Wonder if he ever ran into Radar while in Ottumwa?

I should have known somebody else would know this and post it before I finished scrolling down. Didn't mean to step on your lead!

No problem.

Written on Jarnell Stokes named to U19 Team USA :

in response to Couchdummy:

If U19 means under 19, then I am confused. Jarnell was born on January 7, 1994, which means he is 19 now? If the Big 10 is comprised of 12 teams, and Jarnell is under 19, then I need to go back to take the new math being taught in school.

The cutoff date for age is December 31st of the previous year. If his 19th birthday was January 7, 2013, he would have been 18 on December 31, 2012.

I agree!

What's the difference in the hatred he sprewed and the hatred you just spewed? Kettle meet pot!

Written on Offseason could be time to evaluate Cuonzo Martin's contract:

They should have saved this article until April 1st.

Written on John Adams: Taber Spani did everything she could in her increased role:

Spani had a very good game. Good for her. My favorite player on this team.

Something must have gone wrong during the rinse cycle this year.

Written on Cuonzo Martin focused on keeping Vols focused:

in response to johnlg00:

Yep, even a stopped clock is right twice a day. (For you younger folks, once upon a time clocks had what they call "hands" that moved around a "dial" except that when the clock stopped, the hands stayed where they were.(;-P))

Good post! Confuse them even more and tell them about the "second" hand. They will never believe it.

Written on Lady Vols turned over and around by Kentucky's pressure, 78-65:

in response to DebKY:

Unfortunately, I didn't expect Tennessee to pull off a win in Lexington.
I would like to remind Mitchell in person about his negative remarks that he publicly made about Pat Summitt. During his first year as coach at UK, he was doing a press conference the day before the Louisville game. He talked about how he had grown up hating hating Louisville. Then he suddenly changed the subject and said that Pat Summitt was too old and needed to go to the house.
Go Big Orange!!

Not a UK fan by any means, but you are wrong about how Coach Mitchell feels about Coach Summitt. I think it has been well documented that he admires and respectes her and he appreciates the opportunity she gave him years ago. I saw the interview, and his comments were made in jest. Here is a link showing some of his comments about CPS.

Written on Cuonzo Martin focused on keeping Vols focused:

Maybe CM should have spent more time on the focus thing last week.

Written on Jay Graham reunites with Randy Sanders, Sal Sunseri at Florida State:

Doesn't really matter why he left for FSU. The fact is, he left, so time to hire his replacement and move on.

Written on Simmons leads No. 11 Tennessee past Arkansas 60-54:

Good win, but what is it with women and layups? They seem to have a hard time making them.

Written on No. 5 Florida falters against Missouri:

Vols win, Gators lose....Good times!

Written on Lady Vols think offense against Vanderbilt, 83-64:

in response to Volinflan:

What are you talking about? I just watched
the game on ESPN. Chattanooga area, cable.

I watched it here in Hazard on ESPN2 through Dish Network. Good game!

Written on Josh Richardson: 'It's payback week' for Vols :

It's usually a bad sign when these guys talk.

Written on Lady Vols get best of Virginia in dual:

in response to PreachersKid:

In this context, it's Duel, not Dual.

Could have been a dual duel.

Written on Tennessee walk-ons Derrick Brodus, Tyler Drummer, Dylan West receive scholarships :

in response to PUL4VOLS:

The impatience and impertinence of some on this site are astounding. We want to see those big numbered stars in THIS class. My oh my, are you all in grade school? With all that has gone on in the past 4-5 years, what a tall task for a new head coach!Give him some time and a year or two to show those 5,6,7 stars(you all dream of); what he and the staff can do. Finally, all you who keep bringing up the former head coach, REALITY CHECK: He is gone, vamooshed; remember, you experts got him fired. There's a new kid on campus and he is not the man you ran down for...about the whole time he was here. At least the former head coach was someone willing to take the job even if he was lacking in ability to get it done.
I say, let's wait until about mid-Oct this year and see where the Vols are. But no, the NEGA-VOLS will be out because we had no 5 stars, we had deCommits etc. Please get a life, stay on fantasy football sites, heck pull for the basketball team, they need it. Give the football program a break from your He can't, They can't, We can't attitudes. Okay, I'm done, wish it would have snowed last night in my hometown. But then, winter is still young.

Impatience? Jones has been the coach for well over a month now, with no SEC or National Championships to show for it. It's time to get rid of this bum and hire a good coach. You know, someone that can recruit all 5* players and win games without them ever being played.

Written on Mark Wiedmer: Vols' missing MVP very evident in loss:

in response to 1vavolfan:

Maymon will be back next season and UT will have a decent season buying Martin more time. After that, we will have a team full of 3 star recruits and will be the South Carolina of the league. Our PG can't stay in games because of his defense and Martin's answer? Armani Moore and next season Travon Landry, a 2 star PG averaging about 3 points per game in high school.

I don't think you can count on Maymon being back next season. If the knee is not healing properly and within that time frame, he may not be able to come back next season even if he wants to. Great if he does, but they need to prepare to play the season as if he is not coming back.

Written on Video highlights from the Tennessee-Ole Miss game:

Highlights???? Are you serious????

Written on Lady Vols use big second half to beat Georgia :

Good win. Another one down and only 1088 more to go.

Written on Decision for UT, Jeronne Maymon looming:

Sitting out this season would be a good choice. Make sure the knee heals properly. No point in taking a chance with his health.

Written on Are you satisfied with the coaching staff Butch Jones has put together?:

If Butch is happy, then I'm happy.

Written on Western Kentucky hires Petrino as football coach:

Maybe when he gets to Bowling Green, he can trade his bike for a Corvette.

I'm more interested in what is going to happen on December 21st. Any ideas?

Don't you think Cheeks looks a little like Bart Starr in this picture above?

Yes I do.

Written on UT Athletics halts academic donations; money needed to fund coaching change :

I'm at least glad to see they put the buyout on the easy payment plan.

in response to rockytopjeff:

No disrespect to your highly educated, overrated opinion of yourself, but Stripes is a CLASSIC!! One of the most popular movies of all time. Maybe you should watch it, might give you a laugh. It's obvious that you could use one

I agree. I have two engineering degrees from UTK and I liked Stripes. I've seen it several times and wouldn't mind watching it again after all this talk about it.

Written on Vols hoping they can always beat Vanderbilt:

Hope Rodgers doesn't have a career day. If so, it will be a long day.

Written on Vols' offense goes on vacation against Oklahoma State, 62-45 :

Shooting was a problem last year and looks like it may be a problem this year too. It's early, but bad habits are hard to break. 26% won't win many games no matter how good the defense is.

Written on Vols start with win in Puerto Rico, 75-68 :

in response to Witch_Doctors:

Witch Doctor say its the same posters no matter the sport or team. Witch Doctor say Sandusky Ohio must be one boring place. lol.

Written on Lady Vols bounce back, beat Georgia Tech 71-54 :

in response to monstermd:

Balance has been restored. Nice adjustments Coach Warlick. And congratulations on your fist win as Lady Vols Head Coach

Only 1098 more wins to pass Pat. Hope you make it.

Written on With game on the line, UT's defense not there :

The defense was never in the game and the offense quit at half time.

Written on Swarm of defenders to follow Jarnell Stokes for now :

Stokes is going to be a very good player and a silver lining to this Vol team, but he will not have help on a day to day basis. He can't do it by himself. Some of the other players are going to have to step up their play or this will be a long season.

Written on Report card :

in response to vol98champ:

The guy who passes out these grades has to be putting mega dollars on the over betting. If you have watched every minute of every game this year you are either insane or one tough dude.

With the grades he passes out, he can't be watching the games.

Written on Lady Vols off to a humbling start :

in response to madrigal:

I just LOVE the way the haters are already coming out and saying fire Holly after the first game of the season. If you guys are so great and know so much, why aren't you out coaching at a Div. I school?

Well, I'm not a hater and don't have a problem with Holly coaching. I don't know about all the other people, but I'm not out coaching at a Division I school, because I'm too busy saving the world and hanging out with Lois Lane.

Written on Stunned No. 20 Lady Vols need to regroup quickly:

Looks like it's going to be a long season. The ladies don't have enough top quality players this year. The next class should help. The Lady Vols should be fine in 2 or 3 years.

Like I said it will come down to the Kentucky vs Tennessee Thanksgiving Weekend to see who will be winless in the SEC.


I think you've hit the nail on the head.

Written on Final score: Tennessee survives with a 55-48 win over Troy :

in response to pcshowtime:

why is everybody complaining about the players. 9 of 11 starters back from last years 27th ranked defense. Was Justin Wilcox that good as DC last year or is Sal Sunseri that bad.

Yes on both counts.

Written on Tennessee, South Carolina both trying to bounce back from lopsided losses :

in response to pcshowtime:

This whole thing rest at the coaching staffs feet. The dooley gang will say the coaches do not pass, catch, block, kick or tackle. So I will pick out the in-excusable things that the coaches did do. Let 1 min burn off the clock and did not call a timeout at the end of the 1st half. I guess dooley thought he could put them in his pocket. In the second half had to call a timeout too many men on the field. but the big one that guttless dooley kicks a field goal on the 3 yard line down by 34 points. He is a absolute career loser. He will never post over a .500 record no matter where he coaches.

The coaches don't pass, catch, block, kick, run or tackle. Their job is to teach the players how to do these things, and so far it doesn't appear that they are doing their job very well. Too many dropped passes and too many missed tackles.

Written on Will the Vols finish with a winning record?:

in response to westknoxrepub:

Try Kentucky and ???

I hope the Vols can beat KY this year. It's been a hard year here in Hazard since last year's game. I'm hoping the Vols can start the streak again this year, but after watching the Cats play the Dawgs Saturday night, I don't think it will be a cake walk.

Written on A.J. Davis adds to Cuonzo Martin's haul:

in response to mocsandvolsfan:

Did Ashley Judd finally switch to UT????

I certainly hope not!!!!!

Written on Peyton Manning doesn't miss a beat as Broncos down Steelers:

Glad to see Peyton doing well. Indy's loss was Denver's gain. He means much more to the community than winning football games.
