My thinking was and still is for Tennessee to get a top quality football coach who is a proven winner they will have to go with a FCS coach who is willing to move up.

They should have hired Mike Houston who is now at ECU.

He's Proven winner with championships every where he has been and keeps moving up.  Some other big time program will recognize this eventually and we will have missed out again.
If everyone is thinking alike then somebody isn't thinking.

He wants a "top quality proven winner".  So do we all of course.  

I'd keep an eye on the Louisville coach, but I suspect he may end up at UNC down the road when Mack retires.

I'm an unabashed and unapologetic lifelong Vol fan so perhaps I'm looking at this with orange tinted glasses.
It's easy for fair weather fans and fringe observers to take swipes at a team after an embarrassing loss like last week  but I still feel there is a good possibility we come out with an " us against the world" attitude against BYU. If they don't then I agree...the season is lost along with any hope of having a decent recruiting year.
For those hoping we lose just as an excuse for getting rid of the coach or the AD you're  killing   any hopes of coming out of this football purgatory for another 10 years.
Maybe I'm being unrealistic but that's what real fans do....their expectations are unrealistic

Still awful early but CJP looked like a man already checked out. Win, lost, or whatever--if the Vol players and coaches aren't breathing fire (even chippy) this Saturday, I'd think K-ville might have an historically tough season. 

Tend to favor cincy's opinion on this... things are just too weird in Knoxville lately
