As John Ward used to say, "It's FOOTBALL time in Tennessee!!" So who's gonna win it? Both pro & college. In college I think the usual suspects will challenge: Neb., OK, FSU, etc. TN appears strong this year provided we can find a running back. In NFL, I think it's clearly the Rams again in the NFC. On the AFC side I'm going with the Titans. Eddie George is healthy again & McNair became "Air" last year (finally). Look out for New England again, though. Any thoughts on how Spurrior will do with the Redskins?

My perdictions (spelling mistakes are as intended) are as follows: The University of Illinois Fighting Illini will go 12-0, out scoring their opponents by a 714 to 0 margin, and will win the national champions, naturally. The heisman trophy voting will be split evenly between members of the whole team. The Chambana Bears will take the NFL by storm. By midseason they will give them the championship trophy as all other teams cower in fear, and beg for mercy. That's about it.

R U the former "Fighting Illini" guy???? I'm in football withdrawal. Doc says if I don't see some pigskin soon, appendages will start falling off. UT WILL be in the Top 5 nationally. And Florida sucks (Gay-turdz that is). [:D]

Haha Tennessee and Illinois two teams that are intimately familiar with the team to watch...............[b]LSU[/b]. Tn get ready for another ride, and I really don't think we'll be seeing Illinois down south any more, Where we play real football.

The Tennessee Whiners! Yeh, right! Y'all know the champion team will come from Florida! UF We'll see??? FSU Speed Kills! Miami Bring it on, baby! UCF Finding their way USF Breakout year FAMU Division 1A finals! But I'll be rooting for Troy State University, as they are the opponent for like 9 different homecomings, this year! [shock] Go Trojans,,,,,,,, You got to love a team who's fight song is "Dixie" .... And man, do I hate that damned "Rocky Top" song. If Tennessee fans could read, they'd come up with a new song. But, I do like that flotilla, idea. That is cool! How much will Fulmer be crying about his players getting hit this year? [flame] Oh Yeh, GO BUCS! What do you think about the new divisions? No More Black and Blue Division!? That sucks. I liked playing Da Bears, the CheeseHeads, Vikes, and Lions! We'll miss that division, but now we get to play the Ain'ts, Atlanta, etc. Should be less injuries,and we'll show them what the "old" division was all about!

I wouldn't count him out! I remember his days coaching in the USFL here, and it was exciting! He plays WIDE-A$$ED open style football. He depends heavily on quarterback decision-making, though. I don't know if those type QB's are still in the game. Should be fun to watch. I wouldn't expect TOO much this year yet, but it wouldn't surprise me. I hope John Gruden can bring that type of excitement to our half-assed offense this year. If the defense stays where it was last year, and our offense actually moves the ball, the Bucs have a chance. If our defense plays 50 minutes, like usual, we will be mediocre again!

Tennessee and Florida have taken like 9 out of the last ten SEC titles. I know you guys are still ecstatic after all those years of being a bridesmaid, but the honeymoon is over, and now its time for LSU to return to obscurity. head-to-head Tennessee vs. LSU???? BWAAAAAAAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA Go Vols.

Legs - Sooners are a great team with great history, no doubt. last season had to be a REAL dissappointment for y'all. El foldo. Tennessee actually went as far - maybe farther - than expected last year. But Tennessee has GOT to produce this year. Anything less than going to the big dance and playing for a national title will be a lackluster year for Tennessee.

That's the problem. You (and LSU ) have no sense of history. So you won a couple of games. Big deal. Odds are, it was a fluke. Heck, Tennessee gave you teh SEC championship. PURE GIFT. You can crow about a gift if you want, but always remember who gave it to you. Bottom line - Tennessee looks for a return to being National Champs. LSU wonders what the view is like from up there. And realizes they prolly won't get to see it this year either. [}:D]

Yes, yes, yes, It's almost time for football again. I love college ball. It brings back memories from a time that I perceived (however untrue) as being simpler and innocent. Is anyone else disgusted with baseball?

Henderson was the ONLY Vol that showed up that game. Since he doesn't play BOTH O and D, there's only so much of him to spread around. There MUST be a "We Hate Tennessee" handbook out there that instructs its readers [b]"Whenever discussing football teams against a Vols fan, always attack Phil Fulmers weight. DO NOT, repeat, DO NOT, engage in any discussion about him being the winningest active NCAA coach."[/b] Y'all are SOOOO predictable.
And Casey, well he was on his back a lot. [rolleyes]

He was just a kid. And his O line was out on jury duty, apparently. I have no problem admitting such.

Feel free to despise us Vols. Those on the top usually do inspire that emotion in those who WISH to be at the top. I would describe my emotion NOT as "despising" but more .....oh....."sympathetic" to LSU and her fans. [}:D]
