    TN seems to have the same things going against them that Auburn has. Given the notion that Smart turned down Auburn, would he consider TN?

    After things not working out well with Dooley and Sunseri, I can't really see UT going after another Saban assistant.

    TN is a better job, but didn't they get burned a bit by taking a Saban guy with limited head coaching experience? No offense to Smart of course, but I'd think they would want to try something different.

    I know it's not the case with coaches but how would you feel being offered a job you knew numerous people had already declined? I always prefer to be the first choice.

    espn reported that so far gruden, fedora, gundy, and strong have turned them down and their next batch of interviews will be pellini (nebraska), smart, and butch jones. with such a publicly conducted search why would smart even interview knowing he was, at best, their #5 candidate?

    Be glad when this is over. It becomes the board obsession, me included.

    Because it has the potential to be a very good job. It doesn't matter if you're the 5th choice if you still get the job. It's what you do with it that matters. I was afraid they might start calling CKS, because it's enough of a high-level job to take it. If he gets offered, it wouldn't be a bad decision to take it. Yes, it is one of our main rivals, but that might mean a lot less to a UGA grad than it does to us.


    Call me crazy, but if I get a phone call for an offer to coach UT, I'd take it. I probably couldn't even draw up a fullback dive out of I formation without missing some major points. I live in TN and despise that shade of orange (or pretty much any shade of orange, but anyway). But I would be thrilled to be their 8,204th pick given the resources they have.

    This is one KS is definitely interested in. Certainly moreso than the Barn.

    Pretend you just interviewed for a job that you really wanted at a Fortune 500 company. Let's say you finally hear back from them and they come through with an offer that has a 100% increase in salary over your current job. Let's say you also know that you weren't the first person they offered the job to, would you still take it?

    Who wouldn't?
    Fool me once, shame on me. Fool me twice? Congratulations, you'd probably make a pretty good con-man.

    I've said it ad nauseum and I'll say it again - go OUTSIDE the SEC, take your lumps, make your mistakes, THEN come in and do your thing.
    I'll always look back as I walk away
    This memory will last for eternity
    And all of our tears will be lost in the rain
    Til I find my way back to your arms again
    But until that day you know you are
    The queen of my heart
