I didn't find anything on Minnesota's violations for football and the punishment.

But saying everyone cheats is not an excuse.

didnt say it was an excuse, just said that you cant use that to lessen a team's accomplishments. If everyone cheats, then it evens out, and you can base rankings/standings on their results. If Bama was the ONLY team in the history of college football to cheat, then yes, their records wouldnt mean shit, but they arent...


I cant believe I am defending Bama so much... back to the topic at hand.

my updated season outlook:

California Knoxville, Tenn. very tough opener... they are really bad matchup for Tenn. - L
Air Force Knoxville, Tenn. W
Florida Knoxville, Tenn. - W (tough game, but Meyes offense did jack against us last year... will come down to if UT can do ANYTHING on offense. If we score 17, we win.)
Marshall (Homecoming) Knoxville, Tenn. - W
Memphis Memphis, Tenn. - W
Georgia Athens, Ga. - L
Alabama Knoxville, Tenn. - W
South Carolina Columbia, S.C. - another close one... L
LSU Knoxville, Tenn. - L
Arkansas Fayetteville, Ark. - W
Vanderbilt Nashville, Tenn. - W (this wont happen again, not with SuperCutler gone)
Kentucky Knoxville, Tenn. - W

8-4, shitty

jesus, about time that CFN did their SEC preview: http://www.collegefootballnews.com/sec/2006_Previews/2006_SEC_Preview.htm


CONFERENCE OUTLOOK
The SEC might have been mediocre last year by its own high standards, but it’s back to being the best conference in the nation and it’s not even close. Even so, everyone appears to be a year away from really, really, really being good. Urban Meyer is recruiting his tail off at Florida on his way to creating USC East, SEC champ Georgia is nasty again despite needing to reload, Tennessee will quickly rebound with David Cutcliffe as offensive coordinator, and LSU and Auburn belong in the discussion of the five best teams in America. Alabama and South Carolina won’t do what they did last year, but they’ll still be solid. Arkansas will be back to its old bowl bound ways, and Ole Miss and Mississippi State will be much improved.


2. Tennessee
Predicted record: 9-3 Conf. record: 6-2
Best Player: OT Arron Sears, Sr.

Offense -
Tennessee had way too much talent to average 326 yards and 18.6 points per game last year, and changes were made in the coaching staff bringing in former Ole Miss head coach and Tennessee offensive coordinator David Cutcliffe to handle the offense again. Expect a night-and-day turnaround with a speedy, veteran receiving corps, a talented workhorse running back in Arian Foster along with an inexperienced, but lightning fast group of reserves, and a huge line that should be rock solid despite the return of only one starter. The big question is at quarterback where Erik Ainge has to live up to the promise of a solid 2004 season and not play like the shaky sophomore he was last year.

Defense - For all the problems the team had last year, the defense couldn't be blamed finishing sixth in the nation allowing fewer than 300 yards per game and second against the run allowing 82 yards per outing. Now the hope has to be for all the top recruiting classes to pay off in a big way with six of the starters on the front seven needing to be replaced including the entire linebacking corps. Five players with starting experience return to the secondary, but it's just an above-average group. The real overall concern, along with the new starters up front, is with size. This isn't a big defense by Tennessee standards, but it's very fast and full of talented prospects.

This season will be a success if …
the Vols win the SEC East. After last year, anything less than an appearance in the SEC title game will leave the sour taste of 2005 in everyone's mouth. The schedule, athleticism, and fire are all in place for a good season.


schedule??? Florida, UGA, LSU, Bama, Cal??

Can't wait for the season to start. That Cal game is going to be huge.

If UT loses, then the fans will be pissed, obviously. But a win will be awesome later on in the season when Cal emerges in the Pac-10.

SEC Game of the Week

California at Tennessee 5:30 pm EST ESPN Saturday, September 2nd
Why to Watch: Florida State vs. Miami is the marquee game and everyone will be watching Notre Dame battle Georgia Tech, but this will likely be the most important battle of week one. If the Pac 10 really wants to be taken seriously by everyone east of the Rocky Mountains, this is a must win for Cal. The Bears are better than the Volunteers. They have more offensive firepower, better running backs, better linebackers, and the all-around talent to be in the hunt for the national title. However, Cal hasn't won a really, really big game since USC half-assed it in the 2003 loss. Jeff Tedford's program could use a splashy victory to get the national respect it's been so close to cementing for the last few years. If you believe everything you read, Tennessee is being considered just a shade better than Temple after an overblown 5-6 season, but it has to come up with the opening day home win to ease the pressure off Phil Fulmer and his staff with the Florida showdown in two weeks. A win by the Vols would show that things are back to normal in Knoxville.
Why California Might Win: It's the better team. Tennessee can be back to being Tennessee and it still might mean the Bears will come away with the win. The jury is still out on Vol QB Erik Ainge and whether or not he can be a consistent enough passer to be a difference maker in a game like this. He'll be under pressure from the start with the Vol offensive line still a work in progress after trying to get tougher and more physical with a stepped up off-season regimen. The improvement might not matter with All-America DT Brandon Mebane and the the Cal line good enough to control the trenches. There's also rebuilding being done on the Vol defensive front seven. That's not a plus with Marshawn Lynch and the Cal running game certain to be solid right off the bat.
Why Tennessee Might Win: Cal's most impressive road win in the Tedford era came against ....um, uh ... there were a few nice victories against average Arizona State teams, and that's about it. The Bears have gone a mediocre 14-8 on the road over the last four years with most of the wins coming against the basement Pac 10 teams. Is the team ready to step up to the big boy table and win in a place like Neyland Stadium? This is still Tennessee at home, and it's still full of pro prospects and enough talent to beat anyone in America.
Who to Watch: Is Ainge really going to be better now that David Cutcliffe is the offensive coordinator? Yeah, but he'll also get help from an improved receiving corps that should struggle a bit after losing starting corner Tim Mixon for the year with a knee injury. There's no plan B this year if Ainge stinks, so if he's not on, the panic sirens will go off. ... Cal's backup situation is far better. Nate Longshore was finally announced as the starter on Tuesday with the broken leg suffered in last year's season opener fully healed. That doesn't mean he'll play the whole game with last year's starter, Joe Ayoob, improved enough to be in the hunt for playing time.
What Will Happen: This should be fantastic. Tennessee will play far better than it did over the second half of last year, but Cal will be too consistent and too strong on both sides of the ball with the ground game taking over late.
CFN Prediction: California 27 ... Tennessee 24 ... Line: Tennessee -2
Must See Rating: (5 skip the birth of your first born - 1 Pants Off, Dance Off) ... 5

I am back in town from the game... and oh, we back...



fucking amazing, NEVER expected that ever. Neyland hasnt been that loud in about 6 years, I think all the fans had built up anger from last year, it was fucking nuts.

Meachem FINALLY showed what he could do and Ainge looked really good. Defense was totally dominating, made Tedford their bitch... Great fucking game


Cal fans made a good showing, met a lot of them and they all said they had a great time, best college gameday environment they had ever seen. Got a few places to stay if I go out there for the game next year haha.

Quote :
""We've never seen anything like that. That's a pretty impressive atmosphere, there's no doubt about it," Cal coach Jeff Tedford said. "The environment they create gives Tennessee a real home field advantage." "


Quote :
""We all felt disrespected," Ainge said. "This game tonight wasn't just for Tennessee versus California. It was for the South versus the West Coast, the SEC versus the Pac-10." "


haha, there were almost more S-E-C chants than overrated chants

Quote :
""It's a static noise," Longshore recalled. "You can't hear anything. You go up and down the line and your running backs can't hear, your wide receivers can't hear, your tight ends can't hear. Nobody can hear. Nobody."

As the clock was winding down, Tennessee fans chanted, "SEC! SEC!" and "Over-rated! Over-rated!"

Said Longshore: "That stung."
"


Quote :
"Longshore picked up his travel bag and walked down a long corridor of Neyland Stadium, fans still peeking around the orange tarp that covers the players' exit from the field.

"SEC! SEC!," they chanted, still in his ear an hour after it ended.

"Four-and-a-half hours," Longshore said of the pending charter. "Too long."


"

Well that weak-ass dynasty as you call them USC just played another SEC team and DEMOLISHED them.

So much for missing Bush and Leinart. This team is still damn good.

Quote :
"Turned off the Tennessee-Cal game somewhere around 28-0. Geez Louise, what a difference a year makes for Tennessee. QB Erik Ainge was almost as unbelievable as his receivers were dominant. Or, as Cal's defense was awful at tackling. Sorry to the Berkeley Bunch, but you can't claim to have one of the nation's best defenses when you give up 514 yards in the season opener.
One game removed from a 5-6 season, Tennessee's fearless leader, Phillip Fulmer, now looks like Einstein (well, a clean shaven, grumpy Einstein wearing a Tennessee ball cap) for bringing back former Vol offensive coordinator David Cutcliffe. Meanwhile, Ainge is the early frontrunner for this year's inaugural Brady Quinn Trophy, awarded to the junior quarterback that turns his entire college career around in the first month of the season.
