Bye-bye Dooley?

With Wilcox and Sirmon gone, is Dooley next? Clay Travis thinks so and lists his Top 10 candidates. He is wrong about #3 in his list:

3. Peyton Manning
I would publicly offer the head coaching job to Peyton Manning in the event he doesn't want to take the health risk of returning to the NFL.
In fact, I'd even put Manning at the top of this list if it was my call.
Give him the offense and persuade John Chavis to come back and take over the defense under another Tennessee grad head coach.
Are you telling me that Manning wouldn't have the top quarterbacks in the country every year? Can you imagine what a home visit from Peyton Manning would be like?
This is every Tennessee fan's secret dream, that one day Peyton Manning will return to Knoxville and take back over the Vol football program. His injury may have just accelerated the timetable.
He is wrong about this being a secret dream. We say it loud and proud.

How Far We Have Fallen

This year we had the Orange Dog and a lose to Kentucky. No swagger in that. We had some swagger once upon a time.

Sports Quote of the Day

Courtesy of Beano on the Tony Basilio show as they discussed a rematch of Bama and LSU:

Tauren Poole

wesrucker247 TPoole: "It's not happened like I thought it would (at UT), but I wouldn't want to be anywhere else. That's the truth. I'm glad I'm here."Tue, Nov 15 14:27:33 from TweetDeck
wesrucker247 It's been a pleasure covering Vols Sr RB Tauren Poole. One of the classiest guys I've covered. Kid will be successful in life, for sure.Tue, Nov 15 14:30:23 from TweetDeck

I think his legacy will be tied up in the next year. If the Vols improve, then these are the guys that laid the foundation and got us through the tough times. If the Vols continue .500 (or worse!) football, then they will fade as just one more mediocre class.

Game Ball for Brodus

How to play for UT?
  1. Fall asleep on the couch.
  2. Wake up about an hour before the game.
  3. Answer the phone.
  4. Get a police escort to the stadium.
  5. Suit up.
  6. Kick three extra points and a field goal.
An amazing story. The Dooley quotes are, as usual, priceless.

Molon Labe Sign on Gameday

We're winning? Actually, I have no idea why someone would be holding up a sign at College Gameday that reads "Molon Labe" and has a picture of Bert (as in "and Ernie"). My Google-fu was weak on trying to figure this out.

Moar Plot!!1! from the UT Band

The sad state of UT sports has now infected the Pride of the Southland Band. I don't think anyone liked the Wizard of Oz skit - everyone was having Carnicus flashbacks. They should be more like the radio stations that brag "more music, less talk."


I'm more of a traditionalist...

Mouse Manure - Dooley Presser

wesrucker247 Dooley: "It's Tennessee. I don't care how many guys we lose. We're still Tennessee."Mon, Oct 10 12:29:18 from TweetDeck

The Pants

The Pants didn't pull out the victory in Florida, but they are still cool.

Go Gata

About a 10 point underdog, but I hope we beat them for a variety of reasons, including this:
