Saturday I encountered something unusual: Tennessee fans, clad in orange Vols gear, rooting for their team to lose. “We want Butch Jones gone,” one fan told me. “The sooner he’s gone, the better for Tennessee.” Jones and his Vols got blown out 50-17 by Missouri, maintaining a perfect record of 0 wins in SEC games this season. Finally, the folks in the UT athletic department had enough.
