Let me start by saying I do hope we get Jon Gruden. I want that magical moment to happen. But I’m approaching it with a heavy amount of cynicism, hence my reluctance to jump on the band wagon.

However I doubt, sincerely it will happen.

That out of the way the mood around the fan base has been dark. From the seats on the outside looking in, its almost morose. It’s one of the few times I have been relieved that I do not live within the inner circle of the Tennessee state boundaries. I may be tempted to jump in to the river if I did.

So with no further adieu, here’s a list of 5 coaches whom most of the fan base has probably never heard of who I think would make a great hire by Dave Hart, but will never be hired. Unlike Gruden, there is no way in Hades they’ll ever be our coach. But a mhuire, it would be a bloody blast if they did!

Feel free to chortle, poke fun, groan, shake your head and just wonder “What the bloody Hades?!” in the comments as I play the fool. That’s what this thread and article is for to relieve some stress and get back to being what we are: Tennessee Volunteers!

I’ll be the first one to say I grew very impassioned at the end of last nights game. My reaction last night, as Chris justifiably pointed out, was over the top.

My reasonings I think are sound: Georgia did not defeat us last night, rather we beat ourselves.

Aristotle once wrote that it is the mark of a educated man to entertain a thought without accepting it.

So lets look past our passions, mine included, for a moment shall we?

I won’t be able to watch the game this weekend. I have tickets to the Northwest Arkansas LPGA Championship

Critter has taken a liking to golf so she gets priority, even over my rampant fandom

Long time readers know that I try to make video’s for every Tennessee game that I can

This year is no different. A big help in the work game from the fans at RockyTopTalk who gave suggestions for audio track!

With a Internet handle like mine you get to have a little creative licensing on how you title articles. Especially when the article pertains to ones predictions on players for the up coming season.

Totally apropos of nothing, and with little to no technical background, knowledge, formal data or engineering ability I decided to rattle off what I consider to be the Five players whom I think will be our Zephyr‘s, or players who will work deep in hostile territory, create plays, and otherwise be the sleeper agents of our 2011 Tennessee Volunteers line up.

So come on! Drink the Dool-Aid! Kick back! If you missed my first prediction you can check it out here. Grab a cold frosty  and join me as we embark upon the yellow brick road of fandom, as we take our second of five trips towards my 2011 breakout player predictions.

At the end of the year we can compare my totally inane, and completely without any rhyme or reason for picking these guys against the experts and we can all point and laugh at me together.

I wrote this in October of 2007 over at Techography. I’ve since posted it here for Archival reasons, and because the game is upon us once more. Enjoy! – BS

If you are a fan of Tennessee or Alabama football there are two rules to live by: Don”t get married on the
third Saturday in October, and try not to die — because in either case, the
preacher might not show. For the first
time since 1988 the Third Saturday in October
will not be
televised.

But What exactly is the 3rd Saturday in October? For those who don’t know, it’s the day that University
of Tennessee Volunteers plays against University of Alabama Crimson
Tide
. And it’s game that dates back to1928.

Kept this one short, Sweet and to the point!

GO VOLS!

BEAT GEORGIA!

How is that you say? Tennessee obviously has some military traditions. Their football team was once commanded by a General. The dragoon uniform worn by Tennessee regulars during the Mexican War is the current uniform worn by the color guard at UT Knoxville athletic events.

But how in the world does Georgia fit in to this equation?

(I wrote this October of Last year. Because I was working in Tennessee I got to attend the game. It was a sight to behold and a tromping unlike anything I had witnessed first hand before. What was originally supposed to have been a good game turned in to a 45 to 19 trouncing that was almost painful to watch. With Georgia barely squeezing out 240 yards the Volunteers overpowered them at 471 , 310 of which were passing as before our eyes we watched “Jonathon @!#$%^& Crompton” become “$%^&* Jonathon Crompton!?”. Enjoy!)

I got to Knoxville Friday around 18:00. Got checked in to my hotel and unpacked ready to rock and roll.

Being the glutton for punishment that I am I immediately headed for Cumberland.

The Cal Ecker Band was the live venue of the night and they rocked, absolutely rocked. I bet they played Rocky Top a half dozen time in the almost 8 hours I was in the club, with the entire room screaming the song at the tops of their lungs.

Best shirt of the night!

I partied out at The Tin Roof until about 15 till 3 am. I was pumped, tired, blitzed and psyched all at once. (I have since learned that there is a Tin Roof in Nashville, which means at some point I may have to check it out) I wandered back to my truck and drug my exhausted carcass in to my hotel room at about 03:30.

v00d3w hasn’t been posting as his usual self.

That is because via an act of selfless service he has been working behind the scenes a lot lately.

He has been perfecting a lil sumpin sumpin just for this week.

I won’t steal his thunder.

But I don’t intend to be singing a damn thing at the end of this week.

I’ve said I do not like LSU.

I said that they have a uncanny ability to snatch victory from us at the last second. That every time we are ahead they manage to show up and smack our hands out of the cookie jar.

Saturday was no different.

Who cares if we’ve lost 5 in a row to them?

Who cares if we don’t have Eric Berry anymore, the only player who could physically cause Tim Tebow to wet himself?

Who cares if we are in a rebuilding year?

It’s frickin Florida. The only team we hate almost as much as Ala-Damn-Bama. They are the antimatter for everything we stand for. They are like East Coast hippies.

They wear jorts. Sandles. Only thing missing is more tie dye shirts and patchulli.

So with that in mind, lets get our blood pumping. So what if there was a oil spill in that general vicinity a few months ago? I’m craving boiled gator!

GO VOLS!

…Of the University of Tennessee’s Pride of the Southland Band.

I’ve admitted before I was a marching band nerd.

Maybe its just me, but nothing spells college football to me quite like a Marching Band.

keep your hot dogs. Keep your tail gate. When I hear the drum cadence start,and the brass blare for me it is football time in Tennessee.

Ya’ll know I love my Vols.

You also know I love the fella’s over at Rocky Top Talk.

Well they recently sent out a quest for volunteers to give them a hand and you know I had to throw my name in that hat figuring “Hell, why not.”

And as Eric would say, rubberneckers let me tell you I was selected. I guess they figured they could not get a more Vol obsessed lunatic, even if he lives in another state. But whatever the reason I am honored.

Now I ain’t doing anything huge. I’m doing a very small thing over there. Just watching for leads for the main writers, but its still awesome just the same. These fella’s are the know-all’s of Knoxville insofar as I am concerned. The most calm, rational and straight forward reporting you get out of the area.

So a chance to work with them, even as tiny as what I’ll be doing, is very cool.

So keep yer eyes peeled over at RTT folks. I’ll be cross posting stuff here as I always do, but I’m happy to say they are letting me be part of the show.
