    If they cancel 2020 season

    I wonder whether most force majeure clauses cover COVID-19. From the articles that I have read, courts will tend to interpret them narrowly. The Coronavirus and Force Majeure Clauses in Contracts I agree that no school would want to try to enforce a force majeure clause against a coach.

    Oklahoma is beatable next season

    If Kansas State can beat them this year. Vols can beat them next year. It would mess them up significantly if Lincoln leaves unless they have an Assistant Coach that they can promote. Presumably not Grinch.

    We lost one of our own

    O merciful Father, look with pity on the sorrows of Larry's family. Remember them, O Lord, in mercy; nourish their souls; comfort them ; lift up your countenance upon them; and give them peace; through Jesus Christ our Lord. ‚ÄČAmen.

    Zero proof that Vandy, USC, or UK

    At this point, I'm not expecting any wins in toss-up games. Sure, it could happen. After all, I could turn into a lion instead of just a cat. I look at it this way - The team has not shown an ability to win a close game for years. The other teams now have a history of...

    Mood of Vol Nation

    I think that most of us have lived long enough and seen enough of other peoples; lives to know that getting too upset about things that we cannot control and that do not really directly affect our lives is a recipe for a coronary, stroke, etc.

    Its ok to admit it

    I will watch our games but will expect to lose. I won't be as disappointed when the expected happens. I will also watch other games. They are still entertainment. I do actually also care about the service academies and would like for them to do well.

    Remember when some of us wanted Les Miles?

    I guess with Les we would have success and not a mess. Yes, I confess that we could regress against the best of the rest.

    Path to a bowl game

    It is possible but very unlikely. I would expect 3 - 9. At this point, any more wins is gravy. We would have to improve much faster than several of our conference opponents. The opponents have good enough coaches to keep that from happening. We are starting a 1,000 yard race and the other...

    Why I don't think it matters if UT fires Pruitt
