    East coast guy in the Smokey Mountians. I’m not a Schiano fan. How bad of an DC must you be if you give up 56 points to Iowa?

    I'm happy Tennessee hired him and we weren't in a situation where we thought that was a good idea. Guy shouldn't be a coach anywhere.

    Every coach is responsible for some stinkers. How does Urban's offense only score 24 points? Does that make him a bad coach?

    Schiano did good things at Rutgers before going to the NFL. He might just excel with better talent. To your point, though, I'd have concerns about his teams winning against superior and equal talent. Tennessee is in a tough spot regardless of the coach.

    He is a coward and a terrible hire for Tennessee. I understand their fans anger.

    What? Dubs is right ALOT more than he’s wrong and more than about anyone on this board. If you want to argue about manners, ok, but it’s hard to ignore how often his info is spot on.

    Gruden to Tennessee was always a fantasy. And if they are after Schiano that is a big let down to loyal Vols fans who were hoping for a splash hire. However, I think he is a solid coach. Anyone that could turn that shithole Rutgers into a winner can't be all bad.

    There were rumors that Dan Mullen was their first target. Lends credence to the idea that Florida is now after him so Tennessee is shifting to plan B.

    Uh oh... this bodes well for Wisconsin!

    OSU has a distraction!

    Now if Clemson, Oklahoma, and Wisconsin all win, Alabama will be left out of the playoffs with their weak schedule!

    Any fan base that thinks they have Gruden locked up is not going to be happy when the actual coach is named.

    This year. Next year. 5 years from now.

    Schiano is very overrated. His resume is pretty much indentical to Mike Riley - a .500 record at the college level and 2 failed years in the NFL. Only the Big East was much weaker than the Pac-10.

    Pretty good hire for them he did a hell of a job at Rutgers and being in the NFL and around urban should help him with recruiting.

    UCLA & Kelly.

    Florida & Mullen.

    Tennessee & Schiano.

    So far, I think all 3 schools hit a grand slam.

    OSU fan here. I glad he got a head coaching position. Not sure Tennessee is a good fit. I thought our defense underperformed this year. Linebacker play was below average. Too many busted coverages. Schiano was a better DB coach.

    With Florida finalizing a deal with Mullen it sounds like you've got your man.

    Agreed. Just don’t tell the Vols and gators fans.

    Sumlin to Arizona State and Frost to Nebraska and everyone did real well.

    Two out of three on my predictions back in October. I had Petrino to Tennessee then. Mullen to UF and Kelley to UCLA made too much sense. Just like Frost to Nebraska.

    Vols fans are flipping out as we speak and for good reason. Go to their board. You don't even have to read the threads. Just the titles.

    With the best DL to ever play college football they were able to hold Iowa to just 56 points.

    @haynesworthiii


    I’m just going to say this if we hire Greg Schiano as our next head coach my options will be open to which college program I will Be donating my TIME and MONEY to. (No disrespect to GS) but if UT leaders don’t take football serious then I will find the program that will!!!

    Having ALBERT HAYNESWORTH calling you out for lack of commitment is like having Johnny Manziel holding an intervention for your drinking problem.

    I have never been one of HTO/BGII/CoachDub's "buds", nor has he ever made me overly angry, I view him as just another guy who posts here. But I have noticed the last year or so HTO has been polite and measured in his posts, so I think "rude" and "blowhard" are somewhat harsh at this point and maybe even dredging up the past unnecessarily.
