Dirty Dozen: A Butch Jones Memoriam.
This week's edition of the Dirty Dozen would like to reflect on the memorable career of Butch Jones at Tennessee. Umm; not really, but the shoe did finally drop on him following the 17-50 pasting that the (not) volunteers took from former Dirty Dozen member, Missouri. That moves up Arkansas' Bret Bielema and Nebraska's Mike Riley up one chair in the Dirty Dozen Coaching Academy. By the way, was that a shoe or brick that dropped on Butch Jones?
This past weekend's events put Tennessee; (not volunteers), knee deep into the list at #8 after a week long hiatus. They join three other teams from the 'Best conference in America'. The ACC-pui is just behind with three teams thanks to Pitty returning after allowing fellow long time,Dirty Dozen resident, North Carolina to double their win total at Pittsburgh.
So, without further adieu, and with no apology, here is this week's Dirty Dozen.
Oh; and don't miss the Dirty Dozen Wayoff Prediction Show at the end of the list.
