    I commented in the recruiting forum that 21 of 26 committed recruits are 3 stars. Seems like an awful lot...

    Dooley never recruited that % of 3 stars. Let that sink in.

    You both have too much #starfocus. Need to work on developing #highcharacternonstopmotorfocus.

    But Dooley lost every 4 or 5 star after their sophomore years

    Butch hasn't been much better. Unless that's a joke that went over my head

    To everyone else but the majority of Tennessee fans and boosters.

    Typically late to the party.

    So late the party is over.

    Need more data, particularly over more years. Minimum 7 in order to even begin to get a feel.

    Butch is hurting the players on purpose, so he'll have an excuse

    Nice piece. A more accurate comparison might be P5 coaches with the same number of years. Not a defense of/attack on B#tch either way.

    Guilty as charged. I don't mind the occasional "work in progress" type of commitment but surely UT can swing better talent.

    I'd argue that is unfair given the injuries this year, overall youth, plus unfair media/, message boards. Those things set a program back

    A lesser coach can get by on an occasional class like this one. But Butch needs his bluechips to stay competitive with Kentucky and South Carolina.

    Jesus. That is the most damning and saddening thing I have read on this board. Because it is so true.

    Look what Chris Petersen has done in no time at Washington with a very average roster. We need a coach like that.

    He's got some nfl talent on the defense and he's got a really good qb and rb. He's got talent in the important spots
