Written on Vols land four-star juco DL Lambert :

Big time get at a position of great need.Go Butch.Go Vols!!

Written on UT will open 2014 season against Utah State:

Utah state is a pretty good opening day game.The team plays four teams from other conferences every year and this will be a good test.No need to play a bunch of top ten teams outside of conference when you already play six to seven top twenty five teams in conference.There is going to be one top twenty five team scheduled next year, much like Oregon this year.This will be the warm up game.If you don't want to go see the game then give your tickets to a real fan.Go Vols!!

Written on UT players say they embrace Butch Jones' process-driven approach:

I like everything about Coach Jones so far.I hope I still do around the middle of the third quarter of the Oregon game.The former guy in the head coaching position could not get the team to play sixty minutes even when his job was on the line.I understand that the score board might not be in our favor that day but I hope the team is ready and willing to give it they're all for Tennessee.Go Butch and Go Vols!!

Written on GoVols247: Linebacker Bryant commits to Tennessee:

A top 20 class last year and what looks like a top ten legacy class on the way.Butch so far has exceeded my expectations.If Butch can coach em up then he just might have the best coaching staff in America.I can't wait till football season!!

Written on Tennessee Vols building on brick theme:

Looks like coach Jones has things headed the right way so far.He seems to be able to get people to buy in quick.I sure hope he can coach in game as well as he recruits.Good vibe around town these days.Go Vols!!

Written on Loss to Arkansas puts Vols at mercy of rival in order to reach SEC tournament :

Go Vols!!Serrano will get you there.It will just take time.If Serrano can't get it done it will never be done.Got to give him maybe even 6 years but it will happen.

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

in response to Witch_Doctors:

Witch Doctor pretty sure Slive never wanted him in the SEC in the first place so Witch Doctor think hes got to retire for that to happen. Witch Doctor pretty sure Slive hates Pearl...
Bones never lie.

UT just needs to have some testicular fortitude.Hire Bruce back in 2015 and tell Slive to mind his own.I might be wishing here but that's how I see it.

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

in response to Witch_Doctors:

Witch Doctor say whats really sad is they think Pearl can come back before his ban is up..and really dont see how after that. Witch Doctor say its not up to sports board posters, NCAA and SEC and I still think Slive has a hardon over Pearl from the past..?
Bones never lie.

I know it won't be next year but in 2015 things will be different.Coach Zo will miss the Dance for the third time in four years and Bruce will be coming off a upset win in the NCAA tourney with a small mid major school.Bruce 2015!!

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

in response to GerryOP:

Nope, Bruce never lost a NIT game. But Bruce lost at life ... he lied. You too need to get a life. Don't expect Bruce to walk through the locker-room door as our head coach. Peace bro'.

Bruce is the best coach TN ever had.If you think otherwise it just shows that you are not a Vol fan.Winning matters and Bruce is a winner.Learn to forgive and Bring back Bruce!!

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

Bruce never lost a NIT game.That's because Bruce always went Dancing.I miss Bruce!!

Written on Tyler Summitt contacted about Coastal Carolina job:

Good for Tyler.I hope he gets it.I fell like he will be coming home at some point.

Written on Vols try to turn attention off NCAA omission and onto Mercer:

Bruce never lost a NIT game.That's right Bruce was in the Dance!I miss Bruce!!

Written on Vols try to turn attention off NCAA omission and onto Mercer:

I sure hope Hubbs can shoot threes.If the team must shoot 30 threes in a game they might want to make some of them.

Written on Vols try to turn attention off NCAA omission and onto Mercer:

The UK loss is too funny.They did not want to be there and it showed.Lets hope coach Zo and this team can save a little face against Mercer.If they don't want to be there they will lose just like UK.

Written on Mike Strange: Another NCAA near-miss ups the ante for Cuonzo Martin, Vols in 2014:

Maybe next year.I never had to say that about Bruce but then again Bruce knew how to Dance.Bruce 6 for 6.Martin 0 for 2.!!Maybe next year Martin catches up a little.I hope he does.If not then its time to forgive Bruce and welcome him home.If ESPN likes what Bruce brings to the table then UT and the fans should have open arms.Everyone should get a second chance.I just hope when Bruce gets his second chance its in orange and white.

Written on Tennessee left in the hands of the committee, but Cuonzo Martin thinks his team deserves to be in:

#Team 69!!Bring back the fun.Bring back the Dance.Bring back Bruce!!Coach Martin is close but Bruce never missed!!

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

in response to Witch_Doctors:

Witch Doctor miss Chris Lofton but its never going to happen again either. lol
Bones never lie.

How fun it was!

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

This was the game that Coach Martin needed to sway all the ''I miss Bruce'' fans to the Martin bandwagon.I hope to hear Tennessee on Sunday night and be happy but as of right now,I still miss Bruce!!

Written on Evan's Eleven: 5-star RB Jalen Hurd's commitment to Tennessee is biggest catch of Butch Jones' tenure:

Big time Get!!Well done Coach Jones!!Come on Berry twins,the Vol nation loves you!!

Written on Tennessee beats Mississippi State, advances in SEC tournament:

A win is a win.Great job Vols on the win no doubt but the effort needs to be turned up a bit against Bama.Must play harder and for the whole game.Still need one.Go Vols!!

Written on Vols celebrate 64-62 victory against Missouri on Senior Day:

Great win on senior day!Thank you seniors for being Vols.The team still needs one or maybe two more wins in the sec tourney to get in the big dance.A conference upset or two and they might get the boot.Just keep winning!Go Vols!

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

I miss the dance.I miss Bruce!!

Written on Vols land a big one, 64-58, against Florida :

in response to AclockworkOrange:

How about all you Bruce Pearl supporters? Still think that liar should coach this team?

I think coach Zo has the team headed in the right direction but I still would trade Zo for Bruce any time.Coach Zo might make me forget about the legend that is Bruce one day but I doubt it.

Written on Vols land a big one, 64-58, against Florida :

Great win Vols!!I am so very proud of this team.

Written on Tennessee's offense stands out in 9-7 baseball victory :

Written on Vols blow out Kentucky, 88-58:

That was a beat down.Great win by the Vols!!Sweep of Vandy was great but this win was what coach Zo needed.Go Vols!!

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

Great sweep of Vandy.Coach Zo can quiet a lot of people,myself included,by beating down UK this weekend.They are down and this is a prime time to pounce.

Written on In Butch Jones' 'VOLympics,' UT players will earn, lose points for actions away from field:

I like this.Find your leaders now.Great idea.

Written on Mike Strange: Are the Vols losing their basketball stepping stones? :

Bruce is and always will be the man!The name of TBA should be changed to the Pearl Pavilion.Bring back the fun of winning.Bring back Bruce!

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

Bring back Bruce!!

Written on 21 new Vols in Tennessee's 2013 signing classs:

in response to Vol43:

That's funny, fire Butch. Now there's the answer. As fans, we have no power or control concerning such matters as the hiring of personnel whether it be AD, head coach or any other yet we gripe and complain. We didn't get into this mess overnight and we're not going to see the program return to prominence overnight. So what do we do in the meantime, support Coach Jones or simply whine? I'm gonna support him while many(and I mean MANY)others will voice their dislike of him.

Fire Butch?I said nothing of the sort.

Written on 21 new Vols in Tennessee's 2013 signing classs:

I only tell the truth.I am not going to just fall in love with a coach just because you want me to.Coach Jones could do well and I hope he does.Having said that I think this class is only OK in SEC standards.It is not even better than Vandys class.I think next year could be a lot better.I am not saying fire Butch I'm just saying this class is at the back end of SEC standards.

Written on 21 new Vols in Tennessee's 2013 signing classs:

in response to BIVOLAR_BEARE:

Rivals has UT at 20, and if you think a top 20 class is mediocre you're an idiot..Just sayin'

I only tell the truth.I grade this class a C- in SEC standards.I think next year could be a lot better.By the way I have not ever called any other poster names.Everyone has a right to an opinion.Have a nice day!

Written on 21 new Vols in Tennessee's 2013 signing classs:

Eleventh in the SEC.No excuses for this.Ole Miss and Auburn landed a lot more than Butch.This class is a C- at best.You must beat the teams in your own conference.Butch did not get it done this year.Maybe next year.

Written on Vols flip Brown from Syracuse:

in response to voldoll73:

"Red:" What do you base that statement on?

The best staff in the country lands top ten classes every year even if you only had three weeks to get it done.Coach Jones has failed his first test.The next test will be going seven and five or better this fall.

Written on Vols flip Brown from Syracuse:

Well if coach Jones can't get the top football recruits it is nice to see he can get the top volleyball players.

Written on Vols flip Brown from Syracuse:

You win with big recruits so I would say both.This class is only eleventh in the SEC.That is falling farther behind.i hope coach Jones gets things done but even Dooley had a better class his first year than this.Like I said maybe next years legacy class can get people excited.

Written on Vols flip Brown from Syracuse:

in response to BIVOLAR_BEARE:

One lost recruit means they can't coach??

Don't know yet if they can coach but they are not the best staff in the country if they can't land the top recruits.Maybe next year.

Written on Vols flip Brown from Syracuse:

Vandy just got better and UT is standing still.This needs to stop.

Written on Vols flip Brown from Syracuse:

Looks like Coach Jones and staff are in fact not the best staff in the country.

Written on Top 25 class is possible for Butch Jones with a strong finish:

The best staff in the country should be able to land a top fifteen class this year.Dooley landed a top fifteen class his first year and I expect coach Jones to do the same.Coach Jones needs to deliver in the morning so the fans have some hope for the next three years.If coach Jones does not land a top fifteen class then his staff is no where near the best in the country.
