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."

[channeling Lloyd Christmas] So you're saying there's a chance...
cclausen71 -- Who are you, and what did you do with the usual troll who comments with that username on Tennessee articles?
Nick Saban: "He can't coach on the field, aight." Tennessee fans: Tell us something we don't already know, aight?
Did Crist get fired? Or did he get take a "promotion" and go to bleacher report?
Yikes! HTB - Hunt The Ball? That's what was emblazoned on Tennessee's famed sideline-trashcan. Sonuvabutch!
I like how he repeats the "no-nonsense" descriptor. He understands that Butch Jones and his "Butchisms" were a lot of "non-sense." Heh.
I think the comment section here actually pointed out Minshew's likely reasoning.
So he's right AND wrong? That's a really bold stance you took there, Mr. O'Gara.
Our hometown paper always seems to be trying to dig up dirt on the University.
Our education apparatus built by the baby boomers (and run by liberals) has failed our millennials, who today believe they have a "right" not to be "offended." There is no such right. And Max Kellerman has nothing more than personal, anecdotal support for his claim -- he is just virtue signaling his like-minded supporters to show his SJW chops. What's next? The Green Bay Packers? The San Diego Padres? The Boston Celtics? The New York Yankees? The Pittsburgh Steelers? I'm sure you can find some mentally unstable person who claims to be offended (and experiences mental anguish) at the word, "Yankee," and so the logical conclusion of this stupid train of thought would be to get rid of the NYY's nickname as well.
Actually, Fulmer's 10-5-1 record against Alabama was his coaching record, and doesn't include his years as a player. During his four years of college (1968-1971), Tennessee went 3-1 against Alabama.
Baker Mayfield didn't exactly set the world on fire when he came to Neyland Stadium in 2015, either. He finished with 187 yards passing, but some of those stats are padded due to the game going to double overtime.
this guy can't even be honest about the team he supports
I guess if it has two pairs of square quotes then it would be okay. For example: University of Central Florida 2017 "National" "Champions"
So... some "threats" were made. Guess they learned from Jim McElwain not to call them "death" threats.
Where does it say Tennessee State is a Junior College? Or is that just one of those ninja-edits made by the author (without acknowledging the correction and hoping readers don't know about common journalistic standards)?
Top .... Men... Nice reference! And it sure seems to fit.
MWB -- you quoted coach as saying, " and him will possibly set down and..." Now, come on, man! You know he meant to say 'sit' down and not 'set' down.
As a thought experiment, who would be against this and why?
10-15-20 years ago, eh? Hey Butch... 20 years ago today, Tennessee won the National Championship. You didn't come close to doing that. 10 years ago (the 2007 season), we lost to the eventual national champion LSU, in the SECCG, by 7 points on a pick-6. Remind me of how that SECCG you coached in ended up.
Not only that, but with the low-prestige bowls happening early on, and the better bowls happening later... on the day that the Pac-12's bowl season ends is pretty much the day the SEC's bowl season is just getting started.
Nobody is making the case that Schiano would have been a better coach for Tennessee than Pruitt. Nobody.
The year Hornung won the trophy, he led his team to two (2) wins.
Congratulations, Coach Majors! P.S. If y'all think Peyton Manning got robbed for the Heistman trophy, go back and read about the voting for this award back in 1956.
