:lol: I heard a Vol blogger/reporter say he had sources that Jim Tressel was close to signing. They were just working out the details. 5 game suspension for show clause be damned. :lol:

UM will never coach in the SEC again. He still has nightmares
of NS kicking his butt. The SEC competition almost put him
in his grave.

He won't be back. If he happens to get in a NCG one day,
we'll kick his butt then.

It was a joke post, but...

Urbs wouldn't go to snotsville even for a lifetime supply of Nexium... :lol:

I really don't think it was. They have every coach in America, active and retired, linked to their opening. They believe the greats are beating their doors down to coach there.

They want everyone in America thinking that all these coaches are knocking the door down to come to UT. No way Meyer goes to Knoxville. Does Kirby Smart finally make a move now that Richt may be off the hot seat for a while??

Smart is a good football coach and I'm sure he'll get his shot to be HC very soon. However I don't think Tenn is looking to take another gamble on an unproven guy or first time head coach. JMO.
The Meyer and Tressell stuff is way out there. Please excuse some of my fellow fans.

Would you opinion include Hart saying that previous head coaching experience is essential? :lol:

Not sure if you've seen it, and I heard it, didn't see it, but supposedly those are his words. I agree they won't go after Smart though.

I'd be interested in hearing your opinion as well. I asked Alvie and the Albanian underground network had no answer.

The latest vol update reports that they will introduce Vince Lombardi as their next head coach.

That's funny FunnGun. I actually missed the whole thing today and I'm glad I did. Got word late last night and Ive been out all day today. My dad gave me a few high points. One that stuck out was Hart pretty much laying into administrations to get on board or else. I knew he felt that way but I didn't expect him to call them out in the media.

Im honestly not hearing anything with much substance. Nothing that is more than good discussion. I hope to be privy to some info soon but we'll see. Hart is doing this without a hired search firm so that doesn't help any either.
What very little I do know that is not rumor or speculation. 1) Gruden is a real possibility. I don't think it happens and I haven't from day 1. However they have spoken on more than one occasion and the man has not said no (yet). It doesn't make sense to me why he would come to Tenn but what do I know. Gruden contacted Kippy Brown about joining his staff if he were to coach next year. That may mean joining his staff in Buffalo but Brown's family lives here and has many ties to Knoxville. For what all that's worth.

Jimbo Fisher is getting some pub about the job but in the end I think he just uses it to get what he wants at FSU. (Facilities).

The regular candidates that everyone is talking about will likely get looked at.
Sorry to disappoint but I just don't know a lot right now. ;)

Appreciate the reply, SecVol. I'm a little puzzled as to why they're not using a search firm too. Kinda makes me believe they have their man, or at least a very short list. That does bode well for the Gruden rumors though. I'm actually hoping Gruden does take the job. We need y'all to be strong again and a Muschamp/Gruden matchup would be badass. I've said before that instead of a coin flip we could just have them arm wrestle to see who gets the ball.
