Yahoo is reporting Charlie Strong will spurn UT & stay at Louisvile.
I knew they would somehow screw this up..
How do their fans not see red flags? They fired their guy before the others, they knew he was gone even berfore that. All the others made their hires today, including some who were "rumored" to be involved in their search.
Right or wrong, Strong was way down their list of candiates. Personally, I think he's the best realistic guy for them, but they didn't see it that way. So, one must conclude that they've once again gotten down to their 5th, 6th, 7th choice, even after they've said they WILL NOT let money be an issue and they've said they're in a better position than they were when Dooley first started.
UT is a good job historically and will eventually be one again. However, right now people just don't want that job. Three searches in a row now where they've had to "settle" for a guy their fans didn't want and their admin didn't think they'd have to even contact.
Hell, thats assuming they can get a backup to their backups. If Strong turned them down, Gundy and Fedora may have as well. Where does that leave them?
I'm gonna say its Butch Davis. WAY WAY DOWN their list, but a fantastic evaluator of talent and a decent gameday coach. Assembled the greatest college roster of all time "talent wise" and that was when Miami was going through probation. He's STILL getting his players drafted from UNC. Remember all that defensive talent they loaded up on?
Davis, like Strong, would increase their talent level on defense and get them back to being a top dog roster wise. Right now they are in the bottom half of the conference, regardless of the number of scholly players being deeper now. Don't do no good when they can't play. Thats something Dooley didn't grasp apparently. The UT fans all called him a "great" recruiter.. lol
The article you linked says nothing of the sort, and is from ESPN, not Yahoo...
Actually the very first line of the article mirrors what he said and it attributes the source as being reported by yahoo sports.... but hell... why read it when you can just act like you did and criticize someone for bringing info to the board.
Beatings will continue until morale improves
This is awesome if true.
I assume this is the Yahoo article being referenced by ESPN. It is based on sources at Louisville.
From Yahoo! Sports: Despite reports that Charlie Strong is a leading candidate to land Tennessee's coaching job, Louisville hasn't given up hope of keeping him.
Goons belong in hockey.
Winningest Program in College Football since 1990!
"Who was your source? Church mice in here....." - Coach Muschamp
First line of the article....Louisville coach Charlie Strong is likely to stay with the Cardinals, according to a report from Yahoo! Sports.
The new coach at UcheaT better be able to recruit nationally, even if they sign the top 25 players in Tn every year they will not be competitive in the SEC.
if they cant land fedora their screwed
i would gladly take petrino right now if im makin the calls
