Third Saturday in October
« on: October 18, 2018, 08:13:44 AM »
UT gonna mop the floor with pachyderm innards!!!  Casual observers unaware, UT has been laying low for years in preparation for this- the pure and unadulterated hatred for all things Bama (except for poaching their staff from time to time) led to the unorthodox strategy of rope-a-doping and opposum'ing, and taking down the mighty Tide when they'd least expect it and affecting the maximum damage and embarrassment. 

Book it.  either:

Bama 17; UT 52 or Bama 52; UT 17 ...... one or the other, Bama... 

UT will break Bama's fists (using their face's).  It's ON.

One of your "predictions" is going to get crunched.

I noticed that Fat Bastard aka Philip Fulmer has gotten into the fray with some negative ditty about the state of Alabama. I don't think anyone ever accused him of being intelligent, but p I s s I n g off Alabama the week of the game is not smart.

eh- ol' phil is in attempt to recover the rivalry, which hasn't been one for quite some time.  i wonder how ticket sales are going for that game?  i imagine the stadium sold out, but.... the interest in the program is under assault, and nobody in orange really wants to see the beat down that is about to happen.  gotta make it interesting somehow, maybe?

Going into the 1971 game the Alabama-Tennessee series was tied 23-23-7. Starting with that 1971 game and counting the original 1993 tie as a forfeit to Tennessee, Alabama has won 32 times to Tennessee's 15. 

The score of the 1971 game? 32-15 Bama!

Tennessee is hanging in there more than I expected.  I'm going to give Pruitt plaudits for being better than Jones.  Yay.

I have not seen them quit this year on the field.  Their OL is still a mess though.

Does anyone think they could beat Alabama's second and third strings?

I read that Saban  is 11-0 vs UTenn. That’s a tough stretch. I can’t imagine being in the middle of a losing streak like that. We went a good while winless vs OU and Texas during the 00’s but not that bad. 

I figure Bama averages a loss per year might as well be this week. 

UTenn 28 Bama 27.

Instead of Roll Tide the BAMMERS should be yelling If You Ain't Cheatin', You Ain't Winning.


I would like to know how much they spend on steroids and performance enhancement drugs annually probably more than some schools entire football budget.

UT vs BAMA hasn't been a rivalry since Doug Dickey was head coach.

BAMA dominated the series while both Battle and Majors were the coaches, then UT dominated when Fulmer was coach, now BAMAs back to dominating again.

So it isn't a rivalry unless both teams can win every year or so and why we kept them on the schedule is ridiculous.

The conference should be the same for everyone, play everyone in your division annually and everyone in the other division on a rotating basis.

Personally I wouldn't kill a snake trying to crawl out of Alabama and I sure as hell never cared about watching them play football.

Fact:
Tennessee is 2-26 vs Florida and Alabama in the last 14 years.

it's been tough to be a Tennessee fan, but that is what I am and will be.  Under Pruitt, I think there is hope for some recovery but I still think opportunity to beat both UF and Bama in the same season (never mind UGA) is still several seasons away, and will absolutely correlate with one of those teams having a down season... guess which @OrangeAfroMan ?  :smiley_confused1:

sad state of affairs when a vol is calling for the end to the 3rd sat in oct. never thought i'd see that.
it is a rivalry of streaks, though. typically it's been 3-5 wins streaks, but the last few have been long streaks for each team. obviously both teams having arguably their worst period in their respective history while their rival is on a hot streak has a lot to do with that.

pruitt is laying the foundation for a return to relevance. he's recruiting well, and in the right places (oline and dline). something butch and dooley either couldn't or just didn't.
he's also put a lot of fire in them. despite the score, they didn't seem to give up and just go through the motions on sat. i think he's at least moving in the right direction. if he can fully achieve that return is yet to be seen, but like i said, he's laying the right foundation for it.

It'll be interesting to see what happens with Bama when Saban leaves and Dabo doesn't come home.  What's to stop them from the Mike Shula years?  Recent programs trying to replace a legend haven't fared too well.

This has been my gripe since it started - the 4 programs holding the rest of the conference hostage.
Bama-Tenn
UGA-AU
Bama-AU
Those 3 games have required the rest of the conference to invent "rivalries" and caused a drastic inequality in scheduling.

We recently replaced our best coach in program history with Ole Miss' worst.

UGA
.707  Dooley
replaced with
.462  Goff

UF
.879  Spurrier
replaced with
.667  Zook
-----------------
.735  Meyer
replaced with
.531  Muschamp

ALA
.824  Bryant
replaced with
.677  Perkins
-----------------
.713  Stallings
replaced with
.510  DuBose

A&M
.721  Slocum
replaced with
.533  Franchione

UT
.831  Neyland
replaced with
.444  Britton
--------------
.742  Fulmer
replaced with
.500  Kiffin



Now Auburn (Dye-Bowden) is an exception.  And LSU is (so far) on a 3-coach winning streak (Saban-Miles-Orgeron).

I could also cite that the only 2 losing seasons of Florida football in the last 30 - beat Tennessee both those dreadful years.

You could do that, but I'm not sure Smart has coached enough games yet to determine anything.
****win% listed are for SEC games only

I opine that Tennessee is on an upward trajectory, but in part that is because 0-8 in conference last year is, well, not very high.

Jones really was not a good coach, duh.  Pruitt may learn his way there, but at least he is hard nosed.
