We will land a top 15 class..good bet or bad bet?

One of my many friends who loves to hate UT (got lots of them here in Detroit bc Im obnoxious fan) was talking ch it last night saying Butch Jones cant recruit for crap and that recruits dont even know his name and that TN stinks and is irrelevant, blah blah, etc...

I told him we were ranked in mid 40's a few weeks ago and now sit around #27-28 on Rivals. I told him I believe Jones will pull in a top 15 class when its all said and done on NSD. He says no way lol I tried to warn him of the high-caliber recruits looking at us.

He said lets go..$100 right now UT wont land in top 15. I said you're on punk. I truly believe we will do it! Do you guys think I made a good bet? Stupid bet?

It could happen. Never bet more than you can afford to lose. Good luck!

I hope you win your bet, but my guess is you donated $100. In future years, our coaches will recruit very well, but I really think the last regime left CBJ and the guys in a huge recruiting hole.

Gotta get positive players with talent and then u Gotta coach em up. We have been loose on both the last 4 years. We don't have a Saban like coach but we do have facilities and we do have some heritage and fan base to build with. We need to stop the bleeding so we can heal. Then build

To be fair...we were at 25 when Dools got shot out of the cannon...we dropped to 45...and then bUTch has us inching up....if this past weekend and the next big one gets some quality...who knows but I'm fine with whatever ranking....I'm just tired of being out coached every year...take care if that Coach Jones!

How late can you make that bet? I'd wait on rb D. Green and wr M. North commits first.
