TV Notes and More on UT!

Whatís going on in the booth these days? Have you listened to Theisman rhymes with Heisman and Tony C along with Mike ĎHey Babyí T? That is an awful combination. No chemistry, no timing, no nothing. Poor Tony C sounds like a lost dog and Theisman rhymes with Heisman doesnít help matters. Itís almost like Theisman rhymes with Heisman feels threatened by the guy. It isnít like Theisman rhymes with Heisman is going to be asked to take the wonderlik once again. I would love to see that! Since this is pre-season, one of those guys needs to be cut and now!

Speaking of perplexing broadcasting decisions, congrats to former Vol Charles Davis. He has been named Fox Sports color analyst for the Fiesta Bowl and the BCS title game. Donít get me wrong, heís a great guy, a former Vol from the í85 team and all that. But the poor fellow is lame in the booth. He has no pop. I call it right down the middle. Sorry.

Speaking of sorry. It sucks how you canít enjoy college football anymore. Now, itís all about the salaries, the cheating, the off-field stuff, ,the fact that a prominent booster has been showing up at UT much more lately. Whatever happened to the game being enough to satisfy. It seems the Vols are even trying to play the angle that theyíre being disrespected coming into the game. Even though, they are favored by 2 points? How can you be disrespected and favored in a game?

And our fan base is acting like they are preparing for a funeral Saturday instead of a football game. So what if UT isnít mighty anymore? That doesnít mean we canít look forward to/pine for the season opener. Sometimes I wonder if the National Title didnít take some starch out of our fan base.

I feel stronger now than I ever have about Ramar Smith not getting into school anytime soon. Look for some word to leak out sooner or later regarding something to do with his test. That will be the big hurdle. Canít elaborate much more than that at this time. The shame of it is that Pear and staff worked really hard on the kid and have been rejected in the 11th hour. I guess that UT hoops.
