God loves you and me. There isn't anything I can do to make Him love me more than He already does; and, thankfully, there isn't anything I can do to make Him love me any less than He already does.

The Cross combines mercy and justice. God reaching out to us. Unique among faiths. Follow Christ.

Accountability - Bruuuce Coaches 'em up

Gotta take my medicine.  Immediately after the guns and marijuana fall-out about a month ago, I projected that our beloved Vols would enter the SEC tourney 19-9 (8-8 in SEC play) and that the...

BJ Coleman Doing OK with the Mocs

With Crompton having a great day against UGA, I idly wondered how the QB-Who-THrew-A-Tantrum-And-Abandoned-UT is doing. Turns out D2 is the perfect place for him. 9 TD's and 1 INT on a team that is 4-1.

My preseason idiot picks aren't so stupid after Georgia

As we approach our open date before the dread Tide roll in, now is a good time to reflect on our preseason prognostications to see how we are doing.

4. You gotta give Lane Kiffin some credit: Tennessee went into The Swamp and had a great game plan. They stuck with running the ball in order to shorten the game and limit Florida’s possessions. Defensive coordinator Monte Kiffin used formations that literally forced quarterback Tebow to run. So Tebow ran the ball 24 times. Tennessee played hard and physical and never backed down from the No. 1 team in the nation. If I’m a Tennessee fan I’m optimistic about what this team will do in the long term. But I am also pessimistic in the short term because Jonathan Crompton is simply not the answer at quarterback, especially in big games. The senior had a couple of really bad throws that turned into interceptions at crunch time. If Crompton just makes a play or two, the Gators might have been sweating at the end.

http://blogs.ajc.com/barnhart-college-football/2009/09/21/whos-no-1-i-have-no-idea/ Tony Barnhart is another guy who was not a big fan of Lane Kiffin or the Vols. (For the doubters, go back through his blog. Yikes!)

Tennessee head coach Lane Kiffin: We rarely give out helmet stickers to somebody on the losing end. But Kiffin had his Vols ready to play in some of the toughest circumstances imaginable at the Swamp, and they outplayed Florida for much of the game. If the Vols play with that kind of pride and that kind of toughness the rest of the way, they will win a lot of games this season.

Lane Kiffin and Tennessee had a remarkable first class in what is normally a transition year. The Vols lose 3-Star wide receiver James Green, but managed to bring in the No. 1 running back in the nation, Brown, and tied USC with 13 five star and four star players.

These guys are having a blast. Training camp is hard work - but the lead up to Bowling Night was way more interesting than I have seen reported anywhere else. Apparently the shirt ripping and other craziness doesn't stop after you get on campus

It's not a positive view, but we are glad to look at all perspectives. Wish the interviewer had done more than capture the responses. The "reason why" behind this Raider's opinions would have been very interesting.
