I will be very surprised if Pruitt doesnt get it done.
He's gonna have to drain half the Tennessee River to put out the dumpster fire in Knoxville.

Probably.

The Grudenites (who deny their very own existence) are already saying this is a terrible hire and won't give him a chance.

It's been mentioned that he might be leaving anyway. Something about how he doesn't fit in with the staff, etc. Who knows though. It does seem like he moves around a lot though.

He is the kind of guy that will up and leave too. He doesn't have great people skills. He is a Bammer. He won't put up with it long if fans get on his case.

He was their 473rd choice. Plus Pruitt is an asshole. I just hope this doesn’t affect Horn’s decision.

We need to keep this guy in our corner. He is a proven winner with an impressive resume. Our D has performed well above expectations to this point.

Pruitt is a wait and see kind of hire. He definitely isn't a homerun hire, but if he can assemble right staff he can at least get them respectable again.

I don't think UGA (or USC to a lesser extent) is in any immediate danger of TN dominating the East again.


Fulmer isn't an AD. He may do a lot for the football team (or try to), but I feel for the rest of the athletic department. My guess is he will be gone in 2 years.....

Maybe, maybe not.

We are much better shape than we were three weeks ago, though.

Rumph, Sherrer, Gillespie, Friend, Helton, and Fair seem to each be on board already.

This will be the best group of assistant coaches on paper we have had since 2007 or earlier.

I just feel like there’s so much that’s wrong with Tennessee athletics as a whole, and that somebody should have been brought in who could act as a stabilizer. I don’t see Pruitt being that guy.

Is he a winner? Yes. Has he ever had to deal with an out of control Athletic Department? No. Tennessee needs somebody who can be more than a football coach right now. Not a guy who knows defense.
