Move over, boys, there’s a new 3-18 sheriff in town.

I knew things were lopsided in the Meteor Game rivalry, but I have to admit I didn’t realize they were this lopsided.

Florida’s win over the Vols was its 15th in the last 16 years.

In other words, Tennessee is going to have to split the next four games to better Georgia’s futility streak against the Gators.  And most of those Georgia losses came against Steve Spurrier and Urban Meyer.  UT has managed this against the likes of Boom and McElwain.

Helluva run, guys.

    They aren’t who they think they are and it doesn’t appear they will ever figure that out.

    Amazing… As bad as we sucked back then – they suck more

    Tennessee Volunteers = Vandy with a comically huge stadium

    I would appreciate this more if it didn’t benefit those sewer dwelling, possum eating ditch lizards.

    Saw a tweet yesterday, Tennessee is 30-70 in its last 100 SEC games. At what point do you have enough evidence to revise your expectations from an operational standpoint ?

      3rdandGrantham pointed this out a while back and I went and counted. UT has a losing SEC record since 2000. So they shouldn’t be talking smack about anyone.

      I wish Vandy hadn’t opted out. I’d love for them to make it 4 out of 5 against the Vols.

    I hate to say it but there isn’t a place better primed for Hugh Freeze than Knoxville right now.


  8. Vandy and UTe should open each season with an elimination game to see who plays in the SEC that year. It would improve the SEC Power ratings and cut down on how often we have to listen to Rocky Top.

    UT is routinely turned down by coaches.

    I don’t think they have identified a coaching candidate they wanted and signed him in any of the last three candidate searches.

    Unless the Haslams open up the vault and make Saban like play for Urban Meyer, the next search is likely to go the same way.

    Freeze makes sense, assuming his compliance issues put downward pressure on his salary negotiations.

      I think this is right, and the same is true for SCar – they should just suck the mediocrity up during these “re-builds”, stick with the coaches for 7-8 years and invest in facilities and recruiting. Everyone wants to catch lightning in a bottle after 3 or 4 years, and its just not gonna happen. Absent lots of hard work, or a serious misstep (or perhaps series thereof) by us, Bama and Florida, the mid-tier teams in the league have almost no shot at competing for a title…

    The ‘middle class’ of schools is going away. The Haves will become more dominant and the rest will become very average or less than average. Even without extra internal help. See Vandy for addtl. details. The general idea of ‘returning to the glory days’ for most schools is a pipe dream. Their glory days were a small window with a lot of timing and luck sprinkled in. UGA currently fits in this category, but has a decent chance to perennially join the big boys. There are and will continue to be only about 4 or 5 schools that will compete for natties and top shelf recruits every year, for the next 100 years. The Vols and Chickens and many others fanbases will be soulcrushingly disappointed from now until the end of time. Our Dawgs can join the top tier and stay there if our head coach can get out of his own way. I sincerely hope he does.
