We were having a discussion on the show yesterday when Dr Sean Sinclair pointed out that Tennessee finished 12th in combined in men's and women's all sports in the SEC this year. Then somebody said we were anywhere from 12th to 14th in Men's sports overall in this league. It turns out UT's men are dead last for the just completed school year. That's an embarrassment. This is absolutely unacceptable on EVERY possible level. Dr Sinclair said that while Florida has population advantages over Tennessee, few other schools in the league enjoy an upper hand on Tennessee when it comes to offerings. This community is simply too great with too many people that care about UT sports for this to continue. In fact, if you look at attendance figures the # of fannies in the seats far exceeds accomplishments on the field. In fact the disparity between the two is absurd. It's time to start winning around here. This fan base remains the most under served in all of college sports.


Here's more on the debacle of a sports year on The Hill. Link

On the recitation of the General's Maxims, Ward puts forth how he thinks UT is going to play this.

'Here is how it works...10 minutes before kickoff...before "Down the Field" gets played. a killer Montage gets played of Vols clips from days gone by...ends with pic of Neyland himself...then goes to live shot of locker room...we get about 45 seconds of Butch at his pre game fired up apex...leading to the team reciting the maxims...and the crowd does it with the team.

Go Vols
Ward'



Rick Barnes said on the Caravan stop in Nashville last night that a neutral site game in the music city annually is a possibility. I vote YES on this! I loved when Bruce Pearl went out of his way to play in Nashville. In fact, I'm an advocate of playing somewhere near Memphis if possible. Be the state school. With hoops you have enough dates to elongate your footprint. Why not? Go for it.


I'm sorry. But the thought of that is really enough to make me want to sleep. I don't see the crowd reciting the maxims under any circumstances. It's just not going to happen.

Murriano had a great idea with regards to the execution of the maxims that I wanted to share with you. Take a page from Bama's playbook and do something with some footage of General Neyland to get the crowd fired up. Surely Tennessee has something in the archives of the General urging on his guys or the boosters or students. Or perhaps there's a piece of training footage that exists of him from his military days. Muriano's point is that Tennessee needs to come up with a better way to honor the General and keep his memory alive. If done right, Muriano's idea could have serious legs.

Finally with Letterman's final show history, I want to say that it was a pleasure having him as a part of my youth. I'll never forget rewatching through the magic of VHS his groundbreaking brilliant yet moronic stuff through high school and college. Those were great days. Larry 'Bud' Melman will never be forgotten by this living fan. Viva Terry Garr!


Oh and Bud Melman was the freakin' man. Book it. Link
