    Yeah he was very complimentary. And My comments don’t show good sportsmanship. I guess I was being pretty tough on Heupel.

    He couldn’t very well come out there and say “ Georgia is a great team but My team stinks”. I’ll give him This, he’s done better than any of their HCs since Fulmer left. And he’s recruiting pretty well. I’m Not gonna wish him tons of success as after all him and his Vols are rivals.

    But he did take a program that was in utter chaos when he got it and made it much better. To me other than our Dawgs of course, the rising program in the SEC East as it’s defined right now is Mizzou. Drinkwitz has that program trending up.

    2024 is sure gonna be an interesting year with TX and OK joining the conference. Still I think our Dawgs will be the King of the hill even then !!

    Kirby built a rock solid foundation and has just kept building better and better on that platform. Just look how many young guys got So many real game snaps This year !! Then add in having thus far the number one recruiting class in the country !! Go Dawgs !!

    Yeah, I get it, stand up for your team but the reality is that without that first blown play by Georgia, it’s 38-3 and barely 200 yards in offense, The reason you didn’t “have your best game” is because you had Dawgs on you all night!!

    I think hearing "Rocky Top" too many times has scrambled his brain. Good for him he only heard it once, after the first play. LOL

    Right On Henddawg, talent alone will not win championships, especially when the focus is on one or two skill players...ie: QB/RB or Receiver.Every player must buy into the culture of "Better Never Rest" and TEAM first so that when the inevitable injury bug hits, your 2's, 3's and 4's are just as elite as your starters so that the culture of "Next Man Up" is a reality......regrettably, for the Vols, Coach Hoople, albeit an OK coach and a hell of a QB, does not meet the requirement

    Heupel wanting to make the alumumni believe they just played a "bad game" and that the difference between the two programs really isn't as far apart as it is. Coach speak.

    They might not had played their best game. I don't think it would have mattered. The Dawgs talent is a lot better than the Vols. Gary D was surely cheering for the Vols. He has to be the most Bias commentator on TV. He will sink to new lows Dec. 2nd.
