you ever brag about UT's facilities to fans of other schools? Now think about how those get done

The athletic department need stability more than anything right now.
Conzo and Derek need the man who hired them to have their back not a new AD.
Hamiltion is evidently the best at raising money- the numbers dont lie!

Most dont care about baseball.

Actually no! I don't brag, nor do I really care. And neyland stadium speaks for it's self. Thanks to Hamilton, it's slowly but surely shrinking... Don't get me wrong I'm glad we got top notch facilities, but if you were to ask me, what do I want, championships or a nice arena? I'd take the championships. Facilities are nice when you can bring top notch talent in with it, but facilities don't matter when your programs lose, because no one wants to play for a no name or a bad coach..

you don't care what UT's facilities look like? That would make sense if you were bragging on how Neyland looked just a few years ago. Yes it was still Neyland but had gotten rough

no one is claiming there must be a choice between facilities and winning but to say someone is a total failure while they obviously have some wins under their belt is ridiculous

It would be moronic to think the changes to Neyland dont benifit the fans, the university, the football program, and recruiting.

the changes on the field have been equally amazing.

there is more to being athletic director than getting boosters to cough up some cash.

darn near every major university in the country has upgraded their facilities in the last 15 years. mike hamilton isn't a genius in this regard.

his hiring and firing decisions, especially in regard to major programs, have been god awful.

no they really haven't. The circumstances he was put in were crazy and much of it came from men who claimed to bleed orange

I have been going to Neyland for 25 years- when it held 110,000 fans it nothing more that a big metal dump that held alot of people.

Neyland is beautiful, that's why I said it speaks for it's self. And why you give credit to Hamilton for it, how have our teams been and keeping the NCAA off our back under the man you give so much credit to? we are not in sports to say hey look at our facilities, we might suck, but boy do we have nice facilities.. We are in them to win championships!

We are 3 years removed from a SECE title- and could possibly win this year. The football program is far from in the dumps!

Rod Delmonico and APR

I am friends with several former baseball players. Some hated and some loved him.

Rod Delmonico made the mistake of treating his players like adults and told them he expected them to do the right thing and go to class.

With so few scholarships and players it only took a handful of guys to screw it up for everyone else. Additionally, under Rod we had guys who were talented enough to actually get drafted after they turned 21 or were juniors and did not help either.

Every year, we seemingly hand one bonehead who failed to qualify to play. Sometimes they would come back to team after Spring semester was over (last week of season or so) You had idiots like pitcher Jeffery Terrell who simply never went to class at all. He had to go pro after being drafted relatively low as a result.

So Rod did not closely monitor his guys like the NCAA expect/demand now. To many immature jerks made the guys who took care of business look bad.

No, we've just recently had some of the worse seasons in school history!

i doubt lane kiffin claimed to bleed orange seeing as how he never embraced anything at tennessee. the man never even got a tennessee state driver's license. the fact that hamilton was conned by kiffin leads me to believe he should never hire anyone at ut.

words can't describe how bad todd raleigh is.

and the best hire (bruce pearl) is responsible for putting the men's basketball program on probation.
