    UT fans don't care enough about Kentucky to spend time trolling their chat boards. How bad does it suck to be a fan of a perennially irrelevant team that will always be inferior to the team you're trying to insult. They never should have run fiber to his trailer park. Numbnuts.

    They ran me out of Athens the last time I was there... I barely escaped with my life. They didn't appreciate me blasting Rocky Top on my Harley as I rode through that God forsaken town............

    JG's inability to see his best receiver wide open down the middle, streaking toward the endzone, until he has to slow down and wait for his QB to notice, says everything about him. He simply doesn't see the field well enough to be a starting quarterback in the SEC.

    WestKyCat you must face up to a basic fact when it comes to Football traditions Our Stadium is Neyland Stadium, named after General Robert Neyland. A name of Pride, Honor and adoration by the fans.. awarded the Distinguished Service Medal and the Legion of Merit and made a member of the Order of the British Empire in WWII Your stadium is named after a grocery store chain. What is it Piggle-Wiggly Stadium? Houchens Stadium? I forget

    And the ignorant hick throws a tantrum when I bring up his porcine love interest. I obviously hit a nerve with my reference to his illicit animal husbandry habit. What does it say about Kentucky when their bottom feeder football team can't beat UT when we're at our worst? It says your football program sucks - just like they have for over a century and always will. They've never won jack squat. I doubt anyone in our great state ever relied on your little pissant garden for a speck of food. Spare us the pretense of adequacy, Mr. Green Jeans. You assume other people are overweight and out of shape? I'm sure that tractor driving physique is a real turn on for the females in the pen, especially at slop time. I'd love to run into you at a game. That keyboard courage would fade real fast when you had to back up that dumbass mouth. It always amazes me how the most ignorant fans of other teams want to go to a rival board and prove their stupidity. Do yourself a favor and just STFU, numbnuts. I'm sure there's a Kentucky board with equally stupid folks just like you. There you'll be right at home and won't look quite as stupid.

    Surprised he got anything at all. You knew this would be a joke. Three games? TCU being the only real game. I like the have no contact rule. Who actually monitors that? Give me a break.

    I could not agree more. Tradition is not what it used to be, especially when you lose 12 in a row.

    After watching the tape in full, I agree totally....C ya Bye Jeremy. With statements like - you all are pussies and bitches, Ill slap the shit out of them when I get there, I'm a straight up street N!@#$% , I just play football for the University of Tennessee , we shoot cops where I'm from............among others, I don't buy at all that he's a kid bullshit. He's a thug is what he is. I have worn some kind of badge for the last 20 years and I can tell you, Jeremy Banks had better be glad that he is Jeremy Banks. Cops were completely patient and reserved. Anyone else would have gotten handled much differently, with that attitude.

    Of all them Shamburger is the one that has REALLY impressed and makes you wonder why he wasn't even more developed before Pruitt started coaching. Kid is good. I will go back to the Conredge interview on Finebaum. Let Pruitt get is own players in here before judging. I am gonna ride this one out.

    I think the Vols are at least a year away from winning this ball game. Anything can happen, but it's taking too much mental gymnastics to equal winning this year. Too much of a step up. I need to see the Vols handle the Vanderbilts and Missouri's first. Then we'll talk about the Gators. Best case for the Vols this year, ending up 3rd place in SECE, behind #1 UGA and #2 Florida. That would be an accomplishment that I could live with. But they'll have to place 3rd by winning heads up against all other SECE teams. Otherwise our cross division rivalry could be a way for someone to slip by us with one less loss, even if the Vols beat them heads up. Basically, they just need to win. Saturday would be a good time to start, actually get a leg up in SECE standings. Either way the Vols have to continue to improve and stay healthy to close out the season.

    I was probably the last man standing on the JG ship......I have to admit that he is actually getting worse. We obviously are not good and this will not be a quick fix. Like it or not we are re-building.....So I say put a freshman QB in, let him take his lumps and gain experience and we do roll call again next year...........May 2019 season rest in peace!

    Sham welcome to the site. We are small but we are proud. I feel your frustration. Just hang tight though. We are good bunch of people around here and everyone allows different thoughts and no one gets beat up for them here. One of the last bastions of good Vol fans. Rob and Lake dont allow garbage here so enjoy your time. As for your post, I agree it looks really bad. But I think truly Pruitt is the man for the job. I think year two might be a little rough as he gets rid of the Butch Jones leftovers. Year three is the indicator. I do feel though JG is not a QB that Chaney likes. Chaney likes the standard drop back and read a defense kind of QB. Just look at what he has worked with. Drew Brees, Tyler Bray, Jacob Eason, Jake Fromm and the list goes on. I get some like JG and I like his toughness as well but at the end of the day, if he cannot produce and lead this team, no amount of social media campaigns or stupid facebook groups crying about are not going to change the fact while he shows promise, there is a missing "IT" factor with this guy. I hope I am wrong but I just don't see him being the guy. (Watch me post this and now throw for 400 + yards and kill BYU) lol Bottom line is I don't think Pruitt has all his pieces in place yet. I know in this WIN NOW mentality we want results. After the last 10 years, I don't blame you but the difference is we have a real football coach now and not some used car salesmen like Butch Lyle Liar Jones. I am sick of it but I will be patient because for the first time in years I believe in the process.

    All we ended up getting here was clouds and some breeze. No rain at all. Charleston and the low country are another story however. No doubt there's been some damage along the coast.

    I am sure most have heard about the STUPID MORONIC ruling on a self reported violation by Jeremy Pruitt on a tweet congratulating a high school which was his ALMA MATER!!! The NCAA is getting out of control. Look I get making sure coaches aren't trying to push incentives to come to their school through tweets and other social media, but there is the letter of the law and the intent of the law. In this case like many others the NCAA goes overboard. This article was a good write up on it and also even Paul Finebaum said yesterday it was ludicrous. And it is. COME ON NCAA The NCAA is ridiculous, Vol. infinity: Tennessee violations included a Jeremy Pruitt tweet WWW.SPORTINGNEWS.COM The Vols' head football coach shouted out his high school alma mater for winning a championship. Can't do that.

    Grant Williams isn’t the only Tennessee addition made by the Boston Celtics this offseason. ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski reported Thursday afternoon that former Lady Vols star and ESPN commentator Kara Lawson has been hired by the Celtics as an assistant coach. Lawson, who played at Tennessee from 1999-2003, spent 12 years in the WNBA, winning a title in 2005 and earning All-Star honors in 2007 before transitioning to the broadcast booth at ESPN. She helped Team USA win gold in the 2008 Olympic games in Beijing and gold in the World University Games in Beijing in 2001. In the WNBA, Lawson played for the Sacramento Monarchs (2003-09), Connecticut Sun (2010-13) and Washington Mystics (2014-15). With the Celtics, she’ll coach alongside Brad Stevens, Boston’s head coach since 2013, after he was hired away from Butler after a six-year stint with the Bulldogs. Boston selected Williams with the 22nd overall pick in the first round of last week’s NBA Draft, one of three Tennessee selections that had their names called. Admiral Schofield went 42nd overall to the Washington Wizards and Jordan Bone was picked at No. 57 overall, landing with the Detroit Pistons. Tennessee fired Lady Vols head coach Holly Warlick on March 27 and Lawson was a name mentioned by many as a candidate before athletic director Phillip Fulmer ultimately hired Kellie Harper. Lawson isn't alone as a female being hired to coach with an NBA franchise. Nancy Lieberman was hired in 2009 to be the head coach of the Texas Legends, an NBA Developmental League team, the Los Angeles Clippers hired Natalie Nakase as assistant video analyst and Becky Hammon has been successful in her role as assistant coach for the San Antonio Spurs.

    I'm with you on the three year gig. Last year he had to dance with the ones that brung him. This year we should see marked improvements. Next year must be the "Come to Jesus" year for our program. We've waited long enough. I hate CJP must be under the microscope, but he's being well compensated and he knew what he was signing up for when he took the job. As for Chaney, I couldn't be more pleased with his hire. If he can coach the line, the rest will take care of itself. Vandy is and always will be Vandy. That's just a smudge on our record that we'll have to live with. In the words of Poe, "Nevermore".

    My 2 cents for what it's worth: Holly has earned more than enough cred to be given the chance to coach thru the season. And if she is let go, I would expect there are quite a few major conference women's hoops programs that would jump at the chance to hire her.
  21. 1 point
    Well ye Well of course she knew who she was following and what she was getting into but what coach in their right mind if given the chance would've turned down the job? BTW, wasn't Holly the coach Pat wanted to succeed her? Most everyone was at least OK with that at the time. And if she is let go any new coach coming in has to know they will still be compared to Pat in the minds of some fans. So if losing 2 or more consecutive games is a red line for Holly will it also be a red line for whoever comes in next?

    I never played football at the organized level so I'm just spitballing here but it seems to me coaching can only do so much about false starts. It's still on the players to have the self discipline to hold their stance. As for the substitution issues I don't know if it's coaching or the players not being prepared. But I still have nightmares about the last seconds that LSU game in Baton Rouge when Dooley was coach and everyone was running around on the field and the sidelines like a Chinese fire drill. The Vols were doing pretty well in avoiding penalties up until a couple of games ago. I don't want to harp on it but they need to tighten back up. No need to give the other guys that kind of help.

    I think most people capable of critical thinking are aware that the majority of law enforcement officers and officials are motivated by professionalism and dedication to making a positive difference, or at least hope they are. Which makes it even sadder that the rotten apples get the headlines. I don't consider CK a hero or a traitor. More along the lines of the lunch counter protesters or freedom riders of days gone by. They didn't consider themselves heroes, just people who had had enough and had the guts to call attention to a problem that many Americans at the time didn't care about and were quite happy to ignore. Because it didn't affect them personally. It's true injustice and police brutality have and probably always will exist to some extent. But it doesn't mean those who are victims or perceived as potential threats because of their race have to take it without complaint because those guilty of abuse of authority are in the minority. Time will tell if anything positive comes of CK's act but sometimes you have to shake things up to make a real difference. Just ask the people who had their bus burned in Alabama.

    It's not hard to believe that once the shit hit the fan OSU was more concerned about public image & maintaining status quo for the football team. But at the end of the day Smith is a wife-beater, Urbie's a not very convincing liar and OSU is reacting to the whole stinking mess about as expected so no good guys in this story. Just assholes and at least one victim. BTW, as a married guy myself, isn't Urbie's tale about Smith's wife telling the whole sordid story to his wife but his wife never saying a word about it to him laugh out loud ridiculous?
