They are holding me back for my benefit, but when they let me go there will be no stopping me, so they are just trying to rein me in until it’s safe medically and then I’ll be going and pushing myself.”I’m just ready for it. I know what to expect and that I will have to fight for my place. I don’t think there’ll be any playing 45 minutes for the Under-23s first. I’ll be expected to go straight in and I’m ready for everything that is coming.” last_img read more

Regardless Of Rumors, Butch Jones Is On The Hot Seat

first_imgButch Jones surrounded by his players.Twitter/@6NewsThis season was supposed to be a return to form for the proud Tennessee program. While Georgia was the favorite to win the SEC East, some liked the young, talented Volunteers to take a big leap and challenge the Bulldogs for a spot in the SEC Championship. After rough Lane Kiffin and Derek Dooley regimes, Butch Jones looked like the guy to lead the Vols back to national relevance. Instead, Tennessee is 2-3, with brutal losses to Oklahoma, and most recently Arkansas, another disappointing SEC program. The three losses have featured incredibly questionable coaching decisions, and the tide has seemingly turned for head coach Butch Jones.Butch Jones was a darling in Knoxville just three weeks ago, but now some Tennessee fans want to see him gone.To all the people wanting to fire Butch Jones: Charlie Strong will probably be available at the end of the season. #vols— Wesley Mason (@RealWMason) October 4, 2015What’s it like to have all the tools and still fail @UTCoachJones— Will Caffey (@Caffeyteria) October 4, 2015After tonight I am convinced Butch Jones isn’t the man for the job. He can recruit, he can say the right things, but he can’t coach…— Chase Slaven (@chaseslaven7) October 4, 2015Butch Jones has to go. There is no process. There are no bricks. Just mile high piles of cow sh*t— Zach Breazeale (@breazeale31) October 4, 2015Dear diary: today @UTCoachJones was a clown….again, when will he quit?— graeham jones (@JackDaddyJones) October 4, 2015Butch Jones sucks so much at coaching it’s hard to really describe. Recruits, please stop placating him. Dead man walking .— Baltz Vol (@Baltz_Vol) October 4, 2015Lyle @UTCoachJones has had 13+ lead in each of his games and is 2-3. All other Power 5 teams that have led 13+ are 157-5. #Vols #GBO— Matt Broyles (@matt_broyles) October 4, 2015#vfl #vols Here are Butch Jones’ impressive UT wins. pic.twitter.com/FHhBFvyOw7— Charlie Miller (@ChuckInMemphis) October 4, 2015“The magical cure” is taking Butch Jones out into the middle of the desert and leaving him there. kay? Kay.— Sara (@_saral93) October 4, 2015Brick by brick just ain’t cutting it anymore. House is crumbling. Not impressed with Butch Jones. Never should’ve fired Phillip Fulmer.#Vols— Heather☮Brewer (@heatherkayb) October 4, 2015To make matters worse, there are some very nasty rumors out about Jones now. They are completely unverified, but it can’t help the situation. Fox Sports’ Clay Travis, a Tennessee fan, tweeted a link to a post on the VolNation message boards, which includes an absolutely crazy rumor.Butch Jones is Derek Dooley with worse hair.— Clay Travis (@ClayTravisBGID) October 4, 2015You know things are bad for Butch Jones at UT when rumors that he punched offensive lineman Mack Crowder blow up: http://t.co/1p4rENPkTL— Clay Travis (@ClayTravisBGID) October 4, 2015 I don’t believe Butch Jones punched an offensive lineman because I think he’d swing and miss and blame it on youth.— Clay Travis (@ClayTravisBGID) October 4, 2015Again, these are just rumors, and pretty unbelievable ones at that, but even without them, Jones’ seat seems unbelievably hot after just five weeks.last_img read more
