Tennessee’s Jones: “We Have Absolutely Zero Depth”

gfx - they said itIt may have been stating the obvious, but first-year Tennessee coach Butch Jones called a spade a spade today during the SEC teleconference.  Speaking of the challenges facing his squad — after two blowout losses on the road at Alabama and Missouri — Jones had this to say:

 

“With us, it’s been a process.  It’s all about developing our football team and our mentality, and we want it right now… but we’re going through that learning curve, really, what it takes to play winning football…

I think the thing right now, in the realities of building our program, is we have absolutely zero depth.  That’s been extremely evident.”

 

Indeed it has.  And being cursed by the scheduling gods hasn’t helped matters.  With a team depleted by early NFL departures and the attrition associated with multiple coaching changes, Jones’ Vols have played six ranked teams (Oregon, Florida, Georgia, South Carolina, Alabama and Missouri), four of them on the road (Oregon, Florida, Alabama and Missouri), four of them in the top 10 (Oregon, Georgia, Alabama and Missouri), including two teams that have been ranked #1 and #2 for most of the season (Alabama and Oregon).

Saturday, ninth-ranked Auburn makes a visit to Neyland Stadium.  The Tigers will be the seventh ranked team UT will have faced and the fifth ranked inside the top 10 at the time of the game.

That schedule would be daunting for a team with depth, much less one that’s in the rag-tag shape of Jones’ roster.

I agree with sojourner as he hit the nail on the head and I still believe it was stupid to fire Phillip Fulmer. He should have been given at least one more year. I really believe in Butch Jones and I believe he will given sufficient time to turn the program around. Tennessee has no choice because replacing head coaches every three years is just stupid unless it is Derek Dooley and Butch Jones is a good coach with the ability to be a great one which Derek Dooley was not. I would be ashamed to take 5 million dollars from Tennessee after the way he performed for 3 years as a coach. This program really needs to make 6 wins and go bowling to any bowl because of the extra practice and for recruiting

what jones is dealing with is the incompetence of mike hamilton, the former a.d.  what kind of moron would hire a head coach with zero qualifications other than his last name?  the icing on the cake was the five million dollar golden parachute should dooley live down to his resume (he did, in spades).  this blithering idiot had the option to get out of one of two daunting out of conference games, oregon and north carolina.  guess which one hamilton chose.  hamilton had the ability to screw up anything he touched.  it is a lingering gift.
