The War that is known as the 3rd Saturday in October

Posted by Thomas the Terrible on October 24, 2008

 

Most experts say that fans take sports and cheering for their favorite teams to seriously. In most cases I tend to agree with them. However those experts have never experienced the Third Saturday in October either. They do not know the joy or exhilaration of seeing the Tennessee Volunteers or the Alabama Crimson Tide take the field right before kickoff. Those experts have never felt the excitement in the air that is buzzing around when the teams line up.

This game is much more than a simple competition between two border state rival schools. This game is about passion, heart, pride & respect! And nothing means more than to these two teams than respect.

For Phil Fulmer this year’s game is about his legacy and his coaching career at Tennessee. For Nick Saban this year’s game is about a possible BCS birth and the chance to play for the national championship.

It’s hard to say who has the most to lose in this game. If Tennessee loses then Fulmer is most likely out as the head coach & if Saban loses then people will still question the hire by Alabama and people will point to this lose with an “I told ya so” attitude.

It is also equally hard to say who has the most to gain by a victory. If Tennessee wins then Fulmer will most likely keep his job as the head coach whether he wins out or not. A win would also propel the VOLS into a brighter national light. The number seven recruiting class that Fulmer is currently building could jump to number one. If Alabama wins then Saban brings Alabama to an 8-0 record and a possible number one ranking. The road to the BCS National Championship becomes ever so closer. And of course Saban could reel in yet another top rated recruiting class.

For the fans this game is an oxymoron of painful orgasmic joy. They live and die on every play, every called timeout & every injury. Both fan bases are smart enough to know that one can throw out the win/loss records for these two schools when they play. That fact alone makes rivalry games like this so intense.

Throw out what the experts say about sports and the seriousness of being a fan. They have never witnessed college gridiron gladiators battle each other like these two teams. If you look into the fans eyes on this holy day you will see both love & hate. Love for their favorite team and hate for the opposing team.

The Sunday following the game (or Monday for some fans) as the players and fans alike are recovering from their injuries or walking on air, the realization should set in that this is simply a game. However the fact that their memory will either joyously or painfully remind them of the final score and then reality actually sets in.

This is not a game. This is war that is fought only once a year and victors of that year’s war savor every moment of it for many times over in their heads. I’ve always said a good Alabama team is a beaten Alabama team.

Ladies and Gentlemen this is not a game: THIS IS THE BATTLE KNOWN AS THE THIRD SATURDAY IN OCTOBER!!!!!!

GO VOLS! Beat Bama!!!

God Must Hate West Virginia

Posted by Thomas the Terrible on November 26, 2007


Riding the short bus to glory!!!

 

God must either hate West Virginia or he shows them love by making them suffer though the fact that Missouri jumped them to become the #1 in the latest BCS poll. That benevolent father, what a prankster.

Tennessee’s Win Over USC Proves Why Fulmer & Company Need to be Fired.

Posted by Thomas the Terrible on October 28, 2007

This game was a game of two halves, so this posting will be a posting of two halves as well.First Half:

We pwned USC. Erik Ainge made that vaunted USC pass defense his personal bitch. USC made stupid error after stupid error that reminded everyone there and in TV land why USC is well USC. Eric Berry nearly had his second TD of the year off a fumble recovery and run back, but Chris “I Have the Oder of Ass Coming Off Me” Smelly violently grabbed him by the face mask and forced him out of bounds at the 2 yard line. You can tell by his frustration that Smelly hasn’t been laid in awhile. Berry also had an interception in the first half as well & boom it’s 21-0 going into half time. God Spurrier is seen crying in the locker room. The offensive line was playing well not allowing pressure on Ainge, and the defensive line was holding their own against the run and getting pressure on the quarterback.

Second Half:

Somehow God Spurrier has manged to drug all our players in the locker room and had lookalikes in Tennessee uniforms take the field, of course our coaching staff is to stupid to notice a small thing like that. The offense only gained 70 yards in the second half & the defense had more gaping holes in it than a hooker convention in Times Square. USC dominated both sides of the ball and rattled off 24 unanswered points. Blake “I bet he had a Mullet in High School” Mitchell was 31-of-45 for 288 yards, and he ran for a TD and threw for another.

Somehow Tennessee forced the game into overtime. The Vols only saving grace was the fact that South Carolina kicker Ryan Succop lived up to the suck part of his name and had a quick journey from hero to goat and missed the field goal that would have sent the game into it’s second overtime. USC fans were tasting that sweet victory only to have it snatched from them. It was ugly but a win is a win.


Yes, yes you do Phil. Pics courtesy of Outer MonVOLia 

The reality is the Tennessee coaching staff doesn’t have that killer instinct. The defense came out playing not to lose and well as the offense. In the end USC dominated the stats with 501 yards of offense to Tennessee’s 317, and this was a home game! USC also had Tennessee beat in passing & rushing yards as well as time of procession. I believe the game ball should be given to the USC offense because if it wasn’t for those 4 turnovers this would have been the second straight game that Tennessee was blown off the field. This win might have shut up the sheep that follow Coach Fulmer, but the smart Tennessee fan should know this team was very lucky to come out with a win.

So I profess on this day 10/28/07.
