Tennessee fans are losing it again.

Wednesday night, Tennessee fans again expressed their dissatisfaction with the program - this time because it leaked that the school is in talks with NC State head coach Dave Doeren. Tennessee, this past Sunday, also rescinded an offer to Greg Schiano after public backlash into his potential hiring.

Thursday, CBS Sports college football analyst Barrett Sallee summed up the Tennessee-Dave Doeren situation in one line. Tennessee fans don't really want Doeren, and NC State fans kind of want him to leave and take the offer from the Vols.

It's pretty amazing that Tennessee, one of the most storied programs in all of college football, is in this position. At this point, it seems like the school is going to need one of its own - like a Tee Martin - to come home and save the day.
