If a guy doesn't work for our new systems then he needs to go somewhere else where he fits better.

That'll open up a spot for us to go get a different guy that does fit well with when we're going to do.

That's basic addition by subtraction which all smart coaches use.

Now, lets all sing "Rocky Top' and get happy!

VFL...GBO!!!

Different level of ball being played, and a different set of expectations.

For instance, we crucified Butch Jones for losing at South Carolina by 3 in his best season. Matt Campbell lost by 17 to the Rajun Cajuns this year. At home. The Big12 isn't really a power 5 quality conference, and their annual OOC drubbings and losses against FCS opponents essentially make that irrefutable. He deserves credit, but Iowa State would be lower than Vandy in the SEC. Otherwise, he's gifted 3 conference wins against 3 of the worst programs in D1 with Kansas, Kansas State, and Baylor.
You should never bring up FCS opponents!! The SEC is just as bad as the Big12 when scheduling these "sisters of the poor." The P5 conferences should only schedule other Division 1 opponents. I wouldn't walk across the street to see UT vs. Tennessee Tech; let alone pay money for it.

If he is being encouraged to look elsewhere by UT because he doesn’t fit the new offensive system, I guess all the ‘commit to the school, not the coach’ posters will be out in full force condemning the coaches for getting rid of a guy who was apparently committed to the school. Also, apparently the talk in the first presser of ‘we adjust our system to our players’ rings a little hollow now.
