The thing is, Coach Fulmer has done an wonderful job here since he came . I was at one of the last games that Coach Majors coached. I could feel the difference in the way people was down on him. me One instance, a large sign popped up a few rows in front of me saying "FIRE JOHNY !!". A woman came down from the rows behind me and I thought she was single handed going to whip all eight or more of them. Things shouldn't be like that. It shouldn't be that way for Fulmer either.
We should be grateful that we had a coach that has spent as much time as Coach Fulmer, from a player to the road of becoming head coach at Tennessee. We will miss him.
All the same, I have over the last few years looked at the way the discipline, losses and attendance, to include students paying for their own tickets, and realized it is time to move forward.
If the University of Tennessee is making it harder for the average football fans to attend the games, they are going to have to pick up the tempo a little and make it more exiting and fun, sometimes traditional football needs some untraditional changes.
You used to see people wearing orange every time Tennessee football was being played, not any more. We need a spark. No we need an explosion to get the confidence and fun back into the fans. My pick would be Coach Spurrier -the coach everyone hates unless he is yours, or Coach Leach- the coach that may just be the most laid back, smart, and well rounded on offence and defense coach out there today. (PLEASE NOTE, OTHER SCHOOLS COULD MAY BE TRYING TO RECRUIT COACH LEACH , SO DON'T WAIT TOO LATE). Both coaches would be worth putting more time in trying to get them here before we loose too many more of our incoming high school commitments or fans. Thanks for reading.
