08:16 AM ET 11.12 | In the estimation of many, Derek Dooley won't get a fourth season in Knoxville, which would leave the operative term "when" and not "if" he is let go. It seems likely that athletic director Dave Hart would let Dooley finish the season even if the Vols drop their contest to in-state rival Vanderbilt next week. Perhaps an announcement on his impending dismissal would come before the Kentucky game, though, if the Vols fall to the Commodores. Nonetheless, Dooley won't get a chance to continue to stabilize a program that had fallen on hard times in the final years of the Phil Fulmer regime as well as Lane Kiffin's lone season. If the Vols are able to net a bowl berth, an assistant coach would likely coach the game.

The UT Board has already contact Phillip Fulmer to see if he would be willing to show up to practice and eat Dooley. As a back up the board has also reached out to Charlie Weis's agent.

Alabama only drops to 4th. I'm sure there are a lot of butthurt fans out there. Odds are better this year we make it to the BCS CG than they were last year. It can happen.

Oh man, can you see the posts now.... FJJ would probably have a heart attack.

UT has to beat the Dores and Cats just to get bowl eligible and with no conference wins so far this year you can tell the fat lady to start tuning up your time is getting closer to sing.

Anything is possible. I have said all along that the Horns were not as bad as OU made them look and they could knock off KSU if the stars were aligned correctly and lets not forget USCw did put up 50 points on the ducks the first time around (a couple of stops and who knows). This is why they play ALL of the games!

Not what I was saying, but dem hairy Dawgs need to look better than you did in the W against us to beat Satan, that's all. And I am going on record as saying I will <gulp> be pulling for UGa in that one.

Yeah they're going to have to bring their best that's for sure. I thought it was possible when they almost lost to LSU, now seeing them struggle vs A&M I think we have a shot. Good on you for pulling for the good guys!

And I was on the edge of my seat at the end of the ragin Cajun game.....I was not wanting you guys to lose at all (not exactly rooting for you). :)

LMFAO, JK, you are one funny dude!!!!!!! Bama lost at home to a two loss team and Bama was a 16 point favorite. Bama is a "very" good team this year, but, IMO they were better last year. Don't forget they still have to play Georgia in the SEC CG!!! I guess it's possible that Bama could still get to the "Flawed" NCG, but quite a few things must happen and one of them will require you to root for USC to beat Notre Dame. Can you do that????? :-)
