  1. Fitting name if Peyton is going to have a restaurant there. The Volunteer Hotel - formerly Hilton Garden Inn Knoxville/University - Hotel 1706 Cumberland Ave Knoxville, TN 37916 Downtown hotel with a Southern-style restaurant featuring locally grown produce & a casual bar.
  2. I looked it up on google earth and it is behind Krystal...or what used to be Krystal. What the heck, its a cell phone store now. When did that happen? Guess I have been gone too long.

    I like to think of it as Smokey killing other team's championship dreams! or at least their winning streaks over the Vols.

    Goodness will Penny just quit crying?

    Penny was a great player with the Magic back when I watched the NBA. Always seemed a little weird though. Not sure if he had Shaq envy or he was just mad that everyone knew we should have taken Weber over him in the draft.

    Holiday plans?

    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!

    College Playoff thoughts

    I still say UCF should have got in. You have got to play your conference schedule and right now the power conferences are not letting anyone in. Don't know why, Orlando is a big TV market and last I heard UCF is the second largest college in the US. Their non conference did include a couple of gimmes, FAU and SCSU, but they did schedule UNC and Pitt. They beat Pitt (ACC division champ) by a LOT more than Notre Dame did. Heck, Clemson only beat Pitt by 1 more point than UCF did. The hurricane took out the UNC game. And Cincy was ranked when they played and finished 10-2. Just my 2 cents.

    That was their closest game this year, a 31-30 comeback win.

    The committee will use th fact that Milton (QB) is out as an excuse to keep them out. Not that they were letting them in anyways, just now they have an excuse.

    I wonder how many games in a row UCF has to win ? They beat Pitt and a ranked Cincinnati. Not their fault the hurricane canceled the NC game. The rest are conference games that they had to play/ I know,not exactly murderers row but its hard to get into a power 5 conference and a lot of the big teams do not want to play them. Are they the best team? Probably not but they should at least get a chance to prove it.
  25. Looks great Rob! I had to manually change mine but that was easy too.
