Written on New UT coach Butch Jones in Knoxville:

This guy wanted to be at UT! he wanted to coach here, thats more than Strong, Gundy, or Gruden. Dooley was a desperate hire, Jones was not. He waited and waited for his chance and when Strong turned us down he jumped on it. I think that shows he will do everything he can to help us win

Well, we got our 4th or 5th pick, I will not say this is the end of the world or worse hire ever. BUT.....NOT what I was hoping for when this search began. This guy was probably like in the top 15 for some people. He was going to BUFFALO!!!!! BUFFALO!!!! REALLY???? Our recruits are NOT going to come in droves and we have lost our BIG three who I have heard were going to stay for Strong (well at least one or two of them). BYE top 15 recruiting class bye Bray and co. BYE 4-4 in the SEC, BYE winning season. HOPE HOPE HOPE I am SO wrong!!!!

We were not 4-4 even under Dooley. Bray is very immature and might have cost us some games with his decision making. Hunter was nothing like he was in 2011. he played soft because of his previous injury. Hiring Strong was not going to gurantee us a top 15 class or even wins in the SEC. Jones beat Strong and he can do much better than Dooley. people are only freaking out because we didnt get some big name coach.

kinda ironic that we hire a coach that Dooley actually beat and we got rid of Dooley.
Oh well,,,the king is dead...long live the king! good luck coach Jones. I wish you well

Even a squirell finds a nut, thats about all Dooley did. Jones has beaten Strong, a guy some TN fans were drooling over

I do not see how this is a bad hire. He has a decent winning record and he was Big East coach of the year. Everybody keeps screaming for Gruden, he was never coming. Strong didnt want to come here nor Gundy. Who else was left?? Petrino? Davis? All guys with either NCAA issues or character issues. If Peterson or another coach wanted to coach here I am sure they would have called Hart. This guy is much better than Dooley and if he can get a decent staff we will be competing for the East every year.

Written on Charlie Strong: "Toughest decision I've had to make" to turn down UT:

I am a die hard Vol fan but this is not good for UT's image. We are becoming the laughing stock for CFB. Schools all around us have found a coach but for some reason no coach wants this job. We are going to settle for another Dooley and going to hae 3 more years of 5-7. I think some high ups in UT land need to walk Mr. Hart and company out the door.
