Just got in from the game..WOW!!

46 years old and 36 of them watching and loving Tennessee Football. That was EASILY the worst I've seen.
Can't run, pass, catch or kick very well. Can't intercept and return, can't catch and run away for a score and most bothersome to me, can't tackle.
I am not sure what the specific problem or problems are but I am sure that there are plenty of them. After attending approx. 60 games in 30 years, that was the hardest to sit thru ever.
Just watch CDD show and for the first time kinda felt numb and unresponsive ( kinda like our team ). I am a true fan and do not want to slam anyone or anything in particular. I just wonder if there is anyone who thinks that we are miles and maybe years away from a 8-10 win season. Hope we start to improve and I'll be chearing on Saturdays for years to come..

Boy, that was hard to watch.....

I actually think we are there next year if we stay healthy. However, if we see mistakes next year that shouldn't be happening with our best on the field, then I will start to worry. So, no, fortunately we aren't years away; it's just been a long year with really no breaks going our way. When Gordon dropped that pick 6 I just thought "Well, there you go."

You sir are a fan's fan. You drove from Nashville to Fayetteville to see this edition of the Vols? You are a better man than myself. I used to do that type of trip in the 90's but would not this year. Bravo to you.

I agree. That was one of those games where I just kept thinking of the bamboo metaphor. Watching the first half thinking "I see all these signs of getting a lot better, but the score doesn't show any of them. One day, we're just gonna up and blow somebody out and nobody will know where it came from."

At 3-1 I was very optimistic even with some sloppy play. After the last 4 weeks its seems to be obvious that we are miles away. I hope you are right. Maybe some of your optimism will rub of on me, LOL...GBO

Can't take all that praise. We have family in Arky and usually catch that game...But we do travel as much as we can...GBO

You and I are from the same genre. I began watching UT football in 1977, and the differences I draw from those teams of the late 70's - 80's and now are stark:

1) The fundamentals: Tackling, Blocking, and Kicking Game aren't there That's a matter of coaching, not talent. Palardy vs. Fuad Reveiz? The Colquitts punters vs. Matt Darr? C'mon Man...The kicking game is the 'equalizer' between teams, and we don't even have THAT weapon these days.

2) The Jimmy Streater QB'd teams of 1977-79 were bad, but EXCITING to watch. The 80's featured Willie Gault, Mike Miller, and Tim McGee ... great talent with explosive downfield ability. We have none of that.

3) Intensity. Where is our intensity on the football field? I don't see players getting after people anymore. I don't see seniors leading.

It was the worst loss by UT since a 1981 loss to Georgia.

You mean the beat down of a highly over rated big east team?...I saw it...And laughed...Cincy is not that good of a team....Keep convincing yourself they are if it makes you feel better.
