Rumor: Gruden to UT (not same as other threads)

Postby OrlandoG8or » Fri Nov 23, 2012 1:03 am

Spoke to two different UT boosters tonight. They told me that as soon as Friday, but no later than Sunday, Gruden will be announced as the next coach of UT. 8 year contract at $5 mil per year. Take it for what its worth.

I still just do not get the attraction to Gruden other than he will temporarily create excitement for the fan base and recruits regardless of progress he makes. Although that will quickly fade if the wins dont come quick, ala Charlie Weis.

No disrespect my friend and as always I view myself as a guest here and I will respect the posters which whom reside here.
Having said those nice words............I suggest you find some more informed Tenn boosters to speak to.

I don't understand the negativity for Gruden. A successful coach, or CEO, surrounds him/herself with smart, talented people.

It won't be about Gruden, but more about his Assitant Coaches.

Many of my friends here really feel that Gruden in the "sexy" hire to provide the spark for the program. With that being said they also feel that Gruden is a very long shot to get the job. They describe it as it's Gruden or bust. From how it sounds if Gruden does not take the job they will view this as a major setback.

Are you kidding? With his massive career winning percentage of 0.540, he looks like a Raging Superstar compared to the past few dimwits they hired.

Besides, in 6 years with the Bucs, he was 9-7 three times. No one says Mediocrity like Gruden.....and that is a perfect fit for Tennessee!!

After Lane Kiffin fires his dad at the end of this season, does Gruden immediately snatch him up as his DC, reuniting the Bucs' SuperBowl winning mind trust? Monte probably still has some power-T shirts in his closet. Old guys like him never throw anything out.

Why is it that all threads just like other threads claim to be not like them? In before the merge. :)

For real Sasquatch.

Who was the long time poster on here who actually had the info on Stoops and how close it was until UM's unretirement plot and to setup the Daz tard to eventually take over. His name escapes me. Do you recall that?

"Vol nation" is in disarray, they're desperate, and they think they have to hit a home run in order to get out off the hole they're in. Trouble is Gruden, while a "sexy" hire, has never been a head coach in college and it' s a whole different ball game. The upside to their terrible situation is, my brother who went to school there, hasn't been able to rag on me for nearly a decade.... ;)

BSJ that is exactly what many up here are describing. It's a HR or bust. They are that much in disarray. And what Karma that a ex-clown AD is the head of that dumpster fire in Knoxville.

That story came from a poster on Gator Country, but it was supposedly straight from Shelly Meyer's mouth.

Thanks could not remember who that was. Knew that was a big stink back then and Foley supposedly had Stoopsy ready to sign then UM got wind of it.

I'll believe it when I hear it. That being said we've had our hearts broken with Kiffin and Dooley. I can't envision anymore blind euphoria because of a UT hire. I'll start blowing the trumpet when we start beating ranked teams.

Oh seriously...are we going to have to break out the "Our Bray is an Awesome Bray" video? You hire HR Puffenstuff and Teddy Ruxpin and the vol navy will be in full celebration mode. UTFootball = blind euphoria. Where have you been?
