What if Bret Bielama was hired at TN?

Now with both coaches on the hot seat, what if we'd beat Arkansas to the punch and hired Bret instead. His resume was impressive at Wisconsin. 68-24 record. 3 Rose Bowl appearances. Finalist for COY in 2010. In looking at the he potential candidates to replace CBJ, I would think a coach with a similar Power 5 resume would be a leading candidate. Is Bielama an example of that even if u make a big time hire it doesn't always pan out.

Alabama had 3 or 4 misses before they got to Saban.
Florida had a miss after both Spurrier and Meyer.
Notre Dame has all the money in the world and God on their side and they keep missing.

It's just an inexact science.

No mattresses within a 50 mile radius of Knoxville would be safe.

Notre Dame is probably the hardest job in the country. High academic standards, demanding boosters not only on wins but in other ways, social challenges at the school for recruits. Money can't fix the problems they face

We'd have gargantuan offensive linemen and not much else.

With that offense I would pull my eyes out. Terribly boring. Give me Paul Johnson before that hogwash.

OP, as someone who lives in Arkansas let me say this as gently as I can: NOPE. I realize that Arkansas may not be the easiest place to recruit, but Beliema’s SEC record is 10-25. Let that sink in a bit

No, it proves that most of UW's success is due to the system/style that they play and that style isn't easily transferable to other locations without the athletes needed to run said system. The system matters more than the coach. That's why most coaches there have similar season without the peaks and valleys. See G. Andersen at Oregon State.

Please god NO!! Don’t even say that lard bucket’s name and Tennessee in the same sentence. In Madison they hate him like we hate Kiffen. They call him “Bert” because no one wants to say his name. He was able to win only from Alvarez’s shadow. Terrible game manager, huge ego, snipes at the fans. Please kill this thread before I throw up.🤢
