I used to think Tennessee was the new Nebraska. Now they’re the new SMU.
This is definitely a Tennessee move: find a person less qualified than Pruitt.
Better than you since 1998: Texas: 199-84 Tennessee: 168-109
Tennessee is probably better off hiring the coach at Army so he can run the triple option. Might be the only way to start winning again.
Not sure why a kid would want to go to Tennessee right now
Not sure you should be complaining about his record. Mr. 8-8 would be a step up from 3-7.
Honestly, I think Tennessee finds a way to lose this game. I'm not sure how and I'm not sure of the score.... but I don't see Tennessee pulling this one off.
Tennessee hasn't been relevant since 2001.
When was the last time Mizzou won a natty? I'll wait.
Tennessee definitely doesn't have the stones to fire Pruitt and chase Freeze. That's why they're mediocre at best in this era.
Tennessee's been irrelevant since they won their natty in the '98 season. They'll probably continue being irrelevant.
I'm not sure if I've ever read so many words in succession that were devoid of rational thought.
As an impartial third party, I would say that if he has been ruled as innocent of any wrong-doing then he should have the opportunity to rejoin the team with conditions.
Unless you're a Tennessee fan. I was a TN fan when I was a kid. Went to a game in Lexington when I was 7 when TN still had the streak going (this was '95). I remember that after the game finished, a grown man spit on me because I was decked out in orange. We went out to my dad's Jeep and found that his TN tire cover had been slashed open. We never went back.
Interesting comment from a program with a 499-557-36 record.
"I guess I'm just a conspiracy theorist." No kidding, sunshine.
Volunteer fans can’t hold back their excitement after watching Harrison Bailey throw during first Tennessee spring practice
Because Clemson's defense did a great job of stopping LSU, right?
I bet 1980 feels like stepping in a time machine doesn't it?
Then take it from a Longhorn: If you assume the talent level was equal since Kirby used his own recruits and Pruitt used Kirby's recruits.... Pruitt's defenses were statistically better.
You have a point. All they had to do was let Kentucky snatch defeat from the jaws of victory like much of the last three decades.
PLEASE GOD LET THIS HAPPEN
I guess they need to be able to beat one team from the SEC. Can't lower the bar any further than that!
The goofy-lookin' gator is dead wrong here. They're more like Sewanee's practice squads.
And to think, the Vols had him within their grasp as a potential hire. Tennessee's going to keep doing Tennessee things, I guess.
The answer: no. They couldn't avoid a 0-2 start. They'll probably go 1-11 this year. Chatt might be their only possible victory this season and after Ga. St., that's not a given either.
Awfully optimistic, aren't we?
Dude, I was raised on TN football and can still remember seeing Peyton play in person in 1996 against Vanderbilt. I was at the Air Force game for Inky's injury in 2005. I still remember the national title game for the '98 season. I was watching Hey Arnold at half time. Sooner or later, you have to decide whether or not it's worth getting bent out of shape over. I decided that the powers that be didn't really care, so why should I? I live in Austin now and proudly support the Longhorns seeing as how they're the reason I have a Masters degree.
I'm 30 years old, grew up a Tennessee fan, and dropped them like a bad habit after Dooley's Kentucky loss. Ultimately, we are judged based on our competency. The result? The Matthew Principle: To those who have everything, more will be given and from those who have nothing, everything will be taken. That more or less describes the SEC for the last fifteen years.
