A couple of random thoughts. I read the Tulsa paper today and it said one thing Gundy was upset about was his ability to control the football schedule. And, that he prefers to schedule patsies in non-conference games and feels that the AD is hurting Ok St. ability to succeed by scheduling Top 20 opponents. I don't know who ultimately schedules teams at UT. Hamilton took the heat for booting UNC from our schedule though he said it was at Dooley's request. If this is true, Gundy won't be happy at UT because we "typically" have a decent non-confernce schedule (Oregon next year). Though, it seems UT non-conference schedule is getting weaker.
Second, when I watched several games on Saturday - several championship games - I kept hearing players being refered to as from Tennessee. Wisconsin's QB is from Johnson City. The Chattanooga paper had an article that Tennessee High School coaches gave the last UT coaching staff a F. And, Vandy recently has had success in stealing in-state players from UT. The next coach while needing to recruit nationally must also win the State of Tennessee recruiting war also. It hurts to hear that UT's talent is not up to par, but several former Tennessee High Schoolers are playing key roles in other major conferences championship games.
