My opinion is that all this mess in Knoxville over the last few years has been an elaborate scheme by Alabama to destroy the athletic department from the inside out. Kirby Smart is the last piece of the puzzle.
If you believe some Tennessee people, Hart didn't want Gruden. Hart's people were leaking Gruden wasn't interested while big boosters were putting out information that Gruden was interested under the right circumstances.
Now he is screwing it up because he slow played Strong, who was considered the floor for a new hire, while trying to get Gundy from OSU.
You Tennessee fans can go ahead and remove those big six sigs. A true and proper leader of a program would have their house in order before firing a coach.
We got our search wrapped up in 2 1/2 days. And our 3x BCS game level coach reached out to us. Good luck w/ the coordinators.
Are there people who actually think Tennessee was offering Charlie Strong 5 million dollars a year, or whatever that ridiculous number was?
