Another week, another roundtable. This week hosted by: Gate21.
Contrary to popular belief, we try hard to answer the questions.
Rest assured, this week, we won’t try any funny business.
Only insightful answers and analysis shall be put forth.
No messing around with answering questions with questions.
Yesterday was yesterday, but today is today.
Maybe a little funny business might find it’s way into this week’s answers.
1) Thus far we’ve made a number of predictions for the 2008 Vols. Now, let’s take the next step: What are your pre-season predictions for each of Tennessee’s regular season games this year (along with any explanations you feel are needed)?

|Mon, Sep 1||@UCLA||WIN!||Victory in California
|Sat, Sep 13||UAB||WIN!||One more win over the Blazers
|Sat, Sep 20||Florida||WIN||Later Gators!
|Sat, Sep 27||@Auburn||WIN!||Sore Eagle! That’ll be the new chant.
|Sat, Oct 4||Northern Illinois||WIN!||Football Huskies? More like puppies

|Sat, Nov 22||@Vanderbilt||WIN!||Life in the bottom of the SEC is rough.
|Sat, Nov 29||Kentucky||WIN!||Losing ain’t easy, but UK does it well.
2) Gameday routines, we all have them. What are your gameday rituals, especially those that are completely irrational, grounded in baseless superstition, or otherwise defy explanation?
We usually like to wake up, tug one out, and turn on Gameday.
If we wake up late and Gameday is already over, we’ll tug one out later.
Less often, we’ll be over at someone’s house where we have to be more quiet.
Less often still, we’ll be waking up next to a hot woman, who would do that for us.
3) Crompton vs. Tebow? Discuss…
With the proliferation of hard running quarterbacks, Crompton and Tebow fit the bill.
In this day and age, a QB has to be able to run hard and pass accurately.
Neither Crompton nor Tebow are prototypical QBs, but they should both be productive.
Tebow is a bit overrated in my opinion. When he led the Gators alone, they went 9-4
He was able to rack up individual stats, but the team didn’t fare so well.
Even if Crompton didn’t have the stats, I’d rather his team do well.
4) Will the Vols manage to make it to the SEC Championship Game again this season — either outright, or through the backdoor? Why or why not?
No one should doubt the Vols after last year.
After being routed by Alabama and Florida, they were still able to do it.
This year, I see them strolling through the front door however.
If Tennessee can win a couple of games early, watch out.
Offense will be the big question mark obviously, but I think it’ll be solid.
Now the D-Line is also a question mark, but the secondary should be killer.
As long as the team gels as a cohesive unit, the SECCG is within reach.
Lose another one however, and fans will grumble like mofos.
5) Of all the coaches in the SEC who do you currently consider to be the best? Why?
This isn’t even an question for us. Of course it’s Fulmer.
It doesn’t even compare. Just look at his accolades.
The best winning percentage, the biggest coat size, the most desserts eaten.
Little can take away from our coach’s awesomeness.
Except stupid Urban and Steve of course.
