    So does anybody else browse volnation? Has it crashed because I can't get it to come up on my computer, phone, or tapatalk? And I also have been saying that all these coaches would turn UT down because my theory Is still gruden. Laugh if you want but I think it's still him just waiting for his last tb payment. I know ESPN and everybody says no way and he is going to raiders but I think h will be a UT. If not then it will be fedora or some other loser. Lol Tennessee football is screwed if no gruden! Once again laugh all you want but if my theory is right I will be laughing my ASS off, If not I will move to Canada and watch football there cause my vols and titans both suck!

    There's a lot of coaches getting new contracts with their current teams because of this.

    Patrino is starting to look better and better.

    I'm not really a huge UT fan, but I cannot believe Strong passed to stay at Louisville.

    And Petrino is who I would've targeted all along. Who cares that he had an affair? Thats between he and his wife. And at the end of the day its about winning.

    Looking like Vol Nation is about to see yet another ho-hum hire.

    Petrino is not even on the radar.

    Fedora is next.

    Maybe Dabo Swinney and Dana Holgorsen.

    I can. UL will pay him whatever he asks for. They know he's the most wanted coach in college football. They will ink him up and Charlie has talked about how thankful he is for Louisville finally giving him a chance and he's big on loyalty. They spent way too much money on Cardinal Strong billboards around town to have him leave :p

    Guys, it is Gruden. Expect the deal later this month. Everything else is smokescreen and leverage for negotiations.

    Look up the Urban Meyer leaving Florida for ESPN then jumping to Ohio State or Saban leaving the Dolphins to coach Bama. Saban flat out said he would not be coaching for Bama days before announcing he was leaving the Fins to coach the Tide.

    optimism is a good quality, but UT offers him no security. ESPN does. UT can suck for 2-3 years, and he'll be out on the streets again.. only with a worse coaching reputation.

    SEC is brutal. Can understand why the Louisville coach wanted to stay. Nobody wants to start out as a punching bag in the most dominating conference in football, when you can be a BCS contender and not be forced to play most of the good teams in the NCAA every year.

    Why would they kick gruden to the streets after 2-3 years? He's not a stop gap coach..

    Bama and GA used to suck nuts.. just like the NFL.. teams go up and down.. not sure why people act like UT will never improve.
