From shower hygiene to…

Does anybody else get the feeling that the typical Tennessee player is lacking in certain life experiences that come normally to most people in college?  Or is it just that SOD and Booch happen to be weirdly detail-obsessed?

    I think Butch is just a tool that likes to talk a lot to try to make himself seem smart.

    I’m still not getting it. He lost games he shouldn’t have last year and really hasn’t beaten anyone outside of SC in 2013 that would turn your head. He recruits very well, but I would’ve expected a little more by this point. Honestly Brett B. at Arkansas inherited as bad a situation. I think perhaps it’s not viewed that way because you don’t have to go back as far to see a good Arkansas team. But they had an attrocious recruiting class the year before he arrived and lost a lot of the talent BP had assembled to graduation and the draft. He’s doing virtually the same in a tougher division with less talent if the recruiting gurus are correct. But doesn’t get nearly the coverage. Strange.

      Good comments. It isn’t TN isn’t going to improve but there is a long way from sucking to a championship. Might they upset a team or two this year? Of course, but their schedule is too tough for a championship run unless other teams fall off. As you point out, Jones is still looking for his first decent victory, but he does have potential as a cheerleader if TN fails to beat 7-5….again. Lot of noise out of Knoxville while, as you point out, Old Bart has a team capable of making it to Atlanta this year, and had as couple of big wins in 2014.

        You have to wonder if all the preseason hype and optimism might be a very bad thing for Jones. After the big buildup, if UT has another 7-5 season, the toothless inbreds might not be as forgiving as they have been so far.

          Definitely has added pressure, the fans were ecstatic after the last two years with minimal achievements and better recruiting. He is taking a big risk by letting it rise to the level it is now, and it will be tougher to recruit with more spots locked up and another season of average play…and maybe an unhappy group of fans. The Mizzou flop at home, and tough struggle with Vandy is what tells me they don’t really have the players in place. Mizzou was a must win at the time and they were barely competitive in Neyland and Vandy meant a bowl bid and they had to reach deep to pull it out. Sgt Carter seems more a snake oil salesman than a foundation builder to me. I hope they do have some success, they have brought the perception of the conference down, but I want nothing but a UGA rout on Oct.10 and another East crown for the Dawgs while the Vol fans sit home and slobber.

  3. I don’t think he’s a good in-game coach. Dobbs didn’t do anything in a game that mattered – including that bowl win over Iowa. We’ll find out how good Tennessee is when Boomer Sooner rolls into Knoxville. I know I should be a conference loyalist, but I want the Sooners to roll the Vols. I want the brick wall to come crashing down on top of our favorite high school band member turned football coach.

    Are the sleep coaches male or female? How do you coach sleeping (don’t anyone dare mention the FU game)?

    “Ok, ok, ….here’s your Teddy…and you can put the tooth you lost in the Georgia game under your pillow and Butc…I mean the Tooth Fairy, will leave you $100 …don’t pee on your Boo again…and don’t let the bedbugs bite. Here’s your sleep mask and…..What’s in my hand?..Oh, It’s a hammer to..uh…just put on your mask and then you can see stars before you nod off.”

    Okay, so why is it even necessary for the University of Tennessee to issue “sleeping couches” to its football players? Sleeping on a couch is bad for the back and the players’ posture. The players will get lazy, neglect their studies and start taking naps on the sleeping couch during the day–while watching television! I simply see no reason……what’s that? It’s sleeping “COACHES”–not sleeping “COUCHES?” Oh……….well…….who would have ever thought some university would hire coaches to teach football players how to sleep? Of course I would be confused by that! It is the stupidest thing I have ever heard!!!……Never mind…..
