First of all, I missed both post # 3000 and 4000, so I'm gonna make this one count. I have to give a lot of credit to (in alphabetical order) Kevin, Ryan, and Wes for what they bring to this site each and every day. I also have to give shoutouts to other 247 contributors like Barton Simmons, Keith Niebuhr, J.C. Shurbutt and others whose names I can't recall (because there's so many of them!!) for bringing information over here as well.
For all the posters on this site, you have made this an awesome place to discuss news relating to UT athletics, even those whom I've disagreed with. It's great to be able to actually discuss these issues without things turning into a slamfest or worse. I do want to give a special shoutout to tnbear66 and RockyTopATL for organizing the Atlanta get-together before the NC State game, and AtomicCityVol for the t-shirts he made for the game. I've gotten to meet several of you over the last two years, and that was just a cool thing to do. I still have "das boot" from the Biergarten, BTW...
This board has seen a lot of turmoil over the lst two years - the Bruce Pearl saga, the last two seasons under Dooley and the mass exodus of coaches after the 2011 season, the end of the Pat Summitt era, the search for new coaches in baseball, men's basketball, and football. But despite all the dram coming from Knoxville, this board has largely remained supportive of the Vols despite the setbacks, frustrations, and heartbreaks along the way.
If I didn't mention you by name, don't feel left out by any means - I just wanted to give some credit to those people who have gone above and beyond the call to make some of these events a little more memorable.
With a new coach and a new attitude surrounding the football program, it's going to be an exciting 3-5 years watching Coach Jones and this staff working to bring Tennessee football back to its rightful place in the SEC and nation. You might want to bring your popcorn, because it's going to be a wild ride!!

It was great to meet you and hope you make it back to Tennessee, for good, sometime soon. +1

There are only four answers to any question: Yes, No, I don't know, or the Correct Answer.
Congrats, an it was nice meeting you at the pub. +1 on 5000

Thanks, but I'll just be the wingman
I used to think it was "Tnt oak", lol. Congrats on 5000!
Awesome. I project going over on NSD or there about.
Thank you, tntoak, but tnbear deserves all the credit for the ATL get together. I hope we get to do it again sometime soon.
Get yourself back home soon and out of all that ice, snow and cold!
Good to have you here tntoak!
You were there at Ruth's for my sons first game.

+1 x 1000.
I believe I still have a photo or two - I'll have to find them later.
BUTCH IS NOT FOR THE FAINT OF HEART. GO VOLS!
Congrats ACV. You are truly one of the cornerstones of this board. Enjoy your posts immensely and look forward to many more discussions in the future about all things Orange. +1
About half of the people who see the screenname for the first time read it as "tnt oak", the others either see it as "TN to AK" (less than 10%), or some other strange interpretation. I've actually started to change my handles on forums related to gaming to my main gamertag, because that one isn't cryptic at all...
