Me, you, and the collective WE have always deserved better than Dooley! You all kill me with this we don't deserve better malarky. He couldn't motivate our players (who deserve better), our former players (who deserve better), us fans who've been watching since we were babies. Dooley didn't beat one respectable team. He sucked at recruiting. He blamed everything but himself. Of course we deserve better. I know I do cause my loyalty is to the Vols and those who assist in the Vols winning and earning a rep as a dominant team. If you don't think you deserve better, then I don't know why you are even here. We the fans are the ones paying the admin to make good hires, indirectly or not. The deployment statement was to show how dedicated and what I would do for the Vols, even during hell. Dooley failed me and failed you, Get your head out of your rear.
"What makes you think you deserve anything? Just maybe you are part of the problem mot the solution. Just shut up."
Dave the Idiot,I said "we" deserve better as Vol Faithful. And yes, when I'm doing 4 freaking deployments overseas working 60 hours a week, waking up at ungodly hours to maybe see my Vols on the Armed forces network loose yet again, I do deserve better. So come shut me up then. You moronic Doolaid drinkers are partially responsible for allowing him to coach another season after the horrific KY game loss (where Bray was "sick")-another Dooley excuse. You must not be a Vol fan and enjoy watching them loose.
Correction, being a "hater" is hating somebody because they are doing good. Like disliking Manning or Brady. I personally could care less how good of a man Dooley is. We hired him to coach, recruit, and win! We didn't hire him cause of his manners or good intentions. So all of you Dooley supporters, have fun watching the cowboys not make the playoffs again. I'm all on board for Butch. Now he is a coach. Dooley may do well as receivers coach. Maybe, and if he does, fine with me, but he should have never been our HC. So don't tell me not to be bitter towards him after 3 horrible seasons and a huge buyout. Worst Vol coach ever, and we deserve better as die hard fans.
OH man Dooley w/ the Cowboys that's rich. You know what would be great?? If they drafted Bray. They deserve each other. Ha
This just in, Dooley SUCKS!
Fan, KingDanno doesn't care.
I'm not a twitter fan and think most social media is a waste of time. But you know what? High school kids and now, college kids are all about it. So Butch will get ahead recruiting with twitter. So who cares how you feel about twitter! If it gets us more recruits, he's doing his freaking job. That and if the fans have a good idea and can communicate it to him via twitter (i.e. a recruit that was overlooked), good. Get em Butch!

Support Butch! He's got a fire in his eye and that's what I want. Hart can suck it cause he's a Bama guy. Put ole Phil as AD. 6 years seems long, but I like Butch and from what I've seen, we are going to be firing on all cylinders under his management and influence. Now shut up and show your support! We got rid of Dooley, everyone thinks they know it all. You want someone on the up and up, not someone already at the top. Now let's get our Defense up to par, keep our O, and whoop some anus!
LET'S GET THIS PARTY STARTED BUTCH! LIGHT THAT FIRE!
Spell YEAH! BAMF's recognize fellow BAMF's. He has the players respect, has intensive nature and dedication. He is a motivator. He is a leader. He's our man.
FACT OF THE MATTER IS HE IS OUR COACH. NOW GET ON BOARD AND QUIT YOUR WHINING! DOOLEY IS GONE. DOOLEY SUCKED. I SUPPORTED DOOLEY AT FIRST UNTIL HE PROVED OTHERWISE. I WILL SUPPORT DAVIS UNTIL HE PROVES THAT HE DOESN'T DESERVE MY SUPPORT. IT IS AS SIMPLE AS THAT. GET OVER IT AND CARRY ON. HE DIDN'T LOOSE TO DOOLEY, HE LOST TO BRAY AND OUR POWERHOUSE OFFENSE-ONE THAT HE NOW CONTROLS. SO DOOLEY'S DECISIONS DIDN'T CAUSE THE VOLS TO LOOSE THE GAME, FOR ONCE. OUR PLAYERS WERE MOTIVATED AGAINST CINCI. THIS MAN HAS STEPPED UP AND OFFERED HIS SERVICES FOR OUR TEAM. I WANTED GRUDEN TOO, BUT WE ARE GOING TO HAVE TO GET IT DONE W/O ALL THE HOPLA AND FRENZY THAT SURROUNDS GRUDEN. LET'S GO BUTCH! WIN A FEW AND YOU'LL SHUT THESE MOUTHS UP. THEY ARE JUST STILL DEEPLY WOUNDED BY THE KIFFEN AND DOOLEY FIASCO. WE NEED BRAY, HUNTER, AND PATTERSON TO STAY AND WE'LL BE A CONTENDER!!!! NOW SIT BACK AND ENJOY THE HOLIDAYS HAPPY THAT WE DON'T HAVE TO DEAL W/ DOOLEY ANY LONGER. THAT WILL BE ALL.
I'd be ok with Strong. I'd be ok with Petrino (just keep him on a short leash and short initial contract) I'd be ok with Fisher, though I don't think he's leaving. I'm not sold on Gundy. Let Oki State have him.
First, I like how Strong operates. Sounds like a good response and respectable. Second, Hart just Friday contacted Gruden's agent?? WTH? If that is true what has Hart been doing? That sounds like a very short conversation and Hart comes across as not being persuasive at all. He didn't expect Gruden to come, so he didn't even try. Hart, you are on thin ice!!!
No not "hoping they come to a crescendo"
That is not how you coach. It is more along the lines of I expect out of each and every one of these men to come to a crescendo during game time, and if not, YOU are a bunch of LOSERS who need to do some freakin soul searching and get your rear in gear!!
I keep hearing he IS coming. I quit listening to these writers a long time ago, but it pleases me to express my concern here for the current state of our program. I heard today, he has signed a memorandum of understanding and will come after the TItans on MNF in Nashville. I want to believe it is true, so I will. It would be very satisfying for everyone to eat their words while Gruden brings us back!
Stay another season you can improve draft position and win some real games w/o Dooley!!
Dumb question, the answer is no. Cause we want a new coach immediately, not just weeks before signing day totally screwing over the university.
BRAY: 400 YARDS 4 TD'S WE LOOSEOUR PLAYERS ARE BETTER THAN THIS. IF DOOLEY IS BACK NEXT SEASON, I DON'T THINK I'LL EVEN WATCH.
If you look at my previous 100 comments, I said FIRE DOOLEY already. I don't know what they are waiting on...He won't get us to a bowl game (AGAIN!!!)
Let the clock just tick out?????!!!!!!WHAT ARE YOU DOING DOOLEY!!!!
2 More years? Are you freakin kidding me? Even if we beat them 50-0, it wouldn't justify that. What are you a Freshman from out of town?
Eat Crow huh? Troy? THE SUNBELT CONFERENCE!I'll admit improvement when we beat a ranked team idiot. And it will probably be without Dooley!
You all have 1 good half against Mizzou and that is supposed to make up for freakin piss poor performances against all our rivals. You have some phooey memories!
It's not hard to justify at all. Look at our SEC record the past 2 years.
Mizzou is not Bama FL GA SC LSU ect.
"If they win out, I think Dooley will be retained. However, I just don't see how he can justify keeping Sanseri. I don't doubt that this guy is a good football coach, but I don't think he was ready for this job."
Good performance today so far, but we need coaches who can compete against many ranked teams every season, and win at least some.
Patterson has got skills to pay the bills!!We need him back next year. Graduate from UT young man and make us proud. Same goes for Bray. Next season we should be a top ten team. Dooley and Sal, I'm glad you got it fixed but your hole is too big. Even if you win out.
Lend him your hand and the two walk away together, out of state.
I can't watch another game with Dooley as coach. I don't care if we barely beat Troy. With this win, he probably won't be fired either. See you all next season.
If Dooley was smart, which he is not when it comes to football, he would have ran the clock out and kicked. D has given up too much. Gotta take control of the clock.
It's sad it had to come to this to get ppl to open their eyes. I don't know how it wasn't seen it all along. I was thinking the Dooley support from disguised by other teams.
If us loosing means a change in coaching staff. So be it.
We may just have 500 points scored on us this season.
Why have we allowed this to go on is what I want to know. Don't give me that buyout phooey. This is the first time ever in my life that I have lost hope in the Vols.
Look on the bright side, if we don't make a bowl, we don't have to get embarrassed in it.
"THE HIGH PRIEST OF LOSING"!Booley said, "well the penalties are getting us what we have to do is go into half time and coach these boys up"Fantastic! We are now going to start coaching. Finally. Genius.
So maybe they should start with not moving off the line until the ball is snapped. FAIL!
Field Goal Dooley??? Way to go w/ your "moral victory" into half time. WTF? Are you serious Dooley. He has to just want to get fired and bought out.
I'm not even upset. And we are loosing with 1 min left in the half. You know why???? Cause we suck! I know we suck. I know we are going to continue to suck. We are hopeless with Dooley at the helm. I have zero hope with these coaches. I've been saying it since last season. Do you think we are going to do well? Blame it on Sal, whatever. The season has been over for a month. I'll be excited again and start caring when we pay someone millions who actually can do their job.
I'm not posting anymore until we get some real coaches. Screw this.
tovolny:"but my opinion will only amount to a thimble of water poured off the Henley Street Bridge."
You have made that abundantly clear. We know what is going to happen. Dooley is out!! MNF and the hurricane has delayed the announcement. I heard from a very reliable source, that the CEO of Direct TV has bought out Dooley's remaining contract. Why would he do this? So far with Gruden, the ratings that have gone to ESPN on MNF are largely increasing. Gruden is too good. Maybe they want to sell some games on payperview. Who cares why!!!!!! What is important is I am pretty sure that we have my main man Gruden! I said it's great to be a TN VOL!!
King Spite thee VolBoro! You can get the first serving.
I just heard Dooley got bought out and Gruden was hired at 33 million for 5 years BABY!! The rumors just may be true!! Thank you God. Supposed to not be announced until post Hurricane. Yes!!!! All you naysayers saying Gruden won't come eat it!!!!! Eat that up and get a taste of greatness when you believe in who you are. We are TN!!!
OHHH, relax everybody, they are still communicating! Maybe they just thought they shouldn't bother w/ communicating last week since we were taking on Bama. I waited with my excitement, attention, time, money, all offseason for this?????
Unfortunately, we are the punch line.
"Dooley says the over simplification is why they were beat on long balls. Nice. I.e. "we don't know how to coach them the proper way, or they are not talented enough to learn.""
Spot on. Dooley's press conference last week said it all. We aren't executing. We never were executing. You can wish for us to execute week in and week out and in doing so, it may make you want to execute yourself, let alone buy more TN gear and pay for seats. You can get a great view. You'll see me, Booley in the orange pants, throwing my headset down in frustration from not being able to coach the players to make what they call "plays".
Tyler is lucky to have the O-line watching his back. If he starts getting sacked, I would like to see how he reacts to the pressure. I thought he would have packed on alot more muscle at this point too. Bray will bring his A game, Dooley can't blame the ppl forever. He's knows he is on his way out. If he can get a 7-5 record and win a bowl game, maybe he can walk out of here with his head high. But make no mistake, he still should be walking out of here!
He's coming back. I keep checking on here to see if Dooley is fired yet...
Benching Bray will take our O down and make our team strictly one dimensional-we don't have the Defense to be a running team. Next he will be blaming the home field not being an advantage from the away teams fans buying our seats. I don't like Bray's actions but Dooley shut up and quit trying to misdirect responsibility. If he benches Bray, we may just loose to Kentucky again.
Get Dooley OUT! Improvement? Yeah they should improve, they are now upper class. They would improve at a camp for boys. But this is the SEC. I can't believe what I'm hearing. Even if he wins out, I think he should go.
Dooley you have to constantly stay on the players. Bray simply doesn't look, act, perform, or seem to understand what it is to be a competitor. But YOU have been hired to teach it and see that it's priority to everyone especially QB. You are here to compete! Now for some reason, I think you are doing this cause you have to in order to save face. Maybe they teach that in law school. Bray should have been strictly reprimanded after the Kentucky game. Don't give me that I'm sick. Get off the field if you are sick! Bray needs to man up. Dooley needs to man up cause he is responsible. You are both pouting in my opinion. Make it into the force that drives you. Either compete or go away! Don't say you'll bench him if he throws a pic. All qb's throw them even Manning. Bray will throw one also. It may or may not be his fault. Would you know if it was? Say you'll bench him if he doesn't give you 100% (which he doesn't unless he is winning which is now rare). That is a crappy statement. No half anus players should be tolerated. That lands on Dooley. Bray thinks he is NFL bound? Maybe he will care once he is benched, his stats fall, and they wonder why and see that he has little passion for winning. But Dooley is a mentor to these men. Bray will now think Dooley doesn't have his back in adversity. But if it makes Bray get his head out of his anus, fine! At this point, who cares we just want to see real improvement which means winning against good teams! Just seems like another excuse to me. Defense is the main reason we are loosing and teams are all over us in the second half. Why don't you bench Sal too?
