But...but...but defense.

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

Calbert didn't play much this year.

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.

I have no idea....but I've read we aren't hitting the portal very hard?

If true...maybe we can move a few of our 44 wide receivers over to DB's and rush ends

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

I have gotten a chuckle out of everyone defending Fulkerson. Yeah, Fulky is a crowd favorite and maybe Barnes should've had enough perception awareness to realize that you don't speak ill of Fulky publicly. But I would almost guarantee you that Fulkerson doesn't want or need anyone's defense. First of all, everyone knows Barnes' M.O. by now. It was his M.O. at Texas and it has been his M.O. since he's been at Tennessee. He will call players to the mat publicly in an effort to get them to produce. Regardless of whether Barnes was right or wrong about Fulkerson (he wasn't wrong), if there's one player on that roster who can take the criticism, who would not shy away from the criticism, who will use the criticism to make himself better, it's John Fulkerson.

Fulkerson has no business being back for a 6th season...he is not that good. Barnes has done a bad job recruiting big men worth a salt and needs Fulky to take up for it.

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.  

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.

Being paid elite we need some elite results....Also being paid elite he needs to take the blame a lot...not throw his players under the bus.

Give the Titans credit.....Losing Henry for 9-10 weeks plus missing several key players they have done a heck of a job getting to this point.

That being said....two of their losses have come from about the worst teams in the NFL...the NY Jets and the Houston Texans. Both they should have beat soundly.....And I will not be shocked in the least if they go to Houston this week and get thumped.
15  Sports / VTTW Message Board / Re: Lady Vols 73...#25 Texas A&M 45...FINAL* on: January 07, 2022, 02:56:05 EST
They showed a lot of weapons tonight....Key is much better than last season.

Great job
17  Sports / VTTW Message Board / Re: Vols Beckwith, Baron and Albright to the portal........... on: January 06, 2022, 10:14:07 EST
I have no idea....but mentioned several times that Baron's Dad was pretty much canned by UT?

IIRC he was Director of Player Development.

19  Sports / VTTW Message Board / Re: THREE CONCERNS FOR TENNESSEE COMING OUT OF THE MUSIC CITY BOWL on: January 06, 2022, 04:18:22 EST
Defenses like ours isn't going to be real good going against our style of offense and practicing against it everyday, IMO. Bama's tough nosed defense fell off when they went to a more wide open offense and away from their smash mouth offense....All of us use to laugh at the Big 12 and now we are starting to trend that way.
20  Sports / VTTW Message Board / Re: Texas Bowl tonight on: January 06, 2022, 04:06:38 EST
I give LSU credit for playing with 40 or less scholarship players available and a former receiver at QB.
21  Sports / VTTW Message Board / Re: Pretty crappy sports ending to this year ... on: January 06, 2022, 04:02:35 EST
I'm giggling at your consistent anti-Vol takes, not venting in anger. There's a difference!

You'd have to be as dumb as a Bama fan not to see it.
22  Sports / VTTW Message Board / Re: My Aunt Mamie shoots better than this Vol team...... on: January 06, 2022, 03:57:29 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.
