Why Not Fulmer?

Since Mike Hamilton “quit” as the Athletic Director for the University of Tennessee , many of the talking heads in the liberal drive-by media and message board heroes have questioned Coach Phil Fulmer‘s ability to exhibit the leadership qualities necessary to lead Tennessee Athletics back to national prominence.

Fulmer won’t be overlooked once again by the drive-by-media. The undeniable truth is that in a world where coaches are judged by kangaroo courts, Fulmer will always be at a disadvantage because of his non-confrontational demeanor and unsavory personal appearance.

Coach Fulmer was dealt a bad hand and he has responded to the best of his ability with humbleness and selfless behavior. President Cheek had it pegged when he likened Fulmer to our immortal coach General Robert Neyland. Let’s not lose sight of our goal, a return to glory by 2016, which I feel is not an unreasonable goal.

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.

    Here ya go, I fixed it:

    Coach Fulmer was dealt a bad hand and he has responded to it like a hooker who just got a bad beat-down from her pimp and needs to get back to making ho-money.
