They may go for Gruden as is rumored but I don't know if his coaching style will suit college.
    I agree. I will be shocked if Gruden ends up at UT; he is a good coach, but I don't think he has the personality to be a good recruiter. The State of Tennessee does not have enough quality college athletes, making it mandatory that they spread recruiting elsewhere. I can't see Gruden doing that; he says he is having a blast in the broadcast booth.

    Re: Dooley is Out At UT (per VolQuest.com)

    I like Dooley, and I was hoping for him to be able to keep his job. They showed some promise in games like Georgia and South Carolina, but they just couldn't pull them out. I think he might have eventually righted the ship at UT, but if I was the AD, I'd fire him too for the sake of fan interest/support. The loss to Missouri had to be the final straw.

    I think Saban would hire him back but I doubt he pushes someone out to do it. Sal rushed out on this, even I knew chances were Dooley was gone after this year so leaving a place like Bama and coaching your son to take a shot like that was flat out CRAZY. Going somewhere else where the rumors and hot seat were not in place would have made sense. Not UT.

    I'm not disagreeing with you, just interested in the thought process.
    Another thing is it calms the fan base. If they fired Chiznik there would be a full house for them next week even against a pansy. Now that he's still there? Nobody.

    2) Trying to hang onto recruits as long as possible
    I don't claim to know everything on his contract either but I've heard his buyout drops to 5 million after 12/1 as well. I honestly think they wait until then to drop the guillotine on his head to save the 2.5+ million. Of course it's still a moot point if he goes to work at all after this year.

    I told my old man when Dooley went for it on 4th instead of kicking in that 4th OT that that was the final straw and they'd fire him. Of course I also said last night Chiznik wouldn't make it through the weekend as well

    If he would have scored he would be a genius today. I thought he did the right thing by showing the players he had confidence in them.

    I told my son that he would be fired when he let the clock run down on the last possession of the 4th quarter with two timeouts left.

    Re: Dooley is Out At UT (per VolQuest.com)

    Poor game/clock management can be forgiven if the coach doing it has a winning record. Let's use Les Miles as a prime example. Les can make some boneheaded calls in both playcalling and clock management. But Les has a winning record, and has had year after year ever since CNS left there.
    So Les gets a pass because his record speaks for itself.
    But Dooley at UcheaT is another story altogether. A coach who makes one boneheaded call after another and shows poor clock management skills, especially a coach with a really bad losing record, isn't going to last long.
    It takes more than a name to make a winning coach..

    Now Vince and Barbara can go back to pulling for the Dogs. It was an awkward fit for them anyway.

    I'll be surprised if Sal makes it back to the Capstone. CKS and CJP are not happy at all with Sal and his performance at Tenn. When assistants leave Alabama, particularly defensive assistants, and they have zero success and perform the way Sal has, it makes it look like Saban is the only reason Alabama's defense is dominant. It causes the other defensive coordinator/assistant coaches stock to go down, in their eyes.

    Also, IMO Sal is overrated as a coach.
