Written on Vols' Randolph ready to return from torn ACL:

in response to antonio14313:

look for brian randolph to be almost as good a safety as eric berry was for UT. and, that's saying A LOT!

from one ACL recoverer to another: you got this!

GO VOLS!

t

I like your optimism, but Brian Randolph is no Eric Berry. Berry was one of the best Vols of all time.

Written on Mike Strange: 2014 schedule doesn't get easier for Vols:

Mark it down. Tennessee WILL beat Oklahoma next year.

Written on Butch Jones to pick QB early next week:

in response to BTKidd:

The fact that Worley has not already been named starter against Austin Peay speaks volumes. Whether he starts or not it will ultimately be decided after the first game. The fact that Jones recruited two more quarterbacks in such a short time revealed he was not overly impressed with the two he had. Personally, with the lack of play makers we have, i would prefer Dobbs because of his running ability. He reminds me of Tony Robinson. He looks to throw first. If it is not there he will run but is always looking to throw.

Dobbs being one of the smartest guys on the team helps too. He has the brains, maturity, and talent to be a breakout player in his sophomore year.

in response to lomas98:

This many qb's just means everyone on here will think the next guy in line is better. One of these guys will probably transfer by season end.

Yeah, someone will definitely transfer this yr. The 3rd or 4th string will. My guess is that it will be Ferguson.

Written on Butch Jones to pick QB early next week:

in response to ATX_VOL_FAN:

Might as well start one of the Freshmen QB's that Jones recruited. If they're all so even, and we're rebuilding, you might as well go with Dobbs, or Ferguson, to rebuild WITH them.

However, whoever is the chosen one that is who I'll support 100%. Until he lets us down lol.

Anxiously waiting for the decision.

Or Peterman, he was redshirted so he still has 4 yrs of eligibility left. My prediction is that Peterman will be chosen and Ferguson will end up transferring to somewhere he can start if he is 3rd string or lower.

Please not Worley

Written on Tennessee releases 2014 football schedule:

in response to WhitePineVol77:

This year our O line should be good...worry about our pass defense with frosh corners in 2013

I know the o-line will be amazing this year. I meant 8-4 in '14 and 10-2 in '15.

Written on Tennessee releases 2014 football schedule:

8-4 because of an inexperienced o-line. 10-2 the next year.

Written on Reaction to new UT uniforms likely generational:

in response to proudveteran:

That is the second game of the season - Western Kentucky! Then it is Oregon.

These uniforms (which will be worn for ONE game) are a reward for the players THAT ACTUALLY PLAY for The University of Tennessee. If you don't like it, take your unnecessary negativity and root for another team, while us unconditional vol fans celebrate a top 5 recruiting class and the return to prominence for the Volunteers.

Written on Reaction to new UT uniforms likely generational:

in response to lomas98:

Oh no.....another article and more stupid comments on a uniform they will wear ONCE. It's not like they have rewritten the maxims or doing away with the vol walk. In this day of conferences adding and losing teams, playoffs, social media, and uniform marketing, this alternate uniform is just the norm for college football these days.

Exactly, people are acting like these are gonna replace the Orange and White uniforms. It's just gonna be for one game.

Written on Vols buying into Butch Jones' many quirks:

It's sad that some so called vol fans are angry about Butch Jones rewarding his players by letting them wear some cool jerseys for ONE GAME!!!!!

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

Calm down, these are ALTERNATE uniforms. They will not be wearing these on a regular basis (but they do look awesome).

Written on Vols land four-star juco DL Lambert :

in response to DawgDayAfternoon:

I wonder if he'll one of the 10 or 12 in this class who'll decommit, when Butchie Boy turns in the Vols typical 5-7 record; leaving you with your usual class ranked 21st to 24th, and about 11th in the SEC?

Get used to having Tennessee taking recruits from your Georgia Bulldogs. That's 5 from the state of Georgia now. Georgia has 9, but 3 of them being 2 stars.

A JUCO? What a desperate move for UT

I guess Georgia, Auburn, and Florida are too then, right? You wish Kensucky could have him.

Written on UT freshman Corey Vereen undergoes knee surgery, but expected to return this year:

Has anyone heard anything on Jason Carr? I haven't heard his name mentioned at all.

Written on Defensive end Jacques Smith fractures thumb, out 4-6 weeks:

in response to 10seVol85_Part_Deux:

You see players (mainly O or D linemen and linebackers) play with busted fingers, thumbs, wrists all the time. I expect you're right.

I remember back in 2006, we had serious injuries to Inky Johnson (never played again, unfortunately) and Justin Harrell in the Air Force game. Harrell ruptured a tendon in his bicep which made it basically impossible for him to bend his arm at the elbow under his own power. He still played the next game against Florida before having surgery and ending his season after that game.

ha, the Air Force game was my first UT game

Written on David Climer: Vols could shake things up with freshman QB:

i trust butch jones to choose the right choice, but if it were worley, i would hope he would be much better than what i've seen of him. Whenever he came in last year he never seemed comfortable in the pocket. He always seemed jittery and awkward. I would want to see him improve like crompton did after kiffin got coached him. I say just start Dobbs. He has a great arm, he can run if needed, and he's probably the smartest guy on the team. He would be a great guy to build a team around. And this would be the best year to start Dobbs given how talented the O-line is this year. He wouldn't have to face much pressure.

Exlineman, and other legit Vols,

I've enjoyed your informative comments. You, Vol43, Johnlg, Gerry, NavalOranges, the Doctor, USAF etc. etc,
gosh it's great to know there are people here who want to stand behind the Vols........a nice departure from the idiots whose 'mission' here is to simply show their rear ends, run down the Vols, whine about the past..........such as the WiltedFlowers idiot who has this passion to dwell on individuals..........Karl Kremser, Glenn Ford, and most recently......Derek Dooley. We'll be enjoying Tennessee football in the future, and this jerk will be standing outside Neyland Stadium with a loud speaker and bill board hanging around his neck ........screaming to anyone who will hear him and his warped mission.

Yes, some of the trolls are the same person. The rest of us keep our same screen name and don't have to be banned and keep coming back here with a new one.

And yes, talk about insecurity........the individual who runs down the Vols and puffs up his 'diploma' as if he is the only one who can claim the allegiance.

Coach BJ is heading in the right direction. We move forward with him,
with no concern for the trolls and whiny birds ...........

Amen.

Written on A look at Tennessee's 2014 class after 3 new additions, including 4-star Todd Kelly Jr.:

in response to HtownVol:

If UT can get a few more 4 stars before the season there is no reason this class isnt a top 10 class. If all goes well it has a chance to be a top 5 class.
Since we just got a WR I am certain that UT can be very selective with any more WRs. We have more than enough.
Now it is time to build that defense and get the long awaited STUD RB!

top 5 is a long shot

As I posted yesterday, Vols to line twice as many times as UF. However, home time-clock seemed to work this time (may not have if game was closer)

UF stayed with ut even with 2-key players out, and losing a 3rd in the game to an injury.

So, here is how it will play out.

Gators go deep in NCAA, vols lose early in NIT.

Happens ever year.

And the Vols are missing Maymon. Your point is?
