    I hope our new AD will employ a similar contract model. I’m tired of hearing about coaches getting their full contract while also grabbing another job... at rival SEC schools in some cases. It’s downright criminal.

      This is a very good point. In fact if they could find a coach named Billy Joe Jim Bob, then they would probably secure every 5 star player east of the Missippi river:lmao2:

      http://www.freep.com/story/sports/nfl/lions/2015/10/30/jim-bob-cooter-arrest/74879326/

      From the linked story:

      "James "Jim Bob" Cooter, now 31, was arrested and charged with aggravated burglary in 2009 and with drunken-driving in 2006, according to previous reports from the Associated Press and The Tennessean. In June 27, 2009, a woman said he climbed through an apartment window, stripped down to his underwear and got into bed with her, the AP reported July 2, 2009. Knoxville police spokesman Darrell DeBusk said at the time that there was no indication Cooter knew the woman."

          We need Kiffin back in Noxiousville. I feel like we got cheated from the glorious implosion that was imminent.

            Jones was given the option of coaching the Vols last two games against LSU and Vanderbilt. He said "No".

            Yeah, but you can still do things after the firing that breaches.

              No bidding war. They have a lock on Gruden.

                Could you imagine how many nights @ThreatMatrix would cry himself to sleep if The Mullet went to UT

                  Mullen's azzholishness will cost their recruiting classes 10-20 spots at least.
