    I'm really trying to be positive this week and had a good feeling about Saturday. Kinda wish I hadn't watched that. Looked like a guy that was tired, and mad, but almost at everyone except himself. That doesn't typically result in a team that's inspired and ready to change the tune of the season. Just looked defeated, as if was already truly a lame duck. Discouraging to say the least.

    And of course, wouldn't be a McElwain presser without a few snarky remarks to the reporters who dared to ask about the football element of things in relation to the storm. I get it, the hurricane sucked. For a lot of people. But you deal with it and move on, not sulk and act as if you've been dealt a hand that no one else ever has. His demeanor was overdone, imo. Really hope the team is thinking/feeling differently.

          Any practice updates out there from writers or is it closed off? If it's closed off maybe the suspended players are practicing

          Doofus is trying to be like Belichick (or his mini me Saban). He tried the SOS routine of being funny and it did not work.

          Nope, he was told to go out and be somber. He is just following instructions from the UF pr folks.

            Seems like he's pissed off, or so I hope that's what it is...

            Could his downdrab demeanor is that tape playing over & over in his head:
            "I've got to fire my best friend. No way around it."

              Well, someone HAS to win, right?

              That says it all, does it? We have become Tinerc.

                  The guy should just farm out the pressers to someone else. He's uninspiring. There's never any energy in his voice and I'm not sure I've ever heard "um" used in 36 consecutive sentences.

                      Butch Jones says he expects his team to beat Florida this week and that they have the 2nd best record in the SEC to Bama over the last 21 games.

                      Another Santa Fe River update. If you live North of the Santa Fe and East of i-75, do not take back country roads. Stick to 75 or 301. There are still smaller county roads under water. Also, there are forecasted thunderstorms for Friday and Saturday, so I-75 could still close depending on rainfall.

                        Oh wow. Name must have thrown me off

                        A side note.... Pat Doolety was just on the local radio station here in Knoxville and picked the Vols this weekend. He said he just didn't like the body language and demeanor from our coaches and believe that Tennessee is more ready. He drives me crazy!
