Bushleague I would also bet you that Worley runs for less than 100 yards also. . . . And that Vol fans will say after a victory over an over-matched MOCS team " Next year UT is really going to be good" and " If we had played like this we would have beat Florida " . . . . Or after losing to Bama, Ole Miss, Ky, etc. " I blame this loss on the law firm Of Fulmer, Hamilton, Kiffin, Dooley "
WilliamRscott- of the last 7 hires in the SEC ( The greatest-conference-that-ever-lived-of-all-time ) only 1 school ( Arkansas ) hired a coach with success at a Big 5 school as a head coach.
Hey, Bushleague I will bet you any amount of money that you can afford that the Mocs get the ball past midfield. And i have no limit on that bet. What you got ?
Also without Keon Williams the Mocs will have trouble moving the ball and that will put alot of pressure on the defense to have to stay on the field. Paschall's prediction looks pretty accurate. i do know this, though The Mocs WOULD have scored at least ONE TD against Florida. . . .
Jay- question for Friday mailbag. Unless you are a UTK fan living in denial ( and no, not a river in the mid-east ) there is no question that Butch Jones name will come up for the much anticipated vacancy at Michigan. Being a Michigan native and Michigan probably being Butchy's dream job. What would be the ramifications for the Vols if this happens ? Michigan fan blog mgoblog.com already has a full page pro/con on Jones and lists him as a top 5 candidate for the job. Considering that the Harbaughs will stay in the NFL, it is very likely that Jones will be contacted and he will at least listen. Also knowing Dave Hart and the way he operates, he will not get in a bidding war. And Michigan has more money than anybody other than Texas. Who would the Vols go after to replace Jones ? and if Jones flirts with the job, what would happen to some of these early commitments in the 2015 class ?
If you dont think the people in Michigan are already talking about Butch check this out http://mgoblog.com/diaries/coaching-candidate-butch-jones-he-follows-brian-kelly-everywhere-his-price-fancy
i would agree that Michigan will go to the Harbaughs first and maybe Miles ( although once he turned them down I dont think they will go back to him ), it is never the first guy that is offered who gets or takes the job. Heck Jones wasnt UTK's first, second or third choice. Jones will be in the mix for Michigan and he will be interested. he may not get offered, but he has to be intersted and listen if they call, its his home state and "dream job" and its MICHIGAN still one of the biggest and best jobs
I think Michigan sees the recruiting rankings, how well the UTK people think Jones is doing a phenomenal job, etc. Their AD will look past the record . . . . . So if anyone is a fan they either have to think Jones is doing great and if so, you could understand Michigan's interest, or do fans think Jones is doing a bad job and Michigan will have no interest. You cant really have it both ways. . . if you are being honest, dont you think Jones would do great at Michigan ? and be a perfect fit there ? Midwest guy, Michigan native , etc.. . .and still possible for UTK to upset S. Caroline and Ky beat Vandy and get to 6-6 and take UTK to a bowl game for UTK's first time in a million years. That would look pretty good to Michigan. . . .and one thing that is a given, Dave Hart will NOT get in a bidding war to keep Jones, not the way he does business
I think Michigan will NOT be interestedin Les Miles, since he turned them down last time and is similar to what they have in age,alum, etc with Hoke. The message boards ( michigan) all expect, as most do that the Harbaughs will turn them down to stay in the NFL. Many Michigan people want Michigan native, Butch Jones. And if Michigan calls, Butch will listen. It is his home state and his "dream job". and remember, Michigan has more money than almost any school except Texas and the largest number of living alumni. Its a top 5 job for sure and an easier path to the 4 game playoff. . . . IF Michigan offers the job to Jones, he is gone
fechancellor- would you still let Butch Jones, the Michigan native, date your sister when he leaves for his quoted " dream job" Michigan ?
