Thanks to Jodi Ramsey and Sherra Gillespie for hosting me Wednesday at Citizens National Bank on the Parkway in Pigeon Forge. You know I'm passionate about helping in the community and these folks have been heroes up there in going the extra mile for the victims of the recent fires. Toward that end I want to call your attention to a way to help that I'm sure will impact the families involved. I will put my name behind this and you can trust that everything below is on the level. When I say 100% of the money will directly benefit the families, I mean 100% of your money. Please, if you're going to donate to this, go local.

An account has been set up at CNB – Sevier County Fire Relief Fund. 100% of the donations will benefit the families directly impacted by the wildfires.

There are 3 ways for you to make a donation:...[more]
TRUE THOUGHTS ON JONES

FREE THOUGHT FRIDAY

MY CONCISE OPINION ON BUTCH JONES: I don’t believe in Butch Jones. Four years of data points are enough for me to form the opinion that he is not the long-term answer for Tennessee. If I were the Athletic Director and had overseen the program for the Jones tenure I would make a change. The problem is I’m not the Athletic Director and a bigger issue is no one else is either. It is my belief that Tennessee would be fool-hearty to allow anyone but the next AD to fire Jones and hire a replacement after a season that you could make a solid case that while unsatisfactory was not a fireable offense. Especially at a time when the potential candidate pool is as shallow as I can remember. I understand the “why wait to do the inevitable” viewpoint but that only applies when you trust whoever is in charge to do the inevitable and there is a clear-cut choice for replacement....[more]

Wednesday Live from Citizens National Bank in Pigeon Forge
Posted: Wednesday, December 7th, 2016, 8:16 AM
I'm seriously in the process of drafting a pledge for the upcoming off-season. I'm being 100% serious when I say that I refuse to be pulled down by the overall vibe around UT sports. We have to get past this. Butch Jones is UT's coach. It's time to rally around him and get on board and cheer for him to win the east next season. Being dismissive toward him ad nauseam isn't going to change anything. UT is my alma mater. I want them to win. I'm thrilled for the recruiting news from Tuesday. I refuse to call Trey Smith a tourniquet as some have. He's a five star player that was smartly recruited by Butch Jones and his coaching staff....[more]
IF BUTCH IS STAYING; HERE'S WHAT I'M SAYING

MONDAY MUSINGS:

WHAT CAN BUTCH DO? I made it expressly clear last week that my confidence that Butch Jones is the right guy to lead the program forward has expired. Without a new boss having the opportunity to properly evaluate the football program and Jones’ limited -if not non-existent- opportunities elsewhere however it is almost assured he will coach Team 121. That being the case my hopes are that one year from now the Vols have completed a special season and I am apologizing for doubting their leadership. What are my other options? Hope they tank so that a change is definitely made following the 2017 season? I’ve been real close to that before and refuse to waste a year doing so again. So, what can Butch do to make me feel better for the 2017 campaign in the long off season of low expectations and doused excitement...[more]
COACHING TIER REVISION

FREE THOUGHT FRIDAY

COACH CLASSIFICATIONS: Several weeks back Tony asked me to put together a tiered rating of current College Football Playoff Division (mostly) head coaches. Since we will soon (relative term) be in the market for a new one I thought it would be a good time to dust it off so we get a good look at potential candidates. This of course excludes guys that will come up in discussions like Lane Kiffin, Greg Schiano, Jim Bob Cooter, Jon Gruden, Phillip Fulmer, Peyton Manning and Donald Trump.

I have changed the status of several coaches since my first effort not due to what happened to their teams this season but because I poorly categorized them the first time through. Here are the revisions:

-I removed the Already Peaked category because it wreaked of age discrimination which a fossil such as I should have no part in....[more]
