THIS THIS THIS THIS THIS
omg, this Tennessee thing is PRICELESS!!!  Student protests, but allegedly Schiano already signed a contract, so for UT to back out, they'd have to pay his buyout, lol
Hilarious!!!!!  All because the guy isn't Jon Gruden!!!!
Tennessee's job stinks at this point and this was the best they could do.  Period.

I'm sorry, but I've been buried under an avalanche of BS on the SEC board with the baby Jesus incarnate Jon Gruden becoming UT's coach......close sources....guys you trust say it's a done deal.....all of that crap.....and when it's not him, there's outrage.

DUH!

Where was the outrage when tOSU signed Schiano as DC?  Hmmph.  None.  Is UT more pious than tOSU?  You want to make that claim?  

Excuse me while I bask in the glory of the absolute shyt show that is UT football right now.  Public.  Front-page.  Crap-fest.

Here's hoping that Schiano is shell shocked enough to take his head off a swivel, and refocus on being OSU's DC long term. 

I'm going to have a nice chuckle, when they wind up hiring Bobby Petrino.

who in hell would want to go to UT now?  the DC of Montana State's brother's girlfriend's pen pal from the west indes?  
Lane Kiffen..?
In all seriousness he's probably the only immediately hireable viable candidate that wouldn't give a decent crap about stepping into a storm, being a bit of a crazy himself. 
And oddly there's a growing demand to hire Kiffin back anyway.

Hell, I'd find out if Jon Gruden has a brother and hire him, to quell the mob.  It'll confuse them long enough to get through this fiasco....

@Honestbuckeye , i don't disagree now that the dust is settling.... 

UT is at a crossroad they've seen before, but not been parked in demanding 'something' else get ran over... the hire HAD TO BE something ground shaking, else they would slide completely off the map... and, i think they just did. 

i have a buddy- a good friend, actually... retired navy corpsman and a great guy.. he woke up maybe two weeks ago now seriously not knowing where he was or who his wife of ten years laying beside him was.. he took off running across the golf course naked as the day he was born until the popo showed up and lassoed his ass.  he has some sort of white crap on his brain the scans picked up, and apparently he's in and out of different states now- from full cohesion to absolute panic, to almost drunk acting.... 

i hope that's what's happening to me right now.  it would make all of this make sense on some level.  right now, though.....

Heard from a few other people they've also heard rumblings about this behind the scenes. Eh, I don't think Pep is ready to be a head cfb coach of a P5 team.

you guys can believe what you want to believe, but nobody wants him because of his connection to penn state and during a period when players were play things, plain and simple.  some people still put principle above all... and i respect that.  
Drew, I'm genuinely interested in your opinion on this.  I think it offers deeper insight into what the Vol fanbase is thinking as well.
Could you please give some details regarding the bolded statement?

Last I checked there's still no asterisk in the official record books.
But no, no matter how bad Ty wishes TG actually told a player to lay on the ball that it absolutely 100% false.
Reffing Head Official Bill Carollo said the refs messed up and Wisconsin should have received another play.
Larry Scott is taking "additional sanctions against officials" for their failure to properly administer the end of game situation and act with appropriate urgency on the game's final play."
Sounds pretty asterisk~esk to me.

i'll try, @WhiskeyM ... 

understand i'm speaking from my perspective of others... others being the UT fanbase.  Other's don't follow this game like we do, and they really don't know a lot about PSU other than what they've been told (it's not like they sought out information for themselves).  

there was a fire at PSU, and Schiano was close enough to smell like smoke.  pretty much that simple.  

if you couple that with mob mentality- which is looking for a reason to dismiss or stop a hire when nothing is really known about the guy except he smells like smoke- they have just justified their revolt.  and that is what it is.  senseless, without reason or accountability, taking action from those who are seeking fame in the middle of chaos by claiming to be a 'source'- THE DAY AFTER the worst season EVER for UT (8 losses... a first).... and NOT making good on "ground shaking" as was claimed... 

the real issue here is how it was handled.  a few days of rumors- followed by a press release expressing official interest- many things could have been gleaned.  but instead, while tempers are still red hot in a state that has nothing but UT football and coming off the worst season ever ONE DAY REMOVED- it was just plain stupid.  

it may seem to you my response diverted away from your question... they needed an excuse, and some son of a bitch offered them one in the vane of something that anyone affiliated with this game wants closure and distance from.... where there is little to no reason of concern for anything involving that circumstance that rates it being yanked out of the ground and re-hashed.  

i've fluidly moved in this thread between personal opinion and trying to represent that of a fan base i am a part of.  i'm finding that increasingly difficult.  it's all bull shit.  the hire (handling) was bull shit... if Haslam went off the reservation, that's bull shit... the fanbase acting the way they have is bull shit... the candidate himself, however accomplished, is less than what the fan base expected and because of the man himself (currie) promising 'ground shaking' and then.... is bull shit... 

all told, it's truly something to watch.. as i said elsewhere, in ten years this will still be unbelievable... i don't know whether to be happy i'm witnessing it real time, or, if it has afforded me an opportunity to give a precise moment i was no longer a UT fan... 

clift notes:  there is no innocent party here except for Schiano (who is the bad guy?)... the man thought he was getting a good gig... everyone else- ALL OF THEM... are to blame and none of them have done the right thing since- from the UT admin to the fan base to the reporters involved in fanning the flames.... it's astounding and actually painful for me to watch.

So Chris Low is reporting that what was signed between Tennessee and Schiano was a "Memorandum of Understanding" and NOT an actual coaching contract.
