If we consider the number of players and coaches that have left Alabama in the past 24 hours, and then extrapolate that trend to continue over the reminder of the offseason, I like our chances.

Seriously?
<br>First off, the guy was in Tuscaloosa, Alabama. It's not like that's fighting for the top city in America.
<br>
<br>Second, Knoxville is a great small city and the people love football down here. People avoid planning events on football Saturdays because they know Knoxville shuts down on game days. .

Tuscaloosa for four years - nothing special as a city, but it is a great college town.

Knoxville for four years - infinity times better of a city than tuscaloosa, central to the beach and mountains, atlanta, and nashville, charlotte and charleston.  I had a great time living there and the campus is beautiful, except for the big effing orange. 

Knoxville was really nice.

Tennessee will be changing from a 4-3 to a 3-4.  Probably not the best idea to change defenses while the coach is on the hot seat.   

I know the Obrien ship has sailed but what does this mean for him?  Does he fit in a 3-4?    (Just curious about a local kid's future)
