Not bad for a conference that can’t get into the playoffs.
The B1G fought against expanding the the BCS. Then we had two SEC teams go at it and they were left out. They didn't want to expand the CFP. Now they have been left out. Never seem to want what is best for CFB, just for the B1G. They might have a better case if they hadn't been shellacked like they were. Then their middling teams get beat by the SEC middling teams in bowls. Hell, even Botch Jones was undefeated against them. Bottom line, play better football. Having said that, I think the 8 team with the conf champs and three at large are completely doable.
WATCH: Latest ‘SEC Shorts’ hilariously captures how rival coaches reacted to Nick Saban’s hip surgery recovery
Hilarious. They do these shorts very well.
Should be a classic if both teams bring their A game.
A cut throat business. Nothing is certain until the signed agreement is faxed in.
Too funny. Great pic and caption. I am not a basketball fan, but there is something special about this team. Being in Germany, the time difference makes it difficult to watch the games. I am happy for these young men and hope they have continued success.
All well and good, but the tournament will determine who is number one. It would be nice to see UT at the top for however long they can hold it.
Congrats on a great year. Hopefully Stoops will continue to build on it.
It’s just never easy when it is UT.
Congrats on the win. Now maybe they will stop woofing about being in the Natty.
Congratulations to UK on a great victory and 10 win season.
Congrats to UK on the win and a 10 win season. Snell is a beast.
I don’t know if CBJ will ever be ready for a prime time HC position. Hopefully he has learned some things and will be a better person and coach. I am sure someone will give him a chance. It will be interesting to see what happens.
You get a mixed bag with Sark. Should be an interesting search.
Sometimes a change of environment can jump start a person. UT can certainly use the help. All the best young man.
I don't know how much it will influence any of the recruits or family, but it was very well done.
Are you trying to be funny or are you really that dumb? Let's face it, with the athletes Saban brings in, he could run the single wing and still beat everyone.
Well, national media? Where is the outrage that Greg Schiano wasn’t made the head coach? According to you he was Saban mark II.
Yep, UT could have used those extra practices. An up and down year. I hope they get approval from the NCAA. If the players want to play, let them.
Let it go. He paid for his indiscretions. Let him have his second chance and if be blows it, he won't get a third. I guarantee he'll be under a microscope for the first year at a minimum and have to behave. If he can do the right thing the right way, then good on him. If he doesn't, Pruitt will boot him to the curb without hesitation. He won't sink the program over anyone.
Got too much blame for the offensive struggles. Yes, he didn't always plan/call a great game, but first time as a coordinator. He also had a pretty empty cupboard to work with. I wish him the best.
Thank you Alabama for teaching UT humility. Now that the curb stomp is out of the way, win three and get to a bowl.
Tough break for him. Starting to come around and tough as nails. Hopefully it isn’t bad.
Got the SDS newsletter in my box. Opening comment: “Vol Nation! The Tigers are 3-3 and returns home to Neyland Stadium for a showdown with Alabama this weekend! Are you ready? Let’s check in on the latest news from Knoxville as we countdown to kickoff this Saturday. GBO! Why didn’t someone tell me we were the Tigers, not the Vols anymore? For professionals who write for a living, this kind of mistake is beyond inexcusable.

Idiots in the stands think they can do anything they want to. No one including the jerk would have the guts to face these guys one on one.
Happy for him. Glad things are turning out for him. Hopefully things continue to go well.
He did not play well, but gets too much blame. He wasn’t the one constantly being torched by UT receivers.
They deserved to celebrate a good victory. Long time coming.
Rapid Reaction: Tennessee shocks Auburn, snaps SEC losing streak in signature victory for Jeremy Pruitt
So much of this game is attitude. If the locker room trials and tribulations are correct, then this is a teaching point. UT does not yet have the talent of an Auburn, but played much better. It will be interesting to see how both teams react to this result going forward.
