    I am guessing the TN AD does have general parameters he is approved to offer - but if your chancellor wants the final word (and modifies those parameters based on what he thinks will fly with everyone that will criticize anyone not named Gruden) you got a HECK of tough job to actually hire somebody.

    Watching this Tennessee fiasco makes me so thankful for Bill Moos.

    I believe that is what happened so much that I posted it twice!

    Yeah, I'm not going to tempt fate by making fun of Tennessee. And we've had enough poor decisions to our credit over the last 15 years that we should have a little humility.

    I hope that they get nobody to take the job. It is what their fan base and their spineless ad deserve. Who the hell would want to deal with that if you had a job at the DI level. This is big time mismanagement by their board, president and ad

    This Tennessee coaching search is more entertaining than anything on TV. I hope it lasts for another month.

    That or fire the AD, because I think no coach will want to be tied to this guy after what's happened over the last week.

    This is just crazy. Now a .500 ACC coach, who came into the season on the hot seat is using Tennessee for leverage?

    I so want Tennessee to hire Lane Kiffin! That would be such an appropriate ending to this circus.

    Sounds like he's open to returning to OSU as a position coach or consultant. OSU hired one of Riley's former players who has been the OC at UW.

    You guys remember when that one running back who was committed to us committed to Tenn to then turn and commit to Texas A&M (Kendall Bussey). All three coaches he committed to have been fired (Pelini, Jones, and Sumlin).

    How about he pull a Dana Altman, accept it then say no. Then we can get a fan protest when he is hired and a meltdown when he leaves.

    There's an online petition with close to 10,000 signatures for Kiffin.

    Lol, there are reports today from Kiffin that his agent reached out to them and was told they weren't interested.

    They just need to call Butch Davis and tell him the whole thing was a practical joke and would he please get his ass back to campus and start recruiting.

    They're going to end up out a whole bunch of money and with a worse coach than what they started with.

    Intro press conference....

    Well, he (whomever) may not have been our first choice, publicly about 20th but that's ok, because in the end he was the best choice and the one we really had an eye on all along.

    Sumlin would be a good hire for TN - just give him some help with hiring a quality DC (Bob Diaco is available). I read somewhere TN has reached out to 78 potential coaches so far to gauge interest in the job. WOW!!!!!!!

    Imagine the meltdown in Knoxville if Gruden went to FSU.

    I guess I suffer from anxiety, I'm just not comfortable being amused by the TN disaster until Frost is official. Lucy has pulled the football away at the last second too many times around here. BTW if disaster strikes give me Kiffin as a consolation prize. He seems to have matured into a hilarious d-bag who actually is able to back up his talk with good coaching. Maybe.
