Did you see my post about it being graded on a curve?
Basically, Tennessee is expected to do much better than Texas Tech. Straight up, Butch Jones is a better hire. But, the writer is saying that Texas Tech's hire was more impressive than our hire. If, say, USC would have hired Butch Jones this offseason, it probably would have been graded a C.

Agreed. Wisconsin hired him, because he was literally the only mid-major coach left who had a breakout season and hadn't already been hired by a bigger program.

You have to go back to the Bear Bryant era to find a KY team that finished on top of the SEC while not on probation. To them, Mark Stoops is a big hire who will get everyone excited.

I still say you guys made the absolute best hire in the SEC. As a Bama fan, I must say that I love the Malzahn hire. I didn't think their level of suck could go down, but it will. Take the guy that recruited the mess that Auburn just put on the field and put him in charge? Oh yeah, thanks for that. Butch Jones causes some concern for me and that is good for ya'll.

People forget that every article or news spot is ONLY 1 persons opinion.

Many times that 1 persons opinion really doesn't mean much at all in the long term.

After bUTch has 4 classes of his recruits on the field is when we'll really know what he can do in the SEC and not before then.

People always want to judge and form opinions far too soon in college football unfortunately and most people really don't know jack squat anyway.

VFL...GBO!!!

It would be awesome to line up these reporters and note their past "grades" and then lay out actual records from teams and coaches to see how wrong they are.

Agree, Malzahn was a crapy hire and they dont have a scam newton on the roster to make them look good. Jones has been a winner as a hc before and is not as gimmicky as Gus. These bozos are just trying to get more people to read/talk about the magazine so they can sell more adds...they know nothing and soon, no one will even remember this article...cept VFLs!

That article is a load of crap! Malzahn and Kingsbury over Jones? Gimme a break. Doesn't take much to write sports articles these days does it?

Jones is one of the more successful and proven HCs that were hired this year, only Tubs and Bielema have had more on the big stage.
