Guess you are just all vol if you get your way?
there is no way...ide ask this could dooley go to cincy and do what butch jones has done there?
and kelly went to nd and playing for nc..so this might work better then alot thinks.
i see the fire in butch i didnt see in dooley..butch has done more with less..and lets face it
it's going to take this type of hire to turn this program around..theres no big name coaches beating our door down..hart and cheek see it and there trying to get the next better hire and thats what they have done...i still see this being a coach knows how to win and wants to win and be at tenn to prove it
but its not even a done deal from what i understand..butch could be more interested in the wisconsin job
we will no something tomorrow ide say if we even can hire butch and if we dont hire him ..we are in big trouble because hart..cheek aint paying for a big hire..this proves it ..they have screwed every thing up so bad...i hope we save what recruiting class we got going and improve better then vandys class when
all is said and done....franklin want beat jones as easy if hired and kentucky want be beating us.
upgrade yes ..how much sky could be the limit...go vols
so you mean to say because you don't like the new coach you are not going to give him a chance and you are not going to go and support the young men who play TENNESSEE?
GO BIG ORANGE!!!
GO BIG ORANGE!!!
Tell me more about coach Dutch Bones?
I'm curious who this unifying hire would be. I keep hearing the hire needs to unite the fan base. About the only thing I can think of that would unite the fan base is wins. Maybe if we rolled Majors, Fulmer and Saban into one person then everyone would be happy.
Best thing to come out of Alabama: I-59 North
So Butch Jones provides a guarantee of success down the road?
No but you're right, no coach does. But at least our hopeful candidates all but guaranteed imediate exposure and recruiting success. Butch jones provides neither.
I don't know that I agree with the idea that Jones is horrible, but for folks to atack people for questioning this hire is silly as well. By unifying hire I don't think the OP means that it had to be a splash, but it did mean that at least a larger part of the fanbase should support the hire. I'll be honest about it and say that I am not all that excited by this, but I would be outraged at the first person who said that I wasn't a fan of Tennessee football just because I didn't blindly support this choice. folks we are all allowed to collect information and make our own choices based upon the information we collect. If I decide that I'm not over joyied by this hire, then that is my right. Also, by paying my monthly subscription fee I am allowed to come on this board and say I don't know about this. Let's quit with the "You aren't a real fan" junk. This is an emotional time, and we need to try to find some common ground.
