I'm still shocked they let Jones go just one year after winning the champions of life.  No new coach will feel confident with that lack of job security....

They should just keep Hoke. 

He was awesome at Ball State. Or something.

the Vols should open up fort knox and hire Urban away from the Big Ten where he's not appreciated

I think they should just hire Peyton Manning as their new HC...

My sources tell me Big Vol money going all in on Frost
A recent study has found that women who carry a little extra weight live longer than men who mention it

money can't buy home and family

but, it doesn't suck

perhaps mom and pop would be willing to move to Knoxville to be close to the grandkids?????

would the booster's of substance be willing to put Tom Osborne on staff with his own private fishing spot?

Nebraska can offer home, but if Florida wants Frost as much as UT, who wins out on that one?

Home is priceless. You could offer the moon to a guy like Paul Chryst, for example, and he ain't coming. He's home.

Indeed.  I remember Charlie McBride telling me that "Tom Osborne wouldn't move across the street for millions of dollars."

good question
I'd say Florida, but I'm not Frost and don't know what he's thinking

It'd be most meaningful to Frost to win at Nebraska, obviously, but he's succeeding at Central Florida....not Central Michigan or Middle Tennessee.  He's able to win where he's at because there's plenty of talent where he's at (even getting the leftovers).  Winning at UNL won't be easy.  While they're in the "right" division of the B10, it's still the B10 - not UNL, OU, and the 6 dwarves like it used to be back in the day.

It's so sad - on the SEC board, nearly every post about this mentions Gruden.  They just can't help themselves.  


With Gruden, I'm guessing the blueprint Vols are going for is a Jim Harbaugh type of hire, but it only works on paper.

It's a worse situation than whether Gruden will go to Tennessee - it's a matter of whether Gruden will even be a good coach. When was the last time he recruited High School kids? When's the last time beat writers took him to the woodshed? Will his NFL strategies from 10 years ago even work now?

Gruden is now a completely different person than when he was a coach. He's relaxed, comfortable, and not the relentlessly obsessive personality he used to be. And will Gruden 100% go back to that to coach again?

edit: probably should've read the all the comments first to realize most echo my doubts of Gruden as well.

I agree, but I can also say the same thing about Florida and Tennessee
yes, there's plenty of talent in Florida and Tennessee, but even with top notch talent, winning won't be easy
