Funny how this game works....In Fulmers hayday you were winning 10 games a year but not enough titles so you get to a point where 10 wins is just not enough. Then you get to this point and your begging for a 10 win season just to feel good again. I'm almost 40 and i certainly remeber the bad years at Bama...I wouldnt trade the success we're having now for anything and I never really felt like Saban would leave anytime soon but what happens to a fan base when you play for all these titles then go through a stretch of 10 win season but no championships.....then 10 wins is not enough to feed the Bama fan base.....is that when Saban grows tired of the expectations. Who knows...Hopefully I wont find out for many years. I'll just keep enjoying this run we're on because it can change overnight.
Hearing from my inside sources that it is going to be Mike Shula, just working out the details.
Yes, high academic standards are clearly what's holding Tennessee back.

Butch Jones. Who???
Word is now Strong has said no as well. Fedora on deck maybe?
I think all the people saying no to Auburn and Tennessee means coaches don't view these jobs the same way fans do. Fans think about the Vols going head to head with the Tide and Gators. Of Manning throwing TDs and Fulmer winning trophies. But maybe coaches look at the Vols and see a program with the 3rd or 4th best local recruiting area in it's own division and a fanbase that won't be happy unless you are fighting for the top of the SEC every year. And if everyone is throwing around stupid money maybe it's better to get filthy rich, win 10 games and stay employed at Okie State or Louisville than get rich and get fired for winning 10 games but losing to UF and Bama in Knoxville.
Oath Before Orders
At this point, UT just needs to bite the bullet and hire Petirno. If they make a sub par hire again, they are done for a loooong time.
"Because Bama now sucks just like FSU used to suck when we were getting dominated by OU. Does it make sense now?"- Sliger (FSU Fan)
why not hit the NFL like the Nittany Lions did? don't understand why more people don't look to an assistant there...
IMO, hiring Petrino would be like putting a 50 gallon propane tank next to our dumpster fire of a coaching search. It's not going to end well.
John L Smith say's hi
Tressel would be a great hire there... Honestly.
