I give that to Butch. He was the right guy at the time to take over a sh1t show and provide some stability. Now it’s time UT got a proven winner to take us back to the elite levels
    As soon as I typed it, I realized rebuild isn't right word. UT has had consistent top 15 recruiting classes under Butch and the facilities and such are top notch. I meant it more as someone who can right the ship and properly utilize talent.
    Prime example: Alvin Kamara. After transferring from Bama, he goes to UT and is SEVERELY underused. Butch kept plowing Hurd, who obviously didn't care and wasn't dynamic while not giving Kamara enough touches.

    You're hearing wrong.

    At least you better be if Currie wants to be there long.

    The boosters have promised too much money for this hire to come away with PJ Fleck.

    It really sounds like UT is opening the wallets, but I don’t think it’s all for the head coach. I think they are talking to a couple of candidates, and determining how much money will be available for assistants. A few people have confirmed reports that some assistants have been contacted who would cost major dough. Those assistants are across multiple teams NFL and college, telling me this is not an active head coach, or he would be bringing his own existing staff for most roles.

    I’m hearing a certain candidate is all in if he gets the funding for the assistants he wants to bring.

    Kamara is da bomb! He's doing wonders for the Saints! Expectations were not this high for him, thanks Sergeant Carter!

    He was going to sign with UGA until he saw the depth chart.

    No way that guy who is tearing up the NFL could ever compete with UGA's super backs.

    The NFL should probably just go ahead and swap the Falcons for the Dawgs.

    Pretty sure most NFL GM's take Gurley over Kamara.

    Of course, Herchel was talking college and Gurley and Marshall were both very good college backs.

    Don't bet on that after this season.

    Gurley is getting 4.4 yards per carry. Kamara is averaging 6.5 yards a pop.

    So Now you want to look at ypc? lol Poor Kelly (4.6 ypc), he fails in that regard...

    Kamara only has 64 carries. Not exactly a large sample size. I am pretty sure no GM is taking him over Gurley.
