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
