    :lol: This is almost as big of a joke as the Rock N Roll Hall of Fame.

    I think Fulmers record was pretty legit 152-52

    Yeah, Fulmer is certainly deserving. '98 national championship + top 25 final ranking 14/17 seasons is H.O.F. caliber, IMO.

    this is true...i'd be surprised if this induction doesn't set a precedent for developing a weight classification for HOF coaches though.

    Not a Hall of Fame coach in my book. Good coach, not Hall of Famer.


    RC Slocum is just :lol:

    2 SEC titles. 1 MNC. Won his division 6 times and was 98–34 in the SEC. I'm not saying that he deserves to be in the Hall or not, but damn those are impressive. In the end though Tennessee's lack of in-state recruits and the rise of recruiting by other teams was his downfall.

    So, I'm assuming you believe Coach McCartney is completely unworthy of HoF consideration as well?

    Uhhh, have you looked at what coaches are in the H.O.F.? There are 190 coaches. Fulmer is certainly deserving given some of the others in there.

    Yes. I like Coach Mac but not a HOF coach

    Tom Osborne got his ass kicked by Oklahoma, Miami, Florida state and to some extent Colorado for many years.
