    Will butch jones Survive?

    He is shouting at everyone that ut has won 9 games 3 years in a row and 3 straight bowl games. But they have not won the east, and he is 0-8 for The Sec West - 4 to Bama, also ole miss, lsu, arkansas and tamu

    If ut posts similar numbers this year, will he survive?

    The only way Botch survives a marginal season is if they cannot convince a halfway competent coach to replace him. Even die-hard Vol fans can't deal with the "Champions of Life" and "5-star hearts" nonsense.

    Of course, they couldn't find anyone competent last time, which is why they're stuck with him now.

    I may disagree with you, but I'm pretty sure you're not Hitler.

    IMHO, if they win 9, one of them has to be us. Otherwise, he`s gone.

    That's the stat that's telling. His resume is literately saying that he's beat (almost) everyone that he should have and he hasn't beat the teams that count. Looking at their schedule, they could legitimately lose 8 games. If he loses to the main guys again AND to Vandy, I think he's gone hands-down. I'm thinking making it to the SEC championship will solidify his job for 2018.

    He's only won 9 games 2 years in a row. The last time they beat a west non-Mississippi team was 2007 Arkansas.

    First, you spelled Botch incorrectly in the thread title.

    Second, no - he will eventually fired. Maybe not this season, but he will be. He's not a good coach, but I hope they keep him forever.

    And he's 14-18 against the SEC...

    Or poor Shoopy's - after he gets called back to Penn State to work off his indentured servitude...Wonder what kind of buyout you've got at UcheaT when your defense gives up 2,200 yards over three games?

    I think he survives a 9-3 regular season, but he'll need a marquee win and can't afford a "bad" loss.

    Like, 9-3 with wins over Florida and LSU or UGA. Can't lose to Vandy again.

    I'm sure they beat GT, but that would be the kind of loss that easily derails their season and causes him to get fired in week three.

    And I think that once UT fires Botch, Phil should hire Randy Sanders as head coach.
