    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.

    How about a neat trivia fact? The funds were donated to complete TBA by a single donor with one stipulation. It had to seat more fans than Rupp at Kentucky. GO VOLS!

    I will be at the Carolina game rooting on our basketVols! 630 game so should be home by 9. Carolina starting to find their groove so should be a good game. That was impressive how we turned it up that last minute of the Florida game. Sign of a championship team, winning close games on the road. We have so many weapons and differerent guys stepping up when they need to. Been fun to watch so far!

    The best part of it all is the fact that Butchy was denied a NC ring. That was as close as he’ll ever get to one.

    Yeah we were watching and I asked my wife how the heck the Vols beat those guys in their own house. Obviously we have a better defense than Purdue anyway. West Virginia looked like a different team without Grier. A very average team, unfortunately for them. Also watched Duke run away from Temple in the 2nd half Thursday. Congrats to "Old Man" Coach Cutt for another fine season.

    We just got back from a trip to Denver to visit our daughter. She moved there this summer to take a job teaching high school English. Went 13 of the 19 miles up Pikes Peak (the rest was closed) and got to see some snow. Merry Christmas!

    It wasn't too long ago that Vol teams were lacking in size & strength and lost games by being out-rebounded, out-hustled and just plain out-muscled. Those days are gone.

    I live a few blocks from WKU, so at whatever welcoming event I will go and see what kind of autograph/photo I can get...

    Don't think he has any real ties. I think Pruitt will go like he has already and promote from within or someone he is real familiar with. I honestly think he is looking for any reason he can to get Propst on staff so I think there will be some repositioning on the current staff and Propst will be brought in. Most likely scenario is Weinke or Friend get promoted and Propst fills whatever position ends up left or Osovet gets a full time gig and Propst is a quality control guy

    I felt like the bad thing about the Auburn game was they had to face Bama the next week. I was afraid if they got shellacked it might take away some of the momentum from the week before. I don't know for sure if that's what happened but I suspected the loss to Carolina might have been some carry-over. This time they have the opportunity to build on what they accomplished Saturday. Like Pruitt said, it's hard to know what to expect from this team from game to game but they shouldn't lack for motivation.

    Huh..? Enough cannot be said about Alabama being a great college football team. But a bunch of 20-21 year old kids beating a team full of 6-8 year NFL veterans? You're talking boys against men. I have to disagree.

    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.

    Since the official pickems are (hopefully) delayed for a week or two and if Rob doesn't mind, here are 10 games I came up with this week if you want a warmup week. There are a lot of cupcake games and mismatches so not a lot that require the old crystal ball but here's my guesses. Tennessee over West Virginia Northwestern over Purdue (tonight) Stanford over San Diego St. Oklahoma over Florida Atlantic Washington over Auburn Michigan over Notre Dame Middle Tennessee over Vanderbilt Miami over LSU Alabama over Louisville Florida State over Virginia Tech
