    I went over there to see if my tennis buddy had posted anything about tennis.

    I ended up getting into two separate threads about the merits of Dooley. Was I just destroying folks left and right? Why do you even ask? Of course I was.

    Anyway, the reason I'm posting is that the pro-Dooley crowd over there is worse than you ever imagined. And I don't mean in terms of numbers of people. What I mean is that the "arguments" they present in favor of Dooley are on their face devoid of any and all merit. Stuff that is too dumb to even warrant a response. Statements that are just silly. And yet the people making the statements appear to actually believe the words they are typing. It is bewildering to me.

    Now I'm not saying that everybody has to share my opinion on Dooley or they are wrong. What I"m saying is that there is a line between reasonable and unreasonable. And they crossed over the latter a long time ago, and they were upshifting as they did. It is a sight to behold. As soon as I saw that somebody wrote that UK had a more talented football team last year than UT, I had to leave. I felt I might get dumber if I carried on any further.

    Negavol. Not a true fan.

    I am a Barney the Purple Dinosaur loving simpleton because I feel that the expectation for UT football should be excellence. At least that's what I was accused of being. Would be comical if it weren't so sad.

    It's not all bad, so long as you take out the fact that even the worst of these people are Tennessee fans.

    Apparently some of them even went to UT. Which just breaks my heart.

    I know, that pisses me off. Probably psychology majors or some shit.

    When I saw a thread talking about the lack of UT players in the NFL draft as proof positive that Dooley is actually a great coach, I turned off my computer.

    It's really hard not to troll a bit.

    What was the logic, that draftable players stayed to play with Dooley? Did you ask who these future NFLers were?

    That's the dumbest argument I've seen yet.

    I will never understand why people go out of their way to make excuses for a coach that's 4-12 in the SEC. He was dealt a shitty hand, but he hasn't made it much better.

    It's also not really hard to troll a bit.

    and depressing at the same time knowing that the majority of our fan base is that stupid.

    As I was reading some of these posts on VN, I actually got a mental image of a gymnast on a beam bending over backwards.

    Definitely. I told the dude (or chick, I don't know), that it was the single dumbest thing I'd read in the calendar year 2012. And this wasn't hyperbole. It actually was.

    The steep plummet in average IQ of posters over there is the main reason I began posting over here more. This place may have a small group of people, but at least none of us are [uck fay]ing retarded. That place is almost cult like. If you don't support Dooley, you are ostracized beyond belief and attacked as if you were a convicted felon. But if you attack a Dooley supporter for his or her opinion, you are threatened with banishment. It's ridiculous.

    Are you banned over there yet, Indy?

    yeah. I was the reason for the slogan "Banned for charity!" in our yahoo bracket pool. I tried to take Hat's idea of buying tickets for less fortunate children over there and caught a perma ban for it.

    They are just [uck fay]ing stupid over there. I had forgotten that was you that got banned for that.

    Yeah. I was okay with it. I couldn't enjoy posting over there anymore anyway. I just wanted an explanation for my banishment. After 3 and a half years and 15k posts (though most were in the endzone or trolling), i figured they could at least give me an explanation. Never got one though. Most people on here received the same treatment.
