I'm no insider - Just passing on info from my wealthy Tennessee uncle/UT fan. The story is that five Tennessee billionaires and Payton Manning all kicked in to buy out Gruden's ESPN contract in order to make it happen. The word is that UT will announce it before the Kentucky game.
Again, I'm no insider.
Color me skeptical.
Tennessee doesn't have 5 billionaires.
Perhaps this is the way the conversation started:
"Stop me if you've heard this one, so 5 Tennessee billionaires and Peyton Manning walk into a bar....."
They way Chucky runs through QB's .....gets them, works them, spits them out like a bad piece of candy....things would at least get very very interesting.
O, sorry, no offense at all to the op, just don't buy it. Hey, I've been wrong before, just not today. Yet At least I haven't been told so yet.
There literally aren't 5 billionaires in the state of Tennessee (there are only 4 as of 2011). This makes me kind of doubt the OP.
Bring him on........no big deal to CNS!
I wonder if most of the Billionaires from Connecticut are affiliated with ESPN? Bristol baby.....
I took it to mean Tennessee the school, rather than Tennessee the state, but they probably don't have 5 either.
Proves one thing. The coaching pool is mighty thin.
there is no buyout in gruden's espn contract. the only provision is that he can't coach over the life of the contract.
Sorry. Peyton is too busy buying Papa Johns franchises.
Isn't UT still paying off ole Fat-Fulmer's contract?
I wonder who the lone Alabama billionaire is? I'm sure it's obvious but I can't think of who.
Boom. Chef brings the facts again
