Not by true Vol fans with self-respect, a conscience, and moral decency, I believe. When greed entices anyone to bet on the opposition, we lose all credibility and to some extent are guilty of modern day treason.

This game will probably be pretty tough. I have slightly higher hopes for an upset against SCar, especially if Connor Shaw is still hurt.

Vols will shock the world and win out this year. This team is killer and no one can stop them .

Well maybe the teams on the rest of the schedule can but no one else can.

Vols 4-8 and home for the holidays again.

Six wins are going to be tough but we knew that going in. If we can't support them and CBJ we should keep our mouths shut. CBJ is doing a remarkable job of recruiting and has instilled enthusiasm and confidence in the team. He is doing the job he was signed to do. The team and possible future recruits need to see everyday that the Vols have great fans and fans that stand behind them in fair weather or bad. If you truly want this team to succed now and in the future as a UT fan there will be no deterring you in your faith and resolve to help them in the stands and on these boards.

Dear KNS,
I don't pay to read junk like this. Discussion is OK, but this type post is not really accomplishing but self gratification for some punk troll. Please clean this mess up. ALL VOL ... ALL THE TIME

Just checked the enrollment date for this user. It won't work anymore.

This is no time for summer soldiers, sunshine patriots, elbow-joggers, and self-righteous naysayers. Who is surprised at the record to this point? The Vols came almost as close to beating Florida in G'ville as they did to losing to USA in Neyland. Combine the best from those efforts while eliminating the worst, and the Vols will have a decent chance Saturday and maybe against USCe later. As for Bama, the best they can probably hope for is that nobody gets seriously hurt, physically or mentally. Even if they lose all of the next three, there is still a good shot at making a bowl, which would surely represent progress over the last few years. Stay strong, Vols, and fans, too!
