This is how false rumors and fake news gets started!

I'd rather have Fulmer spending the holidays out getting commitments from the Jimmies and Joes rather than kissing up to the Jimmy and Charlies.

There's a reason for that scene in The Blindside when all the other coaches got upset when Fulmer showed up.

While we can all acknowledge Phil has a history that is divisive for some, we should also be able to recognize that he has unquestionably given his all for UT. At this point in the recruiting cycle and with a developing coaching staff, I can't see how his involvement can be considered anything other than a positive

I canít believe anyone would criticize Fulmer going on the recruiting trail to help land prospects right now. We donít have a full staff and thereís limited time to land recruits. He loves UT, led us to a National Championship, and is in the HOF.

We should be very grateful he is willing to take on a bigger job to help our program since we are very limited on time and staff right now.

Anyone that thinks this is meddling is showing ignorant bias.

As long as itís recruits Pruitt is targeting why would this be anything less than helping? Seriously?

And Iím going to assume the OP is referring to Fulmer visiting with Cade Mays. If Iím not mistaken Fulmer was the OL coach for Cadeís dad back in the 80ís. Pruitt would be a damn fool NOT to use Fulmer to help recruit him.

Yeah because there's no way that Fulmer's experience playing OL at UT, coaching offense, and being HC could possibly help Pruitt in recruiting or trying to get Cade Mays back....


I see people are still not thinking before they press the "Submit" button on here.....

We, as fans, want the program to return to the success of the 90s. Yet complain when the architect of those teams is involved with helping the program return to those days?

Do you remember in the movie "The Blindside" when all the other coaches who were there to watch Michael Oher play pretty much threw in the towel when Fulmer showed up? There's a reason for that. He's a top notch recruiter! I'm glad he's back in the game in any position for the Vols.

Tennessee is way, WAY behind on our recruiting with this new early signing period right on top of us.

Many top recruits have seemed to make up their minds on where they plan to play and after they're signed it's over for us.

If we can add some doubts in the kids minds and give them some options to think about then if we get them to delay signing until the regular National Signing Day that will give us much more time to try to flip them to Tennessee and that delay in signing will be a Win for our recruiting.

Once upon a time Fulmer was a excellent recruiter, he wears a National Championship ring and he's in the Hall of Fame and he bleeds Tennessee Orange and still totally loves football so all of that will get some kids and their parents attention.

Not many people in a AD position could, or would, be able to step in and help with recruiting at all so Fulmer offering to work his butt off and help Coach Pruitt attempt to get some good players on our roster is a very positive thing at this point.

Fulmer has his plate very full as a new AD with lots to learn and all Tennessee sports to oversee so him being willing to add all of this to his plate is proof that he still really cares about our footVol Team.

After CJP has all his coaches hired and on the hill working then AD Fulmer will go back to his AD position.

I appreciate AD Fulmer being willing to do extra work and help CJP by making lots of extra phone calls and by packing his bags to hit the road to do whatever he can to try to make Tennessee footVol great again.

VFL...GBO!!!
Great observations... Thanks for posting!
