Did you really just compare a Super Bowl ring to a state championship? The difference in your guy and Gruden is Gruden won at the highest level. Of course, hus SB Ring doesn't mean he would win in college, but recruits would give UT more consideration as they are going to listen to a guy with that kind of jewelry. Recruits could care less if you have a high school ring.

Some NFL teams like Philly or Dallas will come after Gruden too. But, his MNF gig is very sweet with little pressure and less time commitment.
I don't think anyone thinks Dabo is real football coach. Everyone, including Clemson deep down, know he's a good recruiter but if Morris was gone and he was in control of the offense things might not be going too great.

These Vols fans are funny. Salivating over a guy like Gruden, who is going to build a "recruiting powerhouse" at UTK, and is going to dominate the conference.

I'll believe it when I see it. He's a name and a brand, sure. But as a coach, he left a HELL of a lot to be desired. His Tampa teams were absolute quagmires at QB. His system left many a player totally rattled, and unable to compete. The defense (Monte Kiffin, who y'all already tried) was what made those TB teams any good. When Gruden was running the show (after he had Rich McKay forced out of the GM chair), those Bucs teams were average.

To top it all off, that your university is donating money to the athletic department in such large quantities is positively shameful. The AD should exist to enrich and endow the university, not the other way around.

Hire Gruden. But I don't think it's going to be the home-run success that UTK fans are envisioning.

Well it would be a coup of a hire, but that doesn't mean it would translate into on the field success.

He's too old now anyway, but I wonder what his buyout is for leaving, if anything. Not like duke is in a real strong negotiating position.

Default Re: Gruden offered by Arkansas

Gruden is there for the taking but it is the AD that MAY want someone else. He is getting alot of pressure from boosters to make the gruden hire. He wants a proven college coach and knows that chucky is a high risk high reward hire. If he gets pushed to hard on this he will walk.. Heard it from 2 people in the FSU ranks where Hart was at previously and the same thing just posted on Mr.Sec. I dont know who Hart may want but if it is anyone other than chucky the vol fans are going to run him out of town faster than kiffykins bolted. I said previously he has mismanaged this and if chucky was who he wanted it should have been a done deal the moment Dooley was let go. There was nothing to stop him from talking to grudens agent or a 3rd party. Something else is going on or it would be a fact already. It will probably still happen but something is holding it up???

Us fear the Vols...UcheaT?/? Not in a number of years. The only names that may get some angst from USC fans are Petrino (not going to happen) & Saban (never going to happen).

Other than that, you can bring in whomever you want in Rocky Top...but you're still looking up to USC, Georgia & Florida in the SEC East.

Good luck with Vandy in the battle for 4th place in the East!

I am wondering if this Gruden talk is just smoke that Hart is allowing to be up so he can do his search and not have anyone trace what he really is doing.

Our VQ reporter (very reliable usually) said that while the Gruden interest/pursuit is real that our AD has also has had discussions with Jimbo Fisher, Bob Stoops and Charlie Strong and that they are all interested.

I have to admit that as of this point you all have certainly passed us.

But depending on who we hire and who you replace Spurrier with, things could be very different in a few years.

I think that Gruden would make a huge splash in getting in top recruits. Now, would he be able to put together a top notch staff, resist the urge to bolt to the NFL or back to the booth, and put up with boosters and all that goes with being a college coach?
As for those who say he wasn't really that good of an NFL coach, Saban and Spurrier didn't exactly set the world on fire in the pros and they've done just fine.

LOL why wouldn't he? It is a better program in every fashion except academically.

His agent has already been working the back channels trying to express interest in TN.
