Written on Do you believe Butch Jones is the right choice to be UT's coach?:

in response to SandySpringsVol:

When Urban Meyer was hired by Florida, he had 4 years of head coaching experience, 2 in the MAC and 2 in the Mountain West, where he won conference titles both years.

Butch Jones has 6 years of head coaching epxerience, 3 in the MAC where he won 2 conference titles, and 3 in the Big East where he won 2 conference titles.

I'm not saying that this guy is the next Urban Meyer, but he's proved he can coach. Moreoever, he wants to be here and turned down a good job at Colorado to take the Tennessee job.

He's going to have far more resources at his disposal than he could have imagined at Cincinnati, and, if he puts them to good use, can build a great program at UT.

Welcome Coach Jones!

Urban Meyer fell into a Gold mine as did Gene Chizik. Ohio state was not in this horrible position so seem to think it was and I still don't think Urban Meyer is a great coach. Florida Sucked wwhen he was coaching and Tebow left. Dave Hart sucks and I now can't stand the bastard. Plus I hate everyone who bashes others for NOT liking this hire because the truth be its a stupid hire and sometimes its ok to admit that. HORRIBLE HIRE!!!!

Written on Should Tennessee consider re-hiring Phillip Fulmer?:

60% have Voted Yes and the only ones seeming to slam his name is the 39% at this point. I would hire him in a second. I would love to have defense again and have our big bowlingball type running backs again as well. EVERY coach can have a few bad years so get real. Don't give me Fulmer was the problem as thats silly to say. 11-2 in 2001 10-3 in 03 and 04 9-4 in 06 10-4 in 07, Thats not to bad if you ask me. Yes 2 losing seasons but I think Fulmer would not take it for granted this time around. Can anyone say K-State.

Bill Snyder at Kansas State disagrees.

Lol yes he does. 11-1 though. The game musta passed him by as well as 12-0 would have been ideal lol.

Hall of Fame means he was good in the PAST. Losers live in the past. Football is a different game now than it was in the mid to late 90's, and if you don't see that, then you probably have no clue about football.

Yeah cause man do we future stud coaches lined up at our door steep. I mean seriously maybe Sticknmove we should hire you then with your vast knowledge of the game. Spurrier shouldn't be winning either as he was a winner in the late 90's and since the game has evolved so much he lucky to be employed at this point. Fulmer made some bad hires moron he knows that we all know that, and thats why I said a short contract offer as it couldn't get any worse. Do you feel powerful insulting people over the internet because you share a different opinion than others. I think you seem to be the loser as I liked the stability we had and the players we had year in and year out. And yes I think player would want to play for Fulmer as he put lots of them in the NFL even in his 2000 years.

in response to Vol86:

Why wouldn't someone play for him. I just read he was put in the hall of fame. Oh! I forgot kids these days do not read.

Amen!!!! I guess the same reason they played for Dooley and Kiffin. Who wants to play for a Hall of Famer?! Thanks Vol86 some people are just delusional.

in response to jimr07:

Why won't you Fulmeristas go away. He is part of the problem we face today.. The national championship was 14 years ago.. please look at 2000-2008.. how many top ten teams did we beat?

Then who do you hire since you are of a great football mind???? 151-52-1 thats pretty impressive to me and once again you make better staff choices. You need to go away as you are sitting on a message board with me and not coaching anywhere I see either nor are they asking for your opinion. We always had backs who could run and a D that was not an embarrassment and integrity, and someone who LOVED to be here just got to comfortable. There is NOBODY out there dude, nobody.

Hire Fulmer! The Chief comes back and maybe keep Jim as well. I don't care what anyone has to say about Fulmer, yes he got a little complacent but I think he realizes hes not untouchable and we would not settle for mediocrity. I mean what is it 151-52-1 and I also think he would be a little wise as to whom he chooses staff wise and we have Chaney to stop the run run punt play calling. There is nobody like Fulmer out there and don't care who tries to call me out, as Les Miles is not coming here nor Spurrier or Saban. Things would change Fulmer knows that and we also get Tee Martin back here as well. I think we work a short term deal as Fulmer would agree to a betcha and if not we hire another in 3 years. Yes we would have to start over in 3 years if it didn't work but there is NOBODY out there I feel could turn it around like us crazy UT fans expect, at least realistically. 2 bad seasons and we fired a guy who bleed orange for people who would less us just as fast for a better offer. Blast away I don't care thats my opinion and you are welcome to yours and no amout of bashing is going to change my mind nor yours. I just think we all can agree we need to get this done and find someone who can actually lead and coach. GBO!!!!

Yes I am tired and didn't proof read oh well. You get my point;)

Written on Final: Mississippi State 41, Tennessee 31:

I can't stand Dooley and am always hard on him but tonight was POOR play by both sides of the ball. I do have one question that I can't seem to figure out. Why on MS States last drive when we stuffed them and had them 3rd and 8 did we call a timeout???? I am no coach but why would you call a timeout on 3rd and 8 and let them have a chance to adjust on the sideline and take away our what little momentum we have away? Wouldn't it have been smarter to wait and save it for a first down if they got one???? That is what bothered me the most as he wasted another on the GA game on an Extra Point????? PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE someone explain that to me. Thanks

Written on Report Card: Tennessee-Akron :

I truly feel this is as good as it gets. Not here to fight with anyone about who is right and who is wrong but I must say I miss Fat Phil. UT needs to spend some money and get a PROVEN top tier coach or we will be the Next Kentucky. If we did that with Georgia there is no coming back like we did tonight. I will always be a Vol but faith is lacking hard-core.
