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.

It's gotta be that damn orange color they wear. 

People here in Tennessee go into a daze when they see it. 

Recruits come in and get mesmerized by the orange uniforms and Butch Jones' buzzcut.

I have no idea about their protocol, but they said he exhibited to signs of concussion symptoms until he was disoriented and came out of the game in the 3rd quarter.

That's what drives me crazy. They allow guys to bump and push and kick and take you down with no call, but then they'll call the slightest tap of a hand-check. It's so freakin' inconsistent to the point where I question what a foul even is these days.

I certainly didn't like it (especially on replay), but I'm not willing to say Harrison Barnes went up with the intent to hurt Love with his elbow. I do think they should've whistled the play dead when he didn't get up, though.
