    There’s actually a possibility Fulmer could fire Pruitt and name himself the interim head coach? Is that the doomsday scenario for Tennessee?
     
  2. As long as Fulmer is the AD there is always the chance of him canning whomever the HC is and naming himself the interim HC

    It’s hindsight but I feel Schiano and Leach would have done better than this.

    Has UTK’s defense at least been really good under Pruitt?

    I think I posted this last year when there was some discussion about Petersen/Haden but probably relevant and worth posting again now:

    “a) Kevin Sumlin refused to interview for the job without an offer. Smart money says he wanted a dollar amount to bounce off A&M to get a raise. USC wasn't going for it. He got an extension anyways and never had a face to face meeting with USC.
    b) Chris Peterson interviewed for the job twice with Pat Haden. The spin that he turned USC down after the fact was for Washington's boosters. If he turned down USC for the Washington job, USC would have not paid to get Sark out of his contract with Washington. They also paid to get Justin Wilcox, if you recall. Peterson's second interview with Haden was thought to come with terms and an official job offer from USC. That was the inside word coming from Boise. However, Haden brought Mark Jackson and Steve Lopes with him to the second meeting. Haden was iffy about Peterson from the jump. This is where the whole "he doesn't get SC" thing came from. Once Jackson got on the scene, it was over. He was lobbying for Sark from the start, so the drinking and incidences (there were several) which took place when he was an assistant at USC got rationalized and glossed over. Normally, those unanswered questions would warrant some trepidation, but Sark had an administrator at USC to smooth it over. Plus, being a good time Charlie is part of "getting USC" from what I understand.
    c) In each coaching search, a couple of bigger boosters contacted Pete Carroll about coming back. In each case, those boosters felt maybe Pete would come back based on his love for USC. Haden even went up to San Francisco to meet with Pete on the behest of a booster before he hired Clay Helton. In each case Pete had no interest in returning. He took that meeting out of respect for USC.”

    Our freshman RB has 1 less reception than our NFL caliber receiver. 9-3 might be generous.

    The floor is 8-4, MSU and Maryland are not that good, and I’m not buying Wisconsin yet. CMU and USF are awful.

    But Vols fans are thrilled with Pruitt and that’s who they wanted...after 50 other coaches turned them down of course

    2001 Miami team should be higher. They would smash that '05 Texas team.

    The California State Assembly on Monday overwhelmingly passed a bill that would allow college athletes to more easily make money off their own name, image and likeness, beginning Jan. 1, 2023.

    The vote -- initially posted as 66-0, but later shown as 72-0 with 7 not voting -- all but assures that the measure will go to Gov. Gavin Newsom (D).

    Because the bill was amended after it had passed the State Senate, it will have to return there for a concurrence vote that could come as early as Tuesday, according to the office of Sen. Nancy Skinner, the bill's sponsor. However, the Senate approved its version of the bill by a 31-5 margin, and the bill’s basic intent remains unchanged.

    If the legislation reaches Newsom’s desk, he will have 30 days to sign it or veto it. If he takes no action, the bill becomes law.

    Although an NCAA panel is studying potential changes in the association’s policies regarding athletes’ names, images and likenesses, this sets up the prospect of a conflict between the NCAA’s amateurism rules and the laws of a state that has more than 20 Division I schools, including four members of the Pac-12 Conference

    Hearing the “none were interested” part of this was completely made up.

    What’s going on with Brett?
     
  20. That team is #2 at worst. Them and the ‘04 USC squad would wreck the other 8 teams.
     
  21. Pretty much.. that Miami team is basically the template for these current bama teams and while bama has had stacked teams top end doesn’t match that ‘01 Miami squad

    Then gotta throw ‘05 Texas in there.. not sure which of these bama squads you go with, maybe 2 of em make it.. gotta have one of those Tebow UF squads with Percy harvin and the rest of the goons.. one of these Clemson teams makes it, maybe 2

    It's hard to know what to do with these teams before the modern era ( post NCAA v. Board of Regents of the University of Oklahoma) but 95 Nebraska certainly has an argument to being considered the GOAT.

    4 W's against top 10 teams, and they didn't win a game that year by less than 14 points.

    Personally my modern era top 5 would be

    1. 95 Nebraska
    2. 01 Miami
    3. 04 SC
    4. 18 Clemson
    5. 08 UF

    That ‘05 Texas team wasn’t that good man. They literally had one player and he happened to be a super Saiyan.

    His knee (and Reggie’s) was also down. But whatever.

    If we’re putting ‘05 Texas in the top 10, why not ‘02 tO$U? I’m also lol’ing at 2018 Clemson being there in the top 10. Bama and Notre Dame may have been the only good teams they played all year.

  25. Didn’t that 05 Texas team have a crap ton of pros on it?

    I mean the end could easily be skewing things, but thought that roster was filled with pros like the others mentioned where even not the greatest coaching could hold them back
