I wouldn't say he was completely wrong. Butch Jones has had two recruiting classes to do something about it. It's a tough task, not an impossible one. And I'm going out on a blind limb, but I'd say most new hires have significant holes.
But they adjust. There is zero adjustment in UT's offe...

[quote]Wait......Wut? What exactly are you protesting? I know you don't want Butch fired so what would you have those in charge do differently? It'd be one thing if Dooley hadn't been fired and we didn't show up to protest him still being employed but he was fired and we all agree butch needs more t...

I think you could make a reasonable argument that the best thing you can do for the program is to stop showing up. I'm not sure the folks in charge will care until you stop showing up....

The scheme is not changing. The coaches refuse to use a TE chip block...you think they are going to change a whole scheme?
There are only two outcomes here. Butch either recruits well enough to his system that he makes it work, or we bomb miserably....

I would argue nuclear fission is inherently unstable because it takes a bit of effort to maintain a critical fission reaction...
| Tennessee Sports|| re: This got damn team - NukemVol on 10/6/14 at 9:05 am|
It's the Oline, the coaching, and the QB, and none of them are helping each other. Since it sucks to blame college kids who are obviously trying, and trying hard (Worley is a gamer), then I have no choice but to blame coaching. And on that front, firing coaches would do no good. The offense is Bu...

For the average person, I'd say that's high. And I agree with the person above. There's a lot of retirement calculators out there, too many really. And they will all give varying answers....
| Political Talk|| re: 97 hours of consensus - NukemVol on 9/10/14 at 8:23 am|
I don't believe they are wrong. But before they reach into my pockets, I would like them to actually predict something with their models. Not just fudge them until they look like they predicted something.
That's on the science side. No matter what their consensus is on that, I know with 100% fa...

I dispute that I'm not going to games because I don't want to be close to black people. If I cared, I would be offended. I don't go to games because I hate going to downtown Atlanta. I hate fighting through an hour and a half of traffic, and I hate waiting for 30 minutes for MARTA after a game, ...

I dislike have $120 bill (2 phones) going to Verizon. But I tried the cheap phone thing (Virgin Mobile) and the service stunk. I like picking up my phone, and knowing it's going to work. And really it's not that much cheaper. It was $45 for one phone that didn't work, vs. $60 for a phone that do...

Also Jawuan James has done ok. I'd give both a B. Not that it matters....

I've had a totally different experience than what this thread seems to tell.
I found the car I wanted through test drives only. Left, no crap taken. Then I emailed a bunch of dealers within driving distance. Those that didn't negotiate through email were never an option. I had two or three pl...
