@RT77 @VolTN @the_voice heh, think Bama is winning those NCs every year without Saban? What I'm saying is, replace Chizik with any other head coach in 2010, and you probably still win the National Championship. Chizik was lucky to have the situation he had in 2010. That's why Auburn was quick to replace when the wheels fell off after Cam and Gus left.

@the_voice In response to your last sentence: but like you said, that national championship was a gift because of Newton and Dyer along with a scheme to fit their abilities brought in by Gus.

Reminds me of Dooley trying to go from 4-3 to 3-4 with his job on the line. Wilcox defense was actually pretty good before they decided to move to 3-4 under Sunseri.

@HoustonVol No doubt, I agree with you. Third year should see a 7-8 win return. Actually competing for SEC championships with 9-11 win seasons should be 4 or 5 years out.
2 months ago on Ex-Vol Coach Fulmer Says New Vol Coach Jones Faces “Lots Of Challenges”
@the_voice Everything Butch Jones has done so far has been absolutely positive. Anyone believing that he could take the same depth chart that Fooley left and make it into a 10 win team should find a new sport to watch. With his recruiting so far, he's two or three years away from having this team ready to compete in the SEC again. With all of the turnover we've had in the past 6 years, I say he should get at least 5 years to show improvement.
@HoustonVol Agreed, I can't imagine anyone in our fanbase starting any firing talk. It takes at least two seasons to start seeing a real turnaround (maybe even longer with the depth chart he took over). If you give Fooley three years, you should give Butch at least that.

Am I the only person who thinks that if my team plays a tough schedule, that it's better? If you get to the SEC or National Championship beating the likes of Kentucky, Mississippi State and Bowling Green, do you really feel like your team accomplished something? The best way to prove you're the best team is by beating the best teams. Regardless, you're still going to have to play the best team in the SEC Championship whether you play anybody else or not. And that's when you'll either be shown as legit or a fraud.

Wouldn't be surprising considering the info that was in the cover stories last week. The guy absolutely hates that Texas A&M makes any money from him (see the Heisman Trophy fundraising) and he absolutely acts like a child when he is asked for his autograph from people who knew him before he was famous (see high school teacher). I could totally see him just not caring enough about TAM or college football to get a quick payday through autograph sessions. Whether he thought he could get away with it or not I think is not really on his mind. I think he truly just doesn't care.

As a Vol fan living in Nashville, I have nothing but the utmost respect for what Franklin has accomplished on West End. Living in this city through the horrible years that Vandy has had, I'm proud that they are out of the cellar in the SEC. Tennessee's problems have been created by Tennessee, not Vandy. The late Fulmer era, Mike Hamilton, Kiffen debacle, and the Dooley years are what caused the issues.

What about D'Andre Payne to Tennessee commitment yesterday? 4 star CB.

The chart says 7 commits for Tennessee, but 8 commits are listed (4 and 4).
Also, does this include D'Andre Payne who committed this morning?

Really excited with the way the Tennessee coaches and the committed recruits are pushing for more recruits to take a good look at Knoxville. Haven't been this excited about the future of the Vols program in years. GBO

I love the boost in recruiting for Tennessee over the last week. I hate that it isn't February 2014 though. These commits right now might not mean anything in 10 months when kids might be de-commiting.

If Tennessee can make it in after that awful showing at Georgia, they should consider themselves lucky. Reminded me of early in the season when McRae was the only scorer you could depend on.

Wow, that hurts. Graham was a Tennessee guy, who knew the area and was a damn fine recruiter.

Smartest decision Butch Jones made was also the simplest: Keeping Jay Graham on staff. That guy is worth every penny he gets. Now I want to see another assistant land a big fish.

Everyone knows that Chudzinski is just a smokescreen for Gruden to show up in Cleveland. Just keep waiting....

@Tired of waiting I wouldn't say 'nobody cares'. I care, because I like to see how my school is comparing to others in the conference.

Just shows you again how much James Franklin has done with that team only having used 4 true freshmen this year. Shows that they have enough upperclassmen talent to compete in the SEC. Amazing job.

That's probably for the best. Butch Jones needs a fresh start in Knoxville and while Hunter wasn't the problem that Bray or Rogers was, I had a feeling that he was playing all year with his mind on the NFL. I would love to keep Cordarelle around one more year but it appears that he'll probably be declaring any minute now.
I'm fine with getting Bray as far away from our team as possible.
