I cant remember a game during the Botch era when one of his teams was as flat and disinterested as today. If I was a future Vol foe, I would run the slant 55 times in a row. We have not stopped it all year. Either double the guy or have the linebackers drop back into the passing lanes. I havent played since middle school , but I solved the slant problem-( you're welcome JP.) Also, since Ky picked off a Mike Leach team 6 times, what made us think that we could run the same plays we"ve used since 2017 and they (ky) would be fooled? Hubris is PAINFUL !( LAST sec east title 2007? I think ? ) next sec title 2055?
Even though Butch was the worst game manager in recent memory, I believe that he worked very hard and put his heart into improving Vol Football. I am surprised that he hasn"t taken another job in a power 5 conference. The man could recruit - look at all the NFL guys he hooked. Thoughts ? Why is he radioactive?
He was great at making PR videos like the one when he arrived in Knoxville stepping off the Aircraft, with the fake smoke like he was coming in to kick some ass. Guy was a total joke and belonged in front of the Big Tent as a carnival barker.
At this point, qualitatively, is there really any evident difference between Jones and Pruitt?
Still can’t compete at the top level. Still losing to bad teams. Still seemingly not effectively developing a QB (Dobbs was good because of his talent - He was never developed to his full potential under Jones). Still getting a little bit of hype to start a year only to conduct an epic collapse when the pressure is on.
