As the Urnge sphincter tightens

Hey, are they having fun in Knoxville yet?

Jeremy Pruitt

Is growing more aggravated and agitated according to sources around UT’s football program.

Pruitt is blaming Bryce Thompson’s unexpected departure to the NFL on this situation.

Pruitt also believes this is killing him in the transfer market.

Though he’s trying to put a happy face on this Pruitt knows now that …

1) He’s at risk is his job …

2.) He’s potentially at risk of losing his buyout. I’m talking potentially the full 12.7 million dollars here could be at stake.

3.) The ongoing investigation could potentially inhibit Pruitt’s employability in college football.

Pruitt also thinks this probe is hurting his chances of finding coaches. If he makes it out of this he’s going to have four spots to fill on his staff.

    Nothing like a little adversity to reveal character.

      Good or bad.

      Hmm. I wonder which it will reveal in everyone’s favorite Mr. Potato Head impersonator? 🤔

    Phil will have to become the next coach since no one will want to go work for an AD who manages and fires this way.

    Hell, forget worrying about hiring coaches, JP may struggle to field a full football team in 2021…

    “Ty Chandler became the 17th Vol in the NCAA transfer portal. Mind you a program carries 85 scholarship players. 17 of 85 is 14.24 percent. That’s 1 in 6 players … This is farcical. Chandler’s move to the portal comes as zero surprise to us here as we called it. Chandler is a significant loss.”

    As someone who was a UGA student in the mid/late 90’s, this puts a smile on my face and a song on my lips. And may UT continue to suffer for many more years ahead as well.

    • I remember thinking we were gonna win in 1998, only to have those UT assholes stroll out of Sanford with smug grins on their faces, holding little orange cards with the number 8 on them (as in the number of times they’d beaten us in a row). Suffice to say I’m more than satisfied with how this rivalry has inverted itself since.

        Biggest flop in Sanford I’ve ever seen, we were never even in the game…. (At least Alabama ’08 we tried to mount a comeback and we were in the ’15 game for a bit….)

          I would go with Auburn in ’99 in this spot. That was beyond embarrassing.

              We won in ’79. The ’77 game was when Prince Charles showed up and his butt-ass-ugly face permeated down below the rail road tracks, over the top of the scoreboard and onto the field. We got shut out. But Scott Woerner had 1,000 punt return yards that day.

              Best Kentucky team ever. And they were on probation.

            Sorry, I am blacking out on ’99 between LSU (win in a squeaker) and Ole Miss (win in a squeaker), which is probably how I experienced it in real life… Kentucky ’79 is a few weeks before me though…


            • I think there was a squeaker against UCF in ’99 too. Cool Breeze was really an all-time bad coordinator hire considering what he had to work with on the D-Line alone.


          • Ugh, Auburn in ’99 was the closest thing to a waking nightmare I’ve ever experienced. Not to mention probably the most embarrassed I’ve ever been as a Georgia fan.


      • 3rdandGrantham

        Yep, remember the game like it was yesterday. Champ had an early INT to keep us in it, otherwise the O was totally dominated 22-3. Honestly the game felt worse than that score.

        My friend and roommate left the game in disgust at halftime, and we found him passed out back at our tailgate face first in the dirt with a mostly empty bottle of Beam laying next to him.

          The game was MUCH worse than the final score of 22-3. Memory is fuzzy but I seem to remember we didn’t even cross midfield until that FG around halftime. The 95 degree weather didn’t help but the score felt like 65-3


          • godawgs1701

            I was a drunk 18 year old, but I remember that on Georgia’s first possession, Quincy Carter fumbled the ball… I think he actually failed to catch a shotgun snap or something… and we either turned it over deep on our own side or went 3 and out. Kinda knew then that we might be in for a long day, but I had no idea how bad it would be.


        • Munsoning

          I remember that INT. Gave me hope that was soon extinguished.


      • The Truth

        Doug, I think men who hit women are among the most despicable cowards and losers on the face of the Earth. That said…

        The closest I’ve ever come to hitting a woman was leaving that ’98 game when a “woman (?)” who looked like she had been stealing groceries from Lulu waved one of those number 8 cards in my face, then got right up in my face screaming UT’s famed fight song, “Rotten Crotch.” Three words, three simple words: “Back up, bitch.” Thankfully, that was the end of it.

        The fire of 1 million suns will never be hot enough for the Viles in my book.


        • The only time I’ve ever come close to fighting someone at a Georgia game was the COFH debacle in 2000. But I know I would’ve really loved to have punched someone after Tennessee ’98.


      • I think Al Wilson just blitzed the A gap again.


    • amurraycuh

      I share your 90s suffering. I was a UGA fan/student in East Tennessee during the 90s run. They were insufferable. I still hold that grudge and my friends from then have no recollection of how obnoxious they were. Long may their suffering be.



    Not throwing stones..

    Fulmer, that’s all I’m gonna say.

    And the thing that makes this even funnier, forgetting for a moment about Pruitt, is how Nine-Fingered Daddy engineered his slow-footed kid, Baby Mays, a way out of Georgia to go play for this back-stabbing AD, idiot redneck Coach, and terrible football program because Matt Luke told them he was gonna move that slow-footed big baby to Guard because he sucked at Left Tackle.

    Nine-Fingered Daddy couldn’t stand to lose all that big time Left Tackle money from the NFL, oh no, so he did every low-down dirty trick he could find to get Baby Mays away from the “toxic environment” in Athens, GA back to his home in Hillbillyville where it’s all sunshine and rainbows.

    And that what happens? Even Tennessee’s idiot OL coach whom the fans now hate and who was the first rat off this sinking ship could see that Baby Mays was killing his team playing Left Tackle and moved him to, you guessed it, Guard, for the majority of the year.

    There literally isn’t enough schadenfreude in the entire world for me in this situation.

    BTW, not only did Will Friend take a $100,000/yr pay cut to leave for the same job at South Carolina, he also had to repay $50,000 to Tennessee per the buyout on his contract. That’s called “you can’t pay me enough to put up with this shit”!

    1) I didn’t realize it was quite that bad up there. 2) wtf is far doing? 3) Tennessee fans are at the we don’t want you, the next QB is better anyway stage. 4) they seem perfect for each other.

    Keep in mind that Pruitt got this job because at least half a dozen wiser candidates were smart enough to avoid the SEC’s own Chernobyl in Knoxville. This situation will ensure than no truly qualified man will even do a phone interview with them in the future.

    If Pruitt has any brains he’ll dial it back and run a squeaky clean ship for the rest of his tenure. Shit, you’re gonna lose anyway. May as well secure all that guaranteed money while you can.

      This isn’t about the infractions. UT’s been doing this for years and with enough arrest to start their own television series (Bad Boys in Knoxville). This is being used to kill that buy out and move on. The catch… Just might get them on some serious probation, adding gas on the dumpster fire that exist.

        The catch is what new coach would agree to their terms when he knows they will use any excuse to get out of the deal. Say what you want about Auburn’s hiring and firing, but at least they pay the guy for his troubles.


  19. Pruitt didn’t even know what asparagus is and you expect him to run a college football program? Fulmer played this exactly right.

      Dude, that video clip just absolutely blew me away the first time I saw it.

      There’s “dumb Alabama resdneck,” and then there’s Jeremy Pruitt.

      If there was no such thing as football, that guy wouldn’t have enough brain cells to rub together to even dig ditches. That’s how stupid he is.

    Between UF’s melt down, UGA’s strong finish/news of returning players, and now the urnge meltdown, it’s been a heck of an end to the season/start of the off season.

    Add a few more via the portal, get a full off-season in, and let’s go kick some ass next fall. It’s always a good time to be a dawg, but sometimes times are better than others.

    And because my formative dawg years were in the 90’s, I’ll add a hearty #FTMF
