I'd say Tennessee will have a HC opening at seasons end as well.

Phil Fulmer on Tennessee's Butch Jones: 'I understand exactly where he is'


Quote
If anyone knows the highs and lows of Tennessee football, it's Phil Fulmer.

Fulmer - who coached the Vols from 1992 to 2008, including the 1999 BCS title - gave his take on this year's Tennessee under coach Butch Jones.

"I understand exactly where he is," Fulmer told The Citizen Tribune Tuesday of Jones. "It's a tough time for him."

Fulmer should know. He coached the Vols to a 152-52 record and two SEC Championships, but quickly fell out of favor with the fanbase at the end of his tenure.

"Nobody ever promised anybody that every day is going to be good. Everybody has difficulties, it's just that in athletics, and particularly at a place like Tennessee, it is so exposed," he said.

"My hope is that the players will run out, and make a good year out of it," he said.

Fulmer was asked who would be a viable candidate to replace Jones.

"I wouldn't begin to go there," Fulmer said...

Vols (3-3, 0-3 SEC) haven't scored a touchdown in their past 10 quarters and have dropped three of their last four games. Now, they are preparing for Saturday's game at No. 1 Alabama (7-0, 4-0).

WATCH: Wedding goers receive ‘Fire Butch’ message from wedding party http://sec.news/2l6M239   #VFL


Quote
Rule No. 1 for getting married in the South: Don’t do it on a Saturday in the fall.

But if you are going to do it on a Saturday in the fall, bringing a bunch of Tennessee fans to church rather as an alternative to watching the Vols against Alabama was probably a smart move.

While we cannot verify what role this gentleman plays in the wedding party (the tweet identifies him as a minister), he certainly connects with his audience by delivering a “Fire Butch” message to those gathered to witness the nuptials in the midst of a 45-7 Alabama win on Saturday.

“Thank you, everyone, for coming here on the third Saturday in October when Tennessee plays Alabama,” the wedding party member can be heard saying into the microphone. “If you’re here, ‘Fire Butch.'”

He then mic drops

Tennessee RB John Kelly apologizes, calls actions ‘immature and selfish’


Quote
Embattled Tennessee coach Butch Jones announced Wednesday he has suspended Kelly and freshman linebacker Will Ignont. Ignont was in a car with Kelly when the pair were pulled over with marijuana and a glass pipe stashed in the console.

Kelly, a junior from Detroit who leads the Vols in rushing yardage and pass receptions, was cited for misdemeanor drug possession and not having proof of insurance.

When you make millions can you afford a grad assistant who can check insurance, tail light/head light function, blacked out windows, etc.?

Tennessee seniors address #EmptyNeyland campaign by fans


Quote
KNOXVILLE, Tenn. — The animosity surrounding the Tennessee fan base has been building all season.

Some fans seem to have hit a breaking point and have begun a push on social media with the hashtag “EmptyNeyland.” The fans want to express their displeasure with coach Butch Jones by skipping the Southern Miss game Saturday.

Senior offensive lineman Jashon Robertson received a question at a media availability Tuesday about the fan movement.

“I understand their frustration to a certain extent, we’re the ones playing the games,” Robertson said. “At the same time, I’m a senior from the state of Tennessee. I love this place. When I came here, it was to play in front of a great fan base like we have. So, only thing I’d say to them is, ‘We appreciate the support they’ve given us this year. We look forward to them giving us the same type of support.’”

Senior defensive lineman Kendal Vickers said fans can do what they want to do. It won’t change the players’ jobs no matter how many people show up.

“I don’t have a message for them,” Vickers said. “They can do what they want to do, that’s their right. They cannot show up if they want to, or they can if they want to. We got to go out there and play Southern Miss.”

Tennessee will enter the game on a four-game losing streak...

Tennessee needs win against LSU or Vandy to avoid breaking impressive streak shared only by Ohio State


Quote
Volunteers must win against either LSU or Vanderbilt to stay away from eight losses in a season, which the Tennessee program has never seen before.

Only Vols and The Ohio State have never lost eight.

Tennessee fires Butch Jones. Brady Hoke named interim. Team meeting with players was at 1 pm. Press conference at 5 pm. Read my blog:

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. – Butch Jones has laid his last brick at Tennessee.

UT athletic director John Currie fired Jones on Sunday morning, hours after the Vols were routed 50-17 at Missouri.

The loss dropped UT’s record to 4-6 overall and 0-6 in the SEC. The Vols never have gone winless in SEC play. League games remain against LSU and Vanderbilt. The Vols also never have lost eight games in a season, a possibility this year.

Jones informed his coaches Sunday morning. Jones was offered a chance to coach the last two games but declined, a source said.

Currie named Brady Hoke as interim coach. Hoke is in his first season as the Vols’ defensive line coach, and formerly was coach at Michigan, San Diego State and Ball State.

“Unfortunately, we are not where we need to be competitively,” Currie said in a statement officially announcing the decision. “For that reason, I have asked Coach Jones to step down as head football coach.”

Currie also said that under Jones, “the program has improved tremendously in the areas of academics, discipline and community involvement.”
