Wyoming 13 - Tennessee 7
A couple of questions:
- Is this the worst loss in the history of the University of Tennessee?
- The 2008 team has now tied Johnny Majors' initial squad for most losses in one year, with two games still to play where the Vols will almost certainly be underdogs. I'll save one sliver of hope that the troops might rally against Kentucky for Fulmer's finale, but what do they have to play for in two weeks at Vanderbilt if they didn't play for anything today? And if this does become the worst team in the history of the program, isn't it pathetic that we'll have to tag that with Fulmer for the rest of his life? "Forced to resign after leading the Vols to the worst season in the history of the program." If he took us to the mountaintop, don't we also have to say that he left us in the valley?
- Is there a single soul who regrets the move now?
- On the bright side, isn't it impossible for whoever comes in here next now to not have a season that's considered an improvement in 2009? If we'd won out and won our bowl game for the coach that these players said they cared so much about, there would be some positive momentum to live up to for the new guy. Now, anything resembling an offense and anything more than 0-12 would be something to improve upon. So you can be sad that 6-6 in 2009 would be favorable...or you can try and hope this makes everything easier in general for the next head coach.

Let's hope so.
