You are like a Chihuahua barking at the heels of a Rottweiler, you are way over-matched in this one and just seem to want to argue for the sake of it. tntoak has made very reasonable statements about the progression of classes and the impacts each coach has had and all you seem to be doing is picking a piece and twisting its context to suit your argument.
Also, if you cannot handle the fact that someone has an extensive vocabulary get yourself a dictionary and a thesaurus so you can keep up.
Now, why did you have to go and make this personal by insinuating that I'm not intelligent enough to understand his vocabulary? I'm very educated and perfectly capable. Since your argument is completely ad hominem I see no point in responding further. +1 to you though for effort.

This isn't true at all. After tnoak clarified that he was just pointing out a trend of recruiting correlating with winning, I understood why he might say that. In any case, I still don't think it's accurate to say that Kiffin is responsible for Dooley's 2 good classes but that Fulmer wasn't responsible for Kiffin's or Dooley for Jones'. Logical inconsistencies should be pointed out. Whatever criteria you use to reason why Dooley was "bad" also has to apply to Fulmer, Kiffin, and Jones. Whatever logic you use to reason that Fulmer was "good" has to apply to Kiffin, Dooley, and Jones....etc.
The logical nature of some Vol fans truly saddens me. That we continue to have those who defend Doly, despite the fact that mounting evidence is now coming out that he was driving our program into the ground. The truth of the matter is that year by year, the recruiting classes were ranking lower and lower. I’m sorry those of you who still support him, but that is a fact. Am I saying that Butch Jones is the answer? No, because I have no idea. We’ve yet to see him coach a game, but surely to goodness his in game coaching abilities will be better than Dooly’s, for they certainly couldn’t get much worse. If Green were a silent, then great, but in the end he didn’t choose to put on the orange, which drop him off my radar
logic saddens this guy... I would've never guessed.
He was a silent to Chizik and Luper too. He was playing everyone.
All three of Dooley's classes were higher ranked than this class... So, if I am following this logic correctly, Dooley sucked as a recruiter, and Butch will show us all next year. Except this year class was the lowest rated class in 5 years? DOES NOT COMPUTE.

We had a class ranked in the 40s when Butch came in. The 40s.
That had to be the lowest starting point I've ever seen for a UT class.
But Jones last classes at Cincy ended up in the high 40s and low 50s. So logically that's where we should have been right?
If there's a list of recruits somewhere that we would have pulled in to put us in the top 20 somewhere I'd like to see it. But I venture to say that it's an uphill battle for anyone when your left with a class of committed three stars and not a lot else.
you have to think though too we were trying to flip commits to UT as well instead of going after those that werent committed yet and if we could have flipped or committed maybe two or three recruits out of Lawson, Bell, Bellamy, Levenberry, Green, and Boyd we could be looking at a top 15 or top 20 class. but we couldnt and so it showed in our rankings next year will be alot different story and im just glad that our staff got in there with those guys and we ended up as a close second in each one of their recruitments
