TFW you’ve had November

Look who’s feeling salty.

Man, those one-point wins over Indiana are the stuff dreams are made of.

    whenever i see that guy all i think about is Johnny Majors flat on his back in a hospital bed and the pumpkin under Neyland stadium twiddling his fingers with an evil smile like Mr Burns from the Simpsons.

    They are back, how exactly? Not only did they not beat any ranked teams last year…they beat exactly one P5 team with a winning record all year (mighty Indiana in the bowl game). Their recruiting has up-ticked this year, which puts them pretty much on par with an average Butch Jones’ class. Congrats.

    UT still has an uphill battle, as they have a big recruiting disadvantage. They also are rightfully perceived as a program that is far from sexy in the eyes of most. Having a losing record in SEC play this century generally will do that to you.

  3. Is 10rc becoming the new Texas? We’re back, baby!

    Oklahoma will be slapping the Vols back to reality in Norman in September.

      Maybe. New QB for the Sooners, Pruitt’s very good at rattling QBs, Oklahoma’s D still looks soft. I doubt Pruitt’s offense can get them over the finish line, but I think that game is going to be closer we’d like.

    Don’t see what the big deal is. I’ve been telling Tennessee fans to bite my ass for decades.

    I reckon that’ll be on a loop in the football facilities the week of November 14th.

    Yeah, Vols, your customary stroll through November just took a detour between the hedges. You can send your thank you card to Auburn, AL.

    I think that Tenn’s woes have been going on for long enough to consider them permanent. UT is more like UK than they would like to admit. A state with a small population and bad HS football the Vols did it with mirrors and out of state recruiting for years, particularly getting kids from north GA and Atlanta. That seems to have dried up now. Not to mention all those losing seasons.

      As 3G mentioned above, a losing SEC record in this century seems to back up your assertion.

      You can take that a little further and say that once all of the children of the remaining Hillbillies from the early Aughts have decided on college, there won’t even be any legacies that have been raised knowing any of their lore. They’ll turn into a B1G team living on glory from 60 years ago.

    I call that bold talk for a fat man who lost to Georgia State in Knoxville last year.

    What you say is true. But it’s still a top 10 class. That’s nothing to sneeze at. They finished ahead of Oklahoma and Oregon. Oregon had an all-time class for them.

    Still… I hate Tennessee. I’m not worried about the Hillibillies. They certainly aren’t “back” either.

    So I guess they’re cool with us calling them ass-bites.
