Tough sledding. Team #117 would have a tough time with the University of Virginia. I hate to see what Vandy does to them again this year. Any coach can make it at UT, but their undoing will be when they start dropping games to Kentucky or Vanderbilt. I said this early on in Dooley's tenure. Now the sentiment is shifting on Jones. Drop a game to the Commodores or the Cats and it does not matter what stage of rebuilding you are in, it is hot seat time.

You are an idiot. Continued negativity is an illness. When is the last time you coached, played or even attended a game?

I am not being negative just telling it like it is. Why not bash everyone on here who predicted 8,9, and 10 win seasons? Well, it is impossible because they all left, because they have been so wrong about Dooley, Martin, and their predictions in general. Unfortunately the reality and aura of this program has been negative, when it turns around I will be the first to let you know.

Only a basher, nothing is ever positive or good. I'd bet when it turns around, you'll be the first to go.

The recruiting class is good, and the South Carolina game was positive.

Let's see, positives: leadership, accountability, energy, recruiting, experienced youth as cornerstone of foundation (had to) . We beat Georgia, just didn't get the "W", etc, etc... A Damn good Kicker

Negatives: Florida coaching adjustments,Speed, quarterback Consistency, o-line consistency,

This staff has a "Get busy living" mentality that's infectious. Give the Man some time and be a Vol Fan!!! Unless you aren't-still o.k.

Oh yeah, Caveman say BIG FIRE building on The Hill; Butch is clearing wood and sending a Signal to the Nation. UT RISING....

We did not beat Georgia. It was a loss and always will be.
