  • Unhappy anniversary

    Fifty years ago today, Nov. 15, 1969 was a sad Saturday for the Vols who lost to Archie Manning and Ole Miss 38-0 in what is known as "The Jackson Massacre". I was a tenth grader at West High in Knoxville and remember it well. Listened to John Ward's call on the radio. We lived in a married student apt. complex on Sutherland Ave. where the new intramural fields are now. Anyway, several players on the team lived in our complex & I had seen them around from time to time. I remember how mad they were that at the end of the season the best bowl offer they got was the Gator.   That team, chock full of All Americans and talent had just blown through the schedule to that point. Big wins over Auburn, Georgia and Bama already in the bag. And then Kiner had to open his big pie hole.    Here's the write up in the following week's Sports Illustrated, by Pat Putnam.   Answer to a foolish question

    This is not some hate on Bama but I find it strange how Minnesota is not above them at 9-0. Look I get it. I know Minnesota doesn't have much history but if we are truly looking at the teams with the best resumes for this current season how is a team with one loss and the best they have beaten is a mediocre A&M team better than an undefeated team that just beat a top 10 team?       AP Poll:   RANK NAME RECORD POINTS PREV RANK 1 LSU (54) 9-0 1542 1 2 Ohio State (5) 9-0 1480 3 3 Clemson (3) 10-0 1441 4 4 Alabama 8-1 1312 2 5 Georgia 8-1 1267 6 6 Oregon 8-1 1224 7 7 Minnesota 9-0 1164 13 8 Utah 8-1 1099 8 9 Penn State 8-1 1003 5 10 Oklahoma 8-1 1000 9 11 Florida 8-2 934 10 12 Baylor 9-0 932 11 13 Auburn 7-2 871 12 14 Michigan 7-2 744 14 15 Wisconsin 7-2 657 16 16 Notre Dame 7-2 593 15 17 Cincinnati 8-1 567 17 18 Memphis 8-1 510 19 19 Boise State 8-1 371 21 20 SMU 9-1 346 23 21 Navy 7-1 228 25 22 Texas 6-3 199 NR 23 Iowa 6-3 197 18 24 Indiana 7-2 108 NR 25 Oklahoma State 6-3 77 NR   Others receiving votes: Appalachian State 73, Kansas State 67, Texas A&M 42, Wake Forest 38, Louisiana Tech 25, Virginia 12, San Diego State 7, Iowa State 4, Virginia Tech 4, Washington 3, Pittsburgh 2, UCF 2, Air Force 2, USC 1, Illinois 1, North Dakota State 1.           Coaches Poll: RANK NAME RECORD POINTS PREV RANK 1 LSU (55) 9-0 1591 2 2 Ohio State (5) 9-0 1523 4 3 Clemson (4) 10-0 1491 3 4 Alabama 8-1 1356 1 5 Georgia 8-1 1327 6 6 Oregon 8-1 1269 7 7 Minnesota 9-0 1154 13 8 Oklahoma 8-1 1128 8 9 Utah 8-1 1096 9 10 Baylor 9-0 1028 10 11 Penn State  8-1 942 5 12 Florida 8-2 937 11 13 Auburn 7-2 863 12 14 Michigan 7-2 731 14 15 Wisconsin 7-2 670 16 16 Notre Dame 7-2 659 15 17 Cincinnati 8-1 590 17 18 Memphis 8-1 517 19 19 Boise State 8-1 452 21 20 SMU 9-1 326 23 21 Navy 7-1 249 25 22 Iowa 6-3 187 18 23 Texas 6-3 163 NR 24 Appalachian State 8-1 133 NR 25 Indiana 7-2 123 NR   Others receiving votes: Oklahoma State 49; Wake Forest 45; Louisiana Tech 43; Kansas State 38; San Diego State 32; Texas A&M 31; Air Force 25; Virginia Tech 17; Virginia 12; Wyoming 1; UL Lafayette 1; UCF 1.
