The loss to an inferior, podunct, wannabe SEC team like South Carolina tonight is unacceptable. Tennessee should NEVER lose to the Gamecocks in football for any reason EVER.
Alas, it was like the nightmare of 92 only in our stadium...our home field...our turf! How dare Tennessee let South Carolina come in and beat us! How dare this coaching staff allow a team with so much talent and potential to squander it all and make me wonder--will we even make a bowl game? How dare a team that started in the top five now drop out of the top 25 with this embarassment of a loss! This is unacceptable.
Phil Fulmer--remember how you got this job. Johnny Majors had a team with talent and potential that was squandered and he left the door open for you. Now, 13 years later, you have begun to emulate the mistakes that cost Majors his job. I am no yet calling for your head but I do call for some firing or reorganizing be done--namely Randy Sanders. And I also must say we need to maybe just maybe emphasize in drills in practice how to hold onto the ball inside the ten and get a damn touchdown for a change instead of turning it over and losing the damn game.
I am sure some of you will say I'm angry and upset in the wake of a loss. Well, I am. But I've stood by this team and I will do so. But there are some huge things wrong here and someone is going to have to be fired. My vote is for Randy Sanders. Sooner rather than later.
