Hi ya'll! Week 1 has come and gone, and on this fine holiday weekend, I embark on my first weekly installment here on RTT. As Twitter Stalker, I'll try to bring you the best and the worst of the tweetspeak. Week One had pregame jawing, scoping out the Grizz, and post game tweets.
wesrucker247 Wes Rucker Congratulated DC Justin Wilcox on starting first 2 true freshman LBs in game 1 in Vols history. "Awesome. What do I get for that?
Well, coach, you win a few oopsies on coverage, but a ton of reps for the youngsters!
Following in the footsteps of Dooley's infamous Rommel reference, Maurice Couch busts out a new WWII reference for a football game.

Did anyone else have flashbacks of this being really bad news? (OMG, they are out, possibly at a bar, drinking...YIKES!) Then we see that he has a little BasketVOL in him. Bobby Maze and Wayne Chism would be proud:

Hopefully, while there, he relayed the following message to our defense: The opponent's offense, like some utterly delicious hashbrowns should always be Smothered and Covered.
A positive stat about turnovers

That still doesn't excuse approximately one million fumbles.
Looking forward to next week?

Lastly, I know the Orange Pants are a hot topic. I'm pretty sure every Vols beat writer had a poll with a yay or nay. Issues with the accessorizing of said pants have touched all of our lives forever. We can lay this to rest with the following tweet:
Vols_Beat Austin Ward VERY IMPORTANT FASHION NOTE: Dooley took some heat for his belt appearing not to match, but it looked brown in person. #analysis
Dooley later noted that several staff members pushed for a white belt and white shoes. His wife thankfully intervened, and made the decision for brown. I appreciate Dooley not looking like a candy corn/extra in Caddyshack for out home opener. And I doubly appreciate the pants giving homage to Coach Majors before he opted for suits.
Well, folks, there you have it. Miss anything? Leave em below.
