    Wide receiver class looking shabby

    On the bright side, we don't really have anyone to get them the ball either.

    Yep, he gone:


    Still says Florida State WR on the page. I hate to say it, but we lost this because the Tennessee brand has completely lost its cache. Maybe it's been that way for awhile, but you can tell this guy likes the sound of playing for Florida State.

    Dang. Sounds like he has UT to thank for not ending up at Coastal Carolina and he still might give us the last second Gaulden.

    I know recruiting can change minute by minute, but dude was literally recruiting for UT 8 hours before changing his bio. Hoping Pruitt can bring him back in the fold.

    I hate what Tennessee has become. I hope Pruitt can bring us back to national prominence. These kids don’t know anything about Tennessee anymore.

    Or is it that they do know about Tennessee, and Tennessee isn't what it is in our minds? I mean, I know that you know that is the case. Just sad.

    The UT "brand" now is a national punchline and awful, nonsensical catch phrases.

    This makes me want to punch all those mother [uck fay]ers who whined about losing recruits from message board negativity, not realizing the long term effects on recruiting for enabling and justifying a mediocre program.

    It's sad that people are posting GIFs at this kid of UT's 1998 National Championship. As someone pointed out, it was the Sears trophy and both UT and Sears have pretty much been irrelevant since then.

    butch jones did so much damage to our brand, way worse that dooley. all dooley did was lose games, butch attached a layer of gimicky shit that going to take years to clean off.

    Too much truth in that, it hurts my heart.

    I agree. Butch is/was worse than Dooley. The biggest issue is to keep Jimmy Haslam away. How does that guy manage to operate Pilot but delivers shit with the Browns and Vols? He has to be smart enough to know that whatever he's doing, has done is not working?? Is he not??

    He’s a top man. All top men just need more time and resources.

    You’re right. They know the Dooley and Jones era. That’s what we are right now.

    So was Alabama before Saban.

    It doesn’t take long for the sleeping giant to wake up, just need the right coach.
