This guy is going to do well at Tennessee. I'm sorry that such a large part of the fan base seems determined to be negative, but my sense is that he will prove a lot of people wrong. Is he Nick Saban? No, but, then, Nick Saban was not Nick Saban when LSU hired him in 2000.
In fact, I remember hearing a lot of negative comments on his hiring then, and when UAB beat LSU in Baton Rouge early in the season, the howling got louder. (LSU beat Tennessee the next week, by the way.) And when Saban went 7-6 the first year at Alabama in 2007, Paul Finebaum was all over him. We know how things ultimately turned out.
So, maybe UT fans should be willing to see what happens, as opposed to already having Jones fired in three years, as I have been reading on the message boards.
