    Why all-in on Pruitt now???

    Our NCAA football discussion group met last night at the Oak Ridge Applebee's. I had mentioned it and invited everyone to attend a little earlier in the thread, so I thought I'd share the highlights from last night. We had 3 other couples in attendance. One from Adamsville, one from Oak Ridge...

    Why all-in on Pruitt now???

    Maybe the game would have been closer (less than double digits) at the end had there been no fumble recovery and score by Alabama on the 4th and goal play. I could have felt good about single digit loss. Alas' we will never know. I don't feel like the right play was called. I'll tell you...

    Why all-in on Pruitt now???

    Great scott........ you have to be kidding with that logic. Maurer was injured, but SO WAS TUA. And one thing I have learned in my sporting life, it doesn't matter if it's cricket, soccer, or NCAA football, when it is a rivalry game, you can throw the records out the window. It is going to be...

    Why all-in on Pruitt now???

    Granted, I haven't lived in the states long enough to see the Vols during their best years under Fulmer. However, Mississippi St. is one of the worst teams in the SEC. And Alabama was playing very conservative with their backup QB. I was hoping for a Tennessee win for sure, but you have to...

    Why all-in on Pruitt now???

    I don't understand all the optimism you blokes have now. All of the sudden, Pruitt is definitely the right coach. The Vols are 2-5 this year with losses to BYU and Georgia St. Now coming off a blowout loss to an Alabama team without Tua for most of the game, the Vols have turned the corner...

    Just bring Butch back

    Not suggesting a re-hire mind you. Just wondering how many of you would go back in time and never fire him, seeing as you have Pruitt now. Maybe Pruitt could be transferred to Professor of English and not receive a buyout.

    Sherrer/Rumph Blitz Packages

    I wish we could discuss this in the Football forum so we could get several opinions on the subject. My wife and I will try to take a look at that this weekend. Busy weekend though, as we are in an online Pokemon tournament beginning in the morning.

    NSD Celebrations

    My wife and I plan to be at the Applebee's in Oak Ridge to celebrate the Vols signing class tonight. Would love for some of you guys to come down and join us. Hoping to begin a new NCAA football couple's discussion group around here. As my wife was grinding homemade sausage this morning, we...

    Sherrer/Rumph Blitz Packages

    Do any of you guys that have closely followed the Vols defense know anything about their blitz packages? My wife and I were talking this morning, and from the tape we have studied, we don't believe the Vols blitzed enough to put pressure on opposing quarterbacks. We came to this epiphany last...

    Culture changing in football program

    Anytime you have a new coach, one has to wonder if a huge culture change will take place in the program. Some of you guys with more insight into the program may know how Coach Pruitt is trying to instill a different culture. Are there poor attitudes in the program? Should we expect several...

    Strength/Conditioning Coach?

    I'm interested in knowing a little bit more about S&C coach Craig Fitzgerald. My wife and I finished our study of blocking schemes this weekend. We studied the Vols combo blocking schemes. It was really hard to imitate with only the 2 of us, but we double teamed our St. Bernard, Bielema, just...

    Vols Line Play?

    Yes sir, I've been to Hull many times. Little over an hour by car. I miss the old country. Haven't been back in years. And yes Vol445, I have seen that Andy Griffith episode. Most everyone from Heckmondwike has. Neat thing to have your hometown mentioned in TV or movie. Especially a place...

    Vols Line Play?

    We originally hail from charming little place called Heckmondwike. Have you ever been there? Thanks Pride85 for the informative post. It does sound to me like we might need a better strength and conditioning protocol as well as focusing on recruiting bigger, stronger lineman. If I get a...

    Vols Line Play?

    Hello, I recently moved to the Knoxville area from NW Arkansas after living there for about 3 years. We are transplanted Brits and we became fans of the Arkansas Razorbacks and big fans of NCAA football. We had a thriving couples NCAA football discussion group that met monthly at Applebees...
