  1. I agree with a lot of what every one has said so far, one of the reasons I don't post much. I just don't see the need to repeat what has already been said. However, I'm really tired of a bad call costing a team a game it's something I'm seeing way to much these days.

    Jim Chaney coming back to Knoxville

    I'd really like to see that! I wish him well wherever he decides to go.

    Jim Chaney coming back to Knoxville

    Count me in as really liking this hire. Welcome back CJC! I read that about the possibility of Tee joining the staff. I read somewhere else, don't remember where that he was also in the running for the Miami OC job.
  4. Nice, Thanks for the updates I really like the O line help.

    Interesting Jalen Hurd article.

    Wow just wow, that explains a lot. Changed my opinion about Hurd.

    Very Telling......

    I'd say that pretty much sums it up.
  7. I just want to see a clean game on both sides of the ball.

    Is JG the guy?

    Don't have a problem with opening things up. Not to sure CK However, I don't think JG is entirely at fault here I also think the OL and the offensive staff should share in this as well. I do think that JG has improved quite a bit this season. The thing I've noticed most ,and this is just my take, it looks like the game hasn't slowed down for him yet. I don't know if it will happen for him if it ever does.

    I see what you have to say and you have the right to say so! I have defended that right! And will continue to do so! However, Kapernick is painting with a really broadbrush when it comes to police brutality! As does most of the media on this issue! I'll grant the fact that there are some bad cops out there. That said the MAJORITY are folks that are just doing a really dirty job and really deserve our support! As far as athletes that were vilified in the 60's take a long hard look at John Carlos and Tommie Smith. I'll give you a hint , Mexico City 1968. Granted Ali took his fair share of crap and I'll concede that point. In so far as Serena Williams is concerned I don't much care.I do admire what she and Venus have done with their lives. They have worked hard to do so. As far as Nike goes I could care less what Phill Knight does I haven't bought or worn Nike in a really long time. If you are dying to know I'd say 20 plus years at this point I equate it to Levis and their stupid support for gun control! Sorry son, at this point I can't say much good for Nike or any of the others that support ONLY social justice without seeing BOTH sides!
  11. Easy is a complete understatement. Didn't Jim Trestle get fired for something less!
  12. Thing is right now we are 3 and 0. However, several things are bothering me right now. The first thing is the offensive line. IMO this is the biggest problem. We cannot get the run game going or allow Dobbs time to throw without this. Second, I am seeing improvement with the defensive line. However the defensive backfield needs work. Okay, there have been injuries. However the backups need to step up! Third, Dobbs needs to work on his accuracy. He has been inconsistent to put it politely. At this point I would say let him play his game I only really saw that in the VT game. Forth , get Malone and Croom more involved, I realize that bad O Line play is part of the problem here. But Malone has been the bright spot at receiver so far get him more involved! Lastly I'll reiterate I'm one of those coaches make the game plan but it is up to the players on the field to get the job done. I can't tell you how many time I have heard" I can't play for you" . At this point IMO both coaches and players need to step up!
  13. Thanks, I'll say again right now I think the biggest issue is quarterback play. That said, I honestly think it can be turned around.
  14. Ok my take a couple of days after the game. In the first half we were outplayed!!!!!! We are forgetting App State is a good football team and they came in ready to play and with a decent plan that they were able to execute. Do I chalk this up to first game jitters, believing the preseason hype or just poor play. So here are my thoughts on it: 1. I am of the opinion that the defense kept us in the game. Not sure if they fully grasp all of the defensive concepts yet. 2. I know a lot of you will say out coached. Sorry, I don't buy into that. Yes, the coaches make the game plan and make adjustments during the game but it is up to the players to execute said plan. 3. The thing that bothers me the most right now is the offensive line play. Okay,I know there are some injuries and guys playing out of position. I understand that. Do I think these issues will be resolved, yes I do. I think this was the cause of a lot of the running game problems. 4. Quarterback play also bothers me at this point. Simply put, Dobbs didn't play that well something else I feel can be corrected. 5. Thursday in the shout box I said something about the officials. Here it is , the targeting call could have gone either way, the play that was reversed after a play had been run was wrong! The dropped touchdown call , that was pretty much correct. These are just some things I'll touch on right now I feel a lot of this is correctable and judging by some of the scores this Saturday I am pretty sure that will happen.
