Good Luck Kmac. Thanks for being a VFL!
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.
A smile is all you've got Urbie, that wasn't an answer.55 says it all!

CClausen71, Mr home Decor, please go hang some blinds, sell some, make recommendations to my next door neighbors wife, or whatever is that panzy occupation but please get a life and stop waiting on the next Vol coaching article to post your bulldog loving opinion on us hillbillies. We all know Ned Beaty's purty mouth sure did "squeal like a pig" in the hills of Jawja! Gotta love it thar precious. I think I'll take the Sunbrella shades!
No thanks. I was kind of excited when I heard he was coming in to coach the DL at the beginning of the year. Sadly, I have been unimpressed. Maybe it is the gutting of our linebackers and secondary, not sure. Whatever it is, just hasn't worked out. Next!
OMG?! Really, is this the excuse we are going to hear from Dawg fans?! Awbun kicked it plain and simple. You guys were kidding yourselves thinking you were actually #1 in the country. I posted before and today proved it, Bama. Even with the injuries, Bama still beats AU and UGA.
Lose Kirkland before the season starts, Jennings the first game, our other LB the 3rd game, Kelly our AA KR, player suspensions for one reason or another and now down to a rotation of what 7 now maybe 5 OL? FSU was talked about like the 2nd coming. They lose one player and everybody gives them a pass. Do people really look at why a season goes awry?
I posted in an earlier article about Frost's pedigree. I would much prefer him coming to K-town over anyone. He would understand the culture, and would not have to have the 5 stars to be competitive. Can coach both offense, defense and develop players. Unfortunately, I would not be surprised, if Dr. Tom hasn't already placed a call for his son to come home. I am sure they aren't sitting on their dam thumbs waiting until the season ends...to see how things unfold, or whatever UT is doing!!
Jawja is good, but does anyone really believe they are better than the tide?!
I remember when Florida fans were calling Grier a Prima Dona, when it was rumored he was going to transfer and telling him good riddance. Well, "how do you like me now"?
This has been the recurring theme of the Butch Jones era...
Why, because we have actually won National Championships?? Hell even a conference championship would be nice for you. Who is delusional. BTW, despite the crappy season we are having, still a pretty solid class coming in, unless it falls apart with the coaching change. Check the last 5 recruiting cycles and tell me top recruits won't/aren't coming. Ho back to fishing.
#7! Imagine if Tennessee was actually winning!? Haven't been in the big dance since 14' struggling in football, even lady Vols BB has been painful to watch. Thank goodness for... Softball.
And just how do you propose he do that?
Now this is the kind of leadership this team needs. It won't matter who is back at QB if this line can't protect and open some holes. Keep the game plan simple!
He seems more than an upgrade. He has been coached by some of the games greatest of all time, Osborne, Walsh, Belichick and Parcells. He has demonstrated successfully that he can coach offense and defense and now has brought UCF from a winless season before he arrived to unbeaten in two seasons. Unfortunately, with the recent firing of the Nebraska AD, home will come-a calling!
Agreed! Always liked Stallings. Loved his response to the media''s "noise" when he started at Bama 0-2. "Look we're just trying to win a football game". Well, that he did and then some. One of my favorite bowl games of all time was watching the 92' team dismantle the trash talking Miami Hurricanes. Can you say George Teague!
Hopefully, and that's alot of hoping, the practice reps will help over the leadership reps..or whatever they call them for backups nowadays. Can we please see some hot passes and screens to John Kelly, and someone put out an APB on our TE. A deep posts once in season and some physical O-line play would be great too!
Can't afford? Smart is making less money than Jones is currently. So what makes you think excluding a Kelly or a Gruden they can't get some hot name coach for fair market value. I believe Kirby was a hot shot coaching prospect wasn't he!? Given the last two hires, I would have to think they are willing this time around. I would also suggest that with Fulmer on board, there might be some behind the scenes fundraising to accommodate the required cash needed.
Well, your inside source is partly uninformed. Dooley's final payment for hapless services rendered was in December of 2016 to the tune of $102,049, which was being overpaid to him monthly since he was fired on Nov 18, 2012. I agree with allocating monies pending the hire of a new coach already employed, most hiring schools generally pay that coaches buyout dollars. However, this will all come down to the coach or coaches targeted. Kelly would demand top dollar, so would Gruden whom I wish UT fans would stop talking about like he would consider leaving his posh settings. I think someone like Venables who has produced at two successful programs would make a great candidate and also a good fit, unlike Kelly. Scott Frost also seems to be doing a good job.
I had a problem more with how Jones followed up with PFs question in him about his presser on SECNation than the actual press conference.
This is typical PF. Praises Nick Saban for what I would call more of an actual rant, and then blasts BJ for questioning the media! Nothing to see here, keep it moving.
