Golliee Adams, a decent story not denigrating the Vols. What's up???

I think JA is generally fair. Not a popular opinion. He's a reporter-writer not a fan. When things are bad, he probably amplifies and is too sarcastic, but it is a business. He calls 'em like he sees 'em.

Well the Auburn and Mizzou teams look tuffer than earlier, but we are too. Aubie defense stinks. We have an improving team. We will get one of these 2, lose to AL, and blow out whoever is left, including the running on fumes commode doors.

I think this was Adams regurgitating the crow he ate earlier today.

You're probably right, I'm sure he'll get over it quickly enough and tell us how bad Alabama is going to beat us and that we shouldn't be on the same field with them. I can't be happier that he and his buddy Spurrier (the Lip) both took it on the chin today!

If you don't like his articles, why read them? Simple.

Regarding Coach Jones, I thought it might have been a coaching mistake to play Peterman before he was ready against FL. With as many bad things that happened to FL that day coupled with the low mistake ratio that Worley seems to turn in, we would have a chance that day. But UT beating USC today with the youthful Worley/North/Howard, versus last year losing to them with Bray/Patterson/Hunter is truly a piece of coaching impressiveness, imho. Marquee (Maequez)win today...a good day in Knoxville!

No question those two are a lot better than I have been giving them credit for. However, I wouldn't judge Auburn's defense on their performance against A&M; the Aggies pile up big numbers against everybody. Also, while beating UGA may not look like as big of an accomplishment as it might have a few weeks ago, Vandy got over a hump about as big as the one the Vols surmounted Saturday in terms of beating a ranked team. So it is quite possible we Vol fans will have to swallow another bitter pill or two before this season is over. But it sure feels great right now!
