Rocky Top Dumpster Fire Rages On
« on: January 18, 2021, 01:16:50 PM »
Wow, Pruitt was cheating AND sucking at the same time?!?  
Amazing.

Hey, when the AD writes down his list of HC candidates, is Fat Phil going to just skip down to the 20th guy this time?  Save him some embarrassment?

Fat Phil is "retiring" too!  The Vols and Noles are having a contest to see who can hit rock bottom first!

Phil Fulmer, to Santonio Beard, circa 1999/2000: "Alabama is going to be out of the football business"

Since then? ut has had 6 HCs. Bama has 6 NCs!

In the last 14 seasons, Tennessee is 1-27 vs Florida & Alabama.

I'd guess Dooley, though Jones is a competitor.

Pruitt MAY have tanked the program for a while, so he's in the running.

I'd say Dooley, just because of  his pre-Tennessee resume.  It sucked.  And at UT, he sucked.  Duh.

But then  you have Pruitt, who was their 23rd? choice.  Literally.  And the damage done is unknown, as Cincy had said.  

Having a 1-year hire was pretty bad, too, regardless of the record (Kiffin).  He dips out after a year by choice - it makes your program look "less than."

Anyway, plenty of canddiates, lol.

So, anyone care to guess at their prognosis over the next few seasons beyond the obvious?

We don't yet know what the NCAA may do.  Let's presume the new HC is a reasonably competent HC.

Can he turn it around fast enough not to get fired himself?

I think Heupel is a decent coach, stipulate that, probably not a miracle worker.

I would skip 2021, too much unknown, and the Vols could have a disastrous season, or they could be 8-5ish I think.

Further out, I think they can post 10-3/9-4/8-5 seasons fairly routinely, probably mixed in with worse years where they lose to UK or Mizzou or USCe or they draw LSU from the West.

 From The Athletic on UT's hire:

"Instead, we’ve got UCF North. Or North UCF? How about UCF-Knoxville? A slight rearranging of the letters in UCFK creates the exact word a large percentage of the Tennessee fan base said when Heupel’s hire became public, and exactly what zero percent of fans of other SEC teams said."
