Jomo —

Yes, Paschall knows his pigskin.

No way Dools is part of the SMU plan, is there? E-gad what a disaster that would be.

9er —

Corps is another. Stupid English.

And Grandparents Day, by the way we read it, is the second Sunday in September, but again we may have mis-read that too. We did go to Auburn after all. (Me fail English? Un-possible.)

Stewwie —

Let me re-read the story.

I may have misread it — I thought he was giving his opinion rather than reading someone else's report.

And we agree with you about the too-PC stuff.

Got a meeting — will be back.

Whose trick is singular and how big is that pony?

Buschleaguer —

We were quite pleased with our "possession receiver" line yesterday. Very nice with taking hits in the offseason, too. Well-played indeed.

With Tiger out of the picture, not sure out of the candidates out there our dear Watson could have picked that would help. When the Euros are talking about how they have to try to not be overconfident, well, that does not look good for the ol' U.S. of A.

OG —

Interesting point about real talent.

Would Carol Burnett or Don Knotts get a shot in today's appearance-first world? Hard to know considering the attractive folks who now are comedy gurus, too.

Think of it this way: Burnett was the aces of her time. Fall down funny on so many levels with talent everywhere. Here counterpart today is Tina Fey, who love her or loathe her, is really funny, and much better looking than Burnett.

Or Beyonce and Gladys Knight maybe?

9er —

UT could be in for a tight one (we think 17 is a really good number, though), and so could your Cats.


It's here. Much thanks.

We're working on your mailbag response.

Jomo —

We appreciate your passion in each regard but how are you going to say UTC was a huge underdog going to Central Michigan and then UT will start lining up all these excuses about Oklahoma?

You are following the same path you criticize Johnny Vols Fans for.

That said, Oklahoma is one of the frontrunners for the Football Four, so of course they will be a three-TD favorite.

Stewwie —

American tennis is sad.

We certainly are split between Brees and Rodgers and wrestled back in forth and left Brees there because we think he'll throw for 5,000-plus but Rodgers' team will have better year and more times than not, better season = MVP, better stats = offensive player of the year. So it goes. And Shady McCoy is a fine pick too.

And we concur and are counting it as a loss, because of the same logic, if it had switched the other way, it works in reverse. So it goes.

OG —

Dude, even Whitney lip-synced. And when you are talking about someone who moves as much — and as well — as Beyonce, well, we get it.

That said, we think JT is likely far left. And while she is a supremely talented song writer, Taylor Swift is a C-singer at best. No doubt she moves records, but so did the New Kids on The Block (as you well remember, OG).

And as much as we love King George (and we do), he was brutal in Pure Country as an actor; Beyonce was money in the Austin Powers movie.

Man you guys are killing it.

We are the radio as we speak — and love the spunk.


Love the idea of the loss of draft picks.

Jomo, UTC gets a mulligan in SoCon play; this is the lone chance to make an at-large statement. And it's the lone chance to make a season-opening impressive in a big year for Russ. In fact, we can make an argument that this is as big a game as UTC has had in a while.

And yes, JMC, there is going to be a ton of Sam I Am coverage in the DMN tomorrow.

As for specific questions, well, hello mailbag.

War 5-at-10 readers.

9er —

UK did have a nice debut and the talent is noticeably improved.

But the gap between UT-Martin and Utah State is wide.

JP —

Great call. The SEC Network did have a great debut all things considered, but Tebow — and some of the other newbies — struggled. That said, Greg McIlroy is going to be really good at this TV thing.

Jomo —

Fair point about the YpC.

But that was still an impressive showing.

Buscher —

We believe that counts as two roles.

UTC is getting a check for the trip. We'd expected the bus ride to Knoxville brings about $500K. This would be closer to $100K.


Keep believin' dude.

OG —

We don't feel the ill will against the Mocs, but that's from our seat.

Winds can blow differently across the landscape.
