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 [...]

The 2012 Tennessee Volunteer football season concluded on Saturday. The Vols won’t see the field for 278 more days. That’s a long long time. Hopefully soon there will be some tangible news on who the next coach will be for the University of Tennessee. But until we get something tangible…let’s review one final time. The [...]

I incorrectly guessed that the Final Dooleyisms were going to be South Carolina week. We’ve had a couple of editions since. I still am wondering how many of these we’re gonna have. This one was tough to listen to and watch. He seems weary of the stress. Which is reasonable. That being said, I think [...]

Oh boy. Can I just repost what I wrote last week? Same old same old for the 2012 version of the Volunteers. The Good: Oh my, is this offense explosive. This team can score in buckets. They are averaging nearly 38 points a game. It’s so good, and so fun to watch. I’ve been down [...]

Boy- wow. Hmmm. This edition could be summed up in a few phrases. Good offense, bad defense, ugly crowd. But, why are these things in these particular categories. The Good Holy Offense Batman! Whenever you are breaking Peyton Manning’s records at Tennessee good things are happening on that side of the ball. Tyler Bray continued [...]

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 [...]

Saturday was the Third Saturday in October, and unfortunately, like it has been since 2006, the Tennessee Volunteers ended up on the wrong side of a 44-13 beat down. So on to the the Good, the Bad, and the Ugly.   The Good: Alabama sports one of the bet defenses in the nation, and in [...]
