I have lived in Ohio my whole life, Cincinnati for the past five years. You guys got yourself a great coach. Congrats.
Outstanding read and look on the hire , thanks for posting.+1
The best thing I took from this, other than everyone outside of East Tennessee thinks this is a knock out hire, is that people believe if he succeeds, he will be here for a long time to come.
If Butch wins, I'll be thrilled to call him my coach until the day he retires.
I'm telling you, I live in Cincinnati and people here are very sad to see him go. We are more upset about Jones leaving than Kelly, Kelly was an ass. He treated UC and everyone here like a stepping stone, which it is. At least Jones did it with class. lol
WOW GREAT POST! Thanks for sharing this....excellent read.
what a great point about opening doors in Ohio for us. everyone is talking about him fitting in (recruiting) in the south. No one has commented on his opening up Ohio to UT. there is great talent in Ohio! why not find some of that southern Ohio talent that might be interested in the SEC as a different option vs. Big 10 (southern Ohio is cloer to Tenn than people realize both in culture and distance from home).
Good points, well written, come back again!
UT has always done well in Ohio. Every now and then they get a player from the Cincinnati area that the Buckeyes wanted.
Ben Martin comes to mind. How did you do for you guys? I didn't follow up once we went to UT. He was a DE.
Thanks, and Congratulations on Tommy Tuberville being your new coach!
Thanks for the link!
to be honest he didn't get on the field that much. however, if i remember correctly he had significant injuries throughout his career and got some PT at the end of his career and was a great locker room guy. I am sure someon else can confirm/clarify me.
I have lived in Ohio twice and i know there is excellent football players up there. To me, Ohio is kinda like Georgia is to the south in feeding both in state and surrounding states great players. (UGA and SEC vs. OSU and Big 10). and I learned how southern Ohio is so close to Tenn/Ky in culture as well as, proximity/distance.
Ohio is a top five state for HS football talent. You basically have Ohio, Penn, Cali, Florida and Texas. Everyone else is second tier. Although Georgia is coming along.
GA is above Penn...IMO
