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


And that was after losing Bobby.
I'm saying that no one picked us to win it all. Nobody. That was what the original point to the post was.

I get that. But that isn't entirely correct.

You can't say "no one picked us" and then write off someone who did.

Didn't matter.  Too many senior impact defensive players from 2011 lost.  Not in chance in hell we would have come close.

I'm not saying we would have. I'm just saying it's incorrect to say no one in the media picked us to win the national championship in 2012.

If we compete with Tennessee for a potential coach, which school would the coach choose?
The last time that a coach was in that situation, he chose Arkansas.

The gain I could see n hiring a new coach now even if he didn't coach the team until the end of this season is that it could change the December signing of recruits.  This December signing was not a good idea from the point of view that several coaches will sign new recruits and within 30 days won't be the coach.

Besides, Bret has no reason to hang on, or maybe he does.  He may know that Jeff Long is trying everything he knows how to do to save his job.  Jeff didn't lay out a disclaimer about the Buyout money as you might expect an AD to do.  Why let that 15 million buyout fester if you knew the actual amount was much less.  Answer is that Jeff loved the idea that the buyout was much lower than the fans believed but would be 15 mil, a very good reason to retain Bret.  Jeff doesn't see that not winning is a problem at this point.  I fully believe he will retain Bret if he can find a way to sell the idea to is superiors.

So you want to hire an employed coach or one that just got fired?  And there are certainly some unemployed coaches I would be interested in.  I assume they aren't interested in us.

Apparently Butch Jones is already trying to steer recruits away from Tennessee.
