Which basketball coach would you most like to see Tennessee hire? >>
Come on guys, something DOES stink down there in Oxford! Im sorry, there is no freakin way that POS school can get a class like that out of the blue the way they did. Somethings gotta give here. Its TOO fishy!
Those losses to Georgetown, UVA and Okie State really hurt. If we could have taken 2 of those games, there would be no worrying.
Look at you "strawberries & champagne" fans...celebrating a road win in the regular season against the worst team in the SEC. You guys just keep on backing Martin...you love mediocrity!
Ive never seen such a bunch of bumbling, stumbling clowns in my life! This has to be the stupidest team Ive ever followed. No strategy. No heart. No emotions from Martin. He knows hes a dead man walking. We dont have time for another year with this idiot...DO THE RIGHT THING HART AND CUT YOUR LOSSES WITH THIS FOOL AFTER THIS SEASON...NOT NEXT...THIS SEASON...NOT NEXT!!!! The trash hires by Hamilton have filled up a dumpster. Save room for Cuonzo and then carry that dumpster off into the sunset...please!!
FOR THE LOVE OF GOD PLEASE FIRE CUONZO MARTIN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

"UT came undone in the closing moments".
THIS STATEMENT SUMS UP OUR COACH, TEAM AND PROGRAM.
FIRE CUONZO MARTIN..ITS NOOOOOT WORKING!!!!!
Richardson's choke airball sums up our bball team in a nutshell. When under pressure and blessed with a golden opportunity to win try and win the game, not only does he airball the first, but also misses the 2nd. PATHETIC WEAK BUNCH OF TULIPS!!!
This bunch of soft tulips will stay in the game for the most part of it, then the wheels will fall off as usual. Martin CANNOT coach! This team already knows its going to lose just on the mere fact that they are going to play in Rupp Arena. A loss is already in their mind, dont be fooled. A good team would probably lose tonight. This team is atrocious and will end up getting embarrassed. I hope Im wrong, but Ive been following this program for too long now and know how they crumble.
HONOR THY VOLS...CHERISH THEM...
"I think somewhere inside him, he hasn't said it this way, he tries to avoid maybe getting fouled because he's not a great free-throw shooter and that's something he spends a lot of time on," Martin said.
NOOOOO...HE AVOIDS GETTING FOULED BECAUSE HES SOFT JUST LIKE THE REST OF THESE TULIPS!!!!
This team is EXCRUCIATING to watch! Bama lost to Mercer...MERCER!! This team is a bunch of soft tulips. Do the right thing Hart and fire Martin after this season. He is NOT the answer. Nothing ever changes. "We need to start doing this...we need to start doing that". WELL FREAKIN DO IT THEN!!! Lets swallow our pride and bring back the messiah of UT basketball known as Bruce Pearl!
Martin is weak and soft...hes a tulip just like this team.
HONOR THY VOLS...CHERISH THEM....
Good bye! I can see why Alabama dogged this guy. He played SOFT..nothing special AT ALL. Just one of the many underachievers of this once proud program..nothing new.
Cuonzo Martin is just not getting it done, and should be fired if this disaster continues. Im sorry, there is NO EXCUSE for this team underachieving the way they are. If this exact same team was coached by Beheim, Calhoun, Pearl, Calapari, etc..theyd be a top 20 team.
Im beginning to really not like Martin. He showed no emotion on the bench last night..was there. This coach is soft and so is this team..bunch of tulips!
All I know is that I am starting to wonder if Coach Martin is the right guy for this guy as each game passes. Our offense has no identity and there is no strategy at all! Martin is slowly crawling into my ch ithouse and am wavering towards him being fired. If we do not make the NCAA tourney think that is exactly what needs to happen, Im sorry.
While very disappointed that we didnt get a home run hire, I am going to be open-minded about this and give CBJ my full support and love. Its out of my control so I need to just accept it and be proud to have him. AT LEAST HE WANTED TO BE HERE!
So, heres a toast to you CBJ, welcome to UT and best of luck! Lets give all the haters a big ol ch itburger!!
Hart BETTER have an ace up his sleeve! Petrino, Davis, Tressel or Gruden...bring in one of those guys Dave Hart and aaaaaaaaall is forgotten!
HONOR THY VOLS..CHERISH THEM...
FIRE CUONZO MARTIN!!!!
Who cares if he decides to leave in 3-5 years! If he leaves us and we are back to being a top 5-10 program, we will just get another big name coach and continue to win!! We need INSTANT RESULTS PEOPLE...INSTANT!!
Exlineman, tell me what he said that was so bad? lol He said he was a coach in over his head just like Dooley was. The truth hurts..quit being so damn soft and hanging with those spray-painting soccer Moms.
Sorry, but there is no way in he ll that Tyler Bray is better than Casey Clausen and Erik Ainge..not even close bud!!
So what if Glenn whoever called him Doofus Dooloser..thats HIS ENTITLEMENT AND OPINION!! Remember freedom of speech people?? Well, hes speaking his mind and if that is what he wants to call him, than let him. I have called him that numerous times and still feel the same way. He was a total clown and when he talked, I wanted to bash his face in!!
Why are these players crying over that idiot? They act like God himself was fired and its the end of the world! Tell me Byron, what did Dooley say to you guys every Monday morning? There couldnt have been one word he said that was going to help make you successful on Saturday!! ...and please..Chaney..dont you dare say Dooley is "a good coach and that will always be the case." ARE YOU FREAKIN KIDDING ME? HES THE WORST DIV 1 COACH EVER....EVEEEEER!!
This clown makes a reference to a bubble gum card lol Every time he tries to be witty or cute it just makes me want to bash his freakin face in!! Uhhhh duuuuhh...duuum deee Dooley!!
Good question! What the heck HAS happened to Waggner?! He was an All SEC 2nd teamer with possible NFL aspirations after the 2010 season. Why is he so irrelevant anymore? Its like he isnt even on the team anymore. Very disturbing...
Best article Adams has ever written..the truth hurts people!!
"We go cover 2 and they did this to us...we go to a cover 3 with 1 under and they do that to us"...uhhhh duuuh duum deeee duuuuum Dooleave at his best! What a sorry excuse for a coach!!
Its like Geowge weeding Lenny...TEND DOSE WABBITS LENNY!!
"Probably the most truthful article Adams has ever written while talking of UT football."
Wow, I was going to write the exact same thing man lol I think its Adam's best article EVER. The truth hurts people.....
Derek Dooley is "successful"?? HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA!!
Justin Coleman has been a HUGE disappointment for this defense. This kid had "stud" written all over him when we recruited him. Same goes for Byron Moore..we snagged him from Miami (FL) and was a highly touted JUCO. This guy looks lost out there!!! Marsalis Teague...hell..dont even get me started there. Most glaringly, WHERE IS PRENTISS WAGNER BEEN ALL YEAR??!! He was our best D player and has totally been irrelevant this year! Why? Hell, I almost forgot he was on our team!
The fact here folks is that this defense, epecially the secondary, should NOT be this horrific. I personally think they are either underachievers or the coaches cant coach up the talent once they get here.
Again...its like Geowge leading Lenny..TEND DOSE WABBITS COACHES!
Rememberwhen..my man...couldnt have said it any better myself! I cant believe how much Kiffin was hated. That man had TN back on the map! WE WERE THE MOST TALKED ABOUT 5-7 TEAM IN THE COUNTRY..IN HISTORY!! If he never bolted on us, I GUARANTEE you he would have had us winning 10-11 games a season by now. Hell, I guarantee you that Lane Kiffin would finish 9-3 with THIS EXACT TEAM that Dooldoofus has IN 2012!!
usafvol is probably one of the soccer Moms that went over to the rock and spray painted pictures of rainbows, smiley faces and flower pedals over the "Fire Dooley" remarks lol
God our fanbase is soft...
I hope these rumors dont annoy the family to the point where he doesnt want to come here! We need to play the quiet small guy...ya know..the leper. In other words, STOP ACTING SO DESPERATE!
Here come the sorry excuses already! Its like they know exactly how to soften the blow before it even happens. Well done Doolittle..you've rubbed off on Sal! YOU ARENT GOING TO DO A DAM N THING TO HELP THIS TEAM ON SATURDAY SAL!!!! Like I said, its like George leading Lenny...HEY SAL, HAVE FUN TENDIN DOSE WABBITS NEXT YEAR!!
We shouldnt even have to worry about our starting RB playing in this kind of game...its TROY....TROY!!! We should be able to beat this team with no RB in the game and with one of Tyler Brays arms tied behind his back!
Source: Casey "Was better than Manning" Clausen!!
Come on bro, you know dam n well that team quit during that Wyoming game because of Fulmer's firing! Yeah, we had a bad year..lost to UCLA...lost to a horrible Auburn team, etc...but do you REALLY think we would have lost to Wyoming at home if Fulmer didnt get fired?? Get real!
How are fans from the state of TN embarrassing?! Its called DEMANDING MORE FROM A TOP 10 PROGRAM OF ALL TIME...WAKE UP!! This fanbase is softer than charmin..always has been..its pathetic! Its like you're afraid to ask for a second helping off the dinner table! Nahh..one is enough even though Im still hungry and want more. You Doolaid drinkers are the embarrassment..
So let me get this straight Doolaid drinkers...You are NOT a real, TRUE Vol fan if you do not like being the laughing stock of the SEC? So, you're pretty much saying being content with losing makes you more of a true Vols fan? Do you know how insane you Dooley lovers sound?? lol
pcshowtime..my man...couldnt have said it any better myself!! See folks, HE gets it! Why cant the rest of you Doolaid lovers??!
Exlineman, I meant no disrespect..really didnt. I just saw numerous posts from you continuing to coddle and make excuses for this team and coaching staff. We just dont see eye to eye..most of us on here don't!
Wow..a leader being a leader..our team wouldnt know anything about that....
Exlineman, you are just one of the reasons this program has declined...YOU ACCEPT MEDIOCRITY AND PAMPER THESE PLAYERS AND COACHES!! You are soft, Im sorry. Im sure you were with the other soccer Moms spray painting joyous pictures of rainbows and smiley faces on the rock. Grow a pair dude..
With this coach and team, its like George trying to lead Lenny...
This is from collegefootbalnews.com's predictions..
What Will Happen: Will the return of Marcus Lattimore be enough to jump start the struggling Gamecocks? He ran for 184 yards and two scores in the win two years ago, and he’ll get his yards this week – it won’t be enough. Bray will get hot early and will keep up the pace even when South Carolina has a little bit of momentum. This will be Tennessee’s moment with Bray coming up with a strong enough performance to life the team to a key upset win.
CFN Prediction: Tennessee 27 … South Carolina 24 ATS Consultants Line (Click for more lines and picks) South Carolina -14 O/U: 56.5 Must Watch Rating (5 – The Girl, 1 – Don’t Trust The B In Apt. 23): 3.5
THESE GUYS ARE USUALLY RIGHT!! LOL
KremserWallop...my man..tells it like it is!
Whoever said Gruden to the Lions made me laugh..Im from and live in Detroit suburbs. Our boy Jimmy Schwartz isnt on the hot seat YET! But, a couple more ugly losses and look out!
Wow, Hunter's attitude is really, really disheartening. I didnt think this guy would ever display such an infantile demeanor. He tweeted "Im done" and "I thought we were family" in response to Dooley's criticism lol
WHHHHHAAAAAAAH....WHHHAAAAA..CRY ME A RIVER JUSTIN!!!
But Hunter said that assessment isn't entirely fair. The dropped passes have been so magnified that they obscure the fact that he's having, in his own words, a "pretty good" year.
"Everybody expects you to catch every pass, even the hard ones and the ones that go out of bounds," Hunter said. "I think I've been doing everything mostly right on the field but one drop is what everybody is going to look at."
This is the problem with this program!! No accountability...always a lame excuse...defiant attitudes...no blame, etc..
You guys ever notice that our players call other players formally by their last names. I tell Bray this and that. Why isnt it Tyler..or Ty for short. No chemistry at all..terrible!
He never said one bad thing about Detroit again...
"I don't think it's fair. We're all in this together," he said. "People are going to talk, but our job is do what we're asked to do and win games."
Yeah, but you dont win!! lol Im sorry, say all you want, this team has quit on Dooleave.
