    ?????? They completely dominated Penn St.

    They sure looked more impressive than Boise St. did. How many major conference schools has Boise St. blown out? Oh, none. The only time they beat bigger conference schools, it comes down to last minute heroics.

    No UT didn't win at Oregon last year, we lost to UCLA 15-19. Eddy your argument about Penn St. being in a rebuilding mode might have some legs to stand on if they weren't ranked 18th in the nation and picked to at finish in at least the top 5 of their conference. There is no doubt that Tennessee is in a rebuilding mode. Their head coach of all of one year decides to jump ship in the final stretch of recruiting. A new head coach is picked only 5 days later and has to not only salvage the recruiting class, but also make all the necessary appearances that is a required of a new coach while all at the same time trying to put together some semblance of a coaching staff. A new scheme, playbook is given to the players, many of which thought the last thing they would be doing in the spring is having to learn a mostly brand new playbook. Luckily we had some consistency on the offensive side of the ball due to Jim Chaney staying on board. Penn state has what a new QB and some new players and you want to call that a rebuilding year? Please, player turnover happens all the time in college football but that doesn't mean their in a "rebuilding year". I don't think the likes of Florida, Texas, Oregon, etc. would say they're in a rebuilding year just because they have a new QB and a few other new players scattered around. Quit getting your panties in a wad.

    Yeah we only dominated Penn St the whole game without our best defensive player and oh yeah our heisman trophy winner. Penn St didn't give up a 100 yard rusher in the last 18 games or something around there and Richardson went over 100 in the first half. We also have 9 new starters on defense and have yet to give up a TD. Wait till Ingram and Dareus comes back and our defense gains expereince.

    Oh yeah then next year we're going to have a way better defense and our back up QB, McCarron, is better than McElroy. Let's not forget about the three headed monster at RB and Julio probably coming back next year. We're going to be at the top for a very long time. We don't rebuild we reload. Also the SEC is still the best till someone else can actually beat us in the big game.

    Stop losing to 1-AA teams. There's only one way to stop that.. Stop playing them!

    We must all stop being passionate about our teams. It is bad form especially when they lose.
    If your team loses just claim to be a fan of the winning team and for sure don't cheer if your teams wins as it might offend someone.
    Bottom line is one team will win and the other will lose in most cases.

    Go Vols a fan to the end.

    Ole Miss lost in a fluke game. Why does that even matter in the discussion?

    You come in here and talk about conference supremacy when your conference loses to something called a Jacksonville St. ROFL

    It was one game and Ole Miss is garbage this year. Who exactly do you go for? Also look at the top 25 and tell me how many SEC teams you see.
