    2012 Coaching Carousel Catch All Thread

    I'll say about this job what I said about the Auburn job. Forget about trying to make a hire that will excite your fan base. You know what will REALLY excite your fan base? Winning ball games August thru November. And there are at least a few head coaches or former head coaches who can do that and certainly a coordinator or two that can.

    I don't care if they bring back General Neyland, if they don't win ball games, nobody will come to the games.

    The name of the game is winning. And if they get over themselves and understand that, there are a LOT of bright young coordinators who are ready to be the next Boom Muschamp, Jimbo Fisher, or Kevin Sumlin

    yup, nailed it

    personally I hope no one in the UT fan base takes your advice and no one in the admin has the guts to try to do it right. They are so focused on "the big splash" that they can't see straight. It's fun to watch

    I see quite a few around the web saying that Hart is at fault "shouldn't have fired Dooley without a coach in his back pocket". Like they would't have crucified Hart by now if he hadn't fired Dooley yet?

    Couple things: Bret's wife instantly moves the SEC wife group to the top of the list. He outkicked his coverage by the length of the field. He brought her out to do the hog call.

    Also, in his Presser he backtracked on his derogatory remarks about the SEC last summer. Alluded to the fact that he was looking for a new challenge even before the Arkansas job became available. And he said flat out that one of his biggest challenges that he had at Wisconsin was that the university wasn't wired to really pay for good assistants. That can definitely hamper things. Doubt he has those same struggles at Arkansas

    Chavis should have been on their radar anyways... Hart is quickly becoming a disaster

    Hey Daddy why doesn't Auburn have a number beside their name? 5 year old son during the iron bowl.

    lafella, your signature made me laugh aloud. That's awesome.

    I wouldn't be so quick to pin this on Hart, as many Vol fans are. Very unrealistic expectations by that fanbase.

    Hart inherited a major dumpster fire.

    He might not be a popular choice with Vile Fans..I would go after Coach Johnson from Georgia Tech..I think he would do good there..That's just my opinion..

    If this is true where does Trooper end up? Is Foster with his Barn tattoos tied to Trooper?

    Does Tennessee now go after Bama's Kirby? What do all these failures say about Tennessee's AD? Cincinnati's Jones may be a back up now or Davis or who knows. I just can't think of anyone else at this time.

    It IS true. Gus has let everybody go. And it will, no doubt, have an effect in this recruiting class
