VolNation: We're still glad we didn't hire Muschamp

Postby oxrageous » Fri Nov 30, 2012 5:29 pm

Interesting thread from the Vol faithful on the Gators hiring of Muschamp and why he may have spurned them:

Poor Vols. Year after year they get their hearts crushed by the Gators. Must be a tough row to hoe.

I'm glad they didn't hire him too. Haha, those idiots. They couldn't afford to pay him or that 1st year NFL $1mill OC either. Aren't they still paying Fulmer? I hope so, I liked fat Fulmer.

Is Muschamp good? Looks that way. Don't forget that the coaching ranks is a small fraternity in the scheme of things and my guess is it was widely known how much of a shambles the Vol situation was at the time. Why would Muschamp come here and leave the Texas keys behind knowing the programs state of affairs.

Please remember Muschamp had life long and childhood ties to Gainesville. Things like this are strong pulls to leave a program like Texas. Is Muschamp good? Ask yourself how has Texas fared since his departure. Not good.

They've developed a huge inferiority complex in Knoxville. I can understand why. Hiring Mike Hamilton was a major mistake for UT that will take years (if ever) and millions to undo. He did more to set the VOLS back than any competing team or school. It's not even close. That's the hire that Volunteers should focus on to fully understand their situation.

No doubt our 4 NCs in football/basketball in the last 6 years helped that. They knew they were never great enough to compete at the highest level in football since they imploded in 2005, but then having such a great basketball team as they've had yet never getting further than UF or LSU in the last 6 years must kill their last bit of hope heading into the winter. :lol: :lol: :lol: Especially after losing Bruce Pearl.

Do you remember how long it took for Foley to announce Muschamp? Wasn't it around a week - 10 days? Foley said he knew who he wanted and made 1 phone call to Muschamp.

UT's AD Hart knew he was firing Dooley weeks if not months ago. Dooley has been gone for 2 weeks now and they still don't have a coach. What kind of AD fires their head coach without knowing they have his replacement in hand?

The toothless wonders are just now figuring out Hart has to be down to about the 15th option on his list of candidates and no one wants to coach at their dump. With all of the job openings out there you know Hart wanted to secure a HC before they came open. Why else would he fire Dooley a week before the last game? Hart knew Auburn, Arky and UK would be firing their coaches at the end of the season and needed to get a head start.

Now, UK already has their guy and I bet Auburn and Arkansas will announce coaches before UT. They know they are about to get another low level experiment to revive their program that flatlined 8 years ago. It is funny to see them anguish over coaches they could've or should've had. :lol:

Champ had the keys to a top program in his hand already. Why would he take a step down to a second-rate dumpster fire program like tinerc?

This guy.... :rotfl:

I've said it before ... coaching gigs at places like Florida and Texas and USC are easy ... at least in relation to many other jobs. You can't stumble out your front door without tripping over a 5 star recruit. Plus, the sports media adores you from day#1. A coach has to really stink at his job or be under severe penalties from the NCAA to NOT win 8 or 9 games a year. That's why coaches who win at places like Florida don't have as much a claim on "greatness" as those that win elsewhere.

Muschamp took a job that he had a childhood connection to, but don't fool yourself into thinking that he wasn't scared of a job like Tennessee's situation a few years ago. He wanted an easier path and who could blame him? However, he isn't great. Never will be. A slightly above average guy can win big at Florida. No doubt the man has skills, but he was given the keys to a Rolls Royce that only needed a quick wash and a tune-up. A homeless derelict could win 7 or 8 games as HC at Florida.

Happy we didn't end up with him though. However, Dooley's fiasco makes me wonder sometimes ... nope, still glad we didn't get that idiotic, temper-tantrum throwing child of a coach. No matter how many games he wins, it's still Will Muschamp and I don't like the guy.

:lol: That is rich! I love it! They have an entire state as well as part of Atlanta and we have to share FL with other big FL schools and the rest of the country. LSU and Tenn have great recruiting ranges bc they have no state competition.

He's going to like Will Muschamp less and less each year as the Gators continue to kick their a$$.

Muschimp recommended Dooley to us. He should burn in the blazes of the same hell as Hitler for that one."

My personal favorite. UT getting trolled by Champ! I absolutely love it.

some of those guys are dumber than FSU fans, which always makes for a really entertaining read

some people don't understand how much players like playing for a coach like Muschamp, and how they will give everything they have for a coach like him

Well, you know what they say, "you just cant fix stupid". They should have kept fat Phil, they would at least won 7-8 games a year that way. I wonder who will finally decide to take that "hot seat". Petrino is the best fit. They just have to buy him a new motorcycle.....
