    Never say never. It's still college ball and things have ways of happening that only make sense in hindsight.

    But, a looooooong time does seem likely.

    Volnation absolutely loves Conehead Pruitt and is convinced he is better than Mullen and that he will return them to prominence soon. Seriously, there is a whole thread on the front page of their forums dedicated to it, lol. Disregarding the fact that he was like their 80th choice, lost by 26 to Mullen at home last year and only won 5 games and completely tanked the end of the season.

    I wouldn't be too giddy because I remember a few years back when Tenn. basketball team lost to a bunch of nobodies in the beginning of the season and everybody was saying we would kill them twice. But we lost to them that year twice. I know that was basketball but Tenn football is still a sec school with SEC players. We have better players and we have a better coach but anything can happen. I rather talk about how good we are than talk about how bad others are suppose to be.

    Of course there isn’t an infallible way to determine he’s better. But the other 2 set a pretty low bar. So it’s just my opinion he’ll do more... whether or not you agree.

    “The game has changed, and Tennessee doesn't quite have the advantages it did with facilities and recruiting,” said former Florida coach Steve Spurrier. “It's a lot like Nebraska right now. Can they get it back? Shoot, there's a lot more to it now.”

    I love how that quote comes out of nowhere. It’s almost as if the writer went full-blown Mortal Kombat and told Steve to, “FINISH HIM.”

    “It’s a lot like Nebraska right now.”

    One of Surrier's quotes still rings to this day.....

    "You can't spell Citrus without UT"
    Priceless!

    Everyone can have down years in college football. Some have longer down periods. I have watched Oklahoma, Nebraska, USC, Oregon, ND, Pitt, Penn State, Clemson, Bama, UF, Miami, ... go from incredible highs to real lows. Based on my observation, once you hire the right coach, your fortunes can turn around quickly.

    Let this sink in.

    Will Muschamp is 7-0 as a HC against UT.

    Not researching this so not sure, but he was at UF for 4 years and played (and beat) UT every year - and he’s been at USC for how many? 3? If he’s never lost to UT, wouldn’t that make him more like 7-0 against them?

    Clearly the inbreeding has tainted their talent pool.

    Lumpy will get his team to play hard but runs out of players about mid season
