    In response to what Chad from Maryville has to say,you people are to quick to talk about the boys and their discipline problems, but are to jump in their faces for an autograph. Fulmer and the rest of his coaching staff are quite capable of handling the displine problems, they did before Coach Cut came back and they will when he is gone. Coach Cut you will be missed. It's a sad say in Tennessee Football.

    How do you think Cutcliffe leaving will effect QB recruiting? And who do you think will replace him?
