The Tennessee/Georgia grade book

Where do I begin? Let’s start with awful and move to hopeless and finish with WTF.

With that being said let’s briefly go another route. I had the pleasure of the watching the game with my best friend who is a diehard Georgia fan. He pointed out 3 very questionable calls that resulted in 45 yards of penalties. The no contact pass interference, the helmet to helmet shot and wasn’t a helmet to helmet shot and late hit out of bounds that really should have been a no call. Even the announcers were surprised at those calls.

However that doesn’t excuse the nonexistent running game and the fact the defense had one of the worse games of the season.

This team is as offensively challenged as Brittany Spears is crazy. My question is what is the real problem? Is it Fulmer or Clawson? Fulmer still backs Clawson for the moment.

“The plans are good,” Fulmer said. “They’re sound. We just don’t execute like we need to. All of us need to do better.”

“He’s got the head phones on and he’s certainly aware of everything we’re doing,” Clawson said. “He certainly lets me call the game. I’m responsible for the offense.”

Well I can certainly rest easier at night knowing that. *Sarcasm*

The fight and fire does seem to continue to burn inside Fulmer however for how much longer is anyone’s guess. He knows what is coming within this coming week.

“Everybody in the world is going to talk about me,” Fulmer said. “They’re going to talk about our staff. They’re going to talk about (the players) and what kind of backbone we’ve got.

“Look ’em in the eye and say, ‘I’m not quitting.’ Who’s going to stand up? They got to go on campus, out and about. They better be able to look them in the eye and say, ‘Hey, I did my best.’ That’s the staff, and that’s me and that’s everybody else.”

I hate to say this but sometimes ones best just isn’t good enough anymore. It’s not that Phil hasn’t done a lot of great things for UT but let’s face it, when he continues to run the same plays year after year, the opposing coaches get a lot of tape and figure out the best way counter it. See Urban Meyer, Mark Richt and Nick Saban. Any coach that looks at those schemes against UT can mount a good game plan against the offense and it is currently and has been happening a lot in the past 4 years.

Bottom line this team lacks creativity. With that being said let’s review the grades. Read the rest of this entry »

Random musings 10/07/08

Posted by Thomas the Terrible on October 7, 2008

Click to enlarge you'll love it

Jim Harbaugh gets fined by the PAC-10 for telling the truth about their suck ass refs.

Even though Kimbo Slice got his ass kicked in 14 seconds by Seth Petruzelli, Slice still got paid $500.000 and Petruzelli only received $50,000.

Way to go Red Sox! I’m currently pointing and laughing at Lisa Horne who is the worlds biggest Angels fan. J/K Lisa!

Chase Daniel and Warren Buffet are apparently BFFs 4-ever!! This is the most shocking thing to come out of the Missouri-Nebraska game other then the fact that they hung over “half a hundred” on the Cornhuskers before halftime.

Some Cubs fans have erected a shrine to futility outside Wrigley Field.

One letter, short and to the point, stood out. “Dear Cubs,” it began. “Thanks for nothing.” Among the torn-up Cubs posters and T-shirts, another note read: “Dear Cubs 2008, It really hurts knowing I’ll never see you again. We had some great times.”

The shrine, at Waveland and Sheffield, was started by Murphy’s Bleachers workers upset at the Cubs getting drummed out of the playoffs. It grew as passersby added messages and trinkets.

I guess they shouldn’t have printed those World Series tickets up huh?

The Tennessee kicking game is back to full strength because Colquitt returns against Georgia. I hope he is sober and STAYS sober.

The lovely Penny Lane tells the world why it’s great to be a VOL!! This is one of the best posts I’ve read in a llllllooooooonnnnnnnnnggggggg time.

I wonder if Rich “Dirty Sanchez” Rodriguez will start booing his own team.

The 3rd Saturday in Blogtober has the 2008 version of Rocky Top posted.

Heaven Help Britton Colquitt

Posted by Thomas the Terrible on July 8, 2008

The last time I wrote about Britton Colquitt people said I was harsh. I still stand by what I wrote today however Colquitt is claiming to have learned his lesson with some help of course.

The DUI arrest that occurred in February cost him his football scholarship, a five-game suspension and was an embarrassment to his family and to the University of Tennessee.

Britton says he will change a thing.

“God’s teaching me a big lesson, what to prioritize in my life, and I’ve leaned a lot from this,” Colquitt said Monday after pleading guilty to DUI in Sessions Court.

“I wouldn’t go back and change it if I could. It’s made me somebody I need to be in the future.”

Not to sound too cynical here but nothing helps people find God like the criminal justice system. I just can’t stand people claiming they have found God, or were given a message from God, or anything religious without something to back up that claim.

Way too many times, people have said that God gave them a lesson, saved them, and changed them, etc…..then a year later something else happens.

I would rather Colquitt (or anyone else) go 10 years without an incident…..then point to the period of time where they were changed by the influence of God.

I just would like some action before claims of being touched by God. There are too many people giving glory to god…..without giving glory to god if that makes any sense.

I’m also tired of people referring to arrests as “mistakes”.

At the same time I recognize that sometimes you have to hit the bottom before you can start your way back up and yes there’s a real possibility he is sincere in his words at least I hope he is.

The charge was amended to first-offense DUI and Colquitt received the standard penalty:

A suspended sentence of 11 months, 29 days; suspended driver’s license for one year; $350 fine and court costs; 24-hour detention and 24-hour litter pickup; attend DUI school.

“I’ve been through a lot because of myself, the actions I’ve made and the decisions I’ve made,” Colquitt said. “I just wanted to get it over with and take my punishment and not try to fight it.

“Just learn from my mistakes, move on and make me a better person.”

Factoring in a series of alcohol-related incidents in September 2003 when Colquitt was an incoming freshman, Coach Fulmer revoked Colquitt’s scholarship and suspended him the first five games of the 2008 season.

He will suit up starting with the Oct. 11 game at Georgia.

“It’s tough,” Colquitt said. “You realize what you’re missing.

“I know when the season comes around and I’m having to watch five games, I’ll really appreciate those last seven. Just being able to take the field will be a lot more of an honor. I took it for granted before.”

“I kind of got lost again in my ways, in the things I was focusing on in my life,” he said, “and it led me back into kind of the same thing.”

Colquitt requested Monday to report Friday morning to serve the remainder of his 24-hour detention. He is credited with 10 hours following his arrest.

He returns to Sessions Court on Aug. 11 to check progress on his probation.

I still feel that he should not be allowed on the team. Too many young men sacrifice so much of their lives to be a part of such a proud tradition. He does not deserve to wear the uniform.
