    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're staying home for the holidays although we may venture into town next weekend for the Clemson/South Carolina game at Colonial Life. We went back to Georgia for Thanksgiving and visited my son & his mom but that's enough holiday travelling for me. I'm nosy. What are the rest of you VolTalkers planning (or not planning)?

    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.

    Congrats to Montario for getting a full time gig. Looks like he will coach the RBs for Helton

    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

    After that performance, I feel ALOT better about the direction of the program. We’re already ahead of the curve on the win/loss ratio compared to last year. And we still have 2 (hopefully 3) games to go. Plus, we’ve beaten 2 SEC teams both of which were in the top 25. I was downright giddy watching our boys fly all over the field.

    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.

    Maybe if he coaches them like they are Alabama they’ll win like they are Alabama.

    Now if Raynoch had been wearing that shirt in his mug shot, that would have been awesome!

    If someone wants to call running the ball on first and second down, and passing on third down predictable, then %99 of all NCAA and NFL football teams are predictable.

    I watched a little of their game with Mizzou. From what I saw I was impressed with how the Tigers OL went toe-to-toe with them on the line, did a decent job of blocking, showed good teamwork and opened some holes. If the Vols could get that kind of effort out of their line I'd give them a chance to keep it close but from the keystone kops show they put on against the gators I'm not expecting it. I'm with you Rob, I don't expect miracles this year but at some point it would be nice to see some progress to at least give us hope that things will get turned around eventually. But not this week. Kirby can probably name his score.

    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.

    Yeah, that's good stuff. CPF (he'll always be coach to me) has always, at least tried to do what was in UT's best intrest. I sincerely believe that. I don't think that has changed. In short, I trust the man. It's been a rough 10 years or so since CPF was fired, but I can smell the wind of change. If nothing else, I believe he's on a mission to set a lot of things right.

    Mr. Optimism here. We win the first 4, then lose the next 3, then win out. Go ahead and laugh, I will re-post this after week 4, unless we go 2-2, then I will hope you all forget about my prediction.

    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?

    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.
