Phil Fulmer is the new Lloyd Carr

Well, not really new. They've always been the same coach. Recruit well yet still consistently lose to biggest rival. Continually make boneheaded coaching decisions yet somehow win a national championship.

Fulmer went and laid another egg on the West Coast last night. The myth that Fulmer is an elite coach (if it still exists at this point) is based on his 45-5 record from '95-'98. He's 80-35 since then. Not bad, but that's not good enough in a conference with LSU, Georgia, Alabama and Florida.

Perhaps my favorite thing about the internet (other than the porn) is being able to read in game comments. Hope, anger and resignation. What it means to be a Tennessee fan under Fulmer.
