    Great question. IIRC, he interviewed a couole years back too & T Boone upped his contract, didn't he? I still think Schiano would've done well in Knoxville.

    Gundy to FSU, Miles back to Stillwater and brings Pelini with him. Eek

    I read that is why Pruitt didn’t take the job, waiting on FSU.

    Man that's hard to believe he would turn that down. Wonder what he didn't like that made him leave that offer on the table.

    His D would probably do fine in the Big 12...

    Not sure I see him as a coordinator again, but that could be a step towards getting back into an fbs school.

    Potentially seeing your name painted on a rock as a rape apologist probably isn't that appealing to very many people.

    If that's the case why bother showing any interest in the job.

    Power play against T. Boone? Who knows, it doesn't sound like Gundy was ever seriously considering it.

    Could be that their fan base does stuff like taking to the streets and starting fires every time they get upset with their head coaching situation.

    This is getting good. They might end up having to give the job to Brady Hoke

    I'm shocked that the AD still has a job. Has anyone heard if they still owe Schiano any money in this mess or is this going to get tied up in court for a while?

    I read somewhere that Shaino will look for compensation. I don’t remember which report or the specifics. This whole thing has been such a cluster it’s hard to remember what is what and where you read things.

    It’s been glorious.

    How hysterical would it be if they had to hire back the dude they just fired because nobody else will take the job? And how much more hysterical would it be if he then told them to shove it?

    Greg Schiano is a good coach. My daughter's husband is a Rutgers grad and has had season tickets for Rutgers games for a long time. He loves Schiano and says he is, hands down, the greatest coach Rutgers ever had.

    Have you ever been to a Rutgers game? I have. Bush League all the way. Pathetic facilities, horrible fan support and anemic game day atmosphere. And the surrounding route one corridor in NJ is a suburban sprawl congested shithole. And my son in law agrees.

    If Schiano could turn that team into a bowl eligible winner on a consistent basis then he is a good coach. Period.

    Each one of these job interviews is leverage for him to renegotiate his contract with T. Boone Pickens. Now Gundy makes $7million/year.

    There's a rule in employee/employer negotiations of that nature where you threaten to leave. Do it once. IF you come back and try it again, you better have your bags packed.

    Assuming Frost to Nebraska occurs without any issues, how long before Tennessee fires their A.D. and comes after Moos? :D

    Can't see Moos going there after what he said about the SEC at his press conference on Saturday.

    But - Rutgers played the first college football game. Sometimes in times of trouble a fan base has to take comfort in past traditions and glory. No should know that better than us.

    See, some people said it couldn’t get worse.

    Then it got worse.

    If that’s true, it will definitely get a lot worse before it gets better.

    Wow. You would think the AD would talk to the Chancellor and get the most he can offer BEFORE he talks to the coaching candidate.
