2  Sports / VTTW Message Board / Re: I've never been more ambivalent about a college football NC game... on: January 08, 2018, 11:38:25 EST
On one hand there's Bama. I can pull for Bama over the tiglets because I really hate the tiglets but otherwise I shouldn't pull for Bama.

On the other hand there's Georgia. I've always said that I had rather beat UGA more than any other team (except the tiglets) because I know so many UGA fans. This place is swarming with them. If they win the NC the awfulness will be exceeded only when the tiglets win it.

I'll probably watch. But I probably won't be very interested.

I haven't watched a BCS title game since the Vols played and won.  Except for a few plays early in the Vandy game, and the last few minutes of the Army/Navy game, I didn't watch any college football on TV this season.  Tonight's game will be no different; I just have zero interest.  I'll learn who won when I access the internet tomorrow morning.  I'm seriously ready for some college lacrosse.

Geez...good thing butthurt is not a crime. Would be lots of criminals on this board.

You seem to be the only one here fitting that description.

A Nebraska fan neighbor of mine just mentioned it to me this morning.

6-3...Was that the 2005 game?

Yes.  There's a link to the All Time Schedule/Results in the news section at the top of the board (though it needs to be updated to add 2017). 
6  Sports / VTTW Message Board / Re: Anyone really worried about this early signing period? I see the Vols are on: December 20, 2017, 11:17:02 EST
As opposed to fans like you who made excuses for Jones ineptness for 5 years, which has led to the situation the program is now. I just go by what I see on the field, which showed Jones was not a good coach. Yet many just kept giving him free passes. Now it is just going to take a while to get the the ship righted. I think Pruitt will give it a better run than Jones did. Hopefully he can get the 4 and 5* recruits on board. If he doesn't, it's hard to expect him to beat teams like UGa and Bama that are getting a lot of 4 and 5* recruits.
You are so full of yourself and BS.

Even the great Bill Dance is in on it:


Now it looks like he's getting some lax gear from a college, U.S. National team, and MLL great!

Big win over a top 5 team.  Congrats, Lady Vols! 
10  Sports / VTTW Message Board / Decent SI article... on: December 08, 2017, 01:43:59 EST
...on Pruitt.

11  Sports / VTTW Message Board / Re: Ever since yesterday's presser... on: December 08, 2017, 02:21:49 EST
Welcome Coach Pruitt! Three weeks ago we would've rioted at the thought, today I'm grateful you want to be here.

I've actually been hoping for a major program up-and-coming coordinator to be hired.  I'm tired of lower quality head coaches, and I've never cared for retread head coaches from other programs.  I was never excited by the thought of Gruden, and honestly none of the other head coaches thrilled me.  Of course, I'm totally ignorant about college coaches over the past decade or so, so.... 
12  Sports / VTTW Message Board / Re: Beverly's scarf is the wrong shade of orange* on: December 08, 2017, 01:08:03 EST
Since I usually see about 25 different shades of orange in and around the stadium on game days, I think she can be forgiven.    If he brings wins, she's welcome to wear any shade she wishes. 
13  Sports / VTTW Message Board / Re: My initial thought on a coach was.......... on: December 07, 2017, 07:42:54 EST
I'm pulling for Pruitt. I have zero expectations.

I'm just the opposite; I have high expectations and think he should have a winning record next season and yearly improvement.  That's not based at all on Pruitt, but on what I think any competent head coach should be able to do with a decent staff, the returning players, good recruiting, and good player development.  I don't think that's an unfair expectation.
14  Sports / VTTW Message Board / Re: We all blamed Currie?...... on: December 01, 2017, 05:23:49 EST
I'm no more confident that a Fulmer as interim/permanent AD and Bev Davenport are going to get it any more right than Currie did.  

The entire UT administration is one big cluster fizzle.  

15  Sports / VTTW Message Board / Re: I think an inexperienced HC hire can be a GOOD thing on: November 30, 2017, 02:36:10 EST
Tee Martin would be an unmitigated disaster as a head coach. If he hadn't played at Tennessee, there is no one in this fan base who would want him as the head coach. Georgia Southern didn't even hire him as head coach, for crying out loud.

I don't dislike Tee at all. But this is only his second season as a coordinator, and he was catching a lot of heat from USC fans for his playcalling as recently as this year. He is nowhere close to being experienced enough to be the head coach at a major P5 program.

Coach Fulmer was what, 42 years old with 3 years experience as OC, when he was hired?  I'd be fine with Tee and strong coordinators.
16  Sports / VTTW Message Board / Re: There are some reports that we might owe Schiano money...... on: November 27, 2017, 02:57:00 EST
If we had an AD that knows Tennessee then this wouldn't be happening. Working for Urban may have lulled the guy into thinking it's water under the bridge. What actually did happen to him for his complicity through silence?

Currie got his Master's at Tennessee and worked in the UTAD for over a decade before going to KSU.  I guess he's a slow learner.
17  Sports / VTTW Message Board / Re: Someone remind me again why we didn't hire Blackburn? on: November 27, 2017, 01:45:16 EST
I mean, that was the most obvious, most slam-dunk would-be hire in UT history.  All the fans wanted him, and he wanted the job.  He even stated so publicly.  And in typical UT fashion, we hire someone else.

18  Sports / VTTW Message Board / Re: Currie needs to be relieved of his duties immediately. on: November 27, 2017, 12:15:20 EST
Well yes, that goes without saying.  I simply meant even Fulmer looks right now.   

Ok, I can go with that. 
19  Sports / VTTW Message Board / Re: According to Brent on: November 27, 2017, 12:14:03 EST
Why in the world would a coach want to walk into this? Is he delusional or arrogant? Or does he figure that if he gets fired he gets the big payout?

Massive ego.

20  Sports / VTTW Message Board / Re: According to Brent on: November 26, 2017, 11:55:25 EST
Schiano and his family are perhaps reconsidering due to the overwhelming backlash from the VOL nation

I keep forgetting its not even 6:00 in the hills

The guy who broke the "reconsidering" tweet says the OSU source now "Says that Greg Schiano is about 75% sure, right now, that he will still take the Tennessee head coaching job still."
21  Sports / VTTW Message Board / Re: Currie needs to be relieved of his duties immediately. on: November 26, 2017, 11:50:46 EST
Fulmer as AD sure looks good right about now.

Nah.  Blackburn, yes.
22  Sports / VTTW Message Board / Re: In other news, Im afraid UF has hired the right guy on: November 26, 2017, 11:31:40 EST
I think Mullen will end up being better for them than Kelly, JMO.  I wish we had a chance at getting Mullen.  Were fizzleed

And Gators fans on Facebook are already complaining about accepting mediocrity. I offered to trade for Schiano. 
23  Sports / VTTW Message Board / If it's Schiano, there will be no more TRO Family tailgates,... on: November 26, 2017, 09:04:59 EST
...and I will give up my 10 season tickets and never attend a game while he's there. If true, this is a terrible hire.
24  Sports / VTTW Message Board / Re: CBS sports started it. 247 jumping in. on: November 26, 2017, 07:11:51 EST
Eventually somebody has to be right, right?  

Yep, Currie. 

"Naturally, there will be great interest and speculation across the college football world. As I reminded our student-athletes when I met with them earlier today, unless you hear news directly from me, do not assume it to be accurate." -- John Currie, AD, Tennessee
25  Sports / VTTW Message Board / Re: How do you feel about Mike Leach....... on: November 26, 2017, 06:39:13 EST
I don't want Leach.. he's a nut case
