11 or II?

wesrucker247 RT @DesertVol: @wesrucker247 It's obvious now the preseason voters were using Roman numerals: II instead of 11 for UT.Sun, Mar 04 13:53:20 from TweetDeck

University of Tennessee, Los Angeles

The USC Trojans continue to build their program using former University of Tennessee talent. Rumor has it that David Cutcliffe may be hired as OC, Jay Graham as running backs coach, and Phil Fulmer will take responsibility for the offensive line. Negotiations are underway to replace Monte with John Chavis according to my made-up sources.

ClayTravisBGID Wow, did Lane Kiffin really hire Tee Martin at USC? Manning for OC next? Seriously, great hire.Wed, Feb 15 21:51:01 from Tweetbot for iOS

Best 3-Point Shooter

I agree. Chris Lofton is the best 3-point shooter of all time. My favorite UT basketball teams all include Chris Lofton. Those teams worked hard, were extremely entertaining with their fast pace and pressure defense, and had a lot of success. It would be hard not to like them.

Here is Lofton's "you have got to be kidding me" shot from way out over Kevin Durant.

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.

I think Jimmy thinks we are in for a rough ride...
JimmyHyams Since 1925, only oncde has UT had a losing season in football, followed by losing season in men's basketball: 1977-78.Thu, Dec 15 14:55:31 from web

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.

Misunderstood - Fear the Pants

Josh_Ward Has Tennessee's "Fear the Pants" slogan been directed at its own fan base?Sat, Nov 26 15:41:00 from TweetDeck

I can't believe we lost to Kentucky.

Learning about Cuonzo

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.

Dale Ellis #14

I grew up watching UT sports. One of my favorite players of all time was Dale Ellis. He wore #14 and that became my "favorite number" as a youngster. I worn #14 every chance I got when playing sports. Dale was at the UT Men's Basketball practice tonight and Wes Rucker sent out these two gems:

wesrucker247 Dale Ellis watched Vols practice for a couple hours. Got up afterward, ice cold, picked up ball, took deep 3. Swish.Thu, Oct 20 20:36:21 from TweetDeck

Pat - You are not alone.

One more UT post this evening..


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...
