That was the worst performance from these guys i have seen since last year. Five or six weeks to get ready for this and hadn't been to a bowl game in two years, that was disgraceful and he got a raise to boot. I don't want to hear about the guys they didn't have they should ahve been the best team on the field they just didn't play that way. They played down to their competetion. They got outplayed in every phase of the game. I am embarrassed. All this time to prepare and we get this, you would have thought that not being to bowl in two years would have been enough motivation. I think it's time to start rooting for a certain school from FLA.

Once again, overrated comes to mind. Total domination by an unranked team who takes UT to the woodshed. It could have been worse if the overturned calls stood as they should have. Penn State beat UT on speed and strength. Please, don't tell me how great Penn State is, as if that were the case, they'd have been ranked. They had no quality wins either (except for UT.) Seems odd Fulmer said he had a great, physical week of pratice and if that is the result, then UT really is bad! Well, let's see how much Hamilton raises the coaches pay for next year!!

Looked like a flashback to last season with the offense finding a way to lose in spite of the defense playing well enough to win.

I did not even have one sip of alcohol on New Year's Eve so I would not have a hangover and be ready to watch the Vols lay a whipping on Penn State. Man, I should have slugged down a case of beer last night. When a 116 year old coach, who is not even on the sidelines, beats you like a red-headed stepchild its time to take a long look in the mirror. At lease we have 9 months to forget about this horrible game!

I can't beleive with more then a month to prepare this is what we put on the field. They looked scared and intimidated. When will Tennessee learn to stop trying to tackel someone by bumping into them !!!!!!! I have seen this for years and it drives me INSANE !!!!!!

LMAO @ the VOLS and Failure Fulmer!
I think the time has come to finally move Neyland Stadium to ZIMBABWE, the whole area would make for a really nice water adventure park, or even a NASCAR racetrack.....Imagine that....a new Nascar track on the former grounds of the U.T. sports area....at least we know there would be a winner at the end of the day, and hopefully the trackside noise would end all the overly upscale condo developements on the fecal waste smelling river!

I HOPE SOMEONE TAPED THE CLIP AT THE END OF THE GAME --- WHEN THE BACK FROM PENN STATE TALKED ABOUT OUR TEAM --- HE REALLY QUESTIONED THEIR MANHOOD...IF THE GUYS SEE THE TAPE WILL THIS BE SOMETHING FOR MOTIVATION FOR NEXT YEAR?????????
I CERTAINLY HOPE WE HAVE RECRUITED SOME NEW LINEMEN FOR BOTH SIDES OF THE BALL....BASED UPON THE VERBAL COMMITTMENTS IT APPEARS WE MIGHT HAVE SOME NEW FACES FOR THE DEFENSIVE BACKFIELD...NEED SOME COVER GUYS....COACH FULMER SHOULD BE HANGING HIS HEAD...HIS BOWL RECORD STINKS!!!!!!!!!A BIG WIN MIGHT HAVE HELPED GET A COUPLE OF TOP RECRUITS FOR NEXT YEAR.....HOPE NEXT SEASON GETS BETTER!!!!!!! NOW WE CAN CHEER FOR BOTH OF OUR BASKETBALL TEAMS.... GO VOLS

Penn State took care of the ball and did all the little things right. It may have been the best defense the Vols saw all year. Lion's QB Morelli played one of the best games of his college career. Also, perhaps PSU had the edge in coaching.

It was a good game and big plays made the difference ... a they usually do.

I wouldn't blame Foster for their lost. The whole team played inconsistent. The whole team is responsible. They played poorly before the fumble occured!
