After hiring Josh Heupel, Danny White may not be the AD Vol fans want, but is he the AD they need?  Or deserve?  Discuss.

Use the force, Luke.

Kirby’s been just as flattering about Cincinnati.  Sounds like those bulletin boards are gonna be barren.


UPDATE:  Kirbs can give as good as he takes.

“I mean, a lot of those things you saw, you’ve seen all year.”

You know, if you squint hard and forget Georgia played Florida a couple of weeks ago

Smart explained that Stetson Bennett and D’Wan Mathis could just as easily have connected on big plays like Daniels did against Mississippi State, when he completed four passes of 40 or more yards after the team had three completions of more than 40 yards in the first six games combined.

“Like I told you, I’d seen it in so many practices,” Smart said. “You guys have asked if we have confidence throwing it, and yeah. I’ve seen those same plays. I’d seen Stetson [Bennett] and D’wan [Mathis] make some of those plays against us in practice, so I knew it was there.”

I just can’t.

Kirbs, don’t tell us it’s raining.  Please.

A bright future in sales

This is such good coachspeak that it would make Kirby jealous he hadn’t thought of it first.

Let the good times roll.

Shorter Boom:  ‘Cock fans, if you ignore the 6-12 run we’re currently on, we’ve been really successful.

U got the look.


Meanwhile, Gatewood, a former top-50 recruit and Auburn transfer, has appeared in each of the last three games. He played in the first three quarters of a game for the first time at Missouri.

Against Missouri, Gatewood completed 1 of 3 passes for 12 yards and gained six yards on three carries. Gatewood’s lone pass completion was then fumbled by wide receiver Josh Ali.


“He looked comfortable,” UK offensive coordinator Eddie Gran said of Gatewood earlier this week. “I liked his eyes in the huddle. He’s got a little bit of that Stevie Johnson deal. It just doesn’t faze him. He was excited.

I hope somebody asks Ojulari and the rest of Georgia’s pass rushers what they saw in Gatewood’s eyes when they meet.

Thrown under the Gus Bus


Last Saturday in Athens gets easier to understand.

Kirbs doesn’t care for Auburn.

The tone here is something.

I’m not gonna say that borders on contempt (although I think you can see the border from there), but it’s definitely got an element of Saban-esque “I don’t have time for that shit” to it.

Oh, and bonus points for using “coachspeak” in its proper context.

TFW you try to pretend the horse isn’t already out of the barn

Now this is more like the NCAA I’ve come to know and love.

The “many already allowed by Division I rules” bit is a nice touch, don’t you think?  Totally explains why Team Emmert has been fighting like a bitch to have the ruling overturned on appeal.

“… Kyle better work because Emory is trying to get his job.”

Uh hunh… right, Dan.

He’s not ruling out Emory Jones taking the quarterback spot from Kyle Trask. Florida head coach Dan Mullen expects a competition between the two this season and while everyone expects Trask to be the guy, Mullen insists that Jones will see the field a great deal.

I’m not ruling out that I’m going to win the lottery.  We’ll see how that works out.
