    Re: Tennessee has hired Butch Jones

    A TN fan must have edited Jones' wiki page. This is what they entered about his hire at TN:

    On December 7, 2012, amidst expectations by fans for a high profile coach, Jones was announced as the head coach at University of Tennessee. It is expected that Tennessee will see the lowest ticket and merchandise sales in their history. Jones is now making 3 million dollars a year, and is expected to start receiving his multi-million dollar buyout after losses to Vanderbilt and Kentucky in his first season. Tennessee does not want Butch Jones, but the athletic director and chancellor are from Alabama and Florida, respectively, and have no passion to see the University of Tennessee to be successful. Maybe the search for the next coach can start now and before Butch Jones gives Tennessee a even worse public image.

    Derek Dooley beat Butch Jones 45-23 last year.

    That's all you need to know about the hire.
    Fool me once, shame on me. Fool me twice? Congratulations, you'd probably make a pretty good con-man.

    I just moved Cincinatti from 25 to 11 in Confidence Points. Gamblers had already moved the opening line of 11 to 7.

    From Butt Chuggers to Butch Chuggers, UT never disappoints.

    Re: Tennessee has hired Butch Jones

    This is going to cause a temporary firestorm.

    Here is what's underwhelming for me after a quick study on Wiki. He followed Brian Kelly at both Central Michigan in the mid 2000's and then Cincinnati in 2009 and basically held the teams in check for 3 years at each. The teams were already built imo. Tennessee is a rebuilding job. No experience.

    Here is his record at those schools.....total of 6 seasons as a head coach at non BCS teams. This is a Mississippi State type coach, not Tennessee!

    2007 Central Michigan 8–6 6–1 1st (West) L Motor City
    2008 Central Michigan 8–5 6–2 T–2nd (West) L Motor City
    2009 Central Michigan 11–2 8–0 1st (West) GMAC* 25
    Central Michigan: 27–13 20–3 * Did not coach bowl game
    Cincinnati Bearcats (Big East Conference) (2010–present)
    2010 Cincinnati 4–8 2–5 7th
    2011 Cincinnati 10–3 5–2 T–1st W Liberty 21 25
    2012 Cincinnati 9–3 5–2 T-1st

    Here's hoping he holds TennerC in check as well.

    The only reason I hate to see this is for Hart. He probably just shorten his stay considerably.

    Jones?? not Davis?? really?

    Those UcheaT folks sure get confused easily. Wait until they find out that they hired the wrong 'Butch'..
