I tried liking this a few times, but couldn't.
He’s an awful choice like the last two, but I’m still disappointed that the fan base won’t hate the choice as much as I had hoped.
Reading this thread has made my night a lot better. Have the fans planned a riot yet?
The UT fans are pretending they just made the hire of the century.
Guys like Sexton are ruining the game.
Not all of them.
Well to be fair, in this century they’ve hired Kiffin, Dooley, and Jones. So in that context...yeah still no.
If he sucks then we will be miserable for another 3 years. If he does great then he will bolt for Bama when Saban retires in 3 years. I'm stoked !
So are we.
When in reality, they're just relieved it's over.
You do understand Ox, that the Vol masses pretending Pruitt is the hire of the century and you proclaiming he is an awful choice are as equally subjective and hold no true data to support either case.
Of course the reactions are subjective, since they are based on zero results. Perhaps Jeremy Pruitt will turn out to be a great head coach, but there is no evidence to support this. Shouldn't Tennessee be able to attract a head coach with a winning resume? And before anyone should shoot down Dan Mullen, take a closer look at what he did at Mississippi State. Maybe he will succeed or maybe he will fail, but--if you want to be objective--he is a FAR better hire than Jeremy Pruitt. The UF program has obviously suffered and may be in shambles, but not even close to the level of Tennessee. The fact that they cannot attract a decent head coach says a lot....and nothing subjective about that.
If you ask 100 UT fans right now if Pruitt or Mullen would be a better hire at UT, 80 of them would say Pruitt, primarily because it's wishful thinking. Now, if you asked them BEFORE Mullen was hired at UF, 98 of them would have said Mullen. Painting the sky orange because that's the color of their glasses. Pruitt's a good hire for schools like Indiana, Arizona State, Rutgers, Virginia, or North Carolina. Which is exactly what UT's peer group is right now. Unfortunate.
So they hired a guy who wants to stay on at Bama through the playoff in order to help their cross divisional rival win another title? Do I have that right?
http://www.espn.com/college-footbal...-assistant-coach-jeremy-pruitt-new-head-coach Might be good for them, but I do wonder why he would want that job unless he has some relationship with UT.
Pruitt is a good coach. The east is going to be harder than I was hoping.
I didn't realize that Pruitt has never been a HC at any level.
Give it two years.
