Some of the posts we're seeing here are precisely why we've had trouble getting what we would consider a "wow hire" coach. We fired a man with a 152-52 record, 2 SEC championships, and a National Championship less than one year after he won the SEC east and lost a close SEC championship game to LSU the day Miles announced to his players that he had turned down the Michigan job to stay at LSU. The Steelers couldn't have beaten LSU that day. What "wow hire" is seriously going to leave the gig they currently have to make a lateral move to an SEC rebuilding effort for virtually the same money they are making? News flash: every major program has big time donors and every major program who really wants to keep their coach is going to match or beat a UT offer. This wasn't as easy as we ignorant fans are making it out to be. I want to believe there is a "dumptruck load of cash" to put on a coach's lawn, too, but there ain't.
