I’m a lot like @Bassmaster_Vol in that I always seem to talk myself into people (new coaches, new draft picks, crazy girls). I don’t know if Heupel is going to be a star here, but I feel extremely confident in saying that I know we will be fun to watch again, and I think that’s all a lot of us want to start. A lot of games in the Pruitt era made my eyes bleed. Excited to see how this staff fills out. Go Vols.

One thing that tends to get buried in all the discussion of the coach hire, and is worth occasionally repeating, is the extreme bignitude of finally having a REAL AD after all these years (hopefully). Think of all the stuff we’ve been griping about ever since this board started that all comes down to lack of AD competence and leadership.

Hamilton was the Original Sin, Hart and Currie could not disentangle themselves from the puppet strings, and Fulmer thought AD really meant Head Head Coach. Sure, DW’s performance is mostly yet to be seen, but his rep and demeanor give me a lot of confidence.

I think he was brought here at great expense to finally make the Athletic Dept a more operationally competent organization and establish more decision-making independence from outside interference. If he can perform as advertised, we should be able to finally emerge from the dark days and stay out of them for a long time.

God, I hope he can do it.

Someone help me understand. EG and BM were escorted out of the locker room before the A&M game. JP is an idiot..... So he is the one that had them escorted out? Why?
No he was going to play them against the request from UTs compliance office that said it was not a good idea because of the Investigation.

Also:

-Nobody gains more yards than UCF (619.1 per game).
- Nobody throws for more yards than the Knights (396.9 per game).
-Nobody runs more plays than UCF (86.5 per game).
- Nobody produces more first downs than the Knights (29.1 per game).

-UCF's offensive production the last three football seasons (2017-18-19) has been off the charts.

They rank as the only three years in history in which the Knights have averaged more than 500 yards of total offense per game (530.5 in 2017, 522.7 in 2018 and a school-record 540.5 in 2019)

Now comes 2020.

In addition to a pandemic, the football season has brought about a UCF offensive explosion that has dwarfed those figures from recent seasons:

In addition to ranking No. 1 in both total offense and passing offense, the Knights currently stand No. 11 in scoring (44.0 points) and 20th in rushing (222.3 yards per

If it holds up, the current UCF total-offense average of 619.1 yards per game would rank as the second-highest in NCAA Football Bowl Subdivision history--behind only the record 624.9 figure by Houston in 1989.

The current UCF passing yards per-game average of 396.9 would have led the nation in five of the last eight seasons.

**Heupel has averaged over 42 points per game for 3 seasons**

....Read that again
I’ll never understand why people are upset with this hire

Haynesworth said it should have been the black man but instead we hired batman.
BTW Tee isn't qualified for the job.... look at our list of coaches that turned us down! Nothing had to do with race.
He once again embarrasses himself. My goodness.... Tony Elliot and James Franklin said no....
Tennessee is SYSTEMATICALLY RASICIST because a person of color didn't accept the job when offered.

🤬 that racist scumbag...he has always been a dirty, lazy, cheap shot embarrassment. Doing this to Tennessee is absolute betrayal...

I was thinking about some of the front runners that VolNation vetted and it is funny how they are thought of. Campbell is waiting for the NFL, he can win 8-9 games a year, go to a bowl and be a Legend ISU until he thinks the time is right. He is waiting on the NFL . Elliot, Chadwell and possibly Healy and Fickle all will get a chance at the NFL sooner than later in some capacity. Kiffin and Freeze will not get a shot too big of a risk for the NFL. Kiffin is to immature and Freeze has his schtick that I think would rub people raw pretty quick in the NFL. Fleck, Dykes are college guys and Franklin is the wild card, I think if he wants to he will get a chance because he is a good coach and a salesman as well.

Yes I might actually buy tix again. We went to quite a few under Butch (Dobbs sure was fun to see). Never even attempted during the Pruitt era. No excitement.

I saw someone mention Heupal being a scapegoat at OU. Then I read a lazy Mike Farrell article about the hire as he said OU fans say he’s a poor offensive mind.

In the first 3 years at OU, they won 10+ games. In his 4th year, they went 8-5, but in three of those losses, they scored 30+ points with Trevor Knight. Bob Stoops wasn’t going to fire his brother as DC.
They were 20th on offense that year..

I just hope he doesn't pull a Butch and just transfer his "best staff in America " from one school to another. That would be an upgrade in itself from what we have had....the buddy system of coaching staffs......... and you get a check and you get a check. UT the "Oprah of College Football".
