in response to Caneoverthere:

"Local Business Owners" - how Republican is that?

How many pay at or less than minimum wage with no benefits?

"Local Business Owners" that provide jobs to people who, unlike "forward thinkers", want to actually work. They want to have some kind of pride and dignity instead of "willingly" trading in paychecks for welfare checks.

Go find msnbc.com or some other anti-American site.

Written on Butch Jones introduced as new head coach:

To Bivolar, I apologize about any mislead info about a previous post before. I was told info about a "possible" trend in all this coaching hire. It was wrong. I never mislead anyone (you can read), but it was false.

My apologies. Also, I agree with what you said about Hart and all of this.

And to UkJarhead - Govols.com is not the place for you to come out of the closet. Your love for the cheater is something you will confess til you no longer breathe oxygen, I'm sure. But find another site to spray that disgraceful propaganda because no one here believes or understands it.

P.S. - the worst day in Vol land is better than any national championship in Uk land.

I think I'm on page with what you heard, but after all this Gundy, Strong and Fedora cr@p. I have no faith in our AD or big boosters to make a big deal happen. At this point I'm almost ambivalent.

I understand what you are saying, especially with the way things are looking & what's happening now. With everything that has happened to the program, faith in them is something that is as hard to find as gold dust.

All I'm saying, if this IS true... if it's true (if it's true, I know some of the people personally) then don't expect anything to be announced in the next few days.

But, like I have been saying - "If it's true." So I'm not going to give anything out now. If it winds up a Strong, Jones, Butch Davis, Gundy, etc... then it has nothing to do with any of this. You won't be seeing a "HEY GUYS LOOK AT WHAT I POSTED ON DEC 6TH...TOLD YOU SO" post.

I was told to be patient and wait for the announcement.

No.

I'm not one these "my sources" posters (you can look back at all of them... I don't do any of that).

From what I was told today, there could be some smoke & mirrors going on here.

If, IF, what I was told true, then it'll be well worth all of this.

All I can tell Vols fans is - be patient & wait for the announcement.

If this is true, the best advice I can give Vols fans is to be patient and don't believe anything until Hart makes the announcement.

Written on ESPN report says Charlie Strong is top candidate for Tennessee head football coach:

in response to manniesghost1903:

Charlie Strong appears to me to have hugh chip on his shoulder which I sincerely believe would serve UT well and prove to be the "medicine" this program needs. Recruiting, facilities and fan passion for football are three elements which are missing in the Big East that has also been considered a "basketball league." Louisville's entry into the ACC will have a much greater impact on its basketball team than it will on the Cardinal football team.

From the content of some of the post on this thread, I detect some open and some subtle racism. Remember the United States is the only Western Industrial Nation that had to have a civil war to end slavery. But don't take my word on that. Read your history to confirm what I say.

From the content of your last paragraph, you must have logged in here accidentally thinking it was msnbc.com.

Re-educate yourself on why the Civil War was really fought.

Your post is the complete picture of nonsense.

in response to gobigorange5090:

I suspect some of the naysayers have a problem with a black coach. Just sayin

I suspect it's the exact opposite. I suspect, unlike some people in this degraded (supposedly forward thinking) society, that WE Vols fans hope Tennessee WOULDN'T hire because he IS black, but because he is the right fit for the job (something not learned 4 weeks ago).

Unlike this degraded society, I think UT fans think the only real color in this equation is ORANGE.

The media, among others, has degraded this society into a making every hire, especially coaches (especially in the south) a racial topic.

Strong isn't my top choice, but if he is successful should he be hired - IT'S AN ORANGE TOPIC.

If Strong is unsuccessful should he be hired - IT'S AN ORANGE TOPIC.

Most Tennessee fans care about one color - Orange.

in response to Wauconda_Vol:

What Tennessee NEEDS is a coach. Does it matter if he has a girlfriend named Brandy and he ran around on his wife? Does it matter if he kind of went behind his boss's back to get a coaching job (and his boss had been stricken with a heart attack)? Does it matter if a coach ratted out another program, and then turned around and pulled the same nonsense he was supposedly against? Does it matter if he went to Kinko's and faxed a copy of the playbook to an opposing team?

I won't argue over the need for morals. But this is a business, plain and simple. If a guy can do the job and not get the university in NCAA hot water, then he is the choice.

He quit on his team in Atlanta. He tried to quit and leave his team in Louisville.

That's enough for me to not want Petrino in Knoxville.

He shouldn't be the next coach at Tennessee.

So you are saying that Tennessee NEEDS a known adulterer who lied & embarrassed the last SEC school he coached.

So you are saying that Tennessee NEEDS a coach who quit on his team (Atlanta) before the season ended. He left his players when things were not going well.

So you are saying that Tennessee NEEDS a coach who may try to find another job with another school while their coach is still coaching during the middle of the season (Auburn in 1993).

So you are seriously saying that Tennessee needs this?

I want Tennessee to win. But I also want Tennessee be able to keep some dignity and morals.

Tennessee needs to win on and off the field. Tennessee doesn't need to win on the field and look like a Sopranos episode off the field.

petrino is a better coach!

The problem with Petrino is when he is NOT coaching. Adultery, trying to take other coaches' jobs, QUITTING on his players like he did in Atlanta, etc.

Petrino is garbage. If UT hires him, then UT will deserve the off-the field filth disgrace that follows Petrino. It's just something that Tennessee doesn't need right now. We don't need Petrino.

in response to UT4prez:

What in the world is wrong with all these teams and clock management at the end of games? I've seen it all over the country. GA should have spiked the ball when they got the pass down to Bama's 30 or so. Then they passed inside the 10 with 15 seconds left and did they learn from not spiking it before when they lost 7 or 8 seconds? Nope. They ran a play, lost another 6 seconds, and made a horrible decision. Yes it was tipped but the ball was not going to the end zone anyway. And then the kid caught it. Tough to fault him in the heat of battle but a heady player would have dropped it. Terrible coaching regarding the play calling and time management by GA. Like I said though, they are far from alone. It seems to be an epidemic.

I agree. It's almost like it's a trend to run a play if (in most circumstances) you would normally spike the ball and call in a planned play.

What a terrible way to lose a championship game.

Written on Coaching Carousel: After wild day of Jon Gruden rumors, Tennessee's pursuit uncertain :

There is definitely a trend in the whole Gruden or Bust.

If Gruden, does not come to Knoxville, then whoever becomes the headcoach will have some fans already not liking him.

Golden, Strong - some fans will say that Golden hasn't done anything special. Strong is good, but Louisville has lost its steam in the past few weeks.

Jones, Anderson - some fans will say that Tennessee is hiring another mid-major/smaller school coach who hasn't accomplished anything big time.

Fulmer, Chavis - many fans will say bringing back Tennessee's past will not do well for Tennessee's future.

Petrino, Tressel - Half of Tennessee fans will say - too much baggage off the field with adultery, quitting mid-season, and tattoo-gate. Too much of a gamble.

Kirby Smart - Most fans will say no more Saban/Bama ties. No HC experience too.

The chips will be all in for Gruden. However, if he does not show, then Vols fans MUST prepare for someone who is NOT Gruden. UT athletic dept must get someone who can unify the fanbase (unlike the mentioned above).

Proven success will be a must. Recent success too, escpecially as a college headcoach who knows recruiting. My guess that if Gruden chooses not to come to Tennessee then it'll be Jimbo Fisher.

Fisher is a successful headcoach at Florida State. He knows the recruiting game. Will have ties in Florida to recruit. He seems to be the one name that may not cause the fans to backlash.

Just my opinion... if no Gruden, Jimbo Fisher would be the right pick.

Written on Sporting News: Duke, North Carolina to SEC a real possibility:

It's a shame that tradition has taken a back seat to money.

College sports, especially football, is great because of it's traditions. This is no longer sacred now.

Just like so many aspects of society in this country, we are witnessing a downgrade in quality of the things that "were" great.

Written on Philadelphia report says Eagles keen to hire Gruden:

in response to Jesse_VFL:

Maybe this is just my lack of details in the case but I fail to see what Petrino did that was so bad. The guy hired his girl friend and lied about it. Nothing to do with how he ran the "Program". Lots of relatives hired in coaching and such. I don't know, maybe there is more but whoever gets him is gonna get a good coach.

I don't think Petrino will get an offer from UT. After trying to undermine Tuberville during the middle of the season (that is as low a move a coach could ever do to another coach) at Auburn, quitting on the Falcons (he quit before the season finished, left his players... he could have atleast finished the season), and embarrassing Arkansas, he is too much of a worry off the field (most most university football programs wouldn't want to have an Enquirer moment like that, only Penn State had a more controversial time last year than Arkansas).

One won't know if he'll jump ship, quit, or embarrass a program. Even the mention divides the fan base.

It's not how successful he was on the field (he was, I think that), it's the problems away from the field. Petrino is just not worth the trouble.

Imagine, if Tennessee were to hire Petrino and embarrassment #4 were to occur. Tennessee CAN'T afford it with where the program is at now.

Written on Poll: Who was Tennessee's MVP this season?:

in response to wigmeister:

ZACH ROGERS

He's the obvious choice in my opinion.

Patterson & Hunter showed glimpses of their talents sporadically. Bray was great 3 1/2 quarters of every game, almost that in the big games but froze up in the last 10 minutes of the big games.

Zac Rogers was this team's Eric Berry.

(This comment was removed by the site staff.)

No, it's Sumlin from Texas A&M. Year one in the SEC West, where the last three national champions came from, his team knocked off Bama in Tuscaloosa. He also may be the only coach in history to have a freshman Heisman Trophy winner. He will have them playing for a national title in a couple of years.

Muschamp is third in the SEC east in my opinion, behind Richt and Franklin.

Still waiting Mr. Blast for your intelligent response. Anyone can stomp their feet and just say, "He cheated, thats why" Please, just try and explain how a coach is responsible or has knowledge what a future player does on a test 9 months before he gets to college..... Waiting...

Please read the prior post Mr. Head. It was something about banners vacated, wins vacated, something of that nature.

I'm going to try to dumb it down for you -

Fact - the banners are material objects commemorating accomplishments. They can be seen by others. Now, they can't be seen. They were taken down by the NCAA. Cal had wins taken away. Wins subtracted, this involve mathematics (about as fact based as you can get since they can not lie (lie....OOOOHHHHH)).

A banner will hang in Nashville for this (you and the other 72 Vandy fans will send Vanderbilt University a donation to commemorate it...pityful, but atleast your players earned it without having a cheater to coach you...UKJarhead, you might not want to read this part... because atleast the NCAA won't be taking it down). Rings will most likely be issued to the players and coaches for last night's crowning achievement.

Written on An early look at candidates to replace Derek Dooley as Vols' coach:

in response to UkJarhead:

Do you have the ability to answer the questions as to how that falls on Cal? Can you string together one reasonable sentence on how that test with Rose is Cals responsibility? Please, just one utterance of an intelligent rebuttal. Can you? Then maybe explain with the current state of disgraced UT cheating coaches that you can sling mud.
.....

Maybe you, StormBlast in your wisdom can answer the question. Just give an intelligent answer instead of using sarcasm to explain how a coach knows 9 months before he gets a player that he cheated on a test. Please tell me. And maybe you should look up what Cal does in his spare time. In perspective, what makes a great man? A man that coaches well or doesn't cheat at work. Or a man that has raised tens of millions for all different charities and disaster relief in the past. Just deal in facts for once, if you can. I'm waiting for your answer but I suspect more sarcasm and quick wit about how UK corrupt.

Umass - banners fell. Memphis - banners fell.

Cal - wins deducted.

These are not opinions, mudslings, etc. These are facts. This did happen.

Oh, don't give me the halo hand out treatments. Every coach partakes in charitable events. It is a good thing, but it is also a pr thing too.

Funny how a championship (one banner that seems to be hanging, for now) causes amnesia for UK fans about how their current head coach has participated in a scorched earth policy with prior schools basketball programs.

I suggest you find a UK board to comment on to find fondness for Cal. You won't find it here.

Written on An early look at candidates to replace Derek Dooley as Vols' coach:

in response to UkJarhead:

Why would he join our staff? Cal never has been caught cheating, or even accused. Tressel is in the same category as your former basketball, football, baseball, and swim coach. They all cheated and got caught. Amazing how you people can still trash Cal when you have a mountain of cheaters in your recent past, accused and convicted. Now you just hired Petrino. Are you really that dumb?

Cal is the shining example of corruption. He leaves every program's integrity and places where banners once hung empty.

Kentucky did win a national championship last year. But understand this jarhead, no one in the SEC is or was rooting for Kentucky because they have a known cheater leading their basketball program.

Much like Cam Newton and Auburn's championship, last years Uk championship is more of a s#!t stain on the SEC instead of an accomplishment.

Kentucky deserves no respect for hiring a known cheater.

Written on An early look at candidates to replace Derek Dooley as Vols' coach:

in response to FWBVol:

marinevol, I appreciate your service to our country, but let me tell you why I have problems with Petrino.

It's not just the affair, but the fact that he used his position as the head football coach at Arkansas to hire his mistress. And then, after the accident, Petrino tried to cover up the fact he was with his mistress and didn't come clean about it until the evidence was so stacked against him that he couldn't deny it.

If Petrino's questionable behavior and ethics at Arkansas aren't enough, the guy quit on the Atlanta Falcons in midseason and didn't even have the backbone enough to address his team and tell them he was leaving. The guy left sticky notes or a xeroxed note on the lockers of the players telling them he was gone.

And finally there is his behavior while he was the head coach at Louisville when he met with big time Auburn boosters about the job at the school while Tommy Tuberville was still under contract with the school.

Yes, we all make mistakes, and many of us learn from our mistakes, but others never learn. In my opinion, based on Petrino's history of bonehead decisions, he might be one of those people that never learns and that's why I don't want UT to be the school to see if he's finally cleaned up act.

There are enough good coaches out there without character questions that I'd prefer not to stick my finger in the fire and see if it's still hot.

I think Jimbo Fisher is just as good of a hire and a lot safer.

I forgot about the Auburn incident. In my opinion, the Arkansas affair is strike three for Petrino. Anyone who hires him deserves what comes with him.

If Cutcliffe could lure Chavis back as DC I would endorse that hire..But, until Gruden is completely out of the picture you have to go for him.

I believe it will be Cutcliffe. Gruden will not be in Knoxville. Neither will Stoops.

If he could get Chavis back, especially after what has been witnessed this year with this defense, then I believe it would be a welcome site.

I don't think there is a perfect coach out there now. This could be a multi-coach process to turn the program around. Dooley, no matter what anyone says, did improve on some aspects of the program. The offense was vastly improved. If Cutcliffe is hired and could bring Chavis back, then this could be the right hire (for this time in the program).

Written on Vanderblowout: Tennessee loses to Vanderbilt in Nashville for first time since 1982 :

Ok, we know there is going to be a coaching change. That's obvious.

We have heard and read about the Grudens, Stoops, etc that fans want to see in Knoxville.

In the end, given the state of the program, who will be the next head coach? Not who do you want to see be the next coach, but who do any of you "think" will be here?

Gruden - doubtful, easy gig and money at ESPN.
Stoops - doubtful, OK can get the recruits to win a national championship (they are always a preseason darling).
Golden - Perhaps, but Miami is in the ACC & with the right players - they could own the ACC along with FSU.
Bobby Petrino - Maybe, it would be a no-brainer to him if offered the job. He quit on the Falcons and embarrassed Arkansas, so there might not be an offer.

I don't think UT will bring in someone from a small school. Look how that has worked out. One could make an argument for a chosen few. I don't believe we want to see this again.

If I had to guess, in the end it could be Cutcliffe. He would be someone who would "want" the job because of his time here. I don't think he will be first choice, but after the rejections - it could be his by default.

My guess (not what I want for Christmas) is that it will be Cutcliffe.

Perhaps some of the millions that go to fund the UT football program should go to psychiatric help.

Tennessee can not and will not beat Florida when both teams already know it. Even in a year like this year when Tennessee had a better quarterback, receivers, maybe even coaching. When the mentality of "let's not make any mistakes because we know we are in trouble if we do" is firmly cemented in, then no matter how much better the Vols are - they won't win.

It's the annual "deer in the headlights" display that was seen yet again. This has been going on way before Dooley, Bray, or anyone else who is with this team that you want to lay the blame on.

I will not ever pick Tennessee to beat Florida until they prove they can.

I still believe Tennessee is a team that has improved & will win perhaps 8 games.

But until Tennessee stops playing scared against Florida, they will never beat them.
