For Butch Jones to succeed, he's going to have to TAKE wins from very, very good football teams. That's not something he's good at, to be honest. During his career, he's beaten 1 top 25 team that I know of. That was us.
True, but to be fair he's never had anywhere close to top 25 talent. Which is the case again this year sadly.
TN fans will stay on board if we get to a bowl. Anything less and you will see some start to hop off. I would give him one more year of full support to make a bowl and still be on board, especially if he could keep up the recruiting.
My hope is 6-6 this year and 7-5 or better at least in 2015. I don't need a huge jump, I just need to see steady improvement.
