Tennessee lacks a motivational stone.

I had mentioned in my initial take on the Tennessee debacle that the Vol offense looked confused, while the defense looked like it mailed in the game.  Here’s a good example of the latter:

That’s what you call the opposite of buying in.

    Yep…..gotta look at the coaching on this one. A defeat like this is completely on the coaching staff…..they’ve lost the players imo (respect/attention).

    One thing you can be sure of though, they will be ready for the Dawgs, too much history there. Call me crazy, but it will be a tight one.

      I’ll give you credit at least for persistence in propagating your ridiculous narrative. That takes dedication.

      I mean, it’s not like anyone here will remember that you were pushing this team as a “dark horse” all off-season, right?

      Whoops.

        Either you are just completely stupid or just overly paranoid…..or maybe a little of both.

          If I had a nickel for every comment you’ve made this off-season about how good Pruitt is and how good Tennessee was gonna be, I’d be drinking on you until Christmas.

    Yep, Smokey on Saturday night stopped and pissed on the mail box posts of Pruitt and Fulmer on the way to the vet.

    CB posted a photo of Smollett with a note: I can’t believe Tenn paid somebody to beat them.

    It’s a dumpster fire in Knoxville. Volnuts were optimistic last month and some were even crowing they were back and ready to take the East.

    Now, well not so much.

      My favorite exchange in that thread was when one guy said “at least they’re selling alcohol in Neyland now” and the next guy was like “if that’s how the team’s gonna play, they need to be selling marijuana, crack, heroin…”

    May I suggest Pruitt tell his players the parable of the 2 farmers…

    Yeah, I guess one year of Pruitt’s shit was enough for them. The dumpster burns bright in Knoxville.

    This is what ‘skill’ players with no line looks like.
