Carolina might have something to say about that...we need to play all 40 mins on defense!
Sounds like it's gonna be fun for Smart the next couple of weeks on the court... he'll be hearing about this I am sure!
Seriously?!....still have too many holes to fill...but good step forward!
the only people squawking about Phil coaching, meddling or otherwise leaving Pruitt alone were the people on these boards...never heard any talking head or read any article questioning otherwise...please produce!
Have you talked/know or were a former minor league player...? The pay sucks, the travel is endless, the seasons are long, and the boarding is awful!
Tennessee SOS 24th and Auburn is 26th our RPI is 4th Auburn is....14th. Saw where some Vandy Fan was spouting about our schedule...please tell me how VA, or Meechigan is any better?! His excuse...Zags and Kansas were formerly ranked #1 & 2 at the beginning of the season...they are both still ranked in the top 7 (#5 - #7) halfway through the season. Regardless, it is all about where you end up in March!
Apologists? If he served tenderloin you would be commenting on his arrogance...
It's been purported...the coaching rumor mill has it...an anonymous source who wishes to remain anonymous...
The only thing this guy did not have to work with was an offensive line...WR's and RB's are talented and proved it...when they had the opportunity. With Morris, Lampley and possibly others..fingers crossed, rabbits foot in pocket et. al. Wright; help will be on the way! However, we will still need a couple of recruiting classes to shape up this offensive line.
Because, other conferences play a nine game schedule. I happen to think he is right on the money with his comments. Truth hurts sometimes.
wow...how about cuz LSU made you play @ 45 percent? Fields...as big a story as Tua?! Yes, it's not like Fileds hasn't had his chance to demonstrate that all year long, whereas the other guy was inserted in the 2nd half of the national championship game and won!
CrankE, you have been a loong time poster on various Vol sites, and I have always found you insightful, but I believe you to be off base here. I don't see where he is "coaching" anyone - unless this has been reported elsewhere? Why wouldn't he offer support (not a vote of confidence) this team needs it and quite frankly so does the fan base, hell I do! Why/how could anyone find it surprising that he might take special interest in the football program, which is the lifeblood of UT sports, besides the fact he is the AD, a former HOF coach and the main reason why he was hired...to hire a successful coach capable of bringing back championships.
Stay Committed Wayna, you are a difference maker that can help turn this thing around. Can't wait to see you playing with Trey!
Good to hear, this is exactly the kind of attitude, leadership and culture this team so desperately needs.
Well, we can't block anyone or get pressure on the Quarterback..should be a marshmallow game. The team that makes a play on special teams here probably wins...and Callaway seems to play fair catch alot instead of returning a ball
Agree with most of what you stated with the exception of never having a winning streak similar to that of Florida's over a team. Tennessee has had two of the longest winning streaks in NCAA history.
What "thing" are you referring to, the fact we are still the 98' NCs?. More likely the fact that SDS is the one doing a week long celebration of the 20th Annie of the 98 team. The University of Tennessee and our "ridiculous" fans will officially recognize and celebrate the anniversary of the championship during the Florida game.
Hater? Seems like he makes some pretty good points?!
Sure would like to see some dominating play from this position again! Seems like it has been along time since we had a couple of LBs that would hunt and destroy.
I agree. Also, the UT administration's did themselves and the program no favors by not publicly quelling those "Grumors" making the fanbase look even more fanatical, and stupid. This is likely another reason we have a new AD!
Can't disagree more! Kirk has always demonstrated his non-biased opinions and I think gives great analysis to all games, is spot on most of the time with how he views the games from a tactical standpoint. He has often praised the SEC when it is warranted. Those who disagree are just haters, nothing more.
But wait, you missed that the Tennessee coaching search continues to either "drag" or "wear" on. The most important piece of journalistic information provided with each one of his articles.
Protecting him? Nice interpretation. We should be taking ownership of the fiasco that has been happening for far too long and allows fan bases like yours to make comments to fuel the fire.
Let's not start bashing Gruden now. This has been what has made this whole coaching hire a joke. Jon Gruden wasn't coming, and tons of fans kept that noise going, and Currie should have stopped that mess early and that is why (a big reason) he is gone. Yeah, Gruden could have said I like what I am doing and I am staying, but did he have too, no. Stop saying he is no friend to the University, just because of how this thing with him turned out, this is the UT administration's fault. Jimbo said it in his presser yesterday and Phil has said it for years, it starts all the way at the top, from the BOT, to the University Pre, Chancellor, on down. UT has been abysmal in this arena for 20 years and this is why we are at the bottom needing to work our way up.
