Spot on John. Coaches get credit when their teams win and they deserve blame when they lose. I am very appreciative to Fulmer but I agree w/ many that Fulmer did not coach against the elite in the 90's. Jim Donnan (sp) was @ UGA, Sherrill at Miss ST, Brad Scott @ USCjr, Mike Dubose @ Bama, Denardo @ LSU, and so on. None of those coaches compare to Saban, Richt, Miles, Sumlin, etc. Spurrier was the best coach of the SEC and outcoached Fulmer, and many others, in the 90's.
Again, I am very grateful to Fulmer but recruiting took a dive when Saban, Richt, Miles, etc entered the SEC. The Vols won most of their games as they had more talent, not x's and o's- jmo. Fulmer struggled when Saban (LSU and Bama) and other elite coaches entered the SEC.
I wish Fulmer would admit he made mistakes and not throw others under the bus, as he is the one who endorsed Hamilton.
