What changes/differences does DH notice between the styles and personalities of Lyle and TT? Does TT look like he is settling in at UC?

Lyle is "Butch" Jones's REAL first name. He doesn't like it, so many of us have taken to referring to him by it.

Jones is a football coach and a good one.  Tennessee needs more than a good coach.  Plus, in his years at CMU and UC, Jones never won the "big" game.  He better win some big ones in a hurry at UT.

He is a good coach. But I also think he over reached. I am not wishing any ill will on him, but I think he will struggle in the SEC. Winning seasons? Yeah, maybe...prolly. But that won't be good enough.

Butch's biggest win at CMU was against Michigan State in 2009.   However, in retrospect that State was not very good and finished 6-7.  It was CMU's greatest team ever.   Butch's biggest win at UC was what, NC State?   We whipped the hell out of them, but truth be told that NC State team had a lot of guys out due to injury and Mike Glennon was just a couple games into his tenure as the starting QB.

All this being said, I think Butch is a good coach.  He could have had a great career at UC if he stuck around.   However, Tennessee will struggle for a few years and I don't know if the Volnation will be patient with him.   Unlike Brian Kelly who was wise enough to adapt his playcalling to the talent he has around him, Butch is not flexible and wants to fit a square peg in a round hole.  That is why we finished 4-8 in 2010.   We had some thin spots on the OL and on defense that year, but if Kelly would have stayed another year you can't tell me he would not have found a way to win 3-4 more games.

I agree, not sure how many games Volnation will tolerate the 'deer in the headlights' look that occurred too many times in 2010.

Butch is a good coach, and I liked having him around. Wasn't a big fan of his cross-country farewell tour, but other than that I thought well of him when he was here.

That being said, I think we got an upgrade with TT, and I'm excited for the 2013 season.
