Vol fans want Kiffin back... desperation at its finest... pathetic.


Gundy turned down $42 million over 6 years.

Don't think that all Vol fans want that **** Kiffin back. I certainly don't. And, I don't think that he is being considered by those who are controlling the process. (The Haslams and other powerful boosters... Peyton...)

It's an embarrassing situation for those of us who love the University and the State of Tennessee.

Now they are after Brohm from Purdue. I really don't know why anyone would walk into the mess that appears to be Tennessee currently.

Not sure Gatorland is much better these days. Two amazing programs that cannot get out of their own way. And that is coming from a Jets fan!!!

Bunch of good games. My personal interest has peaked though. I'll still watch all these games and the bowls, but I love when all 130 teams are playing. I would just as much like to watch Utah State play Air Force as I would any conference title game.

You are jumping ahead to playoff teams? No matter who it is, I hope that only 1 team per conference is awarded a spot. As I have always believed, the conference championship should be a prerequisite for a national championship opportunity.

So looking at your 4 Andy, what happened to the ACC Champ? Are you excluding them?

I think TCU has a shot to beat OU Saturday. I'm not counting Gary Patterson out and relying upon OU's D is always tricky.

I'll just offer where I rank the top 10 currently (I included 11 so nobody thought I forgot about Ohio State):

1. Clemson 11-1 7 wins vs bowl teams, best wins vs 10-2 Auburn 14-6 plus at 9-3 VT and at 9-3 LV...Loss at 4-8 Syracuse 24-27
*note Clemson more well rounded team with a high quality defense*
2. Oklahoma 11-1 7 wins vs bowl teams, best win at 10-2 Ohio St 31-16 plus home vs 10-2 TCU and at 9-3 Okla St...Loss home vs 7-5 ISU 31-38

3. Auburn 10-2 5 wins vs bowl teams, best wins home vs 11-1 Georgia 40-17, home vs 11-1 Alabama 26-14...Loses at 11-1 Clemson 6-14 and at 9-3 LSU 23-27

4. Wisconsin 12-0 4 wins vs bowl teams, best win home vs 9-3 FAU 31-14, home vs 7-5 Iowa 38-14, home vs 8-4 Michigan 24-10

5. Georgia 11-1 6 wins vs bowl teams, best win at 9-3 Notre Dame 20-19...Loss at 10-2 Auburn 17-40.

6. Alabama 11-1 - 5 wins vs bowl teams, best win home vs 9-3 LSU 24-10, home vs 9-3 Fresno 41-10...Loss at 10-2 Auburn 14-26

7. UCF 12-0 6 wins vs bowl teams, best win home vs 11-1 Memphis 40-13, home vs 9-2 USF 49-42.

8. Miami 11-1 5 wins vs bowl teams, best win home vs 9-3 VT 28-10, home vs 9-3 Notre Dame 41-8...Loss at 5-7 Pitt 14-24

9. USC 10-2 7 wins vs bowl teams, best win home vs 9-3 Stanford 42-24....Loses at 9-3 Washington St 27-30, at 9-3 Notre Dame 14-49

10. TCU 10-2 6 wins vs bowl teams, best win at 9-3 Oklahoma State 44-31...Loses at 7-5 ISU 7-14, at 11-1 Oklahoma 20-38

11. Ohio State 10-2 4 wins vs bowl teams, best win home vs 10-2 Penn State 39-38...Loses home vs 11-1 Oklahoma 16-31, at 7-5 Iowa 21-55

I don't think TCU has a prayer against Oklahoma. The Sooners are REALLY good. Perhaps national champs.

I would love for a Big Ten team to win it but I don't see Wisconsin (they did not have a difficult schedule) knocking off Ohio St and I doubt the Bucks will get in anyway. That blowout against Iowa has to hurt them.

I have heard some kudos for USC. That would be interesting.

If all four of the top teams win this weekend it is a moot point anyway regarding the playoff.

hi Scott

yes i for some reason think clemson will lose and both Bama and Georgia will get in as Georgia beats Auburn. Auburn laid it all out against Bama especially emotionally and i think their star was injured as well so i think Dawgs will beat them.

I will take Georgia as well to beat Auburn and win the SEC.

I would think the ACC Champ gets in, but in your scenario it isn't impossible they shut out Miami, but Miami as 1 loss ACC Champ would be hard for the committee to leave out. Then it is down to Big Ten, Big Xll or PAC 12 Champ for 2 other spots...unless they give one conference two teams and they've already showed us that nonconference champs can get in (Ohio St last year). If UCF goes 12-0 after Saturday throw their name into the ring before anyone considers two teams from same league.

Yes, Oklahoma is HOT.

I just can't trust their D. WVU with backup QB making first career start drove them into the RZ first 3 drives racking up over 200y on those opening possessions, but came away with just 10 pts (either thanks to the OU D clamping down, or the lack of QB experience out of the 'eers). Then since WV D couldn't offer any resistance to OU O the game was essentially over at halftime, but OU D still allowed WVU O to walk down field for back-to-back TDs to start the 3rd.

OU did a number on TCU the first time around, but that is the exception. TCU isn't overly threatening like most Big Xll teams are, but even, hell Kansas St had their way with the Sooner D.

I'm not going to sell Patterson short in this game. I would not bet TCU to win, but might consider getting over a TD with them and count on them to be more competitive this time around.

I feel bad what the good people of Tennessee are going through. On the other hand, those people who threw temper tantrums Sunday I have no compassion for.

I think Brohm has a very very high ceiling. That would've been a strong hire. The big concern would've been that he would leave anywhere for Louisville.

But did he back out over negotiations or it becoming public or was it not as far along as some of those press people said? At this point, in just about any area, how can you believe any speculation even the most trusted sources report on anything? So much has been proving to be BS more and more.

Doren? Butch Jones staying might've been better.

I forget who the latest name is.

Tee Martin will be there if you want him, but he has never lead a program as a head coach and about 2 months ago USC fans were ready to fire him.

Right now I am seeing Oklahoma -7.5. I can buy a half point so I might take OU -7. I am really high on them.

In a lesser game, the MAC Championship Game, I like Akron getting more than three TDs. I know Toledo is good for that conference and they have a good program but that seems like a lot. On the other hand, it could be a sucker bet as in, are they begging you to take the points???

On a side note, I kind of feel bad for those kids. Even as a metro Detroiter, how would you like your reward for a successful season be a trip to downtown Detroit?

So apparently Brohm turned down the Tennessee job in hopes of getting the Louisville gig, which Bobby Petrino has (again). So from what I read, if Brohm goes to Louisville, Petrino could take the Tennessee job.

College football coaching is like a soap opera.

Totally get your opinion on OU, it is probably the smarter bet.

I too like Akron. 3 games ago they suspended their Sr QB Thomas Woodson. Woodson had struggled this year with new receivers and Zips #1 RB got hurt in Sept as well. Woodson is not a runner. So the O was really underwhelming. When Woodson got suspended they inserted Fr Kato Nelson and while raw and erratic, he immediately brought playmaking ability to the team that they had not had. So from that standpoint this Toledo-Akron rematch has a chance to much more competitive than the earlier 48-21 Toledo win.

And just when you didn't think it could get any more bizarre. The University of Tennessee has FIRED Athletic Director John Currie.

Saw rumors today of Mike Leach. Not sure Leach will ever take a program to the top. Competitive, yes. National or conference title level, probably not.

At least he'd be entertaining.

Baylor had their way with the OU defense.

I don't think TCU has the offense to stick with the Sooners though.

True to your last point. Not sure why anyone would touch that knucklehead though. Maybe if they need the media exposure?

They seem pretty good at getting media exposure lately without Leach....

Another big $ day yesterday four big wins and a push. Actually could have "in-betweened" the Ohio State - Wisky game. Took the Badgers +7 early and then the number dropped to Buckeyes -4. I thought that that would mean Barrett either wouldn't play or be very limited. He actually played very well, credit to him. I liked Wisconsin well enough that I didn't lay any of it off onto OSU. Have a feeling the local sports accountant took a beating on that one.

Likely gets the Buckeyes in, although Clemson will immediately cancel their check. Was really hoping Wisconsin would win and prevent both Saban & Meyer from being involved in the playoff.

Hope so Neb, it'll still take a while to turn things but I think he'll have the focus and ability to do it. Comes down to how well he does getting the talented recruits. I'm optimistic.
