Kickoff of the 2013 season is now 100 days away, and to celebrate, we here at Rocky Top Talk will spend the next 100 days sharing 100 of our favorite things about Tennessee Football. This is less of a countdown and more of a celebration of the things we love, the things we remember most, and the things that keep us coming back even when everyone is telling you not to get your hopes up too high for this season. You'll read about players and coaches, games and seasons, individual moments and our greatest traditions, plus a bit of random as well as personal stories along the way. And at every point along the way, we encourage you to join in the conversation in the comments. A series like this is a great way for you to jump in with our community if you're a long-time listener, first-time caller. It's our way of looking back and looking forward.
And so we begin today with the newest and most important piece of the puzzle. Butch Jones has been a part of Tennessee Football for a little less than six months. Let's consider what we liked about our last three head coaches six months on the job:
- Lane Kiffin: Assistant coaches! How 'bout that incoming class! He picks fights with Urban Meyer and Steve Spurrier! Not Phillip Fulmer!
- Derek Dooley: Not Lane Kiffin! Says britches! Great last name! Let's talk about Barbara some more! Told that one reporter off about former players at practice, boom! That hair! Not Lane Kiffin!
