Yah my buddy is a Vols alum close to the program and he's pretty much saying the same...But hey, crazier things have happened before in the world of CFB especially in the SEC...A losing streak to EVERY SEC team pretty much gets you walking papers...

I really think Butch Gones...😉 ;)

You mean it's possible to fire a coach before the end of the season?  For losing?

The truth is the Tennessee job has been open in all but name for weeks. If they are announcing now then it probably means they already have their man and are just waiting for the season to end. I just hope they didn't land Norvell.

According to Chris Low he was given the option to coach the remainder of the season and see if they could become bowl eligible. He declined, remaining home dates against LSU and Vandy.

I think it depends on the the candidates...
Norvell or Gus, guys with Arkansas ties, I'd say we would obviously have the advantage.
All things equal, I'd say Tenner is probably the more attractive job at this point.
Better recruiting history (top 15 classes compared to top 30 classes)
SEC East schedule
Just my opinion

UT has a richer tradition and, although the program has lost its luster, is a national brand. It could be built back up with the right coach.

Even Nutt won more than he lost and was ranked many times.  CBP just took us to another level and he did fast.  Just because CBB has us playing like Vandy thats not our norm.

I disagree.  It should have been the headline after Mizzou last year.  If not then, after VaTech.  If not then, USCe.

Jones must be a terrible coach; never followed his career so, don't know.  Do know that he has been recruiting well while at Tenn.

Not a terrible coach.  But, he was a below-average trumpet player.

It depends. He may realize that he has lost the team and fans. If he sticks around it could impact attendance and add to the vitriol that is coming from the base. Walking away now gives them closure and they can move on to the next chapter.

Don't see why we can't get to next week and announce mizzou will be his last game.

He did a lot more riding than on that motor cycle. Do any of you Petrino huggers think he would still be here if that had not happened? I honestly think he would have moved on at the first rough patch. It is his nature.

In hindsight, yes, after Auburn.  I was willing to see how he bounced back after getting his dork knocked in the dirt.  He did not, and that should have revealed to everyone what's inside. 

He is an empty vessel trying to fill it, apparently, with food.  Not a fat joke, either.  I hope he gets his life together and rejuvenates himself for his family.

Actually for what it is worth there were a few that picked us to win it all. Skip Bayles was one. Most people thought we would have another 10 win season before and after the ride.

OK...Skip Bayless. Wow, a mouth breather. Here is the what REAL preseason predictions looked like:

Lindy's - 3rd in SECW
Athlon - 3rd in SECW
Phil Steele - 3rd in SECW
USA Today - 3rd in SECW
ESPN - 3rd in SECW
CBS Sports - 3rd in SECW
CNNSI - 4th in SECW
Rivals - 3rd in SECW
FoxSports - 3rd in SECW
Sporting News - 3rd in SECW

None of those publications had us winning it all. Most had picked Bama, a few had Ohio State and one had Oregon.

Which is what we finished in 2011. As I said, many thought a 10 win season was possible.


And that was after losing Bobby.
