 Man it feels good knowing the good guys won this recruiting battle. It seems like I was this guy a few years ago...

For whatever reason, Tennessee's athletic department seems to be really bad at hiring and firing coaches. They forced Fulmer out. They hired Kiffin to replace him. They hired Bruce Pearl as their basketball coach. They forced Pat Summit into retirement. They hired Dooley to replace Kiffin. They couldn't close on Charlie Strong and had to settle for Butch Jones to replace Dooley. Either they're in a really bad funk or there's some kind of stupidity-inducing asbestos in their AD building.

and this suprises me.  I know they wanted him, but most people in Knoxville are really kind of expecting recruiting to take of next year. The only rationale for, uh, being this emoitional is that rest of their class looks pretty weak-- and "buh...buh...buh... the SEC!!"

I am glad to say I have never been this guy.

As much as I follow recruiting, I think the only live announcements I've ever watched have been the ones on the Under Armour/Army/Semper Fi All-American games.  And I've certainly never even pretended to be this upset about losing out on one guy.

This video definitely captures everything i HATE about recruiting.  Random fan with zero connection to player (and in all honestly probably the school too) gets emotionally involved in a teenager's college selection.  Really?  My guess is when he's old enough to have teenagers he wont get this upset (real or fake reaction) when his own kids make their choice.  All that was missing IMO was a shot of him tweeting something negative to Green and then my own personal recruiting hate video would've been complete.

His life this morning will be 100% exactly the same as it was yesterday morning.  As is ours.
