    Would anybody be interested in trying out a REALLY good HS football coach? Gary Rankin from Alcoa would be someone to look at. Championships with Alcoa and Riverdale. Man can coach.

    You UT fans need to chill. Consider a few things...1. where the program was when Butch came on board. 2. What are realistic expectations for the program? 3. Very, very young team. Still either 2nd or 3rd youngest in the country. 4. Recruiting is what builds programs.
    1. Program was in the ****ter...no other words for it. 2. UT isn't bama...it isn't LSU, it isn't auburn...but they should be able to compete with gators, Georgia "most" years. 3. Young teams have to GROW up...in the weight room and learning how to WIN. 4 Butch has done a great job of recruiting...perhaps the best since fulmer "prime" years. So, to summarize UT fans...chill out...if you still are not winning the SEC east in two years fire away...until then relax.

    I'm not even really a UT fan but there's just no excuse for BOTH of those blown 4th quarter lead losses. Butch will probably get another year regardless but there's no way he deserves two more years. He's shown nothing. It's kinda like a Munch situation where everyone just keeps waiting around for him to miraculously turn into a good coach. Not happening.

    I sort of figure it is the growing process of a young team. Yes, they should have won both those games...but truthfully I didn't see a coaching decision that lead to either defeat...more like as I said young players...freshmen and sophomores that are quite ready yet. Now I will say this.....I would have made a QB change yesterday...Dobbs isn't near the passer that Dormady is, he, Dormady is a much better passer....not the dual threat of Dobbs for sure but a better passer.

    Oklahoma game put me on fence.

    I give him credit where it is due. Athletes he recruited have been better people than in the past. Not perfect, but better.

    beats the teams UT should.


    I got nothing else.


    I will shed no tears when he goes

    You sound like Butch.

    Compete bull****.

    Tell Michigan and Florida that you can't win early.

    He is a bad coach. It was a dumb hire.

    You stood in a burning house with Dooley too so I'm not surprised you are doing the same with Butch.
