BUTCH IS NOT FOR THE FAINT OF HEART. GO VOLS!
They must've forgotten to call in advance that they wanted to drop by lol.
"When we step on that football field, everyone flips a switch. And it's on..." - Butch Jones
Should've been Fired after Kentucky 2011. I said it then, and stand by it.
Ainge was also said how he had a recent convo with Curt Maggitt, and Maggitt was never asked ONCE how he was doing or feeling. Another words, Maggitt said the atmosphere there now is so much different because people genuinely care about him and how he is doing, whether football related, or just in general. These players are 19, 20 years old and want to feel needed/wanted/appreciated/cared for. Many of them have taken a BIG step in leaving their comfort zone of family, and sometimes even state. I'll continue....
I know the consensus for most is we win 5-6 games. I am now starting to believe we can win 6-7. The past three years, these players had nothing to play for but themselves. I'm surprised we did as well as we did in some games under the circumstances. I have much repsect for the players under the Dooley debacle simply because they played for themselves and for us as fans. NOW, they will playing not only for those, but for their coaches as well, and I think that will get us through some close games with a W. Take UGA for example.... we win that game last year with Butch on heart alone because they will dig deep inside and play for their coach!! USC, same thing! I understand we lack WRs and QB, but our OLine will open up running lanes AND give whoever our QB is significant time to find open receivers. Not to mention our D will be significanlty better.
Anyways, just my .... I cannot WAIT until the season starts and we can start to be a unified fan base and really support our team!! IFTIT!!!
