@Bama Time and Thomas
Ya'll crack me up. Can we just all agree that we've had some good years and have had some bad years? Alabama has been freaking dominant the passed decade...Auburn has had a few good monents, (Bama is way better though despite the loss this year) and Tennessee has sucked for the most part. TN hasn't come close to Bama other than close games in 2015 and 2010. There was a time when TN regularly beat Bama...Tn used to be a feared titan is the sec. Right now bama is the power house. Auburn has just kinda hung around from time to time.
YESSSS! Maybe now we can upgrade from a turnover trash can to a turnover recycling can!!! I'm so excited!
Brick by brick? I don't don't get it. That sounds really stupid.
Tennessee’s firing of John Currie — whether he was sabotaged or not — takes Rocky Top to improbable new low
At least we're the best at something :)
I couldn't disagree more with your last sentence. Even teams above 10 are as good as some of those in the top 5 such as, TCU and LSU. 6, 7, and 8 teams have been extremely good in the past and very well deserved more than a lowly bowl. A 4 team play off is 2 games while an 8 team play off is 3..one more game isn't gonna kill somebody. "Gladiators" seriously? One more game and they're gladiators fighting to death now? That is absolutely rediculous. It would truly prove who is the best while bringing more viewers to the fantastic college scene.
I want something to do with Kiffin. My IQ is just fine. I'm a smart pup. He's a good coach. We need the Chicken back.
Bring Lane home. He named his son Knox for crying out loud. Lame Chicken needs to come back to Tennessee.
I think Jim Bob Cooter would be a great coach. I think we need a young fired up coach. That was how Nick Saban was and he was nothing spectacular at the time. We should go for Cooter.
We passed the ball on the 1yrd line almost every time? Why not give the ball to Kelly who got them to the one? 3 missed field goals 2 dropped touchdowns. 3 interceptions one of them a pick six. Tennessee won that game about 20 times before the last 9 seconds. Florida isn't even top 3 in the east this year in my opinion. Georgia, TN, and either cocks or vandy are the 3 best in no particular order. I had TN losing to GA and Bama this year. We have to beat Georgia. Tennessee also has to get Muschamp off of their backs. I do not like that man he's not a respectable coach. Anyways I'm done ranting. Go Kelly and Go Vols.
If TN's defense is the slightest bit better...the vols will win by 10 or more. Florida has no QB and so many players out. This looks ugly for the gators. If florida doesn't force at least 2 turnovers they will not win.
Ummmm he's gotten a little better...there is some truth to that though.
I died XD
I got chills...no I really did. That was great. Mann Florida and TN used to be the titans of the SEC and the country. 2014-15 losses to Florida ripped my heart out. I almost cried last year to be honest. This is such a good rivalry. Fantastic article.
They wont beat the hogs? What?
The flag may have been uncalled for but...it was pretty awesome. Way to spark a rivalry.
To be honest I was wondering how many people would jump on that comment. I wasn't serious. Just onw person's life is way more valuable than all of football and a whole lot more. This time is extremely important. They made the right call.
I tried to look it up it's been a long time. TN's offense is gonna be rolling in the swamp. If UF doesn't put together an offense they will drop the 2nd game as well. Sure Florida has a great defense but no defense can stop a half way decent offense all of the time. Plus Uf has a lot of starters suspended. Florida's chances don't look good this year so far.
I'm a Vol and love the SEC. So when the SEC is playing against other conference teams "It's all about the south." This is where the gods of football come to play. Auburn...beat the crap out of Clemson! What the heck is Mizzou doing in the SEC? I don't understand they're not southern nor are they in the east. Plus they suck worse than Vandy which is quite a statement. They aren't good enough consitently to play here.
Wow, again...Florida gets more rest. Florida better fix their offense before they play TN. If they don't Dormady will run up the score while Florida still looks for their first offensive TD.
TN will get there in December. Florida won't. Dormandy will be throwing bombs in the swamp...the vols will leave there in victory.
I hate FSU they always get so lucky against the SEC for some reason. I hope Bama smashes them. I think you are right. Purdue beats Mizzou. Why is MIzzou in the SEC? They aren't in the east and they aren't southern...and they aren't good enough to play in the SEC...why are they here? They need to go back to the big 10 losers conference. Also why does UGA get into the top 15 almost every year and they never preform...every single year.
I'm not concerned for TN's QB situation...both QB's are great and won't screw the ofense up. I am aware that they haven't had much playing time. Tennessee's biggest concerns in my opinion are the OL and the secondary. Alabama will not have problems without Lame Chicken. They just won't...Saban is the god of college football right now. Jake Bentley and Nick fitsijewjewy...whatever...aren't going to play as well as everyone thinks they are. Florida will be fine without their star reciever. Why does Georgia get into the top 15 every year and they never preform? It happens every year almost...
Florida has no chance. If Washington plays Bama (which I doubt will happen unless the play off voters aren't thinking and let Washington in) in the playoff, Alabama will beat them by at least 30 points. Florida will lose by at least 11. Nick Saban is the god of College football right now, he does not lose. He's like Donald Trump...ole Nick always wins.
A&M has a chance. If ya'll can give Knight more than 2 seconds to drop back and throw the ball unlike TN ya'll have a chance. Alabama is not the god of college football, just don't try and beat them at their own game. I don't think a&m will pull it off but of ya'll do, we'll see you in Atlanta. Good luck.
I was wrong Tennessee did not play like Tennessee today.
This game is going to be extremely close. Yes Alabama should win this game but it will not be easy. On paper bama beats the vols....blah blah blah. Again The tide should come out on top but put stats and recent games behind that. This used to be the biggest rivalry in college football...over the past decade it has faded do to TN's poor football seasons. It is finally becoming relavent again and this will be an emotional game for both teams...more for the vols though. Tennessee will be playing for their lives and Alabama not quite so much, a loss to TN...so what, bama still controls their own destiny. This will be close game and it will come down honestly to who ever wants the game more. If Tennessee can hold on to the football, the vols will win this game.
