I've been for a workout and I've returned revitalized. I'm waiting on the pest control guy who after all of these years..maybe 10 has become a friend of sorts, to show up this morning. By that I mean he goes around and does the spraying etc inside and out but I follow as he goes and we are 100% talking about college sports. I LOVE college football and sort of pay attention to some other sports and I can talk about sports with the enthusiasm I feel. Our team, the U.T. Vols has done abysmally these past three years due to a new coach a year. No, I mis-spoke...prior to that three years it was a coach a year. Now we have Coach Dooley who has been coach for this is the third complete year and this is also a year he had better produce or I'd say he's history.
That's a shame because the Coach can only work with the men he can recruit and the rest is up to THEM to follow thru with what they have been trained to do. THAT seems to be the missing link. The team has been PITIFUL these past three years. We now rank at the bottom of the SEC East and that has never happened until these past three years, especially last year.
However, my point was I can talk to the pest control guy about football and he never tires of it as he is just as much a fan and very knowledgeable about football in general. I admit that I only watched maybe three games last season the Vols stunk so badly. I will start out watching again this year and I have slight hopes.
Lastly I'll say if I glom onto someone (and there are PLENTY of fans around east Tennessee) who loves the Vols or college football they sure have a friend in me.
This is my wanted poster.
