    Obviously, years ago, they should have done more to get Cutcliffe.

    But they are not changing right now, especially after investment in new OC.

    The AD, despite being a sleaze, is actually looking at the improvement from week 1 to 2.

    And the ut opponents in the sec that have to recruit against their $, facilities and other resources are very much hoping that they would go after a coach and system that would make many of their common recruits turn away from ut.

    They just have to show them tape of 1 game.

    Fulmer won the Natty using recruits out of the ATL, our recruits. He lost his pipeline and I hope we find it.

    Yes, it is hilarious, though of course Fulmer did win a NC that Majors never did. But certainly since then the worm has really turned.

    He had a better team than any George Olleary team and finished in a higher ranking.He had the best season since 1990 and with his recruits. Hate the man if you want but he will be remembered positively in tech history.

    It wasn't that they just lost to BYU - it was the way they lost. They literally snatched victory away by leaving a receiver wide open on 3rd and 6 with 20 seconds left to give up a last second fg. You have to work hard to lose a game that way. Of course how we lost to them was just as bad.

    Majors was fired because he was like 4-12 vs Alabama. Fulmer did much better but was absolutely destroyed by Saban his first 2 years and then was fired. Tennessee hasn’t beaten Alabama since. That streak might get to 20 before Tennessee wins again

    Yeah, in those three years I described, Tennessee was the higher ranked team everytime, and was beaten by Alabama everytime. In 1990, in fact, Tennessee was #3 and Alabama was unranked, and they still lost.

    Of course they're long past firing coaches for losing to Alabama. At this point they're not firing coaches for losing to Georgia State.

    Neat fact: Tech actually has a higher winning percentage against Alabama than Tennessee does.

    Phillip Fulmers success was having David Cutcliff, outside of that I've always questioned his abilities. Don't know that he's ever made any other good hire. It seems today you better have a good AD, we're fortunate to have TS, look at what we had between Homer Rice and TS, pretty bad IMO. I will say that between HR and TS we made a lot of needed improvements which means we may not have wound up with TS and CGC and company without them.

    Interesting because so does the current coach.

    What goes around, really goes around.
