Fulmer Death Watch: Tennessee Can't Get Itself Untangled

In the midst of all the fellating of the Southeastern Conference this football season, we've lost track of how badly Tennessee is slipping out of the national profile. They blew a game against UCLA on national TV to start the year and were crushed by Florida. And now the future appears shaky; they've just had a high-profile recruit, a top 20 QB prospect, de-commit. "If you want Fulmer fired, fine. Understand though, that when the fans boo louder than they cheer, and when half the stadium is empty before the 4th quarter, you're hurting the program beyond the capability of any head coach to repair." [Rocky Top Talk] Some idiot in Athens is worried that people going to see the Georgia-Alabama game are going to use up the city's gas supply. I guess gas prices in Athens aren't high enough? [Dr. Saturday] Illinois fans think their protected rival should be Ohio State. "In 1997 the Big Ten began the "protected rivalries" scheduling scheme, which mandates that you're stuck with two teams every season in football no matter if you're their rival or not.

There is no known reason for his decision, and messages left with his agents have not been returned.Williams signed as a free agent with L.A. just in August, and evidently decided at some point since then few weeks that he has had enough." [True Hoop] Why the fuck did Rams QB Marc Bulger get benched? [FanHouse] The Dodgers have to get their house in order for the playoffs. "...the Dodgers have numerous questions that beg answering before the postseason. Sending Brad Penny to the 60 day DL to create a space on the 40 man roster for Rafael Furcal will at least address the daily "Who ate all the ribs?" query inside the Dodgers clubhouse."
