    Re: Tennessee has hired Butch Jones

    Can anyone on here truthfully admit they saw the Bielema hire at Arkansas? Why does this not happen all the time when a school is trying to hire a new HC? I understand the fans, the internet and the media float all kinds of names, but in the vast majority of the cases none of the names are hired or even interviewed. Think of all the names we heard for the Arkansas job; Petersen, Miles, Briles, Gundy, Tuberville, Franklin, Butch Davis, etc. then out of nowhere they hire Brett Bielema. It appears Jeff Long knew who he wanted for the job all along and kept it extremely lose to the vest. I really like it when a new HC is announced with total secrecy up to his introduction. Also I love it when the sports media and the espn so called experts are blindsided.

    Sorry, I do not. I did a cut/paste from the wiki page. I see that it has since been edited out.

    Hugh Freeze was a good FIT for Ole Miss, no matter his record. He knew the Mississippi land scape, had been a head coach (although all on a college level) for almost 15 years.

    Malzahn fits the same mold. He had 13 years of Head Coaching experience (albeit the High School level) before jumping to Arkansas. He does only have one year of Head Coaching experience at the college level, but he fits well at Auburn. He knows the lay of the land, and is primarily responsible for Auburn's success from 2008-2011.

    Butch Jones came up through the ranks, under the tuttledge of...wait for it...RICH RODRIGUEZ. He had his first head coaching job at Central Michigan. Brian Kelly had taken a Central Michigan team who had been to two bowl games in their history, and took them from 11 consecutive losing seasons to bowl eligibility. After he had a couple of classes under his belt, in steps Butch Jones to take over the already succesful program. Very similar at his next stop, where Kelly took a team who had been okay (7-8 wins a year), but had only ONE conference championship in the last 42 years at the time. Kelly won two Big East championships, and went to back to back BCS Bowls...and handed the keys to Jones. Who had a bad first year (4-8), but maintained reasonable success...even backing in to a conference championship this year...

    Sounds like a desperate hire for Tennesse, when the other school's got one of their primary targets...

    Re: Tennessee has hired Butch Jones

    Ive spent some time on Rocky Top Talk reading their articles on this hire. They've written five or six on it. They are less than thrilled to say the least. I cant blame them. If this were Bama circa 2006, I would be upset with this hire. He very well may be a great fit at UT, but the UT fan base doesnt think so. My favorite comment was "AD is Bama guy and the Chancellor is a UF guy. They are working together to keep us in mediocrity."

    Part of the lyrics of Rocky Top reference a girl, half bear and half cat. They bring a coach from Cincinnati, the Bearcats.
