Top football recruit Josh Malone commits to Tennessee
Which high school football team is most likely to win a state championship?

I saw it coming the day his hiring was announced. Dooley had very little chance of making it work. He had not enjoyed success at Louisiana Tech so there was no reason to think he could win at Tennessee.
I do think he stabilized the program somewhat and recruited well enough to give the next guy a chance. But the next guy must salvage this class and then coach the players up in the fashion that Vanderbilt's head coach did this season. Tennessee will need to beat a couple of teams that have a lot more talent than they do, and win the close ball games they lost this season.
If Hart hires a dud it is going to get even uglier. And more fans are going to wish we had just kept Fulmer. You can't overstate the importance of this hire if you are a Tennessee fan.
