I've never paid any attention to the Vols in my whole life (53 yrs old), but after Kiffin left I followed him to Rocky Top. He has one exciting team out there. I love his playcalling. He just looks so much "into" the game and aware of the situation. He communicates with his players and other coaches in a manner he was never allowed to do in Oakland. If he were to have been allowed to "coach" the Raiders...we would have been leading the division today. Al Davis really showed how out of touch he is in the Kiffin firing. Kiffin is going to go along ways as a coach. Tennessee had the #4 recruiting class in the nation and will be even better after his first year and the team has put together in only one season. I am a OU Sooner fan and I can tell you that Tennessee will be on the top real fast. I will bet dollars to donuts that they will be in the top 15 next year, and probably chasing a BCS championship the following year. Kiffin never "lost" alot of games in Oakland....Rob Ryan and Al Davis lost a bunch tho.
