Can we trade them to the ACC for FSU?
Thanks for the tip (also manbearpig). Good riddance. +1 to you both.
That is a lot of doughnuts for Fat Phil.
Dave is one ugly son of a vitch
Yeah, I knew they were in deep fiscal problems when I read last summer that the university was allowing the TN athletic dept to forgo their yearly contribution from the athletic to the academic department for I think a minimum of 5 years. Before I think TN athletics was giving the university something like 5 to 6 million per year.
As for Fulmer cheating, we all know he was but I think Ole Miss being on probation that caused Peyton to not go there and him ending up at TN had as much to do with Fulmers early success as the cheating. Fulmer never had as much talent as the Peyton years and the one year after Peyton left as the rest of Fulmer's tenure. I think playing with Peyton was a huge selling point to him with recruits. The TN talent level kept dropping after the Peyton years, heck most of our games against TN during our huge probation were competitive because even then the TN talent was slowly getting worse year after year.
Us getting Saban, South Carolina getting Spurrier, and Mark Richt going toe to toe in recruiting GA kids with TN just finally killed them. I dont expect much out of TN for the next decade at least.
Here is an Idea let bama buy their debt. then make them change that ugly orange to pink it fits their style of play. then we shoot ole smokey and get um a chihuahua, oh did I say I hate Tennessee in a football sense
They can thank the Dallas Cowboys for hiring Dooley and decreasing their debt!
Damn. Phil Fulmer's private investigating rate must have been real high...
Living in TN, They think that a couple big years in football will solve the problem. What they don't understand is they have been irrelevant for the last several years, and it's not going to change for a very ,very, long time!
I hope they never recover and have to sell the whole school to MTSU or Vandy... Nothing sucks like the Big Orange!
Other comments are great, I dislike him because of his obvious ineptitude at running a program. Thank God he is gone!
