07:17 AM ET 05.21 | On the surface, without games to play or practices to coach, this is the slow season in college football, but not for coaches at top programs. Butch Jones says his job is nonstop. ... Yet even amid his travels to various speaking arrangements, fan and alumni events and booster receptions, and his long hours in the offices in Knoxville, Jones takes time to review the work he's done running the Volunteers' program. "I evaluate myself hour by hour, minute by minute," the coach said before Thursday night's Big Orange Caravan stop at the Chattanooga Convention Center. "Every night when I kind of slow down a little bit, I always replay the day over in my mind. What would you have done differently?"

Nah, man. Your post is subtle. It comes across like, "Who spilled the corn flakes and didn't clean it up?" Clever sentence and paragraph structure, or the inadvertent consequence of a hastily dashed off post?

Here's hoping Butch builds a base upon which the Volunteer football program may rise.

Of course, the heat from being in Hell probably saps his energy.

Butch Jones has the mettle to face Lucifer's Vessel without flinching, his inner strength, humility before God, and righteousness unwavering. His character will withstand every subtlety and full-on onslaught by Beelzebub and his human host. He will persevere and shield his charges from the crimson flames of eternal damnation. He will uphold the Orange & White and all the best qualities thereof.

FIFY

I truly pray that this will not come to pass, that Jones's Tennessee teams will have a rivalry with Franklin's 'Dores teams, eventually reestablishing the Volunteers' margins of victory and cementing the Big Orange as the State of Tennessee's gridiron superpower.

Butch Jones has sold his soul to try and face a saint without flinching, his contract with the Devil notwithstanding, and his dark witchcraft will be unwaveringand yet will be to no avail. His soul, while damned for all eternity, will endeavor to endure the full-on onslaught from the Hosts of Heaven and all that is good in the world. He will try and persevere and shield his devil's imps from the white hot flame of righteousness wielded by the beloved of God. The Orange and White will be cast down like Lucifer was during the 29-9 beatdown in Lucifer's last game with the Orange and White.

Yea, the damned with be cast down with great fury and anger and you will know that the Alabama Crimson Tide is the beloved of God!

Of course, the blinding color of that electric-creamsicle sweater probably saps his energy.
