Tennessee fans are the best. Living down here I have the absolute joy of living among them each and every day. It's a gift that keeps on giving.

The thing I'm very interested in this year is how Tennessee responds when they actually have expectations placed on them. Pretty much everyone is picking them to win the SEC East. They have a lot of pre-season hype, but will it last? Are they 'for real'?

As much crap as their fans talk when their team's not good, I don't know if I can live in a world with Tennessee fans if their team is winning.

I wouldn't mind adding Wade. I think David Griffin (and his partner LBJ) has earned my trust in putting a team together, so I'll let him/them work out the details of who stays or goes.

As far as the $$$, I guess it all depends on what he's willing to take and how "disrespected" he feels by the Heat.

It wouldn't hurt my feelings to piss off Pat Riley. LeBron already did that by leaving South Beach and 'coming home'.

It's gotta be Peppers, right? I mean he's easily the most amazing player that college football has ever seen in the history of the sport and will be playing like 13 positions this year.

You know he's gonna be up for every single major college award including Coach of the Year.

I honestly didn't think Durant was the kinda guy who would jump to a team like the Warriors.He seemed more to me like a guy who would want to come back to OKC and beat GS next year. I can't blame him for wanting to win, though, and if he thinks they give him the best chance, well, alrighty then.

I'm not saying this automatically guarantees them anything, though. Sure they're stacked, but anything could happen: injuries, chemistry issues, bubonic plague, you never know.

Regardless, Cleveland won a chip, so I'm good.

Best of luck to Mond, but who is he kidding with that 'tradition of excellence' line?

Let's face it, Sumlin was flying high but now he's only riding on what little fumes remain from the Manziel era in College Station.

I cried tonight. I didn't know how it would feel or how I would take it if the Cavs actually pulled out the win tonight. But as time expired I shouted 'YES!' and then cried like a baby.

I don't cry often. I cried when my grandparents died. When I got married. When my kids were born. And tonight. 

It was special.

Your list is okay, but you might consider Eli Manning, Alex Smith, Jay Cutler, Philip Rivers, Matt Ryan, Drew Brees, or Tony Romo in there, or not...either way, welcome to the wonderful world of forum posting.

It's much like other schools, they pride themselves on academics when doing so serves its purpose for them. 

It's a good school though. I've got several friends (and my in-laws) who are UT grads, but for anyone to say the athletic department is all about academics is a joke

I don't know if I consider Dobbs a PP. He had over 600 yards rushing last year. I will say this though, his passing accuracy is an issue. They have capable receivers, but it remains to be seen if Dobbs can put it all together.

With all the hype surrounding Tennessee this year, Jones better hope he delivers. They are the presumptive SEC East champs and are being put in the playoff discussion. After last year when they lost several games they should've won with bad coaching decisions, turnovers and a myriad of other issues, the natives are growing restless.
