Tennesseans got their nickname for one reason and that was for volunteering for a fight. Throughout the history of the United States, Tennessee has set the standard for going to battle and we have won more than we have lost.
I have been a VOL fan for over 40 years and win/lose/or draw I have ALWAYS been proud of them but now (because our "talent" level is low) the administration chooses to bail out on a "fight" which we are probably going to lose.
Granted the games should have never been scheduled but once they were, they should be honored.
I am a DD fan and believe he will turn the program around as Johnny Majors did after Bill Battle but this is not the right way to do it.
Winning a battle comes from the heart and not from superior resources. Superior resources make an average situation better but greatness comes from the heart (desire).
Looks like Mike Hamilton's next step is Washington.
