Information on how to aid the victims of the deadly tornado in Oklahoma
I cannot believe how split the fan base is. Some of the comments since this hiring are just beyond the limits. I for one support this hire and will continue to so until this coach proves me wrong. He has many things in his favor most notably he wants to be here, that in my book goes a long way. I am not a short term fan. I have lived through the likes of Dickey, Battle, Majors, Fulmer and so forth. Do I wish we could have hired a coach with orange blood in his veins, you bet I would but none were available except for Fulmer and Chavis. We weren't going to repeat the mess from Fulmer and unfortunately we burned the bridge with Chavis when we treated him like phooey. I think it's time to move on, we have our guy. Yes, he has no SEC experience, neither did Miles, Saban, Richt or even Meyer-- all successful SEC coaches. Tennessee has allowed themselves to get to this level, it will take a man with guts and fire to bring it out of the sewers of college football, Butch Jones may be just the guy to do that. Enough with all this negative thinking and Yes the smartest thing he has done so far is get rid of the entire loosing staff except for Jay Graham. He hasn't proved me wrong yet. We had the worst defense, worst special teams so good bye and good riddance to those losers. Our offense, c'mon folks, everyone knew Chaney was a passing guy when he came here and he would not change, in the SEC you must be able to run that football up the gut and protect it. When he proves all of you nay sayers wrong I hope to see you posting on here in support of the man who has led the VOLS back to the top of the SEC.
