Duh, of course.

More important is their reaction to whomever we hire to replace Dooley.

Recruits will back off Tennessee, also some underclassmen will visit leaving as well. All the more reason to make the correct unifying energizing hire that inspires and brings hope and promise with a huge dose of excitement!

Our big orange has faded terribly since I think 2001. If phat phil had got off his lazy self and got some coaches he could have died here. Instead here we are 3 coaches later in a state of confusion. Let us unite as a orange nation and pray that Mr. Hart makes a better decision that the dumba.. he replaced. I have been a loyal fan since being blessed to see us whip Penn State with Franco Harris and Lydell Mitchell in the SAME backfield, and saw them follow up the next year with our first night game. Saw us give "the ole ball coach" a good old country butt whuppin in 1990, again in 92 and in 98. It is my prayer to hoist at least one more National championship before I die. I like to say "American by birth, Big Orange Volunteer by the Grace of God'
God Bless America

GO BIG ORANGE
