Written on Vols place 7 on coaches' All-SEC teams:

in response to ATX_VOL_FAN:

"Kentucky was in last place, with only two players on the third team".

LOL!!!

Made the whole article worth reading. Glad we got some dudes on each team, though.

Joker Phillips = WORST Coach EVER!

Hopefully this dump of a basketball program will make the NIT

You seriously saying that?
I give UK fans credit for having basketball knowledge, you are just one of the exceptions.

Written on UT is No. 15 on list of schools with top merchandise :

Hey, leave Jeff alone! He is soon to be a big time $$$ man when he writes the check for the Jeff Flowers Jock Wash Station. Ok, ok.. It's only a sink, but it brings back so many fond memories for him.

We appreciate your obsession with everything Vols.
Glad you'll be watching.

Written on Jabo Lee's coach upset with Tennessee:

Maybe I am reading more into this, but I wouldn't be surprised if this came about at the "request" of , hmmm, say some old ball coach in state, just to try and discredit the current staff at Tennessee. Bet it would be used on the recruiting trail....

Written on Texas A&M freshman lineman Polo Manukainiu dies in crash:

Team allegiance matters not when we lose someone so young. Tragic.

Written on Mike Strange: Enjoy Austin Peay and South Alabama, you paid for it:

Scheduling only P5 games means the demise of football programs elsewhere. It is these sacrificial paydays that keep their programs running. Now, if you want to talk about breaking away from the NCAA and starting a new organization, I am all ears and would back that 100%.

Written on Tennessee to hold open practice at Neyland Stadium on Aug. 17:

in response to cobragolfer:

Butch Jones is only building up one thing on the hill ... your expectations!! Same happened with Kiffen and Dooley. The Salvation Boys didn't save you afterall, and neither will Sgt. Carter.

I am quite the realist. Unlike basketball, you are not going to win a championship with one recruiting class. It takes several, especially in the SEC. Either be along for the ride, or get out of the way as the motor is running and we are picking up speed. Just requires some patience.

Sad day indeed. My condolences to her family and friends.

Written on Coaches feud over impact of fast-paced offenses on players:

in response to Olddogsrule:

But we do care about the athletes right? Especially their bodies and their brains?
-------------------------
From the article:

http://sportsillustrated.cnn.com/coll...

"For us the main thing is, 10 percent of kids will get concussions, but 50 percent will show changes in the way their brain behaves that is almost equivalent," said Nauman. "I'm not worried just about the defense, I'm worried about the linemen on both sides that might take 70 hits in a game. We're looking at somewhere between 60 to 90 hits to the head per week is all you want to take."
Researchers have consistently found that it's not just the number of hits that contribute to brain trauma, but the magnitude of those hits. That's why all those who were interviewed for this story stressed the risk that comes with fatigue-induced breakdowns in technique. A player who does exactly what he's been taught by his coaches -- blocking with hands, form-tackling -- should minimize the number of high-impact hits he sustains to the head.
However, linebackers and defensive backs worn down from chasing receivers all over the field are more inclined to lunge with their head. Exhausted linemen may default to a head-on bull rush rather than using their hands. "We would anticipate these issues become more problematic the more fatigued you are," said Talavage.

----------------------------
We've added and/or increased penalties for roughing the passer, roughing the kicker, spearing, and etc. Big man dehydration and fatigue obviously contribute to poorer execution. Studies have shown defense can be more fatiguing than offense. However, when severely fatigued, both sides are more prone to concussions, due to the sheer number of increased plays throughout the year. Some of these will have severe consequences. No, we shouldn't consider the young men who come to play for Tennessee as fodder to the football game. If research indicates a necessity for a rule to allow replacement, so be it. Our athletes brains are more important than the W-L column any day of the year.

The point made about exhaustion and dehydration is very valid. What about creating a hydration system for use between plays that fits inside the helmet? This not only supplements the athlete with needed fluids during play, but would also act as a cushion for the head inside the helmet. A flush mounted nozzle for quick refill could be added so it could be replenished between series.

Written on SEC hires Bell as coordinator of hoops officials:

Hopefully, he has been away from the SEC long enough to be good. There is not one single SEC official that would have deserved this job. Simply put, SEC basketball officials are the worst of the worst.

Written on Ex-Auburn player indicted in point-shaving scheme:

I hope the SEC officials are next to be investigated. How else can you explain some of the calls these clowns make.

Written on Josh Dobb's calls now will be with Tennessee Vols:

My take on this article is 1) Dobbs is a very intelligent kid. 2) Dobbs WANTS TO BE A LEADER.

Those are 2 intangibles it takes to be a very good / great quarterback.

Written on John Adams: Dave Hart ahead of schedule with hires:

in response to orangecountyvols:

USAF,

We have a number of Vol fans who are on the same team. We have simply 2, maybe 3 trolls here who as most have said, are present with an agenda to stir things up, run down the AD and coaches, and in short..........just be nuisances to everyone else who wants to attempt to enjoy the site.

Stay tuned. IMO, once again, with these ignorant screen names.........they may very well be history. We'll see.

Go USAF, and Go Vols

Always complaints, never offers solutions. Typical of a sad, sad person with low self esteem.
If they do want to have a say, write the big check and I am sure they will be listened to.

Written on Dave Hart already a big Butch Jones fan :

in response to SevenT:

First whiff was when Chuckie laughed out loud at the UT job offer.

Second when Charlie Strong turned down Tennessee to stay at Louisville everyone knew the UT program was in the complete dumpster.

I think it is hilarious that PHart is now bragging about hiring the third or fourth person on the hiring list.

Next season Bobby Petrino's Western Kentucky team will wax Tennessee and all the vol fans will be calling for Jones' head.

Just Saying

UK All-time record 580–582–44 (.499)

And you are laughing why?

As for WKU, sure, they will come into Neyland 1-0, but leave at .500, something you aspire to be.

Written on Dave Hart already a big Butch Jones fan :

I believe that, given time, we WILL be back with CBJ and his staff. As for his recruiting, check out the link on 2015 commit Zach Stewart:

Written on Tennessee defensive back Daniel Gray to transfer:

in response to cheetah-vol:

Last night, I drank my Doolaid along with a few shots of Johnny Majors and smoked Kiffin blunts.

I listened to the Florida St./Bama version of “You Cheating Hart” while having a conspiracy plan in the form of a Gator tattooed on my Cheek.

Now I am deeply in debt and owe everyone money, and all my ex’s are filing lawsuits against me.

This morning, I read from “The Book of The Truth Squad” where the stories of The Greatest and his disciples made me realize I betrayed Coach Phil Fulmer, Coach Butch Jones is the second coming of Dooley, and I am delusional, a sunshine pumper, and a sycophant.

It is written that unless I start posting apocalyptic comments with multiple screen names about the UTAD that are totally unrelated to the GVX articles others are commenting on, then I am destined to burn in Hades along with the rest of the VOL NATION who dare to say anything constructive or positive.

Gosh, now I feel so guilty for being a supportive VOL fan all these years. I must’ve been hallucinating. Boohoohoo.

This is a Hall of Fame post!

I wonder how jeff_aint_no_richmond aka 1percent brain usage will put a negative spin on this

I am sure everyone will be called a "sycophant".
Really wish he would turn the page on his "Word of the Day" calendar and find a new one to use.

On topic, a very good read.

Sophmore from Coalfield? Just gotta say WOW....Perhaps there is a 8th grader out there that should be given a shot? My how desperate UT has become.

Just Saying

Wanna lay some bucks for that last game of the season, for say, the next 30 years?

Didn't think so.

Written on Coalfield lineman Zach Stewart commits to Tennessee:

in response to 10seVol85_Part_Deux:

You have just defined "fair-weather fan." Since you aren't actually a Vol fan, maybe you should go somewhere else? I understand Bama is having a pretty good run right now. Maybe you should become a Tide fan? When they fall on hard times again (which they eventually will), you can move over to whomever is winning then.

In the meantime, you can work on your character issues.

Probably been a Ravens fan since Feb 3.....

Written on Coalfield lineman Zach Stewart commits to Tennessee:

I would encourage all of you to head out to Rochelle Field on a Friday night to watch Zach play. Coalfield fans will welcome you with open arms.

MORE BS FORM A LOSER? Yeah, you prove that with every post you make.
On topic, he obviously doesn't associate himself with the idiots Hopson did. As for Stokes, a year with Maymon in the line-up will get him the stats to be noticed.

Written on UT's coach the right man for Peyton Manning:

And THANK YOU as well!

Written on Peyton Manning on Butch Jones: 'He has it all mapped out':

in response to SevenT:

Peyton should stick with resurrecting his career in Denver and selling cars on TV commercials because nobody is going to buy any of this jazz.

Jones was about 5th on the Vol wish list behind Chuckie and Charlie Strong and everyone who follows this program knows this is a dud/thud hire just like Dooley and Kiffin were duds.

Since Fulmer is gone the program has fallen apart,

Just Saying

Timmy Couch selling used cars in Hyden these days or did he buy a franchise of meth labs down there?
Yeah, there is your all world QB.......
You wanna talk football programs? Go find a Vandy fan so it can be somewhat equal.

Written on Former Vol Bernard King elected to Basketball Hall of Fame:

in response to trl_x:

Actually it was 42. A true freshman in his very first game scored 42 points.

I remember listening to that game in my mom's kitchen as she was cooking. John Ward's play-by-play with King playing was electrifying.

The story about the game in Memorial Coliseum was told to me by John Ward himself, as I was fortunate enough to sit at the table during a UT function with him. He went on and on about how great a player King was, and he saw some of the best! Also for any REAL UK fans, he also talked about one of his best friends, Cawood Ledford. Could you imagine getting to listen to those two talk basketball! On topic, Congratulations to the best that ever wore the BIG ORANGE!
