    Losing to us twice probably won't help his cause.

    haha thats true lol

    But in the grand scheme of things them making it to the SEC title game means they would have won the east and could argue that he's making progress. I think UcheaT is fickle enough to accept that as a reason to keep in a year longer. If they are on board with celebrating his moral victories over the past few seasons, they would do backflips for a SEC title appearance.

    According to a stat I saw today, UT has about 15 or 16 returning starters. I think he should be able to win 8 or 9 games and survive.

    Interesting dynamic - 16 returning starters, but the guys gone were playmakers. 16 starters back from a team UA annihilated, that lost to Vandy, needed auburn luck to beat tamu

    Also GT returns I think 16 starters, 10 of which ar Seniors, and are a 3 1/2 pt dog in Atlanta - I am probably playing GT as a live dog that Monday Night

    I think he gets terminated this year for not winning big last year. This is a plain and simple rebuild year but after the poor finish last year the natives are restless.
    I owe it to the people to have a signature...so here goes nothing!

    You are absolutely correct about losing play makers. However, he also got rid of a couple of guys who seemed to be team cancers. Then again, you are also absolutely correct that Botch has not prepared his guys consistently. The GT game could certainly build some love that has been lost from the fans. If he loses that game, forget what I said about winning 8 or 9; he's toast. If he wins it, he could again get to 8 or 9.

    Several have mentioned they won 9 while losing to Vanderbilt, but they also lost to USC. Imagine those two losses on the resume when you could be in Atlanta and then on to the Sugar Bowl.

I'm thinking making it to the SEC championship will solidify his job for 2018.
    I voted no because Every preseason top 25 poll I have seen (seven of them) has Tennessee Losing to Alabama, Florida, Georgia and LSU. I think 8-4 will be the end of him, but then Tennessee may be getting used to middle of the pack.

    Their administration doesn't seem like they are gung-ho to make a move like LSU was when they were dealing with Miles. At least with LSU, regardless of how bad they handled it, you can tell that the administration wasn't satisfied with Miles. For some reason, I truly believe UcheaT administration is ok with Jones ... but if he has a lackluster season, they won't be able to not react if the fans and alumni-base calls for a change.

    He had one of the best teams talent-wise that UT has had in years and he still finished 3rd in the East ... and if Kentucky didn't falter like they did ... he would have finished 4th. I can't honestly see how they (the administration) can justify that CBJ has the program in a good position.
