Other media dicussing Butch Jones to Michigan http://www.foxsports.com/college-football/outkick-the-coverage/starting-11-the-calm-before-the-college-football-storm-092914
I would be more pleased with Mocs hosting a first round playoff game. . . . .I do think that Butch Jones will be in play at Michigan. It along with Bama, Notre Dame, Ohio State the most storied programs. You also cant discount Butchy being a Michigan native and growing up a Michigan fan. It very well may be his dream job. Michigan has more money than almost any school and the largest number of living alumni of any school in the country. He may or may not go there , i dont care either way, but if Michigan calls he will definitely listen, no doubt
Speaking of the Ryder Cup, i am sure that was quite a celebration on Europe's team plane on their ride home to Florida. . .
Winners- the 300-plus who came to the "Mother of All Tailgates" the Moc Luau Tailgate. . . .The UTK we-are-happy-with-moral-victories Vols, fans were giddy over a 3 point loss . . . .Remember when Butch Jones was at U. of Cincinnati and the Michigan native said that Michigan was his dream job ? It could happen. And make no mistake, if Michigan calls, Butchy will most definitely listen. And Michigan could be desparate when, as expected, the Harbaughs turn them down to stay in the NFL. Already talk on Michigan message boards about Butch Jones. And Michigan is home to Butchy. Easier to win national championship there in weak Big 10 than at UTK . . .
I think Georgia will have the UTK game way in hand by halftime. People in Vagas are not stupid. Georgia by 3 or more touchdowns
Great article on Lane Kiffin by Paschall. Kiffin really is one of the best play callers in all of college football. He also is one of the very best recruiters in college football. Just think where the UTK Vols would be if Kiffin had stayed ? much better than they are now. and please dont say "on probation", Bama is not going on probation because of Kiffin and USC did not go on probation because of Kiffin. I know this upsets Vol fans but had Kiffin stayed they would be significantly better than they are now. And, if Vol fans think they are excited they can boo and harrass Kiffin when Bama comes to K-town, they better be careful about tugging on Kiffin's cape, he might just put 50 on the Vols.. . .
The debate can be made either way on GOAT , Peyton is in the discussion along with Brady, Montana, Elway, etc. but Peyton's poor playoff performances cant be dismissed, to many key interceptions and nationally he has not shaken off the "choke" label. For longevity Manning and Brady are still neck and neck. Manning would have the edge over Montana for longevity and "Dan Fouts" like stats, but not for clutch performances and the same can be debated with Elway. Manning is clearly "Mr. Sept,Oct,Nov" but Brady is "Mr. Dec and Jan.", a fun debate but not as clear cut just because we live in Tennessee and like Manning for all he stands for , etc
Peyton is better than Eli, no debate
Stewwie there is plenty of room for argument that Brady and Montana are better than Manning. You cant just declare that with only one Super Bowl win that his stats make him the best of alltime. He is great , no doubt but his poor performance in playoffs and the last Super Bowl are not just the opinion of a few. Manning has 21 NFL playoff interceptions . . .
Peyton Manning may have redeemed himself on the final drive , but the interception he threw on the next to last drive seemed typical of Manning in the big games. Manning is great and a "Stat Machine" but interceptions in big games, playoffs and Super Bowl keeps him as slightly less than Brady and Montana
