They did not truly have to start from scratch. Gus was only one year removed from Auburn and he probably was in on every single player they have in their current class about 2 years ago. To compare Auburn to Tennessee in terms of amount of time to close and the relationships each coaching staff had prior, it's not even close to say that Auburn was on an even playing field with us.
Butch Jones. Who???
Yes. I don't understand how people don't see this. +1
It's not like Cam Newton was a decade ago for them either.... That happened while these kids were in highschool....
Do you mean as in the scandal or the heisman winning national champion?
You are correct. A much more fair comparision is Arkansas.
I can't believe this is the 418th (approximately) post about why UT isn't like Auburn.
Agreed. Not a lot of separation there with the exception of Arkansas picking up an elite running back. Which they already had an inside track to as one of the Arky assistants had an extremely good relationship with Collins' coach.
These kids were 4 when we last won a bcs title, 5 for last bcs game, 13 during our last SEC title appearance.

Sorry. I have been on and off the board all day, and had not seen anything to the contrary. My bad.
