“I don’t know about a two-year deal. Maybe I did sign something. But I don’t think so.’’

No doubt Jeremy Pruitt is thrilled to learn there’s no way Phil Fulmer intends to leave the AD’s office in too short a time to avoid having ultimate say so over Pruitt’s tenure at UT.

He added: “I want to do this as long as I am being helpful and if I had to put a number on it, which I don’t have to, I would say five years, six years, something like that.’’

Fulmer said it wouldn’t be fair to new football coach Jeremy Pruitt to leave after two years.

“If I was going to do that,’’ Fulmer said, “I wouldn’t have (taken the job) to be honest with you. I’m committed to being here’’ as long as he’s healthy and productive.

You knew the job was dangerous when you took it, Jeremy.

    ..”Maybe I did sign something. But I don’t think so..” What the hell is he talkibg about? He doesn’t remember if he signed a contract for two years? And this fat ass is in charge?

    Something tells me Fat Phil is going to wake up in a year wondering, “How did that happen?”

    “between the guidance I have received and my own experiences, I think I am more than capable of doing that.’’

    So true. Each day is set aside as Executive Time so that Phil can solve big money negotiation problems on everybody’s contract.

    I’ve seen a few comments on UGA’s current dumpster fire from UT fans. Apparently, Sherrer taking the job at UT, Roquan & Thompson going pro, UGA dropping to #2 in the national recruiting rankings, and a bunch of seniors graduating (I shit you not, this was one of their reasons) qualifies as a dumpster fire. Watching them go winless in the SEC again next year is going to be so fun.

    Fulmer wants to hang around long enough to reap the benefits (and get credit) for success he hopes to reap from the cheatin’ protocol and bagmen logistics that he’s working so hard to re-energize right now in Knoxville. How quickly we forget what a corrupt and morally bankrupt program UT was when Fat Phil “successfully” ran the show in the 90’s.

    I’m just waiting to see their messgae boards light up with stories of Pruitt on Fulmer’s lawn challenging him to a fight after another Florida loss.

    Good old Rocky Top, Rocky Top Tennessee.
    Well, sounds as if Pruitt has it rocking already.
    Fulmer forgets not only his contract terms but where he has been all his adult life…at UT.
    Now there sits Pruitt who has been around a few corners…Hoover, FSU, Bama.
    Fulmer is going to find out that his job could be in jeopardy already.
    Fulmer is not Rush Probst, nor Jimbo Fisher, and for damn sure Saban.
    Pruitt has been schooled.
    Say good bye, again, Phil.
    No doubt you have already pissed Pruitt off.

    You know what Senator? I’m usually a purest when it comes to the classics in music, but in this case. I like Jackson Brown’s ’77 version better than Maurice’s.

    As for the Vols situation, Fuck’em!!
