    OK I am violating my own rule that you can only have one team that is your team. But my team is Maryland and for 30 years I have been on the outside of the college football world unable to participate. But since we will be retiring to TN in the next decade I decided a few years ago to follow Tennessee. I mean it's not like I was jumping on the Alabama bandwagon or anything. And I'll still root for Maryland as they complete another 5 win season but I need more.

    So hook me up. I can't see much of them up here so I need help knowing my new team. Looks like they will be pretty good right?

    Supposed to be pretty good, but we'll see how that goes...

    You'll need to dislike the teams listed below, and hate at least 2 of them:
    Alabama
    Florida
    Georgia
    Vanderbilt

    Butch Jones is the coach

    Oh I have hated Alabama for a long time, Florida going back to SS, and Auburn because they obviously bought Cam. I have no pulse for the others on your list.

    So what type of offense do they run? Is the QB back? He caught my eye in the one game I was able to see.

    Butch Jones has installed a spread offense. QB Joshua Dobbs returns and will be a Senior this year. The team will return around 18 starters for this upcoming season.

    Thanks, this was more the sort of thing I was looking for. I lived in Knoxville as a young kid and as a result always kind of followed the Vols from a far, I remember Tee Martin, but I'm taking it more seriously now. It sucks not to be involved in college football.

    @Darrell Green Fan, ignore intrusive posts from @bamabear82. Though he is arguably the least distasteful of Hoopla's contingent of Bammers, he's still "Roll Tide."

    Avoid 4down20. He is the most hateful and curmudgeonly of Bammers. Mr. Rodgers wouldn't hesitate to shoot 4down20 if he trespassed on Mr. Rodgers' property; 4down20 is despised, even by the likes of Barney the Purple Dinosaur, Rainbow Plenty, and Schnuffel, the Snuggle Bunny.

    Well, that's the nicest thing you've ever said about me. Wood.

    @Darrell Green Fan
    Memorize the song, 'Rocky Top.' Become inured to it. Sing it with gusto whenever it's played by the Pride of the Southland marching band.
    Go Vols! Go Big Orange! should roll off your tongue as easily as "Hello."
    Learn the history of blue tick hounds and The University of Tennessee, Knoxville.
    Be humble, good-natured, and generous to a fault. Harbor no regrets for being parted with your money, especially if a good time was had by all.
    That'll get you started. :thumb:

    Begone from these here Tennessee threads, lest I post Rocky Top all over Bama's own corner of Hoopla.

    Lyrics to Rocky Top won't be a problem. I bartended in the 80's and it was on the jukebox for years. I know every word to that fucking, er I mean great, song.
