On Recruiting Freaks


Lets git it on, silver britches

When I read VFL55 or VolNavyMan’s Volquest posts, I generally proceed with caution. Brent Hubbs can be a sneaky sort. He parades many intruders on his message board as Orange and White.  I recall a few years ago during the recruitment of Jon “MDVs” Crompton VFL55 once posed has Crompton’s Uncle. He CALLED the Virginia rivals guys to to dissuade the Cavs from chasing Cromps.  Genius/

To me, pornography is even more dangerous than drugs. Just think of the Tennessee Vol fans watching those videos. Next thing you know, they’ll be imagining their football recruits naked.

Do you think VFL55 is real? Are you kidding me?! Nobody could ever be that damned stupid as hell as VFL55 is. He has to be an Bama act or Volquest moderator masquerading as an idiot and  to top it all off Hubbs has him on to post about Coach Dooley like he is a child. I swear I read the manifestos  had done wrote since the height of recruiting season and if it’s me I think Coach Dooley should slap the shit out of him cause he don’t know football like a football royalty like a Dooley.

And what is more, the Phil Fulmer loved and respected Dooley’s dad and sons, all. That’s all I need. And Mike Hamilton and Coach Dooley don’t deserve how VFL55 goes on them all of the time. Hamilton is old and wise and has done the wars with Fulmer. a legend same as the bear only Fulmer is still living. My nephew who plays trombone in the Pride of the Southland Band had a difficult time when his best friend in the band who played flute, was killt in a car wreck. Mike Hamilton took my nephew to the side and loved him as he would a son and felt his pain. He is a fine leader, same as coach Dooley and Mike Hamilton. They all do many fine and wonderful things for young boys and men. My Vols are back!!!

I would like to take a moment and remind everyone how far we’ve come!  we are just a play or two away from being in the hunt for another conference title.  Your support has not gone unnoticed by the team.  We need you to stick with us.  I’m confident that we’ll beat the jocks off Auburn and UGA this National Signing Day

Below are some of VFL55’s rants:

On Maggitt…. Reply
A UF poster on the MB who I know has proven to be reliable in the past is saying it appears as if Maggitt will be a Vol.

Sorry in advance if anybody finds this post to be annoying or offensive. As always, I mean no harm.

…you really need to see someone about this stuff.

Wednesday isn’t that far away. Questions on the same subject for ten to fifteen straight days, ten times a day will not change the outcome. You want someone to ease your fear that UT may not get the beasts you’d like. It just cannot be done. One or two of these kids may go elsewhere.

I’m seriously worried about you, bud. One of these years will produce another Black Monday or some other recruiting disaster, and you might not be able to step back off that ledge.

Some of these folks are comical, but you’ve left comedy far behind. Wednesday might not bring everything you’d like, but UT may still produce a good football team. Give the coaches a chance to grow a beast or two rather than just the ready-made stuff.

Honestly did not read past the first line. I’m fine though. Thanks for your concern.

You might want to read it. This is unhealthy for you. At least, I think it is. You need something that relaxes you, this absolutely does nothing of the kind.

Again, I’m fine. I’m not quite as consumed, nor do I become quite as distraught over it as you probably imagine.

Dealing with posters like you is much more annoying and irritating than missing out on a recruit. I promise you that is the truth.

VNM is clever if not just a smidgen on the less than optimistic side. We’ll take him over big easy and some of those douche types any day of the week.

You weren’t here for “Crompton-gate”, Thad.

Trust me, there’s nothing clever about any of this. Not one bit.

Why do people say stuff like that in a response? If “dealing” with someones’ post so annoying and/or irritating then simply ignore them. It ain’t rocket science.

The only good Alabama team is a beaten Alabama team.

I actually agree with OP, not a flame though. Maybe you need to take a step back VNM, it does the mind good sometimes.

I find it amazing how some posters are so obsessed. Moderation is the key to life

Obsession is one thing. But to worry that much about where a 17 or 18 year old kid is going is scary. It bothers him more than 99.9% of the people on here. Just creepy. If they come here good, if they choose another school? Oh well, sitting at home and worrying about it and asking brent the same damn questions multiple times daily is pretty stupid

The level of exaggeration is this thread is just insane.

I do not ask Brent multiple questions daily about the same guy. I don’t know what else to say other than that is just a flatout lie in attempt to somehow make me look a certain way for some odd reason.

I believe I have asked Brent one question today. I very, very rarely ask him more than a 2-3 a day(many days I don’t ask any).

And I don’t “worry” about it or get even remotely close to as distraught if we lose out on a recruit than some of you seem to honeslty believe. I just follow it because I really enjoy it. We’re going to be fine if we don’t land another guy and I have never said otherwise. Like everybody else, I would be disappointed if that were to happen. But if it does, it does. I will still look forward to spring practice, the regular season, and going through recruiting process all over again next season.

If one(eg. Navy) is NOT worried about worrying too much, then would
one (eg. Navy) worry that one SHOULD be worried about worrying too much?
Because that is certainly a different kind of worry…

And, should we worry about people worrying about people worrying too much?

I think there are as many kinds of worry as there are people.
And we know that it takes all kinds of people to make this world go ’round,
so maybe we just shouldn’t worry about it?

But of course, if we don’t, who will? Somebody’s got to.

I thought that Navy had evolved past genuine worrying and was now doing most of his posting just to provoke others (see that sig pic, meant to draw the venom of the 3rdgen branch of the family). Occasional lapses excepted.

About Capers Bar

I am retired Army officer. I used to fly helicopters and airplanes while I was in the Army. Nowadays, I do other things that are not so cool and sexy. I decided to write about my journey or whatever you want to call it towards running a half-marathon this fall. I have been running since 1983, I have run the Duke City full and half marathons. I don't run that fast anymore, I did win a 10K when I was 21, those days are mercifully past me. The fastest mile I have turned is a 5:05 during one of those Army physical fitness test 2 mile runs. The point I am making is that I am old, slow, and experienced runner. I named the blog after my running buddy, Bandit, an Australian Blue Heeler. He is my 3rd K-9 running buddy, the previous two dogs were black labs. I hope to write about some of my discussions that I have with Bandit in the future. I once owned, but since sold and a satirical and irreverent sports blog that was moderately successful. I was published in the left-wing national sports media by Sports Illustrated and ESPN. I am "stuck" in Alabama working for a military contractor. I am working so fricking hard to get back to Southeast New Mexico or West Texas. Fingers and toes crossed.
