Written on Vols' scholarship roster has 19 seniors, but still plenty of questions entering 2013:

The real numbers there that mean anything is the 19 sr. And 20 jrs....This is good for any program and yes there have been coaching changes....But the ones that are starters is one thing...but the ones who get a fresh start with new coaches and schemes will provide well needed starters OR DEPTH...!!! This season rides on Qb play....turnovers....!!! Defense getting off the field...injuries to key player in the back seven on the D...!!! You win on the line of scrimmage and we have good depth on both....With a senior laden FRONTS.....GO VOLS......VFL

in response to tnvolfan16:

Finally, someone in the media in town has spoken the absolute truth. Not that Coach Fulmer did not have his day, but just because he had his day ten years earlier does not mean he gets a job for life. You may like Coach Fulmer, but you cannot deny anything said in this article.

You got to know more about what goes into the sport then what you actually think that YOU MIGHT KNOW!!! You can't lose top recruiters and your second hand man and not expect a drop off. We let Majors run the sidelines longer than anyone should've had the chance...! With record that he had and the man behind don't get me started I'm not gonna get into this BS like politics...!!!! I was a dreamer like most was with Majors and grew up loving the legend....Not understanding the game of football makes people look like idiots......Soooooooooooo continue on IDIOTS

Just as lame are you troll feeders who gratify these sociopaths by re-posting their crapola and adding your nauseating simpleton retorts. The KNS, John Adams riding the lead parade float, is harming UTs recruiting by creating an environment for negativity regarding the Big Orange. Mr. Kaplan, tell your boys to get off their lazy butts and edit out all these miscreants!

Hang in there big guy

Written on Mike Strange: Phillip Fulmer: SEC dominance began before seven-year title run:

in response to MR_VOL:

I am in full agreement.

I was at that game, and I can honestly say it was the absolute worst coached UT football game I have ever seen. The team certainly was not prepared and had only two offensive plays being “pound that rock” and “hail-mary.” “Third and Chavis” could not, would not, or simply did not know how to make an adjustment while “7 Points Sanders” [and Fulmer] tried and tried to pound that rock, but unfortunately on that night ran into a rock that simply would not bust.

I honestly believe UT [coaches and players] felt by simply showing up, LSU would just roll over and surrender. There was as much disbelief in the coaches eyes as in the players eyes. Once the game was over, you could cut the disappointment with a knife.

If I had to specifically pin-point the exact time when UT football started to decline, I would, without hesitation, say this game.

You got to be kidding me....! This is the SEC....! If you know it....Then you know it well...! Playing that emotional game in Gainesville was like playing for and winning the SEC championship....! Then actually go and play the following weekend in the game against a team you had beaten earlier in the year.....This is the SEC....Beating an SEC opponent twice in the same year AND for the Title.....Come ON....! Yes I was also disappointed BUT I also wasn't surprised by the lost....AND I don't care what happened in the game....IT IS WHAT IT IS...! The SEC and College Football...You got to be Kidding...!!!

Written on Mike Strange: Phillip Fulmer: SEC dominance began before seven-year title run:

in response to MR_VOL:

Walt, you said it yourself and I could not agree more, no adjustments made. In my world, no adjustments is no coaching. And as the head coach, it is your duty to keep the team pointed in a forward direction regardless of an emotional win [or loss] the previous week.

BS.....Sounds like to me since you seem to know sooooo much that you should've been the Head Coach Mr Vol.....And I'm sure you could've been the second most winningest coach in UTs history......Side NOTE....The most winningest TEAM in The Modern Day History of College Football....!!! Tennessee....!!!

Written on Mike Strange: Phillip Fulmer: SEC dominance began before seven-year title run:

in response to BruisedOrange:

Comment on the PAST:
The 2001 loss to LSU illustrates how critical game-planning is in top tier college football. We had more talent and experience than LSU, but we were prepared to beat their starters.

After they lost their starting QB Davey--AND running back (Toefield?)--in the first half... they were no longer the team our guys had game-planned for.

It's ironic. If LSU's starting RB had remained in the game, they would have had Mauck handing off to him instead of running himself, and we would have won.

Comment on the FUTURE:
According to the article "Fulmer hopes athletic director Dave Hart is addressing some of the institutional issues that likely contributed to UT’s decline."

"Hopes... is" indicates he doesn't know if Hart is or not. Which means all these changes we've been reading about are evidently NOT (in Fulmer's mind) the critical ones.

I think that's the real news in this article.

Hit it right on the nails head....You nailed IT...! We need more UT fans like yourself....Well DONE

Written on UTC to announce David Blackburn as new athletic director:

in response to iowa_vol:

Congratulations David. Hope to have you back on The Hill after Dave Hart retires. This is a position well earned.

Absolutely agree with you....also coach Fulmer made a great hire no doubt....! I will miss him.....but he will be hear in my hometown....If your right and he comes back as the AD....Then that will be a great story....!

DaveanaTurD....! You don't have a clue what this means....!

Coming south from Knoxville it's facing you from the north bound side and I think it's sitting at a angle where it can be seen from both sides.....Hey Turd recruiting is the life line of a college football program and were in a critical point in UT sports program as A College....! Period...! I will say this again people if you think that a poster or billboard of our Coach or UT sports would ever be seen in the state of Alaloooooserville....Wrong....! Will NEVER happen wake up people....I will Never Ever buy anything to do with Mayfield ice cream or go in or to Athens,TN....Matter of fact I was seriously thinking over the winter in checking out the tour to the Mayfield plant.....Guess what???

I assume saban wont be talking about his great team,etc, but rather other topics.
If so, what's the beef.
Also, having Coach Jones speak nearby is fine too, part of me thinks it is good natured competition, nothing wrong with it, Im sure the coaches and schools keep it all in perspective, no need for folks to get crazy,

Then you don't know anything about recruiting....sorry but true....This is the SEC....This is Bama....This wouldn't be allowed in loooooserville....!!! We have got to stop being soooo dam polite and nice....! Bottom line this would NEVER happen on there soil....!

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

in response to rtrchatt:

Refering to Coach as "Satan" shows your true colors skippy. I guess you have no idea who Satan truly is. Coach Saban could go anywhere in the US and draw this type of crowd because his message of success applies to all walks of life. Only Vol fans see this a some type of recruiting coup and off field competition. UT is nothing more than a gnat on the butt of an
elephant to Alabama/CNS. You boys will do ANYTHING to talk about how good you will be but the numbres do not lie.... 28 wins last 5 yrs, Bama 61 wins last 5 yrs, 6 in a row by an average of 24 pts and Oct 23 will be no different. Roll Tide Knox County and the Bama Nation everywhere, Happy Easter.

You're an usual when it comes from Alaloooosers fans.....! I tell you what the next time we win the national title....Let's see a billboard go up on I20/59 in TuscaloooooserVille.....! In the springtime during crucial visits to get them interested in what you're trying to accomplish.....! Get real D.A.....

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

in response to dragon18:

I'm going to disagree with you on this one. I drove to Chattanooga on business Monday and saw the Billboard in question. It is really in your face Alabama and the speaking event gets lost in the giant picture of Saban and the giant Alabama logo. Keep in mind that ANY RECRUIT driving from Knoxville to Georgia, or to Florida or to Alabama must pass this billboard. It's a pretty snarky thing to do. If the Athens Chamber authorized that billboard it should have been clear to them as it was to me that the layout was not about the speaking engagement but more about Alabama and Nick Saban. I'm just sayin'...

You are dead on it....! This is what I stated earlier....Recruiting from the South comes straight up I75.....!!! Get Real People This DOES MATTER....!!!

in response to cheetah-vol:

I don't live near or have seen the billboard, but I hope they take it down before somebody does something stupid to it and things get really ugly. It's justifiable to feel angry about this event, but CBJ is rising above it. We should, too. Stay classy Vol fans.

The problem is that the billboard has been up for awhile now....I wonder how long it stays up afterwards...??? Im gonna say it stays up guys think this is fine then go try sticking one up in alaloooosers state...There is nothing classy about recruiting in this conference....! Staying classy in this conference.....gets you drilled....! You lose....VFL GBO

Athens Tennessee does NOT ROCK if you're a Tennessee Vol!

Vols don't need that kind of "loyalty"...what a bunch of ill-conceived ideas from the Athens Chamber. They really should explain & apologize to Coach Butch Jones & his staff for inviting Saban to recruit. Pitiful!

I think they already have...That's why CBJ is speaking before Satan...! But it's to late and they need to pay...! Inviting him is one thing....the billboards of SATAN and him holding the crystall ball out on the interstate that the recruits coming up here during spring practice and trying to get recruits is BS.....!!! Wake up people this is very big...!!!

Pretty classless move by the Athens Chamber. I know Jones will handle this with class; timing is terrible.

I agree and you are correct...The timing is bad...BUT the billboard is something they should be ashamed of....! I don't care how many fans they have in the area...This is Tennessee not Alabama....Do you think that they would ever allow a UT Coach and the crystall ball on a billboard in there Lousy state??? NEVER

I eat out every day on the road....NOW.....!!! Here is what really pisses me OFF....! They have put up a billboard on the interstate with a pic of SATAN and him holding the crystal ball....!!! Do you think in the state of AlaLooooooSerS.....!!! Would they or anyone in that state be willing to put up a billboard of our coach holding the crystall ball...??? EVER...?!!! NO...WAY...! Get real people this isn't something to take lightly....Why do you think that CBJ is NOW gonna speak before SATAN...!....IF you want them and the rest off the state to wake up....Then you show them as fans...! Fans don't have to be diplomatic and polite...!!! That's the difference right now in our program and with our counterparts...We have got to stop being so polite and nice....We have the best fans out there but sometimes you got to say enough is enough....!!!

in response to brandon4au:

Unfortunately, my first post on this sight will be a response to your stupid comment. With that said, what exactly was the outcome for the last TWO meetings between Auburn and Tennessee? I seem to remember Tennessee coming into Jordan Hare and only scoring 7 points against a team that would finish 5-7 and fire its coach in 2008. I also remember Gene Chizik...yes, Gene Chizik...bringing a mediocre Auburn team into Neyland Stadium in 2009 that proceeded to systematically kick Tennessee up and down the field for the majority of a game that was so boring that my wife and I decided to go into another room and conceive our almost-three-year-old-son. Tennessee and Auburn are going through coaching transitions, but there is SO much more talent at Auburn than UT, talent coached by someone with a 2 year old national championship ring on his hand. The point is, while Auburn is indeed not back at the top of the mountaintop yet, don't try to ever compare Auburn with Vanderbilt and UK while trying to count your "sure wins". If Auburn doesn't walk out of a 3/4 empty Neyland Stadium and win by 3 TD's, I'll actually be surprised. The losing at Auburn lasted for one season and was corrected. Losing has become "business as usual" for Tennessee over the past 6 years. Looking down your noses at Auburn won't change that...

No wonder your precious little trees have been poisoned....! The BS flying from your mouth only deserves the shiart that only true Alabammers conceive....! Sooooo with that said the whole state of AlaLosserS deserve one another...! When the NCAA comes to your door...Look our way because we will be smiling at your BS....! :-)
