Your Mother Slept With Wilt Chamberlain

A Sports Blog on why ALL Teams Suck…Again!

The Florida/Tennessee gradebook

Posted by Thomas the Terrible on September 22, 2008

I received a number of e-mails over the past week asking me to post on what I thought would be the outcome of this game. The reason I didn’t is simply because I knew what the outcome was going to be and I hate to spoil it for some. I could have written these grades sometime on Tuesday and I wouldn’t need to change a thing. A diamond is forever and so is Fulmer’s coaching style. Let’s go to the grades.

Quarterback F

Crompton still looks pathetic and is making to many simple mistakes to remain the leader of this team. His turnovers were costly; a fumble at the 2 and an interception from the 1 just before half only solidifies this fact.

Running Backs D

Fumbling Foster’s personal foul was a drive killer and then Foster transferred his fumbling aura to Hardesty on the very next play.

Receivers C-

No separation and of course Stocker makes a drop in the end zone.

Offensive Line D

Mistakes and penalties continue to plague this group. They never could open holes to get the running game going like they should have. When a running back managed to rip off a good run the yardage was negated by penalties.

Defensive Line C

They matched well against Florida and held Teabag Tebow to un-Heisman like numbers. However the running backs for Florida thrived.

Linebackers B-

Rico McCoy had ten tackles. Wilson had six and they also helped keep Tebow at bay.

Secondary A+

Man to man coverage kept Tebow from throwing over 100 yards. Terrific open field tackling. Eric Berry is the star of the entire team.

Special Teams F-

A punt return for a TD is inexcusable. Florida generally started on their own 40 throughout the game. Pathetic

Coaching F

Clawson is a bust. The red zone execution was sorry and crappy clock management. The decision to allow Crompton to remain QB for this team is baffling. The screen cap in this post tells the story. One bright spot was the players showed no signs of quitting. However I have to believe that was due to comments that were made by Florida players and not the coaching staff.

Overall F

Fire Fulmer.

    It’s time. He had a great run. The football program needs a new infusion of passion. Fulmer does not have the right mentality to coach this team at the level it’s expected to play at. Since the Manning/Tee Martin era our offense has not been stable. I seriously cannot believe that our university does not have a stable of solid QB’s (not Manning calibur), but good game managers… Winners. I hope we lose the rest of our games this year, so that it will mandate a change. Come on UT AD!!!

    My fucking trackbacks never work on your site. Regardless, I linked to this.

    I shit you not, I could do a better job of coaching this team. I know a trained chimpanzee named Ray-Ray that could inspire this team more than the current staff can. It’s beyond sad, it’s almost comical.

    Losing when you’ve given it your best effort I can handle, losing like this…

    I’ll need a special teams coach. Want the job? All you have to do is say, “See the guy with the ball?” “Tackle his ass.”

    Later dude.

    Vols fans need a new coach ,Fulmer is burnt out. If Fulmer was to get fired or resigned, Everone knows that TENN. has the money to get a NFL grade coach with new ideas and some much needed passion for the team and the fans. Maybe then I can stay for the entire game!
