NSFW: It’s Meltdown Time! Special Edition: Tennessee hires Josh Heupel

New, comments

The Vols who have internet access don’t seem too pleased with this choice.

NCAA Football: Texas A&M at Tennessee Knoxville News Sentinel-USA TODAY NETWORK

In case you haven’t heard, Tennessee’s new AD Danny White, formerly of UCF, hired a search firm and, after an exhaustive process settled on... Josh Heupel, the head coach at UCF. Heupel is known for his offense, but since he took over for Scott Frost the win total at UCF has regressed in all three of his seasons.

Many Tennessee fans, for some reason, still fashion this a top tier job and were apparently delusional about the impact pending NCAA sanctions might have on courting a new coach. This, of course, makes for delicious meltdown material worthy of a special edition.

The language in this one isn’t too reprehensible, but there is some cussin’. If you can’t handle the occasional f-bomb then point your browser elsewhere.

The rest of you, enjoy.

Danny White is a clown. This is a dead hire. It has zero juice. Neyland will be lucky to ne half full. Large majoriry wont support this hire or program. We are dead.

How do you probounce his last name?

is it Hoop-ull

Hue-Pell????

Hi-pell....nah I have no idea either

With the program in shambles, roster depleted and impending NCAA severe sanctions, about a well as you could hope for honestly...

We love regression

So now we’re back to “no one wanted the job”? But I thought White was a game changer? That’s what this place was saying just a few days ago. Now it’s back to “what did you expect”?

Remember when Auburn, South Carolina and Texas were hoping to land Heupel? Yeah, me neither. He is a stiff. More blowout losses coming.

What a joke, I’m done till they hire a actual coach who wtf he is doing. If Heupel was good he already would be coaching Oklahoma.

White really looked far and wide for his man, didn’t he?

Did it ever occur to the OP that this is where we are as a program and everyone else said no? I’m apathetically excited: “sure, I guess I’ll support if I have to”.

This deserves a 21 Mattress fire salute

He may do ok. But depression is an understatement

This is an absolute trash hire!!! As I said in another post. Heupel will not be able to recruit with Saban, Kirby, or Mullen nor beat them!! Stoops and Drinkwitz will probably eat his lunch too!!!

Innovative hire. Has a AD ever brought the coach with them before? We were told White was innovative.

This is a humiliating hire. We are the laughing stock of college football.

Wish I could have my mind erased with everything tennessee football so I could stop caring

Should I crack open beers At work to celebrate or drown in misery?

He looks like Fulmer and Pruitts love child

So disappointed in White. He’s just another slick snake oil salesman playing UT for $$$&

Here is the optimistic counterpoint: In about the 3 years you’ll get the chance to it do all over again.....Maybe it’s not that optimistic after all

We paid a god d*mn search firm millions for the guy who had an office next to Danny White at UCF?!?!

At least we can go into next season with low expectations.

what the fuck

Another garbage hire. Danny can pack what he has in Knoxville and head back to UCF

Wanna be a top tier program? Stop with 2nd tier coaches! #FML if this has any truth to it. It maybe time for #VolTwitter to wake up. #GoVols #Tennessee

I’d rather use a spoon to reverse my vasectomy.

My excitement has left the room.

I hate everything about everything.

I need a friend to text

WHAT THE FUCK ARE WE DOING

Plenty of people will be hitting the transfer portal if Heupel is hired. This is straight bullshit!!

Hate the hire. As a life long fan I will not support this hire. All he’s done at UCF is get worse each year. I’m done!

We care too much. I do too. If they don’t care, we shouldn’t either.

Meltdown imminent please evacuate........

We paid over 2 million to get White here for this shit . We could have saved money and sent the water boy down there to get this guy.

NIGHTMARE.

Tell me this is not the truth.

So we spent millions on a new AD to hire a guy that is getting worse each year?

SHUT IT DOWN

Dude looks like a Walmart version of hank hill

#FIREWHITE

It was not worth showing the NCAA our buttox so we could go out and hire Heupel.

I’m out

Is Gus Malzahn not available? He is a home run hire for us.

Please God, no

Garbage. Just pure Garbage Hire.

Vols are not back

I am in the fan transfer portal.

Here we go, dumpster fire

2021 is making 2020 look soft.

I’ve been trying to tell y’all we belong in the ACC. Total beta cuck move

Ahhh.

Never change, Vawls.

Never change.

Roll Tide.
