"Could someone educate me on who Butch Jones is? Thanks."
And people actually think this is a good hire. Please..................
This is from one of our greatest leaders on the team. These guys aren't going to get behind him and we will be right back here in 3 years. See you then.
I know someone with a winning record coming in to coach the Vols is a different philosphy then what were accustomed to but its actually a good thing.
In all seriousness lets see what kind of staff he assembles first.
For all the people that have people they want saved from this staff this is the hire that can probably help that.
Just a guess but I would say most college football players couldn't name 10 head coaches in NCAA.
FWIW, I think Butch has a good history of his players buying in and loving to play for him. Maybe you should give him a chance considering your a Tennessee fan? Crazy, I know.

I agree completely. I dare Jones to let Graham walk out the door. He will lose the few fans that are already supporting him. I can't say whether or not he will fail, but the odds are stacked against him and the only way he's going to succeed is to hire one hell of a recruiting staff. I wish him the best. But I'm fully expecting the worst.
The fact that we spanked Jones during Tiny's freshman year and he still doesn't know who he is speaks volume as to the hire we just made.
If u continue on his twitter he stated something to the effect of he was not being sarcastic he was really interested in knowing more sounds to me like ur twisting what he said into something else negative
Well, honestly, guys, Tiny has tons and tons of physical ability, and I think he's going to be an All-American, but he's not one of our "team leaders," and he's not known for paying attention. Sometimes he doesn't pay attention to the snap count.
He's a kid. He wanted a big name to "shock the world" like we all did. He probably was disappointed Strong looked like a done deal and then said no, like we all were. He may even feel rejected, or like Hart pumped them up for a big name and didn't deliver. All of those are understandable.
His tweet means very little here. Let him meet the guy and play for him, and we'll see where it goes.
"Bravely taking to his feet, he beat a very brave retreat." Sir Robin's Minstrels.
Well, that wouldn't shock me, either. I really think he's a good hearted kid, too, from what I've seen and read, but he should have known to choose his words a little differently if he really just wanted information.
I mean, at first glance it looks like a slam. Hope it wasn't, but yea or nay, it's no biggie. I think Tiny will warm up to him once he gets to know him.
