Dude's spot on.
Saturday nite will mark the beginning of the reemergence of what TN used to be.
I'd love that but we must face reality. It won't be a reemergence, rather a prelude of what's to come. Not until our recruiting is back on par with what it once was will we be back to terrorizing the SEC and power 5 OOC opponents. I share your sentiments, but we still have to plow the field, plant the seedlings, and finally harvest the crop. All in good time, grasshopper, all in good time.

Fulmer was not crap, he hired good coordinators and they coached the team. Fulmer was the CEO just like a head coach should be. Once the good coordinators left Fulmer failed to hired reasonable replacements and it cost him his job. He got revenge by hiring cornbread and sucking millions of dollars out of the university.

Fulmer won because he had the best players in the country at the time. Had nothing to do with coaching

Fulmer screwed Fulmer.

If he wasn’t lazy and too stubborn to change his philosophy, things might have been turned out differently for him. Hell, he may still be coaching here.

However, his way of playing football is out dated and wouldn’t work in the SEC now.

This is a bell weather game for us. We win and people will see that Tennessee is back and we have the best coach we have had since Fulmer was fired. Huge game Saturday night
Agreed. I’d even go as far to say if we lose a CLOSE one…you start that conversation. If people truly understood what Heupel inherited they’d think that no doubt.
