Fla. will be tough on the recruiting trail now that Aaron Hernandez is giving up all that street cred and recruiting within the "system"!

And will be for a very LOOOOOOOONG Time.

Good article and good assessment. In my opinion, 6-6 would be a successful season considering UT's lack of depth and the level of competition faced.

I thought Kiffin was a dangerous hire. I though Dooley was an absolutely head-scratchingly terrible hire. I think Jones is a questionable hire, but with real potential. SO FAR he appears to be doing everything right. But only time and game-day decisions will tell. Lots of people can recruit well and say all the right things. Few can game-plan and play-call at the championship level and that's where Jones' success or failure will be decided.

Personally, I was hoping for a new head coach that had proven himself as a coordinator at the SEC level.

Gator fans sure do remember Ron Zook....... He could recruit and could fire up the fans. Even Myer won N/C with Zooks players.

In the end, Zook could only win on avg. 8 games a season in the SEC. Just a small reminder on how tough the SEC can be....

For what it's worth, I'm not putting alot of stock in this and it really does'nt carry alot weight till he coaches in the sec but, for whatever reason college football live ranked Jones as I best remembered 6th best coach in the nation for gametime strategy. Like everyone else has said, we'll see.
