Not a fan of this meaningless inning for Sims. If he's close enough to out of innings to move him from the rotation just shut him down

Again, I'd rather just hear him be accountable and confident. Not referencing stats that can easily be misconstrued as excuses.
Itís a talking point. Thatís all. Itís only an excuse if we lose. And if we lose I donít care about excuses from him.

I get it. Just not to the point that someone rushes to start a thread every time Butch speaks.

Hell, Butch knows the reactions he gets for this crap. Iíve just about convinced myself heís trolling everybody at this point. Lol.

I understand. It gets a little overboard. This one just struck a nerve with me.

Ultimately it's going to be about wins and losses this year. We should not lose this weekend, and yet I have no confidence we will win. And that's probably why I keyed in on the comment.

We should win, but Iím not confident either. And that probably has more to do with the history of this series than anything about these two teams specifically.

At the end of the day it's a bunch of emotional 18-22 year olds playing 60 minutes. Anything could be weighing on any player and anything can happen. If you hate butch you hate him. Winning by 50 Saturday won't change it.

I use to believe this line of thinking was silly. That people only have that opinion because this is the fan base we are most exposed to. They're all bad, we just hear the most from this one.

But now I'm with you. The number of "Tennessee fans" that would prefer us to lose is insane. Like losing is gonna get butch fired and automatically restore the glory of a half decade run like it's our birthright when in actuality WE WILL GET WORSE.

I never want us to lose under any circumstance. Georgia offed Richt after winning double digit games almost or near the majority of his tenure. All because he couldn't win the SEC. Nothing at all wrong to strive for better. The goal is and should always be to win the East (despite Butch saying it wasn't last year) and compete for the SEC championship. To me, 9 wins, 6 wins, or 4 wins is MOOT without at least a division title. Butch will never be that guy, it's like trying to find a QB in the NFL, if your incumbent can't win the big games, you're constantly searching for who can win those big games. Ill never understand being content with a booger because your last coach was a turd mind set. It's defeatist.

I hope no one here thinks I am cheering for us to lose. I don't care for Jones and I don't think he's the guy, but I'd be happy for him to make a believer out of me. I want to win. I just don't think we should be happy with 8 wins a season and act like it's ok.

I want to remind you that we are more than a team that did exceptionally well for a "half decade run". Only one team has more SEC Championships. And 12th to 13th in all time wins and wins %.

I understand things change, but college football is also cyclical.

Great reminder. I had no idea.


I'm 29 and barely care about the 90s. I can assure no one 14-18 cares about anything that happened before then.

We will never be good simply because we use to be good. It's a fallacy.

Wow you really love your outback and belk bowls.


Missing the point. If you don't win the East it doesn't matter how many games you win. Winning battles, but losing the War, tallest midget et al.

If winning 9 games makes you feel justifiable, when 33% of those wins are against Indiana State, UMass, and Southern Miss, you may want to find another hobby.

This isn't mid 90's anymore bro, back when 9 wins carried water because it was all Power 5 games. There is a reason why the non-arbitrary number of 6 got you in bowl game in those days.

The last time Tennessee fell ass backwards into in the SEC title game Erik Ainge was throwing TD passes directly to Jonathan Xenon (who played for LSU).

It's 2017
