Apathetic fans are a worse sign than angry fans, and I sensed a lot of apathy in Neyland today. Not a good sign.

College Football Hot Seat Rankings: How long is Barry Odom’s leash at Missouri?


Quote
Butch Jones is starting to feel that heat, too, even though the Volunteers were victorious on Saturday against Massachusetts. It’s how his team looked in that win, combined with how the Vols have played all season, that explains how Jones’ time in Knoxville might be winding down.

But is Jones’ seat the hottest in the country?

7. Barry Odom, Missouri
Barry Odom fired his defensive coordinator, DeMontie Cross, but that move hasn’t made a difference.

Odom was Mizzou’s defensive coordinator in 2015, the final season of the massively successful Gary Pinkel era. Under Odom’s guidance, though, the Tigers have been downright offensive.

4. Kevin Sumlin, Texas A&M
Sumlin’s seat is about as hot as it can be for a coach whose team is 3-1, but that’s still far cooler than had Texas A&M not pulled out a 50-43 overtime win over Arkansas

3. Butch Jones, Tennessee
Tennessee has won 25 of its past 35 games after an 8-12 start to the Butch Jones era, so why is he on this list? Because most of those losses have seemed to come as all signs pointed to the Volunteers getting over the hump and returning to the elite level

@ClayTravis

No one with a functional brain can defend Butch Jones remaining Tennessee coach. Fire him Sunday.

College football hot seat rankings: Time for Butch Jones to update resume'


Quote
2. Sean Kugler, UTEP
[Already gone]

1. Butch Jones, Tennessee
2017 record: 3-2, 0-2 SEC

Record at school: 33-23 (5th season)

Last week’s ranking: 3rd

Being the coach of the “Champions of Life” isn’t as great as it sounds. Not when your team looks like it has given up on you.

Butch Jones on the hot seat in Tennessee? Houston Nutt says ‘it’s just a fact’


Quote
    “He is, it’s just a fact,” Nutt said, according to SEC Country’s Blake Morgan. “You’re in a great place with great facilities. I used to tell all my coaches, ‘We’re always on the hot seat.’

    “Unless you’re Nick Saban, you’re on the hot seat. That’s just the way it is. Accept it, embrace it.  That’s why you get paid big money.”

Nutt, the former Arkansas and Ole Miss coach who now works as a CBS Sports Network analyst, was the featured speaker at the Knoxville Quarterback Club on Monday.

Football limbo, gumbo-style: An unwinnable situation for LSU, Orgeron and Alleva

LSU is in a bind with a coach too expensive to buy out and an AD who can't be trusted to replace him


Quote
Five games into a five-year contract, critics are suggesting the school write a $12 million buyout check to Ed Orgeron after the Tigers lost to Troy.

Five days after last week's disturbing FBI investigation upped the ante on the out-of-control nature of college athletics, Tiger Nation was going all-in.

Orgeron's departure would also be absolutely welcome in large swatches of this state. LSU is used to being better. This week, its coach might have Butch Jones as his biggest ally. The Tennessee coach with his own set of problems is at least diverting attention in the gossipy SEC.

They can't fire Orgeron, of course. Not now because of the upheaval, the ego, the optics, the cash commitment it would take.

You know, all the reasons LSU is in this rut in the first place. The man responsible for it all refused an interview request from CBS Sports.

Athletic director Joe Alleva usually does that when times get tough …

Butch Jones says ‘We’ll be fine,’ focused on team, not hot seat


Quote
Tennessee’s bye week presented coach Butch Jones with the opportunity to close off access and avoid difficult questions, but that didn’t happen on Tuesday.

Jones, who many believe to be on the proverbial hot seat after a 41-0 loss to Georgia dropped his team to 3-2 this season, met with the media after putting his team through a full equipment practice.

“All our focus is on South Carolina, all of our focus is on this work week,” Jones said, asked about potential distractions as the Vols use the bye week to begin preparing for their next game on Oct. 14 against the Gamecocks in Neyland Stadium. “It doesn’t affect me or the staff at all.

“We live in a week to week society, and you build relationships with these young men and their families, they’ve been here a lot on campus, they know what we’re about as coaches, they know what we are about as people and they know our players,” Jones said of the Tennessee’s 2018 recruiting class, which ranks as the best in the SEC.

“They know our program and they know where we’re headed and what we’ve been able to do.”

College Football Hot Seat Rankings: Bret Bielema’s buyout the only thing keeping him safe

1. Larry Fedora, North Carolina

2017 record: 1-5, 0-3 ACC

Quote
For this reason — and this reason only — Tennessee’s Butch Jones gets a one-week reprieve from being projected as the next guy to get the ax.

Another name you won’t see on here is Texas A&M’s Kevin Sumlin, despite his presence on the list every week to this point. The Aggies lost Saturday, snapping a four-game winning streak, but falling 27-19 at home against No. 1 Alabama is quite an impressive performance and Sumlin appears to have his team moving in the right direction.

Coaches on this list are ranked in order of their likelihood not just to get the boot during the season, but to be sent packing first, and it’s heavily influenced by recent results. Jones isn’t on there this time but he’s sure to be back in a week if Tennessee struggles next Saturday against South Carolina.

3. Bret Bielema, Arkansas

Busy bye week takes Tennessee’s Butch Jones from ‘hot seat’ to ’embattled’


Quote
Butch Jones has gone from the proverbial “hot seat” to “embattled” status with a pending quarterback change and the suspension of Darrell Taylor in the same week.

Jones is fighting for his job coaching the Vols (3-2, 0-2 SEC) with South Carolina (4-2, 2-2) headed to Neyland Stadium for a noon kick on Saturday (ESPN).

The Vols are looking to start the season 4-2 for what would be only the second time in the last 10 years. That’s the crazy part — a win gives Tennessee its second-best start to a season since 2007.

But the winds are howling on Rocky Top, and a loss would drop the Vols to 0-3 in SEC games this season with Alabama on deck. An 0-4 start in the league would be the Vols’ first such record since Jones’ second season, which ended at 7-6 with the first of three straight bowl wins.

Pat Forde ranks SEC’s 6 hottest seats, presumes another coach to be gone soon


Quote
(For what it’s worth, he already considers Ole Miss interim coach Matt Luke to be on his way out.)

1. Tennessee’s Butch Jones
2. Arkansas’ Bret Bielema
3. Texas A&M’s Kevin Sumlin
4. Missouri’s Barry Odom
5. LSU’s Ed Orgeron
6. Florida’s Jim McElwain

Hottest seat: Butch Jones (14), Tennessee. The Volunteers had a bye week after their worst home loss in a century, and while there was no in-season firing forthcoming, the downtime only allowed the toxicity to fester. Predictably, a bogus rumor was started late in the week about Jones being on the verge of a dismissal. That didn’t happen, but it’s clear that there are plenty of fans who would like it to be so. Jones is 14-20 in SEC games, and in Year 5, that’s not getting it done. Tennessee is 3-2 and, aside from a trip to Alabama on Oct. 21, the rest of the schedule is not daunting. But only a very strong finish would seem likely to save Jones at this point.

Tennessee coach Butch Jones on ‘gut-wrenching’ reality of South Carolina loss


Quote
KNOXVILLE, Tenn. — Butch Jones lives in a different reality than many of the Tennessee football fans today.

Some are speculating on Jones’ future with the Vols, noting what would be an $8,423,610 buyout paid through 2020 if Jones were fired today.

Vols (3-3, 0-3 SEC) play the No. 1-ranked Crimson Tide (7-0, 4-0) at 3:30 next Saturday at Bryant-Denny Stadium in Tuscaloosa (TV: CBS).

Jones put the wrap on Saturday’s 15-9 loss to South Carolina by crediting his players for their efforts against the Gamecocks and assessing QB Jarrett Guarantano.

Guarantano, a redshirt freshman from New Jersey, was 11-of-18 passing for 133 yards in his first career start. Guarantano drove the Vols to the South Carolina 2-yard line in the final minute but was unable to get Tennessee into the end zone for a  game-winning touchdown.

“I thought he was very poised, very calm,” Jones said. “He made some plays with his legs.

“But in terms of showing poise and making your first start, I think there are a lot of things positively to build upon.”

Guarantano was sacked seven times...

Associated Press: Butch Jones, four other SEC coaches on hot seat


Quote
Along with Jones, Arkansas’ Bret Bielema, Missouri’s Barry Odom, Florida’s Jim McElwain and Texas A&M’s Kevin Sumlin also got a mention.

Bielema’s reported buyout of $12 million might be too high for Arkansas to pull the trigger on forcing him out. Odom is only in year two of his deal with Missouri, but the Tigers have appeared to give up on their head coach. McElwain still has a chance to save his job for another year, but games against Georgia and Florida State will be critical.

Sumlin is in another boat entirely.
