Thanks to some ignorant , we may lose our chance at another great coach. Every true fan on this board please immediately get on twitter, and post something positive or apologetic for our fair weather idiot fair weather fans on Butch Jones Twitter. Help!

Thanks Ryan! Could one of you do a board on this so that we can get more attention of good fans. I'm seriously scared that this one ignorant act could cause all coaches and recruits to run from us. We need the positive tweets to bury this garbage!
I believe someone already is drumming up that effort. In fact, lots of fans are — even others on here.
I just apologized to Scott Van Freaking Pelt for our fan base and got a reply. Said I was sorry twice. It is so embarrassing.
There are only four answers to any question: Yes, No, I don't know, or the Correct Answer.
Ok good. I sure as hell hope he doesn't decide not to come here because of this. Media would be all over it, and I firmly believe it would set us back by up to a decade.

Done and done... Welcome Coach Jones I am enthusiastic about you coming to Knoxville.
Yep. This is sad that the majority of Vol fans have to go and apologize for the ignorance of a few.
I'm terrified that there will probably still be very bad press even if Jones comes to UT.
did the same and retweeted his tweet about how he would win at Next stop even if it was Knoxville.
Some of these necks are just way out there and some of those had to be bear cat fans as well.
If we get Butch we can move forward and Hart can have a PR Public Apology and damnation for the few ignorant fans. If Butch bails then we might as well have self imposed the "SMU death penalty."
He wouldn't turn down TN bc of some ignorant people tweeting at him that he doesn't even read. This happens way more than you think, after a game where a coach makes a questionable call watch his Twitter line it looks the same or worse. Still sad that people would do that though.
I appologized and sent a positive tweet. I'm beyond ashamed. I'm ready to call it quits on this fan base. I love UT and this hurts so much to watch. But this with the fans is just too damn much.
It may happen all the time, but because we're Tennessee the media is jumping all over it. A few angry tweets is embarrassing but expected. People like Scott van Pelt doing a post on it isn't. It amplifies the issue ten fold.
I sent out a very positive message to and about coach jones. If anyone wants to retweet it feel free. My handle is @jordantucker12
Guys if he does not come to Tennessee because of tweeter he is not made of the right stuff to be successful here. You can thank our AD for the fan reaction.
You can't blame the AD for the actions of a group of unhinged UT "fans" who choose to act like fools online. This type of garbage makes the entire fanbase look like idiots, and you can't pin that on Hart or anyone at the University.
RTd - hopefully I can pick up some RTs of my own to help get the positive message out there.
I agree with what Tntoak said. Could you please explain to me how the AD is in any way, shape, or form responsible for the tweets of idiotic fans?
I eagerly await your justification.
