If this mornings rumors are true, Tennessee might need some cheese fries.

These kind of cryptic posts are starting to anger me.

 

Please say what the rumor is, or post a link.

They're well past the point of needing any specific one.

My brother texted me that Tennessee fired their AD, but I'm not seeing that online. Anyone heard anything?

If the Tennessee fans got Schiano out in a matter of days, I'm sure they can do the same with AD Currie. At this point the fans shouldn't have to protest for this, his a$$ should be gone for the bang up job he's done lately.

At this point, I think Tennessee fans would approve of Butch Jones being offered the Head Coaching position.

 

There is a hilarious quote over there at VolNation in the Bo Pelini thread:
 

Quote

A power 5 school will hire Pelini and he will win there and his players will crawl across broken glass for him to do it. 

He’s a dick. No doubt. But he could be OUR dick...

Imagine if schiano went on to be HC at a group of 5 and went undefeated. That would be a kick to the face for tennessee. 

Why hasn’t Kevin Wilson’s name been mentioned great offensive mind.

Tennessee has the last laugh when on Saturday Frost announces he is taking Vols job and we introduce Butch Davis.

 

Yes, I knocked on wood before posting this.

I love Mike Leach as a coach and I think he's great for college football. But I don't understand this choice.

 

First, Leach is a guy that likes left alone. He doesn't want admins and boosters and all of those people bothering him. Currie, the AD at Tennessee, has never been coach friendly. He ran off Frank Martin, another coach that can get a little agitated at those things. We've seen a lot of issues arise this week at Tennessee and I'm not sure Mike Leach is going to an environment that best suits him.

 

Second, Mike Leach is a fantastic program builder and he knows how to sustain it. But for all his experience, we don't really know how well he scales to a more prestigious program. He's always been at schools that weren't "football schools" where winning a lot of games and going to good bowls was more a bonus than expectation. In 16 years at Texas Tech and Washington State, he has (1) double digit win season (could be 2 this year). Is that exactly what Tennessee wants? We all know first hand that simply winning 9 games at a school like that doesn't necessarily mean you win more at a bigger school.

 

I guess I don't see the fit.

Leach should quit his job and start a TV show where he just talks about whatever's on his mind and sometimes fields viewer questions.

I don't want him to go to Tennessee. I like cheering for him at WSU. I can't cheer for Tennessee. I don't hate them, but I don't like them.

The person spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because neither side intended to make the meeting public. The meeting was in Los Angeles, and Leach was scheduled to fly back to Pullman, Washington. No deal was finalized.

The next sound you hear will be WSU offering Leach a raise and/or extension. Tennessee's private jet is bringing an especially joyous holiday season to any coach it visits.

 

Gotta love Leach's style:

We could end up being a contributing factor by stealing Moos away. Tennessee probably won't even send a thank you card.

Lincoln Riley’s Mike Leach wrong number story:

My first or second year as an assistant at Tech, I was doing some work in Coach Leach’s office when his cell phone rang.

He picked it up and said, “Hey, how’s it going?” And then he listened for a second and asked, “Where ya calling from?”

He kept talking on the phone and I eventually sort of tuned out. Now, a short phone conversation for Coach Leach is an hour. So he was talking about this and that, and I was kind of hunkered down working on my own stuff. At some point, the call got dropped. They must have lost reception. Coach said, “Can you hear me? Are you there?”

Then he closed his old-school flip phone, swung it back open and redialed. He said, “Hey, sorry I lost you.” And then they resumed their conversation for another 30 minutes or so before Coach finally hung up.

After he was done, we started talking and I said, “Hey Coach, who was that on the phone?”

And he said, “Oh, they had the wrong number.”

It is most definitely a Currie problem.. He should've done a little better job vetting his coach to be and he would've avoided the backlash and probably still have a job...

 

Yeah the fans at Tennessee are an issue too but you gotta know your fan base.. Moos knows his fan base and he's trying to keep us happy by saying the right things and going after a coach that is a genuine fit for Nebraska. Currie clearly didn't

Who knows at this point. Tennessee is at that point where you can just make news up and the guy next to you goes, "that was yesterday".

How's he supposed to know the fans would throw a temper tantrum and drag an innocent guy's reputation through the mud?

 

Nobody is good enough for their fans and that's the problem. Schiano isn't the only guy they've protested.

Looking through some threads at volnation I've learned that they have a booster named Haslam and is getting blamed for a lot of the chaos. Family owns Pilot gas stations but Warren Buffet buying large interest. One brother is governor? Some connection to Cleveland Browns. Too lazy to do the research but funny that some were going to boycott Pilot stores.

LOL - I saw one poster say they were only going to Flying-J if he needed to take a dump, and didnt plan on flushing afterwards.
