Posted Wednesday November 21, 2012, About: Bray's final game at Tennessee?
Justin Worley and Nathan Peterman are the back-ups. Worley and Patterson were high school teammates and that helped get Patterson to UT from JUCO.

If it wasn't for the grades, I could see Patterson staying next year. He would be the featured WR.

I don't know if they are pro ready, more like pro talented.

Patterson is "grade challenged", but is a horrible route runner.

Hunter has a young son, that's his motivation. Hunter also has the million $ insurance policy payments hanging over his head. Hunter's stock has dropped to mid rounds because he is scared to get hit.

I don't think Petrino comes to UT. The predominant feeling is if the Vols can beat Miss St and not get blown out by the Tide, Dooley will be back next year. Nobody expected them to score 44, let alone trade punches with Georgia.

It shouldn't. Before Dooley was hired, Lovie Smith of the Bears was considered. His wife is white and that was not a factor. Lovie even coached a couple seasons at UT. Additionally there have been several assistant coaches here at UT that have had a different skin color than there spouses.

It has never been an issue!

No he just joined USC this year. He was at UK for a couple of years with Randy Sanders.

Vandy is in love with Franklin. The only way he leaves is for a bigger job. I don't think Vandy would then go after Smart.

That's the rumor. AD Hart used to be at Alabama, we got Sal Sunseri to be the Def Co from Alabama this year. With Sal in place, the thought/hope is that Kirby could easily step in.

The only coaches left from last season are Dooley and Chaney the OC. Chaney needs to go quickly. He has already admitted to giving up on the run in the 2nd quarter of the Florida game, when UT had the lead and this week he basically admitted he ignored Cordarrelle Patterson since the NC State game.

Fulmer stepped in when Majors had a health issue. Majors felt he was ready to come back after a few games. The AD pushed Majors out and Johnny has repeatedly blamed Fulmer for starting the pushing.
Posted Thursday September 27, 2012, About: Does Tyler Bray need an attitude adjustment?
He won't come back now. UT just honored Johnny Majors. Too much anger between the two of them.

Not a chance. If UT makes a change, I think it will be for Kirby Smart or Charlie Strong. Dooley will probably get 1 more year anyway.

Vacated games under his watch are hard to pass over. I know he has not been proven or guilty, but it's happened at 2 schools when he was there. It's the stigma.

If that happens, just stick with Basketball. Cuonzo is making major improvements.

Some of us keep going all 4 quarters!

Normal eye candy. Except ESPN sent Holly Rowe to Knoxville.

He said her family were all UT fans, thats how they got the tickets. I should have asked if she is a Jets fan this season.

Not this year. Haslam's just bought the Browns. Thunder Thorton out of Chattanooga was not happy with Hamilton or the Dooley hire, he has backed off.

1 donor that would throw ridiculous money would be Bruton Smith, but he wants UT to play a football game at Bristol Motor Speedway as a condition. Might be worth it, if you can get the right coach.
Posted Thursday September 20, 2012, About: Defining moment in Dooley's career looms
He was at Bama and at FSU before that. That helped get Sunseri to be the DC.
Posted Thursday September 20, 2012, About: Defining moment in Dooley's career looms
I would rather have Strong.

So at the game last Saturday, a FL couple sits down next to my family. She is covered in FL gear, especially the faded Tebow jersey. He is just wearing a blue shirt. He tells us he is only wearing blue for her. He is a Bammer fan. For fun, he asked her who was the #1 team in the nation.

Her response: "Oregon?"

Bandwagon fans kill me.

Gruden came up before Kiffy and Dooley. He was a Grad Assistant here and his wife was a UT cheerleader.

The other rumor is Kirby Smart.

UT won't be able to compete with Wally-World money. Our biggest donor just bought the Cleveland Browns.

Just to clarify, they delete a blog that had over 60k comments and that was where I spent most of my time. Still not cool.
