Coach Fulmer, with all things being considered, was by far the best coach in school history. He is a Hall of Famer with only a handful of coaches in the Hall of Fame with a better resume. He would be about the 2nd or 3rd winningest coach in SEC history had they not screwed up the program by firing him. I think he is still 6th. This decline everyone speaks about was still averaging close to 10 wins per year, national recognition and full houses. They went to Atlanta about every couple of years.
Make no mistake about it. The 1990s which included one of college footballs greatest runs of 45-5, will never be duplicated at Tennessee. It will not be duplicated at almost any school. That being said, the record of 2000-20008 also will never be duplicated again. I assure you Butch will take the record and accomplishments of the 2000-2008 years and not blink thinking he did a great job. You are holding a man to a standard that he created where it had never been there prior. He was being judged from slipping from a level that no one ever dreamed UT would be to a level that UT has also never been to and certainly not in the modern era.
Lets hold Butch to the 45-5, a legit National Title and back to back SEC Titles as his standard. He will never come close. This program will never again come close.
Get over your lunacy fed by the likes of Adams. Oh yea, enjoy your change. This is what you asked for!!
