This game proves that without Alabama's bagmen bringing in consecutive #1 recruiting classes, Nick Saban would be an above average coach. I guess Alabama will need to step up their payments if they want to stay at the top.
I've been to SC a few times. Beautiful state. My uncle played on the 82 Clemson team. I think it was 82. They won a national championship whatever year it was. Anyways, I've been to both schools and I don't believe I could ever go to USC. Clemson is way nicer. Not as nice at UT but nice.
Butch is an intern right now. A well paid intern. Lol
Coaches are judged on W/L. I hope we don't give him an extension and raise. His recruiting is average, and frankly we are 3-5 in his second season. I'm just being reasonable here. I'm looking at the long game and not just a victory over USC.
If you want fans to show up then give us a program worth rooting for. We have been in the dumps for over a decade, and we keep hiring lame duck coached. I hope Pruitt works out, but so far in his career I'm just not seeing it
Learn how to properly reply you ancient dinosaur. Surprised you even know how to use a computer. I'm even more surprised you don't start every sentence with, "Back in my day...".
Dude, go cry to your wife/sister you inbred hick. Did you even attend Alabama? I highly doubt it. I doubt if you even graduated high school.
With Tua out, we had a legitimate shot at winning this game. That is until the offensive black hole known as JG came in.
This game isn't really a rivalry anymore. What's funny is that I remember thinking Alabama wasn't much of a rival in the late 90s because we had beaten them so many times in a row. I was a kid back then. I hope to live long enough to see UT not consider Alabama a rival again.
Butch has no self-awareness. It's a shame. I would have never smoked a cigar. I would have used it on Saban's daughter like Clinton used it on Monica.
I knew this was a Dave Hooker article just be reading the title of it. Dude is the Jerry Springer of journalism.
People like violence. They enjoy watching a team get murdered.
I hope Toyota is paying this guy and not just the radio station. Lol. Sounds like an awful means of promotion for him. Hah
The only thing that matters are wins. I'm glad he is talking about improvement, but it sure isn't translating to the field.
I never believed that UT would fire Pruitt after two years. I will say this though, if our record doesn't improve next year and recruiting stays down, then Pruitt will be gone.
I agree. The administration has really screwed us over with these coaching hires. I guess they don't care about spending money if fans will show up regardless. I would have much rather taken a chance on a guy who has actual HC experience like Norvell than Pruitt.
I feel a lot better with Maurer in. It just depends if Coach Doofus will keep him in. If he does then we might get a FBS win this year.
Another blowout loss for Pruitt, and fans are saying we had a moral victory. Sad things are this bad.
Dude, Tennessee has been garbage for the past decade. What was our lowest recruiting class during this time? I'm sure you attached yourself to Dooley and Jones as well. In two years you'll be wanting Pruitt fired, and then defending the next lame duck hire. I graduated from UT, and I feel that Tennessee football is dead. Fan support declined last season and it's going to get worse this season.
