The Take (AUDIO): How Social Media Empowered The Vol Fanbase

Social Media is a big deal. How big? Big enough to cause a shift in power at a major college program. That program is Tennessee. Cowboy gives his thoughts on how #voltwitter changed the game when it comes to hiring a coach. #SEC #VOLSMORE

Dave’s Dish: Coaching Search Breakdown

Dave’s Dish: Coaching Search Breakdown

Phillip Fulmer has one incredible challenge in front of him. Tennessee’s newly hired athletic director has to secure a coach that can hopefully lead the Vols back to their glory days when Fulmer won a national championship, two SEC titles and had the Vols at the forefront of college football’s elite programs. That seems like…MORE

Dave’s Dish: Did Fulmer do it again?

Dave’s Dish: Did Fulmer do it again?

When I spoke to a former Tennessee football player on Thursday I was presented with a conspiracy theory that was almost impossible to believe. The player told me he firmly believed that former UT coach Phillip Fulmer was purposefully sabotaging Tennessee’s coaching search in order to have John Currie fired and become his replacement. I…MORE

Dave’s Dish: Set egos and aside and get Lane

Dave’s Dish: Set egos and aside and get Lane

It’s time for Tennessee to take a chance. The only way to salvage the Vols’ coaching search is to be risky.   The obvious choice that is setting social media on fire is to hire Lane Kiffin. In order for that to happen, egos will have to be set aside, which likely won’t happen. UT…MORE

Dave’s Dish: UT fans have a right to be embarrassed…twice

Dave’s Dish: UT fans have a right to be embarrassed…twice

There is one man that stood in the middle of two of the most embarrassing days in Tennessee football.   His name is John Currie.   Tennessee’s athletic director made the Vols the laughing stock of college football on Sunday when he tried to make Greg Schiano the head coach of one of the best…MORE

Dave’s Dish: The Dumpster Fire Burns On

Dave’s Dish: The Dumpster Fire Burns On

Let me be clear, I never thought Greg Schiano would be a great hire for Tennessee when news began to leak this weekend. And that has nothing to do with what role he may have played at Penn State scandal.   Schiano has a 68-67 record in college football, all at Rutgers. His record is…MORE

Dave’s Dish: Sorry, they were all just Grumors

Dave’s Dish: Sorry, they were all just Grumors

Dear Tennessee’s fan base,   I hate to tell you this, but I feel quite certain you’ve been misled, fooled and teased by the person you wanted to save your football program. All signs point to the fact that Jon Gruden never really considered becoming the head coach at Tennessee.   The latest example came…MORE

Dave Says: When to start the process?

Dave Says: When to start the process?

Dear Dave, My husband and I are debt-free, and we have an emergency fund of six months of expenses saved. We’d like to buy a home in the $250,000 to $275,000 price range in the near future, and we plan on saving $60,000 for a down payment. It should take a little less than two…

Dave Says: A home shouldn’t leave you house poor

Dave Says: A home shouldn’t leave you house poor

Dear Dave, My husband and I were listening to your radio show the other day. In it, you were speaking to a lady about buying a home. When you talk about mortgage payments being 25 percent or less of your take-home pay, does this figure include taxes and insurance or just principal and interest? Ann…

Dave Says: Emergency fund for business?

Dear Dave, I have my own small business. My annual sales are just over $100,000, and I have a couple of months in administrative and general expenses set aside. Should I have an emergency fund for my company, too? If so, how much? Taylor Dear Taylor This is a great question! I like the idea…
