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

in response to Sunshine27:

Thank you John Adams!
Perfectly said!! I've said from day 1 Fulmer had his day, but our digression falls in his lap...100%. He quit, got lazy, got fat, felt because he had a few good years that the kids would come to him...no chance. He's not that big of a personality to carry any program. He and many of his assistants were the laughing stocks of college football because of their girth. He was also guilty of not paying his coaches worth a damn....no recruiting means no success...thanks again Fulmer. We are where we are because YOU quit.

I do not think Bray could overcome the problems created by two words: Derek Dooley. The situation was a mess the entire time Bray played.

You actually stupid enough to think Dooley is responsible for Bray being a spoiled IDIOT .

It will be hard to believe that Dooley lost to Vanderbilt and Mizz with probably 5-6 Vols selected in this year's draft. Can you say un-der-a-chieve-r?

OH , thats easy when your QB has a mind of A 12 year old .

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

in response to SevenT:

Firing Fulmer was the single biggest mistakes in the history of College Football. Just look how pitiful Tennessee has been since Fulmer is gone.

Just Saying

Fulmer needed firing , he started this down fall.

Written on End to Lady Vols' season doesn't feel good:

in response to mjc66:

Do you mean by point guard not being able to defend against other point guards? Possibly a valid point although I don't think everything was her fault.

But, if you were saying Ms. Massengale isn't a good point guard on the offensive side, didn't you read the article that said the team matched their scoring average from the rest of the year?

This game was lost (unfortunately) by a not-so-solid defensive effort. And, to lay that blame solely on Ms. Massengale is quite wrong. This was a team effort and the loss should be spread equally across all players.

Massengale can't handle the ball , she makes bad decisions . Ever point she scores , she wll cost you two . She's gotta improve or be replaced or this team to get where it wants to be .

Written on End to Lady Vols' season doesn't feel good:

Written on Govols247: Thompson picks Tennessee:

This kid is the whole package , i watched him all year . The VOLS are getting a great player .

Written on Lady Vols know they need to improve defense heading into NCAA tournament:

in response to volsmanll:

you people that complain about Massengale should know that maybe CPS saw something in her that Holly can not or will not see. She needs to be coached "up" a little but do the coaches have anyone to do it ? I am sure CPS saw a lot in her when she brought her in as a starter her freshman year. Where is our coach to bring it out in her now ??? Just asking

Well Messengale is not getting any better ,she just ant and can't get job done . She can't handle the ball .She makes bad decisions ,CPS made a mistake .

BULLSHAT

Written on Texas A&M takes one away from Lady Vols in final minute, 66-62:

in response to oldster:

Massengale is a waste of a scholarship. She cannot guard a paraplegic. They have to play a zone because of her inadequacies. She supposedly is a good ball handler and is proficient at running the offense. Darn if she has been good at either in the last three games. They have to play her because of the short bench, but as soon as they get anyone who can dribble and walk at the same time, they need to revoke her scholarship, or, at least, just set her on the bench. Unfortunately, today Williams and Simmons stunk, too.

I would disagree with Nell Fortner about how to play offense against an overplaying defense like A&M. Neither one on one nor screens are particulary effective against such. Rather one clears out the lane and back door cuts them.

You are exactly right .

This was a tough loss , the seniors did great . Ariel Massengale is not a point guard , she can't handle the ball and makes bad decisions .

Written on Meighan Simmons' foul problems no problem for Lady Vols' scorers, 82-73:

in response to springtx_vol:

Okay, not one else has said this, so i will.

What am I missing in the play, the two times Simmons went to the bench with foul trouble, the LV pushed the lead to double digits? Is Simmons on the bench like Rondo hurting his knee for the Celtics? A good, maybe great player that when not there allows the team to play better overall? The Celtics were 12-4 without Rondo, which was much better than their record with him.

While Simmons has improved her D this year, it still isn't really up to snuff and she can be a ball hog.

Where this team be without Simmons DA ,she's the oil thats keeps the motor running .

Written on Switch to zone in second half key for Lady Vols, 73-53 :

in response to oldster:

Good win, but I still do not see what the coach sees in Simmons. I would not choose her speed, but recklessness and bad decision making over all that Kamiko Williams brings to the game. I guess it is that scary word "potential."

Simmons is the spark plug . Fun to watch her play .This is a fun team to watch , win or lose .

Written on Do you believe Butch Jones is the right choice to be UT's coach?:

in response to jenna1009001:

I don't know much about Butch Jones. I do know this that the Vol nation needs to shut up and give the man a chance. He has a good core of players on the offensive side and hopefully we get some more defensive help from incoming freshman. That is more that Derek Dooley had when he was hired.

Good comment
