Hmmm... Elephants paying homage to team 121.

Could be an omen.

Out of appearant neccesity and in order to minimize the confusion, all of my postings are simply my opinion based upon nothing more than my own observation and habitual blabbyness. For the record I make no claim of being an expert, and have no "insider" status regarding Tennessee sports programs, their players, coach's, opponents, or anything that could be mistaken as remotely associated with them.

The trash can and orange dog has got to be 2 of the biggest blunders in Volunteer history! I really am confused how coaches think these are good motivational decisions. I wonder if I walk around with a trash can tomorrow, if people will be motivated to clean up their own shit after themselves.  :shakehead:

Well, the big deal about the trashcan thing is getting to celebrate the turnover by slamdunking the ball on the sideline.

TxA&M is doing it too, so somebody obviously likes it...

Sumlin and Jones? :laughing1:

 

Both are praying nightly that they are employed the next morning.

I respectfully disagree that we're the butt of all jokes, especially in the SEC. You got Missouri getting their butts handed to them by teams no one has heard of. Arkansas looks to be a laughing stock, Ole' Miss is falling from the sky, and Texas A&M will have a new coach before the season's over.

 

I think CBJ can pull this out. Not making excuses. I don't think he's our guy for trophies but I think he can still salvage the season. (minus Bama)

Fair statement.

Still the butt of jokes is all the champions of life comments and 5 star hearts and all DAT:-)

When ESPN goes on NFL countdown and pretty much calls out a college game and says "what are you doing?"

That's being called out. You mentioned Missouri. That's the only team in the East right now, I call a win.

Kentucky and Vandy have real games this weekend. Don't be surprised if that goes 1-1. If Tennessee had to play either of those teams this weekend at their home, I'm not sure the Vols win either one.

Still, much time and development can happen. I'm interested to see how the Vols play this Saturday. This should be a "fundamentals" game and constant repetition to work out the issues.

Goodness, there's enough if them.

I give as much credit to anything coming from ESPN or the NFL as I do Chris Matthews and MSNBC...........zero.
