It's pumpkin season

More and more it appears Phillip Fulmer will be out as Tennessee's coach after this season. The Knoxville News-Sentinel reports a 6-6 record this year would not be enough to save Fulmer's job. If Fulmer is forced out, UT AD Mike Hamilton should be made to explain what was going through his head giving a coach with no leverage or market value a big money contract extension just months ago. Fulmer's been getting outcoached for years, and talent isn't enough against Urban Meyer or Nick Saban like it was against Ron Zook and Mike Dubose. The coincidence that a loss to South Carolina is what finished off Johnny Majors at Tennessee and now Fulmer's torturer Steve Spurrier will be in Columbia to administer his death blow is amusing.

Kentucky's Mike Hartline has been demoted from the starting quarterback spot. He's knows who has to be held responsible for his poor play of late - his teammates. Very impressive leadership there. I'm sure Rich Brooks is reconsidering his decision.

If you didn't see the gruesome injury in the Houston game last night, you're fortunate. If, despite that, you want to see it you can do so here. Whoever is responsible for those carts being where they were should be out of a job and held liable for this young man's injury. No excuse for something as obviously dangerous as that whatsoever.

Allegedly we'll get game five of the World Series out of the way this evening. I hope the Rays can extend it just so we get to see the Series decided in a legit game as opposed to this circus. With snow flurries possible tonight, who knows though? Maybe Bud can move the end of game five to a "neutral site" - Milwaukee.
