Imagine the meltdown if Gruden came here and was having the results he’s had in Oakland to this point.

Exactly why the AD didn't offer him $10,000 per year & total control of football team, chemistry class, men's basketball team & control of the nursing program
Gruden wanted all the money & control of everything
If he failed, then the AD that hired him would never get a job elsewhere
Glad we didn't hire Willie Taggert or Charlie Strong or Burch Davis. Would have been more of a disaster for program

That was 10 million dollars not 10 thousand. Sorry. Fat fingers

Did anyone watch the Raiders the season. Griffen is not a great coach, extremely football smart but that does not translate to being a good coach. His time has passed.

Gruden was ga-ga over Johnny Football and said he was a slam dunk first round pick. What ever he says,do the opposite.

There must have been 3,000+ miles of threads and 2.6 zillion gigs of memory used up on Grumors over the past what, 5 years? His triumphant return to Ktown though is really just fodder now because we have a coach that appears to be capable of elevating us back to the elite SEC status we are accustomed to. We ALL dreamed that Gruden would be that man as we had nothing else to hold onto w regards to Dreams. Thanks Grudes, you will always be a part of faux folklore here in Knoxville!
