you have to know the whole scenario, might have been a situational or something, but I agree. A high school team defense will be more improved than last years

in response to ReeseHallRelic:

Correct me if I'm wrong, but my hunch is that UT's 2013 schedule was probably pretty well set long before CBJ was hired... like set in stone! So the notion that CBJ dictated this schedule so that he could obtain a bonus for winning 6 games (IF, indeed, such a bonus exists) is clearly nonsensical.

You're soooooo sure that CBJ is a terrible coach, even though he's not even coached one game at UT yet. His track record is pretty good, and you cannot possibly trash his recruiting, since UT is currently #1 in the country. So, basically, you're playing a hunch, and you prove over and over again that your knowledge and instincts about college football are minimal.

You whine about UT playing only one good team outside the SEC? Look at the other SEC teams' schedules. Three teams play two quality outside-the-SEC teams, and everybody else doesn't play more than one. Take a look at the schedules for Missouri, Texas A&M, and Vandy; they don't even have one quality non-SEC opponent.

Alabama = Virginia Tech, Colorado St, Georgia St, Chattanooga
Arkansas = Louisiana-Lafayette, Samford, Southern Miss, Rutgers
Auburn = Washington St, Arkansas St, Western Carolina, Florida Atlantic
Florida = Toledo, Miami, Georgia Southern, Florida State
Georgia = Clemson, North Texas, Appy St, Georgia Tech
Kentucky = Western Kentucky, Miami(OH), Louisville, Alabama St
LSU = TCU, UAB, Kent St, Furman
Ole Miss = SE Missouri, Texas, Idaho, Troy
Mississippi State = Oklahoma St, Alcorn St, Troy, Bowling Green
Missouri = Murray St, Toledo, Indiana, Arkansas St
S. Carolina = N. Carolina, UCF, Coastal Carolina, Clemson
Texas A&M = Rice, Sam Houston St, SMU, UTEP
Vanderbilt = Austin Peay, UMass, UAB, Wake Forest

You're truly an idiot, no matter what your name du jour happens to be.

Written on UT's Jarnell Stokes scores 12 for Team USA:

in response to johnlg00:

I was a little puzzled by him playing only 11 minutes. I thought he was starting; if so, that's not much run. Of course, they did win by almost 60, so maybe the starters sat most of the game.

I join some others on here in wishing Jarnell had gone to a big-man camp instead of playing on the National Junior Team. He has already made as much of a positive impression on the USA Basketball folks as he is ever likely to make. I just don't think his game is as advanced as he seems to think it is, judging by some of his quotes.

He just must develop a go-to move in the post that gets a score darn near every time. Any player with his size and strength should have a whole series of moves for every spot from block to block that will get him a score on almost anybody, but merely perfecting the half-hook over the left shoulder from the right block--that one shot alone executed at 70%--would make a HUGE difference in his confidence and efficiency.

Height is NOT the issue for a player who knows how to work his feet and explode on the right path. That and a decent mid-range jumper will go a long way toward getting him where he says he wants to go. IMHO, he would be more likely to perfect those things at a big-man camp than he would playing with a "pick-up" international team.

yes sir

Written on UT's Jarnell Stokes scores 12 for Team USA:

I agree, and did read the article. We are talking about a anchor in our post next year. The only way you get better is to play better competition. He gets no better over seas. Needs to be putting in work learning some hooks and mid range and such. Better footwork and ball skills. He gets eatin alive against next level. They got China next, big comp there...

Written on Tennessee leaves door open for Marlin Lane's possible return:

in response to pcorange:

Here we go with the idiotic comments. We don't know why Lane is off the team, but it sounds like a door is open if he wants to do what he needs to do. Dooley's record had nothing to do with the talent on the field. He had no idea how to make halftime or gametime adjustments, that is why he had a losing record.

Written on Butch Jones says of event countering Nick Saban: 'I'll do anything in Tennessee':

in response to Geofffourmyle:

Only problem with your statement is that Nick Saban is a very poor representative for college football.

The guy is more ethically challenged than Richard Nixon.

Wow, that dates me. How about a comparison with our national sociopath George W. Bush?

Quoting the very very average Johnny Majors is the cherry on top demolishing your argument.

Written on Poll: How would you rate Tennessee's 2013 signing class?:

in response to ElizabethtonvolnNC:

Given all of the circumstances surrounding this program and it's current state, the fanbase included I would rate it an A. Why? Averaging the three most "trusted" recruiting services would amount to 26th in the nation. As CBJ stated many times in the presser, this staff had 31 days and limited contact to make an impact. I don't want to hear about Auburn OR Ole Miss. How did Arkansas do? 2 years ago Auburn won a national champiionship, and the coaches they hired, all came from the SE. Our former Head Coach as constantly lamented by the legions, allowed for the deterioration of relationships in the high schools and the prospects they should have been recruiting. CBJ, at the eleven and half hour, at least was able to attract the interest of some 5* rated talent and kept some guessing until national signing day. This on top of coming into new territory, with a broken program, 4 coaching changes since 2008, no bowls in the last two years and consecutive losing seasons to go with it made the task that much more difficult. If half the the legions would realize that we are never going to get back to where we want to be unless we are all in, all the time and that others feel the excitement or negativity within a fanbase, and it's program. Otherwise you might as well go root for Bama or Vandy. Go VOLS and GO CBJ.

fantastic
