Or do they just think we are stupid?
It seems like everything they do is to alienate the small guy. Even the bs they run the media through. I've heard a lot of the stuff you guys go through is more bc of Kiffin than Dooley.
Not Wes, obviously, but do you have a specific complaint? Can't say I know what you're talking about.

Can you clarify your question?
I'd be glad to answer but need to be sure I know what I'm answering.

GO BIG ORANGE!!!
Why exactly are we downvoting a guy for asking a question? Not sure I see anything wrong with the post other than it needing a little clarification.
i took it as he's asking why its so hard for the "small guy" to be able to be as loyal to the team as a "big guy" (donor, etc). at least thats my opinion and how i took it
Communication is not happening here
A couple of points here...correct me if I am wrong but didn't Kiffin have open practices so how did he contribute to the difficulties the media has covering the team? And as far as the university catering to donors over non-donors - welcome to the real world. The University of Tennessee is not a charity.
The University of Tennessee Class of 2012
I understand money makes the world go round but I also understand $50 per seat adds up to some serious coin just as well. I know when it comes to big decisions the Haslems and Thunder Thornton will be the people they call and not us. The thing is without the drones the queen bee dies. While the majority of the burden now will always fall on corporate sponsors you have to remember the people who brought you to where you are and that is the fans and students.
One thing I know the University doesn't understand is the use of TV footage on youtube hype videos. There are some from feelslike98 and some other guys that are just as good as the one the university puts out and they are done by 20 yr olds in their dorm rooms. They do everything they can do to take them down.Who cares? I could see if someone was making money off of it but they're not. To me anything that brings attention to your University that's good should be done.
And for those who know soccer:
