    Much more likely Kelly than McVay. The probability of the later close to zero IMO.

    Chris Peterson?!

    Great record as a head coach but this is a Gruden II scenario.

    Time to change the name of one of Knoxville's streets.

    No explanation necessary.

    So Fulmer will be paid through 2023

    Some of us had figured him out when he became head coach.

    Here comes the exodus...

    Maybe we can get some third string players from Bama , UGA and Florida

    I don't know anything about it but seriously doubt Bama had anything to do with it.

    My Broken Record: If Your QB Can't Run, You Can't Compete Now

    Agree. However, a little history. Bear Bryant once said: "I'll never have another QB that can't run." ( I can't remember who he was referring to)

    Has The Game Really Changed THAT Much? (For Statistic Lovers)

    From an old guy.....JMO.....changing the rules to allow offensive linemen to extend their arms (what amounts to legal holding) changed the game for the worse in my opinion. And the newer rules about QB protection etc. have tilted the game even more in favor of the offense.

    OSU throws to the tight ends? Why is this not even in UTs playbook?

    And we didn't use Witten nearly as much as we should have.

    Well I'm 79 and except for Oct 67-Oct 68 (Viet Nam) this has been the worst year of my life too. I was too young to know what WWII was about but do remember seeing a couple of troop trains in 1945. Soldiers were waving to the hometown crowd as they passed through. Don't know for sure but I think...

    To me the true measure of a good coach is getting the most from the player talent with which he/she has to work.

    So...... on Bailey

    Don't know one but there are some that produced good teams with average to below average player talent. And that's what I consider good coaching. Examples: Bill Snyder at KSU, Patterson at TCU, Petersen at Boise State.

    So...... on Bailey

    Everything he/she said may be coaching but Saban's record at LSU and Bama is every bit as much related to a roster of 5 star players as it is coaching. Ever check his record when he was coaching a team without a player talent advantage? And for that matter Fulmer's record was also.

    Fulmer with the dagger

    Disagree with the opening statement. Fulmer was a good recruiter.

    And the end of college football begins..

    A bigger question, tangentially related..... Will colleges and universities continue as we've known them? The writer of a recent Wall Street Journal article thinks not. Is This the End of College as We Know It?

    This article explains why UT football has been in decline...and it's not due to coaching

    Spot on. Our great record late last century was because many other regional programs (both SEC and otherwise) were in the doldrums relative to where they are now. It was much easier to recruit.
