Written on John Adams: Butch Jones hasn't had enough time to change UT's losing ways:

in response to antonio14313:

With all due respect (or lack thereof), your predictions would even be accurate if coach dooley were still at UT. But I'm not alone when I say that it's probably a safe bet to say that we now have a better coach and game manager than that in coach jones...

Austin Peay - c'mon now. W
W Kentucky - coach petrino, yada yada yada. W
Oregon - too much speed, and a big road game. L
Florida - rivalry game, and we're ready. W
S Alabama - biggest blowout of the year. W
Georgia - very close game. L
S Carolina - best O line shuts down clowney. Again. W
Alabama - i'd bet on tennessee to cover the betting line. L
Missouri - after what happened last year, we kill 'em. W
Auburn - weakest team in the west. W
Vanderbilt - another payback game. vandy comes back to earth. W
Kentucky - with or without a WR at QB, we kill 'em. W

You do the math.

Of course I'd like a 14-0 season. Every season. But let's be real...

GO VOLS!!!

I like the way you think especially the gator game. Last year I cried in my happy meal in the rain. Brick by brick.

in response to dragon18:

Butch Jones' greatest challenge is to remove the lingering stench of losing from the program. Sometimes a losing mentality becomes ingrained into the culture of a program and it is almost impossible to eradicate it. If you have listened carefully or if you watched the preseason special on WVLT yesterday you can see that as a major challenge for this program. It is, IMO, the worst of Dooley's legacy. The guy just didn't have the winner's mentality and it became abundantly clear in the MO game. Couple that with the fact that we have great players that have not been fully developed in their time at UT and it will be extremely difficult to get to 7 or 8 wins this year. I like CBJ's approach and I love his fire and intensity (staff too) but I sincerely worry that year 1 will be hard for these boys to mentally climb out of the hole during the brutal stretch of top ten teams. It's not impossible and sameolvolalum is correct in that they are opportunities but it will be a difficult row to hoe. My fear is that we all get too excited and begin to have visions of 9 or 10 win season and then have a severe let down when the reality of our situation comes to fruition. I do believe CBJ will bring this program back to prominence again, but it will be year 3. I hope this doesn't make me a negavol because that is not what I want to be, but I've been there done that and this is not going to be a one season fix.

BTW- I hope everyone of you have the opportunity at the end of the season to tell me to eat crow:-) Go Vols

You're a good Vol dragon but I disagree with everything you just said

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

in response to BIVOLAR_BEARE:

Well, are you suggesting that Vandy has a better line, or that more OL will be drafted by the NFL?

Hey BB wuts up? Me and the wife at the Bearskin lodge in gburg. One last vacation weekend before football. This gonavy guy. I've seen him here before and I thought he may have served like you and I but he's nutin more than a stupid dore. We're gonna kick the livin poop out of those guys and I can't wait. Frankin is a jerk and his mouth is gonna do him in. Can you imagine wut a butt he's gonna make of himself this year especially in Knoxville?

Here's hoping we can find some skill people to take advantage of what these guys can do. GBO

Exactly. Our offensive line should be very good. It all begins with a good foundation, the offensive line. I think Coach Butch and company are gonna have these guys ready to go. No more second half meltdowns.

Written on Mike Strange: This time, it's not Year Zero at Tennessee:

The anticipation of seeing the Vols run through the T for the first game is overwhelming. Your heart is racing. Last year Dooley broke our hearts. My heart is starting to race once again, but this time it's different. There's something in the air and it smells sweet. ButchPlease

If you write for govols and it's a slow day, just bring up Fulmer and you're good for 200-300 posts. Oh hum. Here we go again. It's like the Hatfields and McCoys.

Written on John Adams: Phillip Fulmer needs to look in a mirror before assessing blame:

The story that will not die. 213 posts and counting. Maybe when the Vols take the field, we'll get a breather from the Fulmer era.

Written on Quarterbacks center of attention for UT coaches in scrimmage:

in response to SevenT:

You know I think Fulmer's weight had a lot to do with his energy level, stamina and overall health. It probably did slow him down a lot. The pressure at Tennessee is a big as any team in the SEC and Fulmer probably ate too much as a stress reliever.

But no Butch needs to have as good of a winning percentage, Bowl appearances and success recruiting as Fulmer to satisfy me.

Hehehe. You're funny seven teeth. It's so easy to draw you out.

By your own standards you actually think you speak on behalf of Vol Fans.....Take a close look at your own post where you say "we care about your views" There is no "we" it is only you deluding yourself into thinking you speak on behalf of others.

Just Saying

Thank you sir for monitoring this site and disposing of individuals such as this Billy guy.

There are others with whom a close eye is certainly needed. The rest of us here know the Seven T kid, Dawg days, and several others warrant the same action in order to clean up this site and make it an enjoyable one for us.

Thanks again !

Good job, OC. I vote to remove sevenT. Of all the trolls, and there are many, this one should be next. He is toxic.

I have taken a lot of criticism on this site for my views on Vol-Fans. I enjoy UT football but do not enjoy being near the UT Fans. But you Sir are the very reason for my existence on this site. Thank you for illustrating the culture of Tennessee Football fan so perfectly with your rants.

You are a true UT fan.

Seven teeth, you suffer from a double does of Unwarranted Self-Importance. Do you actually think we care about your views of Vol fans? Really? I love Tennessee football and I thoroughly enjoy being around Vol fans. Perhaps you should hang out with gator fans instead. Yeah, that's what you should do, go to Gainesville. P.S. I'm doing my best to get you removed.

in response to BIVOLAR_BEARE:

He didn't have to be mentioned, you have mentioned his winning % on numerous occasions. Once again you're not being honest if you can't admit you come on here to strictly annoy and be argumentative. You find a stance and you debate just to debate. If this is not true why haven't you discussed topical issues concerning UT fb instead of challenging other fans about past opinions or statements? Just once I'd like to hear you start off a discussion about the starting QB, or defensive alignment, anything fb related without personal attacks.

in response to Navaloranges:

If you can't root for Jones BEFORE the season, nobody wants you on board after, nobody. I think I speak for all true vol fans when I call you out to be the definition of a FAIR WEATHERED fan. NO real Vol fan would sit here and trash the fans, team, and coaches for YEARS, then climb back on board when we come out of the weeds. Your kind aren't counted as "real" fans, and we don't need you claiming to be WHEN CBJ turns this ship around. You need to keep your little happy arse back on the dock after that ship sails, where you belong.

Every Vol coach, including Dooley and Kiffin, DESERVES the chance to succeed, until it becomes clear that they can't handle the job. It's not kiffins, Dooley's, or Jones' fault Fulmer was fired. They were offered the job, they took it. Anybody discounting a UT head coach, before they even play one game, in my mind, is foolish. Again I'll say, they are NO REAL FAN, if they participate is such foolishness.

Couldn't uh said it better myself. Well done Naval!

Written on Evan Woodbery: UT video drops strong hints that new uniforms will come out today, could be 'smokey':

in response to BIVOLAR_BEARE:

I'm one of those traditionalist, but that's just me. I like to think that Hank Aaron still owns the HR title and Babe Ruth was the greatest baseball icon to ever lace up his cleats. If done correctly UT could really sharpen a pretty dull uniform. The solid white pants (IMO) look like practice uniforms. In Butch I trust to not go too far. GBO!!

Sup BB! I think coach butch hit a homer when he had Spoelstra speak to the team. He spoke over an hour and the players were hanging on every word. Butch is doing all the right things.

in response to Vol43:

I think the gray color (official Tennessee color, Smoky pms426) is a great idea. Know how this all came about? Coach Butch found it in the manual so blame it on him. Tell you what naysayers, ask the players what they think. Some folks just can't deal with change. It's really that simple

43 have you lost your friggin mind? We're orange and white for crying out loud! Deal with it!

UT coach Butch Jones said Wednesday junior Riyahd Jones, a projected started at cornerback, has “a leg injury” and is “still undergoing evaluation.”............He said "tomorrow" he is a projected "started" .......Geesh!........also the vague term "leg injury" sounds more like a Dooley statement than Butch, who usually communicates clearly.

Based on the rumblings I'm hearing, this is more on the player than on coach

Written on Vanderbilt fans still loyal despite rape case controversy:

in response to 865fan:

Had the 5000 showed up at the jail to support the four charged players, I would get your disgust. Or if Franklin had stood by the players and then the 5000 showed up to support him and his program, I could get your disgust.
BUT...that's not what happened! Not sure what you know about Vandy to label the whole program a "corrupt program".
Fans turned out to support the players, and coaches who did nothing illegal. Did you stop supporting UT when Ontario Smith beat up his girlfriend and was sent packing? Could I name a dozen more situations? YES! We have had our rotten apples and thrown them out. Did you blame those bad apple's actions on our coach and stop being a fan? Obviously not.
And...as a last thought, I bet this young woman will actually cheer for the Vandy football team. Why? Because they represent her school and none of her attackers are on the team.

I believe the regular Vol posters are wise enough to completely understand the gravity of this situation and certainly don't need a lecturing. This could have happened anywhere and if it had to happen, I'm glad it happened under jimmy's watch.

I'll have to pay... gotta see the Butchball debut. I also wish Mike Keith would call all Vols games. If I can't have John Ward back, Mike is the next best thing.

Amen, bro. At one time, Mike was considered to replace the great John Ward, but something happened. I heard Kessling on local sports radio the other day and there's no doubt in my mind he's orange thru and thru, but he is awful at his job. I hate saying that, but he will absolutely wear you out!

Written on Former Vandy football players indicted for rape:

I heard a rumor that Jimmy cussed the Tennessee fans upon his departing Neyland 2 years ago. I have predicted that Jimmy's hot temper and loose mouth will be his undoing at vandy. Once, I met Woody Woodenhoffer at the Sportsman's Grill in Nashville and we shared a few drinks. What a class act, Woody. If this horrible incident had to happen at vandy, I'm thrilled it happened under Jimmy's watch.

Written on Former Vandy football players indicted for rape:

in response to VolunteerLifer:

Vandy fans have always stuck their noses in the air when talk of their football impotence came up. This is the price they said they never wanted to pay to have a winning football team. But it's the price all programs pay when they hire a self centered punk for a football coach. We know all about it. We hired one who stayed one year, recruited some criminals, and then moved on. Be careful for what you wish, Candy. You just might get it. Not so stuck up anymore, eh?

Couldn't have said it better.

Written on Former Vandy football players indicted for rape:

As long as I've lived here, and it's been a long time, nothing even remotely has happened at Vandy as this very sad news. Squeaky clean program. Then comes Jimmy and the rest is history. All I'm saying is in all the history of Vanderbilt football, nothing like this has ever hit the news. Then comes Jimmy. Sometimes success comes with a price. This is about as bad as it gets.

I'm not going to lie, it gets rough out here. Everyday I have to put up with the fans of Big Orange Country. I got to hand it to you folks, y'all are very passionate (and delusional) about your Vols. I'll agree with 9willbesofine, however, I think UT could beat USC and MAYBE UGA (depending how bad they are defensively). You can go ahead and chalk the UF, Bama and Oregon games down as losses lol.

Your favorite troll,

Hey 88, how's things at the factory? Nothing wrong with factory work, at least you aren't mooching off the taxpayers, yet. I get a good chuckle out the fact that you have to live and work right smack dab in Big Orange Country. This the funniest part of it all is you probably can't afford to go to the games at gaysnville so I suggest you watch the Vol/gator game at Calhouns in Knoxville and wear your gator gear and cuss the Vols and spit on em just like you would in gaysnville. Life in Knoxville! You have to feel like you're in prison, and, you are. He

I don't think 88 and Nine are the same person. While 88 is misguided being a UF fan, he and CCLC show some respect and decorum that you do not see from the trolls.

MM, I still maintain this is none other than the infamous gatorbait88. I know this man's style. He's been booted repeatedly, but always returns. This time around, he has posted 13 times since aug 1. The times of his posts all suggest he's a graveyarder. I challenge you to read his most recent offerings and I think you'll see what I'm saying. All of them without expection are mean spirited. In one he calls us losers. No, he's not just taking gentile jabs, he's a real Vol hater.

That's what bothers a troll........when they think they've said something cute, but nobody listens..........or cares.

Hey OC, about this Ninewillbefine character. I'm near certain this is none other than gatorbait88, just another new name. This loser troll lives in Knoxville and works the graveyard shift in Alcoa. Can you imagine how miserable this loser must be? A gator living right in the heart of Vol land. I think it's funny that everyday he has to rub shoulders with Vols. It would be like being forced to live and work in gainsville, the sewer of the country.

Good point OC. The trolls you just mentioned should be on their respective sites pumping up the fan base, but what are they doing, talking to the Vols. That tells me a LOT! Fear is a very strong emotion; almost as strong as jealousy
