1. 2020 is abnormal. Can’t judge by normal standards
2. $$ Tenn is almost thru paying Butch
CJPs buyout would be even bigger for 5 more years!
3. $$ Tenn is in an almost 40 million $ shortfall due to Chinese Virus, there are no funds.
4. There is no magic Booster or Boosters to come up with the $$
5. $$ to hire big time big name proven would take Big Time $$. See reasons 2-3-4
6. Last attempt at hiring made Tenn the laughing stock of America before Fulmer got there, It’s only been 3 years.. Media and Coaches / Agents not gonna be warm to another search..
7. Swallow your Pride. Tenn is not a top 20 job right now. Truth
8. It’s going to take 2 more solid too 10 recruiting classes to fix this team, change Coaches and you will start from scratch as 40% or better if roster will transfer if.. this is the one and done winter coming up.

1. 2020 is abnormal. Can’t judge by normal standards True but weird for South Carolina too
2. $$ Tenn is almost thru paying Butch
CJPs buyout would be even bigger for 5 more years! Muschamp's buyout is bigger.
3. $$ Tenn is in an almost 40 million $ shortfall due to Chinese Virus, there are no funds. South Carolina is over $50MM shortfall plus $300MM in less revenue than UT the past 15 years
4. There is no magic Booster or Boosters to come up with the $$ There is but politics are in play
5. $$ to hire big time big name proven would take Big Time $$. See reasons 2-3-4 It would be there for the right coach. If we go bargain bin again, then no
6. Last attempt at hiring made Tenn the laughing stock of America before Fulmer got there, It’s only been 3 years.. Media and Coaches / Agents not gonna be warm to another search..True but that doesnt mean Pruitt know what hes doing.
7. Swallow your Pride. Tenn is not a top 20 job right now. Truth. Wrong. Still better job than USCe. In the 15 range nationally
8. It’s going to take 2 more solid too 10 recruiting classes to fix this team, change Coaches and you will start from scratch as 40% or better if roster will transfer if.. this is the one and done winter coming up.The recruiting classes here the past 3 years are very similarly rated to the classes Mullen inherited 3 years ago at UF. The issue u
is coaching

Covid had nothing to do with thr lack of QB and overall player development during Pruitt's time here, it also had nothing to do with the losses to Kentucky and Arkansas.

Tennessee has been done paying butch, that money was put into an escrow account when he was fired and the payments are made out of that.

Covid isn't an excuse, see Arkansas

Fulmer is a terrible AD

Pruitt is even worse of a coach

Pruitts recruiting is mediocre by conference standards not to mention he hasn't developed any NFL talent and never mind the fact that players seem to regress under him the more they're around him.

Tennessee's not going to get "2 more solid top 10 recruiting classes to fix this team" with the blowout losses on the field on national TV and lack of development by these pathetic coaches . We've already fallen out of the top 10 for 2021 and will continue to fall with each additional blowout loss . This year's loss to Kentucky was the worst since 1936 .

Literally everything you said would require a magic booster to pony up 25-30 million dollars. It ain’t happening. South Carolina had easier way to do it since it’s hasn’t been playing musical chairs with insane buyouts for 6 years.


When you answered “there is but politics at play”, the rest of your answers literally are baseless

You aren’t wrong but I wouldn’t say there is no chance if we lose 8 in a row to finish the year. It may be a very small one

Maybe you are right but Muschamps firing means it could happen here especially if we finished with 2 or 3 wins.

Pruitt won't get fired in a Covid year. Just wont happen
Muschamp. It’s possible.
