Once every 5 years is quite reasonable and should be expected. Whether its 9 or 10 years, it has been too damn long.

Find a better argument for defending Fulmer.

Splitting hairs between 9 or 10 years since an SECC is even a new low for the Fulmerites...

I am glad to see a dedicated thread for this subject again although it may be awhile before there is any new, worthwhile information to post about the hfc.

This whole thing has me confused. UTK last won the SEC in 1998. If I understand correctly, mba is arguing that we have to count from the day that Bama won the SEC c-ship game in 1999, so it's more like you count championships in periods of one year rather than just going by the year in which you win the game? At any rate, Bama was the 1999 SEC champion. UTK last won it in 1998. This is how many SEC championship games have been played since UTK last won it in 1998:

99 -1
00 -2
01 -3
02 -4
03 -5
04 -6
05 -7
06 -8
07 -9

He's already got one for this season, but they could go ahead and start the paperwork for next year.

You are a bit slow aren't you? When Bama won in 1999, it had been 1 year since UT had won the SEC (1998).

Imagine you had a son or daughter born the day UT won the SEC championship. How old would that child be today?

Alternatively, for partial credit: How many years has it been since UT won the SEC championship in basketball? When will a year have elapsed?

Geez, if somebody said the Spanish American War was 100 years ago, would you correct them and say it was actually 110 years ago? LOL!!! Splitting hairs over 9 years versus 10...

CPF last won it in 1998.

He's been in 2001, 2004 and 2007. He's been every third year. That's fine. Any fans at any SEC school will take going to the SECCG every three years.

Losing every third SECCG since 1998 is the problem. Tennessee has essentially become the bridesmaid. CPF has had chances to silence his critics. He's failed so far.

It was the 1998 season. The 2008 season wold be 10 years removed. The Vols haven't played that yet.

I've admitted the bridesmaid problem already, but you and I both know a bridesmaid that looks as good as UT did against LSU last year, can get a great deal of attention.

justin, since 1998 UTK has been the Arkansas of the East. Each team has represented their division in the SECCG three times and neither has won it. Might as well put Smokey in a pig suit.
