Gaulden calls out Herby

Recommended Posts

Damn getting interesting. While I was one who thought Gaulden got off light, I totally agree with his take.

 

 

 

The one difference though is committing this act when you're getting your brains kicked in and Baker doing when they're winning. Still, Gaulden called him out.

This was Yahoo's front page, lead headline story earlier

 

 

Saying Mayfield is misunderstood is a reasonable opinion that can be easily backed up. But not after establishing a different set of standards for another player who previously committed similar actions. Someone as smart and high-profile as Herbstreit has to be consistent.

 

There’s no logical way to explain how Gaulden flipping off fans is worthy of being off the team while Mayfield’s competitive spirit has “gotten the best of him†when grabbing himself and shouting expletives at the other team.

 

Good for Gaulden for pointing that out.

 

 

Tennessee's Rashaan Gaulden calls out Kirk Herbstreit for conduct double standard

Honestly, I don't blame Kirk on this one. If the issue is the act and that is the only thing we are looking at then yes Kirk should be corrected. If the issue is being so undisciplined that you act this obnoxious when your are getting your tails kicked all over the place then I am not so sure this is the same thing. Baker was committing a flagrant obscene gesture but at least he was winning. Gaulden was dumb enough to do something obscene when you're getting your asses handed to you. 

 

If just comparing the two acts only then yes Kirk is wrong. 

 

Then again hell Kirk is already in the Vol fan dog house so what's one more thing to tick off Vol fans?

Typical outsider media like this guy, Peter Thamel, who's not qualified to opine the first damn thing with intellect and credible knowledge.

LOSER: TENNESSEE 

In the end, Tennessee ended up with an inferior coach, an overmatched athletic director and setting a new standard for a disastrous coaching search. The hires that former athletic director John Currie was on the cusp of making – Greg Schiano and Mike Leach – are exponentially more accomplished and better qualified for the Tennessee job.

 

But Phil Fulmer’s power play ended up with him in control as athletic director and Alabama defensive coordinator Jeremy Pruitt as coach. Pruitt is just inexperienced enough that Fulmer will be able to keep sticking his nose in the program, which is what he’s wanted since he was run out of the job nearly a decade ago. (The classic clueless Fulmer moment was treating the press conference to dismiss Currie like he’d just been hired as coach again, as his tone – including introducing his family in attendance – showed a stunning lack of self-awareness.) Opposing SEC athletic directors, by the way, are giddy to have Fulmer in charge, as his administrative acumen presents little threat to the rest of the league. Expect Tennessee’s glory to remain faded.

You sure Savage didn't write that?   :laughing1:

 

Other then the part about Pruitt being an inferior coach. Do strongly disagree there.

 

I agree with every single word of what he said about Fulmer.

 

Probably did  :devilsmoke:

 

Edited for civility.
