Can't say that I am surprised after losing to Vandy yesterday.
So far Finebaum, chase Goodbread, Jimmy Hyams and Feldman have all tweeted it. PC at 2:00 with Dave Hart and Dooley will not be there. Usually when there are that many tweets there is truth to it.
You can't lose to Vandy like they did. O yeah, hurts that he hasn't won any SEC game this year (g) . UT, AU....sorry but I must revel in their misery.
O and Thanks Chef-Bama- RT.....ROLL TIDE Brother!

Ok Nick swoop in and see what we can take,,or,,rathar is who wants to come to us,,rtr
So is tomorrow too early to announce Petrino ?
gruden is a very real possibility.
You would think Sal will come back. Stay atleast until his son graduates.
How could this be possible?
hopefully sal sunseri can land somewhere good. maybe back with us. I will take him any day.
I just hope Kirby has enough sense to turn them down when they offer. They just fired a guy that only had one recruiting class of his own while inheriting a probation that just got extended. Place is a mess and governed by irrational thought.
Serious? Why the hell would he do that? He could have a number of NFL jobs
Here's a very real issue the Vols have to deal with, which isn't often mentioned: They had a $4,000,000 budget deficit last year, and now they are adding $1,250,000 per year on the expense side due to Dooley's buyout. Add to that a 3,000 per game drop in attendance this year. Add to that the $1,000,000 to $1,500,000 per year they will have to increase their head coach's salary in order to attract the type of coach they want. And then there's also the buyout for Sunseri and other assistants.
The Vols have some pretty serious financial issues which may prohibit them from hiring a guy like Gruden, even if he was interested.
If they don't find the money to hire a good coach, they better get real lucky with an underwhelming "cheap" hire, or their financial situation will get even worse.
That's why I think a guy like Charlie Strong is about the best they can hope for.
I also think Gruden is making at least a mil per year doing a much more relaxing job. He gets paid a lot of money to watch and breakdown football games with relatively little pressure.
The only thing that will draw him back is the "calling to coach" and potentially his wife.

Which is why they need to go out and get a big coach if they can. That will bring back the ticket sales and donations. If they do miss out on a "Gruden" type hire, I would expect Hart to give a hard look to Kirby Smart as the bargain hire.
If Louisville throws a lot of money at Strong like their AD suggested, it'll be interesting to see if UT would outbid them or if Strong would take a little less to move to a bigger job.
not saying they will hire him, but it is a possibility. gruden has lots of ties to ut and wants to get back into coaching. if ut is willing to step up with the money necessary, it could happen.
GrudenReally is making over $4 million a year doing what he's doing now. That being said, coaching is in his blood. He'll return at some point.
