Hopefully your Dad will, too, after the end of the NFL season.
Don't get us wrong - we don't like you just because of your Dad, but you have to admit that's a hellofa bonus. He is, after all, one of the greatest defensive coordinators in football history.
We're also excited to hear that Mike Hamilton called Peyton to okay your hire before you were offered the job. I'm sure you're new to my blog, but that alone scored you some major points in our book.
You did a great job at USC. We understand the Raiders situation had less to do with your coaching ability and more to do with Al Davis' lunacy.
We're excited that you've already hit the recruiting trail hard.
Unlike the comment Phil Fulmer made, we don't expect you to win every game next year. We do, however, expect improvement. That's what we're looking for -- consistent improvement each season. In 3-4 years we expect UT back to it's old glory. We hope the media will once again flood with images of UT player directing the band in Rocky Top after another SEC championship.
Welcome to the family. You're a Volunteer now. Your transfusion has begun, and we're hoping it won't be long before you, too, bleed orange.
The Hater and genderist
PS: Don't make me hate on you. Everyone on the UT staff that I've hated on has been fired. No pressure. The Hater.
