As Tennessee’s level of play in the SEC has gone from bad to worse this season, frustrations have mounted in Big Orange Nation. With their team now at 0-4 in conference play, and having scored touchdowns in just one of 16 quarters in conference play, UT fans have worked themselves into a lather over their coaching situation. And amid what they perceive as silence from the corporate offices of the university’s athletics department, fans are beginning to aim their vitriol at athletics director John Currie with increasing regularity.
In fact, if a growing number of Tennessee fans had things their way, Currie and head coach Butch Jones would join the ranks of the unemployed alongside one another. Immediately, if not sooner.
