UF will pound our eyes in, but they would have regardless of any comments by our coach.

SO you get rid of a coach who had class and pretty moderate success but was having a rough patch for a guy who trash talks other coaches and breaks the rules.

Oh and the real UT is in Texas
If you think he's "getting into trouble," you probably consider a child being grounded to his or her room to be the death penaltiy.

Please continue, I enjoy a good laugh.

If one championship in 10 years is your definition of "moderate success", you must be a closet A&M fan.

I would say 152-52 is pretty good success. Good luck winning championships against Florida and in the SEC. I guess you Vol fans have the Notre Dame condition where you think your better than you are. Good luck this year maybe you'll make it to a bowl game

Go take a ride in a DeLorean and ask Mack Brown how much one's record is worth without championships. Here's a hint, somewhere between dirt and GM stock.

The standards at UT are at least 2 championships every 10 or so years. Fulmer couldn't get it done, so he was canned. If you don't like our standards, well, I don't really care.

Those are high standards considering the Vols have only won 2 championships in their existence (excluding all the million smaller polls in the past that do not matter).

Should be interesting to see what your new coach can do. He has a tough task as your offense was terrible last year and will be only slightly better with your 2 new running backs. How does the line look? Sadly, both your qbs are garbage.

I'm looking forward to visiting Knoxville next year to watch the Oregon-Tennessee game. It should be fun.

I was referring to conference championships. NCs are really just a cherry on top that you can only wish for, especially when considering the system used to determine the champion.

The OLine showed a much improved run blocking technique at our spring game, but the QB only took 2-3 step drops, so there's really no telling about the pass protection.

I expect only one of the two big RB (Brown, Oku) recruits to play this year, and the other sould wear a redshirt. Oku may not even make it in school.

Yes, the QBs are bad, err, horrible, err, God awful.

With better play calling, we're bowl eligible last year. That gives me enough hope, even with crappy QBs. Look for a lot of running.

Alabama got screwed. This is why people like the NFL, because a win is a win and a loss is a loss. There aren't stupid nitpicky rules that USC doesn't get hit with but the rest of the schools do.
