    This was evidently discussed by Clint Stoerner at some point during the Orange and White game. Our first three games will be played in under two weeks. Georgia Tech, Indiana State, and Florida all goes down between 9/4 and 9/16. Evidently Stoerner made a pretty big deal about this and was going into some very early excuse making for the Vols.

    Normally, that wouldn't be a big deal. What made my eyebrow raise was Jayson Swain this morning discussing Stoerner's comments. Evidently these guys usually come in and meet with the coaches a couple of days before the scrimmage and get updates about what's going on and basically just some talking points ideas so they have stuff to discuss during the broadcast. Swain pretty much said the 3 games in 13 days stuff was fed to the announcers by our staff. There's not really any way he could for sure know that, but pretty damning for him to openly say that on the air. I guess we aren't the only ones tired of the constant excuses.

    They do meet with coaches and get talking points. I do think a lot of coaches would [itch bay] about 3 games in 13 days

    But I doubt many make it a talking point in the spring

    If Indiana State is a problem, we just need to do away with the football program, raze Neyland, and build more parking garages and dorms.

    Wasn't doofus in charge of scheduling these 3 games in 13 days?

    Well, you know he didn't care. He knew he wasn't going to be around by now.

    I think your math is off.

    Technically that's 3 in 15.

    I forgot some people used doofus to refer to Dooley. I'm just using it to describe Jones.

    You are correct.

    Wouldn't be that shocked if Jones, too, thought he'd be elsewhere by 2017.

    Indiana State offered football scholarship money to half of my high school team back when I was in school. lol

    We had one guy go on to play D1 football, and it was at Vandy.

    If the schedule was Bama/Florida/LSU for 3 games in 13 days I'd have a tad bit more sympathy. If the reserves aren't playing against the Sycamores early in the 3rd, we've got a problem.

    Assuming the ones who didn't get tackled by kickers?

    This does have the clear scent of Eau de Excusé.

    This is the schedule pattern that saw VT lose to James Madison.

    That said, it's still Indiana State. There's a reason that spot was used for an FCS patsy and not somebody with a pulse like App or Bowling Green.
