    Kiffin didn't leave the program in that bad of shape after all he was only there for one year. Even when you consider the players who left after Kiffen quit UT still had a top 25 recruiting classa nd Fullmer had a top 10 class in 08. Where are the top 25 results?

    It was also on Dooley for being able to convince some of those recruits to hang on at UT rather than go some place else. Salesmanship is a part of the job right?

    Bryce Brown was listed by rivals as the top player in the whole country not just the top RB in 2009. In fact many scouts said he was the best RB prospect to come out of HS since Adrian Peterson in 2004. He preferred to go to Kansas State and pay his own way for a year rather than just stick it out at UT with Dooley? Maybe a character flaw in Brown but Dooley could have talked him into staying.

    Brown might have been over rated and was only a 7th rd pick for the Eagles but UT could have used a good RB.

    Dooley has created an environment of excuses and quitting. He has to go.


    Gruden please. Make the man the highest paid coach in the world, i don't care, but we have to get a real name coach in knoxville if this is ever going to be turned around.

    Bray sucks and I seriously don't understand the hype for him.

    Someone on ESPN called him a Heisman sleeper! GTFO

    We would attract the best QBs.

    Watching the game last night, I called the collapse as soon as the Vols went up 20-13 and missed the PAT.

    You had to know the classic Vol collapse was coming.

    I agree with a lot of these post.
    1. Bray is super overheatedoverhyped. They kept saying last night that he was being rushed and couldn't get his feet set but I watched about ten plays or more that no-one was even close and he still threw of his back foot .
    2. Above is one of the many excuses this program continues to come up with and as a fan I'm sick of hearing them.
    3. Dooley is a great guy, super nice, but sucks as a coach and can't adjust for s**t.
    4. BRING IN GRUDEN!!! I been saying this since Phil left.

    Yeah, I agree.

    He's tall, throws the ball really hard and is a douche. Pretty much sounds like Mallett to me.

    His long ball is fantastic, when his receivers catch it. He's probably a douche because of his coaching staff.

    I was fired up because the vols looked very good and were off to a 2-0 start! I should have known better because they hadn't faced a real team yet. I don't think FLorida is a very good team though, I was pissed that Tennessee quit after a half of football. I guess I should have known this would happen always seems too. I just really wanted the Vols to win I hate Florida! But Since the Vols and Titans can never seem to be good at the same time, maybe their loss will mean a Titans win today! GO TItans!!!!!

    The Vols gave up too many big plays and, when the Gators tied up the game, looked defeated. After the next score, they quit. IMO, they have no heart and you put that on the coach.
