    Charlie Strong might be available. From one UT to another...

    You're just being emotional right now.

    Charlie Strong beat UF and won a Sugar Bowl.

    I think even the delusional UT fans are officially of the B*tch Jones bandwagon after tonight.

    I was never a fan. Could never get behind hiring a guy who had a mediocre resume and lost to Dooley... but somehow this was ignored when he was hired because UT was so desperate.

    Barring some miraculous turnaround, he's a goner at the end of this season. I think he can survive if he makes it to 7-5. Otherwise, he's got to go. And let's be real, at this point 7-5 is out of the question.

    Looks like 4-8 of 5-7 now. Get out, B*tch.

    I'd gladly take Strong over Butch. But it does scare me how painfully bad Texas has been with him.

    I know they were slipping with Mack even, but they've been an embarrassment with Strong.

    I think Texas is just a bad fit for Strong. He has big FL connections, but it's tough to get kids to go all the way from FL to Texas. He's still trying to establish ties to high schools in Texas along with attempting to change a culture.

    When a kid is tweeting about how he should transfer to aTm at halftime of a 30-0 game, there are more issues than just the HC.

    I seriously doubt he gets a HC gig immediately after leaving Texas though.

    FSU should fire Charles Kelly and hire Strong as their DC.

    I was also skeptical about Texas hiring Strong. He's a good coach but Texas may not be the place for him.

    Also, his seat might warm up a little quicker than some other coaches. It IS Texas.. ;)

    You realize the buyout he has after Dave Hart gave him that extension?

    Butch Jones played our AD like Michigan had even a shred of interest in him to begin with and got an extension.

    Butch is here for 2016 at least.

    Sit back and enjoy the **** fest.

    Oh sh*t... Totally forgot he was extended. Never mind.

    Dave Hart is an idiot and needs to be fired. Take one look at that guy and you can tell he's a loser doucher.

    Let's extend a guy who went 12-13 in his first two seasons! Brilliant!

    Only teams Butch has beaten while at UT:

    Austin Peay
    Western Kentucky
    South Alabama
    Utah State
    UT Chattanooga
    Arkansas State
    Iowa
    Vanderbilt
    Kentucky
    South Carolina

    Pretty sure a homeless man (or woman) could've gotten this program the same results, if not better.

    B*tch Jones, you suck and you should admit you suck rather than making stupid excuses.

    No wonder this guy wasn't his wife's first choice.

    It goes deeper man.

    Butch was Hart's hire and his guy. Remember this **** is a business and it is all about the money.

    Butch brought in Debord at OC, a Michigan guy.

    Before Butch got the extension Hart's **** was getting weak in the athletic department.

    Out of nowhere Butch's name starts getting tossed around with the HC vacancy at Michigan. Anyone with an ounce of common sense would know Michigan is not hiring Butch Jones.

    Rumors are Debord used his connections at Michigan to stir up this nonsense so that Butch could go to Hart with an ultimatum, extend me or I'm going to Michigan.

    Realize that Butch is Hart's guy and if he walks then Hart is likely out at AD.

    Hart does what he does to secure his job another three years over what is best for the football program. He extends Butch knowing that he will remain in power as long as Butch has the HC job.

    It is a good old boys club. Favors all around.

    Butch will win 6-7 games this year and fire Jancek in January to appease the fans.

    A new DC will come in and the fans will be happy. Another good recruiting class and hype all summer will have the fans filing back into Neyland next season forgetting all about 2015.

    Rinse repeat.


    Mike Debord will not lose his job. 0% chance. Butch owes him.
