    Not that soon. Younger Bama fans should make a point to fully learn the history of Tennessee's deceit. Be vigilant. As sure as you draw your next breath, that snake will strike again. Or we could all just soften up and say "Golly gee, Tennessee's not so bad, this is a great rivalry!" See what happens then.

    Lies, propaganda, and disinformation. Butch is the greatest coach at 10rc since General Neyland, and I hope he retires in Knoxville 😁

    Re: Inside the Failing of Tennessee Program Under Butch Jones

    Great read, thanks for posting. I admit, I bought into the Tennessee hype at the beginning the season because I felt that the program had made steady progression in Butch's first 3 yrs and that they were due for a comeback. But after all that has happened, this article just confirms what I already thought--Butch is just in over his head. He's basically an '8-4' coach that is probably more suited for a mid-level program in the Midwest or Rust Belt. Barring a miraculous turnaround next season and much to the chagrin of us Bama fans, he's going to be fired.

    Seconded. Give that man a 1 billion dollar buyout and let the good times roll.

    Jones comes across as a man with serious anger issues. He is setting a bad example for the Tennessee players. Some of the TN guys are already trying to play rougher than the rules allow. I blame Butch.

    And, in reality, isn't that what UT really is? An '8-4' type program? Since the 1957 season (year before Coach Bryant came to Bama), they've had fourteen 10+ win seasons. In contrast, we've had 30. I think Butch has built them back up to where they actually are supposed to be. So, keep up the good work Coach!!!

    In 1974, everyone on my floor at Rose Tower hated 10RC, long before Fullmer. Always have, always will.

    I agree. As much as I try to put the Fulmer stuff behind, I don't think it will happen.

    “We’ll be working to be champions each and every day,” Jones told reporters in December 2012. “We will be a champion in everything we do.”


    Champions of Life!


    ETA: Travis Haney is a good reporter but I do not like articles that mention this or that "source." I understand why anonymity is necessary but this is a dumb pet peeve of mine. If all of this is true then this ship has sailed a long time ago. I know several UT fans who want both the AD and football coach from UTC.

    The problem is that Botch hasn't had time to turn the program around. They could fix this by extending his contract by at least five years and doubling his buyout to show faith in him.
