So, one game into the season and we're already hearing the cries to "Fire Fulmer."
Am I disappointed we lost the game Monday night? Yes.
Do I think Fulmer bears part of the blame as head coach? Yes.
Do I also think that the players also bear some of the blame? Yes.
Do I believe Fulmer should be fire? No.
And why not?
It's one game, people. We're one game into the season. We're putting in a new offensive system. Fulmer went outside the Tennessee coaching tree to get a new, young offensive mind and, unfortunately, there will be a hiccup or two along the way. I think we saw a big hiccup Monday night when we stopped running the ball after the big fumble in the third quarter.
And who exactly are we going to get that's going to be better, at this point? You're not going to have a huge pool of talent one game into the season to choose from.
The bad part is the Vols don't play Saturday, thus allowing this insane conversation to linger and fester for another week.
I do know one way to make it go away...dominated UAB and beat then turn around and beat the Gators. That will silence (most of) the critics...
