in response to Enki_Amenra:

Some are asking why people are losing their cool with AD Hart, asserting it isn't his fault the top choices haven't signed, because he did offer contracts.

This is a hallmark of a high-powered professional, whether in academics, athletics, or any other high-profile position. He's paid the big-money for his skills.

As an AD at a major university, being an Elite Closer is an absolute must.

An AD, who is truly capable of performing his/her job at an Elite Level, must have superior sales and closing skills that allow him to secure the country's top power coaches.

These situations reveal exactly what calibur an AD is operating at.

Sure, any AD can offer the most Elite Coaches in the country, but being unable to close the deal is what separates the average ADs from the prolific and potentially legendary Athletic Directors.

Restart the list and name the top, most experienced and successful coaches alive today. Give each of them a burlap sack and start filling it with $100's. The first one to collapse under the weight of money is who we hire.

Otherwise;

Larry Coker
Jim Tressell
Mack Brown
TCU's Peterson
George Quarles (Couldn't resist)
Pete Carroll

or...

Give Fulmer a contract, make it known that it is strictly a 3-4 year contract, designed for UTK's future Head Coach - Peyton Manning.

As long as I breath I can promise you Peyton Manning will NEVER coach a down at the University of Tennessee, A legend like him will only come by to visit and donate money but never coach. He is a quarterback not a coach BIG DIFFERENCE. Coaches have to deal with all the off the field baloney that comes with these kids. Peyton and Eli having part ownership in an NFL team I could see that happening.

Did Dan Mullen even approach Tennessee or inquire about the opening just curious?

Because why should have HART thrown 4 million dollars at him and offered him the job, besides if he was so great Florida would have snagged him from Miss St. over Muschamp in a heartbeat.

Just curious

in response to TNVOLNTX:

Correct! And who did Jones beat in said bowl game? Definitely worse options out there than Jones.

Cincinnati 31 Vandy 24

Written on Names to watch: Tennessee coaching search Day 18 (updated Dec. 6):

Im not saying HART is great by no means but if he fails with this hire hes out the door to.
HART threw money at GUNDY he said NO
He threw money at STRONG he said NO, Personally these guys in the end were afraid to FAIL knowing that if they didn't win here they would be back being cordinators again.
I fell for the GRUDEN hype at first but then realized he was never interested in coaching here to begin with he just let everything blow out of proportion so some NFL teams would coming calling for him so screw Jon Gruden if he had any respect for UT he should have put a end to that rumor right away. Realistically why would a Superbowl winning coach revert back to college ball with a possibility of failing at this level would create a very long road back to any kind of elite status he might hold in the NFL. What NFL superbowl winning coach has EVER come back to coach college, I can't think of even 1. Gruden is not the type that is going to babysit 18-22 yr young men.

Time to give this Butch Jones a Tennessee welcoming and make him feel at home, the coaching fraternity in college is pretty tight and if we show negativity because Lord knows I've done it myself then what coach with a name is going to want to come here.

Anyways I support Jones if he comes , because he come from a good pedigree of Cincy coaches.

It's nice having a coach that is driven to make a name for himself with enthusiasm this guy is going bring, then our last mistake of hiring a guy with NO winning track record as a head coach at ALL and was hired on the DOOLEY name ONLY!

Yes Dooley beat Jones last year , but who went to a bowl game and who didn't.
Tennessee should be able to beat Cincy with talent alone with a coach like Dooley, Cincy has nowhere near the talent Tennessee has. Jones knows how to coach , Dooley didn't.

Written on Vols' search for Dooley replacement continues:

We offered to Strong, he said NO!
We offered to Gundy , he said NO!
Gruden was never interested, and those that think HART blew it with Gruden need to get your heads out of the sand Gruden allowed it to go on so it could boost his ego and make a team in the NFL come calling for him bottom line he never was even interested so screw Jon Gruden.

Now we offer it to a guy who wants to possibly be here and be successful and all that is said is , I'm not buying tickets, Dooley 2.0, we should have went after Mullin ( by the way is mullen outrecruiting FL LSU ALA GA TEXAS A&M) well he should be he is in the SEC, Spurrier and Holtz did a pretty great job recruiting in SC, and SC before Holtz was down right horrendous. I'm not saying Mullen couldn't recruit better at Tennessee but by know means is he lighting it up at Miss St. either. I havn't heard Dan Mullin contact Tennessee yet so why would I want a guy that has showed no interest, mullin is no Tressel, Petrino, Shaw, Mora jr., or other big name coach.

If its Butch Jones then lets support him, I hope this guy turns out to be just like Kelly. We gave two Big college coaches the opportunity in Gundy and Strong to come to a Big time program and yes they showed interest and they got their raises and turned us down so the heck with both of them . Wish them luck we offered so they blew it.

Butch Jones(UT) vs Brian Kelly(ND) a couple of years from now when the 4 team playoff kicks in , I LIKE IT!
Welcome Mr. Jones and become a legend in ROCKYTOP ! Alot of people will dislike you at first but once you start winning they will Luv the sheet out of you.

Written on Names to watch: Tennessee coaching search Day 18 (updated Dec. 6):

If we hire Kirby Smart that would be a DUMB move , much dumber than hiring Jones. Smart is a Saban yes man, remember NICK SABAN was a defensive cordinator back in the day in the NFL, NICK SABAN is the reason ALABAMAS defense is so good SMART is just the guy that runs the defensive plays but SABAN is the brains behind it. Smart without SABAN would be worse than DOOLEY 10 fold.

Written on Names to watch: Tennessee coaching search Day 18 (updated Dec. 6):

Cincinnati coaching tree, Mark Dantonio then he left to go to Mich St., Brian Kelly then took over with Dantonios players (only mention that because everybody seems to say that is the reason they won) Kelly then left for Notre Dame (guess he is playing in the NC game after 3 yrs because those are Weiss's kids right), Butch Jones took over and has success with cincinati also. If this is the tree we are getting a young energetic coach from then I like it because I personally would have went after Dantonio myself he has had some great seasons at MSU and it's hard to win there. This is if we hire Butch Jones he has my support, yes he lost to Derek Dooley so what, Tennessee should beat Cincinati regardless of who Volunteers coach is. I will support Butch Jones if he is the new coach.
If he is not then its on to the next guy, but Fedora and Jones proved they both can coach and win with the talent they get.

Written on Names to watch: Tennessee coaching search Day 18 (updated Dec. 6):

JIM TRESSEL would be me first and only choice, if he wasn't interested then I would move on to the bag of misfit coaches, Jones, Fedora, Anderson(UTAH ST.), Pelini, and whoever else belongs in the bag of mifits. Bring on the PROFFESSOR!

Written on Names to watch: Tennessee coaching search Day 18 (updated Dec. 6):

Kirby Smart can keep his rearend in Alabama, NO WAY!

Butch Jones at least has been a Head Coach. Taking his team to some bowl games.

If those 2 are the only choices left I take JONES.

A guy I would go after since obviously no big names are coming are way is the guy from Mich St. Mark Dantonio their defense was 4th in the country behind Ala, FSU, and BYU. Why not see if hes interested. He hasn't had that Big Time spotlight program yet , like Tennessee is.

Written on Charlie Strong: "Toughest decision I've had to make" to turn down UT:

Why is Bo Pelinis' picture on hear that guy is horrible. Badgers just put a smack down of 70 pts on the Children of the Corn.

Hire Fedora or Jones and lets just be done with this nonsense.

I believe Strong and Gundy were afraid if they come here and fail it would be back to cordinator positions for them. Tennessee is a Big job and requires relentless recruiting from all over the nation.

Another name to throw out their besides the ones that have been mentioned a thousand times is the guy from Michigan State Mark Dantonio, MSUs' Defense is ranked 4th in the NCAA right now, the guy has went 11-1 and 10-2 there and have to give him credit MSU is not a easy place to win at, just a thought. Anyways GOVOLS!!!!!

Written on UT out? Gundy, Strong negotiating to stay at their schools:

If Butch Jones is anything like Brian Kelley I'll take him, Brian Kelley just brought ND back from the stone age in just three years, maybe they weren't his players thats fine because that just tells me what kind of coach he is. So if Butch Jones is interested I say give him a shot, and if not him then go with Fedora.

Written on UT out? Gundy, Strong negotiating to stay at their schools:

in response to RememberWhen:

that's a stupid way to make the decision but whoever is hired is likely going to be sure to include a hefty buyout given the mess on Rocky Top soooooo....whoever it is had just better be the right guy or there'll be more than one moving van headed outta Knoxvegas!!

If these are my absolute only choices, I'm rolling the dice with Fedora, I already know what Gundy and Strong are going to get me and thats 3rd place in the SEC EAST at best.

Written on UT out? Gundy, Strong negotiating to stay at their schools:

Lets say we hire one of these 3 guys, Fedora, Gundy, or Strong. If buy chance because their is always a chance they don't do well, which one is going to be the hardest to FIRE and that is the one you DON"T want to hire.

Written on ESPN report says Charlie Strong is top candidate for Tennessee head football coach:

in response to GerryOP:

Oh, so now he throws out the "r" word. Are you aware that this is the 21st century?

Well bub, what's your problem with Strong? Winning record? Check! Experience as a head coach? Check! If he can recruit to L'ville can he recruit to K'town? Check! Big East Champion? Check! Experience in the SEC? Check! C'mon pal, what am I missing here?

What "facts" are you "quoting?" C'mon man? The above are facts. What you're tossing out are simply opinions, slander, and innuendo.

(I'll betcha that if we work at it we can get this whole thread shut down and all of us banned fom GVX! Wanna' go for it CMK?")

Your the one that brought it up jackazz, i was just stating facts then you called me a racist so fauk U. Telling me you would take Charlie Strong over jim tressel yeah sure OK . Im sure you would last long as a AD . What has Charlie Strong done, yes he is a good defensive cordinator but is he dominating the Bigeast NO, he is 6th in the bigeast right now in recruiting so how is he going to out recruit Fl, GA, LSU, ALA, Texas A&M ( by the way CS is NO Kevin Sumlin), and even SC. Like I said Tressel is the only one that can get us back to that level PERIOD!

Written on ESPN report says Charlie Strong is top candidate for Tennessee head football coach:

in response to gobigorange5090:

Sorry your god Gruden isnt coming. Get over it already.

Why don't you and GerryOP go buy buy your Louisville flags and drive to the sugar bowl and watch your boy Charlie Strong get beat down by the Florida Gators. Just a thought since your both huge Charlie Strong fans just saying you guys believe in this guy so im just noticing how much you guys really like Charlie. He would love to have your support. WORD!

Written on ESPN report says Charlie Strong is top candidate for Tennessee head football coach:

Jim Tressel is the only candidate that can get us back to winng SEC EAST titles, NOT Strong, Fedora, Davis, or Gundy. PERIOD!

Written on ESPN report says Charlie Strong is top candidate for Tennessee head football coach:

in response to GerryOP:

C'mon CMK, tell us what your real problem is with Strong. Go ahead ... I dare you.

Name one racist comment i've made GerryOP, you can't im stating facts. Obviously Strong is the only hire you support so whos the racist?

Written on ESPN report says Charlie Strong is top candidate for Tennessee head football coach:

in response to dorlasher:

If Strong is Hired, I will see alot of naysayers with Foot-In-Mouth Disease in three years.
What is the BIGGEST defeat UT has had in it's History? Not enough BLACK coaches. Recruits will flock to UT on image alone.

Just like they are flocking to louisville and just like they flocked to Mississippi State and just like they flocked to Vandy, and Colorado and so forth. That Black coach thing is hogwash its 2012 going on 2013 , If the whole NCAA was filled with Black head coaches they would still complain how their are not enough Black assistant coaches in the NCAA. That race card doesn't fly with me anymore WORD!

Written on ESPN report says Charlie Strong is top candidate for Tennessee head football coach:

JIM TRESSEL is the only candidate we hire that would win the SEC EAST and have us playing for SEC TITLES, all the rest you know as well as I do are just experiments, guess we just have to hope the experiment works out.

Written on ESPN report says Charlie Strong is top candidate for Tennessee head football coach:

Jim Caldwell has as many Superbowl Appearances as Tony Dungy, and Dungy had Manning for 12 yrs. Caldwell only had him once. TONY DUNGY is so OVERRATED. Yeah Gruden WON with Dungys team because after 4 NFC championships he couldn't get to the big one. Gruden finally said goodbye to Shaun King a quarterback Tony Dungy was never going to bench because he was determined to win with him when he stunk. I don't want Gruden, i wouldn't want Dungy and I certainly don't want Strong. Tony Dungy and Jon Gruden are both OVERRATED!

Written on ESPN report says Charlie Strong is top candidate for Tennessee head football coach:

Playoffs! Your talking Playoffs! What Playoffs! Are we going to get a 3rd and 4th place trophy in the SEC EAST when STRONG is our coach because thats about as high as he is going to finish, 2 7-6 seasons at Louisville , yeah he sure out coached that powerhouse league.

Written on ESPN report says Charlie Strong is top candidate for Tennessee head football coach:

Charlie Strong REALLY LMAO, We just took another 4 steps backward, nice job on the coaching search if we hire this guy, we knew back in October Dooley was gone, We should have already had our coach PERIOD!

Written on ESPN report says Charlie Strong is top candidate for Tennessee head football coach:

in response to 63vet:

'We have completely became'?? WOW!

Totally freaking agree, THIS WILL BE WORSE THAN THE DOOLEY HIRE! WHY? Because expectations will be through the roof and this guy will lead us to 2-3 years of 4th and 3rd places finishes in the SEC East and after Dooley everybody will be satisfied, WE SERIOUSLY HAVE BECOME OLE MISS< MISS STATE, He will NOT out recruit FSU and Fl, GA, SC , LSU, ALA, TEXAS A&M, or ARK. If we hire this guy it is going to be three to four more years of flipping misery.

Written on ESPN report says Charlie Strong is top candidate for Tennessee head football coach:

Charlie Strong REALLY!, that stinks, thats the best we could do, let him know how louisville does vs florida, Im sure the rest of the SEC coaches will tell us what a great hire he is, wonder why florida didn't hire him then when Urban Meyer left. STRONG IS THE WRONG CHOICE IF THEY HIRE HIM.

Written on Tennessee's search: Is it down to Mike Gundy and Charlie Strong?:

in response to westknoxrepub:

I hear Charlie Strong's a good coach. . .two 7-6 Seasons in the Big East and no outright titles. . .I hear Charlie Strong's a good recruiter. . .currently he has the 6th ranked class in the Big East. . .please tell me why we should hire Charlie Strong?

If he was really good, the B1G, Big12, or PAC12 school would have picked him up 2 years ago. HART is not hiring STRONG I think that would seal his fate in Knoxville.

Written on Tennessee's search: Is it down to Mike Gundy and Charlie Strong?:

Midwestern Coaches as of lately seem to do pretty good in the SEC, MILES, SABAN, MEYER,

Why not go get Dantonio from MICH St. , his defense was ranked 4th this year and that Pat Bertuzzi his defensive cordinator pretty dam good, its not like GA blew them out in that bowl game last year matter of fact I believe MICH ST won that game. Ill take a B1G coach from a big school knowing he will have SEC talent over FEDORA, or STRONG. MICH ST. is very hard to win at . Just throwing it out there, all these names of these coaches from the Bigeast/ACC combination conference. If he brought Bertuzzi with him , Ill take a running back with Bells' caliber anyday.

Written on Tennessee's search: Is it down to Mike Gundy and Charlie Strong?:

BRING ON THE PROFFESSOR!!!!!!! JIM TRESSEL or BUST!

Written on Tennessee's search: Is it down to Mike Gundy and Charlie Strong?:

I hoping HART is using these 2 coaches as a smokescreen for the JIM TRESSEL announcement but probably not.

Written on Tennessee's search: Is it down to Mike Gundy and Charlie Strong?:

By the way if Charlie Strong was so good then why hasnt he landed a headcoaching job at a top school anywhere wether it be B1G , PAC, Big12, seemed like if he was that good somebody would have picked him up by now besides Conference USA/Bigeast/ACC Louisville.

Written on Tennessee's search: Is it down to Mike Gundy and Charlie Strong?:

GUNDY and STRONG this is what Tennessee footballs choices are? Wake me when its over, Strong is defensive guy but would probably make us irrelevant offensively, GUNDY offensive guy but would make us irrelevant defensively, so pick your poison, pay them both 3 million a year and looks like we could compete.

Don't hire JIM TRESSEL; or even see if hes' interested WHATEVER!

Ill take GUNDY over STRONG.

I'll go with the snake bitten COWBOY in GUNDY if these are the choices because of agent baloney. DO NOT WANT STRONG OR FISHER.

Written on Tennessee's coach search turns to Oklahoma State's Mike Gundy :

Peyton Manning will not coach college at Tennessee in a million years why?

Because if he fails he is not going to ruin his legacy at UT.
Second if Peyton Manning does anything it would be owning an NFL franchise
Third you Peyton Manning is going to fly around the country recruiting and dealing with all the babysitting that goes on with 18-22 yr old kids , I think not.
Peyton will be a part owner with Eli and groom there kids to be just like them.
Peyton coaching college don't see that happening but he will be one heck of a smoke screen in years to come for the Tennessee athletic department.

"Last I looked MICHIGANS record vs the SEC in there history is 27-9-5."

UM is 0-1 against UT. And what a romp that was.

Walt

UT '81

Yep and sweet it was, but thats not the point because I remember when we got our butts kicked vs Nebraska twice anyways this was about JIM TRESSELS ability to coach and he is the BEST AVAILABLE. By the way the TEAM we beat Michigan with way underachieved, WITTEN, STALLWORTH, and the list goes on, Michigan was 8-4 that year to our 10-2 we had better beaten them. Sad thing was we lost to LSU and their back up quarterback that was so frustrating to watch us loose that one. Anyways GOVOLS!! and bring on the professor.

Written on Tennessee's coach search turns to Oklahoma State's Mike Gundy :

JIM TRESSEL .828 winning percentage in the B1G with B1G talent. 1-2 vs SEC in BCS games , how many BCS games have we been to in the last 10 freaking years 0000000

NICK SABAN .585 Winning percentage at MICHIGAN STATE UNIVERSITY also in the B1G
But was hired by LSU and BAMA and has won with SEC TALENT get the picture.

Its not what conference your in that makes the coach its winning the Conference on a Yearly basis in which Tresseel did.

Tressel was 9-1 vs MICHIGAN

Last I looked MICHIGANS record vs the SEC in there history is 27-9-5.

Point is TRESSEL would outcoach the doors off SABAN< MILES<MUSCHAMP<SPURRIER<RICHT , Tressel would dominate these guys.

I'll take my one year of sitting out a bowl game under tressel and knowing my next 8 yrs are going to be STELLAR. Than going with your choices of Strong, Mullin, Fedora, Gundy, Golden these guys will finish at best 3rd in the SEC EAST with a shot a conference championship probably once if each stayed here 8 yrs. These guys have WON NOTHING as head coaches.

Oh forgot JIMBOB Fisher also.

Written on Tennessee's coach search turns to Oklahoma State's Mike Gundy :

BEST COACHES AVAILABLE

1. JIM TRESSEL
Good points a proven winner and would only excel with coaching SEC TALENT.
Will not bail and stay for the duration of his coaching existence due to the fact he has already coached at his dream job which was OSU and has no interest in the NFL.

2. Bobby Petrino, Good points is he is a good coach and proved he can win within the conference.
Only problem I have with Petrino is when he blazed on the Falcons that is a huge RED FLAG, when would he decide to just say i don't feel like coaching here anymore and BLAZE!

Those 2 coaches are the BEST AVAILABLE.

TENNESSEEs' new coach will be JIM TRESSEL and don't be suprised when it is announced. This delay to me is just getting all the NCAA red tape out of the way. Brighter days Ahead. GO VOLS!

Tressel= couldn't beat an SEC team. Yes please hire him.

SABAN winng percetage at Michigan State University

Tressel at OSU .828

Then why did LSU and Bama Hire Saban?

Your point is MUTE!

Written on New York City could be nexus of Tennessee's coaching search for next few days :

I'm watching Gary Patterson compete with Ok. with far less talent.Why is his name not on the list ?

Hes not on the list because he is going to TEXAS once mack brown is ran out. TEXAS is his destination job. Don't want Patterson he will run after a couple of years once the TEXAS job opens
.

Written on As Jon Gruden drama ends, focus shifts to other Tennessee candidates :

That announcment I'm hoping is none other than JIM TRESSEL.

I'll still support whoever else it is and hope that he wins, because i'm definetly tired of losing.

Written on As Jon Gruden drama ends, focus shifts to other Tennessee candidates :

Sabans winning percentage at MSU .585, yet at LSU he won, at Ala he won goes to prove those that have told me Tressel couldn't beat LSU and Florida.
Then why did they hire SABAN!

Tressel would be one year of game and bowl suspensions which I think will be reduced considering he is doing everything right to get back in. This is the guy HART needs to get. PERIOD!

Written on As Jon Gruden drama ends, focus shifts to other Tennessee candidates :

Come on JIM TRESSEL, one thing about Tressel , he is not going to bolt for the NFL , he already had his dream job which was OSU, he wants to go down as one of thegreatest ncaa coaches ever. And believe me if he comes to Tennessee and WINS for the next 10 yrs. He will have been the only coach to take 2 of the Top ten all-time winningest programs in NCAA history to NC games and beat the teams biggest rivals on a consistent basis. If he has SEC TALENT he will smoke Saban, Muschamp , and Miles. Remember he played with B1G talent at OSU. When people say he couldn't beat LSU and Florida so why would we want him is hypocritical, because he didn't play them with SEC talent, especially when all we hear about is how SEC talent is the best. So you give JIM TRESSEL SEC TALENT he will SMOKE the doors off Saban, Miles, Spurrier, Muschamp, Tressels winning percentage at OSU was .828 what was Sabans at Mich St. Sure as heck wasn't .828. So if Saban can win with SEC talent how can Tressel NOT! JIM TRESSEL would rule the SEC EAST and get us back to playing for conference titles. If Saban can do it, Tressel can certainly do it. I'd take Tressel over Saban anyday given the same level of talent.

Why didn't they offer the AD job to Phil Fulmer, I think he would have gladly took it.

Written on As Jon Gruden drama ends, focus shifts to other Tennessee candidates :

Jim Tressel has done everything he needs to do to get into coaching again. The COLTS job was a none paying job he took. He can coach and only has to sit out the first 5 games and a Bowl game the first year. He is by far the best candidate out there. And GUESS WHAT he is AVAILABLE :)

Written on As Jon Gruden drama ends, focus shifts to other Tennessee candidates :

Somebody honestly answer this question . If HART is out to Sabotage us WHY? And why havn't we fired him then? Im always busy so don't know any ins or outs when it come to the AD department.
