Written on SEC won't suspend Alabama's Dial for hit on Murray:

If Tennessee hit someone like that they would give another year of probation to us.

Written on John Adams: Vols might have found a 'yes' man :


Not true. You can tell this by his first year at each school. He went quickly from a losing record in his first year to winning a lot of games his second and third years. If he just inherited the talent, there would not have been a drop-off after the initial coaches left.

Yea, Sunseri inherited talent too.

Written on John Adams: Vols might have found a 'yes' man :

He's got a winning record.... With all the recruits he didn't recruit. Better coach than Dooley, but not by much. He is going to have to really win fans over. Sad thing is it won't take long to have fans wanting him gone.

Written on Who was Tennessee's MVP this season? :

Zero votes for Hunter. Sad

Written on UT's offseason off to troubled start with Downs' arrest:

Love how people bash football players like they don't have lives... Everyone in this forum drank under age when they were younger.

Written on Tennessee-Vanderbilt Report Card :

Coaching a "D" Really? the fake punt alone should deserve an "F" alone.

Written on Notebook: Cordarrelle Patterson draws taunting flags for second week in a row :

He is basically saying I can taunt because I am the only good thing on this team. So much talent.

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

in response to Orangeblood13:

Gona have to do better than this

Did you watch the game?

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

They are monsters down low.

Written on UT linebacker Curt Maggitt may be out for rest of the season :

Curt is the BIG bright spot on this defense.

Written on David Climer: Derek Dooley's time is up for Tennessee Vols:

I want Charlie Strong more than any coach out there. He wins everywhere he goes and players love him. He is like a Cuonzo type leader.

Written on Letter: Another South Carolina fan praises UT for response to Marcus Lattimore's injury:

in response to usafvol:

After continually reading all the negative posts that our "fans" put on here I'll say it again: we have the WORST fan base there is. Not only do our fans continually bash Dooley and the team, they have to complain about a compliment. Some of you people really need to get a life. If all you can do is complain, it must really suck to be you!


Written on Mike Strange: UT offensive line coach Sam Pittman navigating SEC defenses :

Pittman is legit! we have to keep this guy! everyone on our line will be playing on Sundays

Written on Rajion Neal not 100 percent, but could play Saturday:

in response to jobrando#216494:

Surely he want be needed for TROY.
VOLS 62 Troy 3 (it should be the score)

Vols 51 Troy 48

Written on Lattimore goes to hospital with likely knee injury:

Man I hope he will be able to play again one day.

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

in response to orange_eVOLution:

Sam Pittman (OL) and Jay Graham (RB) are legit, very good coaches.

Most legit post i've seen on here.

Written on Tennessee's 2013 football schedule released:

if this team stays together it will be good next year. very good

Written on Frustration mounts after UT misses another chance to 'get over the hump' :

I was there and the tackling was terrible! We have no leader to lead us in a crucial moment. Our offensive line is amazing. Our defense is a laughing stock. Patterson is in a league above everyone else and Miss State is a middle of the pack team. ( oh and p.s a State fan told me that he thinks they can run the table and go to the NC game. Wake up bro!)

Written on Jay Graham says Tennessee's Rajion Neal 'more consistent' since opener :

Vols don't do well against running QBs.. and Murray can run.. thats a fact. Go Vols

Written on Tweet raises questions, but most expect Bacarri Rambo and Alec Ogletree to return Saturday :

It seems the week any team plays UT their injured or suspended players come back.

Written on Derek Dooley finds few flaws with Georgia:

in response to brauhuff#295403:

Come on Tennessee fans DD needs this year and next them if nothing has changed find a new coach. If he is fired this year he will not have been given a fair chance.

smoking much?

Written on Tennessee's Tyler Bray tried to plead his case on key intentional grounding call :

we have 587348734 WRs put one in ... seriously. Depth killed us last year and we have more of it this year and we don't use it.

Written on Govols247: Vols 'still up there' for Derrick Green :

No BIG name high school player wants to come to a program which has a chance to be un stable again... thats a fact guys.

Written on SEC names Florida QB Jeff Driskel offensive player of the week:

This team is perfectly fine people. You act like it's the end of the World. Dooley is doing fine at coaching. We are making HUGE improvements over last year. Its not 98 anymore people, stop living in the 90s its a new era in football. The Tides will turn and we will be dominant again one day. It all comes in cycles. Why do you think so many people hate us? because we used to be so dominant and the other teams weren't. Now it has flipped. We will be back its just going to take time.

Written on Poll: How would you grade Tennessee's performance against Florida?:

Is there not a giving up poll?

Written on Evan's Eleven: Will Vols' offense overpower Florida's front 7? :

Should be a very close game.. It could go either way.. Lets hope the Orange way.

Written on Gators without LB Jelani Jenkins, CB Cody Riggs for Vols:

in response to SummittsCourt:

I see Tyler Bray throwing 45-50 times for 330+ and 3-4 TD's - in the first half.

This is not a Georgia State defense

Written on Quenshaun Watson among 7 Tennessee true freshmen to make debut :

Watson was fast, really fast. get him in the open with the ball.

Written on After victory, Tennessee looks to clean up flaws for Week 2 :

We didn't use half of our offensive power in that game.. it will be fun to watch when they unload their offense and all the players.

Written on After victory, Tennessee looks to clean up flaws for Week 2 :

in response to mdvol:

No more losing...
No more moral victories.
It's time to play with the big boys.

4 years of pent up frustration all comes out on the Gators.

Who better?

Pandemonium Reigns - Sept 15th - Knoxville

VOLS hang 65 on Georgia State. Then drop 40 on the Gators in Neyland.
Start 4-0.

Gators have an excellent defense... 40 is going to be tough.

Written on Big game, plays: Vols beat N.C. State, 35-21 :

in response to eduardo:

Dooley=Disaster what a cluster#@!%..still cant run the ball when we want to. 20 yd fg are you serious??

Jump off a cliff! we have a lot to work on, but we looked good in a lot of areas. GO VOLS

Written on N.C. State's plans for big year start with Tennessee:

I keep hearing about this all mighty Safety N.C State has... One guy can't cover a whole offense. just saying.

Written on Marsalis Teague gets a fresh start with new UT cornerbacks coach:

in response to rockytopwestone:

Frist of all you are incorrect. Marsalis Teague has covered and broken up many passes during his time on defence as a Vol. Secondly your "speed" would have been decreased if you had suffered from turftoe for over a year.

I am not incorrect. I am talking about getting beat long every game not breaking up passes.. he is toooo slow. watch the film my friend. Has he had turf toe for 3 years?

Written on Marsalis Teague gets a fresh start with new UT cornerbacks coach:

I love Teague, but the man gets beat evey game all game.. too slow. #VFL .. Good luck friend

Written on Vols' offense has Jim Chaney smiling :

Why do people waste their time signing up for this forum the hate UT? I will never understand... sucks to be them I guess

Written on Steve Spurrier hopes Vols beat 'a bunch' of people :

Vols will compete with everyone this year. I don't believe they will be a push over team.

Why is he rated so low on Rivals?

Written on Justin Coleman part of position battles :

Love reading the word battle! means Depth. Boom!

Written on UT commitment Camion Patrick will not play football for Lenoir City:

Hope this doesn't transfer over to Tennessee and become a problem.

Written on Marlon Walls on board with new defense, attitude :

in response to JCJ1986:

Eh, I wouldn't hold my breath. Henry is elite talent. With this current coach and staff there's probably a two star back in rural Georgia somewhere with an FIU, WKU, UNT, and Tennessee offer who's ready to 'get on board.'

Written on Marlon Walls on board with new defense, attitude :

Derrick Henry is about to Commit to the Vols

Written on Dyer dismissed from Arkansas State team:

Derrick Henry is about to commit to the Vols

Written on Tyler Bray named to Walter camp watch list :

I dont like all the hype.

Written on UT vs. Florida: First time not on CBS since 1995 :

I am not saying this because I am a Vol fan but if we stay healthy I really dont know who can stop our offense this year. Bray,Hunter, Rogers, Patterson, Rivera and our defense will of coarse improve over that train wreck from last year. We can doubt Dooleys coaching but the man can recruit well.
