Arrow The media praises new and improved Butch Jones

As we all know, the media often bashes Butch for his cliches and coachspeak (not saying it's undeserved at times). I think it's worth pointing out the overwhelmingly positive reviews he received from his appearances at SEC Media Day this afternoon.



YouTube Link


Dari Nowkhah: "I thought what we just saw from him was the best media moments we've seen in five years from Butch Jones. I thought he was fantastic."

Booger
: "I thought he was outstanding."

Greg McElroy: "I think he handled everything today beautifully. He showed humanity, he showed humility, and he also showed a great understanding of the progress that needed to be made."

Booger:
"What's the biggest criticism of Butch Jones? Always got slogans. You didn't hear that. All you heard was a coach who talked about the process, talked about what he needed to get done and how he was going to do it. That's the Butch Jones we've been dying to hear for the last two or three years. Today we finally heard it."

Dari: "And he was personable! That's the other thing we needed to see." (Booger in the background: "YES! YES!")

Jordan Rodgers: "The thing I love is that I think you're starting to see a transition in him realizing you can't continue to do the same things over and over again and expect a different result and that's obvious in his coaching hires: bringing Brady Hoke on, talking about Fulmer. He's looking for people to invest in this program and teach him how to do it a different way, or see it just slightly different than he does and that's going to create progress and I think they are moving in the right direction, at least within that locker room."

Hope they're right. Jones needs it. UT probably needs it worse.

And I was ready to flick that booger. Maybe I'll let him stick around.

CBJ embraced all things Tennessee the day he was named HC. His willingness to listen to input from our former players and coaches affirms a desire to return Tennessee to it's traditional place in CFB. Well that sounds good but it's all about wining and the teams you lose to in the end.

I'd have to give Butch an A+ performance at the podium. Maybe they're right, he's taking the next step. That's a very good thing.

Hopefully Butch just lets his new assistants do their job instead of trying to take control of everything. I think his main problem last season was overthinking everything and trying to coach not to lose.

Hopefully he's changed for the good.
