    Hopefully Jones will run a clean program with a minimum of criminals at UT but rule-breaking and lawlessness seem to be institutionally engrained in Knoxville at this point.

    Here's hoping...

    I'm doubtful UT will ever rise above middle of the pack in the SEC with Jones as HC. Just look at the utterly embarrassing nature of their coaching search...

    Is anyone willing to predict that Notre Dame will beat Bama? Will ND make a game of it?

    And if you're looking for the reasons I dislike UT so strongly, look no further.

    Their message boards were crowing about their most recent commit, who was a decommit from Vandy. He was Vandy's lowest rated commitment.

    I would like to thank the powers that be at Auburn and Tennessee for NOT seriously going after Charlie Strong. If he can recruit and coach like this at Louisville, I would hate to see what he could do in the SEC.

    Auburn made a better hire than Strong.

    I was at a New Years Eve party and one of the guys there was a Buckeye fan who you could tell was pulling against every team in the SEC. He basically said he didn't like the style of play in the SEC compared to the Big Ten, nevermind the fact the SEC has a pretty dominant streak of national championships.
    The SEC started it and everyone else jumped on board. I just don't get it. If your team is good enough, it can stand on its own credentials and not the idiotic chants at games.

    Re: SEC Football Discussion Thread

    Football in the South is a different beast. It's part of the fabric of Southern pride and tradition. It means more to Southern fans than football means to big ten fans....in many cases it's even inextricably conflated with family tradition. Take Bama football as an example. For a significant part of Bear's tenure, Bama football was one of the few bright spots and sources of pride in the difficult lives of struggling sand mountaineers.

    An irony is that for all of the buckeye hatred spewed about the SEC, buckeye nation doesn't seem to mind that their coach will always be thought of as an SEC coach and he is trying his best to recruit SEC players. Heck, they can't even claim the moral ground regarding NCAA compliance.

    Unprepared, undisciplined and upended, a huge embarrassment that is all on the head coach.

    I hope Strong sticks with Louisville for a few years, it'll be easier to get him when the times comes
    Go Gators!

    After last night I'd say there's nothing embarassing about pursuing Charlie Strong. I'd say that shows that they have good taste

    You really ought to get therapy for your hatred. Seriously, I was happy for Vandy and the season they had. If I had your attitude I'd be one miserable soul

    I think it will be a very close game. I believe Bama will win but it will be a fight. ND is going to take this disrespect being shown to them to heart. If Bama isn't fully ready to play they will lose.

    SEC in the bowl season is showing this was a down year for them. I thought it during the season and it's showing up in the post season. It didn't surprise me that UL beat UF. I thought UF was somewhat overrated all season. If Bridgewater was healthy I thought, at the least UL, would give them a tough game.
