I think Mandel rated the hiring of OBrien at PSU has a "C" while rating the Chryst hiring at Pitt as and "A" so that pretty much tells you what he knows about football and how we should not get so worked up over this guys rankings.

Yes, as should the judgments of knee-jerk reaction fans, of which UT has far too many.

A "B" is above average. Seeing how he hasn't even coached a game in Neyland yet I'll give him the benefit of the doubt.

That would make a lot of sense.

So, no.

It's great that SI.com took the time to rate these coaches. It's also great to see Tennessee fans post their own rating. Myself, I guess I'm just not smart enough to figure out how you do it. It just amazes me that you can do that long before these coaches have coached their first game at said universities. Does anybody here know when the world is going to end? Seems like "they" keep missing that one. I was sure Dec. 21 was going to be the day but not so. If SI.com can rate these hires Im sure they know when the world will end.

I can see it. UK made a good hire for them, and Auburn got someone respected within the program with a solid SEC background. Arky got a flashy name that may or may not work out for them, but has some street cred. UT hired beneath expectations, given our tradition, facilities, fan/donor support and the undercoached talent to build on. Paying all that buyout money to fire Dooley set up expectations that UT would bring in a top hire who could kill it in recruiting and be competitive quickly. Then our Ego Munster of an AD bungles the coaching search in very public fashion and resorts to making a questionable hire to avert full panic mode. Jones may rise to the occasion, but he's a very average hire.

If I had any respect for SI left it is now gone. RIP Sports Illustrated.
PS those swimsuit issues were one of the best parts of my early adolescence.

Done. Thank you for the reminder of these type ratings whether + or -.

Who cares about winning football games? Its all about winning SI articles and recruiting polls!!!!!!! They were also convinced Lane Kiffin was a better hire than Gene Chizik based on recruiting. Who wouldnt take one 9th ranked recruiting class over a NC trophy? I dont care if we ever win another game, ever!!!! As long as we win in recruiting, that way I can brag all summer without having to back it up on the field. REAL MEN WATCH RECRUITING!!!!!!!!!!!

There aren't many hires on that list that should be ahead of Butch to UT, IMO.

Kingsbury has proven nothing as a HC and Malzahn with only one year under his belt was handed a previously well stocked ASU team (for ASU anyways) and got raped by Oregon. Neither has 4 conference championships as a CFB HC....total B frigging S!

The grade must be on a curve.
No AD would have taken Mark Stoops over Butch Jones, but on a curve, I don't have a problem with someone saying KY did better at this point.

This was by no means a strike out, but it also isn't the type of hire that will inspire instant optimism for anyone, except for those who must always be optimistic about our football program and thus will find it in any hire (not that there's anything wrong with that).

So tell us how Butch with 4 conference titles should be ranked below a first time HC in Kingsbury that hasn't proven anything besides being a decent OC. Charlie Weiss is a hell of an OC but sucks as an HC.
