Written on Vols aiming to have nation's top offensive line:

I know Josh Dobbs is just a freshman who needs more time to bulk up, but I wish I could see him start! The O Line should help a lot too. Im hoping that this will help generate more offense too. With the new pro style fast paced offense. GBO

Written on Vols continue seeking answers in passing game:

Im really would like to see more of what Dobbs can do! I think it would be great to have a more mobile QB! Especially with the new fast paced offense. He's probably not another Johnny Football but I think he could definitely step up and make some plays! I understand that he doesn't have any game experience so I don't see Butch picking him as a starter just yet. But man, I sure would like to see it! GBO

Written on Poll: What do you think of Tennessee's new gray uniform?:

I don't understand why everyone is so worked up about this. It's just an alternate uniform and will only be used once or twice out of the year. I say use them in October against South Carolina, just like the Black Out Halloween Uniforms! Which I thought were cool and was ok for one time use! First off, SMOKEY gray is one of the official colors and I have seen UT apparel with the gray color. I own some myself. I don't see this being that big of an issue and I like it. Just think about what Butch said. He will not try to break from tradition and he's not. In fact the other traditional Orange & White Uni's are great as well. Butch said "out of the 10 questions recruits ask, the uniform is in the top 3" GBO!

Written on Poll: Of Tennessee's four non-conference games per season, how many should be against teams from power conferences?:

I've heard from many other fans around Alabama (Where I live unfortunately haha) Mostly Bama and florida fans, that quote "Every team in the SEC has an easy schedule sometimes because of the rotation." I cant seem to wrap my head around that considering we have had a tough schedule the last 2 or 3 years. When I say tough, I mean playing current top talent teams back to back for 4 weeks. UK had a CRAZY tough schedule last year! Why punish the teams who are trying to rebuild with a harder schedule? I say that cause teams like Bama get by with murder on a schedule. YES I know Bama has been the dominant team the last 4 years and they have a LOT of good talent! They deserve everything the have accomplished. but again, why do they get to breeze by sometimes? For example, if Bama loses to Texas A&M, they can still beat georgia and LSU and compete for another title. (Maybe it's because there isn't enough top talent in the SEC right now, to put teams like Bama up against. If they beat all 3 teams, its almost guaranteed that they will compete for a title. Any team has a chance to upset teams like Bama, LSU, Georgia but why are these 3 teams, the only ones who have more than enough talent to upset them? In other words, Georgia has a better chance to upset a team than Kentucky does. My problem with all this is that they play the tough teams in a more spread out schedule and even sometimes they don't even have to play the harder games. Maybe Im looking at this all wrong. Those teams are tough but its more broken up in the schedule. I think a lot of it has to do with politics and money but what do I know. Maybe Im just Jealous of other teams success. But I can say one thing, playing more than one out of conference power house team the next 2 seasons will be suicide (So to speak). Until UT rebuilds (Which we will) to a championship team, we need all the breaks we can get.

Im SUPER excited that UT will play Auburn this year! I want to see UT end this 5 year losing streak to Auburn! Im hoping I get a chance to go to the game because it could be a memorable game, unless its a blow out haha

Written on Mark Wiedmer: SEC football fans touchy about uniform changes:

I agree because I think its good to keep up with the times and to impress the young people. I personally liked the Black Out uniforms but I would only like to see them used on Halloween! That would be cool! I think small changes to the uniforms are ok as long as its not to big of a change. GBO

I watched this on TV a few hours ago. Lane Kiffen and Dooley both had stupid comments. Kiffen wanted to "sing Rocky Top all night long after beating Florida next year." and Dooley said "You wont have Tennessee to kick around anymore"........ Butch seems as if he has some common sense not to say things like that. hahahaha Good job Jones! GBO!

Written on Poll: What is the best way to increase student attendance at home football games?:

I have to say, none of these options seem like they have any relevance to making students want to attend games....
The only one I can see that might be of little relevance would be the cell phone reception, considering young people have their smart phones glued to their hands 24-7.
Lower the price of student tickets? I thought student tickets were $10.00. Whats so bad about that? GIVE ME a $10.00 ticket haha
The only thing that will help bring more students and fans to Neyland is to WIN! Lets go coach Jones!

Written on Tennessee football takes another hit in NCAA academic rate, could face serious penalties without improvement:

I can see the APR rate slowly dropping off from 2008-2012. Something is wrong with this picture and I hope they fix it and fix it SOON! I think some fans see college athletes as just players on the field and forget about the academics that are behind the scenes. Its easy to forget about it. Now that I have read this I now realize that academics comes first. It is a University after all haha and a DANG good one! GBO

Written on Tennessee at Oregon to kickoff at 3:30 p.m.:

Butch Jones can't keep fighting to win, thats up to the players and how bad they want it. Butch can only motivate, teach and coach his butt off to be creative enough to win. Im a realistic person and I honestly don't see a win. On the other hand, Oregon don't play much in the SEC so it should be interesting at least. It can't be any worse than the last time these two teams met. Creativity and a lot of determination will help the Vols. Im sure coach Jones will have a few tricks in his game plan to try and throw off the ducks. GBO!

Written on After draft, some former Vols know their destination, others still searching for homes:

I bet he wishes he would have stayed one more year and finished. Oh well, he has talent but it will be some time before he gets his time to shine. I guess he thought he needed to jump ship early because he was worried about where UT was headed. He also knew that he would be playing without his best receivers too. Now that Butch Jones is there, things are looking up. Not to say he isn't a Vol but I think If he had a little more commitment to UT he would have stayed but he's just a kid and the thought of big $$$ clouded his judgement a bit. He will do just fine in the NFL, just give him time. GBO

Written on Offense wins Saturday's scrimmage as Vols work on red zone:

I always find it hard to judge how well a team is progressing as a whole when you have all UT players playing against each other. I know it's the only way for them to practice but is it bad or good if the offense wins one week and the defense the next? I think if the score was low and the scrimmage was close, then it would seem as if both sides were doing good equally. Like a score of 14-16 or 7-10. GBO

Written on Tennessee still looking for 'playmakers' on offense:

I think what Walt means is, "Fine as in, 6-6" but even that would be great for UT at this point. It sounds bad. "the string of dropped passes and fumbled transitions, or seen the growing injury list, or noticed the absence of a top running back." ...... wow.... I know it sounds bad but It can't be any worse than last year. after one good season will come a 2nd great season. This recruiting class seems like a win. I wonder about Jabo Lee. I haven't heard anything about him yet. I bet he could step up some. Reminds me of CP! GBO

Written on 21 new Vols in Tennessee's 2013 signing classs:

For some reason.... Im really excited about MarQuez North!
He seems like a fine upstanding guy who has the mind set to be great and the talent to perform great too! He actually wants to plat at UT and thats a plus. We need kids like him who can replace WR's like Patterson and Hunter. Although Hunter did struggle a little bit last year he was still a good all around player.
I wish everyone good luck in fighting for starting positions and for everyone to stay healthy.
Hey Butch Jones! So far your doing good (considering what he walked into) keep it up BUD! GBO

Note: I also noticed that USC was loosing a lot of good recruits. I feel bad for them in some way but the other side of me is laughing hahaha Mostly at the coach and the hiring staff and not the team. Their not a bad team at all. Take it from us USC, Ol lane Kiffin and his NCAA sanctions didn't help much did it? I just find it a bit amusing to see him leave us for them and for them to think he was the next BIG THING if you will. Good luck to USC this year, your gonna need it.

Written on Dallas Cowboys hire Derek Dooley as wide receivers coach :

in response to VFL_Troll_Patrol:

I feel really bad for the Dallas Cowboys. They already had enough troubles this season, now they got Dooley....?

Hopefully they will fire him after his first year and not wait for three. Dooley did one thing right at UT and that was improve the offense.
He made a mistake by hiring Sal who crapped up our defense. All that being said, considering that Dooley only did a "Few" things right, he is still a terrible coach at any position. Sorry Cowboys :(

Im looking at a brighter future for UT!

I never hated Dooley as a person. He is a great family man and he is smart. But he is NOT good at coaching. Can you blame me or other UT fans for expressing their dislike for him. Just look at where we got with him. He improved the offense but made to many mistakes, like hiring Sal. His mistakes out weigh the good things he did. Good luck Dooley.

Written on Dallas Cowboys hire Derek Dooley as wide receivers coach :

in response to jhayes0926#638474:

why be such a hater for someone? Good luck to him. He did his best for UT. It just wasn't enough, but he is human and doesn't deserve vindictive insults.

Im only telling the truth...... As a UT fan, It's hard to say good things about his coaching ability. But when he's not a coach its a different story.
Dooley is a nice guy. Very smart man but he is a terrible coach. Im not a hater, I liked Dooley for what he did on offense but he was still not good enough to get the job fully done. Yes, good luck to him. He did his best but his best wasn't good enough for head coach. It's hard not to point out his shortcomings as UT's head coach. Just look where we got with him. Can you blame a few UT fans for expressing their dislike for him? Im sorry but thats just how I feel. He's a good family man but just not good at being a coach.

Written on Tennessee coaches are on Twitter, but are they doing their own tweeting?:

in response to bleuvol:

Twitter is totally the way to go with recruiting these young men. They constantly have their phones in their hands, and it gives them a sense of connection and that their world matters to the rest of the world--within seconds. If a coach seems relatable and willing to communicate 'in their language,' an automatic connection is made. I personally don't use it, but just recently found out that students are blowin it up!

Yeah I agree. If it works for recruiting then go for it! It better at least be coach Jones himself doing the tweeting.

Written on Tennessee WR Justin Hunter bound for NFL draft, while Ja'Wuan James says he'll be back :

Well, I don't see this as much of a big deal as long as others stay. I say that because as happy for Hunter as I am, I still wasn't impressed by him this season (2012). He had so many dropped passes and ect. I think he is being smart by going into the NFL this year. Im happy for the guy, but I also have a feeling that he was worried that if he didn't leave now, he may not get another shot because of his "not so great but ok" season. Call me crazy I guess but I still feel like its good he is gone and now other players can step up in his place and show what they can do. Bottom line is, I don't see this as being a hurt on UT's 2013 season as long as Bray, Patterson and others stay one more year. GBO
