Friday morning buffet

It’s been a long week, hasn’t it?


UPDATE: Damn, Vol fans – when Cutcliffe turns you down, you’ve got troubles in River City.

    I found it curious also that Kiffin said that he planned to call the plays at the same time (I assume) his school was trying to lure an offensive coordinator from their biggest rival.

    CTG would be a great choice.Sundiata Gaines hit the game winner vs. cleveland .DGD

    David Cutcliffe the head coach scares me faaar less than David Cutcliffe the offensive coordinator. With the exception of Eli Manning, Ole Miss was average. As head coach, he reminds me a lot of Chan Gailey.

    He’ll have better players in Knoxville, and his staff could have a lot to do with how well he recruits. But this is exactly the guy I wanted Tennessee to hire.

    How do they pick USC at 12/1 with Lame Brain at the wheel? Must have done the odds before the hire….

      Pac Ten schedule, loaded talent-wise… They also get Oregon at home.

      Non-conference is @Hawai’i, Virginia, @Minnesota, Notre Dame.

      They’ll be in the title hunt going 12-1… so having 12/1 odds aren’t so bad.

      To me, Texas at 5/1 is befuddling.


  5. Do the hillbillies honestly believe that The Ogre only just started cheating on Tuesday night? Toothless Nation astounds me.

    The Cutcliffe deal may eventually go down, but there are some ripples in the force over Cut bringing his staff from Duke.

    If you will remember staffing issues caused Cut to get fired at Ole Miss. He does that loyalty thing, ya know?

    I just hope Derek Dooley is not the fall back (fall back, back, back, back) position…not sure I could deal with that.

    Ooops, the ripple may have turned into a tsunami.

    Knoxville paper says deal is off over staffing issues.

    Hamilton trying to dictate staff members?

    As the hour glass turns, these are days of a Vol’s life.

    South Carolina 125/1 — Man, I should get in on this early, because next year is the year of the Gamecock!

      I think it’s a waste of time for the oddsmakers to even break down the odds for South Cackalacky…

      I’d put it somewhere between ‘no chance in Hell’ and the plague of locusts

    USC on bowl and tv probation per NYTimes. Perhaps this is why Pete left. If so, this might explain SC seeming so desperate as to hire Kiffin since no one else in their right mind would want to walk into a meltdown at USC. Why SC would want someone who has such a blatant disregard for rules is beyond me, especially now, but you get what you pay for — both in coaching and recruiting. Sadly, Kiffin could leave TN in a probationary situation as well.
