"Ex-Vols Relish Jones Call"....Volquest

If there any doubters out there as to CBJ character and passion then I suggest you read this article from the night over 60 former players met with CBJ....

VolQuest.com - Ex-Vols relish Jones' call


Former Vol placekicker and National Champion Jeff Hall said the first thing he told his wife after getting home from meeting head coach Butch Jones and his staff Tuesday night was that he was finally excited about Tennessee football again.

Nice insight. Glad Jones is reaching out to the old guard.

Can the ex-vols be involved during recruits official visits? Seeing them and talking to them might be a big selling point unless its a violation.

I'll say this for CBJ - totally different off-season from "pick-up the phone and call me; don't just show up" and "Showergate" to this. That was a classy and much needed move by CBJ. Winning the offseason doesn't mean much (except in recruiting), but I know I will remember this, and I think many other Vol fans will as well.

Again, to borrow a Vietnam War-era metaphor, this is a classic grassroots "win the hearts and minds of the people" strategy. Coach Jones knows that he will never have a more receptive audience, as ambassadors of the program, than former players. I think Coach Jones is "crazy as a fox," i.e. always working in a calculated, strategic manner in everything that he does. Right now, we are in a dead period, in terms of recruiting, so he works on another front, one that he knows will generate not only good will but buzz and excitement as we move forward.

He's making $3 million per year with a so-so record in crappy conferences, so he better be doing everything right and working about 18 hours a day. I don't care about his family. I care about 4 and 5* recruits and wins.

Dynamite drop in. From your amount of posts and the content I can tell you're neither a quality nor quantity guy. Pound sand, ye that say nay.

Excuse me sir but it seems you are missing out on one of the programs biggest selling points; family atmosphere. It is exactly what signs us these 4 and 5 star recruits. And the more "family" it feels, the better our success.

But carry on, sir. Grumble grumble!
