Maybe it was just something he ate.

Shorter Phillip Fulmer:  Okay, okay, the other day when I peed all over everybody surrounding the Tennessee program I may have neglected to acknowledge that I played a teeny, tiny role in the Vols sporting two losing records in my last four seasons… almost a bystander, really… hey, did I tell y’all how much some of those guys sucked?

    I’m just a soul whose intentions are gooooood; oh Lord please don’t let me be misunderstood.

    Phil is a class act. If your definition of “class act” is a fat, backstabbing whiner who takes no responsibility for his own failures.

  4. I do not want to hear his voice or see his fat face again..Why is he even out there now?

  5. “His recruiting dropped off. His hires weren’t as good. And he couldn’t keep up with the competition when other SEC schools upgraded their coaching.
    Of course, Fulmer doesn’t see it that way. He never did.”

    I would like to think the Richt hire and the following improvement in in state recruiting helped out a little with that.

      Kinda odd that the decline of the Tennessee & FSU programs happened at about the same time as Richt was hired at UGA, isn’t it?? ;-)

      There but for the grace of God and Mark Richt’s humility go I.

      I don’t know. Chablis was/is a really good DC. Phat Phil never recovered from Cutcliffe’s departure. He stayed too loyal to Randy Whathisname and it cost him. (Willie Martinez anyone)

      To Mudcats’ point, the rise of UGA under Richt did close down UTs open season recruiting of North Georgia’s best talent.

    I’m definitely not a Fulmer fan but this seems a little crazy to me. They asked him about the decline of the program SINCE he left and he talked about what went on after he left. What’s wrong with that? Do people want him to blame himself for what went on when he wasn’t on the job?

      I don’t like Fulmer. Never have. But IMHO he got abused by a school that is a serial coach-abuser. He’s right that the place went into the crapper because of management changes. What happened after he left is a textbook case of Athletics Department mismanagement from the top down: Incompetent University President hires incompetent AD who destroys football program (that’s not the only sport he f____d up). UGA was on that road with ol’ Red Panties but by the grace of God we escaped.

    “He got twisted like a pretzel by the middle management of the university.”

    Phil’s logic goes from pretzel to circular every time he gets within a first down of a Krispy Kreme feed station

  8. Cutcliffe leaves, Richt Hired, Mommas fed up with sending their baby to University Thugsville.

    Ergo – “The Fulmer Cup” and PhatPhil can’t get no job.
