Default Gruden offered by Arkansas

LOL...has UT been scooped by Arkansas? I guess this will help shed light on whether he is interested in the college game.

http://www.todaysthv.com/news/articl...Razorbacks-job

I heard it on local sports talk radio and I thought it was BS that Arkansas had made the offer...maybe not

I am sure that he won't take it, but it is interesting and IMO a better environment to go into than at UT.

Arky has more money to throw at their next HC than Tennessee does at this moment.

Tennessee's athletics budget has had a 'McGee' pulled on them. Their bottom line is gushing red.

IT will be an interesting next few weeks. I wonder how long the universities will allow him to string them along before making a decision. Personally, I think that Arkansas is the easier job...they have more in state talent and are surrouned by several states that have tons of Division 1 talent.

I don't understand the obsession with Jon Gruden...

He has a career regular season winning % of .540 and hasn't been on a college coaching staff since 1991. Why is everyone craving this guy?

Difference is- SOS had already proven he could win at the college level.

Oh, and the argument about Gruden's NFL record can't be held against him and how that compares to Spurrier's NFL record might hold true if Gruden had ONLY coached under Al Davis...but he also coached the Bucs. So while Gruden's owner being Al Davis cancels out Spurrier's owner being Dan Snyder (both are / were owners that meddle far too much in the affairs of the team, reducing the ability of the coach to be successful) Gruden will always have that time in Tampa Bay that doesnt qualify as such.

Tony Dungy left him a pretty good team in Tampa. You would think he would be a good college coach though, just because of the salesmanship factor.

Huge gamble, especially for UT who apparently has no idea what they want from a head coach. They hire a name/personality with Kiffin and got screwed, went conservative with Dooley and are defensively horrific, and now ____.

What UT should do is throw major cash at Franklin.

I've always thought he was too smart if that makes any sense. Like his system is too complex and he almost out thinks himself. Just the way he's always come across to me.

There is a very good chance Gruden will be the next Tennessee HFC.

He has no interest in Arkansas.
