1  Sports / VTTW Message Board / Re: Sucks losing to Cuonzo Martin. on: Today at 07:08:24 PM
Missouri is one of the top 5 teams in the conference, and this was a tough road game.  Sucks to lose, yes, but would have been an impressive win had we pulled it off.

I'm just glad we beat Tamu while they were still recovering from injury.  That looked like a very tough game preseason.

WRONG  he QUIT  on the team LONG before he was kicked off. 

Where the HELL was he at from the end of the 1st game till FHCJ was fired?  He sure as hell wwasn't in the LB room as FCBJ lied that he was

What is the LB room? 

He was injured.  I don't really care what he was doing while he was injured.

This is nothing new, has been known for weeks.  He is engaged to a smoking hot daughter of a man worth $200 M.  Can't say I blame him.   

Mr. Dormady has better things to "do".   
4  Sports / VTTW Message Board / Re: I haven't seen this announced on the board yet, but Juan Jenning is returning on: January 16, 2018, 10:03:30 EST
Now can Jennings meet the stipulations and keep his nose clean or will he think his is a prima donna that can do what he pleases? The $million ?.

Hopefully he has learned his lesson.  If not, Pruitt will not have a problem showing him the door.  We sure could have used him last season, hate that he got injured.

One thing I have heard that just shows how insipid fans can be.  "He quit on the team".  No, he didn't quit.  He got kicked off the team.  Huge difference. 

I am sure he's on a short leash.  Welcome back JJ, and please keep your shizzle together!   

This is like a big recruiting victory.  Between him, TKJ and Kirkland and maybe a couple others I can't recall coming back, we will be in much better shape next year.

Saw this tweet:
Eagles traded N. Foles to Rams for S. Bradford. Foles lost his job in St. Louis, C. Keenum takes over. Eagles draft C. Wentz and trade Bradford to Minn. Vikings sign Keenum, who replaces injured Bradford. Foles returns to Philly, replaces injured Wentz. Now, Foles vs. Keenum.


That is pretty nuts 
6  Sports / VTTW Message Board / My expectations for CJP on: January 15, 2018, 03:57:06 EST
Winning season next year, compete for SEC East in 2019, have a good chance to win it in 2020.

I was one year more patient on all the above with Butch, because of the very deep "Dooley hole" we were in. 

IMO CJP has inherited a much better situation talent wise, and the players at least had a taste of winning (vs. 3 straight losing seasons with Dooley).  So my expectations are higher this time around.

Local bammers have mentioned horse tooth as well.  I would not be surprised, but at the same time a lot of them were unhappy with him when he left the first time.   
8  Sports / VTTW Message Board / Re: Hate it for Kamara... on: January 15, 2018, 03:36:19 EST
Well I like Brees and Kamara, so was very weakly rooting for Saints.

OTOH, Minnesota D best matchup for bellicheat and lady.  Not to mention home field advantage.

What a terrible play by the Saints DB.  He did one of the most complained about things in defensive football...tried to hit instead of wrapping up, ducked his head, missed, and blocked his own team mate in the process!  Gonna be a long off season for that guy.  Would not wanna be him right now.   
9  Sports / VTTW Message Board / Re: Keith Jackson.....RIP on: January 15, 2018, 03:33:51 EST
Forgot he started out at OU.....He finished at UCLA IIRC.

Correct.  I said USC but meant UCLA
10  Sports / VTTW Message Board / Re: Keith Jackson.....RIP on: January 15, 2018, 01:03:16 EST
One other thing....not sure how widely known it is, but OU's QB in 1985 was Troy Aikman, who is from Oklahoma.  Miami broke his ankle during the game, and per my room mate, that's the main reason they won.  Aikman was replaced by Jamelle Holloway, who was better suited to the offense OU ran anyway, so Aikman transferred to USC, where he nearly won a Heisman, then got drafted and the rest, they say, is history.  (-:

My old room mate's best friend played HS ball with Aikman and was a TE/WR.  Said Aikman frequently left red marks on him if he didn't catch the ball in time.  You didn't want to get hit by an Aikman pass in the stomach or back.   
11  Sports / VTTW Message Board / Re: Lady Vols 86...South Carolina 70...FINAL* on: January 15, 2018, 12:54:44 EST
Round ball of both varieties looking good for Vols so far this season.   

Just hope we can continue it.
12  Sports / VTTW Message Board / Re: Alabama will have another new OC next year..... on: January 15, 2018, 12:53:50 EST
It's probably not too late for them to hire Dooley away from Mizzou.

Lord please.   

But you know, with our luck, he would be the second coming of (insert prolific OC name here).
13  Sports / VTTW Message Board / Re: Keith Jackson.....RIP on: January 15, 2018, 12:52:56 EST

I had to watch the whole thing on TV, as I didn't make it down there.  The assumption that we would lose was evident and only got worse when they scored the first TD.

Don't forget that Jimmie Johnson had spent the entire month leading up to the game campaigning for the national championship because the Hurricaines had beaten OU, which was playing undefeated and no. 1 Penn State in the Orange Bowl.  OU had one loss in the regular season, as did Miami but Miami had beaten OU in the regular season. 

So yes, very satisfying to smoke their asses the way we did. The coronation was in full after that first TD, but the 35 unanswered points ended it.   

Given that Florida had beaten Miami in the first game of the 1985 season and they got smoked again in 1992 by bammer, one wonders how good their late 80s/early 90s run would have been had they been an SEC team in those years and not independent.

Side note...in 1991, I had a room mate who was an OU grad and the only thing he knew about Tennessee is that we enabled his team to win the NC in 1985.  Had we lost, the pollsters might just have picked Miami.

Anyway...good times.  As often discussed, that 1986 Sugar Bowl definitely helped put Tennessee on the map again.  One wonders/hopes there might be another colossal game like that in our near future.  Lord knows we need it!   
14  Sports / VTTW Message Board / Re: So, Jennings could return... on: January 14, 2018, 12:11:36 EST
At least he was kicked off, and didn't quit at midseason like Hurd.   Big difference IYAM.
15  Sports / VTTW Message Board / Re: David Johnson WR coach on: January 14, 2018, 12:09:58 EST
Glad we got him.  Heard LSU made a serious run also.  It's about time we got back to being WR U.   
16  Sports / VTTW Message Board / Re: Here isi the usual Friday reminder.... on: January 12, 2018, 07:40:03 EST
The Federal guvmint saw fit to send me home at 11 am also, due to freezing rain.  so bite me!   

Now get out there and play some golf droner.  Great day for it.   
17  Sports / VTTW Message Board / Re: Coach "Aight" is having a press conference at 1:30.* on: January 11, 2018, 10:14:53 EST
Pruitt has his work cut out for him. He is still a great hire when you consider the dumpster fire Curry created. He will do a good job. But I know fans, me especially, probably will expect too much too soon. Smart has made it tough on all new coaches in the SEC by going to the playoff his second year. I will give Pruitt three...lol . Damn Bama. Doesn't win the SEC and still wins the NC. I saw a statistic that is unreal. They haven't lost to an unranked team since ULM in 2007. They are 98-0 against unranked teams. Good teams should beat unranked teams. But that is crazy. To put it in perspective, in that timeframe, 10 years...no other P5 school has less than 9 losses to unranked teams. Saban has always had great staffs around him. How good does this staff Pruitt is assembling look?

Well...saban has made it tough for everyone the last 10 years (mandatory mention of "by cheating massively at recruiting" goes here  ).  What Kirby Smart did in his second year is impressive, but can he sustain it?  Not so long ago Gus Malzahn made it to the NC game in his FIRST YEAR, and this came after a 3-9 season.  And then fell off the map.  In fact, there were rumblings of him getting fired quite a bit this season, and without beating both uga and bammer he would have. 

Impressed by what Smart did this year...was really impressed by Malzahn also though.

One reason Smart might do better is that he is currently dominating recruiting the way saban does. Don't know how long that will last either.

I am tempted to hope that Smart had more to do with bammer recruiting success than saban over the years and that the reversal is permanent.  Except...that doesn[t really help us.

SEC is down everywhere but at the top, but man is it tough.  Toughest conference in Murica by a mile.
18  Sports / VTTW Message Board / Re: So, Jennings could return... on: January 11, 2018, 05:44:52 EST
If the coaches and team are willing to give him another chance, the fans have no say. It is not our call. If HC Pruitt establishes the return criteria and parameters to remain on the team, it will be up to Jennings to do them and walk the straight and narrow. A whole lot of fan response is based on a generation gap in which a lot of people just refuse to accept change into a new way of looking at life. Just because you would never do what he did on social media does not make him a social pariah. So if the coaches and team want to give him another chance with zero tolerance from this day forward, it will be OK.

So you're saying there is substantial backlash from some fans?  If so, they need to STFU.  Everyone deserves a second chance.  It's not like he got drunk and killed someone with his car or got involved in a fight and seriously injured someone.  He just dropped a few f-bombs, which every coach on every staff in America probably does about a dozen times a day.

Or that's my $0.02 any way.   
19  Sports / VTTW Message Board / Re: Tyler Byrd to defense?.......... on: January 11, 2018, 04:28:29 EST
Dooley was an awful recruiter but imo a much better Xs and Os coach than Butch, and surrounded himself with much better help (sans Sunseri).

And had a much much worse record than Butch.   Dooley never had a winning season while Butch got us to nine wins twice. 

Agree about the staff.  Justin Wilcox went on to do well as an assistant elsewhere and is now the HC at Cal.  Chaney has bounced all over the SEC and is doing well at Georgia.  Also X/Os....Butch was awful about that.  I guess Dooley was okay on the X/Os....not much better at in game management though. I recall many instances of the wrong number of folks on the field for special teams, inappropriate tries on 4th down, the LSU game with .... 13 on the field!

Dooley was worse overall than Butch though, if you use the one statistic that counts - wins.  That truly is all that matters.

But whatever. I am looking forward, not back.

I will be willing to wager that some folks will still be whining about Butch 10 years for now.  Some just can't seem to let it go.

It always makes me happy to see them whine.  The face mask and the head slap were hard to miss.  Personnally, I thought the offside was close enough to miss.  Either way, heeheeheeheeheeheeheeheehee.

I hate that bammer won, like anything, but I don't mind the dawgs losing at all.

22  Sports / VTTW Message Board / Re: The puppies take whining about refs to higher levels on: January 10, 2018, 05:38:46 EST

I thought you meant there was an official complaint.  There really should be. 
23  Sports / VTTW Message Board / Re: One thing I know. UT has NEVER had a coach that would put a freshman in THAT on: January 10, 2018, 05:16:35 EST

You're simply wrong...again. I'm not going to waste anymore of  my time on you.



Whatever.  It doesn't matter, it's an insignificant side point.  Bottom line...satan didn't want Barnett to transfer and was very upset when he did, and the reason is obvious.  He didn't like the  QB that everyone pretended was actually good for the last two years, first and foremost all the brutha's in your locker room seemed to like him...for some reason.   

You should get down on your knees and thank God that your Hawaiian import made that miracle throw, because by all logic and everything that's right in the universe bammer deserved to lose that game.   
24  Sports / VTTW Message Board / Re: Tyler Byrd to defense?.......... on: January 10, 2018, 05:12:41 EST
Long discussed and seems like a good move.

We definitely need help back there.
25  Sports / VTTW Message Board / Re: The puppies take whining about refs to higher levels on: January 10, 2018, 05:11:58 EST
That was a bad officiated game.....In fact it was some of the worst no calls you'll ever see. I'm all for letting them play...letting DBs and WRs go at it. But there were holding calls that were missed several times....missed facemask calls with a ref looking right at the play....Should have been a personal foul called on a Bama DB shoving Fromm's head to the ground after a tackle. If that had been a UT DB there would have been 34 flags thrown right there....On that Bama TD to tie it....the WR had a running start before the ball was snapped.....It looked like the Canadian football league where they let them move forward before the snap. Just a bad called game.


The one highlighted was the most egregious.  I didn't realize the WR was offsides.  Wow, what a tainted win for bammer.

@Volman....there was no balance.  The refs might have missed a couple calls on Georgia, but the calls missed on bammer were far more and had a serious impact on the game.  I don't think it was a conspiracy, but it is funny how bammer always gets away with shizzle like that.

I honestly don't see how the bammer defender got away with the slap to Fromm's head.  That was obvious and blatant.
