Vol fans, Booch has one word for you.

Can you guess what it is?

In the wake of the inexcusable loss at South Carolina the swirl of negativity around Tennessee is at an all-time high in the program’s fourth year under Butch Jones.

“This football team’s fine,” Jones said. “This football program’s fine. I love our fan base. Everything is fine. We’re going to be just fine.”

Life imitates Internet meme.

“Tennessee showed it never was back, while Georgia has a long way to go…”

I’ll take “Headers I Can’t Argue With” for $200, Alex.

It’s not fair. Got it.

I’m honestly sorry to hear that Alvin Kamara is lost for the season.  He’s one of those players I enjoy watching, even if I don’t dig his uniform colors.

And I’d like to feel sorry for the UT coaching staff, because they’re watching a promising season go down the tubes because of a rash of injuries.  I say I’d like to, but then I see this…

… and think, what, dude, were you sick and missed the 2013 Georgia game?  Go find somebody else’s shoulder to cry on.  And while you’re at it, fix the shitty turf in your stadium.

When the going gets tough, the Urnge start whining.

Alabama whupped Tennessee 49-10.  Know why?

Geez, dude.  Show a little dignity.

Booch channels his inner bizarro Dooley.

I think this is the opposite of building up your opponent’s long snappah.

You need to get out more, son.

And so it’s come to this.

Tennessee beat writer offers consolation to Georgia fans, urging patience for better days ahead.

A fast recruiting start alone doesn’t take you where Georgia wants to go. But the Bulldogs are at least headed in the right direction.

You just couldn’t tell it against Ole Miss. And you probably won’t be able to tell it against UT, either.

You know, I’m really starting to dislike this season.

Something else that’s going to be a big deal?

Jesus, Booch, give it a rest, man.

It’s natural to assume that Tennessee, and sophomore defensive tackle Shy Tuttle in particular, might have some extra motivation this week.

With No. 11 Tennessee (4-0, 1-0 SEC) visiting No. 25 Georgia (3-1, 1-1) on Saturday at Sanford Stadium in Athens, Ga., Tuttle and the Vols will get their first shot at the Bulldogs since he was injured last season on a low block from behind by Georgia center Brandon Kublanow.

Tuttle suffered a broken fibula and torn ankle ligaments on the play, which sidelined him for the rest of his freshman season and resulted in a lengthy recovery that ultimately forced him to sit out the Vols’ season opener this year.

But Tennessee coach Butch Jones said Monday that Tuttle and his teammates won’t have revenge on their minds when they cross paths with Kublanow and the Bulldogs on Saturday.

“Again, it’s unfortunate that, that happened, but Shy has recovered from it,” Jones said during his weekly Monday press conference. “And you can’t focus on that. You have to focus on the task at hand and winning your one-on-one matchup and your preparation. I don’t even think he’s thinking about that, and neither are we.

“Again, it’s a new game. It’s a new season. It’s a new opportunity, so I don’t see that even entering in the thought process.”

The Vols clearly haven’t forgotten about the play, though. Jones referenced Kublanow’s hit on Tuttle earlier this month when he spoke to the Knoxville Quarterback Club, calling the block “unacceptable.”

I mean, if we’re gonna get into what’s unacceptable, let’s go through all of Georgia’s injuries in Knoxville during the last two visits, starting with Keith Marshall’s.

Your team’s favored and on a roll, Georgia’s reeling a bit and you want to gnaw over a football injury?  I guess it beats having to discuss other painful topics.

If you want my advice, though…
