No Respect...

.. last night I cooked up a cauldron of my infamous beer-chili and settled back to watch the game.... unlike last week, both the game and the chili turned out quite well... the Vols pulled it out in overtime... funny, though... the first game where Tennessee claims that Ainge is Da Man, and he gets his narrow ass replaced by Mr. Backup...

... sure, Clausen ain't as purty as Ainge... and he doesn't throw those Hollywood 50-yarders... but at least he gets the job done... one piece at a time, that's what it's all about... keep that ball moving forward... five yards per play works just fine... just fine indeed...

... I'm no Casey Clausen fan... but I'm starting to get downtown with his little bro... Rick did an outstanding job last night... and that fact, rubberneckers, is without dispute... possibly one of the best comebacks EVER in SEC history... Pat Forde writes this today... and I agree completely....

"BATON ROUGE, La. -- The hero of the greatest rope-a-dope performance since the original, Ali vs. Foreman, was Rick Clausen.

No, seriously. Rick Clausen. Nobody's All-American. The middle child cursed to be lost in the shadow of both big brother Casey (a four-year starter at Tennessee) and little brother Jimmy (one of the nation's top quarterback prospects).

The guy who's been dissed, dismissed and demoted so often that he should have officially changed his first name to "Backup." The guy who was buried on the depth chart for two years at LSU, spurring him to transfer. The guy who then was buried on the depth chart last year at Tennessee, until multiple injuries gave him a chance to save the Big Orange season."

.. if you ask me, Tennessee HAS A STARTER NOW... and it should remain that way for the rest of the season...

Bullshit So Far

As much as it pains me, an LSU fan to admit it, Mr. Clausen whooped our rear ends. Even though I really don't like Phil Fulmer and hearing "Rock Top" makes me want to cut my ears off, his performance last night was outstanding.

Here's to all the not-so-pretty boys who get the job done.

I thought the Vols were cooked and done at the half. What a comeback. But I'm still with Jim--- hearing "Rocky Top" makes me want to cut my ears off.

I forgot the damned game was on last night, and was tuned into the snoozer that was MNF. I heard the score, and the reports this mornin'. Now, this ain't nothin' 'gainst the LSU fans, but hey, when a #4 ranked loses... overtime or not, and a #10 ranked wins... A #8 ranked is likely to move up. I'm jus' sayin'. Congrats Eric, and T fans. Sorry for y'all LSU fans, but that's why they play the games man. Texas got us Buckeyes this year... I feel your pain.

Congrats to your Vols, Eric. I'm still in shock. What a comeback. At the end of the first half, I thought it was as good as over. Unfortunately, the Tiger players must have thought the same thing. Clausen did one helluva job rallying the team and winning the game. He should be the starter. Ainge was clearly rattled by the pressure. Maybe we'll get a rematch in the SEC Championship.

LOL - I actually stopped to look in at this game for a few minutes - saw that the Vols were just being wiped out and decided I didn't want to see such a lopsided game - thus I moved on. I guess I should have watched for a while longer!
