if you think kids were tuned out versus Carolina, fire their coaches and you will see a massive tune out against Vandy. Makes no sense to fire assistants before the last game and signing day. Possible loss to Vandy and possibly losing several recruits. It can wait another month or so..
Every HS defensive recruit has to know what’s coming though. Why prolong the suspense?

Calm down sparky let’s let the coaches coach and let us be fans.. I’m sure your input on the coaches matter
Was getting ready to start a post with exact same first three words. Geez…we will likely finish 10-2 AFTER going 7-6 from a 3 win season prior…and now we’re wanting people fired. News flash…we aren’t “back” yet. I trust JH to do what he thinks is right.

The whole defensive staff. Maybe keep Garner.
Teams are catching onto to how they can score against us. Which isn't hard. Duh.
We need a great Defensive coordinator to come here and take Tennessee to the next level.

As far as I concerned we haven't had a great secondary since the 90's.

Just don’t have the horses let the coaches get his players in there then if it doesn’t improve or get better then let’s evaluate them…the coaches have done well with what they’ve had to work with, give them some credit..

Tennessee doesn’t have the players what Bama and Georgia have yet.. it’s gonna get better sun came up today and If you believe the good lord made it happen. It’s a sport played by kids and we beetch and complain what we can’t control… Go Vols🍊🍊
While I agree with your view on patience, I don't see us getting the players of Alabama and Georgia. Even with this year's class, they have twice as many blue chips as Tennessee.

There is a good chance Auburn announces their new head coach next week and whoever that is will probably make his first call to RG.

Our defense has been bad all year. ONE game that was truly good, IMO, was against UK. I think we might win the SC game if we got a do over with a healthy Hooker. Hindsight says throw 6-8 man blitz consistently and DO NOT give a 10 yard cushion … we’re going to give up big plays, but also stop a few of those TD drives. Regardless, IT happened and will define this season. I just hope we LEARNED from this embarrassment. SC came to play and unfortunately we didn’t. The perfect storm .. and it happens to everyone, just not usually this bad.

Why don’t you just quit be a Vols fan! We don’t need you. Find you a bandwagon to hitch a ride with. Georgia is looking for some more fans. Oh… but they are only taking perfect ones. Sorry
You don’t even know me and you judge my fandom based on this post? Get a life and grow up!!! Or realize this is a message board for cripes sake….everyone has an opinion and each counts. Why do folks even bother with you. You’re not even worth it

Vols secondary is not very talented, but the defensive line was beaten up by SC’s Offensive line…….QB had all day to throw and he had the night of his life
Maybe the Vols defense does some soul searching, along with the offense and finds enough Pride to beat Vanderbilt….. maybe
This game is all about Pride!
Go Vols

Two years ago when this staff arrived, did you think we had a good defensive roster? I didn’t. I don’t today either.

They need time.
Any knowledgeable fan knew Tennessee would struggle big time on defense. Sat night was terrible thou. Much worse that it should have been. Let Heup run his program.
