Patrick Willis was in 1a as I'm sure many other greats... your comment & negativity during a time of such excitement shows what type of person you are... EVERY report on Butch Jones is good so far... did you NOT want him to go after a talented in statekid?

hmmm... you listed 5 teams.. yet you said win one in four.. your welcome - correction police

Written on John Adams: Vols should be California dreaming in football:

in response to tturley#297658:

Kevin Burnett, Kevin Simon, Sperminator, and Arian Foster were other Californians of note... We need a direct flight from Knoxville to California though, that would help cut down the travel time for recruits' families to come and watch them play.

With all due respect, Arian Foster is from New Mexico..

Written on Tyler Bray to participate in Gruden QB Camp:

bray is a bust... book it.. best thing that could happen to him is going undrafted... would maybe wake him up from la la land

Written on VOLympics Team Rosters:

in response to AllVol1:

Interesting to see that the kickers were all drafted last on their respective teams. What does that say about them?

Only the first round was a "true draft".... after that it was by position.. so all kickers would be grouped together... like other position are.. idea for this is to not hurt feelings or bring negativity...

Jones did it at Cincy

Go Vols

Listen i despise dooley and am 100% behind butch.... REGARDLESS, Dooley did the same thing last year... jones just added a couple things... yea jones did it in cincy, BUT why would you speak about what you dont know... Dooley did it last year... basically the exact same thing, except didnt involve media....

Written on UT's Graham 'rehired' quickly by Jones:

Gotta love jay Graham. He has represented himself and UT right. Feels good to have a former player who is also a great coach on our staff. Next let's hire peyton to coach QB's in 2016-2017

Written on UT's Graham 'rehired' quickly by Jones:

in response to BrassMonkey:

Post it on Twitter! We have the 5th best Twitter coach in the nation. Woo hoo! Who cares about wins and losses we are winning on Twitter. That is where the game is played in 2013.

I thought it was 3rd? -- there is no way to tell how good butch jones will be. We now have a staff that has been together and believes in each other enough to come together and stayed together. Now is not the time of year for negativity fool... give them a chance and hope it works out cuz he is killing it off the field

Best article ever by JA, I think announcing the season ticket holders would be a bore for anyone who is not, but the rest of the ideas sound great

agreed

Written on John Adams: Fan mail contradicts negative posts :

wat the **** is wrong with the positive posts here . obviously taking jabs at tennessee to get a reaction . one thing john is bad wrong about is the hiding behind a computer with no name... id love to adress john adams in person

Written on Report: Tyler Bray to enter the NFL draft :

in response to Show-me-your-TDs:

It seems that we are basically both on the same page....
except for the media thing...they have been wrong several times this year, especially here lately

yea thats cool.. not trying to get in on your beef with someone else.. i just saw where you called other guy a fool for something about bray.. i just was trying to throw in that I can understand both sides of the argument on bray.. he has major ups and major red flags... its like dating the extremely hot girl thats a coke head.

Written on Report: Tyler Bray to enter the NFL draft :

in response to Show-me-your-TDs:

You are a fool

Bray had a couple bad games ...but the defence lost most of the games this year....You got to be smarter than that....Bray is a heck of a talent and will be missed

heck of a talent is true. he will be missed true.. defense lost most of the games true... thing about bray is he was anything but clutch, he did play poorly in several games where if he came through in clutch we could have won.. ex: FLorida, GA, SC, Vandy, last year KY.. thats 5 SEC wins in his last 8 or 9 where he didnt come through in clutch, or just played poorly. Extremly high ceiling for Bray is a no brainer.. but its his ceiling that has a problem.. he is not a bright kid. Thats been told in media.. thats apparent in some of his actions.. and i choose to believe it.

Written on Recruiting job one for Tennessee coaches :

good group of guys. This isnt as big of names as we all wanted. but these guys are extremely genuine people.. good guys.. and obviously have created a family with each other as well as at programs they have been at.. if that translates to winning, then it could be huge.. time will tell.. you gotta love these guys personalities

Written on Report: Tyler Bray to enter the NFL draft :

look boys its like this... we got a top offensive line in country.. we got a strong front 7. ( hopefully our pass rush will improve cuz they arent built for that) we have some descent skill players on offense.. If we can get some good play calling and coach up our secondary, the sky isnt falling out next year.. we actually have a solid team.. doesnt look that way with what was on field last year, but that was bad coaching.. I know we will be better than last year.. how much better, who knows.. but i am gonna stay positive because our o line and d line and linebackers can play.. got good running backs.. we gonna be just fine.

Written on Report: Tyler Bray to enter the NFL draft :

in response to pcorange:

We had a heck of an offense this year. The running game, while improved over last year, was still subpar for the SEC. In games where your offense has scored in the 30 something and 40 something points, your QB shouldn't be blamed when you lose.

yea i agree, dont blame him for losing games... but i think our offense will be ok this year.. especially if we get a WR that can strectch the field.. gonna have a top Oline here that is gonna be the best we have had in a LONG time.. my concerns will again be on defense.. thats where games will be won and lost..

Written on Report: Tyler Bray to enter the NFL draft :

in response to VFLVFLVFL:

yea I think horrible reads is pretty accurate.. he threw alot of deep passes to his guys.. also his receivers had alot of YAC... in crunch time he not only played bad but he LOST us several games dating back to UNC in music city bowl.. but yea i wish he would come back.. he is a good talent.. but his reading of the defense is not near as good as some other quarterbacks we have had.. its easy to pass to our talented wide receivers.. he had some of the best in nation in all four years.. even jones was good on 3rd down as well as D moore being a home run threat.. But against GA, South carolina, and others he hurt us big time late in games.. he had 3 turnovers alone on our last 3 posessions to go ahead against GA.. big time players make big time plays at big time moments in big time games. he is a great talent, but im not gonna glorify him as best since Peyton

correction in his 3 years here, but you get where i stand on it.. great talent, but obviously not a smart quarterback.. and has been anything but clutch

Written on Report: Tyler Bray to enter the NFL draft :

in response to cloudodust:

Horrible reads..? Did you sleep through his time Atop Rocky or are you thinking he need not check down due to our (ahem) talent at WR..? I don't need to expound, but Bray had really good skills looking things over. At least, IMO

yea I think horrible reads is pretty accurate.. he threw alot of deep passes to his guys.. also his receivers had alot of YAC... in crunch time he not only played bad but he LOST us several games dating back to UNC in music city bowl.. but yea i wish he would come back.. he is a good talent.. but his reading of the defense is not near as good as some other quarterbacks we have had.. its easy to pass to our talented wide receivers.. he had some of the best in nation in all four years.. even jones was good on 3rd down as well as D moore being a home run threat..

Written on John Adams: Avoiding Oregon would be worse than losing to it:

I would like to see John Adams on the football field. Id knock this S**t out of him. Probably even pull out the Albert Haynesworth stomp in the end.

Written on Report: Tyler Bray to enter the NFL draft :

in response to pcorange:

Any Tennessee fan with a lick of sense knows that Tyler Bray is the best QB Tennessee has had in modern history other than Peyton Manning. It's a shame he had to be play his time here under a horrible head coach. I agree that he probably has some growing up to do, but it'll be a long time before we see that kind of talent here again.

Hmmm... raw talent??? yes... Doesnt always translate to wins. He does have a quick release and strong arm.. accuracy on short passes, horrible reads, and slow between the ears have been his problem.. I would have a hard time picking him over tee martin, or erik ainge.

Written on Report: Tyler Bray to enter the NFL draft :

To add to my previous post, not sure if 3 years is always the answer in every situation.. sometimes red flags go off in one season to say this isnt our guy... but as for this guy I find it hard to believe there is any worse than what Dooley and Sunseri did this year... ON and OFF the field.. the recruiting stories and former player interraction stories are terrible to hear.

Written on Report: Tyler Bray to enter the NFL draft :

in response to cjj14u:

So no Bray, Hunter, Rivera, Patterson?

You think THIS year was bad?

I can now see UK lambasting the Vols in Lexington next year to cap a winless SEC season.....

I think this fan base should start calling for Jones head now.... ROFL.....

hmmm.. interesting.. just because they leave, doesnt mean Kentucky has better talent than UT..We still will dominate on OL and our front seven on D.. not to mention KY beat us under arguably the worst coach in past 30 years in the SEC.
And as for calling for his head, the guy hasnt coached a game yet.. give him his 3 years then evaluate him then.. he already is winning over the fan base & former players off the field.. if he can win games, this fan base will love him as well as recruits

Written on Now at Southern Cal, Renaldo 'Swiperboy' Woolridge welcomes Butch Jones to UT:

Wow!!! Alot of negative comments ... this is definitely one of those cases if u cant say anything nice dont say it at all.. i tell u wat grinds my gears, is the fact since they started charging the recruiting news has been completely deleted...

Written on John Adams: An SEC coaching leap isn't for everybody :

look no sense in beating a dead horse.. butch jones is our coach.. lets rock with him.. i know its far fetched, but what about butch davis as DC... even if its only for a year or two... gotta be better than FIU

Written on Butch Jones promises 'best staff in the country' :

Why would people say keep our recruiting coordinator???? Didnt anyone read stephan hargis story? Short memories?

Written on New UT coach Butch Jones in Knoxville:

any way we can get butch davis for defensive coordinator?

Written on Tennessee to pay Jones $18.2 million over six years :

This is all smoke screens... jon gruden still gonna be announced... book it

Omg!!! Wake me up in 3 years when we look for our next coach... remove upper deck at neyland... we wont need it

Written on Vols' search for Dooley replacement continues:

in response to UkJarhead:

Amazed that you people can bash Calipari like you do when he has never been charged or investigated with any wrongdoing yet most of you want Davis, Tressel, or Petrino. One is no doubt a man of low moral fiber, one lied and cheated proven, and the other is one that resided over a program that was left with sanctions. Cal has never had either. No sanctions or wrongdoing against UMass or Memphis ever occured, just proof that 2 players out of the thousands he coached took impermissable benefits that Cal did not have a hand in. They were simply declared ineligible. Yet you want Petrino or Davis and you say you can't wait to hire Pearl back when he gets out of NCAA jail for lying and cheating..... Then you bash Strong for being loyal to his school. The very thing you bash Lane for not doing. Wow. Times are rough for the big orange.

Don't be a moralist. Its called tunnel vision and you got it too. I am pretty sure Calipari cheated / cheats in some way. your right tho we just want to WIN!!!! give us pearl davis tressel or patrino... id rather have davis. he has been cleared by NCAA.. govols. no butch jones please

Written on Vols' search for Dooley replacement continues:

NOT BUTCH JONES. Horrible hire!!!! Butch Davis, Hue Jackson is reportedly showing interest. If not then make Greg Roman say no or Jim Mora jr. I got a list of 40 coaches and Butch Jones isn't on it. I'd rather have Tressel. I'd even rather have Tressel with a public announcement ftom tressell saying " we will cheat, good luck catching us bums. Peace out". That would be more acceptable than butch jones. Dooley 2.0

Written on Should Tennessee consider re-hiring Phillip Fulmer?:

in response to BigOrangeFreak:

How original! You basically stole my entire post and think that proves your point?

"Less with more is way better than none."

That's your argument? Sounds kinda like "At least we don't suck as bad as we used to!" You sound like the kind of guy who wouldn't mind getting scraps thrown to him from the guy who's eating steak.

Is that you Dave Hart?

Fulmer did more for this University than any coach since Robert Neyland. To say he put us in this mess is insulting. but some truth there. He stopped being an all star recruiter. Where we messed up was going after our "splash" hire last time in Lame Kiffin who was red hot coming off the Oakland job fired unfairly for. I blame Lane for this mess. If he would have not left like a theif in the night right before national signing day then we wouldnt have had to scramble for a weak hire in Dooley. I completely agree tho - we dont need to say "atleast he is better than Dooley". I want a schematic genuis for a coach and a great recruiter. how many are there? who knows. i would check at the NFL coordinator ranks before i would hire some coaches like smart or jones. how about jay gruden, or roman. Jay gruden would be a little more of a gamble, but i bet his brother could help him get a great staff together

Written on Charlie Strong spurns UT offer for new deal at Louisville:

Anyone else find it odd that we didn't release ANY information since firing of DD, but in one day we are in the news making 2 offers? In the same day??? something smells fishy. This is a public relations NIGHTMARE regardless. This hire better be even bigger than Charlie Strong if you want to fix this.

Written on Charlie Strong spurns UT offer for new deal at Louisville:

in response to rabblerowser:

What are you smoking? UT is not equal to Vandy. It's been a while since I had math but UT came out on the back side of 41 to 18 against Vandy. Maybe it is that kind of math that has people like Strong turnig UT down

Tenneessee had and will continue to have better talent than its sisters in nashville. Congrats on a win with inferior talent with the worst coached Tennessee team EVER!!.. we are getting that resolved. We gonna get a coach. You noticed we didnt go after your coach cuz we dont like that pierce either

in response to CrimsonProphet:

'Sup, Vol sad sacks,

Listen, it might be easier if you girls just start keeping tabs on everyone who HASN'T turned your sorry clown school program down, because at this point, it seems even peewee league coaches know to pass on (U)seless T.

Look on the bright side ladies, I hear your lacrosse team is really good this year, so maybe just tailgate a few of those matches until my home-boy Dave Hart dresses up some no-named hack that went 5-7 in the MAC with a big orange bow tie and introduces him as your new head football coach.

Welcome to what everyone in the country outside of Knoxville already knows: UT is (and always was)nothing but a third rate program with a fourth rate fan base that benefits mostly from standing on the shoulders of the real SEC giants like my Crimson Tide, Florida, Georgia, LSU, and well... everyone except for the Vols.

Oh BTW, did I mention we're competing for yet ANOTHER national championship here in Tuscaloosa come January?

HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!

"The" University of Tennessee...what a joke!!!

I'm not going out on a limb to guarantee you not gonna say that face to face. Go somewhere. Show some class bum and do the smart thing and keep typing that phooey behind a computer.

Written on John Adams: Strong just wasn't 'cut that way' :

whippity doo adams. Your giddy i know.. others that are UT fans and players want to puke... i hope our current players / recruits hang in there. keep your heads up vol nation. no where to go but up from here

Written on Reports: UT has sights set on Charlie Strong; decision could come as early as Wednesday :

in response to Twelvethirtyone:

If it is Strong, I think that's a good hire... but I still believe it is Gruden and the AD is using the media as a smokescreen. Just my opinion (and yes, I know many will think I'm crazy - maybe I am lol)... No one will know for sure until Dave Hart has a press conference to announce the new coach. :)

I hope your right.. i been lighting candles, burning incense, rubbing buddahs belly, and cracking blood filled eggs in wooden bowls to try to make this thing happen. We will see if it works. Go vols

Written on John Adams: Charlie Strong's strengths match up with UT's weaknesses :

I dont have a problem with this hire. You gotta have defense to win in this league. However, he would have been about 7th on my list. His recruiting and defense were mediocre in louisville.. i just hope he can push this into a top 10 recruiting class as well as keep some juniors from bounce to NFL.. Its ok tho. Hopefully the players will relate to an energetic coach.

Written on John Adams: Charlie Strong's strengths match up with UT's weaknesses :

Wow. JA finally wrote a descent article. Not 100% negative and taking jabs at Tennessee? Wait a minute, is that you behind keyboard Dave Hart? Kudo JA. For once u didnt tick me off

It was just announced that Gundy to Arkansas. We are waiting for all of you who wanted him to accuse Hart of dropping the ball on him.

Bad source... malzahn to auburn. Wisconsin coach brett Bielema Arkie

Written on John Adams: Even though it won't be Jon Gruden, the new coach will win over UT fans at media conference :

Here we go again adams. 2 shay. I get it. Adams likes to stir the pot. Its just obnoxious. Please find a positive story somewhere. Go do some investigative reporting. Interview an athlete deserving of a pat on back. Stop trying to throw jabs at program on the slide

Written on John Adams: 2012 Notre Dame similar to 1998 Vols' national title team :

Wow. Adams just wrote a story without being completely negative about Tennessee. I'm shocked. Could it be true? I thought after coming off one of worst seasons in school histories and the articles produced were " Tennessee needs speed" ... ok? thanks for stating obvious. oh yea and " next coach needs to build depth " ok? and? anyone that pays attention to TN football notices we skipped out on lineman recruiting other than JUCOs. This is an actual article that is not negative. Sure its not positive, but hey - I'll take what I can get. Good move Adams. Thanks for having an off day. Just please do not title your next article "Tennessee needs a new coach" and proceed to remind us all how bad we have faired lately. We all know and its been painful enough. I already missed out on my wish that GA and Bama would end in a 0-0 tie and be voted worse game ever. BTW, after watching that game with all the talented RBs - boy it would be nice to sign Derrick Green

Written on Gruden tells Tennessee no thanks:

Jimmy hyams doesnt know. No street cred.

Written on Gruden tells Tennessee no thanks:

in response to RollTideJoe:

I can assure you that Bama fans aren't worried about the hire.

Bama fans arent worried about the hire???? I dont want petrino to go to awwburned. I dont want any good coach to be in SEC unless its my own school. You know as well as I do when gruden and his all star staff get here we gonna be fighting over recruits again instead of easy pickins for your coach. He aint wasting his time on sunsari, chaney, or kirby smart for that matter. If u aint worried then u should be. This aint Derek dooley anymore

Written on Jay Greeson: Is Gruden the right solution for the Vols?:

in response to alavol:

Gruden is another Dooley- no college experience; Petrino will win from day one!

If he is derek dooley then why is he the most sought after coach nation wide in recent memory. To put him in dooley class is a terrible excuse for a joke. Dooley specializes in nothing. A TE coach guru? Give me a break dooley = gruden is a joke. Petrino is better than most names out there as a coach. We need instant credibility gruden would bring. Forget saying gruden is unproven. He has proven alot more than muschamp or mullen before they were hired and where are their teams now. Id take jim mora jr or petrino over most coaches I've heard, but Gruden has alot more class than those guys. Id rather roll my dice with him. And those idiots in past post saying gruden isnt coming and everybody should get over it has a small brain. He has shown he has interest. I'm not saying he is coming but the yahoos that think there is 0% chance don't know either. The interest is there. Lets real him in. Instant buzz for our program that kiffin tried to bring but gruden could bring it without picking fights. I commend you for at least thinking petrino should be on a short list but its obvious gruden is by far best option we could EVER hope for. ( unless Peyton were retired and showed interest in coaching). The interest is there. The ties to east TN is there. Let's make it happen. This mediocrity makes me want to puke

Written on Jay Greeson: Is Gruden the right solution for the Vols?:

There are a still a few non believers that Gruden is not the man for the job. If that is the case go ahead and renounce yourself as a VOL fan now! We don't need you. If you are that dumb to not think he can immediately create buzz around this program then you must be from France. Just give me all your vol gear now and trust me I will pass it on to all the new vols fans that will come stand and wait in line for a chucky doll. I'm sick and tired of this mediocre program. I'm sure the big name boosters are too. I'm sick and tired of these punk kids running around here in my state rooting for Bama and Florida and anyone else. They don't know any better I understand but it makes me sick. If you ain't Tennessee I don't root for you in any game. I dont care if bama was fighting a war with Egypt I'm rooting for Egypt to win by 50. Bama fans make me sick. Fedora and Golden and all these no name idiots that are being put over the most sought after coach in the nation make me sick too. If he doesnt want to come so be it. I am rooting for him and UT all the way. O yea and all those people saying Gruden took Dungy's team to Super Bowl why don't you look at who he played against in that game if you got enough sense to know what that means then you got your answer. I'm ticked off and been emotionally invested in this team with a rag tag coaching staff. We deserve better. We have NFL talent on offense AND defense and those kids deserve better. So what we lacked spead. The product put out on the field was the low ranked coaches that mike hamilton and derek dooley hired and I'm tired of this junk. Pay Gruden and lets get this nightmare behind us.

Written on Gruden, Haslam, Browns shoot down Memphis report over UT deal:

For all you yahoos that say gruden wouldnt leave his cushion job to go back to the grind of coaching:
1. Watch the movie Troy where Pitt says " That's why no one will remember your name". Gruden loves competition. Ask chuck norris
2. Why would you interview coaches if you loved the booth. I hope he comes here, he'd be an absolute rockstar.
