    Release the Doves.

    Sing and Play “Rocky Top”

    Junior n Lulu begin your Buck Dance.

    Prepareth his Royal Chariot as our Native Son Caesar returns to Rome.

    Phillip Edward Fulmer Sr. is returning to the hallowed ground of Neyland where we shal line the stadium for his glorious coronation.

    Get ready World, here comes the Messiah.

    So Alvin, you’re putting all your hopes in a 67 year old has-been that UT fired 9 years ago? Good luck with that. Especially how he sat in the background during this coaching search and sabotaged Curry. Can’t wait for UT to get what they deserve from this ordeal.

    If the “Messiah” is so great, I would like to know why 10 a c went through so much of a search to find him. After all it’s not like he has been recruiting in Jerusalem?

      The search was folly, the search was in vain because it was kismet that the road led back to Phil, a UT player, a UT Alumni and a UT Head Coach. Social Media reports people are weeping with joy all around the state of Tennessee. “Rocky Top” is blaring on every radio station. Peyton is flying to Knoxville to have a meeting with Coach Fulmer. Trump has tweeted his approval. Prime Ministers from every European country have sent telegrams of congratulations. ISIS has put a fatwa on the coach because he represents everything this country stands for.

      Although Phil will have to endure yet another round of fat jokes and remarks he will wave his magic wand and “make Tennessee great again”.

      His first task will be to find another Peyton Manning and then a top tier offensive line. The rest will fall into place.

    Bringing Fulmer back was the first smart thing UT has done in years. There’s no better person to stop the slide and get a decent coach.

    I respect Phil Fulmer greatly and know he has his heart and mind in the right place to do what needs to be done. I’ve enjoyed all the theatrics and bumbles in Knoxville but things have reached the ridiculous stage. The Vol program is a couple of years away from respectable right now no matter what happens or who they hire.

    So yes, we’ve reached the pity stage.

    UT is such a mess that it’s running down the entire SEC and especially the East Division. It’s about time they got back on track and got some respect back to the program.

      You’re right about one point. We’re a long way from being relevant in the SEC Fulmer or no Fulmer. We’re going to have to crawl crawl crawl before we can walk, before we can run.

    Only an inbred Tenn fan would see this move as logical or good for Tenn. Fulmer is a relic of past time and will do more to hurt the Tenn program then help it. Any fool that undermines a coaching search to promote himself is a waste of human flesh.

    It’s no different than with Florida right now and Mullen. There’s comfort in going back to a person and time you were great.

    Besides, with all the madness with the musical chairs in the UT Athletic Department and football team, you need immediate stability and a person who has unquestionable legitimacy and now authority.

    Payton Manning and John Gruden would also be of this stature.

      How many Gators would welcome Steve Spurrier as AD? At the very least you know an alumni and former player of the university will have its best interests at heart. Tee Martin has proven himself as a viable Offensive Coordinator the way he’s driven the USC offense and the abilities of superstar Sam Darnold. Will he be Fulmer’s choice?

    I think picking him is great. Only because of two things, he is probably the best that they can hope for as an AD, and it will be difficult to impossible for him to stab himself in the back on purpose. He might do that through incompetence. Waiting might be best so they get a former Vole as coach. How about Peyton coming home?
