Butch- Day 4

1 comment

Sorry, I had a lot going on this weekend, and I was not able to get everything up and going. Butch Jones had his debut press conference on Friday, and the weekend had no shortage of news. The only coach from Derek Dooley’s staff that was retained was Running Back’s coach Jay Graham. Jones brought [...]

FINALLY!

In what seems like the longest 3 weeks in the history of the Tennessee Volunteers we finally have a coach! After the rumors and offers of Jon Gruden, Charlie Strong, Mike Gundy, Rich Rodriguez, Hue Jackson, Bo Pelini, James Franklin, Al Golden, Larry Fedora, and probably dozens of others, the Vols have decided on Cincinnati’s [...]

So obviously last week wasn’t the final Dooleyisms. This week’s Dooleyisms is kinda bi-polar. Offensively, the man was reasonably pleased. Defensively not so much. Just like the rest of Volunteer nation. On The Defense: Of course defense, a lot of problems that haven’t gone away. You look at the first half and we gave up [...]

Tennessee went to Columbia yesterday. The story is a familiar one. The Vols played well, but not well enough. There were bright spots in Williams-Brice stadium, and I am assuming, that many of the 86,000 Gamecock fans in attendance were nervous that the Volunteers were going to steal a game late. To the objective and [...]

Johnny Majors met his end after the South Carolina game in 1992. Phil Fulmer met his end after the South Carolina game in 2008. Is Derek Dooley next? Can he survive a drop to 3-5. I guess that will remain to be seen.  Dooley himself said they have one more shot against a top 10 [...]

The Vols had a late kickoff Saturday in Starkville, MS. I didn’t fall asleep until well after 2am after the 41-31 loss. So many thoughts were swirling through my head. I am trying to figure out what part of UT’s recent past is because of Derek Dooley, or in spite of him. I am still [...]

It’s Mississippi State week, and the best I can figure is that this is the most important game on the schedule. Most Vol fans I have talked to seem to think 8-4 is enough for him to return to Knoxville. Alabama and South Carolina still loom this month. So is this the most important game [...]

A short but sweet edition of the Dooleyisms. This week we learn that older more mature players are better than immature players, who’s playing well, and who’s not.   On the Bye Week I feel pretty good about how we handled the open date. I feel like we got a lot accomplished. We worked them [...]

Saturday the Vols traveled to Athens, it started out BAD. Like, I actually considered turning off the tv bad. With five minutes to go in the first half Tennessee was down 27-10, and Cordarrelle Patterson had dropped a sure touchdown, and from that point on Tennessee made a game of it. It wasn’t a win, [...]

Tennessee and Alabama both had easy games on Saturday. Oh, wait, UT didn’t? They were tied with Akron at the half? Hmmm? They won right? Ok. Well then on to the week 4 reviews to see how bad Steve and I were this week. Florida Atlantic at Alabama Steve Says: Four weeks in and the [...]
