Dear Mike Hamilton, if Kiffin wants some, tell him to bring it...

There is a lot of nonsense being spewed right now about the USC/Tennessee match-up that should have been next year. When did our fanbase become spineless? Tennessee is the school that scheduled Miami as its homecoming game in 2002. We back down from no one. Until now. Thanks Hammy. Here is what I'm hearing.

Our schedule is already too brutal next year.

The SEC schedule is always tough. I'm hearing how powerhouses like Cincinatti and North Carolina are on the schedule next year. People will find out this year that Cincy is nothing without Brian Kelly. North Carolina may be okay and it is at their place, but really, what have they done under Butch Davis? They don't scare me. So we are afraid to play USC because we are already playing a fringe top 25 team and mighty Cincy, who lost the only reason they were any good to Notre Dame.

I'm also hearing that the schedule is set and can't be worked around.

So we can't tell North Texas, thanks but no thanks? Yeah, we would have to buy them out of the contract. I think the potential reward is worth much more than the buyout would be.

I'm hearing that Tennessee is not going to be very good next year and USC is still going to be good.

If Dooley is a good coach, and that's a big IF, Tennessee will be greatly improved next year. The biggest improvement always comes from year one to year two. Look at the research I did in a previous blog for the facts. Tennessee will have another recruiting class under its belt and recievers, running backs, and a quarterback in their second year starting. Not to mention an offensive line who will be much improved. Tennessee is still fairly young on defense as well.

USC will be down ten scholarships in their first year of direct sanctions. They also have Lane as their coach. I keep hearing about how great of a coach he was. May I remind everyone of such wonderful coaching jobs as the UCLA, Auburn, Ole Miss, and Virginia Tech games. His two greatest games, Florida and Alabama were also filled with bad coaching. He played not to get blown out against Florida instead of trying to win and he completely mis-managed the end of the Alabama game. Make no mistake, he is a young Les Miles.

Tennessee would have just as good of a chance to win that game as USC would. Quit being a bunch of beat up pansies Vol fans. We are better than that. WE ARE TENNESSEE! Things are bad now, but keep in mind, we are still the most consistent program since Neyland took over in 1926. Quit being brianwashed by the doom and gloomers and be proud to be a Vol. Have some pride. I am very disappointed in the cowardly talk I've been hearing from Vol fans. Even if we do lose, that isn't the point. I'm sure next year there will still be plenty of players who would like a chance to stick it to Lane. GO VOLS!!!!!
