    Gotcha. I just thought maybe you could tell us about the meltdown. As someone else brought up, Mark is still available. ;)

    It will make it to 14 pages I bet before they hire anybody....They should just hire Les so they have somebody. He can find assistants.

    This is getting out of hand. How AD Currie hasn't been canned and Fulmer named AD is beyond me.

    Sumlin would rather stay unemployed and his buyout will not be reduced if he takes another job.

    They need to start reaching out to Helfrich, Mora, Graham, Strong, current Texas Tech coach and see if anyone will bite

    They may need to just come out and announce we are offering 5 years 20 million please contact us if interested.

    This could be good for us. The longer this goes on, the more likely that they hire MR and take his paycheck off our books.:Cool::Cool:

    It's pretty clear that at this point they are totally going for a recognized name versus somebody who might come in and do a really good job for them. There has to be a dozen group of 5, MAC whatever coaches out there who could run that program successfully and would gladly take 3-4 M/yr. Their AD is making the SP mistake x100.

    You know who might actually be really good at UT and I'm not joking.....Bill Callahan. He is a recruiting machine and I doubt would make the same defensive staff mistakes twice. They would love his offense.

    He's too smart to go back to college. Knows he's not a head coach.
    Someone from a mid major will eventually take it.

    Smart has nothing to do with it. $$$$$$$$$ He could quadruple his pay and I have no question that he would love to be a head coach again.

    Hot rumor on Twitter is Leach will be the next coach.

    Speaking of somebody they don't deserve. They'll like his offense if they give him time to find QBs.

    And Tennessee fans should thank Nebraska for Leach. It’s a lot easier to switch jobs when you don’t know who you’re boss is going to be.

    Leach's response. Darn - I was too busy watching the Sounders win the Western Division while Pullman was going crazy.:)

    I hope he uses Tennessee to get more money out of WASU. I need the UT coaching search to get me through this Friday.

    Leach has to be my favorite personality in CFB

    Leach would be a great hire for UT. The way UDub handled Wazzu, it might be time to take his show East. He should recruit better at Tennessee, and his offense will be a boost to the $EC

    Leach at UT would/will be interesting. As long as he wins, he will be the "crazy uncle who lives in the attic" that southerners like to fondly talk about. When he loses, tho, his schtick will not be so funny.

    That's the same no matter where he coaches. The question for him is can he win over their boosters. Same deal. Just win.

    With most of the SEC trying to compete with Bama by being like Bama, Leach could work.
