same ole, same ole from Phil today.It's time for a new coach. He talks about staying the course and that sounds like a conservative approach to me. Nothing has changed and won't change until we have a new coach.

It's all talk with Fulmer....It's to buy himself time and try to keep the fans "hanging on"! Same ole crap for 4-5 years now! It's amazing how he always says that stuff once the tough games (which they always lose) are behind him! He simply can't out-coach many in the SEC. He knows it, everyone knows it. The SEC type of play has passed Fulmer by!

I knew it ! I knew Coach Fulmer would get it all fixed this week. Look for a win this weekend on the way to 10-2 and a great bowl. I'm gonna send a check to the UT AD today ear marked for my tickets to a New Year's Day Bowl ! Let's do this !

Are you kidding, a better football team? The Volunteers just let a team score 59 points on them. No where to go but up. Its time for this clapping, ever the optimist coach to go. Fire Phil Fulmer!

Chavis as the coach would be great, let's reward the "mastermind" who held Florida to only 59 points. Without him things might have gotten ugly. Look outside the program for coaches like Norm Chow, Greg Schiano, Bob Stoops etc.

He's just saying what he thinks everyone wants to hear. We all know they are going to be the same old football team come Saturday. I am disgusted with this program.

Kudos to Phil! He usually doesn't get "it" fixed and go back to basics and fundamentals until AFTER our annual loss to Alabama.....so, he is proactive this year eh?

As a moderator of a popular message board I can say that Phil Fulmer has lost to Bama twice and tied them once. Where you get the "annual loss to Alabama" I don't know. Clearly you know nuthin'!!

Yeah and your post screams bullshat on those facts or lack of !

Why can't you just tell the truth and post that you meant "our annual loss to Florida" ? I'll tell you why...cos ya cain't admit you made a mistake or don't have a clue what yer speakin' to. "our...loss" you've never played a down of football in your life if ya ask me.

You cannot even post an acruate post much less be a moderator.

Skunkin' another punk is how I just rolled over you.

You are an insecure idiot...I can tell. Constantly having to let people know you are a moderator....wooowooowooooo! How much do you get paid for that job?

IF we see a glibness (is that spelled right?) in
da coach could it be he knows something we don't?

As in...I am GOING TO RETIRE AND I COULD CARE LESS!

Just a thought?

As for running the table only the head dude at
Sports Talk 990 thinks we have a chance at that.

I am NOT going Saturday because if I wanta see
UT get beat I want to watch a BIG SEC team do it!
