Written on Vols new alternative football uniform adds a 'smokey' shade of gray:

in response to mikethehistorystudent:

What do you enjoy about being a troll and seeking negative reactions to your posts? The alternate uniforms obviously look good and this new coach has (so far) blow all expectations out of the water.

He enjoys people responding just like you just did.
It always amazes me people reply to these idiots but just like a moth to flame it always happens

As for the uniforms I'm definitely old school
but------ things change the players like it and if they do go for it.

HE IS A LONELY UNHAPPY MISERABLE LOSER THAT HAS NO LIFE AND TROLLS THIS SITE 24/7

IT WAS JOY TO WATCH HIS CHEAP SHOT THUGS GET SPANKED WHILE MUS CHUMP SPEWED

FLORIDA PUT ON A PRIMADONNA CHEAP SHOW THAT THOSE OLD MIAMI TEAMS WOULD HAVE BEEN PROUD OF.

"the term "prima donna" has come into common usage in any field denoting someone who behaves in a demanding, often temperamental fashion, revealing an inflated view of themselves, their talent, and their importance

Pretty much sums up Florida's defense!

Written on Butch Jones' new Tennessee staff to make a combined $3 million, handsome raises over 2012 salaries :

in response to volthrunthru#658770:

For those who have a problem with people point out some flaws in this coaching staff:

a. Anybody who sees a manure sandwich on which somebody has placed a new lettuce leaf, served on an orange plate, is supposed to holler as if Doug Dickey, Johnny Majors and Phillip Fulmer were all assistants to The General for 2013---and yell, "GO VOLS!!!" and eat lunch from the orange plate. To avoid doing so, you apparently believe, is disloyalty.

b. Otherwise, anybody who has the audacity to suggest that a lot of emperors in Knoxville are in the nude, is supposed to be throttled.

c. And your implicit point is, apparently, that stupid comments from very ignorant people, who do not know good football from a mountain oyster, are supposed to be respected.

d. Finally, you apparently expect people who DO know some things about athletics, administration, football at the level of big-time collegiate competition, to shut up and let dumb comments be treated as truth.

Horse manure.

UT Football is in as bad trouble as it has ever been. Those in charge are so desperate they hire mediocre coaches, give them healthy raises, and a second-tier head coach woefully paid beyond his expertise, experience or track record.

The coaching search that resulted in his hire was an absolute shame, casting UT in the kind of light it has been since Mike Hamilton first began his incompetent tenure---except momentum of stupidity by Hart has more national journalists looking.

One of those Journalists, Tim from Louisiana, wants UT to do well; he said good things. He knows Jones and staff are far, far below the level UT would command if it had not become a destination to be avoided by better coaches.

That’s due to bad fans, the Fulmer debacle (Hall of Fame Coach, widely respected by HC's around the nation, etc, etc; yet publicly humiliated by Hamilton and the BOT and top two admins at UT;)
lack of recruiting base in Tennessee---yet these coaches come from some bush league school and tell ignorant Tennesseans what locals want to hear---Tennessee recruits from Tennessee can win the SEC---and they get three years to deliver garbage wrapped in excuses.

Jones et al are a small cut above Dooley as coaches. Disciplinarians they may be; but they have nowhere near the background to win in the SEC. They do not know how to recruit 5-stars---barely recruiting 4-stars---real ones, not 4-stars they have convinced rating services to rank upwards, to make them look good.

Notice they raped Cincinnati to come here, taking recruits from that school. THAT is classless---for a 3-star player, on top of it all. But they have no other options, because they are not getting into the big time players.

UT is in for a long ride---and it will not end well with this bunch.

Men's Basketball, as well as baseball, as well as the shameful Pat Summitt handling is just par for the course at UT, nowadays.

So you were the guy Theodore Roosevelt was talking about.

"It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood, who strives valiantly; who errs and comes short again and again; because there is not effort without error and shortcomings; but who does actually strive to do the deed; who knows the great enthusiasm, the great devotion, who spends himself in a worthy cause, who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement and who at the worst, if he fails, at least he fails while daring greatly. So that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who know neither victory nor defeat."

Theodore Roosevelt

I believe that last sentence describes you and many of the whinners on this board cold and timid souls.

OFFENSIVE LINE

We certainly have problem's but a deep SEC experienced offense line can make up for a lot of them.

Looking for positives for 2013 OL is where you start.

Well He certainly talks a lot. Now all he has to do is put his coaching ability where his mouth is.
A top 20 recruiting class would be almost a miricle and winning seven games would be another.

Hey Einstein you do realize he was being asked questions and interviewed by a reporter.

You may also note 90% of the article is the reporter making observations about the staff and quoting other staff members.

Written on John Adams: Avoiding Oregon would be worse than losing to it:

The number one thing for vol fams to hang their hat on for 2013

WE WILL HAVE ONE OF THE BEST OFFENSIVE LINES IN THE COUNTRY WITH DEPTH.

not flashy like quarterbacks, running backs or wide receivers but most coaches will tell you this is where games are won or lost.

With improvement in defense ( and my god we couldn't be worse) there is hope for a decent year.

If we could add a qb who could or would run on 3rd and 4 every now and then instead of throw it in the stands we might even be good not great but good enough to compete and win.

Written on Butch Jones says Cordarrelle Patterson 'definitely going to the NFL' :

in response to Ironcity:

I get a kick from you guys that don't think we will miss these guys. We saw what a lack of speed did to the defense. Our offense could look just as painful if we don't find someone to stretch the field. As far as I can tell we have some quick guys but no burners at WR.

Lack of speed on defense?

funny how folks forget that exact same group of defenders the year before were 26th in the country in total defense and no one ever mentioned they were slow.

It's hard to be fast when you and in most cases the coach don't know where you are going and who to cover.

Although I will agree we will miss the 3 players mentioned and speed is important.

Written on UT offers no-donation football season tickets:

in response to yea_right:

gave up 4 season tickets last year after 38 yrs,best move of 2011 !!! Tn is suppose to be a state school but its not its owned by a local family and they will decide what product is put on the field and sidelines.I would feel like i was insulting your intelligence if i had to mention the family by name.

You already insulted our intelligence by your ridiculous post.

The family you fail to mention have given more money to the university and numerous charitable causes and foundations than you could imagine.

Your an idiot if you think they influence the competitiveness of the football team.

The Vols are in a bad spell that most if not all teams go through and when it ends and it will end it will be nice to know you won't be there.

By the way the folks you fail to mention were around giving money for many of the years you had you tickets including the year the Vols won the National Championship.

Funny how you forget those years

Jealous I do believe.

Written on New UT coach Butch Jones in Knoxville:

Absolutely stunned by the negativity on this site.

Gruden- NEVER COMING
Gundy - NEVER LEAVING
STRONG - OFFERED 4 MILLION

Don't see much Hart could to do about how those turned out.

I have been at peace with this process from the start because once you have had Derek Dooley as your head coach it can only get better.

As a matter of fact here are some other Jone's that would be a better head coach than Derek Dooley.

George Jones
Star Jones
Davy Jones (if he were still living)
Grace Jones
Jesus Jones
Quincy Jones
Ricky Lee Jones
David Jones (also known as David Bowie bet you didn't know that)
Casey Jones
Deacon Jones (is he still alive?)

My point----- Dooley is gone 2012 is over
Its a new day and nobody knows how this will turn out support the the coach support the Vols stop the sky is falling nonsense.

At least Jones looks like a football coach and best of all

in response to collegegrovebilly:

(This comment was removed by the site staff.)

Take off your tin foil hat for a minute and get out of the trailer for some fresh air because your comment is ridiculous and sounds like something an---------------------Alabama fan would say.

quote from Dave Hart when this process started:

When Tennessee athletics director Dave Hart announced the firing of Derek Dooley on Nov. 18, he offered two tips for fans eager to follow the Vols’ search for a new football coach:

"There’s no need to panic and don’t believe everything you hear."

I would say that is excellent advice.

Written on As Jon Gruden drama ends, focus shifts to other Tennessee candidates :

in response to snafu14u#241639:

I am speechless. I knew Gruden was not coming, but this has turned into a circus I couldn't have even imagined. Fueled by the media (both local and not), and a rabid and unrealistic fan base and a athletic department w/o a clue. And Gruden and or his agent are to blame as well. As a pure public relations move it was fine up to a certain point. Now its back-fired. Now that some cold water has been poured on the collective faces of the previously mentioned we can move on as rational thinking adults. Hopefully. And that remains to be seen. Bonzaivol

Why is this a circus?

I think it is just the opposite. Dave Hart is quietly going about the very serious business of hiring the next UT coach.

Hart has said from the start he will not make any statements until he announces his hire.

Hart's refusal to comment on rumors or speculation now make him look more focused and serious on this hire.

The media has no info or real sources since all the powers(the Haslam's) publicly have stated they have no part in this process.Only Dave Hart knows who and whats going on and he isn't saying.

I actually have a new respect for Mr Hart and his refusal to be badgered by the media.

The good news folks is no matter who it is we will have a better coach than the one that just left!

Be patient and--------------- whoever he hires get on board support the vols.

Written on John Adams: Derek Dooley's firing should be announced right away :

in response to UT2006:

i just cannot see a scenario where you keep dooley and the fans... great guy, probably just got the job a couple years too early

One more thing all the talk of Dooley being a "good guy not a good coach" is nonsense he is despised by nearly every player on the team.

You will never see one player go near him or speak to him during the game.I believe once he's gone you will hear a lot of players speak out about his arrogance and incompetence.

Does anybody know if Dooley is still watering the bamboo?

Written on Struggling Vols' noteworthy streak in Music City to be tested by Vanderbilt :

Despite all the dooley firing and who the new coach will be (which I agree) and the disaster of a season and past 3 yrs I am pumped about this game!

I live in Nashville and if the players on UT could here what the sweater tied around their neck weejun wearing grey poupon eating beemer driving soft handed mommas boys talking smack about The University of Tennessee they would take the field today with a huge chip on their shoulders.

I hope they show up today motivated and play lose and fast.They are now the underdog and can ruin Candys little party they already assume they have won.

I hope Patterson and Hunter light it up and Bray is on fire.

Vandy may have a better team and does have a better coach but 2 things.

1. Vandy does not match up to our receivers well and they know it.

2.Tennesse always beats vandy

Written on Missouri QB James Franklin trying to rejuvenate season vs. struggling Tennessee :

Just saw the you tube video of the 9 yr old girl Sam Gordon you should watch it she is amazing.

My first thought was how many yards she would put against UT's defense she averages over 200 yards per game and has 35 td's

Then I realized she was a girl and only 9 yrs old so we could probably hold her under 100
unless her coach let's her run the qb draw or catch passes then it would be a toss up.

As Chis Rock said "WHAT DO YOU WANT A COOKIE"

It is your defense -- you own it!

I'm still glad Dooley was able to skip practices in the early fall and come back to Knoxville early because the team looked so good.

Probably could have used those to work on defense don't ya think!

Written on Final: Alabama 44, Tennessee 13 :

Am I really seeing post suggesting rehiring the man that started this downfall Phil Fulmer?

So lets get this straight some want to rehire a coach that not one other program over the past 4 years has even given a thought to hiring for their open coaching position.

This really is getting bad.

If we have to hire a new coach every 3 years until we get the right one so be it!

Lets get started!!

But for Gods sake not Fulmer

Written on Derek Dooley: 'We got whipped by a great football team' :

Vandy right now is a much better team than Tennessee in every aspect and you can book it they will beat Tennessee and should be a 7 point favorite at home.

After the loss next week at SC you will see this team fold like they did last year against kentucky the players on this team do not like dooley and he has lost this team just like last year.

Written on Derek Dooley: 'We got whipped by a great football team' :

I said this on an earlier post but I think it shows a lot about dooley.

Anyone remember fall camp moving to a school without a football field to practice?

Remember rain and having to waste a practice to get to a school that had a real football field?

Remember Dooley leaving camp a day early and missing 2 practices because the team looked so good?

This is the kind of nonsense and poor preparation that leads to what you see on the field now.

Do you think Nick Saban with the number one team in the country would say his team looked so good he skipped practices while dragging the team all over the place.

Written on John Adams: Next up is biggest game of season :

in response to volaholic45:

I'm just glad for the off-week. Being a Vols fan is exhausting, except for those self-proclaimed "true fans" whose indefatigable devotion takes the form of moral preening. OK, OK, we get it. You're better than the rest of us.

But here on earth is there a football program that has asked for more money and energy from its fans and delivered more chronic failure and dramatic disappointments than the Hamilton/Kiffin/Dooley Vols? C'mon, think about it. Kiffin debacle a week before signing day. Losing two games after they were over. Dooley losing control of the team to prima donnas who could not be bothered to extend a quarter-century streak and go to a bowl game. Can't kick an extra point - think about that - can't kick an extra point. Is there another team above the HS level that has missed extra points in 80% of its games?

I'm glad for the week off from huge dropped passes, missed FGs, CBs lining up 10 yards off a receiver and backpedaling on the snap, being teased for a half or three quarters, and QBs saying to h3ll with it and throwing sidearm off their back foot.

AMEN!

I have been a fan over 50 years and these last 6 or so years have been unbearable.

Remember the "CLAWFENCE" when we had games we could not complete a pass and sometimes it would be 3rd qtr before we crossed mid field or got a 1st down!

Here how I see it going.
6-6 liberty bowl team that loses to the C USA champion and Dooley stays.

wins NC STATE-AKRON-TROY-GA STATE-VANDY-KY

Great times huh when you have to beat Vandy to get to that sewer of a bowl the Liberty Bowl.

The great news is we don't play West Virginia they would put up 80 on our
fundamentally unsound undisciplined defense.

Sorry to be so negative but it is what it is and it's very frustrating.

Best case- fire Doooley and pay the big bucks for a new hc if and that is a huge IF he is the right guy we may return to success by 2015.

I know I will be called a troll and go route for another team but I don;t care

Sorry, but pretending to be someone I'm not is just not my thing.

That is my point exactly, I did this as a joke to be a pretend fan for some team that was in the title hunt. It sort of grew and heck I had a great time with it.My wife would crack up when I would have a long conversation with strangers about "our" tigers My only rule was no matter who is in the top five I could never pick BAMA.

Will always be a VFL but whats wrong with having fun with a sort of fake team heck millions do it every day playing fantasy football.

By the way thank you for your service.

You can still cheer for the vols in the liberty bowl and pull for your new boys to win a NC!

Written on Reality Chomps: Florida runs over Tennessee in second half :

Something you may try to get through these hard times.

Last yr even though I have followed UT for 50 plus years and will be a fan for the rest of my life football season had once again lost its luster and had become boring.

I made a fateful decision I decide I would pick me a top 5 team and follow them they would sort of become my boys so to speak.
Well I picked LSU quite honestly this started as joke sort of like picking a fantasy team.

Then a miracle happened that same week LSU goes int Bama and beats BAMA! All the sudden people started talking to me because of my LSU hat BAMA fans just looked pissed and I actually got a discount from a manager at the local restaraunt!Before you know it what started as joke turned into something fun I started keeping up with LSU (still pulled for my vols in their games)learned their roster and had a blast all they way till the NC game when WE (sarcasm) lost.

I have decided once again this year to do the same (especially after last nights performance)

For 2012 my new "boys" will be ----- OREGON
shoot why not they are fun as hll to watch and they play USC later in 2012.

Gone to get my hat today

Many may say I am deserting the vols this is not true just going sort of bobby petrino on them :)

May not be for everyone but I would urge you give it a try.

Written on Reality Chomps: Florida runs over Tennessee in second half :

Anyone remember the ridiculous moved to Milligan college a school so small it did not have a football filed.The field it did have
could not be used if it got wet!

Remember Dooley saying the team was banged up a little and gave them the afternoon off to pack and cancelled the next days practice?

That was probably the day Florida put in and practiced that wild cat play they scored on that we didn't have a clue how to stop.

That was also a missed day every other SEC team got better.

Anybody and I mean anybody that really thinks
Derek Dooley is a division one HC is foolish.

There is good news

1.There will be plenty of tickets for the Akron game.

2. We don't play University of Louisiana Monroe

I am tired of watching Dooley run up and down the sideline like a jckass. I Just watched Stanford, their coach is as cool as the other side of the pillow all game --- exudes confidence
does not act like a frightened child.

If Derek Dolley's name was Pete Smith and his father drove a bread truck would he have been hired from la Tech as UT's coach?

Written on John Adams: Not worst Tennessee team ever :

When Dooley was hired it was a different time.

possible ncaa penalties

weak AD

just beginning fulmers pay out

small window to hire due to kiffins late departure

Well all those are gone now

no ncaa penalties

new AD with lots of power and knowledge

dooleys pay out will be much less than fulmer

fire and hire now and new hc has adequate time to put together recruiting class

if you look at the circumstances you may see why Hart may pull the trigger especially if you add in as we have seen at other schools dooley is not harts hire.

Defensively- we have adjusted they won't score in the second half you can book it (0n offense that is)

I think we now know that is not true in hindsight this teams victory over Cincinnati may have been the biggest upset in UT history!

time for a random rant:

Watched games all day yesterday with tailbacks busting the hole and breaking tackles It was refreshing, at first I had a hard time recognizing this phenomenon since the last time I saw it at UT game a guy named Hardesty was toting the ball.

Who knew how bad we would miss Crompton!(SARCASM) Simms and Whorley make him look like Peyton Manning

Speaking of Whorley NO ONE should be blaming any of this mess on him he was just minding his business riding out his planned red shirt year waiting for his time to come in probably 2 years
then Dooley begins to see 3 and 8 or 4 and 7 this year not the presumed 6-6 and music city bowl and panics.

Nash Nance is like a reliever in the pen ready to go and the last pitcher has given up 9 home runs in a row and the manager still thinks I like my chances with the guy in the game (not saying Nance is any good but man they must really think he sucks)

Who knew Tyler Bray was our version of the colts Peyton Manning I mean you go from a team that can throw the ball to a team that cant get a single 1st down in an entire half or complete a .
basic pass play .

Enough with the old school everything pro set pro type offense that has no room for a QB that could possibly oh lets say run for 5 yards every now and then. Open this thing up spread the field throw it 40 times if you have to.

Traditional only uniforms (those white shoes and pants looked awfully 70,s looking) hell lets let the kids wear black every now and join the 21st century!!

right now UT is the staid no fun school hell this a game played by college kids make it fun!

I will cast my vote and I am a 50 plus year fan
this if it is not the worst UT team ever it has to be close.

ARKNSAS- LOSS
MTSU - WIN
KY - WIN
VANDY - LOSS THAT'S RIGHT THE WAY UT IS PLAYING RIGHT NOW VANDY WILL WIN THIS GAME

I will say right now I am mad as hell and sick of this mess and I hope a lot of Tennessee fans are also because the day you don't have fans angry over a a bad to mediocre football team you then have real problems. If you think angry fans are bad well try apathetic fans then you have real problems!!

sorry about the rant

Play Whorley win a game now whatever it takes!!

Written on Vols receivers working to cut down drops:

If the team want to cut down on WR drops it's easy

LEAVE ROGERS ON THE BENCH FOR HOME GAMES
LEAVE HIM IN KNOXVILLE FOR AWAY GAMES.

It just shows what a loss Hunter was, not only did we lose Hunter we also now have Rogers.We went from a future NFL player to a guy that wouldn't make the travel team by most SEC schools.

Rogers drops are nothing new he has done this since arriving in Knoxville and if I remember correctly had a huge drop against LSU last year when we were trying to kill clock at the end.

nothing personal I am sure he is probably a good kid but come on man this is "big boy" football you drop the ball you don't play.
