I cannot believe the negative comments spreading through the Vol nation, beginning to be epidemic after the loss of Bell. Even worse are those comments indicating that the problem is CBJ. OK, Ole Miss had a great day as did the other big dogs in the SEC. Well here is my take. This is a solid group of players, especially for a new coach and staff to assemble. The Dobbs get has the potential to do much more good than the Bell loss to do damage to the Vol rebuilding process. Vandy and other schools ranked above UT on Rivals are only there because of numbers, not quality. UT finished above some of the hallowed programs such as Texas. The numbers issue may very well be addressed with 2 or 3 juco players. Given the last years of Fulmer and the disaster of Kiffin and Dooley, I am amazed CBJ and his staff did as well as they did. And even better, I am confident that we now have coaches who can coach, not pretenders such as Dooley and that nightmare Sal. I wish we had done better, but am also well aware of how much worse it could have been given the mess that has piled up over the past several years.We have 21 young men who love UT enough to be part of the recovery and deserve fans who spend their time apprecaiting them instead of griping about the loss of players who looked hard but went elsewhere.
