Written on How many wins will the Vols have this season?:

in response to DawgDayAfternoon:

It's 4, the same as the Dawgs streak against the Big Gray will be on October 6th - 4!

No coach does less with more talent than Mark Richt. That's your streak,

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

You are thinking of the University of Felons in Gainesville, Florida.

This comment may be inappropriate. Reveal this comment.

Add to that Oct.5, 19 and 26; plus Nov. 2, 9 and 23, and there's the reality of the 4-8 that's coming. If Stoops and the Cats can find a wide receiver to insert at QB, you can make that 3-9.

No coach does less with more talent than Richt. He'll prove that to you again this year.

EIGHT = The number of Gators who will be arrested before the end of this season. They are well on their way.

Written on Tennessee's football uniforms will have minor changes in 2013:

in response to VolzsFan:

They will look like the same sub 500 squad regardless of what they wear...and will for decades to come.

You are thinking of the Gators. Even Vandy's recruiting class is rated better right now. Meanwhile TN is #1 and is followed by Miami and Fla State. Poor little Muskrat just can't keep up (except in player arrests).

Written on Poll: Where in the rankings will Tennessee's 2014 recruiting class finish?:

in response to Vols789:

Are you new to understanding the game of football and recruiting? You are obviously a troll who is threatened by the Vol Nation or you wouldn't be on this site! It's a long way until signing day, top 5 is very possible. No worse than top 10.

His team, however, is ranked outside of the top 20 and is behind Vanderbilt. Meanwhile, in-state rivals Miami and Florida State are killing it. Muskrat just doesn't have what it takes (although he's pretty good at having players who get arrested).

Written on Govols247: Fla. lineman commits to Tennessee :

in response to 9willbesofine:

(This comment was removed by the site staff.)

You might want to check the current recruiting rankings. Look near the top. Like the very top.

P.S. You won't see your Muskrat's team there.

Written on Vanderbilt plans to go from 'good to great':

in response to ALWAYSSEEITTHROUGH:

(This comment was removed by the site staff.)

Franklin coached Candy has only beaten one team with a winning record since he's been there. They have nothing. Maybe they could schedule Elon 10 times a season?

Written on Butch Jones wants a preseason practice open to public:

in response to DeltaCharlie3:

He wants the fans to see what he's seeing to temper expectations. Come on out folks, see your 5-7 Vols.

Smart move.

I can see that you are still addled by the beat down that Louisville put on you. Better get used to it with Muskrat as coach.

Written on Vols commit Wharton's hardest sell on UT might be teammate:

in response to 9willbesofine:

(This comment was removed by the site staff.)

Between 4 and 8 Gators arrested this season for sure.

Written on David Climer: Perception of Vanderbilt changes quickly:

in response to Crafty_Commodore_4118:

(This comment was removed by the site staff.)

Stop scheduling high school teams like Elon and U Mass and that record will come back to reality pretty fast.

Written on Four Vanderbilt football players suspended amid sex crimes investigation:

in response to CantStandCantStandSaban:

James Franklin hasn't weighed in on Twitter yet? That's weird.

His ship is adrift and he's looking to anchor down!

Written on Peyton Manning 'looking forward to supporting' Butch Jones:

in response to SevenT:

I am sure Dr. Jamie Ann Naughright would disagree that Manning has any class at all.

Just Saying

If you want to see a textbook example of "no class" see: Calipari.

Written on Poll: Which position on Tennessee's offense are you most concerned about next season?:

I'm much more concerned about the defense.

Written on With 15 commitments, Vols are halfway home in 2014 recruiting race:

in response to GeauxTeamScribe:

(This comment was removed by the site staff.)

Your fear and ignorance is strong...and the only way Franklin and Vandy keep winning is if they keep scheduling powerhouses such as Elon and U Mass every year.

Written on Govols247: Update on Marlin Lane's status with Tennessee Vols football :

in response to shiftb:

(This comment was removed by the site staff.)

Lack of depth at that position makes it a big deal.

Written on Ja'Wuan James learns to lead Vols senior lineman becomes more vocal:

in response to rtrchatt:

Ja'Wuan how is that decision to flip from Bama to UT working out? Losing season after losing seasons...Undoubtedly some of your Bama buddies from Jawja have shown you all those rings....

Typical Bammer. No class at all. No wonder they displayed that trophy at a Walmart. I guess the local trailer parks were already booked.

Written on Ja'Wuan James learns to lead Vols senior lineman becomes more vocal:

in response to DeltaCharlie3:

Who?

He's the lineman that your favorite team has been recruiting really hard...and failed to get.

Written on 'Test of maturity' coming on how UT football players used their spring break:

in response to DukeDeLuca2:

Who's our coach this week? I lose track.

I bet you forget a lot of things. Of course, the list of things you never knew in the first place is very long.

Written on With spring break looming, UT coaches say much work still to be done:

Commited to Indiana...then committed to LSU...then went to Notre Dame and quit there because of competition. No thanks.

Written on Tennessee football scholarship roster projected to climb to 83 players in fall:

in response to SevenT:

Joker was fired last year...Joker is on the staff at Florida.....Mark Stoops is Kentucky's Coach...SHEESH

McFly

Sounds like KY doesn't stand behind their coaches then. Derp.

Written on Tennessee football scholarship roster projected to climb to 83 players in fall:

in response to SevenT:

Jones is going to win with players recruited by Dooley.

Just shows that UT does not stand behind their coaches. Jones will fall by the axe just like Fulmer and Dooley.

Enough Said

The butt hurt is strong in this one.

Written on Tennessee opens spring football with rapid adjustment to Butch Jones' style:

in response to SevenT:

Time for Dooley Part II.

I wonder what the Vegas line is for the number of seasons Davis will have until he is fired?

Your screen name must reflect your IQ.

Written on Robert Gillespie of West Virginia leading candidate for RB coach :

in response to rtrchatt:

Win 5/6 games a yr and the only kids you can "pull" are the ones the big boys recuit as plan D. Makes no difference who is making the pitch. If you are not winning on the field, you
are not winning many recruiting battles in Jan/Feb.

Parole Tide!

Written on Robert Gillespie of West Virginia leading candidate for RB coach :

I don't car where he is from. I only care if he does a good job as a coach and as a recruiter.

Written on In welcome letter, Butch Jones says parents of UT players can call anytime:

in response to 9willbesofine:

(This comment was removed by the site staff.)

Losing to that 3* coach is going to hurt you a lot isn't it?

Written on John Adams: CAK QB Charlie High still thinking big despite recruiting rejections :

in response to volfan1202:

Hey Butch Jones, please do not recruit this very talented local young QB.

Please keep reaching for the stars and get us some more 2 star players like the volleyball playing tight end JUCO you just snagged out of California that has a whopping record of 1 touchdown.

Heck, if you recruit really hard, you might be able to get us a one star chess champion from podunk Idaho.

I'll give you a big hint: GRUDEN isn't coming!

Written on John Adams among 3 selected for induction into Tennessee Sports Writers Hall of Fame :

I guess its true...everyone does get a trophy these days.

Written on Terry Fair 'nervous, but extremely excited' to join Butch Jones' support staff:

in response to rtrchatt:

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

Golden Domes vs Mobile Homes.

Written on Butch Jones filling out staff with graduate assistants:

in response to albert63:

First, who?

Typical Gator. That's all you've got.

Written on 9-win season, top 15 recruiting class building Vanderbilt's optimism for 2013:

in response to rtrchatt:

What kind of "luck" does rocky flop need to win 6 in 2013? All kinds.......

Golden Dome vs. Mobile Home.

Written on Tennessee football in 2012: Derek Dooley is at a loss; Butch Jones focuses on future :

in response to CCLC:

There was a lot of chest bumping and laughing when uT landed DaRick in a two for one deal ..... stealing a prized recruit. Meanwhile Georgia landed the best player out of Memphis that went on to a great career Between the Hedges. No one laughing now.
just sayin'
there were no police foot stomped while posting this blog.
still sayin'

No one does LESS with more talent than Mark Right.

Written on Vols' Butch Jones disputes talk of riding on Brian Kelly's successes:

in response to SevenT:

The question on everyone's mind....

Is Butch Jones an upgrade over Dooley?

A better question....why does Kentucky pretend to field a football team every year?

Written on Vanderbilt expects a Tyler Bray-like QB from N.C. State in Music City Bowl:

For the past 2 years Vanderbilt still has not beaten even one team with a record above .500. I guess this game is their big chance.

Written on USC gave Lane Kiffin loan for house, but there's a catch:

in response to ProfessionalHandicapper:

I wish Kiffin well. He did like most Americans took a better job for more pay and now lives in a dream home on the beach. Employers have no loyalty so why all the hate for Kiffin? The man has done well for himself. I really doubt $500,000 will wipe out his $4 million per year salary although I'm sure there are some hoping so. Wish bad Karma receive bad Karma.

You should have a lot of bad karma then based upon your past posting history.

Written on Darin Hinshaw will be QB coach at Cincinnati :

in response to Colts_VolFan:

Unfortunately I think he gets his full buy out no matter what.

According to this article only Dooley and Chaney have guaranteed buyouts:

Written on Tee Martin turns down Tennessee homecoming, will stay at Southern Cal :

Time to move on. No one should fault him for sticking to a committment.

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

in response to ArVol:

Petrino will never be cheaper than he is now. To my knowledge he has never been in trouble with the NCAA for rules violations.
With UT's resources and a good recruiting coordinator it would be on like donkey kong.

Petrino has allegedly been hired by Idaho:

http://espn.go.com/college-football/s...

Written on New York City could be nexus of Tennessee's coaching search for next few days :

I hope not. I heard an interview about recruits recently and most of them didn't even know who Golden was when his name was mentioned.

Written on UT coaching roundup: Kentucky's hiring of Mark Stoops could be relevant :

in response to luke255#536431:

What about Jim Tressel??? We should have hired him the day his year suspension was up. Either him or Petrino the only PROVEN coaches that we could count on to get the vols back!! FYI anyone who has used their brain or used google would know Gruden signed a new contract this year with ESPN, not a proven college coach and still no idea why people are drooling over something that is NEVER going to happen.

Tressell has a show cause until 2017. As school that just got its probation extended by 2 years like UT just did and a school that had to fire its baskeball coach for lying to the NCAA needs no part of him.

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

Butch Jones is one of the few coaches that Dooley beat. No thanks.

Written on Mark Wiedmer: Derek Dooley saga continues, though sequel not likely:

in response to ProfessionalHandicapper:

I told you people 3 weeks ago Vandy would be favored in this game. The Vegas Line today is Vandy -4 over UT. I can't ever remember Vandy opening as the favorite in this game. What more needs to be said about the depths this program has fallen.

Let us know when Vandy beats a team with a winning record. They didn't last year and the have not done it this year. If they beat TN they still won't. If not for scheduling powerhouses like Elon, Presbyterian or Massachusetts they wouldn't have winning seasons.

Written on Vols' Thomas' 'flow' pointing to NFL:

in response to ProfessionalHandicapper:

Quit crying and get tougher skin. Being a vandy fan we have listened to UT junk for years. Now we can talk a little smack UT fans are weak. Start wiining if you wanna shut up the other fans, until then take your medicine like the rest of us. Bottom Dwellers..

Let us know when Vandy beats a team with a winning record. DERP!

Written on John Adams: No change too extreme on defense :

in response to UTistheOLEMISSoftheEAST:

Remember Joe....you're dealing with ut fans here. Not the brightest bunch of football fans on the planet.

Check your mirror if you want to see the dimmest of football fans.

Written on Tennessee's offense rescues defense against Troy, 55-48 :

in response to Wauconda_Vol:

Where in the world do we go from here?

Down.

Written on 5 Big Things against Troy:

in response to vq4nfo:

5th toughest schedule in the nation and we have so called fans that complain that we went 0-5 in the SEC games. Get used to it, Tennessee does not produce quality football players like Florida, Georgia, Alabama, Texas and California. It takes a lot to get guys to commit to the downtown campus of UT. Just visit the other SEC team campuses that beat UT this year.

I can think of a few coaches who could get those better commits. The one UT has now can't.

Written on Derek Dooley focused on improving defense, not blame:

in response to oldvoltimer62:

Dooley was qouted the other day (Doug Mathews)that his focus was entirely on the offense,not the defense.Now he is just trying to save a failing job.I think he should be focusing on his next job because I feel this one is coming to a screeching halt.

Correct.

Written on Justin Hunter says no hard feelings following Derek Dooley's criticism :

He probably really said "He's my coach (...for now...).
