    Interesting note from Les' presser. He decline to say who initiated the contact between Arkansas and his camp.

    In a surprise to no one but Vols, Gruden says no to the Tennessee offer.

    Aubie co-worker asked me that was the Oklahoma State coach. Then he proceeded to tell me I was being a butt by saying I would let him look that one up.

    Another interesting take from Miles's presser:

    "John Chavis would make a very good head coach. If Tennessee is looking for quality candidate, John Chavis should be that."

    The Chief's love for UT is unquestionable and I've always wondered why he's never been a serious candidate.

    Also interesting that Les is pining for him for that job

    Agreed... I remember seeing LSU fans tweet out concerns that Chavis would be a top target for Tennessee when the job came open. Granted, he might be at the point where he's content being a coordinator.

    Chavis could very well end up being the guy who gets the call. The fanbase got their hopes up so high with Gruden that I bet they try a few more calls to "name" head coaching candidates before going into the quality coordinator pool. I get the feeling that Smart won't be a legitimate candidate there because I think their is some Saban-disciple fatigue in Knoxville after Dooley and Sunseri flopped.

    Most quality head coaches will support a promotion or a move that is in the best interests of an assistant.

    Forgot all about Chavis. If he ask head coaching aspirations UT might not could do any better right now.

    But I just wonder if he would rather be the career assistant.

    FWIW, I've read that he is one quality individual.

    I agree completely just wonder if he is interested in donning the captains hat
    Hey Daddy why doesn't Auburn have a number beside their name? 5 year old son during the iron bowl.

    Auburn has interviewed Charlie Strong from Louisville.

    http://www.al.com/auburnfootball/ind...isville_c.html

    Would be a quality hire if they can get him.

    I'd hate that for Charlie

    Pete Thamel of Sports Illustrated tweeted he talked to Strong, who said he had not interviewed with Auburn.
    No pun intended, but it would take a very "strong" HC to take over the *U job. In that "win at all costs" atmosphere, I don't think Charlie's the man to do it. Not that he couldn't, but because I doubt he would want to be part of that circus.
