chance of bowl: 13.6%
I know this is all over the place, but seeing Mike Edwards and Nu'Keese Richardson among the two arrested for armed robbery, I'm so glad they didn't choose us. I think we were in the top-two for Edwards and the top-five for New Keys. Thank god they went elsewhere.
More verbal diarrhea from a school that seems to have an endless supply!
I guess Pearl doesn't want Kiffin to be known as the one dumb@ss on the block...
Peyton Manning was interviewed on NPR this morning with Eli and Archie to plug the children's book they wrote together. The host asked Peyton why he decided against going to Ole Miss after his father played there.
Peyton's answer paraphrased:
Oh, I don't know. I almost went to Ole Miss; I was ready to go there. My problem was that you had to just choose one school. I would've loved to go to Ole Miss for a couple of years, then go to the University of Michigan for a couple of years, then go to Tennessee.
Maybe a Heisman would've been behind Door No. 2, Peyton.
I don't know how many people went and read the blog post by Clay Travis that Brian posted beneath the Youtube 97' Highlights. Judging by some of the comments on there I say some of you might have read it.
Well I am here to give you the chance to exploit this UT homer on his own radio show. His show here in Tennessee begins at 7pm Cen. or 8pm est. time. It can be heard on 1045thezone.com. More importantly, if any of you would love to join me in calling out this man on his own show, with some of his Berry's Sophomore year was better than Woodson's Heisman year crap, or even more Manning to Woodson that year crap, please feel free to join me. The numbers to call in are....

Here also is the link to his page on the website with his e-mail..
Have at him boys, we need all the Woodson and Michigan support we can get in this Orange prison jumpsuit state. When they ask what you want to talk to Clay about, just say Eric Berry and Heisman, you are a lock to get through. Mention Woodson in the same breath with Heisman, Berry or Manning, you WILL be hung up on. They don't like to be wrong here.
EDIT: I apologize gentlemen, it looks like his worthless show is only on Tuesday nights from 7-9pm Cen. time. At least fill his e-mail box up with FACTS, and next Tuesday I will let him have it, still feel free to join me then if you like.
Tennessee leading WR Austin Rogers is now done for the year. Good thing Kiffin stole Nu'Keese Richardson, or he'd be screwed.
While I loathe all things Lane Kiffin, this at least raised an eyebrow (maybe a mono-brow!!).
The Tennessean reported that Evan Berry, brother of current player Eric Berry, has committed to UT for the 2013 football class. One, this doesn't surprise me due to his brother. Two, I didn't think you could commit that early (guess you can, just obviously can't sign a LOI). Three, I pray football will not start looking like basketball recruiting where you are insanely far out with recruits. Even projecting into the next year is crazy enough, but I understand the reason due to juniors attending your camps.
I also understand Brian's note today on the recruiting fatigue since everything is RECRUITING!! SHINY!! SHINY!! RECRUITING!! just due to an offseason that is seemingly endless. I guess that is why this stuck me as a bad thing.
