  1. That win in Rupp was great, but it seems like so long ago now with no sports. Hope everyone is staying safe out there.
  2. I'm afraid this will be a transition year for basketball. I am confident that Coach Barnes & staff will develop the young guys to have them play at a high level in upcoming seasons though.
  3. I almost left the game early last night because I was so disgusted with the QB play. Glad I stayed til the end though.
  4. I'm looking forward to heading down to Jacksonville for the Gator Bowl here soon. Basketball isn't shooting well, but from what I understand, the recruiting class yesterday was great.
  5. Agreed, much better weather. I went to Jacksonville vs Iowa in January 2015, plus also plan to go again in a few weeks vs Indiana.
  6. Despite the weather delays, it was really nice to finally beat Vanderbilt. I'm very proud of how the team never quit, despite the terrible start. I'm looking forward to seeing which bowl selects Tennessee. Men's basketball looks pretty good, aside from the FSU loss with too many turnovers. Lady Vols have played well too.
  7. I went to Thompson Boling Arena for the men's basketball game last night. This years team isn't anywhere near as good as the previous two teams, but I do think they'll improve as the season goes on. One is the issues is the lack of consistent big man play in the paint. As far as football goes, big win in Lexington. I'm proud of how this team didn't give up or quit. They really seem to be buying in to what Pruitt & staff are teaching them.
  8. https://www.cbssports.com/college-football/news/florida-state-coaching-candidates-bob-stoops-mark-stoops-lead-replacements-for-willie-taggart/ I think Mark Stoops would make sense for FSU.
  9. I just got back home from Neyland Stadium. Had fun despite the trashy women behind me. Defense played pretty well for the most part, especially forcing turnovers. J.G. #2 may play erratically at times, but there's definitely no questioning of his heart or toughness.
  10. I'm a bit nervous about UAB, although I'm not sure who they've played to get their 7-1 record so far. I'm looking forward to the rest of the season, which was surprising after the terrible start to the season. If UT can do their part to get to a Bowl, I'll at least try to go, if I can get the time off from work.
  11. It's great to finally beat Will Muschamp!!
  12. Typical UT vs South Carolina game so far. UT needs this one badly, but are down 21-17 at halftime.
  13. Kickoff vs the Gamecocks is at 4. UAB Kickoff is at 7:00
  14. Let's hope he can get his health in order right away. As great of a coach as he is, he seems like an even better person. I wish him the best!
  15. It'd be nice to beat Missouri, but I don't see that happening. I don't know anything about their defense, but their offense is great.
  16. Mississippi State was a must win, so they went out there then played pretty well. I certainly don't expect a win over Alabama, but I do hope for a good performance. I was in Iraq the last time UT beat Alabama, which was an ugly win, but I had no idea it'd be the last win over those guys til who knows when.
  17. I'd make today's win over Mississippi State #3 win so far for Pruitt. Hopefully he'll have all 10 slots filled out by the time the season ends.
  18. Glad to get an SEC win. Going into the game, I figured Mississippi State 27 Tennessee 17. Glad I was wrong though.
  19. I'm quite certain the Georgia fans significantly boosted the numbers. Thanks for the help in that regard. I don't follow the tv numbers, but I'm certain they'll be drastically lower vs Mississippi State this weekend.
  20. Vol fans get to wait til nighttime for the annual beatdown by Alabama, as it's scheduled for a 9:00 Eastern Time Kickoff. I'll be in Nashville that weekend for the Predators vs Florida Panthers hockey on Saturday night, then Titans vs Chargers on Sunday afternoon.
  21. Even I'll admit that's pretty good.
  22. Neyland is pretty old & worn down, I agree totally. Those trough urinals are terrible. Over the last 15 years or so, they've made some updates to Neyland, although the troughs needed to go years ago. It's kinda like how there's no hot water for hand washing in Thompson Boling Arena for concerts or basketball games. If you're a UGA Basketball fan, you should try to come up for a basketball game up here. Not really a bad seat in Thompson Boling Arena. I'm sorry things got dicey with some of them at the end, although glad most of the fans were nice. I've heard mixed reviews about Athens in terms of fan behavior, but would like to go eventually. Somewhat off topic, but one place I don't want to go as an opposing fan is Rupp Arena in Kentucky. Hopefully they'll have more beer vendors in Neyland next season to counteract the long lines next season. Glad you enjoyed Knoxville. I live about 20 minutes from downtown Knoxville in Lenoir City (you may have noticed the interstate exit sign on I-75), I don't go to many games though, largely because I work nearly every Saturday.
