Billy, don't be a tool, nobody likes a tool.

Written on Vanderbilt coach James Franklin says 'people are offended' that he stands up for his school:

in response to VolzsFan:

Franklin pumped life into a doormat. He is winning bigger than they have ever won since the 1920's. He is a great recruiter, great coach and when he gets to a place with real resources, he will win a National Title. UT missed out on a guy that is the best coach in Vandy history. He WILL win a National Title before Jones. Not at Vandy but somewhere else.

If UT would have hired him we might get back to several rungs below where the Hall of Famer had it. That would still be better than most programs and way better than UT is and will be doing. Franklin was the obvious choice and UT missed again.

Stupidity is the only thing you EVER bring to this site. I just roll my eyes whenever I see your name, I don't even have to read your junk.

Written on Vols' defense carries the day at Neyland Stadium scrimmage:

Come one Rev, don't be so full of youself. All I know is tackling and fundementals, just like the coaches have been preaching. If you got those down you can be a pretty good defense.

Written on Marlon Walls says hospital visit with Katelyn Norman changed his life :

What a great story, as I wipe my eyes.

Written on Vols lose to Alabama, will play the waiting game for NCAA tournament:

in response to Orangeblood13:

Pearl had them in the championship game 2 x if I remember
Do you even watch ut sports or just comment when they lose?

We never played on Sunday with Pearl either.

I wonder if Sonny Bono aky Skeeter Mcbee will get a haircut and shave that scraggly stash prior to Senior Day.

Just Saying

You don't have even a small amount of class, just saying.

Written on Vols get needed win at Auburn, 82-75:

in response to johnlg00:

Richardson, Moore, McBee, and Hall had 29 points last night. If those guys can contribute at anywhere near that rate every game, the Vols will be fine.

John, always good to read your posts, you always bring something, and it's from someone who actually knows a little about basketball.

Written on Cool customers: Tennessee's hot streak anchored by calm coach:

I agree with Collegegrovebilly and miketn6, pick and rolls are working better, but in my opinion the post rolling to the basket has been open mostly all year, just didn't get the ball delivered. If Yemi can get some confidence on offense he will be a force when Jarnell is resting, he is missing some chippies.

Written on Mark Wiedmer: Does UT control its NCAA destiny?:

The whole field is watered down this year, selection committee has to pick 68 teams. If favorites in smaller conferences win their respective tournaments and Tennessee wins last 3 games, I believe they are in regardless of SEC tournament. Just my opinion.

Written on Fourth overtime Golden for Vols, 93-85:

Wow, what a game and we won also! Can't say enough about teams grit and toughness. Go Big Orange!

KNS staff, if ya'll would police this site and forbid comments like this on a Tennessee site, it would be much better and your readership would definately go up.Real fans don't come here much because of phooey like this posted at an alarming rate, true fans just stay away from such foolishness. One would think this would have already been figured out!

Written on Mike Strange: Suddenly, beating Texas A&M is a big deal:

Georgia beat them in Texas, so can Tennessee. Attack, attack, attack on offense and defense.

Great example of Tennessee eating Florida fan's lunch 24/7. Just can't get enough Tennessee.

Written on Trae Golden going in the right direction :

He has been playing good since the games off for the hamstring, I think the rest has helped him more than anything, just my opinion though.

Written on Never Better: Vols score biggest victory ever against Kentucky, 88-58 :

in response to bigdisbig:

This is the same Vol team that got beat by Memphis, Ga. and stomped in the dirt by Ole Miss at home and everyone is crowing over beating a weak Ky. team. I still say Cuonzo is a lower level coach who gets lucky every now and then. The guys played a great game today....probably the best of the year in spite of a weak coach.

Any true Tennessee fan knows the significance of beating Kentucky in basketball, you just proved your no Tennessee fan so your opinion doesn't count. The best thing for you to do is go on somewhere else.

Written on No Noel alters dynamic of Tennessee-Kentucky game :

I believe the best thing that's happened to Golden was the time off. He looks rested, intergized and is playing like it.

Written on No Noel alters dynamic of Tennessee-Kentucky game :

in response to ProfessionalHandicapper:

Ha ha.. brag about beating a Vandy team that just lost Ezeli, Taylor and Jenkins to the NBA draft plus all 5 starters are gone and Martin almost lost on a last second tipin in Knoxville and UT scored 18 points in the second half in Nashville. Enjoy another NIT without Pearl. Vandy won their opener in Baseball yesterday, how did the Vols do? Vandy ranked in the Top 5 again. UT cant spell Top 5 without Fulmer and Pearl.

You act like a 2 year old.

Written on No Noel alters dynamic of Tennessee-Kentucky game :

I knew Tennessee was going to win when the refs wouldn't let Calapari officiate like they did in Lexington.

Written on Vols find recipe for victory on the road, 58-46 :

in response to UkJarhead:

This rivalry always better when both teams are playing well. Glad the Vols are on a roll. We have boneheaded fans on both sides that say stupid things like Vols4Ever. Let's just enjoy the rivalry without all the hate. GBO

Yes, but Vols4Ever is on his teams own site, who invited you?

Written on Vols have reason to smile, 54-53 over Alabama :

in response to smokeygrowl:

This was still hard to watch. Most boring basketball since o 'neil Its truly hard to watch this team. Its not fun at all. We don't get up and down like we could wasting Kenny Halls athletic ability as well as other players like Moore. Always let the D get back and setup then one player dribbles the ball to death tryin to get shot off.Stokes has a terrible habit of putting ball on floor before he shoots. He has to take a dribble every time to gather himself Martin should have broken this habit in practice. Im grateful for the win don't get me wrong but the coaching is horrible. McBee looks like anything but an SEC guard nowadays. Golden has regressed to the point that he can't make a free throw when we need it. I suppose a real point guard would help tremendously. i thought Moore was a point guard but he isn't either. Boring team.

Damn, glad Tennessee won, would hate to here you if they would have lost.

Written on Cody Clay chooses Division II school over Tennessee:

in response to easleychuck:

My response to you and the "some of us" that you are speaking for should quit showing your complete lack of knowledge about how the recruiting process works.

Point 1: Teams that have been winning usually do well in the succeeding year of recruiting.

Point 2: Big time football programs that have had 4 head coaches over a 6 year period have to rebuild their entire recruiting process.

Point 3: Assistant coaches do the legwork in recruiting....just how many assistants do YOU think (I will help you....around 45 or so)have been on the road representing UT during the past few years. Relationships are a huge part of the recruiting process. Coach Jones and all but one of his assistants have been on the job a few weeks.

Point 4: All bigtime football powers have amazing facilities. UT just completed their upgrades recently...so many of the kids that have been "recruits" for the past few years never saw the finished product.

Based on what Coach Jones has been doing in the areas of fence mending with the former players, etc. I challenge you to produce any evidence that he is not working hard to bring in "some good recruits" to the university.

Last time I checked, anyone pays for their seats are entitled to well seats. Your decision to pay $5 for a hotdog is oon you.

Save your breath easleychuck, fans have a right to voice their opinion, no matter how stupid they are.

Written on Cody Clay chooses Division II school over Tennessee:

in response to Rumblefish:

Nobody expects any recruiting class at any school to just "materialize".

However, some of us (myself included) expect the head coach at Tennessee to work hard and bring in some good recruits by doing so. Some of us (myself included) have bought enough tickets and $5 hot dogs to contribute to the new/fancy facilities at UT to help bring in good recruits.

Pityfull, just pityfull. Between fans like you and the trolls this is not even an interesting site to visit anymore.

Oh yea, Go Irish!!!

Bama does not have a single coach with ties to the program. Has no bearing, you can either coach and develop players or you cannot. Roll Tide

Written on Geoff Calkins: Killing Tennessee series wrong move for Memphis:

in response to mike#208050:

You obviously have never attended a Memphis game in the FedEX forum, so I will give you a pass on your ignorance about attendance. The University of Memphis has pretty much locked down the local talent in Memphis. Hence, Memphis doesn't need to play UT to prove anything.

Two top players this year from Memphis, Johnathon Williams III and JuJuan Johnson went to Missouri and Marquette instead of UT. Really? Do you think Memphis kids care about UT basketball? You might want to re-check the rankings of this recruiting class, Nick King & Austin Nichols are both ranked ahead of Robert Hubbs now.

Not only do NBA scouts attend almost every Memphis home game, but most of the Grizzly players do too. The pickup games are legendary in the off season! Allen Iverson's cousin is one of our new top recruits. We even have a former NBA all-star on the coaching staff.

There are so many former UT players currently in the NBA that I completely forgot about Tobias. Sorry, did he even attend any classes at UT? Story I heard was that he was just visiting anyway.

I believe it is UT that is struggling in the classroom with it's basketball program. I know you lost at least one scholarship while Bruce was Coaching. There is no such problems at Memphis. We have a high graduation rate. Two of the new recruits (King & Austin) are carrying 4pt grade point averages and were also offered scholarships to Duke.

I am sure I will enjoy the Big Orange beat down Friday because I will be there. I enjoyed both beat downs last year too. I was in Maui last year when Memphis won without a bigman left for the last 17 minutes of the game including all three overtimes. Next you will tell me to fear the orange pants! That just isn't going to happen dude. You are a little excited aren't you?

Hope you recover and enjoy the rest of the season.

GO Tigers GO!

Mike, enjoy Memphis getting boat raced tonight by Tennessee.

Written on Butch Jones' staff taking shape; Tee Martin reportedly has offer :

in response to CCLC:

Seriously, Jancek as defensive coordinator would be more than enough. Martinez too? If Jones can somehow find room for John Fabris to coordinate special teams I might never stop smiling.

Smiling like you were when Alabama took you out in the Championship game?

Written on Players, recruits respond to hiring :

in response to chrisvol4ut:

Dude, shut your pie hole. Anyone with half a brain can see that the administration failed miserably in this hire. Some of you guys seem to enjoy coating everything in powdered sugar. This was a bad hire considering what we were promised. I'll support this coach and this team, but don't be surprised if we aren't back in this same situation in 3 years.

Are you a damn idiot or what, did you not know we were turned down about 5 times before this hire, fools on here never cease to amaze.

Written on Players, recruits respond to hiring :

in response to usnavyvolfan__times_free_press_can_shove_it:

Yes...bring back the Troop!

The reason Auburn fired him is he is tied to NCAA investigation for illegal recruitment. We sure don't need any of that.

Written on As Tennessee resets coaching search, Cincinnati's Butch Jones appears to be target :

in response to gobigorange5090:

How about you whiners shutting the hell up and giving the guy a chance! Enough already!! If all you're going to do is whine and moan, UT doesnt need you!

Here, here I agree with you.

Written on As Tennessee resets coaching search, Cincinnati's Butch Jones appears to be target :

Bottom line here folks, we want to win and win the right way. So lets get behind BJ and give him a chance. He has proven he wins everywhere he goes, and if there's a chance he leaves us, then that only means he has done a great job at Tennessee.

Doug Matthews says that's not true. I don't think you know more than him.

Written on Tennessee's coach search turns to Oklahoma State's Mike Gundy :

in response to ashvol7:

If I am not mistaken Butch Davis was fired at N.C. If you check back further I think he was in trouble before he came to N.C. I couldn't believe it when they hired him.

Butch Davis supposedly has a letter from the NCAA clearing him of any wrongdoing at North Carolina.

Written on Tennessee's coach search turns to Oklahoma State's Mike Gundy :

in response to DeltaCharlie3:

I got news for you people. Just like last time, when you ended up with the La Tech doofus, nobody of significance wants this job. You're destined to get a Mike Gundy or Jimbo Fisher type, at best. And I've never heard of this Butch Jones dude. Strong would be okay, but he won't beat UF and he knows it, because he was on the inside so many years.

Your eat up with Tennessee aren't you?

Written on Tough enough? No choice for Vols against Georgetown :

Defense will be the deciding factor, If Tennessee can lock down and hold their own in rebounding, then they have a good chance of winning.

Written on Evan Woodbery: Nine possible candidates for UT's coaching search :

in response to DeltaCharlie3:

It's strange how some of you latch onto something and become obsessed. Gruden would be a big name, but he's far from the best choice for this job. But y'all go on and keep obsessing on Gruden. After year 3 when he's 15-21, you'll be lamenting what a mistake it was to hire a NFL guy with no college experience.

Shut the hell up and worry about your own team.

UAB 98,205
Florida 106,138
N. Illinois 99,539
Miss State 98,239
Alabama 106138
Wyoming 99,489
Kentucky 102,388

I hope everyone is enjoying their predictions and their change!!! LOL!!!!

Written on Coaching roundup: Charles Davis says he thinks Gruden would listen to Vols :

Written on Reports: Arkansas has made an offer to Jon Gruden:

in response to VolzsFan:

The fact that you think anyone would make UT relevant in 5 years makes you one of the fantasy land expectations fans. Tenn was not relevant in the vast majority of it's history pre Phil. Why on earth would anyone think they will be relevant for decades at a school with leadership issues, money problems, expectation problems, NCAA problems and most importantly an in state talent problem?

You all wanted this change. I told everyone the stupidity of it all. You got it now embrace it. It is what you wanted. Enjoy another 5-7 or 4-8. That is your future regardless of who they hire or what you want it to be.

Whats your purpose? To come on here and be negative all the time? I don't think you have ever posted anything positive.I as a Volunteer Fan want to have hope, that is part of the fun of it to me. I remember driving home from a game one Saturday probably late 80's, and asking my wife, reckon we'll ever see Tennessee win a National Championship? Point is we had hope and it happened. I perfer the glass half full.
