All the negative nancies got record down votes today, and some of us positive pete's got down voted for telling the negative nancies not to be so damn negative.
To make up for that let's have an upvote party. If you say something positive about Tennessee Football you've got an upvote.

they aren't negative nancies, they are just trolls. But I'm in!
Gotta give you a +1 for the positive energy AND the dancing banana! I don't understand how anyone could be negative on a day like today. After the next couple of years, all aspiring WR will understand the path to the NFL goes through Knoxville.
In addition, there are several other impact players in this class, some very soon and others in years to come. The best thing of all, WE ARE BUILDING TALENTED DEPTH!!!
"Old School"! A strong defense wins championships!
We're Tennessee enough said, but not really...Our Orange kick's @$$ and we still have a power T on the side of our helment.
I gotta say, I am pretty stoked about the DL and WR signings, Wide Receiver U is back, baby!
Thought you had to have a bridge for trolls...A great day in Big Orange Country! Welcome to all the signees for becoming a VFL!

We loaded up on offensive weapons and really addressed areas of need on the DL and in defensive backfield. Excited to see this team hit the field and see what they can do next year.

I gotta believe we are on our way back! I know we missed on a couple but wow still a very nice class. Im just really hoping our o line has gelled and looks better in the run game. And the other teams had better start working their db's cause Wide Receiver U is coming to town!!!
Dooley definitely has the tools to work with now. Let's just win, baby!
We pulled in a great class! I am happy and excited! I can't wait until Dooley starts winning! He has proved he can recruit with the best of them! Now I want him to win! I like Dooley and hope he is here for yrs to come! We also belong to the BEST TN site by far! We are lucky to have a community here full of people who love the Vols and love the discussion! So Go Vols and GoVols247!
I'm really excited to see what our defense can do next year. We have plenty of talented players that are ready to prove themselves: Brian Radolph, Justin Coleman, AJ Johnson, Curt Maggitt, Prentiss Waggner, Jac Smith, Byron Moore, Izaeu Lanier... That's not even mentioning our potentially stellar offense we're fielding next year. Things are looking up in Big Orange Country!
They're not negative nancies; they are realists.
And I'm officially out of upvotes for the day. Everybody help out the upvote party.
Give me facts to back up that our program is not heading in the right direction and that we will not compete next year. Do that and I will call you a realist. Until then you don't deserve that title.
im in . great day to be a vol fan +1 with what i have left
I'll give you some realist facts.
1. When we were healthy last year our offense ranked number 1 in 3rd down completions.
2. Before Hunter and Bray got hurt our offense was one of the best in the SEC if not the best.
3. ESPN voted Justin Hunter and Tyler Bray as 2 of the top 5 most dangerous offensive players in the SEC last year.
4. Our defense made massive strides last year finishing 28th in the nation in Total Defense. This was with a D Coordinator who ran a fairly simple defense. We will only be better next year.
5. Our O Line massively improved in their pass defense last year.
6. Last season was derailed by injuries. We did not have depth to be able to withstand any injury, let alone injuries to our 2 best offensive players.
7. This signing class gives up depth for WR, Secondary, D line, and QB which we massively lacked last year.
8. Due to the massive depletion of depth true realists all pointed to year 3 of Dooley's regime to see big improvement, and I firmly believe we will.
Dooley overcame several obstacles to put together a solid recruiting class that addresses the team's biggest needs and gives some serious firepower to the passing game. With a new DC in Sunseri, the sky's the limit for this team in 2012 and beyond. Go Vols!!
You are quickly becoming one of my favorite posters because of this thread! +1 for all ur posts!
"Count it down with me. Five, four, three, two, one.
The national champion is clad in Big Orange!"
+1 Nice Post
Up the board
Tennessee once went unscored upon which I can't even do on Xbox. Go vols!
Hey thanks. I just can't stand it when people try and validate their poor researched, pessimistic opinions by saying they are realists. A realist is someone who sees things the way they really are (and can prove it), not somebody who hates life and has nothing good to say about anything!
+1 I'm in. Nice work to 247 for keeping us updated with breaking info +1. Nice work coaching staff for getting us back to WR U!!!
Not only is WR U back, but we got some great additions to the RB spot and DB and DL help....I can't wait to watch the tennessee offense this year, but i know CSS will have the Vol D lookin great!
