    Has anyone heard of this story?

    I’d take Urban in a heartbeat. He’ shown the touch at 3 different schools. And I’m really really tired of losing.

    The Worst is Yet to Come (long)

    I probably should have excluded that comment because yes, Chaney for one certainly knows the SEC. But frankly, I couldn't see much difference between his play-calling in the Ga. St. game and what we saw last year with Helton. The Tennessee O is, for lack of a better word, boring.

    The Worst is Yet to Come (long)

    When Tennessee suffers a humiliating loss like the one last Saturday, the response here on VN is predictable – first, hysteria; then come the sunshine pumpers. They offer up 35 different and imaginative excuses to explain how, despite the Ga. St. debacle, Pruitt is still the man who will make...

    Just keeping it vanilla for the SEC title run.

    I've read this "keeping it vanilla" b.s. for years now and I'm sick of it. I suppose the O.P. was just being sarcastic. We weren't keeping it vanilla today. We just had a coach that didn't give a damn and a team that didn't give a damn. If Butch Jones set back the UT program, then Pruitt...

    The Official Tennessee vs. Georgia State Game Thread, 3:30 PM ET, ESPNU

    Looking worse than last year’s team. Three and out for Pruitt?

    '20 AR QB Jacolby Criswell

    Unless & until we get a better OL, it seems our QBs will have to run for their life on every play. So why not have a QB who can do so?

    The Official #1 Tennessee vs. West Virginia Game Thread, 4:00 PM ET, ESPN

    Been checking the score on my iPhone. Did Coach Barnes let Holly Warlick coach the 1st 10 minutes of the game? Just wondering.

    Do our players know???

    Kinda like something being not quite right with the Titanic after it met the iceberg??

    So, about that OC position.... (Merged)

    I’ve kept a tally of those rumored to be UT’s next OC and so far the only names not mentioned are Nick Saban and the late Pat Summit. Any others?

    Is this a signature win?

    Defense wins games - who would have thought!

    Pruitt talks offensive struggles

    I’m seeing the same pattern here on VN as I saw with Dooley & Jones. First year: “It’s the players’ fault! We’ll be great once we get better players.” Third year: “It’s the coaches’ fault! We’ll be great once we get better coaches!”

    This is sad

    That is on the coaches - it's part of their job to get players excited about playing UT football. This might rank as one of the worst wins in the history of Tennessee football. Don't know what tickets for this game cost, but the coaches, players, and AD own the fans a sincerely apology.

    We deserved to lose (Facts inside)

    One pattern you invariably see when a team is rebuilding, with a new coaching staff, is this: they win games few expected them to win, and then lose games the coulda, woulda, shoulda won. In 1964, Doug Dickey's 1st year as HC, the Vols were 4-2-1 after beating favored Georgia Tech, #7 in the...
