Yes, we definitely need another SEC East powerhouse. Its boring watching Georgia own the division. Almost as boring as watching the Crimson Turd own the West and play for the national championship every year.
I was against Fulmer being fired to begin with, and history has proven me right. Just like everyone saying I was crazy because I wanted a Tennessee-Florida State matchup....until it happened.
As a Vols fan, I've been pretty much permanently pissed off since Fulmer was fired. And it just keeps. getting. worse.
Kiffin was a lousy choice, but he did almost beat Alabama. Lost because the team's kicker couldn't hit the broadside of a barn. Only good thing I can say about his time as the head coach.
Dooley was a nice guy, but as a coach he was a joke. Jones was almost as bad a coach, but worse of a human being. I was not optimistic about either. Fool that I am, I actually was about Pruitt.
The problem right now is the defense. They've not been great shakes to begin with, but have gotten worse. Giving up 38 points to Georgia State, who shouldn't have scored more than 13, should have gotten some of the players in hot water. The BYU game went into overtime due to players on defense blowing assignments.
I suspect the new Defensive Coordinator will be looking for a new job after this season if not before. But some of the players need to go along with him. Its like they're not even trying.
Pruitt won't be in the hot seat unless they crap the bed and lose every game the rest of the season, because it would take $40 million to buy out his contract. Us fans (the reasonable ones, anyway) know they'll be losing to Georgia and Alabama. Florida, maybe. But if they lose to UAB, Pruitt will probably end up running the defense the last three games and might as well start working on a new resume.
Some unreasonable fans already want Pruitt gone and think the simple solution would be to make Fulmer the head coach again.
I think the Gators will win, but it won't be a blowout. Our offense is decent, but not great. We'll lose due to the garbage defense screwing up again, I'm sure. Only consolation is that they might actually draft a few good players after the season and bench some of the crappy starters if there are any still around.
When Jones was fired, a lot of fans and sportswriters wanted the school to pursue Les Miles, and were blasted for that suggestion. I was one of the blast-ers. Hindsight being what it is, I'm now kind of thinking that they should have.
