    To me, Jones is an unknown, because his two jobs have both followed Brian Kelly who left both programs in great shape. He has spent three years at each of two schools. He's done fine, but if I'm Tennessee, I wouldn't hire him. I would want to see more. Not to mention that aside from Cincinnati, he has only coached for two years at a BCS School, even as an assistant - two years at West Virginia. For full disclosure, let me also say that I have never watched a Butch Jones team actually play a game.

    Now, among those three, he still might be the best option, but I just wonder what is holding UT back.

    They have talent. They have facilities. They have a strong fanbase. They are in the SEC, but they are also in the East, which would be the easier division to win. I don't know. I just think that there would be plenty of solid candidates interested in the UT job.

    I know he won't go there, but I think Gary Patterson would do great at UT, and it would be a good fit.

    Butch Davis is the best coach for winning games out there, but he might have picked the wrong school to go hog wild with. He may be blackballed like Petrino.

    Coach Smart I assume has a window period. A couple of weeks?

    Any glue laying around? This is the last one, hopefully they will fill it in the next few days.

    Too much sweating it out in the past week for me. I'm ready for a break.

    I agree and here's the thing that has me a little concerned about UT. With Hart and his relationship with Alabama I assume he'd accept Kirby's demand to coach the BCSCG.

    Sounds like Ol Tennstud has forgotten to lock his computer again.

    LOL, I daresay most of us do not pull in $2M a year, and would take such a job just for the salary, and probably millions in buyout after we failed. I would especially do that at a school I want to lose! My first acts would be to put beer taps in the weight room and create a public website offering cash to prospects.

    Re: Joe Schad - TENN now interested in Kirby Smart

    There are big steps in sports ... from the bullpen to the pitcher's mound, from the practice tee to the first tee, and from the successful football assistant to the top guy.

    In my opinion, Kirby has to leave to come back. He has to show that he can run The Show. Unless CNS decides to give Sunday afternoons another shot, he's not going anywhere for a good, long while. And I doubt Alabama will commit now or ever to turn over all that Saban has built to a lifelong assistant, even one as talented as Kirby.
