It is painfully obvious, at this point, that Dooley is not going to be the coach here in the future. The die has been cast. Hart only has two choices. 1) Fire Dooley 2) Try to keep Dooley and...


Longing for Coacho Ocho

There is not one of us that was happy with the way the 2008 season played out, but I am willing to bet that 90% of us would take those 8 win seasons right about now. Don't take this the wrong...


Too much for a checking line player

Earlier this week Dirk posted a link to an article taking Barry Trotz to task for some comments he made concerning Paul Gaustad. Well according to the folks over at Hockey Prospectus, Ryan could...

Stu Grimson on the new OHL rule surrounding fighting

An interesting take from a former enforcer here. I am not sure that I agree with all of his logic, but it is certainly an interesting read. I will be interested to see what the fellow OTF members think.


Tonight I don't care if we lost or not

I thought this was the year that we would get it done, but it wasn't to be . And you know what? I don't really care. I know this sounds like a crazy man talking, but it is the absolute truth. Just...

Best Plays: Exciting or Depressing

First of all I want to thank the guys here for this series. It has brought back some truly exciting memories for me. I grew up watching Tennessee football with my father, and it was a great era to...


Moving on from Game 4

First of all I just wanted to say thanks. Thanks to Dirk, and the others running this crazy show, for giving me a place to rejoice, vent, argue, discuss, laugh, and enjoy all things Preds. This a...


What was gained, or lost, in Game 4

A good discussion here, so I'm moving it to the front page - Dirk I have been going back and forth with several of you regarding Friday night's game. I have read and reread most of the posts...


OTF Meetup for Game 2

Thanks to Dirk's hookup, saved 400 dollars on 5 tickets by the way, I was wondering if anyone was interested in a OTF meetup either before, at, or after the game? Leave any...


Really?!?!? Really?!?!

Sources say that Cuonzo is ready to pull a Lane Kiffin if asked. Has it really come to this with Tennessee athletics??? Is Illinois really that great of a job? I understand he is from outside...
