Written on John Adams: Fitting system to players could serve Butch Jones well :

You guys trash Adams but having 11 men on the field would be nice. It is a fair point.

Written on New UT coach Butch Jones in Knoxville:

Well im not overly excited but lets hold judgement until we can see what Coach Jones can do. Go Vols! Atleast the Derek Dooley era is over.

Written on ESPN report says Charlie Strong is top candidate for Tennessee head football coach:

in response to DalTexVol:

Is Mississippi State in the Sugar Bowl? Because Louisville is.

We need Charlie Strong. I have wanted him from the start. He is an excellent recruiter. If he comes here and bombs then ill be the first to admit that I was wrong. However, I think Coach Strong will be an excellent hire. Go Vols. Bring Charlie Strong back to the SEC!

Written on Is Tennessee's coaching search nearing the finish line, or does Dave Hart still plan more talks? :

Ive wanted Charlie Strong from the very start. Charlie Strong is an excellent recruiter and has his team in the BCS. Let's go get Charlie and win some ball games.

Written on Tough enough? No choice for Vols against Georgetown :

WOW! I love UT basketball but it is going to be really difficult to get this team to the NCAA Tournament. Our offense is awful. We have no real shooter. Next year is going to be worse when we lose Stokes, Maymon, Golden, and McBee.

Written on Gruden, Haslam, Browns shoot down Memphis report over UT deal:

in response to BigOrangeRock:

Hire Fulmer back. He can transition to Peyton/Chief in a couple of years, once he brings LIFE BACK to the program.

How is he going to give LIFE back to the program. Under recruit and lose to wyoming. Please Fulmer isn't coming back and he doesn't deserve too.

Written on Philadelphia report says Eagles keen to hire Gruden:

I would be shocked if he took the Eagles job. He is not going to Philly and upstage one of his best friends Andy Reid. The San Diego job makes alot more sense. Gruden isn't coming to Tennessee but he isn't going to Philly either.

Written on John Adams: No shame for UT in a big-name rejection :

in response to civilianvol_formerly_marinevol:

If Stoops thinks he's not appreciated at Oklahoma, he should talk to Phillip Fulmer about how much the University of Tennessee appreciates a successful coach.

The great pumpkin is gone. Get over it please! All you Fulmer fans out there are looking really sad these days. Fulmer isn't coming back and he shouldn't come back. Lets move forward as a fan base and stop living in the past.

Written on At least history is kind to Tennessee offense :

Thanks to the seniors who gave everything to UT. This year didn't turn out the way we all wanted it too. I believe we all know why. It's going to be a new day for Tennessee now that our worst coach in our history is gone. Thanks again to the players and I can't wait for next year. It's Basketball Time In Tennessee!!!!

Written on Dave Hart: Vols 'at a crossroads' :

in response to GloryDays:

Anything is better than Dooley.

Hire Fulmer as coach
Tropper Taylor as OC
Chief at DC
Tee Martin at WR coach
Jay Graham at RB coach
Sam Pittman at OL coach
Dale Jones at LB coach
Al Wilson to personally take care of discipline problems.

IF FULMER IS SURROUNDED BY GOOD PEOPLE HE WOULD DO A GOOD JOB.

So you are suggesting that if Coach Fulmer is surrounded by great coaches then he will win? I think that could be said with Coach Dooley or me for that matter. We need a proven head coach that can come in here and win NOW!!! Coach Fulmer did alot for UT but the game has passed him by. If it hadn't there would be universities lining up to hire him. So how many D-1 job offers does Fulmer have? Hire Charlie Strong and lets get this show on the road. Go Vols, it's a beautiful day!

Written on Halftime: Vanderbilt 13, Tennessee 10 :

I have to laugh! If I don't laugh, im going to cry. My once proud Tennessee Volunteers reduced to this. Im so sick right now. Dooley please go away, PLEASE!

Written on First quarter: Vanderbilt 3, Tennessee 0 :

Please Dooley, just go away. You are banned from Knoxville. Do not get back on the bus! Please Dave Hart, end our collective misery.

Written on First quarter: Vanderbilt 3, Tennessee 0 :

Words cannot describe the complete lack of intellegence that exists within the brain of Derek Dooley.

Written on Vols tied with Missouri 28-28 heading to overtime :

in response to ArmyO6VOL:

My guess is that we will lose to Vandy by 14.

Sir if you believe we will only lose by 14, you have a very kind heart. This team will get smashed. Im taking 41 to 21, Vandy.

Written on Vols tied with Missouri 28-28 heading to overtime :

FEAR THE PANTS!!! You won't have Tennessee to kick around anymore! DOOLEY DOOLEY DOOLEY!!! Good ole Rocky Top!!! Is this getting everyone excited for the loss to Candy Vandy??? Dave Hart you gutless worm, fire him now! If Dooley is still here next year my donation is gone. It isn't much but im not giving a dime to the worst run athletic program in the country! Just go away Dooley, Hart, and Cheek! Where is my Tennessee? Stuck below Vandy and Mizzou! Makes me sick!

Written on Vols tied with Missouri 28-28 heading to overtime :

in response to tensie2004:

Missouri will kick field goal and win their first ever S.E.C. game against who? Dooley coached University of Tennessee. What a sad, sad day. sick at my stomach.

They already beat Kentucky, but we get to be second. Great job Dooley! You sir are a complete tool bag! C'mon Doolaide drinkers, whats your boys excuse today???

Written on Vols tied with Missouri 28-28 heading to overtime :

Well I hope this game has converted a few more to the Dark Side. Don't let anyone tell you that "TRUE" Vol fans blindly support a coach. You should always support a kid who comes here to wear the orange but you don't have to support anyone that is making money off of our university. Fire Dooley NOW!!!

Written on Vols tied with Missouri 28-28 heading to overtime :

It's about to be ballgame kids. Congrats Mizzou.

Written on Vols tied with Missouri 28-28 heading to overtime :

This game should be over already!

Written on Third: Vols 28, Missouri 21 :

First time i've ever said this but, good call Dooley.

Written on Third: Vols 28, Missouri 21 :

Worst coaching staff in America. 2 timeouts and 30 seconds left on the board?!?!?! Terrible Terrible!!!! Derek Dooley just go away!

Written on University of Tennessee trustees say complaints that administration is obstructing athletics aren't accurate :

It has nothing to do with admissions, and everything to do with Jimmy Cheek sticking his nose in buisness where it doesn't need to be. I realize that he is ultimately Dave Hart's boss but Cheek has no real knowledge of how to run an athletic department. Jimmy Cheek needs to go away, along with Dooley.

Written on Derek Dooley on job status: 'I really do not think about that' :

in response to GeneralNeylandsReturn:

yes they do, better chemistry as the season has gone on, unlike last year...also unlike last year the team is getting bettter each week with exception of the Miss St game.

Its too early to get into that HC spiral...work on getting better staff, better coordinators, bettter recruiters...let Dooley learn that he doesn't have to micro-manage then - we are not that far off, yes we lost to 4 very good teams, and one pretty good team - yet three of those we probably could have won with a break or two.

if we panic now we lose five to seven more years in fixing the catastrophe created in 2008

Im so sick of hearing this excuse! If you hire the right coach we aren't going to be set back. I don't accept losses. I don't accept losing to Kentucky! CDD hasn't gotten it done. PLAIN AND SIMPLE! Plus look at our recruiting class, who cares is they bail on us. We are behind Vandy in recruiting anyway.

Written on Derek Dooley on job status: 'I really do not think about that' :

in response to movol53:

Keep in mind that when Gruden won a Super Bowl with another coaches players todays high school players were in 1st grade!!!! They have no clue who he is; unless they happen to see him on ESPN and that may make them wonder why he is NOT coaching; if he is any good at it. So yes, he can walk into someones home and flash that Super Bowl ring AFTER he introduces himself to the family. I work with high school kids everyday, all day and 5 years ago is ancient history to them!!!

What do you mean "another coach's players"? It is the NFL players can stay with the same team for 15 years. There is no such thing as "another coach's players" in the NFL.

Written on John Adams: Forget cowbells; it all sounds familiar for Vols :

Here is a good Dooley excuse. His hip was hurting and he was in the press box. He couldn't really grasp the game way up there in the box. It isn't his fault, he is just the head coach. It's not his responsibility! Fear The Pants!!! You won't have Tennessee to kick around anymore!! Fire Dooley!!

Written on Halftime: Tennessee 30, Georgia 30 :

If Georgia can do this to us, what will Alabama do?

Written on Halftime: Tennessee 30, Georgia 30 :

in response to gwavescVOL:

This isn't on Dooley, Bray looks like Crompton and the D is watching the game (interior line has done ok)

Your right the head coach is no way responsible for what happens on the field. Darn you Tyler Bray for not making the appropriate half time adjustments instead of the guy who makes a million dollars!!!!

Written on Halftime: Tennessee 30, Georgia 30 :

(This comment was removed by the site staff.)

Two outstanding defenses? Which ones, Georgia's first team and second team?

Written on Halftime: Tennessee 30, Georgia 30 :

Dooley Dooley Dooley!!!! Yes only 9 men on the field for the 2 pt conversion. Dooley throws 13 men on the field and now only 9? What a freakin joke! Fire that lame duck coach!!!!

Written on Halftime: Tennessee 30, Georgia 30 :

Dont get excited. The defense still hasn't proven they can stop anyone.

Written on Halftime: Tennessee 30, Georgia 30 :

in response to kd45music:

Would the person who said Dooley should ask Hart for a contract extension like to retract that statement? what goes on, or more like it, doesn't go on, at halftime? Even the announcers on the Vol Network can see the mistakes in alignments, assignments, etc. Terrible, terrible, terrible.

Awesome! What turd said Dooley should get an extension?

Written on Halftime: Tennessee 30, Georgia 30 :

Yes down 13!!!! Dooley Dooley Dooley!!!! Fear the pants. UGA wont have Tennessee to kick around anymore! C'mon Doolaid drinkers, where are you??

Written on Halftime: Tennessee 30, Georgia 30 :

Well good ole Tennessee Football is back. Play em close in the first half and give it away in the second! But the Dooley lovers will point to all the moral victories!

Written on Derek Dooley gets another shot against ranked opponent :

in response to allvol8:

Funny a lot of people want UT to put out the money for a new coach.. I do not hear anyone that wants this to VOLUNTEER to foot the bill to pay off the coaches and hire new ones... any how GBO!

I want them fired and i'm a donor to the university. So yes I am helping foot the bill. Go crawl back under whatever rock you came from.

Written on Derek Dooley gets another shot against ranked opponent :

I love how only REAL vol fans blindly follow Derek Dooley and support him, hooray! Last time I checked CDD makes money and quite a bit of money compared to my meager salary. I support any kid that wears the orange but I sure don't have to support the coach! Last years Kentucky game proved that Dooley couldn't get this done. The Florida game was not the first time this team gave up, they seem to do it with every loss. Dooley makes either no half time adjustments or the wrong adjustment every time! How many years are you willing to give this joke. 7 to 9 years and Dooley will have it on track! Just have faith vol fans!

Written on Almost Zipped: Akron gives Vols plenty of problems, 47-26 :

Well bring on the Bulldogs. If you thought the Florida game was bad, oh BOY!

Written on Final: Florida 37, Tennessee 20:

Hmmmm.......seems an awful lot like last year, except this beat down was much worse. Go ahead and hop off the Dooley train. Don't be afraid to join us fans who never got on board. I sure hope we win a conference game. Bama,UGA,USC,Mizzou, and Miss St. are going to kill us. The season rests with Kentucky and Vanderbilt. We all saw how that turned out, right? Fight on Dooley, get ready for that big buyout.

Written on UT freshmen LaTroy Lewis (ACL), George Bullock (broken leg) out for the season:

Well if Bullock couldn't beat out Palardy, then its no big loss. Hate losing any linebacker at this point. Oh well, lets go out there and play hard. Thats all we ask.

Written on The heat is on Derek Dooley, but how hot remains to be seen :

in response to laraccoon:

Majors rebuilt UT in about 7 or 8 years . Handed a healthy program to Fulmer , who had a nice run . look what Doooley got handed , and after two seasons he is on the hot seat. Personally i still think were a year away , if we win 8 games this year Dooley should get coach of the year .

A year away??? It is pretty hard to be a year away when Tyler Bray and Justin Hunter are about to jump ship to the nfl. Also check out this years recruiting class. It's TERRIBLE!! We are 10th in the SEC right now. If we don't do it this year, then when will we ever?

Written on Bray, court reach agreement on boating case :

Geez! Does TWRA not have anything better to do. So ya'll save this post!!! This means NOTHING!!! Who cares,this is only a story because of the recent beer bottle incident. Im not sure "hot-dogging it" is a legal term anyway. Lets just get to some football please.

Written on Derek Dooley calls Bray incident 'silly behavior':

in response to ULTIMATEVOLUNTEER:

Actually vandalism would be a misdemeanor. Sort of like speeding or jaywalking. They are all against the law but there different punishments, fines, etc. to fit each.

Also sppeding isn't a misdemeanor, its a traffic violation.

Actually a person can be charged with felony vandalism, it just depends on how much damage was done. Either way Tyler needs to remove his head out of his arse and play some football. I know he didn't care to go to a small bowl last year but if he doesn't shape up, he might not be on the field at all.

Written on Tennessee has three commitments from area players for the 2013 class. Should the Vols continue down this path?:

Please NO!!! To much talent in the other SEC states to keep offering kids that love UT but just aren't talented enough.

Written on Who are you most eager to see get on the practice field?:

Im afraid Tennessee fans are getting their hopes up again. What honestly makes anyone think we can win 9 games next year. Is it the fact that Hunter may not be back to 100%, is it the fact that we have a completely different defensive scheme to learn, or is it the fact that this team took a step back last year? I love the Vols but we are all getting our hopes up only to be let down again.

I thought his post was reasonable, do you have any facts to back up your theory? He seems pretty smart to me.

Who is upset? Not I sir, you asked for facts and I have provided some. However I have noticed your back tracking. Its clever of you to try to change the subject when you are clearly being bested. Well played sir, well played.

Written on UT now down 3 coaches with departure of Justin Wilcox, Peter Sirmon:

I gave you facts! 2 losing seasons 2005 and 2008! If those arent facts im not sure what "facts" mean. Also overrated recruiting classes, the 2007 class for instance. apparently sir, you aren't reading my posts before you blindly post some random garbage.

You sure do like to assume a whole lot about people you've never met! No I never liked the Dooley hire! A coach with one decent season at LA Tech!? He should have never been hired in the first place. I just wish we had Kiffin back.

I must have dreamed up those losing seasons and overrated recruiting classes. I wanted CPF gone and I stick by what I believe. He thought he was bigger than the program and he lost it at the end. Be a man and admit that!

Written on UT now down 3 coaches with departure of Justin Wilcox, Peter Sirmon:

Fulmer should have been fired, he deserved it! The mistake was hiring Derek Dooley!
