    Vols, and the Rankings.

    True but if both are 10-2 then head to head should come into play. It really comes down to the selection committee but they will probably take into account that we are a different team without Hooker. I was really hoping Milton would put up some good numbers.
  2. Whr you vote next Tuesday remember what big government tried to do to us. The mayor of Daytona Beach tried to fine people for not wearing a mask. Fortunately the governor made those fince null and void. Here is an old excerpt from a former member. Well he probably deserved it because I know he voted to put them in charge. Travel papers! The guv has issued a stay-at-home order for the state that just went into effect this evening. My wife got an email from her office to carry with her saying she had a need to travel for an essential job. A delivery driver I know said he's got a permission slip too. Driving anywhere in the state without a good reason is now a misdemeanor.
  3. Hooker made watching Tennessee football fun again. I hope he has a speedy recovery and does well in the NFL.

    Vandy beats Florida

    After yesterday let's hope they can't make it 3.
  5. So they can eject a player for "targeting" when the D is about to tackle the O and the O lowers his helmet but this "didn't mean that" is just a 15 yard penalty?
  6. Looks like Jimbo is also decommitting from A&M. I think the transfer portal will be full of A&M players this off season and they have some good players to poach.
  7. Good, I just can't get nuthin done with a noon game.

    Chins up. Vols control their destiny.

    I think TCU, Oregon, and one of the 2 Big 10 schools ahead of us all have a loss coming. Barring a melt down we will be in at #3 and only rematch Georgia in the championship game.

    Utah and Oregon state after that. Both ranked.

    Chins up. Vols control their destiny.

    Going to need to run up the score on the next 3 games. Oregon is just a few points behind us, even though they gave GA much less of a game than we did.The bias may be in to put w western team in and avoid a 2 SEC team playoff.

    CBS Bowl Projections

    I think like last year they will make some adjustments to make sure there is not a rematch until the championship game. So I would expect for Tennessee to be 3 and TCU 4. But Texas is taking down TCU this weekend.
  12. So we had a bad game. Hooker probably lost the Heistman. We could still make the playoffs, just need a little help now. Somebody needs to beat bammer and GA needs to go undefeated and win the SECCG. Bammer beats GA and they both get in and UT is in the Sugar Bowl. OSU/Michigan, 1 will lose. TCU is not that good but will get in if undefeated so we need them to lose. Clemson has a loss coming, they have QB problems.

    Tennessee Georgia game

    I was watching those games. As I see it now, top 4: 1. Georgia 2. OSU/MI winner 3. TCU 4. Tennessee or Oregon. Both lost to GA but ours was not as bad. Lots of football still to play though.
  14. Y'all remember those 1 way signs in the grocery store? I always ignored them and only got some mean looks. How about the canceled graduations for the class of 2020? Now the teacher's union wants "covid amnesty" to forgive everyone for all the stupid things they did while all the people with a brain knew they were overstepping all the time. Governor Ron don't need no amnesty because he made the right decisions.

    Vols are #1

    In the playoff rankings. Doesn't matter too much. Beat GA this weekend and we would be #1 anyways. But nice to be ranked at the top again. Tennessee, Ohio State, Georgia, Clemson top first CFP rankings WWW.ESPN.COM With defending national champion Georgia on deck this weekend in an SEC East clash, Tennessee topped the first release of the College Football Playoff rankings on Tuesday night, joined by Ohio State, the Bulldogs and Clemson in the top four.

  16. This was all from 2020. The former member was from another state. Florida was good.

    What ifs???

    You should sell this speech to Josh for his game day pep talk.

    What ifs???

    Some parallels here, like the Pitt game. Early season game that was a close one, just like Syracuse in 98. After we beat GA I think SC could be out Arkansas moment. Or we could beat them by fiddy.

    Vol Bike

    I was riding the dragon US-129 yesterday before the game and saw this bike.

    Vol Bike

    BMW S1000RR. I was going to turn around and chase him down but my 39 year old bike may have trouble keeping up.
  21. Tennessee jumps OSU in the polls so we get a true 1 vs 2 matchup.

    Dark Mode for Kentucky game

    More product to sell which, I believe, puts more NIL money in players pockets. At least I think they get a cut if a jersey is sold with their name on it. I am old school and think a paid college education should be enough but the game has changed and we must offer comparable payouts as other schools. You can only fit so much $ in a McDonalds bag. I do like the new black uni's. Much better than the ones at the 2009 Halloween game when the jerseys came in but not the helmets so they had the normal white helmets and black jerseys. Just did not look right.
  23. I see another shootout but a double digit Vols win. Their QB was out in their 2 losses and he is pretty good. But to quote their OC " We won't be scoring 50 points."
  24. Good game. Starters got some work in and rested in the second half. No serious injuries. Back ups got some PT, they need work. Squirrel looked good.Still not sold on Milton.

    Vols get another commitment

    Awesome, we need some DBs.
