A younger OC that is motivated to win and be the best is probably the difference. TF was still "working" but just seemed to be living off his history and didn't want to progress or push hard to improve. Just kept riding it out for his paychecks until retirement. Maybe we all get that way at some point, but working with young athletes that's not fair to them.
Bottom line......it’s long past time to deliver a conference title. What concerns me more is the spouse of a newly hired assistant is already on record publicly proclaiming she plans on Murfreesboro being a one year gig.
