10 Ring, I did not see the Vol-Mizzo game, but my I spoke with someone if not close to the program is close to the TV. My pal from our salad days on frat row explains it, "three of Mizzo's big men rung up four fouls with about 10 minutes left." Stokes did not once get the rock where he could challenge those guys." I did not see that subplot in Mr. Brown's article. So is my pal correct or does the prize is Mr. Brown?
Whoever is correct, it's agreed that 4-90 from the three line with one second half touch for Stokes is embarrassing as in the Wade Houston roll out the balls era. Couch preformed admirably his first year, but he's slipped each year since.
The Vols have 20,000 plus seats to fill from November to March.

9er, the Order of the Red Banner was awarded to all the officials including the time keeper in secret ceremony in 1973. This revealed after the fall of the Soviets.
Of course, Russians remember. Olympic Gold was a triumph of Communism over the decadent West. The victory was the talk of the of Soviet Citizens as they stood in endless lines to buy a turnip and a hunk of coarse black bread enough to feed four for a week.
You made me work for this, a nut goes for a nut?
10 Ring, oh my, you disappoint. Where's your lustful USA, USA, USA? Hell, the team not only beat the Russian steamroller, they iced Putin, forcing the CZAR of All Rus' keep his shirt on. House arrest now for those in the Russian Hockey hierarchy deemed liable followed by a show trial and 20 years in the real deep freeze after the games.
Rushmores, get your Rushmores, here! Pele, Lance Johnson (before we knew), Tiger Woods (before we knew), A-Rod? (before we knew).
Ten Ring, Team #1 takes to the 75 North super slab this weekend all the way to the "Big House," where relations are warming quite nicely despite the season.
Ms. Sohn, on Corker's drum beating, first he has information from sources we'll never reach from his perch as Ranking Member on the Senate Foreign Relations Committee. Two, he was indeed speaking for Volkswagen, who could not speak for itself due to pressure from it's own labor council, guild, whatever represented on VW's BOD. When Corker said his own silence was misinterpreted, read Wolfsburg. Yes, Virginia, the new line was on the line.
Mr. Cooper, I can't say I see how a UAW win in Chattanooga would have much bearing on Big Three negotiations, but I thank you for the reminder. One similarity, GM has UAW on the board, so the pattern bargaining begins there. Then Ford Motor which received no bail out. It will be interesting to see how things go with Fiat. In a perfect world, the GM leadership should shrug and explain they're a $Billion behind on the Volt.
Ms. Sohn, although this area is better off with out the UAW, we are graced with the Building Trades, especially the IBEW/NECA partnership training superb electricians. The TFP might have delved into that example of partnership, but maybe I flat missed it.
A contradiction of the UAW and others in the AFL-CIO was the initial of support of Obama Care, morphing into these same friends trying to secure exemptions from it. When Obama spoke out for the UAW, he needed to.
Another fissure, the president is also upside down with labor on the XL Pipe Line, as in more Union jobs real quick like a bunny.
This also an example of new Obama torch of "Income Inequality."
Ultra moneyed liberal interests in the Democratic Party with their own version of scientific predilections and large investments in "Green Energy" are shafting down ladder working folks; union or not, but that division is another rant for another day.
10 Ring, do you anticipate any impact of slowing up the hurry up offense on Butch Jones' scheme? Will this be the first chip to fly in corralling College Football's "live ball" era?
Mount Rushmore of best Snow scenes: A) Patton, B) Band of Brothers, C) It's a Wonderful Life, D) Where Eagles Dare.
10 Ring, I'm really tweeked as opposed to twerked about this players union nonsense coming out of Northwestern. As kooky as a union sounds, the NLRB is stocked with five Obama appointees.
If there is to be a union, how long until it gets into politics like the rest?
What we have here is a proposal for a new Komsomol, the Soviet's All Union Young Communist League agitating for less practice time, more money and benefits a say in how drills conducted and which time of day is acceptable. That's just the beginning. Even at your beloved Auburn, the players will be singing "The International." That's if Auburn players can remember the words.
10 Ring, I'm ambivalent on Washington's fortunes, so why not keep the name Redskins, as in Redskin peanuts. Put a war bonnet on a giant size peanut, and who's gonna know the difference. How about buying the rights to the Washington Generals? If the need is to go 180^, name the Skins the LBGT with rainbow uniforms. How about NOW, as in win now, the future is now?
I'll tell you where Goddell has my respect, he's married to Jane Skinner of FOX News fame. Having said that, there needs to be a two team stadium in LA with the Raiders landing the AFC spot.
"The King" Richard Petty (pronounced breathlessly as one word) was a childhood hero to me, so some pain associated with this rejoinder; can anyone name the last time a Richard Petty Enterprises car was running at the top?
Sorry, 10 Ring, I was caught up plumbing past experiences.
A) The Rolling Stones
B) Jimi Hendrix
C) The Doors
D) Eric Clapton
Don't think I can make that scene, Daddyo. I clutch my sporting dollars tightly, so when not fishing, I support the Chattanooga Roller Girls, and their CRG Workout commercials.
10 Ring, I doubt Sam will receive an initiation different from the other rooks. If the man keeps his off field life off the field and out of the locker room, I see a case for team harmony sooner not later.
The chancellor makes the gym at least three times a week. Sometimes, unwanted attention is takes the form whistling as I walk by. The next level of "awkward" was a "chance" encounter after turning around. I frequent the same row of lockers. Imagine running smack dab into an older man standing right behind you singing, "You ought to be pictures, you're wonderful to see." I let him down easy by telling him I didn't know the next verse.
I doubt they're be any "singing" up by the players or coaches. If there is the Team, the media, the PA and the league will see it through they're own stove pipes.
