Down Low Delanie And The Only Quote That Matters on NFL Anthem Protests

“Down Low” Delanie Walker, as he’s called in some circles (he so pretty, isn’t he?), was catching more than balls this week following a smarmy interview he gave to a local reporter after the Tennessee Titans and Seattle Seahawks agreed to disrespect the country:

“Fans that don’t want to come to the game? OK, bye. If you feel we’re disrespecting you, don’t come to the game. You don’t have to,” Walker said. “No one’s telling you to come to the game. It’s your freedom of choice.”

Given all of the empty seats I’ve seen at the Titans game this year, clearly the Titans are aiming for a more selective audience. But following his dissing of the flag and the fans, now he’s catching some heat:

“The death threats that my family and I have received since my comments are heartbreaking,” he wrote. “The racist and violent words directed at me and my son only serve as another reminder that our country remains divided and full of hateful rhetoric. “

You don’t want to receive threats? Ok, bye. You feel you’re being disrespected? Go play somewhere else. You don’t have to play here. It’s your freedom of choice.

Like abandoning your babymama when she pregnint. She white tho’, Mr. Black Unity.

Down Low got his SJW talking points following Eric Reid’s NYT editorial this week where they try to move the goalposts and say that spitting on the flag, the anthem, and the fans is really just about their amazing “dialogue” outreach program to Raise Awareness(tm) that millionaire blacks will complain about anything.

It baffles me that our protest is still being misconstrued as disrespectful to the country, flag and military personnel. We chose it because it’s exactly the opposite. It has always been my understanding that the brave men and women who fought and died for our country did so to ensure that we could live in a fair and free society, which includes the right to speak out in protest.

I’m sure there are a great many subjects baffle Mr. Reid. But no one is misconstruing his or Colin Kaepernick’s intent in flag and anthem protesting. He’s lying to himself or he’s lying to public about that.

Here is what Colin Kaepernick said about why he protests the flag and the anthem:

After the game, during an interview with, Kaepernick explained that the move was a protest over how the country treats black people and people of color.

“I am not going to stand up to show pride in a flag for a country that oppresses Black people and people of color,” Kaepernick said. “To me, this is bigger than football and it would be selfish on my part to look the other way. There are bodies in the street and people getting paid leave and getting away with murder.”

So there you have it. Straight from the ungrateful son of a bitch’s dicksucker. He is protesting the flag. He is protesting the anthem. It’s a racist country and he’s not showing it any respect ‘cuz “bodies in the streets” or some made-up bullshit.

And so the fuck is all of the NFL. You can try to massage the PR because of the blowback but we know exactly why you’re doing it, when you’re doing it.

All police should boycott NFL events. All military flyovers should be cancelled. The IRS should revoke the NFL’s tax status. And that’s just for starters. It’s my feeling that a lot of games have been rigged over the years.

Now reports are circulating that the Raiders offensive line threw the game because QB Derek Carr didn’t kneel for their anti-american anthem protest. So because Carr didn’t protest with them, the O-Line didn’t protect him and his receivers intentionally dropped balls.

As a source inside the Raiders lockerroom reported an offensive guard told him, “He wants to stand alone? He can stand alone on the field.”

So much for that “team unity” I keep hearing about. NFL, the check engine light on your multi-billion dollar car is flashing.

Tar Baby President Fights The White Supremacist NFL

I have been as critical as anyone of Trump in the past but he is an absolute genius to take on the NFL and the NBA. Trump goading the felons, the barely able to speak and read, the pampered and powdered wig owners flinging themselves against him to support the use of their taxpayer funded stadiums as an excuse to stick their middle fingers in the faces of their fans on a weekly basis is “The Art of War”.

And to do it abroad? Well, fuck you all forever.

I’ve watched football since I was two years old. Loved it. Followed it. Spent 16 hours a week watching games or playing fantasy. And I have been done with it for about a year now and don’t miss it at all.

This current imbroglio all stems from Ferguson and the Rams celebrating their felons’ non-sequitir protest against the national anthem in the course of their work duties. I have problems with the militarization of the police, the dissolving of the 4th amendment, civil asset forfeiture, and the rampant abuse of disproportionate force against people and animals.

But who goes to work and takes a knee to protest injustice in the lobby of their building? Who makes a public display of their political agreements every day in front of their employer’s customers and what employer celebrates them for doing it?

Customer: Umm, yea…I’d like to get some chicken tenders and a coke.
Cashier at Window 1: Imma let you finish but climate change is important to me so Imma take a knee to protest the Keystone pipeline for two minutes. Fuck you and go to window 2.
Cashier at Window 2: The plight of undocumented workers being kicked out of the only country they’ve ever known is responsible for me having to work the Fry-a-lator. Imma take a knee in silent protest. Pull ahead so you don’t count against my timer and park and I’ll bring your order out when I get through.

No one is saying that no one has a right to protest. But there is a place and a time. People looking for an escape from the stress of their daily lives shouldn’t have to be subject to having their multi-millionaire entertainers throw their tantrum against the flag and the national anthem that has absolutely nothing to do with their pet causes.

What does the flag and the anthem have to do with police?

The rub is that – let’s say this is all worked out this season. Are the fans ever going to forget that the spoiled rotten, crybullies on the field are a bunch of anti-american racebaiters who hate them and their institutions?

The NFL signed a suicide note this weekend. The players wrote it so it’s illegible and misspelled but the white supremacist owners co-signed it in counterparts. The slaveowners joined with the slaves to paraphrase Colin Kaepernick’ svengal. These organizations currently only exist because of a bad deal they signed with ESPN. Like Saudi Arabia warring with US frackers, the NFL can survive for a while on less revenue from dwindling ticket sales and merchandise purchases. Not so much without advertising revenue.

But this is a war. And if it’s war the NFL wants – it’s war the NFL should get. Boycott the games in person and on tv. Have Congress end the NFL’s anti-trust exemption.

I never believed that the goal of all the concussion talk was meant to be anything other than a ploy to end the NFL. Clearly, enough owners and players have enough brain damage to make that happen.

The guardians of the goose that laid the golden egg have fatally misjudged the dynamic.

The Crack of Massah’s Whip

I get it now. Low watt lemming Kaepernick didn’t go full blown Kunta Kinte over the crack of massah’s whip.

No, it’s so much simpler than that.

He’s throwing his career on the funeral pyre because he’s just pussywhipped.

Before beginning his relationship with Diab, Kaepernick’s Instagram mostly consisted of photos of him playing football or hanging with friends — about 128 of Kaepernick’s 170 posts, according to Fox News. Since dating Diab, Kaepernick’s social media focus has shifted toward black nationalist and Black Lives Matter-related messages.

“31 of his last 42 posts have strong social justice connotations, often featuring quotes from radical Nation of Islam leader Malcolm X, Black Panthers founder Huey Newton and cop killer Assata Shakur,” according to Fox News.

Let him suck a few more of Aldon Smith’s creampies out of her and Kaepernick will be wearing a bowtie, handing out fliers for The Final Call, and selling bean pies at the intersection.

She didn’t accidentally get good in bed, chump. I’d say “Bros before Hoes” but there were quite a few more bros in that DJ Sloppy Seconds ho before you decided to start watching reruns of Good Times and becoming a Light Beige Panther.

What I’m saying is she didn’t go from screwing the linebacker to the QB because you are such a charming fella and scintillating conversationalist.

Clearly, she has given you “your opinions”.

Remember that in a few years once you’re traded to Detroit and arrested outside of Dearborn for buying bombmaking materials from an undercover FBI agent.

And food stamp Kim Kardashian is onto the next sucker with half of what’s left of your money following your career ending knee injury in front of a cheering Military Night crowd.

Yea We Caught AIDS From Brazilian Sex Slaves Three Days Ago

…While representing the United States at the Olympics. Wanna fight about it?

Carmelo Anthony said his U.S. men’s basketball teammates need to accept responsibility and move on after reports that three players visited a legal brothel in Rio de Janeiro.

“What’s done is done. We have time off and guys did what they did. We accept those responsibilities and move on,” said Anthony, a four-time Olympian and the elder statesmen of the team.

I have no problem with legalized prostitution. What happens between a willing buyer and a willing seller is between them. Well, between them and their babys’ mamas back home who they’re bringing back a fatal case of Brazilian SuperAIDS as a souvenir.

Hey, it’s worked out great for Magic Johnson.

What part of “accepting responsibility” is continuing to lie about how you ended up at one of the most famous whorehouses in Copacabana and facing no repercussions, such as being sent home and stripped of any Olympic prestige, for getting serviced by possible sex slaves while representing us?

Who do they think they are? The Secret Serviced, I mean, Service???

This is why nobody gives a shit about the Olympics. They have no standards. Carmelo and company went on to trounce those little Chinese ballers 119-62.

Apparently, that’s all that matters.

Lady Vols Not Ladyboys

I saw this riding on a car’s bumper the other day and had to do a double-take.

From the Department of Unfortunate Cross-branding:

I knew UT had a recent brouhaha over wanting to fine, expel, and genitally mutilate students before sending them to re-education camps for not calling he/she/its by some new pronouns they invented five minutes ago but this?

It’s too insidious. They’re the Lady Vols not the Ladyboys. Cameltoes not camel’s nose.

We don’t want to know that your Ford F-150 secretly wants to be a convertible Mazda Miata or that your automatic Audi TT would rather be a stick. Maybe you get off on teasing those cisgenders at Pep Boys with your shocks and struts. But the only one who should know if you’ve blown a tranny should be your mechanic.

Come on, people. Pick a side.

Islam Has Been Woven Into The Fabric of Football Since The Beginning

Can we not have a moment’s peace? Is it not enough that North Korea launched a nuclear capable ICBM in advance of the Super Bowl further demonstrating the unmitigated lunacy of the Iranian Nuke deal?

The answer, yet again, is no (via Newsbusters):

Barack Obama will once again be inserting himself into the Super Bowl on Sunday. This time, CBS has chosen Gayle King, a donor, supporter and family friend to Mr. and Mrs. Obama. Considering that King has partied at the White House, viewers of the pre-game show shouldn’t expect tough questions from the CBS This Morning co-host.

Obama has done an interview before each Super Bowl since 2009 and many of them have included softballs. But none of the previous journalists have been such ardent and open supporters of the President and Mrs. Obama.

Priorities. Many of us would like to finally found out what his favorite kind of ice cream is or what he thinks makes him so great.

I’d like to ask Gayle how many licks it takes to get to the center of Oprah’s twat just for scientific purposes. That question would certainly have more meat to it than whatever ego-stroking, legacy writing hagiography that King plans on donating through the most prized broadcast real estate.

Perhaps we’ll be treated to the telegraphed “Looking back, what’s your greatest disappointment?” softball that invariably ends in “I wish we could have worked together more” as if he did not play the leading part in creating the acrid atmosphere for eight years or “I could have tried harder to explain myself to you morons”.

Regardless, we can’t have a Super Bowl without Mooch the Beard and the Big Me, Me, Me, I, I, I, Mine, Mine, Mine taking a big dump on the country before kickoff.

Now put down those hot wings and pick up some kale chips. You’e got a lot of Let’s Movin’ to do. Gather ’round little churrens so we can find out about how Muslims were woven into the fabric of American football since the very beginning. That “pigskins” were banned after Muslims invented vulcanized rubber.

When Hank Stram and Vince Lombardi would quote inspirational suras before each game and when the adhans were broadcast from the minarets of the Los Angeles Coliseum.

The NC Gay A

I know there’s a lot of other pressing shit going on but since the NCAA is only concerned with guys pressing their dicks into other people’s shit being able to eat a wedding cake I thought I’d tool around on this topic.

To wit, Indiana Governor Mike Pence’s recent signing of the Religious Freedom Restoration Act that ostensibly allows private business owners to not be forced to violate their faith in the wake of the federal government and their minions in the courts enthusiastically sodomizing businesses into closure for not celebrating the homosexual agenda.

Enter stage left. NCAA President Mark Emmert immediately threatens to take his balls and go to Fire Island or wherever:

The NCAA, which is holding the Final Four men’s basketball tournament in Indianapolis next week, also expressed concerns. NCAA President Mark Emmert said the Indianapolis-based group would examine “how it might affect future events as well as our workforce.”

By all means, please reevaluate where the NCAA’s modern day slavery will play or be based out of in the future. A man who governs a same-sex sports league that demands billions of dollars in television revenue and alumni donations and only provides a half-assed education, if that, to so many student athletes is concerned that his employees aren’t treated fairly at some hypothetical bakery. He sells shirts with unpaid players’ numbers on them, demands that they take a four year vow of poverty, and they don’t get paid a dime. They sustain physical injuries that they carry for the rest of their lives and he could not give a damn.

But this, this is just a Golden Gate Bridge too far. The NCAA may not be able to blackmail the State of Indiana into accepting the recent unholy union of the Gaystapo and the federal government in their celebratory mazel tov as they stomp their matching jackboots on the throats of the Little Sisters of the Poor, Notre Dame, Hobby Lobby, etc. but there are a number of things that are in their control.

For example, how committed are the league’s players to taking it to the hole? I mean I know the NCAA screws their players over regularly but they could easily demand that their players sign a statement affirming their commitment to gay rights before being allowed to play.

A number of them appear to have tattoos of religions that do not condone homosexuality. Those should be removed as they are quite microaggressive.

March 31st is International Transgender Day of Visibility. Perhaps the men’s teams and the women’s teams can switch uniforms for that day to underscore the NCAA’s commitment to denying both science and Nature. The fact that they haven’t done this yet offends me.

Given that NCAA games can be located in every state of the union, some of which are bound to adopt similar laws to Indiana’s, this is a declaration of war that could start a competing league. Why should a state like Indiana have to continue to provide logistical support to this non-profit association? Does the NCAA build gymnasiums and football stadiums or do the taxpayers of the states that support these laws?

This isn’t a codification of state sponsored discrimination. It is a natural reaction to a federal government that is forcing private citizens to take part in ceremonies against their religious beliefs or be shut down and it is without end. If the federal government can force you to violate your religious beliefs, they can compel you to do anything.

Personally, I don’t think any of these issues are cut and dry. How is this different than a “No shirt, No Shoes, No Service” sign? A bar that says they reserve the right to refuse service to any customer?

Ideally, if someone does not want my business – say a restaurateur who puts a “no guns in my restaurant” sign to discourage concealed carriers – then I just don’t frequent that business. I can’t demand that the federal government sue him into providing private catering services to my NRA function at the gun range. The right to bear arms is a civil rights issue after all. This man, let’s call him Randy Rayburn, does not even have a religious exemption on this issue. His property rights should not supersede my civil rights.

But people can’t just be left alone. The Soup Nazis must be brought before Nuremburg. To proactively protect those who may want to buy a cake from someone who doesn’t want to bake them a cake and who base the decision to buy a cake solely on who doesn’t want to make it for them so they can sue them.

We must be supremely intolerant of the intolerant in the name of tolerance.

Can Peyton Manning Lower The Employment Rate?

Only if he drops out of the work force permanently:

It is so sad and so hard to write it again, but it’s true: Peyton Manning is done in Indianapolis.

After listening to Manning Monday night, after listening to owner Jim Irsay characterize Manning Thursday as “a politician” who should keep his concerns “in house,” there’s no other conclusion to be reached by a sane, sober human being: Manning’s days in Indianapolis are over, and they have been over for quite some time. On a day when the introduction of Chuck Pagano as the Colts new head coach should have been the story, Irsay stole the headlines.

The NFL is a cut-throat industry where the all-American, clean living, do-everything-right poster boy for your organization and the League is tossed out in the street so a mediocre team like the Colts can hope to get Luck-y by throwing the dick of their future on the craps table of the next Draft?  Say it ain’t so!

My heart aches for the state of Indiana.  For about two seconds.  Any way.

If anyone in earshot can communicate this to Manning:  Come home to Tennessee.

Quit designing video games and do it for real.  The University of Tennessee is in such a state of disrepair that they’re having to layoff police officers because the team isn’t even worth arresting anymore.  That burglary is going unsolved.

Take this game to another level.  Use UT to be a flagship student-athlete program where you recruit the talent and bring them up through the ranks to create a next NFL generation with a little more humility and a little less pitbull fighting.

Be the anti-Spurrier.


Orwell Nods: When Is War Not “War”?

Why, when you justify bypassing Congress to authorize the use of force under the War Powers Act, silly.

Just don’t call it a war and it’s not a war.

/Because of Teh Optics! ™

And speaking of Teh Optics, Preznint My Pet Goat can dispatch those rumors about not being able to walk and chew gum at the same time.  He can start Not-A-War and play with kids’ balls at the same time.

I assure you – we are in the very best of hands, er, feet.

And watch out kids, remember – Obama’s a pedal-phile after all.


To Hell With The Saints

Who doesn’t love an underdog?  Year in and year out for decades the lowly Aints have struggled to even make it to a playoff but now they’re in The Big Game.  Are we supposed to be surprised when they can’t act like they’ve been there before?

NEW ORLEANS – A student at a Maurepas school was sent home by the principal for refusing to take off an Indianapolis Colts jersey, according to a statement from the American Civil Liberties Union.

“(T)he Principal of Maurepas High School, which had declared that students could wear jerseys in support of the New Orleans Saints, punished a student for wearing a jersey in support of the Indianapolis Colts,” said ACLU Executive Director Margie Esman in an e-mail.

“The student, who had lived most of his life in Indianapolis and has an outstanding academic record, was called out of class and told that he was not allowed to wear that shirt. When he refused to change his shirt, the principal sent him home.”

We’re just talking about one out-of-control, tinpot fascist here – right?  A rogue principal whose school spirit borders on North Korean nationalism.  But then you delve into the comments section and see how far some people are willing to go to support his actions.  Running the gamut from calling for permanent expulsion of the student, to veiled personal threats of the student because “they know who he is”, to calling for arresting his parents with a few “whodats” peppered inbetween.   Rules are rules!

Maurepas High Valedictorian, Lootie: Just following the rules!

It’s easy to think some people are engaging in a bit of pre-Super Bowl hyperbole but since most Saints fans can’t spell “hyperbole” I dismissed that out of hand.  They’ve expelled one of the brighter students at their school for engaging in a harmless bit of free expression because he didn’t read the DRESS CODE.  This criticism coming from people who couldn’t watch a weather forecast for an entire week warning them to get out of the way of a CAT-5 hurricane the size of Germany.

Dumbasses don’t follow rules.

Rule #1:  Big Hurricane = Move.

But seriously, folks – Go Colts!

And if by some miracle of animal sacrifice and voodoo magic New Orleans is able to win then the police will need to be on standby.

To prevent Houston from being burned to the ground.

Jobs Are Your New Boise State

And apparently they aren’t going to get #1 ranking either:

The Obama administration is considering several steps that would review the legality of the controversial Bowl Championship Series, the Justice Department said in a letter Friday to a senator who had asked for an antitrust review.

“The administration shares your belief that the current lack of a college football national championship playoff with respect to the highest division of college football … raises important questions affecting millions of fans, colleges and universities, players and other interested parties,” Weich wrote.

Take your Ritalin, guys.  In a battle between the BCS and the ADHD, I’m betting on the BCS.

Nobody’s solved healthcare.  Nobody’s solved crap.  You don’t want to prosecute the New Black Panthers in Philadelphia but you’re ready to roro-rooter the BCS Series?

“Interested parties” means congressmen and senators who would like free tickets to ogle college poon and prick while they “investigate”.

Jobs are our #1 priority.  Sure.  But they’ll never get above #6 until they schedule a few more Big-12 and SEC games during election season.

Belated Thanks to Six Meat West

Yes, a belated hat tip to Yiddish and Nigel for not clubbing the Titans crowd to death with the yule log Vince Young laid in the home field stocking on Christmas night.

Class act, ya’ll.  With poise, you remained silent after the nationally televised, open-air colonoscopy Philip Rivers performed on the Titans’ secondary.  Thanks to the camera mounted on the tip of his foot, we have identified several polyps in need of removal during the suddenly present offseason.

Admittedly, my prediction would have been was 3-4 interceptions for Young but my fortune-telling abilities had been damaged during a freak turkey & dressing accident earlier in the day.  Little did I know that the biggest turkey was yet to come  as Young had only two interceptions and a forehead slapping fumble.  For the passes where he did sling on target, my dog’s veterinarian hasn’t seen that many balls dropped.  Instead of VY, we’ve got KY.  And every time he’s in use we’re gonna get screwed.

His accuracy as a passing QB makes me long to see Marty Feldman suit up.

Coach Jeff “Cold” Fisher can’t even muster a cheese spread knife of outrage as mistake after mistake compounded to 21 unanswered points topped off with a roughing the passer penalty against Rivers and a foul from the Titans bench after the play was over – all on the same play!

With the exception of a couple of our team members, the rest should serve as towelboys through the Chargers playoff run as they gratefully did not ramp up the score on them again like New England did.  So thanks again for not rubbing it in, guys.

Breaking: Football Players Are Stupid

Well, not all of them, just a very healthy percentage.

Three freshman Vols arrested, two charged with armed robbery.

KNOXVILLE – Three University of Tennessee football players this morning face attempted armed robbery charges

Janzen Jackson, Michael Edwards and Nu’Keese Richardson, all 18, were charged this morning after an armed robbery attempt at a Pilot station on Cumberland Avenue, according to the Knoxville Police Department.

Each player faces three counts of attempted armed robbery.

UT Athletic Director Mike Hamilton released a statement this morning about the episode.

“At this time we are currently evaluating the circumstances surrounding an incident involving Mike Edwards, Janzen Jackson and Nu’Keese Richardson,” Hamilton said. “Any decisions or comments regarding their status will not be made until the evaluations are complete.”

Both Richardson and Jackson are coming off a week in which they faced discipline from Vols coach Lane Kiffin, the former for missing a practice and the latter for a violation of team rules.

Kiffin has touted the discipline in his program and a clean arrest record as recently as Wednesday’s SEC teleconference.

Well, CLK, now’s your chance to make an example of these thugs. Your predecessor, the Great Pumpkin, would find some reason to keep these three on the team – at least, that is, if they were going to contribute. Kick these pieces of trash of the team and off campus and set the right tone for this program going forward.

Jackson was going to be the next Eric Berry, what a stupid asshole. What a trio of stupid assholes.

I Want Jeff Fisher’s Mustache Stuffed On My Mantle

I’m a Titans fan.  I love derivatives of Buddy Ryan’s acolytes on defense.  But the Titans’ need a coach and they don’t have one.

Aside from firing everything that touched the University of Texas on the team, the alternative is firing everything in coach’s gear on the sideline – starting at the top.  Jeff “Joe Cool” has no passion for this game anymore.  He’ll sleepwalk through the recap tomorrow before the Monday Night game and stoically “take the blame” for another humiliating bowel movement on all 100 yards of LP field – televised nationally to raise awareness for Colorectal Cancer Month.

His sideline demeanor raises awareness of Anger Management because no matter what seems to happen he never gets angry,throws down a clipboard, grabs a player’s face mask or decks an Offensive Coordinator for calling a run up the middle 3rd and long.  Of course, this could turn into a masochistic endeavor if we include the coach who turns down a penalty against the opposing team giving you 3rd &  8 and another chance to gets  a 1st down versus taking 4 & 2 and kicking a field goal.

You’re not really here to win anymore are you, Coach? Or is run left, run up the middle, incomplete pass to the left, punt some brilliant new strategy whose time just hasn’t come yet?

Facial Hair of Failure

You will be mine.

Paychecks need to be withheld because outside of the defense, the product that is being put on the field does not qualify as a football team.  Not that we’ll find that out from local sports talk radio who are so completely in the bag and starstruck that they are void of making any meaningful criticism.  You’re still doing my sitdown interview and we’re going to go play golf, right?

Nashville is such a polite city.  Nothing like the Chicagos or Philadelphias.

As our pampered, prideless, heartless multimillionaires can’t seem to catch the ball or run with it without dropping it, it’s time to up the stakes.

If Jeff Fisher cannot keep this almost all returning 13 & 3 team from last year from going 0-6 this year, he should be forced to shave his mustache on The Jeff Fisher Show next week.

We will keep his mustache in a fireproof safe, occasionally poke it with a stick and keep a bottle’s worth of Grecian Formula just out of reach to taunt it.

Titan Thursday Night

Aside from Tim McGraw’s lame, traveling suburban cowboy show to “warm up” for the game, I’ve got to say – If you aren’t watching the Thursday Night Titans/Steelers game. *glug, glug*

You are missing a heavyweight bout. *ding, ding*

Two teams, in their prime, and playing playoff caliber football in the first game of the season for your entertainment.

0-0 halfway through the 2nd Qtr.

Last 2 minutes of the game, Santonio Holmes catches a TD after Chris Hope breaks his coverage and the Steelers go up 7-0.
Polamalu is injured and leaves the field with 1:21 left in the 2nd.

Collins goes to Britt three times in a row knowing that he can break it without Polamalu and he gets down inside the 20 with 50-something left. Collins TD to Gage on the next play with :48 left.

Game of the Season. (more…)

Football Friday

It’s a glorious new day on Rocky Top. The Great Pumpkin’s regime has finally been shown the door. It should have happened at the end of the 2005 season, but we’ll take what we can get.

We now have a coaching staff that is actually coaching players and demanding accountability. No longer will a high school player come in and leave the program a crappier player. That was the Fulmer system – bring in a bunch of thugs, coach ’em down and send ’em on to the county lock-up or head to Shoney’s to cover up their off-the-field activities. I wouldn’t even be taking shots at Fulmer if he would have gone gracefully into the history books, but he continues to rear his head in the local media and the douchebags at the Knoxville News-Sentinel and on the Sports Animal keep carrying his water and running down the new staff. Keep it up, losers. The new regime’s train is leaving the station tomorrow and you Fulmer apologists are about to get run over.

Speaking of thugs, did anyone see Oregon player LeGarrette Blount sucker punch a Boise State player last night? Video is here. That turd should be kicked out of school, period – especially after he tried to go into the stands and assaulted some cops in the process. That’s the Oregon Ducks for you, though. Nothin’ but class.

Back to the Vols, a visit from Western Kentucky is the perfect way to ease into the season. This will be a glorified scrimmage, as WKU is just plain awful. Vols win, 44-10.


  • Bama 28 Va Tech 21Unless VA Tech can score 21 points on special teams, Bama should handle the Hokies fairly easily.
  • Oklahoma State 38 Georgia 28Georgia is not going to enjoy this road trip. They lost an over-rated QB and an over-rated RB from last year’s team, so they may actually be better this year. Should be a fun game to watch.
  • Ole Miss 33 Memphis 10Is Ole Miss as good as their hype? We’ll find out soon enough. This contest has traditionally been a close one, but not this year.
  • LSU 34 Washington 17I love those late night west-coast games when I’m almost passed out from spending Saturday drinking an entire bottle of hooch. John Chavis’ LSU defense is going to put the hammer down on UW.
