As the year ends, Tennessee’s streaks won’t. They still will be hanging over the program in 2014.

John, John, John. And you wonder why people want you to go back to LA. What a waste of space. And once again KNS makes a gallant effort to run of subscribers.

Waste. All the great goings on in the world of sports right now....and the only thing hambone can do is beat dat horse. Geeze, the season for Team #117 ended a month ago and it will be another month before NSD makes news.

Congratulations John, as much fun as you like to make of UT fans being obsessed with their team...you're twice as obsessed with poking the badger. But hey, it's easy and doesn't take any effort, kinda like getting paid by the column inch transcribing high school results 5 days late.

Correction, it's exactly like that.

Sorry orange kool-aid drinkers, but this is the time of year to reflect back in order to make plans for the future. Bash Adams all you want, but I liked looking back at all the streaks that our program must overcome. There is a lot of work to do. Our program is at a place that we have not been in a century. Not sure why you types just want water carriers in the media regarding the football program. It ain't Adams fault that we stink.

Agreed.

Considering the source, this column comes across as taunting (15 yards). There's nothing here we don't know by heart and - news flash - we aren't pleased with any of it.

It's Exhibit A for why many UT fans are hostile to Adams, which is something he also takes pleasure in. One can picture him settling in to read these comments with a dry smirk and a cigar.

June 5, 2007. KNS Plant.

Two consecutive events is not a streak. That would be streak in progress...or streaking...which is the equivalent of Adams running across Shield-Watkins field naked at halftime...also an insignificant event.
