We need to be relevant again and not keep living in the past. Recruit, recruit, recruit, develop players, develop players and win, win, win.

How stupid would it look if Kansas City kept celebrating their 1967 Super Bowl championship against Minnesota, even 20 years later?

"WE"? We didn't win anything. The players on the 1998 University of Tennessee football team won the National Championship. The University is right to celebrate these players and their accomplishments for our University. They won it!

One my top 5 all-time favorite Vols! Stalked his Twitter some. Looks like Peerless is a dedicated family man, girls BB coach, and husband, who handled his vast wealth well. Most importantly of course, still a huge VFL!



Besides having a unique #37 WR number (the same as my childhood fav Conrad Graham), he has three of my favorite/memorable plays all time:

#3 Of course, the long TD (and huge game) in the natty vs FSU. The ONLY 3rd down (3rd&10 btw) converted by UT against that ridiculous FSU defense all night.

#2 The 100 yd kick return vs Bama. Being there with a Bama friend who got us tix topped it off. Alexander ran that long TD on us right before and mo had shifted thier way big. Neyland got a little nervous. Then Price takes it all the way to the house! But, wait. Flags on the play. :-( The whole place (we were in 'X' iirc) went flat and my friend stood up and started cheering the flag and laughing at me. Then it was called on Bammer and the place went nuts. We routed em' to finish the game.

#1 The long WR screen TD vs Vandy 98'. Most may not remember this. And it is not as epic in importance. But, Peerless took a WR screen (I think) from Martin, broke tackle, turned up field with about a 10yd cushion for the safety coming up to tackle. Peerless, instead of making a move on him, pointed behind him as if he was setting up a blocker. Nobody was back there. When the DB took a glance to make sure, Price instantly cut it inside on him and took it about 60 yards to the house untouched. Mind blown.

Great memories.

You realize most people on this Earth don't have tattoos, right? That's a pretty myopic way of looking at things.

Technically speaking, people with tattoos would be the ones "who think for themselves and don't follow what the rest of the sheep are doing..."

Not in professional sports. Watch any NBA game, most players look like a walking advertisement for the show ďInkedĒ

The truth. Huge TD against Miss St. in the SECCG. Always played big in big games his whole career. TD in the SECCG against Auburn in 1997. I guarantee he scored in at least 3 bowl games, maybe all 4, because he balled his freshman year, too.

Edit: Peerless did not score in the Citrus Bowl as a freshman against OSU. But, he did have a TD catch in the next 3 bowl games against Northwestern, Nebraska and of course, FSU

Great memories.
When I was checking his bowl stats, I noticed Peerless was at least, a 2-time member of the SEC all-academic team. Probably and apparently multiplied his money. Peerless played some school, too

I get what youíre saying. I have a tattoo on my arm to remind me how precious life is and how important what you do and say influences people and how much I love God....

I got because I had a gun pointed to my face from about 3 feet away and the random man pulled the trigger and........

The gun jammed.... Jesus music started playing in the background in a car with the car was off... and the keys out of the car... crazy stuff.

But Iím sure some have tattoos for different reasons.. and Iím also sure youíre right it is a trend for sure.
