    So I been over at vol nation and the gruden rumors are way outta control over there last I heard it was 8years 50mil with Dooley to be fired Monday and gruden to announce on mnf. I personally would love to see this happen but I'm not believing any of it until I hear it from the mouths of all parties involved. What's y'all's take on the situation? These people claim to be in the know that are posting these exact salary numbers. Also Dooley's stats are horrendous so I think either way he is gone some time in the near future.

    That would be awesome, but there's a 0% chance the deal would be 8 years and 0% chance that he would announce it on MNF.

    I heard Dooley is under a 6 year contract. If true, that's truly pathetic. What kind of idiot gives an unproven guy more than a 3 year deal?

    Total clowns, I swear.

    He is. Hamilton really screwed us with the Dooley deal. His buyout is also 5mil which is unheard of for an unproven guy. It was like Dooley knew he was gonna suck and covered his ass very well. Also there are rumors on MrSEC that Dooley approached the school last year to buy him out and he would leave, which would somewhat make since of why all the coaches left/let go. There is a press con from yesterday where Dooley is asked about that and he makes a joke out of it, ratings that he would be a real dumba$$ to do something like that, but after that he seems very nervous the rest of the conference like he knows whats up lol. All these rumors have me excited but again still very couscous of the vols future.

    Yeah... Munchak is announcing his resignation after the Colts game and Lane Kiffin was seen touring a 2.5 Million Dollar Mansion in Brentwood.

    Vols fans need to lay off the meth.

    I need to remind all Vols fans of something very important.. in regards to all of the delusional comments about a new coaching staff.

    Gruden has definetly been contacted.

    I know someone who knows a guy who knows Haslem (I know, shaky)

    But he has basically been saying that they really did show Gruden the 33.5 mil or whatever the number is.

    What people (like Erika) don't understand is.. Tennessee has one of the best facilities in the country, one of the largest fan bases in the country, and most importantly... a stupid amount of donor money.

    10 years of being down makes people forget the 80 we weren't.

    Also, people act like Gruden's ties to Knoxville are imaginary, but they really aren't. He tought a camp there over the summer for god's sake.

    Long story short: Haslem will take care of the money if Hart will pull the trigger. Both of those are going to happen. It just depends if Gruden is interested. There is plenty of reason to believe he is; starting with the check Haslem will cash for him.

    I have contacted all the people I know that might know something and they are hearing the same rumors. The only certainty to me about UT is that I will be at the Troy game.

    LOLOLOL MORE delusions! Keep telling yourself that you are an important program. You aren't!

    I remember when the Vuls said that they were bringing in Bobby Knight to replace Bruce Pearl and that Bobby Knight was seen at knoxville golf course with the AD and that the deal was "All but done!"

    HAHAHAAHAHAHAHAAH if you believe any of this... you need to go check yourself into a mental asylum.

    You must be under 16 years old. Otherwise you might know that UT won a championship in '98.

    Aside from that, every "delusion" I mentioned is basically a fact.

    -"The 145,000-square foot building includes an amphitheater-style team room, coaches offices, position meeting rooms, a dining hall, players' lounge, a 7,000-square foot locker room, a 22,000-square foot, multi-level weight room as well as a new training room and hydrotherapy area."

    http://www.utsports.com/facilities/football_training_center.html

    Because teams that don't matter have those.

    - No other school of relevance can say that they have the support of their entire state. Regardless of where you live in your SEC sucks fantasy land, Vandy doesn't begin to compete, and they have the second most fans. Ever been to a Vandy UT game? It is mostly Orange.

    - How do you think they paid for that facility? The students didn't pay for it I assure you.

    Jimmy Haslam (billionare owner of Browns) leads the charge in AD donations. Money isn't a problem I assure you.


    But I guess if you were born 5 years ago (or you're an idiot) this is hard to imagine; but these are simply facts. Hard to have delusions when these aren't even opinions.

    But on the Basketball note... I am all over UT athletics, and I don't remember that rumor.

    In fact, from the day Pearl was fired everyone pretty much knew it was Martin.

    I mean, I can go start a rumor that says John Madden is coming back into coaching, that doesn't mean there is anything to it.
