THERE WAS A WHISTLE

It doesn't matter that it was an incorrect call, they blew the whistle. You can't say they didn't. That is simply not credible. It should not have come to that. Vanderbilt gave that game away, and it's something that everyone who cares about the program knows.

That was an embarrassing loss. We folded under the pressure and that's all there is to it. I don't think we lose this game in a year or two, but we aren't there yet and we keep talking ourselves into it.

Nevertheless, it's proof, if any more were needed, that SEC officials are the least competent in the country. It's not even a question of bias, it's a sheer fucking lack of ability to do the job.

Finally, I hate to throw a kid under the bus, but Jelesky needs to be running stairs until he pukes before they even leave Knoxville. That was an asinine play, and he's only contributing to the idea that we have a dirty line.

Worst loss ever? I think so.

I don't understand how simple incompetence can be so one-sided.

Weak, Weak, Weak on O, D and Special Teams - a big choke.

Elliot said...

Jelesky needs to be benched. His clipping penalty was dangerous and undisciplined. It hurt us dearly.

Franklin acted like a douchebag

TBuck said...

Isn't it a logical inconsistency to say that the play was called down but is reviewable because the play was never called down?

all in all a very sad game. 2 easily makeable fieldgoals. Franklin has every right to be upset. Vandy left 13 points at least on the board.

The Vols won that one. The whistle did blow but would not have made a difference. We would have been taking it from Tennessee had they let the call stand. Franklin did not represent us well by throwing a fit. What a baby.

Take your vagina of a coach and go home, Dorks.

This really hurts. I can take a loss when we lose it, but when an official blatently lies, it hurts. There was a whistle and he didn't own up to it. I know that UT probably would have scored, but give our defense a chance.

End of the day, Vandy is still Vandy and they blow the game. Way to stay classy Jame Franklin

Bobby O'Shea said...

I'm interested in what about CJF's behavior was so bad? He told the refs they screwed up, was obviously upset and sought out Dooley. What am I missing?

Rigged... It's obvious the SEC wants to fill all of its bowl slots, with a Vandy loss, now the SEC can fill all of its 10 bowl slots, instead of forfeiting them.

Now you know how it felt to be us last year during the LSU, UNC games. GO VOLS, good lucky next week and see you next year.

Ps. your coach sure did show his colors tonight after the game

Bobby O'Shea said...

UT fans on this site,

I get that you all got screwed last year, and I don't expect any sympathy. But will someone tell me, with some details, what Franklin did? I saw him arguing wiht the ref and then storming onto the field, presumably to try and find Dooley to shake his hand. What did I miss?

ANCHOR UP!!!

Bobby O'Shea said...

I get it, because we were saying Anchor Down, so you said the opposite. Touche

Yes there was an inadvertent whistle and that was a weird ending. Tennessee had two of those last year. Franklin needs to grow up and quit throwing tantrums when the outcome doesn't go his way. Even Kiffin didn't act this bad.

Bobby O'Shea said...

Will someone please explain to me what Franklin did? I'm not arguing, I'm just asking.

TBuck said...

As far as I saw, Franklin acted fine - I think he was searching for the ref to get an explanation that was never given. (Maybe I missed something.) Not only did the whistle blow, but the ref straight up denied it. Shameful.

I actually would have been disappointed if he hadn't been angry.

But he'll get over it tomorrow, and you sure won't hear Vandy fans using it to justify bad officiating that goes in their favor next year. At least I hope not - because from what I've seen it sounds really pathetic.

U guys should be more pissed at the qb than the officials. It was a legit pick six. Bottom line.

Bobby O'Shea said...

Let's be clear. We are upset at the QB (and team) as well. But the two aren't mutually exclusive. We can be mad at a lot of different people, it's a skill we've become great at over the years.

Anonymous said...

Yeah...rigged. They forced Rogers to throw the pick. If he makes a better decision.....Vandy wins,

TBuck said...

More food for thought - if we had NOT have blocked the UT field goal, UT would have declined the penalty and we would have won.

I'm not saying that was technically a bad call, but that is the first time I've ever seen a running into the kicker penalty on a blocked field goal.

Anonymous said...

you still threw an interception it was UT's ball anyway and well if it weren't for running in to the kicker call its the rule get over it thats the risk you take when you go for the block never mind him crashing into the guys leg like that and could have messed up his leg where he couldn't play anymore thats why the rules there to keep idiot from tackling a guy just standing there kick the ball.next you will say well we lost the game coause the goal post aren't wide enough they should be 50 foot wider we would have won the game then they should change that. heres the real reason you lost you field goal kicker sucks and your qb thew a pick in OT none of you heard a whistle all you can say is there had to be whistle there no not really cause there wasn't you lost stop with the excuses

TBuck said...

No excuses - just stating a tragic fact. AND using punctuation. It's a little trick they taught us at Vandy.

Anyway, SEC just officially admitted the officials made a mistake. I know you think it doesn't matter, because his knee was not down. But, as a wise man once posted, "its the rule get over it." (Punctuation added)

Win or lose, I love it that UT fans are getting up in arms about Vanderbilt. Could you have seen a UT fan caring about this matchup 10 years ago? (I would actually ask you to recall 15, 20, or even 30 years, but, judging from your last post, I don't want to assume that you are more than 10 years old.) What volumes this speaks about the directions of the programs.

Anyway, congratulations on a successful season.

Anonymous said...

TBuck, your season was defined by how you played TN. You were even picked to win. Franklin has done nothing, but stir up the fan base....he is still losing to the same teams.

At least we have an education from a respectable school. You Vol fans are living up to your reputation as uneducated, vicious fans.
