Sources: Titans Head Coach UTVOL54 Calls Team Meeting, Speculation Swirls

The Tennessee Titans are 11-0 this season, have won 27 of their last 28 games, and have a total 46-3 record in RUTS2. However, inside sources within the Titans front office set off a firestorm in Nashville this week with speculation that Head Coach UTVOL54 met with his team this week to inform them that he is stepping down as Head Coach at season's end.

Leading up to his team's Week 13 game against the Indianapolis Colts, the Titans have arguably never played better. They lead the NFL in team defense, scoring defense, and turnover margin, along with having the 2nd most productive offense. All of this makes the rumors of Coach UTVOL54's impending retirment from RUTS2 all the more surprising.

Practice has gone on as usual this week, and Titans players have not confirmed or denied the rumor of the team meeting. After days of questions from the media, including late night stalking from the ever-annoying Chris Berman, Coach UTVOL54 issued this statement to the media before the Titan's walk through practice in Indianapolis, which ironically is the site of this season's Super Bowl:

"Our team is as focused as they've ever been right now. We are gearing up for the final five weeks of the regular season, four of which are AFC South Division games. We will not let any rumors or distractions get in our way of an undefeated season and claiming the NFL's first ever 19-0, Super Bowl Championship winning team. And, I will certainly not let any thoughts of retirement on a sunny, warm beach with an icy Mojito in my hand, no alarm clocks, no media, golfing every day, and delicious seafood distract me from that goal. Until the season is over, and I'm holding the Lombardi Trophy in my hands, I will not address these rumors."

With that, Coach UTVOL54 walked toward the practice field...wearing flip flops and carrying a beach towel.

Coach Stu Makes Redskins Coach Cry

Coach StuBucksman and the Arizona Cardinals continued on their path of dominance in week 13 by throttling the Washington Redskins 89-14. In setting a RUTS2 scoring record, including 51 (yes, 51!) 4th quarter points, Coach Stu brought Redskins Coach Steve Spurrier Jr. to tears as he continued to pour on the points.

In his post game interview, Spurrier Jr. stated that Coach Stu was "not nice at all" and it really "hurt his feelings."

Season 3 Update/Standings from the SuperFans and Michael Jordan

Entering Week 11, RUTS Season 3 is in full swing and has provided a few surprises already. San Diego Coach Rob-A-Dob decided to resign from his position as head coach to join the new cast of "Dancing With The Stars," Coach Stu finally got the monkey off his back by defeating Coach utvol27, the Steelers and Coach zeejaydee have found their identity and are playing the best they've played in RUTS and are a sure fire contender for the Super Bowl, and Minnesota and Coach ChrisHicks have reeled off 9 straight wins to start the season, dominating teams like never before. Throw in the fact that the Titans are winning games primarily with Vince Young's arm (Chris Johnson has fewer than 100 carries through 10 weeks), and you have the makings of one crazy season.

Week 11 has two user/user matchups...and the headlining game features the top 2 NFC teams, the 9-0 Vikings against the 9-0 Cardinals. The 9-0 Titans host 6-3 New Orleans in their final user game of the season.

Entering Week 9, here are the standings, as well as the leading stars in RUTS...

1. Titans (9-0)
2. Steelers (7-2)
3. Patriots (6-3)
4. Chargers (6-3)
5. Raiders (6-3)
6. Colts (6-3)

1. Cardinals (9-0)
2. Vikings (9-0)
3. Cowboys (8-1)
4. Saints (6-3)
5. Falcons (6-3)
6. Seahawks (6-3)

Mid-Season Leaders:

Rushing - Willie Parker (Steelers)
Receiving - Eddie Royal (Saints)
Sacks - Josh Sneed (Cardinals)

Cardinals Take Control in NFC

Coach StuBucksman and his Arizona Cardinals remained unbeaten with last night's 31-21 victory over Coach utvol27 and the Dallas Cowboys. The win marked the first time that Coach Stu has defeated a team coached by utvol27, dating back to RUTS1. Leading 24-21 late in the 4th quarter, the Cowboys were driving, but CB Tyrone Wheatley steeped in front of a Tony Romo pass and took it back to the house for 6, giving them a 31-21 win.
"I credit my Bike coaching shorts with this win," said Coach Stu. "Enough said."
