One thing fuzz has right though is that our beloved Vols will never be relevant again in this system.  All the talent is concentrated right where the media wants it.  Those teams that the media has deemed champions will be the champions from here on out.  The media loves to see the Vols fail.  We will live in mediocrity forever with maybe a few flashes of brilliance.

One thing?  

The Vols are settling into their rightful place as a middle-of-the-pack SEC school.  The sooner the fan base accepts that (which may never happen), the sooner our fans can go back to enjoying college football.  

I'm all for having winners and losers, I'm just against sore losers.  Before the ESPNification of sports, it just wasn't as big a deal, and everyone could just enjoy college football.  I realize some are too insecure to reconsider how they view things, and have their manhood wrapped up in things like being right and winning.  Participants may not deserve trophies, but they do deserve appreciation and support. 

I follow the team closely - am familiar with the entire roster and follow recruiting.  That's hard to do with all the bitching from all the negative fans who're never going to be satisfied.  ESPN has gotten into their heads and they don't even know it.  They want Scott Van Pelt's validation so bad they can't stand it.  It's pathetic when you think about it.  

You want to be a man?  Accept defeat graciously.

The first run TD by tOSU was because of a blatant hold which was clear in the replay..... and they showed that angle ONCE... the booth didn't say a word...

The Lawrence fumble was downed by Lawrence by pinning the ball to the deck for a full second of not two before ot was pounced on...

The interception late was a Clemson TD.  He had full possession and was in act of bringing it in when it was literally punched out.  Now on the field of play that was a fumble not an interception... in the EZ? Thats a TD. 

Now tOSU was clearly and decisively the better team and won accordingly and to the point that Bama better not mail it in (pun, in this political climate, intended)... and Dabo was shown for the loudmouth idiot he can be and has been since he grew in his britches and head swell... but.. the zebras were far from legit last night no matter.  That is all.
I think that you can blame the rules committee on you first point. They allowed the offensive line to use hands when they block. THERE IS HOLDING ON ALMOST EVERY PLAY TO SOME EXTENT.

The ruling on the interception was that he didn't have control. It didn't effect the outcome of the game since it was intercepted with 1:30 left in the game. It was officially ruled as an interception but either way, fumble or interception the reply was held up.

The first was Sermons run which you claim blatant hold...you can stop/start the video.

This is the interception...kind of hard to tell if had possession, but the review was held up.

So would Bama without Saban.

Projection is your forte.  See “ having your manhood wrapped up in things like being right and winning” below.

Most likely true, but that doesn’t mean we should just sit and be quiet.  Seems like you and roadie have that as a common thought.  Only your opinion matters, everyone else should just shut up and accept it.  

I'm all for having winners and losers,
duh?

I'm just against sore losers.

Your self loathing is epic.  You didn’t seem to espouse this opinion after the 2016 election.

What is every poster on this board Alex?

That's hard to do with all the bitching from all the negative fans who're never going to be satisfied.  

Not really.  Anyone with the internet can easily do it regardless of what another person says.  

ESPN has gotten into their heads and they don't even know it.  They want Scott Van Pelt's validation so bad they can't stand it.  It's pathetic when you think about it. 

Idolatry is your brand fuzz, not mine.

Once again, practice what you preach.

If you look at the 30 second mark, his elbows were extended out in a blocking manner, even so the runner was almost 10 yards past them at this point.

I'm curious if you thought Alabama was in it's "rightful" place until they got Saban?
Was Clemson in their "rightful place" before they got Dabo?
Was LSU in their "rightful place" until ty got a once in a Heisman Trophy " QB?.
I realize you post idiotic things often just to get attention but  why?
UT is where they are now because of some almost criminal decisions made by UT leadership starting with the firing of Fulmer forced by idiotic fans and a weak AD

No, they were under-performing, just as they're over-performing now.  Georgia/Florida should be the class of the conference followed closely by LSU/Bama/Texas A&M.  

We're not in the group and won't be in 10 years, either.  Wonder how many more coaches we'll have gone through by then, and how many more times I'll have to make this point?  

Was Clemson in their "rightful place" before they got Dabo?

They're a fluke, and a prime example of the importance of quarterback recruiting.  There are 130 teams playing Division 1 football, and the exceptions don't make the rule.  

Was LSU in their "rightful place" until ty got a once in a Heisman Trophy " QB?.

Yes, they were.

I realize you post idiotic things often just to get attention but why?

Trolling brings me joy - what can I say?  You don't seem to mind when Trump does it.  

UT is where they are now because of some almost criminal decisions made by UT leadership starting with the firing of Fulmer forced by idiotic fans and a weak AD.

The reality of the Tennessee's temporary, over-rated period of so-called "elite" football in the 90's was even catching up to the man who was arguably most responsible for it - the man who bought into the fallacy of his own legend.  Mr. Phillip Edward Fulmer.  It was time for him to move on.  Unlike Rick Barnes - there was to be no second act.  His time was past.  

For the record, I'm in favor of granting Pruitt a mulligan for this year.  Next year he's going to need to win at least 7 regular season games to keep his job, and I'm not even sure that'll be enough (depends on how he loses games).  I'm pulling for him.

Was their elite status only temporary when they  enjoyed  parts of the 30's, 40's 50's ,60's,70's, 80's and 90's and 2000's also a fluke?
The period between 2010 and now is the only decade of mediocrity dating back to the 30's
Sometime I wonder if you even attempt to be credible.
Are you so desperate for attention you try to look like a fool?

It doesn't make any difference if he was flapping his elbows like a chicken trying to fly all Lineman hold they don't block. They grab a hand full of jersey calling it blocking.  It's only called occasionally seldom ever on the likes of OSU and Alabama.  But sure as hell will be if those two are behind it will be called on their opponents to kill a drive.
If everyone is thinking alike then somebody isn't thinking.

Like I said in a post above:

"I think that you can blame the rules committee on you first point. They allowed the offensive line to use hands when they block. THERE IS HOLDING ON ALMOST EVERY PLAY TO SOME EXTENT."

and you don't think that schools other than tOSU or Bama don't "teach" their players to hold and/or how to hold without getting caught?  They all do it!

 

UT yeah!
