Oh it’s disgustingly enjoyable.  I’m not sure that Schiano would’ve done anything better but them chasing him away looks even more stupid now.   And that’s really saying something. 

The only thing I wish is that everything that’s happening to Tennessee could just happen to Alabama.

I’d love to be able to see what Clay is posting but he blocked me for telling him what a piece of garbage he was for trying to ruin Schiano’ reputation and career by insinuating that he in some way enabled Sandusky because he didn’t want him as a coach. By the way Tennessee fans are so delusional that they deny that Clay Travis had anything to do with Schiano getting screwed over and when you call them out on it they always justify it by saying Well Ryan Day didn’t hire Schiano  so I guess it was the right thing to do.” And then they’ll deny that Pruitt was like their twelfth option because no one wanted the job after that whole debacle. Vols fans are getting exactly what they deserve. Fuck’em

So you're saying Clay Travis = Blu.Fan?  He said about the same thing.  I say about because he also included Larry Johnson.

Horrible, abysmal, embarrassing hires at head coach is what happened. Miami most recently selected a guy who was a production assistant at ESPN before deciding he wanted to coach football, and before him... Richt, Golden, Shannon, Coker.  FSU hired a guy who doesn't know it's oppressively humid in Florida... despite being from Florida. And Tennessee had to hire their tenth choice after being turned down by everyone else with a pulse and reneging on Schiano. Bad hires destroy programs FAST. FSU, just five years ago, was playing for the national title, and right now that team is a bigger disaster than any P5 program in America. Miami hasn't made a good hire since Dennis Erickson... twenty-five years ago. Mark Richt was their best effort, and he's far from a home run hire. Tennessee's last six coaches -- Pruitt, Hoke (interim lol), Jones, Chaney (interim), Dooley, Kiffin -- are losers one and all.

Thanks Kmp. Great history lesson. Didn't know that about the Miami coach.

They all ran off decent head coaches in search of greener pastures.

UT fired Fulmer and have been trash almost the entire time since. They got tired of being 9-3. Now they'll go 3-9.

FSU chased off Bobby Bowden, who was clearly aging, then got Jimbo, and he bolted for A&M.

Thug-U lost to somebody in 2003 because of an excellent pass interference call and never got over it.

Ignorance isn't bliss for the rest of us.

Dogshit OL and QB development. You can't win in college football with godawful OLs and rotating clown shows at QB.Plus what Kmp said about bad coaching hires. What's funny is that Mike Leach loves Miami/S.Fla.-he lived in Key West for a year between T-Tech and Wazzu, but the Canes wouldn't give him the time of day.

Kirk started the campaign and even mentioned tOSU by name as one of the teams LSU should jump. Folks will realize this playoff how ESPN has direct influence on how the teams are ranked by voicing things like its fact. Then lazy voters and committee members take what they are hearing as gospel. The push for 2 will be strong.

All you're going to hear on national radio this week is how this all but guarantees the SEC will have two teams in the CFP.

HS
DuckBuck's picture

If the SEC manages to get two in again, or God forbid three, then the B1G, Big 12, and PAC-12 need to say to hell with it and form their own playoff via Fox Sports. This has become ludicrous to the point of disgusting.

HS
Zonabuck's picture

Actually, the narrative last week was that the SEC had three of the four top teams in the country, and that was before LSU’s win against Texas. The point of “the committee” was to remove the bias of the early season rankings, wait until mid October to release polls so teams had a decent body of work to evaluate, and remove the “win over a Top 10 team” that is highly ranked in preseason, but ends up 7-5. As soon as that move was made, ESPN invented their Football Power Index, with no publicized formulas, but somehow pushes every SEC team to the top. It’s ridiculous.

Its not that far fetched.. The PAC 12 is GARBAGE.. Oklahoma loses to Texas and the B10 beats up on each other and you got Clemson and the SEC basically..

The advantage the SEC has, because of Georgia, is both divisions have a top 5 team..  That's what allows them to have more than one team in the mix.  LSU goes 11-1 and loses to Bama or vice versa and Georgia runs the table and then loses SEC champ game to Bama or LSU... and they could all be in the mix..

Until the B10 and ACC get more balance in the divisions there's no upside to winning the Championship. You can't move the needle beating Northwestern.. 

Go Bucks!

HS
Sunny Buck's picture

This is why I wanted Texas to beat LSU. Joe Burrow might possibly come back to haunt us. ESPN will try to justify a third SEC team, even with a loss, due to the strength of their conference. We beat each other up, therefore the playoff should be an SEC tournament plus Clemson. Get ready for it. We are going to hear it all season.

“And so for my guys to be out there and being welcomed and to be a part of it, the defending national champs, and to act in the way they act, that to me was probably the most surreal part of it is the program and the culture that Dabo Swinney has created. And for my guys to be a part of it, being out there in warmups and kind of being in their own element, that was cool.

“And then as the game went on, my kids obviously are going to redshirt, but as the game went on, the game got out of reach and Tye ended up getting in. I think the last series he actually got a chance to play, so that was also special for him. But yeah, overall, just a great night because it was a great night for them. And you know being a parent, when it’s a great night for your kids, it’s a great night for you as well.” --- Kirk Herbstreit

Hate to say it but the SEC possibly has three legit playoff teams. LSU proved tonight that they belong in the conversation. Joey Ball Game carved up a decent Texas D. They are tough. Georgia and Alabama are loaded. Of course Alabama sustained so tough injuries so if there was a year that LSU and Georgia both could beat them it would be this year.

Can anybody fathom if Texas a&m had beat Clemson? We would legit be hearing 4 sec teams. Auburn, Bama, Georgia, Florida, LSU, Tx a&m

In all honesty, I'm not sure how anyone considers Auburn a legitimate playoff team. They seem to have an alright Defense, but that Offense doesn't look too good to me with their new QB.

Man seems they all just want the program burned to the ground.

You know I sent them my resume for the AD position a couple years ago.

First I'd tell clay travis to go to hell, seconds I would tell the haslams to go to hell. Third school colors would be changed from that bright ass orange to a dark orange and black.

Would make a whole revamp on the jerseys, and go with a metallic black helmet with the orange stripe. Next would be hiring a head coach, I would bring in an up and coming coach, someone young who can relate to teenagers. I would tell them flat out yes this is a rebuild and you will have latitude but by year 4 results need to be seen.

Then once the coach is hired have a press conference where I very clearly lay out that thing is going to take time to rebuild, we need patience and results will follow.

I could get tennessee out of the sad state they are in

Tenn is another reminder that a few people in power of something big like Tenn football can ruin everything. You've got a few high profile people that refuse to just let Fulmer move on and it's effected every decision they have made for a decade plus. They fired Fulmer in 2008 and some folks just never wanted him away from the program and he's had his hand in everything since then. He hung around casting a shadow and then in 2017 they hired him as AD. Lots of reports he's been on the field trying to help coach players this year. That just isn't good for any program.  You think it would be good for our program and Coach Day of Gene showed up at practice with "tips".. You create this false narrative that if he were allowed to coach again Bama and LSU and Georgia couldn't compete with Tenn... it's like no one remembers his last 4 years he had 1 bowl win and was 29 wins 21 losses...

osunut2's picture

The difference between teams who want to win and those who expect to win can't be understated. Under Fulmer, Tennessee always seemed to find ways to win, but after his firing, that program has completely forgotten how to win. After a decade-plus of futility and inventing new ways to lose, that isn't something you can fix overnight. This is a major culture issue that takes years to address, and you certainly can't do it by hiring new coaching staffs on the cheap.

On another note, what in the world is Jeremy Pruitt selling blue-chip recruits?? You would have to be an absolute fool to pass on an Alabama, Georgia, Ohio State, etc offer to come to Tennessee in this era, especially if your end goal is development and an NFL future. They've gotten some good looking recruits the last two years, and it doesn't make any sense.
