This coaching staff just learned its first of many hard lessons to come regarding coaching in the SEC.

They got their heads handed to them on a platter and it tastes like 11nth in the SEC.

We still have several scholarships to give out, correct? I'm sure we'll land a few more.

Go Vols!

Bama shows you how to do it;
EVERY season:
6-7 OL,
4-5 DL.

It's not rocket science.

Seems like we could have loaded up on a bunch of 3 star lineman that had smaller offers. They could redshirt and add the needed bulk. That would have rounded out the class since we have PLENTY of slots available.

IF I were a good JUCO player, I'd not sign on Signing day.
Knowing I only had 2 years, I'd let the smoke settle and go to where I really felt I'd fit the best.

If we had Bray and Patterson back, I'd feel good about a 9-win season next year....Jones is not a "woulda-coulda-shoulda" guy. CDD was damned unlucky, for sure.

Look back this year: MSU, UGA, Mizzou, USC all very winnable. 2 games, USC and Mizzou, we flat gave away. UF, with an D at all, we maybe win.

This coming year....Worley is not very good. Our WR corp will have no gamebreakers. We DO have a good OL coming back.

I think Jones gets us to a bowl game. Other than that, I think the team will be boring as hell.

Winning is not boring.
