Nearly everything stated here is incorrect. Respectfully.

The rumors of this thread and about this thread actually exceed the rumors in this thread

And that is difficult to do

Strong hasn't been pasted over twice by florida!
FYI Bruin:

Strong interviewed for head coaching jobs at:

Cal
East Carolina
Kansas
Minnesota
Vanderbilt
considered by UK prior to the hiring of Brooks.

All passed on him.

Problem is he is not a young coach.

When you look around the college football landscape, which team do you think most closely mirrors the football teachings of General Neyland?
When I think of General Neyland I think of defense.

Alabama

Some people are talking about making a hire quickly so that the new coach can get out on the recruiting trail. Well the dead period begins on 12/17/12 and ends on 1/3/13! If UT hired a coach this week, the new coach would have at most 10-11 days to recruit. You would have to throw into the mix that the new coach would have to assemble his staff which isn't an easy task which would cut into recruiting time.

We only have to look to Alabama to see that even if you bring a coach in January, a university can have a top 5 recruiting class! Tennessee must keep its eye on the prize and if that requires having to wait until late December to "hire" a head coach then that is what must be done!!! It should also be kept in mind that one candidate has some rather large contractual issues with his current employer and possibly his prior employer!

These things take time! Neither Strong nor Gundy is "the guy"!!!!
The only issue with waiting is that if you don't have anybody before then - well the remaining choices might not be that attractive. I think you could have a private agreement and not make it public until a later date but to have nothing until the later date would seem a bit risky. jmo.

I agree the time muschamp was hired is iffy when stating a case for strong but it should be noted he wasn't at florida at time like most posters are claiming.

Is there even a glimmer of hope that Gruden is still an option, or is the thread just message board daydreaming?
Yes to both
