    I caught the end of the 3rd quarter to the end... the problem looked like a combination of the passing game not working - I don't think I saw a WR catch a single pass - and the Florida offense just having a field day.

    DD got exposed in the second half, again. Its not all his fault. WRs running free dropping balls that hit them in the numbers.

    Game was closer than the score as Tennessee did have the ball down by 7 mid 4Q - I mean it was a ballgame.
    that is my long way of saying I think the vols probably did about as well as I expected, but not as well as I hoped.

    Better pound the Zips - Go big State U.

    IMO ut was out coached. Florida has 3 close games at half and in all 3 comes out 2nd half and dominates. I thought this was just a fluke in the A&M game with a young QB. This seems to be UF's gameplan, stay in the game in the first half then adjust at half and come out second half and play ball. UT has no clue how to do this. Everyone wants to cry about UT run game but they had good yardage in the first half, then OC decides to totally scrap that and try pass after pass which resulted in 3 and out after 3 and out. This left UT's D gassed and UF ajusted well and cranked off big plays. I blame this one completly on UT coaching (and maybe Bray, sorry he was garbage the second half).

    Only coach that did well at UT was Big Sal, his D just got gassed.

    It is now Sunday.

    Dooley should be unemployed.

    I'm seriously over this guy. Why are UT fans the most complacent in the conference? It is like we have realized we will never be Alabama, LSU or Florida.

    I'm surrounded by Alabama and Auburn fans and they give their teams hell! They DEMAND championships. I guess living in Alabama has shown me how college fans are supposed to act. PASSION

    Hit up VolNation and say something negative about the program or Dooley. Those people act like Muslim extremist.
    I hate Dooley, I'm over the football program. BCS championship or bust. Anything less than that is a failure. Florida should NEVER win seven in a row against Tennessee.


    Drunk rant over. $%$##& Dooley and every useless fan who continues to support him. That program will not get another cent from me until they play for a championship. Paid thousands in tuition, thousands on tickets, merchandise and traveling. We as fans deserve better, we should demand better.

    As long as Dooley and his retarded ass orange pants are on the sidelines, I will not be in the stands.

    Dooley is not and has not produced a team that is anywhere close to what Tennessee fans have seen in the last 30 years.

    The team is weak on defense, not physical on offense and not mentally tough at all. Tennessee has always sent o-linemen, RBs(Foster) and plenty of defensive players to the nfl. That team even with the elite wrs and the good QB doesn't look like Tennessee.

    A career sub 500 record. 1-8 in his last 9 sec games? The only win over Vandy? That's unacceptable and with South Carolina-Georgia-Bama-Mizzou still on the scedule. This moron can't even beat Kentucky! Did Phil Fullmer ever lose to Kentucky?

    As for the passion UT fans have plenty. I wouldn't bash the fans at all.

    Had it not been for his dad who was a legendary coach at Georgia, won a national title there he would not have gotten this job.

    Yes he worked for Saben once at LSU but his record at La Tech was not up to par for the job. On another site i compared Urban Meyer's resume when he got hired at Florida to Dooley's. Meyer had great success at 2 schools, Bowling Green and Utah and took those prgrams to a much higher level. Dooley never did that with anybody!

    Charlie Strong the coach at Louisville should be #1 on Tennessee's list. They know him he coached against them as D-coordinator at Florida and he can recruit. They better jump on him fast though because he is an Arkansas native and that team will also be looking for a new coach.

    I really don't have a dog in the hunt, my daughter and my money go to UT (LOL) but other than that I am not a huge college fan and never have been. It is just where we get our pros. That being said I watched the game, UT's D kept getting beat by losing the edge, and giving up really easy huge chunks of yards. Is Dooley doing a good job? Like I said I don't really care but I do follow enough to know where the program was thanks to Kiffin. Dooley has built it back with good, not great recruiting classes. Are they close to beating BAMA or LSU or Georgia, probably not. My question for the fire everybody crowd is who would you realistically replace him with?

    Does Tyler Bray remind anyone of Ryan Mallett?
