    When Kiffin's last couple recruiting classes didn't pan out..It made a big difference this year & last year..As compared to his 1st year as their HC..He had more talent to work with his 1st year because a few of those bigtime recruits never made it to campus..If that makes any sense..

Last year's loss to UK was at the hands of a converted WR starting his first game ever at QB for UK, and the Kats literally ran about 6 different plays over and over, putting in a reduced playbook that week due to those extreme circumstances of having their top 3 quarterbacks injured. Dooley was 1-7 in SEC play last year, and 0-7 this year at the time of his termination. I've had the benefit (or should I say detriment?) of seeing some bad Vol teams in each of the Battle, Majors, and Fulmer era's, but none approached this past season IMHO. The Vol defense consistently gave up 2 or 3 plays each game of 70 yards or better, eked out a win over Troy and trailed Akron late in the third quarter. Granted, they challenged MSU and SC on the road, but could not finish. The Mizzou loss was the topper, blowing leads of 21-7 and 28-14 to lose in quadruple overtime. The guy (Dooley) just found a way to lose EVERY meaningful conference game in 3 years. I don't care how empty the cupboard was in 2009, this guy was never going to win if he had been allowed to stay a decade. Call it bad luck, being snakebit, the victim of the strongest era of the conference, or whatever. Simply put, his time on the Hill was a disaster. i wish CDD good luck with the balance of his career, and do not blame him for taking a lucrative job 3 seasons ago. He probably has some appeal as a recruiting coordinator or position coach, and good luck to him be it at Bama or elsewhere.
    So, basically Mike Shula 2.0

    I think the first thing he would have to do is burn those ugly orange pants.

    Wasn't Tubby hunting in Arkansas the week of a game once? (Giving rise to rumors he was going there once)>
