Excuse me, is that a monkey flying out of your butt?

Did you ever expect the day would come when a Tennessee football player would utter the following?

“I mean, this is the season for us, really,” Johnson said. “It defines our season. We’ve got a tough week this week with Vandy, they’re playing great ball right now, they need one more win for a bowl game, we need two more.

“We’ve got our backs against the wall.”

Derek Dooley sure is building an impressive resume.

    Wow. We may be stumbling perilously close to the point where I start to feel sorry for Tennessee fans.


    Seriously, Derek Dooley had better win next year. I don’t think he’s getting a fourth year unless Year 3 is significantly better. I’m pretty sure Vol fans have forgotten about the condition of the program when he inherited it.

    Having fun, Da’Rick?

    Serious … Was looking at the Week 11 TV lineup and thought Vandy vs UT would make a better CBS game instead of Miss St & Bama … more drama for sure.

    Sticking with Derek’s obsession with military analogies, is this his Bay of Pigs moment?

    For a great read, go over to EDSBS and read Spencer Hall’s latest on the Fla/SC game. Hysterically funny and such pleasure to know how unhappy the Gators are.

    And to think that players once went to UT to avoid playing in peach bowls….

    What does UT expect? Dooley was what, Luke their 6th choice for head coaching put of desperation? Kiffen really screwed em taking the job and also leaving

    Well, ya gotta have goals. Every house is perfect for somebody. Every bride is beautiful on her wedding day. But beating VANDY to make your season! That’s like wanting to hook up with Nancy Grace at the end of a drunken night!


    • Nate Dawg

      Awesome. Chubby chicks rule.


    • Ubiquitous GA Alum

      -100 for that mental image


    • Nancy Grace

      Haven’t you gotten the cease and desist letter from my attorney, Gloria Allred, yet Hog-Body? We’re gonna turn you into bacon and fry you! Watch my show and you’ll see that I am naming you as a serial sexual harasser in our expose of conduct by chauvinist pigs like you and Herman Cain. Hmmmph! I’ll teach you to show me proper respect, Hog-Body!!!! Also, have your attorney contact Gloria directly to arrange for service of the lawsuit papers for the case I am filing against you and that Bluto guy. Just like Mandy said about Bluto in that movie, “That boy is a P-I-G, PIG!” Pigs, both of you!! You’re even named after one!!!!

    I’m starting to wonder if we are witnessing the beginnings of a long-term lease for Tennessee of the SEC’s basement. As someone said above, what about the future at Tennessee looks particularly bright right now?

    IMHO, CMR has played a major part in the UT slide over the past decade.

    Tennessee produces far fewer D-1 athletes than you would think considering the storied history of UT.

    When they were top of the pile in the SEC, they consistently picked up a few of the best players out of the Peach State every year.

    Since CMR got here, that has occurred with less and less frequency.

    You boys better watch your mouth before mama reads this and takes control of this conversation…

    Nash Nance is the illegitimate offspring of Nancy Grace and former AD Mike Hamilton. Specially reared in an abandoned carpet mill in Calhoun to lead the Vols to the Promised Land . Let him off the bench and Vandy will be the first to feel his wrath as Cyber connected symbitotic WR Da Rick catches 6 TD’s . VOLS RULE AGAIN!!!


    • Hogbody Spradlin

      Hey, I’ve got the Nancy Grace franchise around here. And by the way, it’s pronounced “Dreck” Rogers.


      • Indemnitor

        I apologize- I should have recognized the Nancy Grace connection from your “Hogbody” moniker.


      • FortWorthDawg

        Well Dreck “the dick” Rogers made his orange bed, and now he has got to lie in it. I really think CBS should have picked up the UT-Vandy game as well. There’s no telling what will happen with the thug count on the field for that game! We may even get another Franklin cry session.


  13. TnDawgFan

    Talk radio up here in Tn runs about 70-30 against Derek.


  14. Spike

    He was the La. Tech coach with a losing record. He wears orange pants with brown shoes. What do they expect? I hope his mom doesn’t read this.


    • Normaltown Mike

      “He was the …coach with a losing record”

      To be fair, if he had just ponied up and signed sCam and “enrolled” Nick Felony, he would be basking in the glow of a crystal ball this season.

    Last year, Tennessee was 4-0 in “bowl eligibility elimination games”, so this is nothing new …and yes, one year ago today, both Georgia and Georgia Tech players were singing a similar tune.

    But this year, I will choose to laugh loudly from my glass house.

    Such is the life of a college football fan.
