    It's been a brutal month of October for anyone who is a Titans and Vols fan.

    I don't think the Vols score a point next Saturday against Bama unless Saban puts in the JV in the second half.

    Yea, the media is all over the fire Butch Jones train. Yet, they all seem to be defending Mularkey. I do not care for Butch. However, at least he has recent history that says he can consistently field a winning team. The offense of the Vols is terrible for sure. However, I do not see much difference in it & the Titans offense right now.

    Media is heralding the phins game as some sort of break-through for the Titans' defense. While we didn't play bad in Miami on defense; it was not some sort of turn around IMO. We just did not let a bad offense treat us as the cure we usually are......

    Mularkey is no different than Butch Jones. He is fielding an offense that is bad; and a defense that is below average. Yet for some reason he is getting a pass from the media.

    Butch brought the Vols out of the abyss. So I won't have any animosity towards him the way I do Dooley and Lame. At least we are back to having good recruiting classes again, and I can't fault Butch for accepting the job offer.

    I was hopeful for him. Don't think anyone, outside of huge names, could've done too much better in his first 3 maybe 4 years.

    That said, he has had a full chance at a 5 year run, which means a chance to recruit his own players and implement his style football and game plan and he failed. Good recruiter, bad coach. Time to go.

    Not a vols fan, nor college, my daughter, her fiance and my brother in law all are and are all "fire butch NOW'. I simply asked, "who are you going to hire?" Cricket noises was the response. As a previous poster said, Butch has taken UT to a level way above when he walked in the door and does recruit...if you happen to believe all the recruiting sources. That being said, when I watch UT players don't look particularly strong when comparing to top level SEC, such as bama. I was told that they didn't even have a strength coach until this year. Not sure if that is true. It seems to me that UT does get good players....maybe as many as other top programs...but for some reason, when they come to UT they don't "raise their game", and seem to just be waiting to be drafted. One man's opinion.

    I'd take him too but I think a NFL might jump on him to be a HC.
