When we reflect on the last 50 years of rookie Vol Head Coaches, I believe it's fair to say Bill Battle and Philip Fulmer picked up the keys to Ferrari's when they assumed the top job. On the other hand, Jim McDonald, Doug Dickey, John Majors, Lane Kiffin, Derek Dooley, and, now, Butch Jones didn't get near the horsepower. So, QUESTION FOR YOUR CONSIDERATION: which of the listed coaches had the worst material to work with in their first year at Tennessee? Of course, the schedule is more challenging now, and the competition in the SEC is at an all time high (especially 8 Conference games instead of 6). I'll reserve my comments. Y'all have it, if you're inclined to opine.
