I don’t think that type of scheme translates as well in the SEC as it does the Big XII/Pac 12. This is largely the Hal Mumme air raid, which didn’t seem to have the same spark at UK. Granted, scaling it up at a higher quality institution that prioritizes football could lead to a better result. Given the abysmal state of the program, I think a defensive guru who can right the ship is a better pick than a gamble with Leach. If you pair Leach with a Kevin Steele-tier quality def coordinator, then perhaps you’ve got a better answer than Pruitt.
Wasn’t Corch in one of those episodes or was that Uncle Lou?
Imagine an 80 iq person calling a multi-millionaire stupid....
He or Lane might be at Auburn soon
I think UT will win the head to head given the losses of Allen and Snell. I realize it’s not entirely valid to compare last year to the next; however, the best UK team in my lifetime got thoroughly out-coached last year. I just don’t see UT or Pruitt regressing relative to last year. It could change drastically either way if the injury bug hits.
For the media to vote 3 of Vandy’s players as second team offense, then last in the east, the rest of the team must be garbage.
Also worth mentioning-big bad Kash Daniel had a whopping 2 tackles in that game. The same guy SDS tells us can steal Daniel Cormier’s lunch money. Allegedly.
I assume you’re not referring to the most recent 24-7 beatdown of the 12th ranked Mildcats? If you’re team and coach of the century can’t get it done against one of the worst Vol teams, who will?
I still give it to the west due to the dominance of top teams. I think it shakes out something like below. 1. Bama>UGA 2. LSU>UF 3. Auburn>mizzou 4. USC=aTm 5. UK>state 6. Vandy>ole miss 7. UT>Arky
I agree with B&G that UT bears the title of worst team, until proven otherwise. I also believe the days of Vandy dominance are over starting this season. I expect this is the year where UT starts to regularly beat the teams they should, finishing ahead of UK and Vandy and somewhere in the mix of Mizzou and SC. For now, this is just a prediction and Vandy remains the better team and coach.
While they could beat Fl and I think it won’t be a blowout loss, I’ll never pick UT to win this game. Pruitt has a great first year and showed signs of excellence by outcoaching 2 top 25 teams with perhaps the worst roster in the SEC. I also won’t say UT is much closer to UF when they can’t even prove they’re much closer to Vandy. UT is still one coaching failure away from being the next Minnesota, Army, Georgia Tech. I will say it’s good to have confident players, but shut your trap until UT is no longer the most embarrassing program in college football.
Ah ok-so there’s a min number of wins and trash talk is ok? Maybe when we struggle again this year, we can finally purge the NegaVols
I give them nothing until they beat Vandy

The kid interviewing him must be the envy of the entire high school-to have that role as a summer job.
Dave Hooker is so terrible at sports journalism that Trump actually tweets words of encouragement to him.
Stoops’ coaching looked Dollar General quality in Neyland last year.
Hey Dave-that line about doesn’t care what sportswriters think? Same with the entire fanbase. Where will you work when you blow this final chance at sports journalism relevancy? You know-like you did at the KNS and radio.
Aramark-the company that can’t even get prison food right. Zero confidence in their abilities to roll this out. Let’s call on that ancestral spirit and keep bootlegging whiskey into Neyland!
He could have read “A tale of two cities” or the DC phone book
To be clear, you’re going to condemn the multiple episodes of trash talk Dan Mullen has done this offseason? I’m not a fan of trash talk and don’t condone it when the UT product is what it’s been. Surely you’ll do the same so as not to be hypocritical?
Also, feel free to continue to accuse me of dodging an argument while you just did the same multiple times, even though I had the courtesy to extend the olive branch and also address your previous comments. You then go on a rhetorical rant while accusing me of the same, in spite of discussing and conceding some of your points. No hypocrisy there.
Very civil reply. I guess we could forgive and forget but you appear to continue the attacks. I’m not banking on social security because retirees will have cashed out of the untenable scheme that was so graciously foisted on me. Fortunately I’ve got a great career in spite of the blessed unions that ran manufacturing off to Asia. You whine about somebody being in the wrong lane, but can’t see past your own greed and violence backed retirement scheme, how hypocritical. I don’t expect any less from the most selfish generation in US history.

1. Traffic courts are public record. I also don’t think this is a good usage of taxpayer time and dollars and I’m sure the individual involved could easily be identified with some digging. The shaming is to the individual, not this Longhorn Morty character. 2. Ideology and rhetoric aren’t debate? 3. Ok-not arbitrary-I’ll concede. Now why don’t you debate the rest of my points, as you’ve demanded? Also, I guess you’ll be holding the UGA trolls to the same standards or decorum? 4. I guess it hit a nerve bc it’s the line of work for a family member? It was a bit rude, so I’ll take back that comment against you. Fair?
To be clear, the subject of the article deals with police and public interaction. I’m commenting on this and my comments were directed at the issue. It’s on point with the subject of the article. You might have a point if I randomly brought this up on the Vegas lines article. I’m sure you’ll hold your fellow UGA fans to that same subject matter standards when they go off-topic with the personal insults and trolling, right?
I’m fine with humor and personality, provided said humor isn’t belittling members of the public they’ve sworn to serve.
Nice ad hominem-it’s an open forum (specifically one that welcomes hot takes).
I didn’t say they were worthless, it’s not an easy job. I just don’t think they should belittle those they’ve sworn to serve, particularly given the services they provide have an implied threat of violence. Attempts to paint me as someone who wishes harm on police or celebrates is a garbage false equivalency. Debate my exact argument.
So I’m apparently approving of this? That’s a false equivalency you’re using because you’re unwilling to debate my argument. I don’t want anyone hurt (all lives matter), I just disagree with the govt monopoly of force and think public servants should humbly and gratefully serve the public.
