    Butch loves to make some questionable decisions on personnel. Let's take a year by year look

    2013:

    Dontavis Sapp over Jalen Reeves-Maybin at linebacker. Sapp was a decent linebacker here. JRM is most likely an NFL player who's one of the better linebackers in the sec.

    Peterman over Dobbs as 2nd string qb. Peterman may have ended his Tennessee career with more turnovers than offensive yards. Dobbs has set several records, such as rushing yards in a game by a qb, rushing yards in a season and the only Tennessee player to have 300 passing and 100 yards rushing in a game

    You could argue not starting Dobbs right out of the gate in 2013 was stupid, but I can understand Worley getting the nod. I don't understand continuing the misery after 3 games, though.

    2014:

    Worley over Dobbs. This was nonsensical. You saw Dobbs handle the offense for 4 games, he was rough at times but he allowed you to run your offense. No sense in Worley starting

    Coleman Thomas at RT. The guy was a center in high school, you roll him out at RT and expect him to block Eric Striker and Nkemdiche.

    Mack Crowder at center. He's the only interior lineman I've ever seen not touch a defensive player during plays

    Evan Berry didn't return kicks until UTC. That's coaching malpractice


    2015:

    Shy Tuttle and Khalil McKenzie were behind Danny O'Brien. Kendall Vickers isn't bad, but he shouldn't be on the field on 3rd and short, he is a 275 lb converted de

    Barnett in zone coverage, this happened more than once

    Jumper over Kirkland

    Chance Hall is a freshman All SEC tackle, he didn't see the field until Kendrick was injured against UGA

    Refusing to play Dobbs in '14 cost us the UF game at the very least.

    He got hurt against UF and pretty much was shut down

    What is his injury? Do we even know?

    Wait until you see the starting OL next year. He'll find a way to have talent backing up SoCon potential.

    Back and shoulder, to go along with a knee that was injured in fall camp

    He can't keep Hall off the field and Robertson, Wiesman and Jones gives him 3 good guards. Thomas is the starting center.

    He can't screw it up too bad, depending on who he has at left tackle.

    Add Charles Mosley to odd decisions. He was doing good things at DT all spring, was moved to guard and disappeared.

    He's stuck behind Wiesman, Jones and Robertson. Boulware is a guard too.

    Lose O'Brien to a suspension and Tuttle to injury, was Mosley? Sitting on the bench.

    10 receiver rotation.

    All I need to know this coach is a complete boob.

    I made my previous post referencing Moseley. Wait and see that reincarnate of Herm Johnson not see the field until October.

    Yes. Thank you.

    Anyone with a decent football IQ recognized him as the most pro ready member on the roster.

    Boobs are good. Botch, not so much.

    Didn't North have a concussion as well... I think there were 2 different WR that had them during the season.

    He said it once on a press conference, I think.

    Pig had a "concussion" right before he got the boot

    Not really a roster decision but how about always trying to get Jalen to the outside and then putting Kamara in on 3rd and short and running him up the middle. It's the dumbest stuff ever.

    Also, this is X's and O's, but does anyone remember 2013 Auburn when this staff thought it best to be nickel against the best rushing attack in the SEC

    And there's more, so much more. Incompetent, obstinate, rigid, and defiant to a fault. Not sure which is worse his OCD or arrogance? To close to call

    Stewart is another, once he returns and gets caught up
