    Re: 2012 Coaching Carousel Catch All Thread

    I don't care who TN hires, if they aren't a genius recruiter like Saban then they'll fail. Tennesse has virtually nil high school talent, except for the Memphis area. What does Gruden know about recruiting college kids?

    Exactly, which, combined with Gruden's 'long term' coaching at TB, is why I want him there. They want him, will pay stupid money for him, and we'll keep grinding them down. It will crush their soul, which I find desirable.

    I know he has cleaned things up for MNF but just wait & see if he gets back.

    The way I read it this is a do or die hire for Hart.
    Tom, I agree, Hart better make this a good one.

    Maybe he is just trying to get a raise? Or maybe he is thinks that he'd better to leave before the LSU fans realize that he is a mediocre coach (though a great recruiter).

    The Gruden story is false for another reason. The ownership would be against NCAA rules. Haslem would have to give Gruden's part to UT, who gives it to Gruden. IOW, UT would be the owner.

    And, as everyone knows, the Memphis recruiting scene has been and is toxic. Someone with zero experience recruiting could get in trouble quickly recruiting Memphis if they're not careful. I'm with CrimsonAudio, Gruden will be Kiffin Part Deux for UT --- first class train wreck.

    I can't help but think back to everything that Fulmer and UT did to/against Bama in the late 90's/early 00's and just grin. You truly reap what you sow . . .

    I don't know which is more laughable: Gruden to UT or Miles to Arkansas.

    Why would Miles even consider leaving LSU? Money? Doubtful, and even if that's was motivates him, LSU would match any offer to keep him, much the same way that Bama would match any offer to keep Coach Saban. Miles would be taking a step down to say the least, and unless his true desire is to try and rebuild a program that is down, I just don't see it.

He's not the most on discipline, and discipline is what it's going to take to tear down and rebuild what is now the Arky fb program.
    JMHO
    Perhaps a different angle is he "inherited" what he has at LSU and at AK he could show he is a program builder.

    Doubt it happens...seems crazy....but everybody thought we were crazy back when we thought we were going to get CNS.

    Listening to the radio about this issue this morning. The hosts were saying that this also violates some NFL rules. Gruden cannot continue to be paid by Tampa while owning part of another team.

    I really don't know anything about this Cleveland Brown ownership thing it seems crazy to me but Gruden is Done with Tampa in December he can do what he wants without having to pay the Glasers any money back.

    But it makes me question Why would he be putting so much effort in UT when the Browns are so bad? As a owner of a NFL team seems to me if he thinks Gruden is so Great then he should hire him for the Browns?

    All this stuff is just crazy may be the Agents just shooting up salaries?

    I don't know but it is hilarious to read the TigerDroppings forums in light of how they hated Les Miles and wanted him gone and are now really worried that he'll leave them for Arkansas. LSU fans are quickly becoming like Barners. They have allowed themselves to become Bama's little red-haired step-brother. They have a good program. I don't get why they think like this and have us in their heads so much.
