    Who are the players that Butch has failed to correctly evaluate, utilize, develop or otherwise wasted, while at Tennessee? Better, how exactly did he fail / lie / misuse / abuse those players?

    I can't begin to know them all, but thought an exhaustive list might be enlightening.

    RUNNING LIST (Mods feel free to edit as valid names appear):
    1. Alvin Kamara
    2. Riley Ferguson
    3. Nathan Peterman
    4. Jalen Hurd
    5. Kyle Phillips
    6. Dillon Bates

    This is off the top of my head, and may not be accurate and/or worthy of inclusion. I'd welcome any corrections.

    Ferguson was a little self induced. He didn't run with the opportunity.

    Kyle Phillips has had multiple shoulder surgeries and is on the field quite a bit now.

    We're already at an entire signing class, and one which was loaded with both talent and promise.

    Others have brought this up on other social media outlets recently, and to be fair, have said it’s around the average for most programs. Maybe UT is a tick higher.

    Marquez Callaway

    And I don't see him being utilized any more this year as long as Butch Jones is our coach.

    There is no way that class of 2014 attrition is average.

    The average, out of a 25 man class, is 5 or 6 guys a class.

    Too many to think of, better question for me is who is a player he actually made better? I can't name one.
