    Hey, the truth hurts. Tennessee fans missed out on GS as a result of its fans not really thinking Greg was good enough for them, so they used manufactured outrage to drag a man's character through the mud who's a better person than they could ever hope to be.

    A lot of people down there are simply hicks from the sticks. They treated GS like garbage without anything remotely factual to base their behavior on, and as such, I have no problem at all with his statement. (And I also don't expect Greg to miss any sleep over it or issue any apologies either.)

    If he said it, I love it and if he didn't say it, it's odd that people and every media outlet are saying he did. I would guess he said it, but it would be nice to see the clip of him saying it.

    ooh.. schedule them for 5 years from now... home and home.. Challenge them to come up to New Jersey in late October.. they have to say yes, right?

    Or a neutral site game early season in Philly or Metlife or even DC

    Looks like an RU vs.Tenn matchup
    might make a good OOC rivalry the way this thread shows total dislike for the Tuxedos

    I’m now convinced the most prominent line of work in TN is Not Working

    well a neutral site closer to us would be okay with me... as long as its fair money-wise.. I just think it would be interesting to see them squirm.. a fair offer for home and home or a neutral site.. which they have never done with us.. you have to know they wouldn't want to do that.. being an SEC team.. so if they get all upset about Schiano throwing shade.. would be cool to put them on the spot. They deserve the criticism.. several of them should have had their pants sued off.. not that they wear pants.

    It’s a commonly-used statement in and out of this area that NY sports fans (which includes NJ) are more knowledgeable in sports than most if not all other sports markets.

    For Greg to say the same about Rutgers fans, which is roughly the same fan base, should be completely non-controversial.

    Call out he wahmbulance for them. They think they belong at the top of the SEC but are nowhere near competing there.

    This game always comes down to recruiting. A Tenn/Rut series helps them more than us.

    If we're going to schedule an SEC team (with our division being as tough as it is I wouldnt even think about it by the way) make it Gators, A and M, or Georgia. Otherwise why bother.

    Help me out here. He says we are a little sharper ? How ? We were smart enough to fight to get him hired ?

    No one believes it was actually the PSU thing that blocked his hire there. Were they dumb to want a more accomplished coach ?

    And what's your point?

    We had some great players here in the 2000s that were ranked 2 star or lower. We also had quite a few 2 star and lowers that ... lived up to their rankings.

    I also remember Greg rolling out the red carpet for 5 star Brian Toal. Would Greg have accepted commitments from Brian Cushing or Dwayne Jarrett? If he was here a few years ago do you think he'd like Gary and Peppers?
    If we want to eventually beat OSU we need big time players here - some of them will no doubt be misranked as 2 stars and develop into NFL guys in time but a lot of them are going to be big time recruits that turn out to be big time players that we need to win.

    Tennessee doesn't have enough players in-state to focus our efforts on so I don't see much reason to play them. I also don't like the idea of another SEC school not THAT far away all of a sudden having an in here.

    It’s really amazing how many swear they either heard it or didn’t hear it.
    • Yanny or Laurel?
    • Blue or Gold dress?
    • Rabbit or Duck?
    • Wife or Mother-in-Law?
    The correct answers are Laurel, Blue dress, Duck, Wife, and he did not say it during the official press conference on Rvision. The raw unedited footage is still up in case anyone wants to check my work.



    BTW, I’d love for Rutgers to publicly ask/challenge TN for a series on Twitter. It probably couldn’t take place for 4+ years, so hopefully we’d be ready by then.

    What is it about teams that wear orange, and their fans being ignorant asshats?

    They appear to be in such a huff that most forgot it is "Bring your Tooth to Work Day" in Tenn!
