RE: TN high school talent - how many recruits from that state have contributed for us compared to SC natives that have contributed to UT? End debate.

I'm not sold on Butch Davis being the savior at UT. And I'm not sold on their ability to legitimatly recruit top ten classes. They've been caught in the past and may get caught again. I would really like for us to get another big name coach after Spurrier leaves and I think he will help us do so. But I don't want one that is not going to do it without running a squeaky clean program.

Utk will not be fighting for the east any time soon. Datboyjr is their coach. Yes they won this year but not because of anything bi+ch did. Face it tuck has been passed and with their debit it doesn't look like they will catch up anytime soon. Also let's see how this class for utk actually unfolds, either a lot of pissed off kids or a lot of NCAA VOLilations..

More importantly let's enjoy our sunny days here without polluting our space with the stinking UT second arrival. Peace!

Check-out SEC East standings to confirm. Despite horrible Florida season UT finished behind them.

I agree, stability is the absolute number 1 thing Tennessee needs. And it isn't just at the HC level, its at every coaching position. We have had 4 OC's since 2007 and 5 DC's since 2007. They each bring their own systems and position coaches. That is why none of our "talent" we've recruited have been developed.

We finally have a staff who have been together a long time and are working to build something together. You will see the improvement on the field come because of that, IMO.

We've only been caught once in our history for dirty recruiting and it was during Kiffin's one year stint.

We have an AD who was a winner and knows winners. He will hire one after the HBC decides to hang it up sometime in the next decade.

We have been fortunate to have SOS. He has laid a strong foundation on and off the field.

Tanner knows what it takes to win.
I would not get too comfortable if I were UT or cU though I think they are going to be a factor. Carolina is not going anywhere.
The HBC and Tanner have owned UT and cU, don't think Ray will let that change.

Congrats! One time is a fluke. You still finished the 2013 season in the SEC East cellar with KY though. See you at our place in 2014 and you'll have my respect if UT wins. Fact you must admit is that UT is looking-up to USC nowadays/Vols permanently in the rear-view mirror of the Gamecocks to the near future!

We are looking up at the Cocks for sure. It won't be till 2015 that we could possibly be back up on your level.

Tenn is probably on the way up. It's bound to happen when you sign 75 players in a recruiting class.

Spurrier, while building SC into a great program, is in his final 3-5 years at most. I think it is safe to assume that SC is either at its peak or very near their peak as a program for the foreseeable future. I could see a few more very good seasons for yall, but in no way will the next coach there be able to sustain what he has done. This is obviously my opinion.

Florida is a disaster. While they could be one hire away from a complete quick turnaround, you can at least see a couple more seasons of average teams for them.

UGA fans are back on the fire Richt bandwagon after an 8-5 season. He is refusing to fire Grantham and Bobo and I think is on his final years as well. They will continue to under achieve under him and even if they do replace him are they guaranteed to even stay at the level he's had them?

Kentucky will always suck.

That leaves Missouri, which is a solid program with a good coach, but will never have recruiting advantages that others in the SEC East have. They will pop up every few years when the stars align for them, but overall they won't ever be the top East program, IMO.

That leaves the Vols. The early reports are that the 14 EE's we just enrolled are some of the best talent we've had in years. Also with likelihood of adding a couple more 4 stars down the stretch and a very good beginning of the 2015 class, we look to be turning the Titantic around.

We do have the hardest West draw every year, but y'all add A&M now and LSU and Auburn are always great as well which UF and UGA have to play.

I really think the changing of the guard is in full motion, I see the light at the end of the seemingly endless tunnel. 2014 I think will give you a glimpse into that future of the Vols, but there will likely be a few more bumps in the road. But in 2015, I think you will officially see the changing of the guard and the Vols will be back on top of the SEC East competing for titles again!


Sorry I just had to get that off my chest. Proceed to bash away.
I laughed so hard when I read that.
