[at the risk of getting yelled at]

who?   

Seriously, thanks to him for his time at UT and all the luck in his new endeavors

Good to see you back bro!  Stick around.

I've "heard" that we may have self imposed a 5 scholarship reduction, which may be a factor in the portal pursuits, if true

Calbert going to the NFL draft

https://www.rockytopinsider.com/2022/01/13/tennessee-lineman-krojhn-calbert-declares-for-nfl-draft/


Calbert was injured for all of 2021 - not to be confused with Carvin who was a starter at guard.


Calbert went through senior day so he was pretty much done at UT.

So it was Colbert that was the more frequent starter, right?

If you spend your time watching Paul, you get what you deserve. 

No doubt!

But it does bother me that he is a UT grad, but admitted on the air the other day (finally!) that he is more a bama fan.  Talked about how he spent more time in the state.

I have a friend that knew Paul as an undergrad though not very well.  They had a mutual friend.  But the story is that Paul spent a lot of time complaining about UT.  I think he is never really did like it and is happy to switch to our rival.

He's a traitor and a rat!

Hey thinking about it a bit more, Finebaum probably scheduled the guy anticipating a saban win.  Which almost makes it funny. 
7  Sports / VTTW Message Board / Re: So today of all days, Finebaum features a book on saban on his show on: January 12, 2022, 04:37:46 EST
We're all Vol fans here. As such, we all hate Alabama. (Well, most of us  ) But I'm starting to worry that your Bama hatred might be unhealthy. 

No, it's very healthy if you live in the state.    

That aside, anyone who watches Finebaum at all can tell he has crawled up bama's ass and died.  On one show he causually mentioned he had been to the bama ADs house.  How many other SEC ADs does he socialize with?  (Hint, the answer is probably somewhere between 0 and 0).
8  Sports / VTTW Message Board / So today of all days, Finebaum features a book on saban on his show on: January 11, 2022, 11:08:56 EST
The title of it is "Greatest Coach of All Time".  While the argument can be made that saban is (barf!), why today of all days, after Kirby finally beats him and he has now lost to two former assistants?

Its because Finebaum just can't keep his nose out of saban's arse.  It's almost like he wants to pump saban after the loss.  He might as well just wear crimson all the time.

Vinnie - Pollack apparently did an in-depth inspection of the Georgia locker room.

I bet he enjoyed it

UGA won because they kicked the every loving shizzel out of Bama on both lines of scrimmages....The second half it was flat brutal.

The runs in the fourth quarter were impressive.  Its what bama used to do.

I'm not at all upset that he doesn't get a ring.  Bama missed those stud receivers badly tonight.

yep.  As good as Bryant is, bama has always for as long as saban has been there, had two NFL WRs, and often two first rounders.  Huge part of their success.  But both were gone.

One of the local sports radio stations in Huntsville is owned by Wes Neighbors, who played for Curry and whose father and son also played for bama (his other son played for LSU...must be the black sheep!).  A couple days ago he said on the air he wasn't worried that Metchie was out, but if Williamson was gone also that would be bad.  He was very correct.
13  Sports / VTTW Message Board / Re: So, Uh the Championship Game on: January 11, 2022, 06:16:06 EST
You people... nothing good ever came from a Bama win...

THIS!  Its about time bama had some real competition, even if its Ugh-uh.

And everyone knows, or should know, that Saban's biggest strength is recruiting. I am hoping the NIL destroys bama recruiting. And Ugh-uh recruiting.
14  Sports / VTTW Message Board / Re: VTTW/ESPN Bowl Pickem.......... on: January 11, 2022, 05:27:36 EST
Well, I'm predicting taking the bronze 'cause there's no way these teams are getting anywhere near 73 for the (my) over/under.

You can hope for OT
15  Sports / VTTW Message Board / A lot of dawg fans can't stand Bennett on: January 11, 2022, 05:21:53 EST
they are going to feel vindicated after this I guess

but he has a chance to redeem himself
16  Sports / VTTW Message Board / Re: Kirby and Nick are worried about NIL. 😭 on: January 11, 2022, 05:00:06 EST
I can't dispute that, but that wasn't really the point of my earlier post. The point was, what if some of them did decide to get into big time athletics with NIL.
They won't 
17  Sports / VTTW Message Board / Re: The good news: Isaiah Neyor is transferring to UT........ on: January 11, 2022, 12:49:32 EST
Pearl got UT to the Elite 8 in the 2009–10 season....Barnes is getting elite money....top 5 money and last season UT finished 46th in the country....For top 5 elite money all Barnes can do is throw his players under the bus in public....The players he recruited....develops...coaches. He turns KY Derby horses into plow horses...In going on 7 years Barnes has a total of 3 NCAA tourney game wins getting paid elite top 5 money.  

Cunzo Martin took us the same as Barnes....1 sweet 16.

Dang, can't believe I forgot Bruce got us to the Elite 8, lol.

Wont argue that overall Pearl was better, and (much as I hate to admit it) still is, but certainly Barnes has us close to where we were with Pearl, typically contenders for the SEC, ranked, and with expectations of a decent seed in the tourney.

We all know that unfortunately Barnes just hasn't been that good in the tourney. I don't know if anyone has a reason for that, but I have observed he usually does good in the first game and it's pretty much crap after that. So maybe he is just a HC that needs scouting time and/or time to build a game plan.  I'm sure there is probably more to it than that, but that's my guess anyway.
18  Sports / VTTW Message Board / Re: Kirby and Nick are worried about NIL. 😭 on: January 11, 2022, 12:43:55 EST
I think it also goes against the grain of Ivy League schools.  They decided a long time ago not to emphasize athletics. I don't see them ever going back on that.
19  Sports / VTTW Message Board / Re: So... if I got this right... on: January 10, 2022, 05:05:47 EST
They tried to lose that game to Houston, but managed to pull it out I guess. 
20  Sports / VTTW Message Board / Re: The good news: Isaiah Neyor is transferring to UT........ on: January 10, 2022, 05:04:58 EST
Atheists never care about faith Smokey    (If you are one)

Barnes needs to perform better for sure.  But I agree with CW that even with underperformance we are either just below or at where we were under Pearl. Pearl never got us past the Sweet 16, and Barnes arguably got a tad closer than Pearl at doing that.

As for this season, it's still early.  One thing I read on another board at the point we had played 8 games, is that half were bad and half were good, with little in between. One would hope the percentage of good increases over time, but it seems to be going the other way.  I'll say what I've been saying, is that it's still early.  Hoping the trend is up from here on in.

Let me add that LSU at home is not exactly a pushover either.

Finally I do agree that Fulky could have fewer minutes, but I think he should remain a starter. 
21  Sports / VTTW Message Board / Re: Kirby and Nick are worried about NIL. 😭 on: January 10, 2022, 04:59:58 EST
Yep.  They like it the way it is and want to keep it that way.

There are two sides to this. Some think the "big dogs will get bigger".  Lane Kiffin for instance, the week they played bama, specifically cited To'to and the WR from OSU (Williamson maybe?) as examples of Saban getting "just the missing pieces" and "they are so much better with those two players".  Which is true.  But I have always thought the opposite, which is that the combination of the portal with NIL will make it easier for other teams to gain ground on bama and uga.  I guess we will see.

As for the just NIL part, there have always been haves and have nots.  The NIL just makes it more open to be a have if the alumni want to step up.  How many alumni have avoided the seamy side of the under the table money will now step up? I guess we will find out.
22  Sports / VTTW Message Board / Re: Tyler "the yoyo" Baron back out of the portal on: January 08, 2022, 03:25:52 EST
Yes, if he is healthy next year he can return to his early season form, hopefully
23  Sports / VTTW Message Board / Re: Vols Beckwith, Baron and Albright to the portal........... on: January 07, 2022, 05:40:19 EST
Makes sense.  Baron played well early then kind of disappeared.

The good news is, this frees up three portal spots. 
24  Sports / VTTW Message Board / Re: Lady Vols 73...#25 Texas A&M 45...FINAL* on: January 07, 2022, 05:38:46 EST
Harper has them playing well.  I think she is coming through for the program.   Very impressive outing tonight.
25  Sports / VTTW Message Board / Re: My Aunt Mamie shoots better than this Vol team...... on: January 06, 2022, 07:33:17 EST
Like last year.....good defense and can't score...Maybe can score 1 game then go the next 3 games and can't score at a hookers convention. There was a time last night I thought I was watching a church league team shooting. In fact a church league team looked better shooting.

Can't score in a women's prison with a get out of jail card
