    If I actually tune in to MNF and I don't hear this I will hunt you down for getting my hopes up.

    0% chance he would actually announce it on MNF.

    But sources still act like it is more or less a done deal. Hart (the new AD that took over last year) may be holding things up. It is either a conflict between boosters and Hart or a lot of smokescreens to give Hart full credit for the hire.

    Ugh gawd some of you still want Gruden.

    I just don't get it. .500 NFL coach that has never had to recruit or anything in college? Recruiting is probably 60% of the job.

    I'd rather have Gruden in Nashville coaching the Titans.


    I'll still support the guy if UT hires him which is a nice change considering I hated the last two coaches.

    Well given your typical posts I am not surprised that you think it would be difficult for Gruden to recruit.

    One of the most laughable things I've read today so thanks for that.

    Your typical posts are mindless attacks and semi points without facts to back them up so good to know the trend continues outside taboo.

    Still don't think he is coming to UT but why are you so confident he could recruit here?

    How are you so confident that 18-21 year olds are going to understand Gruden's schemes which are notoriously complex to the point that many NFL players had trouble with them.

    Gruden is not a long term solution in Knoxville, he is a 4 to 5 year patch until he gets the NFL itch again.


    Seriously, stay off VolNation

    There are no long term solutions in collegiate coaching anymore.
