Let me try to save y’all some trouble

I have read some of these threads and shake my head.

Apparently, for some, unless you’ve gone 14-0 in the SEC, you aren’t a good hire.

The current available crop of coaches is as good and deep as it gets.

Poster after poster has a problem with Kelly, Mullen, Frost, Norvell, Campbell, Fuente, Morris, etc.

I’ll save you all some trouble. There is no sure thing. There is potential risk in every hire.....including Gruden.

So, stop knocking some of these guys because they’ve lost a game in their coaching career.

I really say this sincerely. I think Tennessee folks will end up happy as long as they end up with one of the names that’s been thrown around.

Think it over again. My school is after the same list of coaches. There is no pot/kettle.

He also got canned the same time that Fulmer did, and has coached as much as Fulmer since that time.

CJM was not a good coach. He was only slightly better than Butch. FL is smart to cut ties and find someone sooner than later.

Thanks for the inspiration, but I will be happy when we beat the Gators.

Again lil man my post went over your head. You fired a man who just won back to back East Championships. Let that settled in and get back to me. And no our list and Florida's is not even remotely close. Neither Kelly,Frost,Taggart or Strong would even be in our top 5 of realistic possibilities. Not talking about what you read in the media $hit either.

People have hires they would like and hires they wouldn't.

Ground breaking stuff apparently.
