RISING STAR NICK STEPHENS? ARE YOU KIDDING ME THIS KID SUCKED AT THE qb POSITION. I WISH HIM WELL, BUT THIS kid was not a player that had enough talent to compete in any of the BCS conf. in college football. CPF, CLK, and CDD all realized that he didn't have what it takes, Bryce Brown was a pre- madonna and never was a true vol, he was weak and never lived up to the hype coming out of high school and will never be a big name in college or pro football again, he had his 15 min of fame. Aaron Douglas however was a loss to the team, but if he wasn't committed to being a vol then screw him and shame on him for quiting the team., a true coward is what he is.
Looks like the chat times free press is trying to get people to turn on our new coach by trying to dig up any dirt they can find because their mad about cry baby colemans treatment. And anybody who watches pro football knows that the raiders go through coaches like babies go through diapers because al davis doesn't let his coaches coach their team their way, big al wants to call all the shots, He fired mike shanahan who went on to win super bowles and whipped the raiders all most every time he coached against them. So don't judge clk on what happened in oakland.Thank god he wouldn't be al davis's puppet and now will coach the vols back to greatness.
If coleman really thought he was so much better than crompton and stephens he would have stuck around until the fall,and more than likely would have taken the starting QB position, but he is another egomaniac, another T.O type who probably would divide the locker room blaming everybody but himself when they lose a game. I wasn,t to impressed with the way he looked in the few games he played last year, and he sure as heck isn't the caliber of player to lead the vols back to competing at a national level. Lane kiffen is cleaning out the kind of players that have embarrassed the team these last few seasons. As far as colemans departure from the team haunting the vols in the future, not likely because clk is going to bring in a real QB with big time talant. B.J , cry baby, coleman never would have got the job done , period. If some of you so called vol fans are going to bad mouth our new coch for making tough decisions to try and turn around a mediocre football team that was left to him by Fulmer, find yourself another team, because the volnation doesn,t need your fair weather fan attitude.
