Go look at some old videos of us from the 98 season. There is absolutely no comparison to how much faster the plays developed back then. Our offensive line was faster then than some of our running backs over the past few years. I know it was a different style offense from then to now but we were big and fast?
To say the least Im no computer guru but theres much to be said for the act of returning to protected files. Going back to when orange Volunteer football was clean and strong by coach Fulmer returning to help guide the program feels like the right move, Im at peace with it. That said I support CJP in that he is the coach, its his show now. Go Vols!
I would take CJP and this staff and the '98 team in a heartbeat.
I have nothing against Fulmer, and there may be something to this VFL thing (though I am not totally convinced), but Fulmer with this year's team and not knowing who the staff is - It's a no for me.
After the debacle of the last decade, I can certainly see the AD being a VFL (as a good thing). I think this definitely helps the situation, but it may be more important that he is an ex-coach, and not just a pencil pusher - but I guess that's a subject for another thread.
