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

Difficult to actually pick the record...a couple of good/bad bounces of the ol oblong ball could be the difference between 7-5 or better and 5-7 or worse..won't be long before the answer is revealed..

Bones never lie.

never knew smart kids were that easily impressed...LOL

Written on Ejections will be jarring penalty for 'targeting' hits in 2013:

a good intention rule indeed, but after witnessing some of the rotten officiating last year i believe that it opens the door for the refs to help out some of the home teams win if they are in trouble

Written on Mississippi suspends G Henderson indefinitely:

million dollar shot... 5 cent head.

Written on UT releases self-reported minor NCAA rules violations:

3 dollars is half a gallon of gas....big whoop!!

Hope his angles of pursuit improved over the spring or it'll take him 3 months to get off campus.

Written on Father of Trae Golden says reports of academic problems are 'totally inaccurate':

Somebody is not being totally honest, May never know which it is..

Written on Vols rally in ninth but fall to Georgia 8-7:

Stealing home is a rarety in the majors, even rarer to do it twice in the college game.

Written on Tennessee RB Marlin Lane out for 'disciplinary reasons':

in response to CoverOrange:

Why didn't CBJ just say so in the first place? What purpose was served by the obfuscation?

I'm surprised the word police at GVXTRA didn't edit that word....Someone there must have googled the meaning..LOL

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

Standing up for your school is mandatory, being a buttski is a choice...

Written on ESPN levels new set of allegations against already-embattled Auburn:

The breaking story on cheating etc is usually never correct on first print, i would guess the truth is somewhere in the middle of this first edition..

Written on Report: Former Auburn players detail payments, academic fraud, drug culture, criminal cover-ups:

I'd like to comment, but i haven't got permission to do so from navyvol-thank-rand paul something or other yet

Written on Butch Jones says of event countering Nick Saban: 'I'll do anything in Tennessee':

in response to usnavyvolfan__times_free_press_can_shove_it:

I dunno... I always miss the point of you being here.

I'm sorry to offend you sir, i was under the impression this was a open discussion site, since i don't think i said anything offensive i will just say thanks for your service to our country but just be reminded you are protecting our right for free speech among other things...sorry i took advantage of that.

Written on Butch Jones says of event countering Nick Saban: 'I'll do anything in Tennessee':

Maybe i'm missing the big picture here, but how does this benefit either school?

Written on Like Bruce Pearl, most coaches survive NCAA show-cause orders :

in response to John_10065:

I am not suprised to see some of the posters here talking about bring back Pearl.

There's never a peep from any of them when the program is winning under Martin then they show up like carrion beetles picking over a dead corpse after a disappointing end of the season.

Overall it hasn't been a bad couple of years considering the circumstances. You guys sound like whiny UK fans when they aren't in the final 4 every year.

And sound like Vol fans when we don't win 12 games in football every year

Written on Could Tyler Bray be the steal of the 2013 NFL draft?:

in response to jack4444:

Was Ryan Leaf the steal of the '98 draft?

Yes, and he continues to steal....

Written on Season ends for Vols in NIT opener, 75-67:

Mercered..hope these don't make the new words list on google...

Written on Season ends for Vols in NIT opener, 75-67:

in response to jimr07:

I usually do not make comments but how embarrassing can it be..cue the kats retribution from the way we bashed them for losing some school called morris

I laughed and slapped my leg with delight after ky lost last night...now i feel a little guilty for doing that.

Written on Lady Vols turned over and around by Kentucky's pressure, 78-65:

in response to golfman1975:

At the end of the first half there was 2 fouls called on one play. How can you have a block on a drive...pass the ball and hit a layup and get another foul? There were 20 fouls called on Ky and 17 on the LV's. Ky shot outside all day while we drove it inside and got fouled.

31 turnovers, 26 ftas to 12 ftas and still lose by double digits..enough said.

Written on Lady Vols turned over and around by Kentucky's pressure, 78-65:

in response to AHOUSE:

You are right, can't blame the ref's for the loss, but they sure should send them back to school. It seemed like they had the whistle in the back pocket or somewhere close when KY was fouling.

That can be said about every game played in the sec both mens and womens, but 31 turnovers, 15 more fts attempted and still get beat by double digits tells me the the team did not compete...Just my opinion.

Written on Lady Vols turned over and around by Kentucky's pressure, 78-65:

Box score Tenn 22-26 fts...Ky 7-12 got beat by a team that wanted it more can't blame the refs for this one..maybe we can beat them in the tourney.

Written on Just McRae can't save the day for UT against Georgia, 78-68:

Georgia's game plan was to cut off Goldens driving to the basket and keep Stokes from getting the ball in the paint and they accomplished both, but were helped by the guards not even trying to get the ball to Stokes.

Written on Just McRae can't save the day for UT against Georgia, 78-68:

in response to jt45:

True and that smack talking Henderson was 3 of 18 on three pointers. LOL !

Priceless!

Written on Just McRae can't save the day for UT against Georgia, 78-68:

Good example of how hard it is to beat a home team...Miss St. takes out Ole Miss...

Written on Just McRae can't save the day for UT against Georgia, 78-68:

I hope that wasn't WD that was cuffed and lead out of the stands at the end of the game... ;)

Written on Tim Spencer interviews for Vols' running back job:

in response to traderjoe:

Sounds like a plan. Is Cheek just power hungary, anal, or stupid? Inquiring minds would like to know.

YES to all the above.

Written on Saban: 4 arrested Alabama players dismissed from team:

I was thinking FFL.....Felon For Life

Written on Georgia delivers a punch in gut to Vols, 68-62:

This team reminds me of Wade Houston teams, but at least Wade brought allan with him..Martin has brought nothing so far...

Written on Tennessee governor says Vols must fill Neyland:

in response to HooRay_Vol:

I hate going to the stadium, trying to find a decent place to park that doesn't cost a fortune, fight the crowd, get to my seat and find someone is already sitting there, but it turns out that the other people in the row ARE SO DAMN FAT that there is barely enought room of our two seats, then we sit shoulder to shoulder or have to lean forward the whole game to see a team lose to VANDY or KY. No thank you.

And for all you obese losers.....LOSE SOME WEIGHT!

I bet you are a really wonderful person to sit beside, slim....NOT

Written on Henderson imperfect poster boy for upstart Rebels:

I watched the ole miss uk game on espn tuesday night, the key to shutting up this big mouth is to beat them..He and his mohawk didn't have much to say after the game...

Written on UT's prayers answered as Vanderbilt misses chances to win at buzzer:

I say looking ugly in a win is better than looking pretty in a loss..LOL

Written on UT's prayers answered as Vanderbilt misses chances to win at buzzer:

I've watched a lot of sec games this year and they have all been ugly to some extent...

Written on Dallas Cowboys hire Derek Dooley as wide receivers coach :

I wonder if he will be trying to get the cboys to draft Patterson and Hunter?? Smart money says no...

Written on John Adams: Butch Jones' parent policy a bold move:

That's like giving your number to ex-girlfriends and saying call me if you need to talk... :)

Written on Cuonzo Martin contacts SEC on how Jarnell Stokes is officiated :

Tried to get a tech called on him but couldn't??? Never heard that said before..

Written on UT tells students not to paint Rock to welcome recruits:

May not be that big a deal, most can't read anyway.... :) (only half kidding unfortunately)

Written on Vols fall into a Steele trap, 68-65:

If Stokes doesn't get the led out, it's going to be a long sec stretch i'm afraid.

Written on Vols lose to Ole Miss, 92-74 in SEC opener:

in response to jakethevolguy:

This is the worst coaching hire since Dooley. Where's Pearl when you need him?

Selling dry goods out of a covered wagon i heard..LOL

Written on Cody Clay chooses Division II school over Tennessee:

in response to StoneJackBaller:

I'd be willing to bet that this kid smokes pot on a regular basis and fears he would have to give it up to play in the SEC. At Azusa Pacific, the name alone almost invites dope smokers. He's making a lifestyle decision. We're better off without him.

You only have to give it up in the sec if you get caught...;)

Written on Mark Wiedmer: Should SEC fans root for Bama?:

Kinda like asking, if you were neck deep in phooey, and someone threw a bucket of snot at you would you duck? In other words i will not root for bummer or notty dame.

Written on Father says Maymon's knee is fine, declines to comment on specifics of injury setbacks :

in response to johnlg00:

Just to be clear, I'm not saying anything about the condition of Jeronne's knee, since I don't know any more about that than anybody else. I'm just saying that Tim is sometimes rather free with his opinions, and it is not implausible to me that it is simply a matter of Jeronne not being in shape yet and CCM is just sandbagging about when or if Jeronne will be, in his opinion, in shape to play.

Yes it could be knee + bad conditioning + sandbagging + Tim and on and on...heck he may play tonight..LOL

Written on Father says Maymon's knee is fine, declines to comment on specifics of injury setbacks :

in response to johnlg00:

Maymon's father Tim has always had his own take on things. It was said when Jeronne first came here that Dad was a major influence in Jeronne leaving Marquette because he objected to how Jeronne was being used. Let's just wait to see how things work out before we jump to conclusions.

That makes more sense than just a knee problem..thanks for the additional info johnlg..

Written on Father says Maymon's knee is fine, declines to comment on specifics of injury setbacks :

in response to govolsn3:

There is more to this than injuries or being in shape. Just stay tune and see. I sure hope it is not going where it usually goes on the hill but it always raises its ugly head just like it did a couple of years back. Why these young men can't just be college students is beyond me. They have the world right in the palm of their hands and just can't make decisions for the benefit of the rest of their adult lives. Kenny Hall learned it last year. Just hope this doesn't turn into another front page headline.

Exactly right, this just doesn't pass the smell test, i'm not sure what the real problem is but i do know there is really no logical reason to keep Maymons knee problems under lock and key..My opinion only.

Written on Mel Kiper recommends another year for Tyler Bray:

It may not be what Tyler wants, if he comes in with the attitude that he displayed sometimes with Dooley, Jones may help him make the decision to go pro....Jones has that "my way or the highway"look which most of these athletes nowadays.

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

He made the trip to check out the job..and turned it down, maybe he isn't convinced that the program is headed in the right direction..Just a thought.

Written on New UT coach Butch Jones in Knoxville:

The first 2 years of coach Jones tenure will no doubt be unspectacular by most vol fans standards(not losing seasons perhaps but not the 12-0,11-1 seasons expected) but after the 3 yr that's when the proof will be in the pudding as they say..i think he will be a really good coach if given the alloted time.
