Help us pick the top stories of 2013 >>
Please don't shoot the messenger, but without the miserable failure of Sunseri's defense last year, we probably would have won 9 or more games. Dooley would likely have gotten a raise, an extension, or both, and we would have been stuck with him trying to rebuild with this year's team and a fat multi-year contract too expensive to buy out.. And when did DD EVER have a recruiting class like the one Butch is potentially putting together? As much as it pained me to watch, and as much grief as I had to endure (I live in Alabama...), the only silver lining was that DD is gone and we can finally, maybe, move on from the last few sad Fulmer years. Kiffin and Dooley set our program back a decade and if we're lucky, Butch will have us competitive by 2015 and in contention a couple of years from that. I don't know about you but I'm about tired of losing. However, when you hire losers for coaches (Kiffin and Dooley had never won anywhere before) what did we expect? In the modern SEC, if you want a winner you don't mold one, you go out and hire one. Hopefully that's what Hart has done, time will tell. Go Vols!!!
