What's wrong with the Vols?

Oct 3, 2008 | Posted by: roboblogger | Full story: The Tennessean

Starter Jonathan Crompton isn't seeing the field, makes crucial turnovers and appears anything but poised.

I have never in all my years that I can remember watching Tennessee football (and I am 56)seen a more unprepaired QB ever. Coach your west coast offense isn't working and that isn't Tennessee Football. We have 3 of the best running backs in the nation and you want to try and run west coast? what are you thinking. We have been known for smashing someone's teeth out just by running it down their throats. You sport the best offensive line in the SEC and your running game is crap. Back to basics coach put the new guy in Crompton is not on any page with his receivers and that is just plain lack of preperation. He's been there long enough to know the plays but he looks as if he is throwing to dead people. My wife who is an LSU fan (we live in Louisiana via military) watched the game last week and even she made up new words for our QB and his inability to get the ball to anyone but dead people. Wake up you need to win 5 of the last 7 games left to be played just to be bowl elgible, and the way we are playing and the schedule coming up that isn't going to happen unless a miracle happens. Defense is the only bright spot on our team, damn shame a program as storied as ours looks this shabby. I hang my flag outside of my house every year and people know it is football season. We have an LSU flag, American flag in the middle and Tennessee, people on the block walk by now and say sorry for your team maybe next year. PUT THE NEW QB IN IT DAMN SURE CAN'T HURT. Crompton has had his chance, he is clearly not ready and setting him down might wake him up, it happened with Ainge remember. Good luck for the rest of the season. GO VOLS

Tn. needs coaches who can teach the players to Tackle and to Block. They never have been able to do this . I thank it is time for new coach.

Where has Arian Foster been?? One of the best in the SEC and I haven't seen much of him. When did the coaching get so bad?? Maybe it was when one of our offensive coaches went to Oklahoma (hence having a winning season)and another went to Duke (also winning this year). What a joke!

Foster had a huge fumbling problem and has shown no heart or leadership.

There was a column in the Tennesseean newspaper about Coach Fulmer talking about making a QB change (from Crompton) a few weeks ago and calling on the seniors to step up and show some leadership.

A few feet away, Foster was laughing and joking and telling UT media relations officials he would only do interviews if the person interviewing him spoke pteradactil, then he started squawking out loud. People would try to ask him about the season and what the team needed to do and he just kept squawking and laughing.

His problem is he's only in it for himself and doesn't care a bit if the team wins or loses.

How bad does it have to get till someone says enough. I have heard that Arian Foster is out for himself, so let him!!! Do you blame him? He could have been the all-time leading rusher at UT if he was given the ball.And as far as a fumbling problem- South carolina scored 17 points from turn overs, Arian fumbled how many of those? Fulmer and staff are done,we need new leadership!!!!
