I met Mr Moore through my Aunt that worked that the Daily Times in Maryville TN in the aerly 80s and my Uncle that worked for the Knoxville News Sent. He was always a happy man that truely loved all things UT sports. My first UT football game I was able to watch on TV was the 85 sugar bowl and it tood out in part because of a crystal sugar bowl Mr Moore picked up at the game for me. I spent most of my youth out of country for years but Mr Moore always remembered me and had a Vols trincket if he knew I was coming through town. His stories both in writing and word were a huge part of made me a life long fan. My family sent the shirts and toys but his stories made it real when I couldnt see or hear the games. As I got older he became my touchstone to the team and was able to teach me what to look for and what mattered in a game that can easily mislead you.

I started following Volchat because of him and followed his writings through a world of video and journalist short poorly written text talk. His stories were worth reading. They convieved both the what happened and how we left about it. I sought out and read every scrap he wrote and we stayed in touch via Volchat until he semi retired from the site. When he left I left. He wasnt the best known writer, he didnt have the following of the masses, modern sports fans want highlight reels and catch phrases but he was my friend. He was one of the last of a dying breed. A word smith in the age of a film editor.


Mr Moore, you truely are missed.

This is what should be the base defense for the Vols. If the Vols go to a 4-3 then Maggit stands up and they sub in a DE and pull the NB. All in all a very fast and decent sized and talented group. With this groups mix I think we can expect to see a couple of years of very good defense from the Vols. Scout says this is the 9th ranked D in the SEC, I think will be a top 3 when the season ends. Top 20 nationally or better is possible with some help from the O.

Ever wonder why folks that got so worked up over the confederate flag

18 July 2015 - 06:11 AM

Or a christian church never so the same level of anomosity towards the isis flag and islam?

The justifications for islams "bad seeds" automaticly gain a favorable response from the same liberals that spew venom at unnamed general hate of christianit. Why is that? Why is it now trendy to pull down a confederate flag where ever they are but isis flags are untouchabl?  When islam actually embodies all the things these hyper intelligent liberals and liberaltarianclaim christanity claim to do they still will demand and support the islamics. These same illuminated souls seem nothing objectionable about an isis flag while demanding all traces of the confedracy be sandblasted from the american landscape.


Its actually easier to buy an islamic state flag today than a confederate one.

SCOTUS said ~80,000 people were woth disenfranchising 67,000,000

Yep best estimate of the total number of gay "marriages" to date in the US is 71,000ish vs the population of voters in states that held referendums on defining what the state can issue a state marriage lic for.


Hurray for freedom.
