    2012 Coaching Carousel thread

    Haven't seen this all in one place yet so I thought I'd create it

    Current speculation in other threads and on other boards seems to point to (as of 11/6)

    The boogs are talking to Petrino (again)

    Pigs seem to think they are getting "a Grown Man"

    KY seems have a long list on hopefuls but I haven't heard a single solid name yet

    Is TN keeping Dooley?

    opinions? comments? Inside info anyone?

    The boogs and the common knowledge of caos in the high ranks couple with the whispering of future NCAA problems scares away any big named coach.

    It comes down to James Franklin and Gus Malzahn for which they will be lucky to get either.

    I will die of laughter if Arkansas gets Gundy.

    I'm not sure Gundy leaves his alma mater and the money of T. Boone Pickens to go to Arkansas. Dooley is teetering, a big time loss to Vandy or Kentucky will send him packing. As for the boogs, Petrino would seem to be the early favorite. UK who cares. This is going to get interesting.

    Pigs are claiming that T-Boone/Gundy hate one another and that there is a power struggle behind the scenes at Okie State making Gundy want to jump. I have no idea if it's true

    A friend of mine who is an Arkansas booster says U Meyer was at Arkansas last week - I told him he was crazy - there was no way Meyer would leave OSU for Arkansas, and he was crazy if he thought so.

    If that is true then Gundy would be an excellent hire for the Hogs or Vols.

    He'd be Petrino with even less defense.

    Your friend must be insane or delusional because Urban Meyer isn't taking a step down to leave Ohio State for Arkansas. OSU is arguably the best program in the Big Ten and Meyer's home state. Arkansas isn't on the same level as them.

    This is the correct answer. Urban might leave tOSU someday but he will never take another SEC job.

    From coachingsearch.com:

    Arkansas: Sources tell me that TCU head coach Gary Patterson has now emerged as the leading candidate for Arkansas head coaching job.

    Now THAT would be an interesting situation. To me it seems like that would be one heck of a pull for the Razorbacks. Do others think he could make Arky more competitive in the long run?
