HA! Here's another...
Butch Jones @Vols_Butch
Saban: short Miles: dumb Muschamp: nutball Spurrier: old Richt: who? I'm fixin to run these chumps for years to come.
1 month ban bet? I will give you the choice:
ND vs. Bama
SC vs. Mich
LSU vs. Clemson
I will take the SEC team in any of those matchups you want. My guess is you don't really believe any of this BS your spewing.
If you want the ultimate, you've got to be willing to pay the ultimate price. It's not tragic to die doing what you love.
Done. Michigan will beat SCar.
Done. Excellent choice too!
The stupidity in this thread is appalling.
I think next on their list was Jerry Sandusky
The RANT is a Romper Room for Degenerates - jwe
this thread is gonna be fun to come back to in a year...
What will have happened in a year?
Gamecocks go 0-12...
More like compete with UF for the East. We have a favorable schedule next year.
Lol at UT
Doesn't follow CFB at all
I always find these threads funny because they are so full of fail.
It's obvious the OP is talking out of his ass, it's unlikely he knows Butch Jones history very well, and just assumed because he coached in the MAC and the Big East he is crappy.
New coaches have to move up the ranks somehow, so just saying he is crap because of where he has coaches is dumb as hell. Meyer had only coaches at Utah before moving to the SEC and dominating teams such as your own. Actually learn something before making dumb posts and assuming the guy can't coach.
Trolling should be clever, or at least make sense.
I love how this thread started trying to laugh at Tennessee and now you guys are arguing over bowls. The SEC is better because of the number of quality teams. Some of these SC fans are acting like our teams are unbeatable? they're not haha they're just very good and we have a high number of very good teams in our conference. That's what makes our conference the best. Going back to the original topic though, many prominent names have a lot of faith in Butch Jones and think that this might have been the best hire possible. I hope you guys have enjoyed us having our down years because deep down you know we're too good of a program to stay down long. We almost beat Georgia and SC this year and we had the worst defense in school history. We now have a proven winner at the helm and we'll be back. Give Butch some time. Wouldn't surprise me to pull an upset or two next year. Going back a 4-3 defense will help tremendously.
Someone's mad. I'm actually quite familiar with his history. It's mostly northern based, with no experience in the south. If he was such a solid hire, he would have been contacted earlier, not the 7th or 8th choice. Fact is he has zero recruiting ties in a recruiting area that is meh at best. Morons ITT comparing him to Urban and Kelly need to have their heads examined. It was an underwhelming hire where UTjr. settled once again. Ask most of their fans, and they'll tell you the same.
It should not be close. That's for sure.
The guy was 3rd choice for UT at best. I have not talked to many of their fans that are happy about the hire either. Its hard to call your 3rd string guy a home run, no matter what his past.
As for the Mich v. SC game. I don't think it is a blowout like some of you, I do think we win though. Probably around a 30 - 21 type game.
Many USC fans were underwhelmed with Pete Carrol when he was their 3rd or 4th choice and it worked out well. You are familiar with his history? Does that mean you read his wikipedia page? Have you ever watched his teams, or actually done any concrete research on the guy? Doubtful.
UT might have gotten their 3rd choice, but that by no means he is a bad coach. I have no idea if Butch will succeed at UT, but anyone like you predicting certain failure without a lick of knowledge of how the guy runs his teams is funny.
who was the last coach at UC before Butch(haha I said Butch.. anyways)?? Oh wait.. Brian Kelly.. hmmm interesting.. I dont really care to be honest, but it seems to be a good launching pad for good coaches in years past.. Tenn might just get lucky.. I just hope I don't have to see a story on Butch wearing orange pants..
I'd wait and see before calling anything a failure, and plenty of programs have not gotten their first choice before hiring an excellent coach.
I know plenty of Michigan fans were furious about the Hoke hire originally, especially after going for the likes of Miles and Harbaugh and failing. But I'd doubt you find many Michigan fans who aren't for the most part happy about the Hoke hire now.
It can easily work out for Tennessee, and lots of football people seem to respect Butch Jones. I think the guy will work out for UT in the end, certainly better than there last two hires.
