LEXINGTON, Ky. — Maybe Tennessee’s bowl goal was a bad idea.

.........."The Vols aren’t going to a bowl. But they aren’t going into the history books, either.

With a loss, they would have become the first team in school history to lose eight games.

Once they took a 14-0 lead in the first quarter, they were never in danger of making history."

That just really chaps your backside hyde, don't it John. YCKMBOA

And Alabama helped Auburn defeat # 1, too. A & M helped Missouri win. Goodness; Michigan helped OSU stay undefeated. Adams could not write a straight-up sports story if the Pulitzer Prize awaited two reasonable paragraphs.

Poor John. Would it hurt to heap a little praise on the last game of the season? No we were not playing Florida State or Alabama but we made the most of the night.
I hate to tell you John but you kind of suck!!!

That a boy, John...you can pin a dark cloud into ANY silver lining for our VOLS. Just let's start with Croom. The ball did not bounce in his arms. He had the presence of mind to reach in and take away a ball that wasn't secured. Hey...a W is a W and we WON it....they didn't give it away! There is a difference between objectivity and negativity...learn it and take your bad writing elsewhere, we're all sick of it here.

However bad Ky is at football, JA is even worse at his profession; my condolences JA.
By the way, I hear there's an opening in Lincoln, NE and plenty of misery to go around!

When KNS started charging for these articles and the privilege to comment, I like a fool signed up. I stupidly thought that if they were charging then surely there would be some positive articles that us Vol fans would want to read. However, I was sadly mistaken. I have gone to the Web site to try and determine how to cancel my "PAY for Reading" and I cannot see where you can cancel. Does anyone know or do I just need to call them or what. I damn sure am not paying to read this negative chit!

What else can I say that the other guys above did not say? Little johnny adams is Mr Childish Negative as it regards the Vols. Same old phooey. Same old sarcasm. How deep does your hatred run johnny boy ? Is the New Sentinel that hard up for "journalists" ?

JA there's medication in the form of SSRIs for what ails you. They really can improve your mood and outlook. Who knows, you might even find yourself singing in the shower.

John, do the honorable thing and do what Ed Orgeron did, just resign and make 2013 a good year for most of us to remember.
