Information on how to aid the victims of the deadly tornado in Oklahoma
IN EFFECT UNTIL MAY 21, 10:00 p.m.
issued for Knox, Anderson
A little flame is beginning to build in me about our TN Nation. I know it's doing the same in others too and it Feels Good!
We all want to holler and celebrate but you took us by surprise with Tennis we can't sing Rocky Top in the Stadium we've got to be quiet, which we're not use to but we are very Happy who knows maybe this kid can light a fire under Tennis in the US again. We'll be pulling for him, that's for sure!
To even come up with the Idea was stupid but have to admit that Pearl put a hurt on them and they got scared. Remember the good old days?
Just so you know Bruce Pearl would be over his probation and ready to start coaching UT again If we'd used our head and not panicked as Hamilton did and fired one of the best up and coming coaches ever at UT.
One thing to always remember, even though it's difficult to remember because these kids are made stars, in their own minds way before they are out of High School. They are kids, still immature and frankly look at the glory, the spotlight and not what's best move for them. It's hard to catch when you are offering scholarships in a competitive race to fill your roster but this needs to be taken into account more than you may think.
Hey for a school to spend hundreds of thousands on you with scholarships the least you should do is Study to show yourself approved don't you think? Some of these comments are pathetic.
you can tell it's "off season" people making comments when they have nothing to say. whoopsI'm guilty too. blush that's it until we win something.
If you have a ninth game and it is scheduled properly winning it could bolt you into the SEC Championship game & maybe a National playoff also we could easily keep our Alabama game seasonally.
Just remember many of the Great Quarterbacks were not close to being #1 draft pick. Tyler has the arm and I feel will make it Big Time.I pulling for him.
How we quickly forget what a feather it was in our cap when Tennessee under AD Doug Dickie went to almost 108,000 what a tool it was in recruiting and all the publicity we received on TV. Quickly the Big stadiums upgraded to make sure they were the biggest. Then it settled down. The last AD Hamilton cared only about image not Pride and cut us even more. Frankly we should always be the Biggest in something and I'd keep our stadium the Biggest in the SEC. Most Stadiums in the SEC will be over 100 in the near future and I feel when we get back on our feet we can easily fill it at 108.000 like we use to. It was Fun and impressive for an old Southern Town like Knoxville filling a stadium with that many fans. What a Great recruiting tool. Remember Pride helps make a Team and from a School that's pro-active means a lot!
The SEC should add a 9th game. The season is to short. Since Strength of Schedule is important again, and it should be we have got to begin playing other teams that are good, looking at our "Hamilton" schedule TN has stuck it's tail tween it legs and ran from playing anyone outside the SEC. Fulmer never did that. Change it NOW. Get back our Pride and stop thinking we will loose. WHAT IF WE WON? Along with a new coach we need a New attitude and don't be afraid to play anyone including Kiffin.
I think Bray will be a great Catch in the NFL after all this he, hopefully realizes the NFL is a serious business. He's got the Talent and in my opinion will make the team in Kansas. If not pack it up Bray and head to Canada. Frankly when all is said and done..."attitude" that is taking the game serious and respecting your fans means everything in College football. I remember back how Bray embarrassed me many times during his stay at UT.
Maybe there is something we don't know about with Bray. He definitely has the arm let's hope, for his sake he can use it. Wish he had stayed.
That's more like it and the better news; I believe it truly is "only the beginning". you ant seen nothing yet.
Look at Bray now. Much heavier looks mature and probably would be pretty darn good if he had stayed at UT. Take heed Kids sometimes you never know how good you have it until you don't have it anymore. He'll make it, I hope but it's going to take longer and it'll be harder for him.
Great for Stokes that he's staying and maybe even through his Senior year. Oh yeah he gets rebounds but from the Outside when you see him shooting under the basket and missing many times in one game there's a problem. The Pros saw it and obviously he needs to play more and spend a lot of time under the basket shooting. He made the correct decision by staying and a College Education at UT will go a long way in your life.
Tyler Bray 2nd round going to NY JETS! Hope he doesn't forget from where he came. He could be a good one.
Tyler Bray 2nd round and he'll go to NY Jets.
Bottom Line; Obviously Stokes doesn't care about UT basketball at all he's using it simply to get into the Pros. When it comes to money most say; you can't blame him however having character means something in life too and may come back to haunt him personally. BY the simple fact it is taking him so long to make up his mind, Some agent is filling his ear full of reasons to go NBA. The heck with values it's a money thing only. In my opinion.
Glad to hear a thought out comment From McRae When you turn pro you will be around those who are much better or equal to you. You have to have something extra and you develop that in College. Now he knows what it takes let's hope he can get it right during his Senior Year. We'll be pulling for him.
Glad to hear a thought out comment McRae You just turn pro. you will be around those who are much better than you. You have to have something extra and you develop that in College. Now he knows what it takes let's hope he can get it right during his Senior Year. We'll be pulling for him.
Stokes needs to stay at UT too. He has a lot to learn and one of the easiest things he has to learn is how to shoot the ball in the basket when under the goal. That's the first thing you learn when in Grade School. However he's looking at the Money and not the Education. Hope he will stay for his sake.
It's that time of Year when Sport writers have nothing to write about so let's do some polls. Here's one; How many Vols will show up early for practice this summer? Sometimes "no news" is better than "no news" let it rest.
Clearly these guys are not even close to being ready for the NBA. That said, I think it's more and more a Money thing now. today Kids are basically using College to get known then skip for the Money. Now you can't blame them but the real Pros finish their education before making the choice if they are honest with themselves. In the Future I wouldn't be surprised if Colleges have contracts and players would get paid. Frankly most kids are just that kids and could care less about an education until it's all over then they wish they had finished college. Being noticed and the Limelight is fun but it's not everything in life.
Hey don't get to excited but we got a good chance to be the final 2 but step by step.
I can't believe they considering leaving way to early for them.
Believe me he comes with some good Baggage and is worth hiring. Just think when Mom visits campus!. Good Luck Kid we're pulling for you.

Coach Pearl is one of a kind he quickly increased the image of TN and the National Coverage increased quickly too. He is recognized as one of the Best and If we don't rehire him we loose again. They only come around about ever 50 years. Be pro active for a change TN Get him!
If we had 4 more Meighan Simmons' we would be almost undefeatable the lady is non stop but we don't and if she's off we're off as a team. So let's enjoy playoffs while we can and hope for the best You never know what could happen.
think Bray has the potential to become a Great drop-back quarterback. and He's going to get his chance. I just hope he doesn't forget the Big Orange because he's probably going to be a great one UNLESS money goes to his head which it could.

It's how it is done Name recognition should get him the Job He knows what it takes and all of us have had to start somewhere. I wish him luck and just think when mommy visits the school.
The Kids need to realize Yeah they are kids and showed their immaturity when it comes to being a true athlete. The one thing they miss is "The Will To Win" Wheather you went to the NCAA Tourney or not you always should havel the pride to win. Doing what they did with the NIT shows they are young, caring more about their image than anything else and most importantly they don't have "The Will To Win". They care more about image than the school paying for their scholarships The University of Tennessee. Shame on YOU!
Honestly I can't tell you who won the NCAA two years ago and frankly don't care. Unless it's the SEC or TN. It last only a little while the same will be for Football when they get their short playoff which will cause nothing but controversy until they at least go to 8 teams which we should see around 2020 or 2030.
The coach we should have is waiting at ESPN for his job back.
You can't loose to get in it's called inconsistency. It's a learning & experienced process.
MTSU makes it UT doesn't. What does this say about out program at present?
good job Evan good reporting.
Frankly I've noticed at TN we are influenced by a very Radical public meaning get rid of them now it's almost like a Holier Than Thou attitude. We forget Humans are Humans in my opinion I wouldn't have gotten rid of The Football Coach or the Basketball coach I would ride it out with them until it is Obvious they can't make the grade anymore. Let me ask you if we kept them would things have been worse than now? I don't think so.
We're having Fun keep going
The team can't win away from home. It's that simple why inexperience!
HONESTLY! Bray looks good we all forget he was only a kid at UT and he has now and will continue to put on weight he looks good and we already know he can throw so he deserves what he'll get and he just may start! Don't be surprised. Good Luck Tyler. I just hope he doesn't forsake TN.
I was really impressed with the Lady Vols during that game they could have beaten anyone I believe. It lifted my Spirits I just hope the injuries aren't to bad. You Go Girls!
I remember when Doug Dickie pushed the limits for our stadium it made us all proud when 108,000 watched TN. It was the talk of the Nation on CBS Then Michigan pushed theirs a little bigger. Then Hamilton the former AD took away from the seating which in my opinion was ignorant however he was business and not TN pride. We need to get it back as the Best and along with that comes Winning and Big Orange Pride! Don't loose it!
personally this is where the Media could help Put the word out that UT is looking for a STARTING running back. See what happens. We may be surprised!
One mistake OK but many, No he's showing a pattern and that's something nobody wants to get involved with including the pros. Its done.
This is Bull So many Rules you have to look them up. there's a word for that "Stupid thinking"
Once again and no more These kids are out of High School and Media builds them up like they are Super Stars most are 18 or 19 years old and make a big deal on signing day like they are some coveted catch and many can't handle college at all. Media does this just to sell ads for their TV & Radio shows and Print it's really ashame what its become.
Everything considered I think Coach Jones did a great Job. I'm Stoked and ready to see what becomes of it and I think the Fans need to get off their butts and buy tickets and go to the game it's a new era for us I want to be a part of it and YOU need to show your support from the Students to All Big Orange Fans!
