ramar smith has guts, but sometimes him and the other freshmen make me nervous. especially when crews and chism start jacking up 3s like theyre shooting guards. smitty im not a vandy fan, but i have high hopes that you guys will finally make a bowl this year. theyre getting some good players back.

Vols got alot of questions once football season rolls around. I can't wait.

Who's gonna grab the starting WR spots?
Rico McCoy gonna play MLB?
Demonte Bolden and JT Mapu better step it up BIGTIME.
Who starts at corner? Fellows? Eric Berry maybe after a few games.
Who's gonna take Morley's spot? Maybe Nevin McKenzie, he is a JUCO transfer after all.
Who's the starting tailback? Coker or Foster

yea they do have alot of questions, im not very good with college players names especially the younger ones but apparently they have a few top incoming players ar wr that might be able to step in. ive heard good things about slick shelley and lucas taylor played well at times last year. idk bout austin rogers. at tailback id like to see coker get the start if he stays out of the doghouse. he's a gamebreaker for sure.

Thats what I told my dad earlier this week...Vandy is going to be very talented on both sides of the ball this year with a lot of playing experiance, I think this could be the year we finally go to a bowl. it all depends on how Nickson plays this year to whether they are successful

If Nickson doesn't make stupid mistakes, we will make a bowl this year.

Coudnt agree more...hopefully he got all those mistakes out of his system last year. I like what Nickson brings to the table athletically at quarterback that boy can really run. He needs to work on his accuracy some though, he is very sportatic at times

By the way....Erik Ainge has torn his meniscus.

http://tennessean.com/apps/pbcs.dll/article?AID=/20070308/SPORTS0601/70308043

From what I've read, the most likely route is to just remove the torn piece, which, as the article says, would put him back by the end of May/start of June.

I was so pissed at the LSU-UT game. JaJuan needed to stop shooting the #$*&# ball, he couldnt hit the ocean if he fell out of a boat. I don't know why the hell Wayne Chism thinks he can shoot 3s, especially in crunch time. Same with Bradshaw. Big Baby manhandled our "big men." This team would be lost with Ramar Smith and Lofton.

If you have the time, Pit Bull, a Chris Hope banner would be amazing. No other sig makers seem to be willing to make one.

Pit Bull #53
03-16-2007, 11:09 AM
Ok, I can try, but it might be a while. Reason being, the hardest part of making sigs is cutting the picture, which I am horrible at. So I have to find pre-cut pictures online, and there's not a Chris Hope one at the place I get them at. So I can either try to find someone to cut one for me (which might take a while) or I can try a different style of sig that doesn't involved cutting the pic out. I'll search for some pictures and see what I can do.

It's not a long term injury though. Usually 2.5 months at the max.

Cashmoney
03-19-2007, 01:27 AM
Speaking of erik ainges draft stock, what do you guys think of his chances of being a first rounder next year if he has another great year like he did last year? that would show some great consistency in him because of losing his top three targets, plus he has the size at over 6'5 220+. im not a big fan of colt brennan and im pretty positive brohm will be the top qb, so to me that leaves ainge maybe henne and possibly sam keller. im probably leaving some guys out.

Have any of you read this article about the Nashville Predators???

LINK:
http://sports.espn.go.com/nhl/news/story?id=2804125

The Stars' management has some pretty harsh things to say about our organization. Here's a quote from the Stars' president, I believe...

"[The Predators] get more money from revenue sharing than any team in the league, they voted against the new schedule because they wanted to have an easier schedule for themselves. They take and take and take and take and never give back, and I'm sick of it."

Ouch...I wonder if this will result in a fine from the NHL for such open criticism of one of its franchises...

Matter fact, Ainge just had the surgery today, they removed the meniscus, and he will only be out 3-6 weeks. Thank god this happened during the spring, even though I think Crompton will be good, I'd rather wait a year to find out, lol.

Sounds like they are bitter from Tootoo knocking the sh!t out of Modano and then turning and puching whoever that other player was who was charging him. They're just mad we are on top of the league and we spend our money wisely and draft well...oh well

Ok, but its not a top priority or anything, so don't feel pressured to. Just if you ever get in a banner making mood, one would be greatly appreciated. I'm more than fine with the Meachem one I have now in the meantime.

It all depends on the year he has. He has all the physical tools you'd look in a quarterback. Teams may be turned off by his lack of mobility, and that he's a bit injury prone. His inconsistency is an issue, and he gets easy flustered. Other than that, he has a lot of upside. A first day pick definitely, but probably not a first rounder. As of now, he may be the 4th best behind Brohm, Brennan, and Henne. Maybe throw Nate Longshore into the discussion aswell, if he declares. Also watch for Andre Woodson out of Kentucky. I'm hearing a lot of buzz about him. I'm sure there are more good QB's out there, but its 3 am and my memory isn't kickin in.

Pit Bull #53
03-23-2007, 10:36 PM
UT is going to be very good next year. One HUGE thing they need to work on though is FT shooting. I see no reason at all why Ramar, JaJuan, Chism, and Childress can't be decent FT shooters. JaJuan has improved alot every year, and could probably be an 80% guy next year. Ramar seemed like he improved over the course of the year a little. He can be a deadly player if he becomes a good FT shooter with his ability to draw contact at the rim. There's no reason Chism and Childress can't be good FT shooters, both guys have soft touches and good rotation, they just need to work at it. I don't think Duke Crews will ever be a good shooter, lol. His motion is just wayyy to herky jerky, and his shot is flat. He looks like he's throwing a shot put.

But, Ramar will have a year of PG experience under his belt (if you didn't know, he's never played PG before....I'm telling you, kid is gonna be good), JaJuan and Lofton will be seniors. Chism got alot better over the course of the year, and he should continue. Childress will be a good roleplayer/3pt shooter.

The only senior on the entire team is Dane Bradshaw, and frankly, I'm glad he's leaving. Yeah, all the announcers want to do is slurp up to him about how he "does all the little things," and I commend him for that - he plays hard and gives it his all. But what good is it to have a player that's good at all the little things if he's TERRIBLE at all the big things. He's a 6'4 forward that is a horrible defender and a flat out liability on offense. His starting spot can be much better utilized by a more athletic guy that can actually defend and shoot.

Smitty, I got a question for ya

Do you think this is the year that Vandy finally has a winning record, and goes to a bowl game?

Richmond-W
Alabama-?
Ole Miss-W
Eastern Michigan-W
at Auburn -L
Georgia-L
at South Carolina-?
Kent-W
Miami-OH-W
at Florida-L
Kentucky-?
at Tennessee-L
Wake Forest-W

There are 6 games that Vanderbilt SHOULD win and three games that are VERY winnable...even a couple of games i have them losing they could win

I think this is going to be Vanderbilt's all around most athletic team on both sides of the ball. Just having Bennett, Goff are huge and I really like Langford. Nickson has experiance under his belt, I think it all henges on the play of Nickson, IF he doesnt turn the ball over, they have a chance of beating anybody they play

Vandy's biggest ? mark is Nickson as you stated, if he improve and doesn't make stupid turnovers(AKA Kentucky and Ole Miss game last year), i think we can win up to 8 games, but to answer your question yes i do think we will make a bowl game this year, I feel we can beat Bama, i have my doubts about beating the Gamecocks, but i also feel we can upset Georgia again and also i think we will give the gators one hell of a game and maybe even upset them also. The good thing that vandy has this season is the fact that almost all of the "Key players" are returning and we were very young at CB last year, with the experiance they were able to get last year from playing time will help alot this season.

Hey Titans fans, this is just a question about the University of Tennessee or UT. I am a junior in HS and am considering UT for college. What are your opinions on UT campus, campus life, education, and the overall experience if any of you are grads or go to Vol games?
Thanks for the info

Well i went to school their my freshman year, so i can be of some good help.

First year you are required to live in dorms, which depending on who you get stuck with, could be bad or good, unless you know somebody going there. Overall the dorms are small, but so are most colleges. Dorms can be a lot of fun, just dont smoke weed in the rooms it can be done very risky.

Campus life is fantastic, there are always activities going on around campus...plus UT is always a top 10 party school in the nation which is the sh!t. weekends during football season are some of the craziest experiances you will ever have if you like to party. Sports in Knoxville are the almost the best in the nation, with football, basketball(mens and womens) plus the baseball team is good. The best thing about knoxville is definatly game day, you get Shithoused and go to Neyland Stadium with 106,000 fans to watch the best football in the nation, NOTHING beats that trust me.

The education is very good, its the top public college in the state and one of the top 40 in the nation. The business and nursing programs are some of the best in the nation

The overall campus is kind of ugly, it is pretty much a concrete city, built on steep hills

The overall experiance was fantastic. If you go there you will love it.

Just dont party to much and miss class, it will cost you

if you have anymore questions you can pm me

Sounds like the Vols are having OL and WR trouble during spring ball. Pretty much knew the WR's were gonna be bad unless the recruits step up. Taylor, Hancock, Briscoe, Rogers, and Shelley could be solid, but I don't know if they can be gamebreakers. Hopefully Kenny O'Neal, Vinson and Gerald Jones or Ahmad Paige can step in a make some noise. O'Neal and Vinson are fast as blazes, Jones has great agility and cutting ability with good speed, and Paige is tall and lanky.

OL just isn't gettin it done. Knew it would be a lil bit of a problem with Sears moving on, leaving a hole at LT. Still not sure who's gonna fill that. I read earlier that Eric Young might...he was our starting RT last year. Chris Scotts an option too. I was really hoping the interior OL would shape up with guys getting older and stronger. McNeil should be fine at center, but our OGs need to get it done.

I'll pick my breakout players this year as:

Arian Foster on offense. He's bigger, stronger and faster now. Up to 225 solid pounds and by all accounts, is more explosive than he's been since he got here at Tennessee. He seems to be very determined to shine.

Xavier Mitchell on defense. Chavis said he's had the best spring that any DE has had around here in a long time, so that's a good sign. He played well last year despite average numbers. I think he can be as good as Parys Haralson was. I almost picked Rico McCoy here. He's a wildman playmaker. Hoping he starts at WLB. When he came in against Vandy last year he was amazing.

This was my second trip to NYC. We basically stayed on Manhattan in a hotel on East 39th street...I forget the name...Murray Hills East hotel? Or something like that... We did all the tourist things. Empire State Building, Statue of Liberty, Ground Zero, Times Square, Grand Central Terminal, St. Patrick's Cathedral, and saw The Lion King on Broadway. We saw Avril Lavigne(sp?) play live in Times Square for Jimmy Kimmel Live, which was cool. And a bunch of my friends got stuck in an elevator at the ESPN Zone, which I personally found hilarious...they disagreed. We also took a ferry and bus tour, which I fell asleep on my girlfriend's shoulder on (A lot of walking + Waking up very early = Me very tired). We didn't have much freedom to roam around, but aside from that, it was a lot of fun. I'm wanting to go back again.

TitanHope

I never paid much attention to hockey, but I tried to keep track of the Preds the best I could.

McPhearson was a very good QB in the AFL, but entered the draft a few years back. I'm guessing he'd rather be a starter in the AFL then a 3rd string QB in the NFL.

Speaking of other sporting news, the Grizzlies just drafted Mike Conley Jr., Point Guard out of Ohio State. This is a great pick, especially since PG and C may be the most important positions in basketball, but compared to Oden and Durant, it seems like a settlement.

They're great offensively, horrible defensively. So Brewer would have been a great fit, but they invested in a Forward in last year's draft by drafting Rudy G.ay(Stupid filter). I'm not a Grizzly expert, or basketball for that matter, but Mike Conley Jr. was the best PG in the draft and I guess he's an upgrade over Stoudamire.

If we can somehow manage to keep Gasol (he was involved in lots of trade-talk last season and seemed unhappy), then we could have a pretty decent offensive core with Gasol, Conley, and Miller.

The problem is that the Grizzlies are still terrible down-low for the most part. Other than Gasol, nobody on our team rebounds worth a crap. I'd love it if the Grizzlies went out and signed a rebounding/defensive type of low-post player. Probably won't happen though...

Tennessee released a depth chart today. It's basically the same as my guesses were with a couple exceptions. No FB since Holbert is out. 2 TE set will be with Chris Brown and Jeff Cottam since Brad is out for a little. Jeff is huge also. Starting WRs are listed as Austin Rogers, Josh Briscoe, and Lucas Taylor. Not too confident about that but we'll see. No one was confident about Meach, Swain and Smith last year even though they were infinitely more talented than the top 3 this year are.

Eric Berry is also listed as the backup CB behind Marsalous and Gaines. He's gonna play alot though. He's been impressive as hell during practices and scrimmages.

Coker was also reinstated to the team. He will start practice immediately but won't make the trip to Cal.

TitanHope

Gaines and Johnson are both smallish, 5'9 each I think. Marsalous Johnson has apparently be one of the more impressive guys during practices, I think he got the most improved award on defense this spring. Not much else to go on but that.

Eric Berry will be starting sooner rather than later anyway.

hope it isnt the other way around this year...im scared about the unknown this year

TitanHope
09-02-2007, 12:35 AM
45-31... *sigh*

A few things I realized:

1) Our defense definitely declined from last year. They'd miss tackles, and didn't look fast at all. Got little pressure from the front four, and the potential loss of Xavier Mitchell will make that even worse. Every where else looked average at best. If this unit doesn't improve, Tim Tebow is gonna have a field day.

2) Our secondary showed their size. They covered fairly well, especially against those WR's, aside from a pass interference penalty. But, they could not shed a block to save their lives! Add that to their poor tackling skills, and they made Forsett look like a Mack truck. Which leads me to...

3) START ERIC BERRY!!!

4) We have absolutely no play makers at WR. Taylor, Briscoe, and Rogers were ok, but there were no threats when it came to a big play. Just a 10 yard pass, and hopefully a missed tackle for an extra 5 yards. Someone better emerge or its going to be a long season. I mean, the RB was a bigger threat to score when he was receiving out of the backfield. Which also brings me to...

5) When did Ainge become Captain Checkdown?! A Piece of advice for Mr. Ainge: When its 3rd and 12, don't, for the love of everything holy, throw the ball 3 yards to your RB who's got a man covering him! I know you have little to work with when it comes to your receivers, but c'mon! You're down by two TD's! Maybe, and I know this sounds crazy, but maybe throwing the ball to someone who's past the 1st down marker, even if they're covered fairly well, has a better chance of making the 1st down than hoping your 230 pound RB can break a tackle, and then run the extra 9 yards to prolong your drive?

6) It was very unwise to punt it to Desean Jackson. If he even got a relatively good return, the crowd would be pumped up for at least 2 more possessions. Let alone score a TD on it! Way to show your arrogance and challenge him, and then wuss out the rest of the game by pooching it out of bounds.

7) Are Herbstreit and Musberger(sp?) on California's payroll? I mean, they were making the game sound like it was over after Cal's first 2 scores. Not to mention all the "Wow!"s, "What an amazing play!"'s, "The Wizard of Returns!", and any other superlative after almost every other positive play Cal produced. I never really bought into the "West Coast Bias" argument, but after seeing replay after replay of Cal plays, and all the attention paid to their players, I'm a believer.

That was sloppy playing. It was not Tennessee football. But hey, it could be worse. We could be Michigan.

Pit Bull #53
09-02-2007, 01:29 PM
Hefney looked lost out there. Mayo had a few TFL, but whiffed on a couple tackles. Ryan Karl didn't do jack ****. Tackling was terrible, and they gashed us on outside runs, especially when they faked the handoff to the FB and pitched to the RB. Bolden and Mapu got owned all night. DE's got no pass rush at all and didn't play contain, though Mitchell had a couple decent plays. We could have used Ben Martin. And yes, Eric Berry needs to be starting immediately.

Special teams are terrible just like they are every since year. Yet we still have no special teams coach after all these terrible seasons. It would have been even worse if Foster hadn't had a couple nice returns. Lincoln has a very weak kickoff leg. Every kickoff was fielded at the 15 or better, then returned to around the 40-45.

The only issue on offense appears to be crappy wide receivers. Lucas Taylor was alright, but he's not gonna command special attention. The older WR's are all average and best, and that is being kind. We DESPERATELY need the young WR's to get their asses in gear. O'Neal, Vinson, GJones, and Paige all have 10x the talent that Rogers, Taylor and Briscoe have. I thought the OL and RB's looked fine. Run blocking could have been slightly better, but it wasn't bad. Pass blocking was great.

Pro scouts will be very impressed with Ainge's command of this offense. He ran the no huddle flawlessly. No delay of game penalties, no wasted timeouts that I can remember. He was in total control and seemed mentally sharp. He was very accurate on his throws as well. He needs to work on throwing on the move. Would like to see him go deep a few more times, but I don't see the talent at WR to get deep separation consistently. We don't have a Robert Meachem. We don't even have a Jayson Swain. Not yet anyway. Chris Brown did look solid last night though. That's all I got.

TitanHope
09-02-2007, 07:28 PM
The red-zone offense was bad. No more "Wild Cat"-esque formations involving Lucas Taylor; I'd like to see Eric Berry in his role.

The reason Fulmer has kept his job thing long is because of his recruiting abilities. I think Chavis and Cutcliffe are excellent coordinators. No one should be fired after this. It'd sad that the posters on Volnation are calling for Fulmer's head. It was poor execution by our inexperienced players, and none of our experienced players stepped up. The coaching was poor at times, but I'm putting the blame on the player's shoulders.

Pit Bull #53
09-02-2007, 07:49 PM
No one is calling for his head after this game that wasn't doing the exact same thing after the 05 season. What good is great recruiting if the players aren't being developed? Where has this great recruiting gotten us the past handful of years? How many SEC titles have we won?

TitanHope
09-02-2007, 11:27 PM
You're right. We heven't won a SEC Championship since '98, which is when we won the National Championship. But its not like we haven't been successful. Not to mention we have Georgia and Florida to contend with, just to win the East! And I think the players are being developed pretty well. We send player after player into the NFL. I don't think development is an issue. If not winning the SEC every year is blamed on under-development, then that must mean most coaches suck. Because lets face it. Tennessee, Georgia, and Florida think they'll win the East every year, and the same with LSU, Alabama, and Auburn in the West. Not to mention the other teams on national scene. But, obviously, one team will win it and the others don't. You win some and you lose some. We beat Cal last year, and they beat us this year. That's football. The only issue I have with Fulmer is his motivation skills. He just doesn't seem to get the players motivated. That's the biggest factor in why we lose the big games, in my opinion. When Joe Paterno is leading a pep rally for Penn St., what is Fulmer doin? Leading his spirited speeches of, "We gotta go beat the heck out of that team!" or "Lets go play Tennessee football!"

I like Fulmer, Cutcliffe, and Chavis. We tried new blood, and it led to a 5-6 season. I just don't see any obvious upgrades to our coaching staff that could be available next year. Who would you like to hire to replace what we already have, Pit Bull?

TitanHope
09-15-2007, 11:48 PM
Well, I think I'm coming to the dark side.

This is the second game this season that our defense looked horrible. I think we gave up over 550 yards on defense? Thats inexcusable, no matter how good the opponent. The players looked like they had no clue about what they needed to do. Tebow had no trouble at all torching us whether through the air or with his feet. All he had to do was dip his shoulder, and he could bomb it to whoever he wanted. That's pathetic.

As for offense, so much for the "best offensive line in recent memory," according to Fulmer. 38 yards net rushing? Against a D-Line that struggles against the run? Thats not good. Not to mention, we never tried to establish the run. I mean, did we have an offensive game plan? Arian Foster looked bad...he played great his freshman year, but since then, I've not been impressed. Too slow, and thinks he can make spin moves and dodge tacklers. And Ainge needs to get over this finger... I actually think sitting him out of the Arkansas St. game and letting Crompton play will be a good idea. Its a game we can win without him, and we have a bye week afterwards. That gives him 3 weeks to heal.

And for Fulmer, I think he may be gone after this year. The California game wasn't a big loss, to me. It was a vengeance game for them, and our guys didn't want it as badly as they did. But with the Florida blowout, we're 1-2 and we have just started SEC play. We could very well lose to Georgia(Home), 'Bama(Away), South Carolina(Home), Arkansas(Home), and Kentucky(Away). Thats 5 possible losses, though they are very winable, we could lose with the way we've played defense. Not to mention, Fulmer only has a .600 or so winning percentage in the 2000's. I don't think he's a bad coach, but a change is needed. And if we do make that change, I'd totally be for getting a young, offensive minded HC. Try to bring more quality skill players here. I know our bread and butter is a good defense and running game, but how well has that worked for us? And look at the past SEC and National Champions? Yeah...for once I'd like us to put up 50+ against an opponent that we're supposed to smash, instead of a 21-10 game.

Also, I miss Robert Meachem!!! :(

Fulmer is 26-26 against current SEC coaches. Settling for mediocrity.

I'd love to get an innovative offensive mind. I'd love for us to get a coach that uses the spread offense.

Our version of "innovative" is using the no-huddle. Which is fine, but when we have no wide receivers that can get separation deep, then no one is gonna respect it.

Pit Bull #53
09-16-2007, 07:36 PM
Want to see something alarming? Copied this from another post:

Fulmer is 15-14 for the last 29. He's 26-26 against current SEC coaches, 1-4 against his last 5 ranked teams, 4-15 against his last 19 SEC teams with winning records, and 2-5 in bowl games with all losses being by double digits.

Let that sink in.

Here's a good article about Fulmer and the possible coaching situation. (http://www.commercialappeal.com/news/2007/sep/20/hes-got-to-go/)

You think that the University of Tennessee could somehow pry Norm Chow from the Titans? Or am I speaking heresy for think that my favorite college team should take a great coach from my favorite professional team?

Eh, I don't even know anymore. One week I'm fine with our offense, and the next I'm frustrated with it. I remember when we went with Randy Shannan as our OC, and we sucked. Then we bring back Cutcliffe, and our offense can score. But ball control offense doesn't work if the defense sucks and the special teams blows. And the fact the Fulmer and Cutcliffe are sticking to it is frustrating me. But I could only listen to the game on the radio, and half the time I actually didn't care. I instead talked on the phone for an hour during the second half cause I wasn't interested. And I love football and hate talking on the phone. So I dunno how well it went or what the play calling was. Ugh...just some creativity and adaptation the coaching staff would do wonders for this team. As of right now, I have no confidence in it or the staff.

I'd love for us to get a coach that uses the spread offense.

Is the "spread offense" you're referring to the "spread-option offense," Pit Bull? I don't want to hire a coach that runs the option offense, for some reason.

I'm very much a Titans homer. But, I do have other teams that I like, and they chance every year. I play a lot of fantasy football too, so I get interested in other teams too.

I have a good friend who is a Hurricane Katrina refugee, and he's a big Saints/LSU fan. So I root for them, especially now that they drafted Meachem. I rooted for Al Wilson and the Broncos the year Pittsburgh won the Super Bowl. I love Chad Johnson, so I watch the Bengals when I can. I also like Tony Dungy and Peyton Manning, so the Colts are tolerable. ;) I like Tomlinson too, but kinda neutral the Chargers.

I guess I like teams based on the players I like. I think I can say that even if I didn't live in Tennessee, I would still be a Titans fan based on Vince Young.

I watched it. Defense was TERRIBLE in the 1st half. We couldn't tackle for ****. Did much better in the 2nd, but they still moved the ball somewhat.

Offense looked good. Ainge was sharp and the INT was on a play where the WR and DB were 1 on 1 and he just threw a fade route and the DB outjumped the WR.

Austin Rogers is a bum. He dropped a TD pass where there was noone within 5 yards of him. Hit him right between the numbers. He is terrible at catching the ball. Multiple drops every week it seems.

10-27-2007, 09:24 PM
The pass rush isn't great, but right now the biggest problem is the pass coverage. And it doesn't help that we are playing extremely soft on the outside to help cover their deficiencies which is completely backfiring.

TitanHope
10-27-2007, 11:01 PM
Pass rush and pass coverage go hand in hand. We have 2 freshmen starting in the secondary, and if the QB gets 5 seconds to throw it, they'll be successful. Vinson doesn't look like he knows what he's doing, and he's soft in his physicality and coverage.

I don't know how we won tonight...

Pit Bull #53
10-27-2007, 11:12 PM
I agree they go hand in hand but the problem tonight was the coverage. Our linebackers are useless when they drop back. Look at how many throws went to the middle of the field, then look how WIDE OPEN the middle was. Jerod Mayo looked like a damn fool on that 4th down play in the end zone. It was a blatant pass interference and we are lucky it wasn't called. He never even knew where the ball was.

And onto our corners. Big problems there. We play them 10 yards off very frequently and Blake Mitchell saw that and attacked it. Then on the occasion that we do put them up on the line in press, they get whipped. Look at the Willingham forced fumble that we recovered. The receiver ran a slant, Willingham tried to jam him and completely whiffed. Luckily he didn't give up on the play.

Another thing I noticed with our corners is that when we play them up, they bail on routes immediately. They don't even go into their backpedal. As soon as the receiver starts his route, they would turn and run which is great if the WR is running a deep route, but there is NO WAY you can stop underneath routes if you turn your hips and bail on it that quickly.

We were very lucky that our secondary wasn't exposed more than it was. Mitchell misfired on alot of throws to open WR's downfield.

Pit Bull #53
10-27-2007, 11:33 PM
Larry Slade is terrible also.

Don't you get a lil tired of Cutcliffe's Horizontal Offense, too? I mean, he has improved Ainge since he got here, but the offensive playcalling seems awful conservative. We have to run the safest routes in the country. Everything is a 5 yard out, or a comeback, or a swing route by the HB, or even a drag route. We throw 1 fade to Lucas Taylor per game it seems.

Every aspect of our team just seems so conservative and soft it drives me insane. Conservative on offense, conservative on defense, ****** on special teams (except tonight), soft on both lines of scrimmage.

Quote of the day from Fulmer - "There won't be a letdown in this game"

Ok Phil whatever you say. I think the sign of bad coaching is that we are terrible after halftime when the other teams have a chance to adjust.

Pit Bull #53
10-27-2007, 11:36 PM
I also thought it was hilarious when after the game Phil said "The defense kept us in the game"

What the hell was he watching?

TitanHope
10-27-2007, 11:55 PM
Phil's one liners are great. I remember the comback at LSU. It was the first game back for LSU after Katrina, and the place was crazy. Ainge was cracking, so Rick Clausen was put in and he led us to a comeback. Then after the game, Fulmer was interviewed and said the Clausen leading the comback against his former team was the top story in football right now. Afterwards, commentators everywhere trashed him for not mentioning Katrina, LSU's character, or anything. Fulmer lives in his own world.

Who is Larry Slade? The DB coach? The playcalling in conservative, but it has to be. Lucas Taylor seems to be our only quality receiver, and everyone else are average at best. I don't understand why we don't hammer the ball when we have 3 quality backs. But, it's an improvement over Randy Sanders so I'm ok with it. Besides, we've put up a lot of points this year with less than stellar offensive talent. If only our defense would prevent the other team from putting up 40+.

Also, if Arian Foster fumbles on one more crucial point in a game, I'ma go crazy.

It looks like Hardesty and Creer will get more carries. I love the way Hardesty runs, and I think Creer can be the big play back that Coker was.

I ******* hate our offense gameplans. Cutcliffe tries to get so cute with his playcalling and it just pisses me off to no end. Look at Arian Foster's numbers this year. Look at his game by game breakdown. With the exception of 2 games or so, you will notice 1 reason why he doesn't put up big yardage. WE DON'T RUN THE BALL ENOUGH.

vs. Cal - 6.8 YPC and he gets 13 carries
vs. Ark St. - 4.8 YPC and he gets 12 carries
vs. Georgia - 5.8 YPC and he gets 17 carries
vs. Alabama - 7.0 YPC and he gets 13 carries
vs. Arkansas - 6.4 YPC and he gets 13 carries

He's only had 20 or more carries 3 times this year.

Instead we are content with throwing these stupid ass bubble screens to our WRs that NEVER work, 3 yard outs, and little flares to the TEs.

Sorry...I am glad that we won, but this just pisses me off and we continue to do it week after week. I know Foster has his shortcomings, mainly ball security, but he is a workhorse and has the big body to take a pounding, so why the hell do we not pound the rock with him?

I like Cut as a QB coach, but I hate him as a playcaller

TitanHope
11-17-2007, 08:16 PM
I remember the '05 season. I loved Haralson then too, as well as the rest of the defense. They played outstanding, but the offense was terrible. Randy Sanders tried to get fancy, and it cost him his job. I don't think Cutcliffe will get fired easily, but he needs to learn from the past.

I'm glad that we won, but it should have been better. Vanderbilt is a good team, and has a great defense. But our team knows that if we win, we go to the SEC Championship. If we lose, there goes the season. I didn't watch the game, but they should have played their hearts out and won handily.

I'm not a huge Foster fan, especially due to him fumbling in crucial situations. But he can play, and finds a way into the endzone. Thankfully, Kentucky is awful against the run. Hopefully Foster and Hardesty and pound it, and Creer can be the big play guy. We should have a productive day, but it depends on if the Volunteer team that played Georgia and Arkansas shows up, or the Vols team that played Alabama, South Carolina, and Vandy shows up.

Pit Bull #53
11-17-2007, 09:19 PM
Don't get your hopes up. We will throw the ball 45 times, 50% of those being WR screens or some route approximately 5 yards away from the LOS.

This is just something that I can't stand. You see Foster or Hardesty out there getting 5 or 6 yards per pop, then on the very next series, Cutcliffe sends them out in their cute little no huddle with 4 wides and an empty backfield.

Basically. LSU has a great DEF, but we were the better team for 3 QTR's. Then Ainge gave it away on two different occasions. It's a shame, but I think LSU with Dorsey, Flynn, and Doucet, all of which were injured for all of or a big bulk of the game, are the better team. Just getting to the SEC Champ was an accomplishment, and I didn't see it coming at the beginning of the year. Without Ainge, we wouldn't have come close.

The question now is who's the QB next season? Crompton? I hope we manage to land Terrelle Pryor, a 5-star Dual-Threat QB and also a 5-star basketball recruit as well.

The Championship Subdivision National Championship game in Chattanooga, TN is this Saturday! Its Appalachian St. vs Delaware. I'm going, and it looks like it could be a good game. We all know about Appy St.'s Armanti Edwards, Dexter Jackson, and Kerry Brown. I also really like Cory Lynch, their SS. But Delaware also has Joe Flacco, who is a legit NFL QB prospect. He's a 6'6 pocket passer who can make all the throws, but had to transfer from Pittsburgh. He should be fun to watch in person, and so should the rest of the game.

Last year it was UMass and Appy St. A conglomerate of rednecks and yankees, and it was entertaining. The Appy fans were in their camo with painted faces screaming the entire game, and the UMass fans sat quietly the entire time while the men would occasionally yell and clap when their team did something good. The Appy fans were almost as entertaining as the fans, so I expect the same things this year. :)

I like him as a QB developer, but as you probably already know...I freaking HATE the design of our offense. Hate hate hate hate hate it. That short dink and dunk **** pisses me off to no end. I hate the fact that we throw bubble screens to our WR's 5 times per game, I hate the fact that the main route we have our WR's run is a 5 yard out, and I hate the fact that we completely abandon the running game when it is averaging 5-7 yards a pop just so we can go no huddle, empty backfield with 5 wides, throw a screen to one of them and let him run behind our other WR's that can't block for crap.

Clawson took an 0-12 and turned it into a 10-3 team in 3 years, and took a 3-8 team to a 9-4 team.

The vols really sucked it up in recruiting this year.

Recruiting is more about needs than it is about ranking. I mean, yeah we could be Miami and picked up the top 7 OLB's in the class, but whats the point? We had an outstanding year last year, and have pieces in place for the next two seasons. One poor class won't hurt, especially considering the poor showing was due to only having a partial coaching staff. We're always solid in recruiting. This year was just a fluke due to coaching changes.

This one game where I'm truly in the mindset of, "Just hopin' for a clean game with no injuries." I'm a Tigers and Vols fan, so I'm just hoping for a fun game.

As for who wins, I dunno. Tigers probably have a bit better starting talent, but Vols are a bit deeper. I give Memphis the edge, as they're home in the FedEx Forum. I used to live in Memphis, and still go back regularly, and let me tell you, they treat the Tigers as their pro team and the Grizzlies as their college team. If you go to a Grizzlies game, you'll see just as many guys in Memphis Tigers hats as you'll see people in Rudy "Gizay", Brad Miller, or their old Pau Gasol jersies. They love their team, and that arena will be rocking. For the Vols to have a chance to win tonight, they need Chris Lofton to have an outstanding game and need someone, whether Chism or Williams, to be able to hold up Joey Dorsey on both offensive and defensive ends. If the Vols get Dorsey in foul trouble, they'll be in great shape as Memphis is a different team with Dorsey on the bench. Nevertheless, it should be a great game.

I cant believe the vols won while jujuan smith and chris lofton pretty much did zip on offense in this game.

Yup, great game. Found out I'm a bigger Vols basketball fan when I jumped up after Tyler Smith made that GW jumper. :)

That was one hell of a game the other night. I really didn't think UT would pull it out...

Vandy got lucky. You could tell that UT was still fatigued from the Memphis game, and the game was still close. But I don't want to take anything away from Vandy. Kudos to them. Shan Foster is a great player.

#1 for 29 hours! w00t!!!

Tennessee is taking it to Kentucky right now, 22-9. Hopefully if we kill Kentucky today we wont fall past number 3.

Tough loss for UT today. Hope it doesn't cost em a one seed.

No post presence, no point guard, and no defense... That'll cost us a national championship.

We should be a 2 Seed, unless Texas loses in the Big 12 Tourney. If Texas is the Big 12 champ, they'll have a win over Kansas on their resume'. North Carolina, UCLA, Memphis, and Texas are the favorites in my book.
