Is the Nebraska problem also the Tennessee problem?

I've contended for a decade now that neither of these traditional powers has the recruiting base or national draw anymore to compete with current elites.

I still feel that way about Nebraska.

But, Tennessee should have some ability to reach into Memphis (which produces the necessary thug quota, but is also a hotly contested recruiting ground), Nashville (growing and heading towards full thug potential), and neighboring southern states.

Can Tennessee avoid the Nebraska problem?

Not to mention that Tennessee has shown to have the worse, dysfunctional school leadership of the two.

Is it really worth having perennially good football teams if the requirement is to have a state and cities full with thugs that are basically No-Go zones?

No & even the most ardent troll knows this deep down. Comparing Nebraska's recruiting footprint with Tennessee's is laughable

Tennessee's issues have been first and foremost at the AD level & higher which then trickled down into back to back to back bad coaching hires from Dooley to Pruitt.

I think they finally got it correct with Danny White.

Nebraska does not have Georgia next door to recruit from. Dawgs are hot, so that hurts but any voLOL coach needs a solid base there.

Imo, yes.

Tennessee's problem has been their AD/administration and coaching hires.

They've always been able to recruit talent to Knoxville.

I think Nebraska fricked up by leaving the Big 12 and hurting itself with the Texas/BIG 12 recruiting.

I think UT has their AD problem solved now and I think Heupel will turn out to be a pretty good hire

Nebraska and Tennessee's recruiting bases are nothing alike.

Tennessee suffers from bad decisions....just like nebraska. But tennessee will be back.

Not sure they can win a national title in the next 5-7 years, but they have GREAT talent in that state.

The HFC is such an important part of winning that it’s hard to say how good they can be, as neither Nebraska nor Tennessee have had anyone worth a shite in that role in a long time.

The 90s were an anomaly for the Vols, as was the last decade.

70s - winning percentage 65%
80s - winning percentage 67%
90s - winning percentage 81%
00s - winning percentage 65%
10s - winning percentage 51%

They will be “back” but “back” most likely means 8-10 wins a year.

Tennessee has more reach into Atlanta than they do in Memphis.

I'm sitting here in a hotel with the girlfriend after seeing Roger waters last night. I'm good.

Tennessee would be the 5th place team in the B1G west. I know this because they lost to The 4th place team who was playing without their two best players.
