NickGrinnell:: he ran the ball very well
GridOrange:: Anyone got the MS
State game on in the background. It's on CSS right now.
Vol12:: Larkins is
his own worst enemy
NickGrinnell:: Ced looks great
running the ball dont he
JefferyStewart:: He's a good change of pace back and
that's a big reason Tinsley is slated for D
tnvols4life:: I hope Banks isn't
the next huge talent who languishes due to lack of a home position
hehe, that broadcast doesnt quite make it to cable in Arizona
JB will be all-SEC, im just not sure where
Vol12:: Are they serious about
moving Tinsley to D?
NickGrinnell:: no CSS in 'Zona?
GridOrange:: You mean
you don't have CSS
tnvols4life:: I keep hearing that Tinsley hates the idea
of playing D, is that true?
raiderdj:: but they still replay ASU kicking
Nebraska 16-0 a few yers ago on a regular basis hehe
NickGrinnell:: if he
doesnt work at WR, im not sure what else they can do
SandmanUT:: Mrs Sandman
says hello to the room...
JefferyStewart:: He hates idea of sitting on the
bench even more
Vol12:: Tinsley told me he hated it
GridOrange:: Tell her
DrBill:: Tinsley won't be playing D! He is going home for the
NickGrinnell:: since you said that Ron, i got the same
JefferyStewart:: there's not enough carries for TBs if Riggs comes
tnvols4life:: Tinsley is leaving the Vols?
NickGrinnell:: if Riggs is
cleared, the carries will come off of Larkins I would guess
will be interesting to see... if Weyman makes the team, it will be in Banks best
interest to help Weyman become #2 so he can focus on WR... Banks obviously has
the athletic ability to play WR
DrBill:: No, no! Just going home for the
NickGrinnell:: he loves fireworks
Dar's a brewwwwwwwwwww happen wift dat dar. Brett...
GridOrange:: I love
Volette:: Grid...........not sure if you said earlier, but why
are your messages showing as a lighter color than the rest
DT's mom is a great woman
GridOrange:: Are they Orange
tnvols4life:: So what does going home for the 4th have to do with not
playing D, if anything?
JefferyStewart:: Tinsley will have to get tougher and
hold on to the ball to play at UT
GridOrange:: They are Orange on
Volette:: no.......light blue/grey
DrBill:: She flat has a tough row
to hoe. Working full time, going to school! Just have to admire her for doing
all she does.
GridOrange:: Hmmm, just me?
raiderdj:: how late will the
chat run Nick? I need to head home... takes me about an hour
Michelle does a lot for her kids... super lady though
DrBill:: Jeffrey, same thing they said about Travis Stephens. Some said
it even after he became the leading single season rusher in UT
NickGrinnell:: oh just until everyone gets tired of me, or i would
say 9:00 or so
SandmanUT:: Raider where u's beees in Ariz
yep..............just you................now my messages are highlighted in
orange when I see them
raiderdj:: I'm in Phoenix Sandman
CHVol:: Any idea
on when the DA will say something on the alledged rape case?
You're right and Tinsley could still turn it around
Vol12:: Personally I
think Fulmer is just trying to motivate Derrick with the threat of moving to
raiderdj:: gotta run, see you guys in a bit
NickGrinnell:: that is very
well the case
SandmanUT:: Brother out there couple weeks ago
I've been to Tempe and parts around... Actually Phoenix too.
login from home actually from remote and scroll to catch up
GridOrange:: Oops, 21-14 TN
NickGrinnell:: see you
volfan911:: i was really expecting more of DT by now
volfan911:: but i
understand his setbacks
NickGrinnell:: his lack of injury stamina has hurt
GridOrange:: Ouch. I don't think that will work.
Not sure how this thing does on re-entry
NickGrinnell:: nice article on the front page Jeff
be right back.
SandmanUT:: Hey dat dar Vol12 had big do'ns at BK...home made
Ice Cream...did U'ons get any of dat dar Ice cream
JefferyStewart:: thanx nick
NickGrinnell:: i want
to hear some seasonal projections for 03
NickGrinnell:: ive heard mine about as much as I want
me4ut:: Do ya'll think Brooks sees the field this year beyond special
teams and is it Simon or Peace at MLB?
SandmanUT:: yes on
raiderdj:: okay guys, connected on the home box, now to run
tnvols4life:: I am certain Brooks will get some playing time
I think there's been something of a contest of wills between Tinsley and the
coaches about moving to WR
NickGrinnell:: Peace at first and maybe Simon
raiderdj:: see ya in a bit, ill be AFK
NickGrinnell:: dee ya dj
JefferyStewart:: Brooks is too legit to
NickGrinnell:: too legit to sit.. awesome
GridOrange:: If you leave,
you lose the history.
SandmanUT:: he's a young Al Wilson
legit to sit so we will be rotating a TON of backers??????????
and a nose for the football
Volette:: Bed time story time for little
GridOrange:: I'll see if there is anyway
I can archive the chats
DrBill:: Naw! Brooks is much, much bigger than Al
SandmanUT:: I know Bill but he's got that drive
Agree Al was a safety in high school
SandmanUT:: that want to be there for
the kill ..on every play
NickGrinnell:: If DB is half the leader Al was, we
are in for a treat
DrBill:: Yes, but he doesn't like to be compared to Al! So
let's not do it. We don't want to p.o. a guy that big and
NickGrinnell:: very true
tnvols4life:: It appeared from the
article in the KNS recently that he has the leadership
don't know that he'll be a great leader but by example
DrBill:: Sandman, what
time did y'all get back to Powell yesterday?
NickGrinnell:: he will have to
JefferyStewart:: Al would get in your
SandmanUT:: Al grew into a MLB..but had that drive ...I know ..and he
will make his own mark..but, he will be compared by most fans to see if he does
have that drive or the eye of the tiger
NickGrinnell:: Simon, Gaither,
Mitchell and Mitchell will have that respect for most of DB's career
ok, next big topic: which of the big "3" receivers see significant time and
what's the deal with Grimes?
NickGrinnell:: even money on Meach and
SandmanUT:: about 8 PM
JefferyStewart:: Grimes becomes an H Back
SandmanUT:: Jason Swain at first
JefferyStewart:: swain makes the best
start Meach comes on later
DrBill:: Wow, y'all stayed all
day. I was home and had washed both cars by 5:00!
GridOrange:: Evening Huntmann
Huntmann1:: how are yall
me4ut:: Meach gonna get qualified????????
JefferyStewart:: It looks good
Huntmann1:: what about
NickGrinnell:: Hunt you have any problems
tnvols4life:: any news on
the DB from Rock Hill, Heffney I believe, is he gonna qualify?
looks like everyone now but Hefney and McDaniels
DrBill:: Sandman got to
talk to Spurrier Sat. night.
SandmanUT:: nope on Hefnye
Hefney is going to have trouble
Huntmann1:: no, i wasnt logged
SandmanUT:: Yes I got to Steve
Heffney not likely from what I hear
SandmanUT:: at the Garden Plaza last
Huntmann1:: what QB do you think that we will get this
tnvols4life:: We gonna place Heffney?
Huntmann1:: i say one of the
top 3 and wolke
me4ut:: shame about Hefney......small but
SandmanUT:: he was in town for the 40th JCScience Hill HSchool
SandmanUT:: Hefney is a whale of a punt returner
JefferyStewart:: A good cover man too
NickGrinnell:: we needed him
for special teams
lgvol:: Good evening gents
NickGrinnell:: lg how are you
GridOrange:: Howdy LG
word about who might commit prior to September?
SandmanUT:: the people I talk
to in Rock Hill think he's a Big Deal and when he makes it back to UT..we are
going to be please big time
lgvol:: Well but wet up here in
NickGrinnell:: i am expecting a QB to make a jump in Sept or early
lgvol:: any idea which QB?
NickGrinnell:: we need a great, electric
NickGrinnell:: Patton i hope
NickGrinnell:: he has the
volfan911:: i always thought Greer had the footwork to be a great
Huntmann1:: what are the chances on brohm
NickGrinnell:: David Wolke wouldnt be a bad pickup
tnvols4life:: It appears from the front page article that Wolke has
NickGrinnell:: Brohm- if Bush comes on at Louisville, he will look
volfan911:: i played against him in high school and he juked me on a 70
yard TD run so i know first hand
me4ut:: I thought early on we had no chance
at Brohm.......hope I'm wrong!
NickGrinnell:: if he passes up ND, hey here we
NickGrinnell:: we are a solid third on Brohm's list
lgvol:: Have you
guys head about Lamon Williams a Jr Wrfrom up here at
JefferyStewart:: Vols may have shot at Xavier Lee no matter
what you hearothewise
DrBill:: Xavier is from Florida, isn't
NickGrinnell:: X sounds like he is serious about being "wide
NickGrinnell:: yes he is from FL
lgvol:: Sounds like we are in
Decent shape with the QB's
SandmanUT:: no but I have heard of Lamont Williams
from Rock Hill High School, in Rock Hill SC
JefferyStewart:: Right the
me4ut:: Is AS " toast" or is everything
gonna work out ok?
lgvol:: This kid was a sophomore all-american in Student
Sports last year
NickGrinnell:: help me, who is AS
lgvol:: Antwan Stewart?
SandmanUT:: Atwan Stuart
me4ut:: AS = Stewart ! and no, I don't mean Jeffery!!!!
DrBill:: I see where Warner
Agee rated our DEs as 4th in the SEC. Hopes they rise to the top. What do y'all
JefferyStewart:: Thanks Althnough I have been in trouble at a college
NickGrinnell:: things should be okay if .... things should be
JefferyStewart:: just not the same trouble as Antwan
Huntmann1:: xavier lee goes to high school near my high school taht i
graduated from a year ago
tnvols4life:: haven't we all
played him in the playoffs last year
me4ut:: I think Parys will be AA before
volfan911:: i agree me4
NickGrinnell:: Hey Hunt what do you
think of X
volfan911:: he's got that drive you like to see in a
JefferyStewart:: Is X man the real deal Huntmann
who do you guys think other than our own guys..is the best at really knowing
what's what in the SEC.,,Athlon's, etc..you make the call..who has the SEC down
and really knows their stuff
volfan911:: and he certainly looks the
NickGrinnell:: Parys has a tremendous amount of intensity
a little small right now, but he's all muscle
volfan911:: and he's cat
volfan911:: got that instict about him on the field
are comparing him to Leonard!
Huntmann1:: oh he is amazing, during the middle
of the 1st half it was tied at 22 but then he just EXPLODED
Parys is a perfect rush LB whicgh is another reason to run 3-4
would compare him to the ath that banks is, however he has a better arm in my
DrBill:: Is Parys an lb or a de! Warner has him at
JefferyStewart:: I know Ut thinks he's the best out there in terms of two
Huntmann1:: oh for sure he is
JefferyStewart:: I think he's a
hybird like LL
Huntmann1:: i just dont know if that will fit our style of
JefferyStewart:: maybe grows into DE
NickGrinnell:: John Long has been
beefing Parys up this summer
GridOrange:: Evening Vtown
NickGrinnell:: first problem of the night
Yep! Parys is a little small compared to our other DEs.
CHVol:: Don't think he can make up his mind
Huntmann1:: what is j long doing to make sure we dont get all kinds of
NickGrinnell:: i think yoga was a good start
is small but he is just a blur as he zips by Offensive Tackles, if he can play
the run he will be amazing
me4ut:: What can anyone do about ligaments?????
Can you make em stronger??????
JefferyStewart:: DEs in good shape don't
forget McBride the best weakside end the vols have ever signed from high
PaVol:: Wasn't L. Little a lightweight and he smoked
off the end
JefferyStewart:: Little was light but he did most of his smoking
NickGrinnell:: i think ligaments basically can be more flexible but
NickGrinnell:: right Doc?
PaVol:: That's what I meant
me4ut:: Great speculation on Poe in article but do ya'll think
Chavis will turn him loose???????
tnvols4life:: My physical therapist told me
all I could do was strengthen the muscles around them to offer some protection,
but that was back in the dark ages of knee surgery
kidding Little was DE at Tn until senior year when he moved to MLB and wasn't
DrBill:: Well, not being a MD, but one who played a lot of
football, baseball, basketball, & track, I believe the more you exercise
them, the tougher they will be. Flexibility, however, would seem to be the best
NickGrinnell:: I think the MSU game was one of the more boring in the
NickGrinnell:: thats what I thought
JefferyStewart:: They're advancing surgery all the time some guys coming
off Tommy John surgery are throwing 5 MFH more after surgery
Remember, that's just opinion from a journeyman--not an md.
tnvols4life:: yeah, 1983 was the dark ages of surgery compared to now.
What they accomplish now is nothing short of amazing
me4ut:: Here's a good
one: Anybody think we can find somebody besides Kesling???????
if you had your cartilages removed in Nov. 1958?
NickGrinnell:: i believe
there are suppliements that can help with muscle flexibility
Vol12:: J Long
said they looked really hard to see if they were doing or not doing anything to
contribute to the injuries and they felt there was nothing that could be
tnvols4life:: did they have orthopedic surgery in
1958, or did they just carve on you with a sharp rock?
me4ut:: V12 - Maybe I
missed it but was Long gonna share the bench and time info on Vol Access or did
ya'll decide against?
JefferyStewart:: They hit you over the head with a
blunt rock first
NickGrinnell:: fellas the bride-to-be says hello
I've got most of the numbers, but haven't gotten them off paper and on electrons
tnvols4life:: greetings to the future Mrs.
me4ut:: Nick -- What's his
DrBill:: Actually, my surgery was the
prototype for removing the use of leg lenth casts and making you get up and walk
on it the day of surgery. That was unheard of in 1958.
GridOrange:: Hi Wife
to be of Nickaroo
volwall:: I heard DrBill performed thesurgery on
Vol12:: with his teeth
tnvols4life:: that was amazingly
progressive back then
DrBill:: Naw! It was with my fingernails.
Had a good nurse in Bert
JefferyStewart:: Doc I played when they believed
tape was good for anything Tape him up and get him back in
me4ut:: Ok, nobody
seems to want to touch my Kesling question but while he's ok for BB, he doesn't
"do it" for me for FB...comments?
DrBill:: It was very progressive for that
day & time. Usually, it took 5 to 6 months to get the leg back to being half
way normal, but I played in a basketball game 3 weeks after surgery! But, they
say one has to have a brain to feel pain.:-)
NickGrinnell:: i wish Mike Keith
would have been chosen
lgvol:: I'm with you ME...Bob doesn't do
NickGrinnell:: i love his excitement during game, just my
tnvols4life:: I was such a John Ward fan I am not sure I can offer an
unbiased opinion on Bob. I know him and he is a very nice man, but I don't care
for him as an announcer.
NickGrinnell:: i like Bob personally
kddenn:: Dr. Bill, was it by any chance done at Campbell
me4ut:: oops, don't get me wrong, have met and visited
with Kesling may times, I just wish we'd go a different direction
volwall:: Do you actually think that you can get BK removed? I
Vol12:: Nah, kesling will be the guy until he
JefferyStewart:: Ward was one of the last of a great and dying
breed I guess that's one reason I like Larry Munson
DrBill:: Jeffrey, tape
was great--just like duct tape now:-)! When I was in high school, I had a roll
of tape on each ankle, each knee, and both elbows. I had to have our rhb button
my chinstrap for me if it came loose.
me4ut:: I don't think we could ..... I
do like Priest's contribution!
tnvols4life:: I can only guess the Mike Keith
saw the handwriting on the wall and moved on the the Titans
im sure that was it
volwall:: Priest is excellent
NickGrinnell:: Mike is really exciting to watch
no! Campbell was the proponent of the leg length casts. It was done by R.
Beverly Ray! He was way ahead of the md times.
NickGrinnell:: listen to,
me4ut:: I liked that old message board that Mike Keith had for a while
tnvols4life:: I used to love sports talk with Mike back when I still
lived in Knoxville
DrBill:: Mike knew he didn't have a chance. He told me
that he tried to get DAD to return his call when JW announced his retirement,
but never got the return call.
JefferyStewart:: I've got to call the Graham
brothers for an interview Let's do this again I loved it
is a shame, I think Mike would have been the better choice
of DAD, now that he's leaving, think we'll ever get that game at Bristol Motor
Speedway with VT???
NickGrinnell:: ill talk to ya tomorrow Jeff
GridOrange:: Thanks Jeffery. Cya soon.
DrBill:: Wait a minute
Jeffrey! Nick is the one who should be hurrying out of here. Us old folks can
stick around and talk a lot longer:-)!
oh come on Doc
tnvols4life:: I think the
Bristol game would be an amazing event
NickGrinnell:: it would draw a big
DrBill:: Well, if I had my bride to be close by, I would want to be out
to the Redbird game (Smokies in your case); the Fairgrounds riding rides; the
Zoo looking at the Pandas; Tunica watching people throw their money away; or
something like that.
me4ut:: It would set a record....what did they figure?
tnvols4life:: I am sure both schools would make a huge payday
off that event
NickGrinnell:: oh yes
tnvols4life:: I really don't see a
downside to a one time event at BMS
NickGrinnell:: im with
NickGrinnell:: great money
GridOrange:: I'd pay to see it.
me4ut:: How old do ya'll think littletx is?????? I'm guessing
tnvols4life:: We could sign a home and home with VT and make them give us
there home game for BMS
NickGrinnell:: 13 or 14
NickGrinnell:: if Dollar
Doug couldn't do it no one can
tnvols4life:: Funny I was guessing pre teen,
12 at max
GridOrange:: Howdy OneUT
oneutvol:: Hello all
think Little is quite young indeed.
me4ut:: funny to see littletx and
Ghengis: a teen and a fifty year old (soon to be!)
oneutvol:: Grid thanks for
DrBill:: Look, I made all the folks mad on the Summitt trying to
talk them out of a game at Bristol. First of all, as big as that racetrack is,
do you think you could ever see much down on the field. In addition, they would
have to tear up the entire infield. How long do you think it would take to get
all the rocks and debris out of the ground. How long do you think it would take
you to get back to k'town or someplace where they have motels? Neyland is the
No. 1 venue for college football. Please don't make me lose a day on the campus
especially since we only get 6 or 7 of them there per year. No to Bristol
tnvols4life:: that is the fun of this kind of format, it creates
funny discussions that would likely never happen in "real
NickGrinnell:: i am not sure we would draw what they think would be 150
NickGrinnell:: that is a lot of people
me4ut:: Hey! BMS would only be
considered if it was an AWAY GAME! I agree Dr Bill!
Briston only works if VT gives up their home game, I don't want to give up a day
at Neyland either
GridOrange:: One You are very welcome.
Obviously, everyone here is a supporter of the site and for that we TOO - THANK
DrBill:: We will have more participants when the word gets
lgvol:: You are da man Grid
me4ut:: Is DAD!A a premium subscriber?
NickGrinnell:: everybody spread the word for next week
emailed him about tonight and didnt get an answer at home when i
tnvols4life:: This has been great fun, Mrs. vols4life (a Ga native) is
not as excited about it as I am, but I will serve my penance in silence because
this has been worth it
oneutvol:: Who might show up in the next few
GridOrange:: Doc - I agree. This is a cool feature and as interest
picks back up, so will the traffic.
DrBill:: Would Va. Tech be willing to
give up a game now that they are members of the vaunted ACC.
this is tenative- David Wolke, me, Demonte Bolden, me, Elixx
tnvols4life:: I was so hoping Miami would turn them down, that would
have been poetic justice, ho well
NickGrinnell:: VA tech is going to slide in
tnvols4life:: I am guessing that "me" will not be
tentative, the others would be the tentative part
NickGrinnell:: its not like
playing Temple and Rutgers each week
me4ut:: I think the ACC has screwed the
pooch and have made a mess for themselves........
DrBill:: What is really
ironic is VTbeing part of the law suit but then jumping as quickly as they were
tnvols4life:: As bad as Clemson has been lately, they are much better
than most of the Big East
me4ut:: Who the heck is RockyTopNewsStaff???
DrBill:: Well, it is
only 61 days! Soon to be 60! I'm glad Bert and I got in our preseason practice
this past weekend. I'm glad you and Robin and Renee joined us.
DrBill:: I think that is Jeffrey!
tnvols4life:: living in ACC
country I have been overwhelmed with this expansion story all summer, I can't
turn on local sports talk without hearing about it
me4ut:: Hey Boss! Nick is
doing a great job! (Nick I expect a check in the mail!)
is Camille. she is the Assoc Pub at RTN
NickGrinnell:: tomorrow my
tnvols4life:: Hello Camile, we all love Nick and think he is
DrBill:: Ohhhhh! Sorry bout Jeffrey comment! Hello
Vol12:: I hear Camille is pretty great too....
who is RTNStaff
raiderdj:: back, survived the Phoenix traffic once again...
RockytopNewsStaff:: Hey guys..remember I work with him every day so
don't make his head too big
DrBill:: Since the boss is not Jeffrey, we love
NickGrinnell:: glad you are back
me4ut:: Anybody care to
speculate on DL signees????????
NickGrinnell:: i am hoping DeMario Pressley
will jump on board... might be a reach though
DrBill:: raiderdj, we had one
great year in Arizona and one miserable year. The great one was '99 and the
horrible one was '00!
tnvols4life:: wish I knew, but I want lots of big, fast
guys who don't like pot, love to study, have great attitudes off the field and
lousy attitudes on the field
NickGrinnell:: that is in the recruiting packets
word for word that they give prospects
loved the trip to zona in 99, stayed in Sedona before the game and enjoyed
Pheonix for the event
me4ut:: Speaking of DL - Mondre gonna be a force?????
Does he want to be??????
GridOrange:: It'd be nice to have a better feel for
recruiting this year early. Last year was good but it came on too late to
NickGrinnell:: he CAN be a force, not sure if he wants to or
raiderdj:: yeah, wait 'til the new stadium opens in two years... Fiesta
Bowl will finally have a state of the art facility
oneutvol:: Which player
will come out of no where and be a star?
tnvols4life:: I would love for
Mondre to finally play like it matters
DrBill:: Grid and Robin, Bert and I
all went to Sedona the day after the '99 game. What a beautiful place.
NickGrinnell:: hey DJ im sure they are excited about those Cards
Bill Grimes! Just so I can so "told you so" to AV!
CHVol:: What about Cody
Douglas? How much do you think he will play?
me4ut:: I think CD plays a
raiderdj:: hehe Cards? were still waiting to get a Pro team
NickGrinnell:: if Sean Young aint on the ball, Cody will
NickGrinnell:: Emmitt played for a pro team
tnvols4life:: My father
and I made the National Championship game a father son trip. Spend 3 days in
Sedona before the event drinking beer, grilling out and hiking around the area,
Sedona is almost as beautiful as E. Tennessee
me4ut:: Sean Young concerns me
DrBill:: Well, I would say you already have one at ASU but their
fortunes haven't been too good lately.
NickGrinnell:: if Sean doesn't stand
tall, Cody will
tnvols4life:: Oline has no excuse not to be awesome this
NickGrinnell:: i got a good question for you guys...
NickGrinnell:: who overpaid for national championship gear right after
NickGrinnell:: dont be shy
DrBill:: The Oline had better be
awesome this year. Casey can't stand another one like last
tnvols4life:: Hand raised!
DrBill:: I did!
CHVol:: I did and I
would be happy to do it again.....SOON!
oneutvol:: Got A Hat
Easier question would be who didn't
raiderdj:: ASU will definitely be back up
this year though... a shot at winning the Pac-10... kid Walter is a stud at
QB... and Dirk Koeter knows how to coach
DrBill:: I still am. Whenever I see
something with '98 on it, I buy it.
NickGrinnell:: Doc i bought a NC tie that
is one of the ugliest i have ever seen
tnvols4life:: I have my ticket stub
framed with a picture from the game, it is my prized possession
following the local team is how i originally heard the most about Weyman...
well, the team in Tucson anyway, U of A... Mackovic was early on
NickGrinnell:: i will sport it at some point thise season
raiderdj:: but when things got ugly at the end of the year last year in
Tucson i think lots of recruits decided to shy away from that
CHVol:: raider, what is the lastest from your buds on
oneutvol:: What do you guys think about Poe at Full back?
I can remember when ASU was pretty doggone tough, but I can't ever remember UA
being too much in the running for anything.
NickGrinnell:: Mackovic is in a
NickGrinnell:: i think Poe has to move if he wants to
DrBill:: Nick, Mackovic is bad, period! He should have never left the
tnvols4life:: back to grids comment, I also would love a huge
recuriting call and actually be able to work on signing day. I was so busy
logging on to check our progress i was useless at the office
Arizona had their run with the "Desert Swarm" defense in the mid 90s... but
never have had an offense.. .the Dick Thome era.
me4ut:: Nick - Do you not
think Poe is LB material? Always heard he hits like a ton of
raiderdj:: CHVol, im hoping to get an email or call tonight on
Fridays and todays 7 on 7s... nothing since Peyton was on campus last
raiderdj:: Mackovic would be gone if not for having three years left on
his contract... no way they Board of Regents will vote to eat
tnvols4life:: I would love to hear an update on the progress this summer,
I am starved for real football news
DrBill:: Did anyone get a call from
Peyton? I understand he was following up his letter with phone calls, but we
didn't get one here in Memphis.
CHVol:: Got a phone call but not from Peyton,
it was someone else in the office.
me4ut:: I haven't heard a peep since
package from "Peyton" but did check with CPA and can run contribution through
company instead of personally!
DrBill:: Well, after our increase this year, I
can't come up with anything else:-)!
me4ut:: Dr Billl! Understand!!! That
parking price was silly too!!!!!!!
raiderdj:: Does Peyton normally work out
on the UT campus during this time off from the NFL camps?
CHVol:: Peyton is
probably a little busy to make that many calls and would never get off the phone
from most fans
DrBill:: I wonder how much those packets cost. They could have
funded Step Ahead or Step Up with what it cost to produce those
me4ut:: Especially if he got on the phone with that guy in the ESPN
Vol12:: raider, Peyton and several other NFL Vols work out on
campus during off season
DrBill:: Me4ut, I've already been squashed about my
griping about the parking pass costs.
raiderdj:: Very cool Vol12... do the UT
players work out with them?? Would be awesome experience i would
CHVol:: Got to go guys, thanks for everything and congrats Grid
DrBill:: Have Peyton & Archie had their qb camp
me4ut:: Dr B - Yeah I remember that! It's worse for me! I'm out of
stater with a "5th" year senior up there and you really get nailed if you are
not instate on tuition!
Vol12:: Some do. Most of the players on campus have
classes too, so they work out very early and the NFL guys usually later in the
raiderdj:: The "Peyton Family Camp" is scheduled for like July 9-12 or
such... have a link to info on Peytons website
tnvols4life:: gentlemen and
Camille, thanks for the chat. I hope this becomes a regular event, I have
enjoyed it. See you all next week. Adios.
NickGrinnell:: see ya
raiderdj:: great to chat with you too CHVol, tnvols
me4ut:: I'm out too! Hope all have a pleasant evening!
DrBill:: Thanks for the Manning info, raiderdj! Hmmm! If
I wasn't going to be in St. Louis on those dates, I might consider riding down
raiderdj:: Pretty neat camp for kids ages 9-12... get to work out with
Peyton, Archie, Eli and it says "other NFL players".
