I like it
Why is the NFL or NHL or Premier League different than College Football/Basketball? Should an NFL coach get a minimum of 4 years? Hell, hockey and soccer coaches/managers are changed after 5 months.
Is it because of the "amateur" aspect of the game? That all went out the window with Spurrier got the first million dollar contract. IMHO, of course.
It is a new day, and when the school is charging people $125 for a ticket to a game, plus parking plus gouging for concessions, never mind the gouging they are giving season ticket holders, the rules have to change.
Fans better get used to it.
I agree with that. Amateur status be damned, this is where people pay dearly for entertainment.
It's a multi million dollar business
to' up from the flo' up
Read one "expert" opinion that had Jones leaving for "greener" pastures before UT would ever fire him.
probably because of the fans and them not properly appreciating butch.
You would think that was a joke....
These are the greenest pastures he can ever hope to see if he can't ever win 10 games here.
one of my favorite apologists arguments is the one where either you will lose your current great coach because the fans aren't on board or that you will never be able to hire a good new coach because he'll be aware the fans didn't support the prior one.
I could see him jumping to a new job after this season, but it will be a step down.
I don't get the reasoning of not wanting to make a change because we've had so many coaches the last few years. If Gruden or Kelly would come to Tennessee, Butch's ass should be on the curve as soon as possible.
He needs to be at a school that doesn't get this much attention. He'd be a good fit for a lot of programs, but Tennessee is above his ability.
I could see him at a school like WVU if Dana gets fired
Going from Rich Rod to Great Value Rich Rod in Butch would be full circle for WVU
Butch and RichTod are light years apart as coaches.
I agree, which is why he's the great value brand in quality compared to him
Great value still means worth paying for.
