I thought getting away rom ulmer and the Claw ense would do wonders or the redshirt senior. Apparently I was wrong...or was II know how e eryone eels about this kid. I know he recei ed death threats rom some o the stupid, illogical branch o UT ans (By all accounts a growing segment o our an population).The three interceptions on Saturday made me sick as well I was upset beyond words at the kid. "Here we go again," were just some o the words I and many others uttered.But just take a look at what else happened.Two dropped passes. The other? dropped pass came ia Denarious Moore inside the 10 yard line! Inside the 10! In a game we lost by our!Did anyone see Gerald Jones on the ield Did you see him running the wrong routes on three di erent plays I know you saw Crompton o erthrow him when he was wide open, but did you know he wasn't where he was supposed to be on that play Did you know that the inal three plays, which ended up in incompletions, were messed up because o JonesHow about the playcalling inside the i e-yard line when Tennessee needed only six to tie and the extra point to win I was upset about it, too.
our straight rushes up the middle reminded me o the great pumpkin himsel . The last two should ha e been at least a toss sweep play.But you know what I had absolutely enough coach second-guessing when ulmer was here. I had enough whining and crying about the conser ati e nature o a coaching sta that ne er changed We all did. As a matter o act, we cried so much that he inally got the hook.Now we ha e what we ha e. irtually the same exact o ensi e players rom the 117th ranked o ense in 2008 and a new coach promising to take us back to the promised land. That coach has done a great job o bringing in some great reshman talent, albeit raw talent.Nowhere in his contract did it say, "You must win eight games in your irst season," or "You must ha e no less than six wins in any season." You know why his contract didn't state that Because this is not Alabama We don't hold our brand new coaches to such a high standard. We realize there is a time o rebuilding.Did I realize it was going to be a big job o rebuilding Heck no.
I thought the rumors o Tennessee's lack o talent were alse. Bryce Brown, Da id Oku, Marsalis Teague, and Nu'Keese Richardson will help this season, but i you are still expecting a miracle, magic wand type result; keep waiting.This o ensi e line has two walk-on's! TWO! How many SEC schools can claim that I guarantee you it's less than one.So I beg you to gain some perspecti e Just let the non-Tennessee ans continue making un That's completely ine. Ki in brought that on himsel when he tried mercilessly to get Tennessee in the news.This program is still two years away rom being rele ant in the SEC again. Hope or six wins and a Music City Bowl berth this season, se en-to-eight wins in 2010 with a Chick- il-A Bowl berth, and 10 wins or more in 2011 with the sky being the limit that season.That is rebuilding That is exactly where this program is at. That is exactly why Lane Ki in was hired in the irst place to get us rom here to there It's not going to happen o ernight Ki in is not yiddish or Houdini.. ) A Pro essional ootballer is quite accustomed to the act that i he takes o his shirt while celebrating a goal, he will be penalized with a yellow card. There are se eral other regulations related to improper goal celebrations and in light o a recent incident, the Goal Celebration Committee (GCC) has decided to introduce some new rules to add to the existing ones.? 1.1 – A player who decides to run towards the opposition ans and celebrate his goal will be shown a yellow card, regardless o his moti es/intentions.Being a ootballer, the player’s irst task a ter scoring a goal is to locate where the opposition ans are seated.
Once the problem area is identi ied, the player should dash away rom them, as ast as they can.Our research analysts ha e come to the conclusion that it will be irtually impossible or people in the crowd to throw their missiles accurately o er a distance o 100 metres. So in other words, we ha e determined that or their own sa ety, players should be 100 metres away rom the opposition ans be ore they start celebrating.I the re eree eels that a player is not the sa e distance away, it is well within his rights to caution the player.The GCC is well aware that concerns ha e been raised by certain players regarding the act that their ans and team-mates might consider sprinting away rom the opposition ans as a orm o cowardice.I that is the case, then we wholeheartedly sympathize with the player concerned but it must be emphasized that this should be considered as part and parcel o being a modern day ootballer. The player has got to accept this and learn to li e with it. I the player can sprint like Theo Walcott, this shouldn’t be a problem. Howe er, i he is more like Dimitar Berbato , the GCC would recommend him to work with a specialist like Usain Bolt (who has recently taken time o , to pro ide aluable ad ice to ootballers).? 1.2 – I a player slides down on his knees and throws his arms up in the air while in ront o the opposition ans, he will be shown a yellow card.This is considered to be gross misconduct and such beha iour will not be tolerated. It should be noted that the crowd must always be shown respect, regardless o the circumstances.A player should always keep in mind that the crowd has paid or tickets to get inside the stadium and this acts as a sort o lease agreement, whereby the ans are gi en temporary ownership o the stadium or two hours. As part o this agreement they ha e been granted certain pri ileges like shouting obscenities at the players.I a player decides to celebrate in the a orementioned way, it will be considered as a orm o retaliation towards the opposition ans and the player will ha e to su er the consequences as a result. This is considered as retaliation because the player’s action implies that he is trying to get back at the ans by suggesting something like: “you abused me long enough, now look I ha e scored a goal against your team.” That is just rude and disrespect ul to the audience. The GCC would like to irmly remind players that as role models, they should not act in such ways.NOTE: I a player iolates both Rule 1.1 and 1.2 he will be shown two consecuti e yellow cards (meaning a red card) and hence will be dismissed rom the pitch.? or more in ormation and assistance: Contact Emmanuel Adebayor, who is currently acing the music or per orming the improper stunts mentioned abo e and he has now promised ne er to repeat the same mistakes again.Moreo er, to recti y his mistakes he has decided to gi e something back to the society and will be more than willing to help out anyone who has this ‘improper celebration’ syndrome.Besides the pro essional ad ice o Mr.Adebayor, the GCC would also like players to consider the ollowing remedies to get rid o this ‘improper celebration’ condition:? Robotic Dancing – As mentioned earlier, crowds ha e e ery right to abuse players and this shouldn’t be a problem because while on the pitch, players are supposed to act like robots, depri ed o all human emotions.There ore, the best and probably the most rational way to celebrate a ter scoring a goal will be to dance around like a robot.
