I wouldn't really wanna be in Syria right about now, that's for damn sure.

Honestly, I don't get affected by Tennessee's performances. Doesn't bother me, either way. I like good people at every place and dislike bad people at every place.
After a game, though, I either want an ice cold beer, a stiff Jack and Ginger or a big ol' Fruit Punch/Berry X-Factor Gatorade and my bed, depending on how long the day has been. Watching every highlight show and some DVR'd stuff before putting in my AP ballot a couple of years ago was really tough on those days where I was exhausted. I'd be on the phone or texting/DM tweeting with buddies on other beats or national media, and we'd all be in the same boat, bouncing ideas off each other because we were all exhausted and didn't want to have a really stupid decision or omission.
1. Depends on what happens with RVP. Regardless, I'd love some help on the back end or a dominant holding center mid. Both are needed in a BIG way. I love Song, but I'd like another big hulking center mid type. And much I like Szczęsny in goal, he's still really young, and I'd love if they could snag someone like Hugo Lloris, the keeper at Lyon in France. I really think he's one of the top 5 keepers in the world. REALLY need Sagna and Santos/Gibbs to stay healthy this season, and obviously the Verminator and Koscielny need to stay healthy, too. Obviously, though, another striker or attacking mid will be needed if RVP goes.
2. I actually like the new away kits a lot.
Dempster's a good dude. I want him to use his 5-and-10 rights and make sure he's happy wherever he's going.
If a guy has to leave the Cubs, and I like the guy, I always want him to go to Atlanta — the team I like 359-or-so days a year. But Dempster's just a good dude, so I want him to go wherever he wants to go. He's earned that right.
Oh, wow. It's past 4 a.m. And I always have to wind down for at least an hour before I can fall asleep.
I'll be back on the thread later today. Keep 'em coming.
Today's gonna be a loooooooong day, it seems.
Wes- is it possible to get interviews with behind the scenes support staff of the AD- it would be interesting to see what their day to day activities and responsibilities consist of?
Wes, who gets in the MLB playoffs and why?
What has changed your opinion on Borque?
rewind about 15 years ago....
better movie - Little Big League or Rookie of the Year?
Have you ever interviewed John Ward and would it be possible to see his thoughts on the Vols ?
247 in the last year or so has worked hard to develop the site to where it is today ... what is the vision for the site for the next 3 to 5 years ... any changes you can talk about.
If you could choose between Bryce Harper and Mike Trout to build a team around, which one would you take and why?
When will we find out about the academic eligibility status of the team for this fall? I can't shake the feeling that we are in for a few nasty surprises.
What would you do for a Klondike bar?
How far will the Vols go in basketball this year? Does Stokes go pro after this year?
Would you like to see R.A. Dickey become member of the Vols staff after his career is over?
How long will it take Serrano to return the Vols to baseball glory? (trip to Omaha)
Assuming Pig gets back for the Florida game, who do you see taking the biggest load in punt kick returns?
Pig, Devrin, or CP?
Do you Palardy starts showing some of that ability that made him #1 recruit out of high school, or do we hope Bullock is ready?
1. Peyton's on the short list of worst Heisman snubs, for sure — but I think him going to UT had nothing to do with it. It was just ... his turn.
Depends on what you consider "impact." I think Johnson has more tackles but Maggitt makes more big plays.
