Rocky Top is now Rock Bottom
Wow too many people still on the payroll
No surprising really. Buyouts for coaches that do work there and payouts for coaches who no longer work there, massive renovations of the athletic facilities and Neyland (although not sure if that comes out of the athletic budget), drop of 30,000+ season ticket renewals over the time Dooley was the coach, general fall in revenue streams. I am surprised it is not more...
Started at the bottom, now we here.....better get used to it.
Don't forge the Volunteer Recruiting experts....the girls!
The New York Times has a verrrrry interesting story about an NCAA investigation at Tennessee, concerning recruiting i.e., hot Tennessee co-eds who get quite friendly with talented high school football players. (Updates below)

No shot here, but Auburn just paid a truckload in buyouts too. How are things there?
We good. Plenty of money round here. Remember we got a national championship for 180k. That little investment paid off pretty well.
Is it true that the last coach at Tennessee to beat a top-25 team was Lane Kiffin?
Is it also true that the last coach at Tennessee to lead the Volunteers to a winning record was Lane Kiffin?
Is it true that you were preseason #1 and ended up losing 6 games?
as an alabama fan i respect tennessee. there is no doubt in my mind they will be back ...on the field and off the field. historical, the vols have been the second best power from the south. go ahead and kick them now while their down but in the very near future they will start kicking ass again. people have been disrespecting them too long. check their records against all other sec schools and you will see what i'm talking about.
I'm glad some people understand that all programs go through this but the major ones like Alabama & Tennessee & Notre Dame etc always make it back to the top.
Old news from last week.
Very very much in the black.
Trust we know, one bad hire and ur set back. A Shula here, a richRod there. Weis and Kiffin and Dooley.
very true. in our case it was 2 bad hires in a row.
Which is still a winning record in the toughest, greatest-thing-since-sliced bread-bestest-only football conference-i America.
See even a Kiffin can do it in the SEC and especially at Tennessee...The Bakersfield of the South.
This has Kiffin written all over it
You mad tho.
Yeah, your insults would hold more water if you hadn't lost to the Yellow Jackets.
Oh well. Shxt happens. Teams lose to shxtty teams all the time. Georgia to UCF, Michigan to App. State, Alabama to UL Monroe. Stop acting as if Alabama has never lost to an inferior team.
Keep the insults coming. We lost 7 and you lost 6. Good job Kiffin. Atleast we're taking a step in the right direction by hiring a winner. You're stuck with that idiot for another year.
We did when we went 7-6. Not when we were preseason ranked #1.
