Rocky Top Talking Points: Outback hangover edition

  • Abbreviated today:

  • Well, only 242 days until the next football game. The Vols will be traveling to Berkeley to take on California on September 1, 2007, which no doubt has vengeance on its collective mind. Fortunately for us, their Heisman-contending running back Marshawn Lynch is not returning for his senior season. So there's that.
  • Smitty busts out the numbers and asks whether coach Fulmer should retire over in the diary section. I'm abstaining for now, but the numbers are sobering.
  • Corn from a Jar at the Tennessee Fanhouse compares 2006 to 1997 and hopes that the team will take a step from 2006 to 2007 similar to what it took from 1997 to 1998. Corn laments "I'm going to hope that change happens. But it feels like I've been hoping for a long time now." I have the exact same feeling. Hope is a good breakfast, but a terrible supper. And it's getting late.
