I believe you are mistaken. This staff wouldrecruit well.
One possible addition would be Elder to safeties (i believe they moved him there at UC in 2012)/special teams and Weist to TE. Or you could make Tee QB coach and have Bajakian not coach a position.

they were recruiting in Florida the land of milk and honey. You can hope our staff does ok recruiting but the only thing you can expect is for them to struggle and that isn't what we need.'
Heck even Derek Dooley was smart enough to know he couldn't bring but 1 coach with him from the lower level job
I thought Addazzio got the BC head coaching job
Boston College has hried Temple's Steve Addazio as its next football coach, Eagles athletic director Brad Bates announced Tuesday.
Look at UCs roster this year - 21 players were from Florida. You don't pull that many players from Florida without establishing some good connections in the state. If Jones takes those preexisting connections and puts Tennessee's name on the table, he's going to start drawing the interest of the higher ranked players. Those high 3 and 4-star players who wouldn't even look at Cincinnati will look at Tennessee, and if he sells the university to them the way he sold it in the press conference you will see the pipeline open up down there.
This is not a guarantee of success by any means, but I do think that there won't be as much of a struggle as some people are claiming.
I'm more interested in how he may reopen the pipeline to Ohio and Pennsylvania. That would be a nice change.
D'oh (Homer S voice). "I'm an idiot!"
History disagrees with you.
You can tell yourself that all you want, but there is no "history" that says you are correct. These guys have recruited well in the past and have
long term contacts in the places we need them to.

Since it's close to Christmas, I have you a +1. After setting the record for down votes in a 48 hour period (at least I'm guessing I did), I still love my Vols & agree with the few non Kool Aid drinkers who see this guy will not last. As long as he's here, we will forever be a 8-4 team. Let's see how much longer it takes or me to drop from a 90 rating to a 0

Whoops, double posted. Maybe I'm a gluten for punishment.

I hear Thigpen is a great recruiter so thats a plus. But what do yall think about Coach Jones continuing his trend of engaging the alumni and calling Al Wilson for the LB Coach job. Big Al was as good as any LB who has played in SEC and NFL in last 25 years and I have a feeling would be a great recruiter. Yalls thoughts?

Wilson doesn't have a college degree, so he can't be a coach on the NCAA level...
I stand corrected.
