This is the Clay Travis interview with Greg Sankey about whose decision it is when it come to hiring a coach. They have posted the link on this page so you can go look it up. I am going to put the interview on here for discussion.

"When asked about Hugh Freeze"


“Well, I give Hugh credit for his work at Liberty. It was fun to watch their bowl game and seeing him with his family at the end of the game, with a smile on his face,” Sankey told Travis. “Good for him and how he’s turned the page.”
Sankey was then asked about Freeze potentially being hired by an SEC school.“Our schools make their own hiring decisions,” Sankey told Travis. “I think we’ve been clear that the conference membership established that each school is responsible, for a head coach position or assistant coach position, to fully evaluate the background of the (candidates). They do that through our office. We share information that is publicly available. Then they make decisions.”


“I won’t speak to any one individual,” Sankey said.
He then added, “I get blamed for a lot. So I’ll take the blame. We expect our universities, and they expect each other, to be responsible in their personnel decisions. … Ultimately, our campuses make those decisions.”

Okay now from the way I take this is if we wanted to hire Freeze it would be our decision, They would provide info like it says but in the end it would be our decision. So there you have it if we want him and we are will live with the scrutiny we can have him. I am all in I want him now.

The way to take that is:

“We won’t force a school to not hire a candidate. What we will do is make sure that you see it our way when we share our information.”

Ergo we don’t hire someone Sankey doesn’t approve of. It’s the inverse of a non-denial denial. (If you’ve seen All The President’s Men).

Well in the interview he did say he believes he had turned the page so who knows.

Doesn't matter. What's Sankey going to do if he presents info and UT hires Freeze anyway? Nada--that's what he said, each school makes their own personnel hires. And if Freeze came in and won big, Sankey will just sit back, collect the checks, and continue to kiss Saban's ass.

All that being said, it doesn't really matter. We'll probably hire the OC from The Citadel.

That's where they are now. So who cares?
Yep, the NCAA has extended residence rates over at the Cumberland House, likely to review and rereview everything from the compliance department on Fulmer's watch/failure to watch, the investigative team may be the only people in the stadium for the orange and white game in April making sure there aren't any $50s in the Petros.
