Have heard his name thrown out there, but I highly doubt it. To me, that's like when Bill Callahan got fired from the Raiders, and took the Nebraska job. Nobody won, let's put it that way. I don't think there needs to be as much of a rush. A lot of coaches don't get hired until late December. No reason to rush to get a bad hire

You get what you can get. It is sad but coaches are not knocking down the door to be at UT right now. If I am not mistaken Dooley was paid well and there was not much to "reap". I am for UT good or bad. I say give him a chance. GO VOLS!

5th choice is 5th choice. Not beating door down due to knowing what it's going to be like for 2-3 years possibly?

Or longer.lol If (I know is is very very very unlikely) we can get the talented juniors to stay. We have a great O line, good offensive coaching staff, and a few, very few, talented players on defence. Maybe we can rebuild the defence and pull seven wins next year. I would be happy with seven. If these things don't happen it could be lean for a while. GO VOLS!

I think the offense should be fine. I'm more of a pro style type of guy personally. The key thing will be maintaining the spread he wants to run, but have an understanding that short yardage and goal line packages will be a key to close wins. Also, it's important to throw a few under center plays in to throw the defense a bit.

The defense is still my main concern throughout this whole transition. We saw how long, meaning never, it took the defense to develop this season. Will we be 4-3 or 3-4? These are main concerns at the moment with the hire. I'm also curious how is kickers and punters fared under his watch

No way we get 7 wins next year. Ours is one of the toughest schedules in the country in 2013.

I said if the juniors stay and if the defense gets straightened out. Your probably right but its call realistic optimism you should try it.

I really want to try it. Just don't want to get my hopes up. And I am being a negative nancy as well because 7 wins is possible. Assuming we beat Kentucky and Vandy, that should get us to 5 wins. We would need to beat Missouri and Auburn to get to 7. That is possible. But the schedule is brutal next year.

I agree! Should have a lot of tv time but only because most the teams we have will be ranked. I agree on the hopes up thing I was physically sick after the Florida game this year. It can only get better. GO VOLS!

As long as the man can get higher caliber recruits, then he will do fine. It's still Tennessee, for God's sake. The problem is, when you start losing the recruits you once got, and then they are on other SEC roster. You lose your edge you had for over two decades. That's what happened when Fulmer went, and we still haven't really stolen a great recruit, other than Janzen Jackson and Da'Rick Rogers. However, we saw what happened to both of these gentlemen. There was just NO structure or disciplining while Dooley was here. That's got a lot to do with our current state of affairs

Kiffin's discipline was no better than Dooley's; he just wasn't around for 2 more years.
