The Mocs are playing Saturday? Wow, think I will go!
I think we have a 12 PM kickoff also because of getting on the ASN TV network.
Vol fans hate Kiffin because he jilted them after one season. They boarded the Lane Train only to find out he jumped onto the USC train headed out west.
I can't think of Kiffin without the bizzaro theatre that happened when Al Davis fired him. It bears watching sometime when you have the time. It reminded me of Humphrey Bogart on the stand during the trial in The Caine Mutiny.

Want to take the chance to remind everybody that the Chattanooga Mocs are playing at home this Saturday at noon. Tickets are quite reasonable. This column seems to be taking on a very SEC-centric tone so just wanted to make sure everybody knows their hometown team will be at home!
I submit for your viewing pleasure:
"Weird" Al Yankovic - Amish Paradise
Prediction on NBA....they will play a gazillon games, most of which the teams just go thru the motions until the last few minutes of the game then they try to win it. The Spurs will rest players periodically and writers will question if they should be allowed to. Kobe will score a bunch of points and the Lakers will suck. Carmelo Anthony will not the pass the ball, thus he will score alot and the Knicks will suck. Memphis will play the whole season but nobody will know it nor anybody on their team. Cleveland will be like the circus coming to town, at some point LBJ will sit out a game and some father will be interviewed about him bringing his son and that will be their only chance to see LBJ play. Chuck Barkely will make some outrageous comments on TNT. And come next June, Cleveland and San Antonio will be playing for the championship. So, why don't we just skip all this and let them play a best of 7 in November and call it a season?
JMC, my understanding is that if a SoCon game is not on ASN, it will be on the SoCon Digital Network, which is free.

One would hope they would be looking at what the academics are like, graduation rate, salary structure for those graduating from the schools they vist, the academic support....that is not just a poor reflection on UTK and students there, but nationwide.
Just wanted remind everybody their hometown team, the Mocs, not the Vols, are playing at home this weekend. Come out and watch them play, kickoff is at noon. Tickets are reasonable and available.....and you can still be home in time to watch Knoxville's hometown team play on tv.
I am not going to address any of your questions JG. I, we, are preparing for Texas A&M.
I said, we are preparing for Texas A&M.
With respect to Peyton Manning, I would say that we must remember QBs of today have more games in which to accumulate stats because they now play 16 games a season vs 14 in the old days. Plus the rules have been modified to promote passing over rushing. I would say that but I won't, because as I told you, we are preparing for Texas A&M.
I had the chance to meet and talk to Alcides Escobar when he played here for the Huntsville Stars. We had an aftergame bbq for the players and he was a very soft spoken very nice young man. Since both he and Lo Cain played here I am rooting for the Royals. Normally a National League fan, and still am, but this KC team seems to be a team of destiny, like the 91 Braves as you said.
