    Message board fodder on 24/7 saying students are planning on a walk out during the UMASS game

    I knew the 60's and 70's was good for something

    I don't think there will be enough students at the game on Saturday to notice if they did a walk out.

    My first thought. Student section is usually 3/4 empty on these bye games.

    that'll help the players and recruiting and get our ugly asses on espn again. I don't think anybody up there can make a good decision on anything right now. Maybe the Hill is alive with the sound of music and smell of meth.

    Pretty funny they think anyone cares. Are the freshmen organizing this? Anyone that's been there longer than a year should know better.

    If they do it in a fashion that is noticeable that will make waves that the school will down play but will be a defining moment down the road. Having said that, I don't they will pull it off.

    I would rather be embarrassed by a Wyoming type loss with a sense of funeral relief than be embarrassed by students or fans in a group walking out. Bad for the program and university. It's close to working itself out, so just let it. We need this roster the way its headed when we start over and shit like this can end up making another transition even more difficult. People, including recruits, forget losses because most of them lose in HS. They don't get over being embarrassed to wear orange due to shit like this.

    These UT students have never seen a good UT football team. Why TF do they care ?

    Nah. It's not even close to sorting itself out yet. Show your frustration in a way the big money people understand

    Embarrassing to the university? Sure. But who is really the causing the embarrassment? Ya, blame the kids who don't want to settle for being milked for money for a program that only goes through the motions. Definitely their fault for not just staying on board.

    I just don't agree with y'all here that this makes a point or would be a factor in anything besides more negative attention and national embarrassment. Losing a game is one thing. I don't want to see it happen. If you like more misery than necessary then by all means, stand and walk with them.

    I'd rather they just stay home. Unless they spell out "FIRE BUTCH" with those card signs they are walking out on the players as much as they are Butch as far as anyone can tell. It is not an effective way to convey the message.

    I doubt it happens. I'm betting the majority stay home.

    Exactly. Don't go. If you don't like the coach, don't buy tickets. Don't have a walkout on ESPN replayed and hurt the program. Not sure why anyone would want to see that.

    An empty stadium at kickoff is much more effective than an empty stadium in the 2nd Quarter. Just don't go, don't give them your money.

    Same can be said for staying home. It is why I say go for it if you want. You gotta let the administration know you hate the shitshow going on over there now.

    Does it look bad? Not as bad as that goddamn trashcan.

    This is actually far better, of course. Just don't pay (and they actually have to pay now which is ridiculous).
