Butch Jones just dropped the "family" bomb in his presser. Are our two biggest rivals, historically, both going the cult direction?
"To give anything less than your best is to sacrifice the gift." Steve Prefontaine
I listened to his introduction press conference and I've been very impressed with everything he's said, including, but not limited to his use of the term, "family." The way he presented and elaborated on that term, and how he pushes/loves his players, I really think the Aubs should take note.
He lost me at "the most winningest coaching staff in the country the last couple of years".
"family" is the new recruiting bs/lie tactic to prey on those hs athletes who have grown up in tough situations.
What does talking about 'family' have to do with being a cult?
I understand people get sick of the barn overusing the term, but...pretty sure players from every team in America would talk about their team being like a family.
Not sure how this is cult-ish
Well, a cult is a group of individuals who choose to follow a set of abnormal beliefs, often delusions, and may include idolotry, as well as faultless following of an idealistic leader.
Tell me again where there's confusion?
Ok. I understand the definition of a cult.
Just not following you.
Because this coach used the term 'family'- that means they are a cult?
My bad man. I was just poking fun. Obviously not everyone that uses the term family is tethered to a cult. Just enjoying a laugh at the expense of our rivals whom were so elated to see us go through hard times.
I guess I should have used a (g)
Sorry man. I think i'm just in a bad mood today. RTR!
The winningest coach he has is Sal.
"Nobody makes me bleed my own blood, nobody!"
He lost me when he said that UC put more players in the NFL over the last couple of years and named off 5 players names. I thought we put more than that in the first round. He will be processed like every other coach in the SEC.
I thought he said they lost the most production. Im not sure he is right but, that is possible. If those handful of players accounted for most of their production he could be right. IMO he was very impressive. He won the press conference. The part I heard anyway. He also mentioned process and alot of talk about being champions in everything they do. I don't know how successful he will be but he talks a good game.
What is he supposed to say? "Well, I'm not Nick Saban. Hell, I'm not even Charlie Strong. But I'm who you're stuck with so you might as well get used to it." I'm sure that will sell lots of season tickets.
Coaches, for the most part, all say the same things at these kinds of PCs. Some of it is usually debatable. It's just talk. He'll ultimately be judged by his W-L record.
Me to....He will learn fast this is not the Big East....

Barn is burning
Our DC will be around a little longer
Best head coach in America
No reason to be in a bad mood
see charles manson. nuff said.
Choose not a life of limitation
Listened to it and he sounded like Les Miles 2.0. I winced when he used the phrase "we want to be a Champion in everything we do"
Wonder if he watched Saban and his PC on the plane ride over?
