notre Dame, Michigan, Ohio State and Texas can compare their program to Alabama but you are in a dream world putting Tennessee in that company. Just forget about it and be satisfied with being a solid SEC middle of the pack program.

Just Saying

Uh, Notre Dame and Michigan in the past 10 years haven't been stellar. And Texas mostly fails to live up to expectation, wouldn't you think?

The football program to return to the heights it had attained during the Fulmer years. While I am asking for miracles, I would also like my wife to have the same vim, vigor, etc. that she had when we first met (because if she had that, it would go far to returning me to the status that I had at the time).

Much like yourself KY can be satisfied with being an SEC bottom feeder
