I did the math too. Considering any loss equals an "L", they all have the same value. Pruitt has the least number of losses to Florida of the coaches you compared. :p

Well I don't think some folks would consider all those losses to have the same value. Playing a team close and getting the doors blown off might both result in an "L" but they don't mean the same thing. How many people would have been excited if UT had lost to Georgia by 1 point Saturday?

All Vol fans know we usually don't beat Florida, but I think a lot of fans don't quite know the degree to which they've owned us.

Since we started playing them every year (1990), we've beaten them 23% of the time (7-23). That's not even once every four years, on average. We've only beaten them in back-to-back years once (2003-04). We've only beaten them twice in Gainesville in 15 tries.

Since the 90s, they freaking own us to an extent way beyond Alabama and especially Georgia do. Florida owned us even when we were good - Alabama and Georgia did not.

Who cares. How bad are they beating us in Year 4 and 5?

But congrats on finding a new way to show what we already know.

“When we start minding a loss only then the mind truly opens-up to winning. It’s easy to lose from any situation, but to win from any situation takes a strong mind-set. The loser isn't a person it’s a mind-set. Be a winner.”

No it doesn’t

2 “L”s in 2 try’s

Does not help your argument.
I wasn't making an argument. I was actually pointing out a flaw in the OP's post and making light of it. But since you seem to think I have an argument, I will make one using statistics and facts.

Dooley was 0-3. That's 3 losses in 3 tries.
Jones was 1-4. That's 4 losses in 5 tries. Jones didn't win until his 4th attempt.

Pruitt is 0-2 at this point. That's 2 losses in 2 tries.

He still has another year before your can compare his record of performance against either coach when considering the record against Florida. At this time and through next year, Pruitt can only be AS bad as the other two

Here's an example of statistics: In the years of Fulmer, he went 4-12 and didn't win his first game against Florida until his 6th game.
Based on your logic... Looking at the teams records, Fulmer is worse than Pruitt, Jones and Dooley. Ponder that for a moment.

Given your example are we allowed to compare jp first 2 years with butch and dooley first 2 years, or first 17 games etc? Or do we just blame all their first two years on the players the inherited?

Not that it matters, but he actually won his first game against Florida. In 1992, we beat them in a upset when they were highly ranked, of course he was interim, but those games are in his overall record I believe.

If those numbers are right, the lower total should be -63.

Might double check your work next time.
