    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.

    Don't usually read this stuff but this was funny. A little hyperbole and tongue and check but in thinking back over the last 10 years of Tennessee football it is kind of sad but true What if Tennessee had hired Greg Schiano? A whimsical look at a disaster avoided WWW.SATURDAYDOWNSOUTH.COM Oh, what could have been.

    Don't usually follow Twitter much but this is one of the best ones I've seen. Yes Pruitt is tough. Not unfairly tough just tough. Players know the difference and this edge and toughness has been sorely missed.

    FWIW the Vols get some love from ESPN in their new power rankings.

    I've been holding out. I thought that if we were patient a little longer that the lights would finally come on, and Jarrett would make everybody glad he was a Vol. To start the 2nd half the Vols defense held Alabama to a 3 and out opening possession, and handed JG the perfect oppertunity to redeem himself in the eyes of the Vol faithful. Tennessee only scored a field goal on the ensuing possession, but I was alright with that. We stopped Bama, and even scored points of our own in the first 5 minutes of the second half. The defense took some deep breaths on the sideline, and were ready to come out and stop Bama again. Their young QB showed no signs of being ready to fill Tua's absence. That guy wasn't going to win the game for Alabama by throwing the ball. After Tua went out, Bama's offense was forced to be one dimensional for the rest of the game. All he was going to do was hand the ball to somebody else, and hopefully grind out the game on the ground. All we had to do was stack the defense to stop the run, and play coverage on passing downs. We had already seen that the offense could play ball against Alabama's defense. They were actually giving Bama problems defending a balanced offense. Jordan was warming up, and the O-line was blocking for him. Callaway and Palmer were on the verge of breaking the game wide open, while Bama was focused on covering Jennings. We were poised. It was lining up. Winning might have been too much to hope for, but certainly not out of the question. But by all appearances the Vols were fixing to give Bama a black eye. Alabama was not in control, and Tennessee was gaining momentum. Until... Yeah... Guarantano sucks. No doubt a fine young man, has already graduated and all that. I'm sure his family is proud. Tough guy, whatever. But his ass needs to be so permantly superglued to the bench that he has to drag it to class with him. As a QB, he can't do anything right. Can't even be trusted to run the play that was called from the bench. Hell fire, there's absolutely no reason why now. If our QB can only screw up the game, we might as well have the excuse of them being an inexperienced underclassman. I'm done. I'm gave out. Unless something changes (it won't) the next time I see JG playing ball in a UT uni I'll turn off the TV and go mow the yard. Wash my car, do the dishes or something. I can't do this to myself anymore. (EOR... maybe)

    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.

    From Facebook Not sure how many of you know the story of this tower. It is in Mosul, Iraq on one of Saddams sons former compounds. a Cpt from the 101st was tasked with getting it painted...so he did. Whenever I needed a lift I would fly by this on the way in or out of the airfield. So for those who think being a Volunteer is simply about wins or losses, consider what went into painting this tower and what it meant to those of us who had a chance to see it in person. "I will give my all for Tennessee today" is more than just a slogan and I thank God every day I'm still around to take my kids to see Tennessee play. (feel free to return to complaining)..Scott Pope

    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.

    Here is what I do. I go 3 wide (Palmer, Jennings, Callaway) DWA at TE, Gray or Chandler in the backfield and Maurer at QB and I let it ride. If it is not open I tell Maurer to get a few yards with his legs and we line up and do it again. Other than a few teams remaining I do not think anyone can handle our skill positions if we spread it out and just let them play. I know simple sometimes looks hard to these guys but I definitely think this is our best option for the rest of the year.

    It's not often that a local recruit gets much Columbia media coverage if he's not going to the Cocks or Clemson but Hyatt & his choice got some attention on TV & in the paper the other day. Dutch Fork is a powerhouse not only in state but nationally.

    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.

Thanks to all of our Veterans.
