If you like fresh air... If you don't like traffic jams and rude people and the coldness that tends to permeate large metropolitan areas such as New York... If you don't like government regulators getting into your business... If you get annoyed at how the cell-phone companies are gouging you on their monthly rates and bi-annual contracts... Then you'll appreciate the lyrics to "Rocky Top."

He's probably going to have a lot of opportunities to return Kick-offs.
I agree with Dabo. Expansion is not needed. If you expand it to 6 teams, 12 teams, 32 teams... whatever... the final four of that format is probably going to include two or three or four teams named Alabama, Clemson, Ohio State and/or Oklahoma.
Uhh, no. And you might want to replace the batteries in your sarcasm detector.
I got better things to do with my time than zooming in on a graphic to squint my eyes and try to determine which name is actually on a trophy used in a photo prop. For instance, in the time it takes to do all that, I could have read two paragraphs of a Negan post.
Well done MSU & Vandy! Wish we were there. Best of luck!
The PAC drug their feet on the BCS, too. Just wanted their champion to play in the Rose Bowl, and they didn't even participate in the first few years of the BCS. Time for paybacks.
Connor, the 4-team playoff is what you wanted 8-9-10 years ago... Are you not entertained?* Suppose we (in your words) add some spice. To quote you: "In football, we’ve learned the more games you play, the more likely the cream will rise to the top." So if you add 6 teams, 8 teams, 12 teams, etc., wouldn't it follow that the last four teams would be Alabama/Clemson/Ohio State/Oklahoma? You know they will be seeded to avoid each other until the last four, right? So any of these new systems will result in more fatigue. Keep it at four. *classical reference
How are you "counting" the "countless" ?
I'm starting to think how far away this game is in terms of how many coaching staffs will we have gone through before actually playing the game. Like, for the 2028 season opener, that game is probably 2 or 3 coaching staffs away until we play it.
I'm thinking it will be some sort of penalty-kick shoot-out. Seriously, if you're just going to run 2-pt plays, just go back to the way it was and call the game a tie.
That's basically your reputation here, Corch, in the comments section. Think on that.
Well they let Johnny Knoxville field some punts to open an episode of Jackass (youtube it!), so why not?
Not the Arkansas loss. Jumped out to an early 14-0 lead, but Arkansas managed to tie it up by halftime, and Tennessee never led the game at all in the 2nd half. Agree with your larger point, though.
"Because of his [Dobbs] issues, some UT fans didn’t appreciate what he accomplished." What are you talking about, Joe Cox? What issues? Who are the UT fans don't appreciate Dobbs? Really -- who are they?
Gameday and so many other parts of ESPN programming feel like the "3G" era, in that once everyone got smartphones and apps to push information and updates, ESPN doesn't feel like must-see TV anymore. Hasn't for a long time.
If I'm Northern Iowa, I am going to be running a lot of sweeps and/or screens to the Youngstown State side of the field -- maybe an out route or two (tackle eligible if need be) to put this coach on his ass.
"Apparently poaching the same position from other Power 5 programs apparently isn’t limited to the head coaching position, which Tennessee hasn’t done since stealing Johnny Majors from Pitt in 1977." What? And apparently you tend over-use the word apparently.
This Etheridge guy -- the HS Football coach -- has been a Head Coach at four (4) different High Schools since 2015. What is going on? What does he know about "100% commitment" to a school? He's probably good buddies with Pruitt or Ansley or maybe some other coach on the old staff with Alabama connections and he's pitching a fit to trick some gullible opinion writer to do a hit-piece on Tennessee. WELL THAT WON'T WORK with CONNOR O'GARA on the job!
For a second there, I was sort of expecting to see UCF pop up in this article.
O'Gara alleged "3 of [the] 4 quarterbacks who took a 2020 snap [entered] the transfer portal." So he's not talking about Kasim Hill.
I guess that's one way to get SEC talent over in the Big XII. Maybe they think they can compete now.
I can't help but hear Samuel L. Jackson in my head, saying: "English... Do you speak it....? I might have left out a couple of words here.
It's funny. So many people try to tell us Tennessee football is irrelevant, and yet, we have dozens and dozens of articles, and hundreds of comments (mostly from non-Vols) from these articles. If you don't care about Tennessee football, then scroll on past it. Trolling is caring.
Yah. Fulmer tried to be clever by hiring away an Alabama assistant. He thought he'd be weakening Alabama while at the same time hiring a coach. Too clever by half.
That's like saying the food was good after being forced to close your restaurant and fire your head chef plus two other cooks and a handful of other staffers, after the results of an internal investigation into food poisoning revealed there was a salmonella outbreak. But his retirement was not related at all to any of this. Either he knew and did nothing and should have been fired along with everyone else, or he didn't know at all - in which case he should have been fired for incompetence.
