YES! I sure hope so!
You might want to do some research about money UL has deeper pockets than you think, google it. And with us go g ACC he'll get the recruits he needs. I just got a notification From espn app on my phone that we are negotiating he's contract and extending it.
Don't worry I hear that there are a couple of Sun Belt coaches with promising upsides...
UT Class of 2012 #17 on 247Sports.com
The acc is still not close to the sec when it comes to fans and recruits.
1) Even with going to the ACC, it doesn't make a lot of big time recruits want to go there. The ACC is a Bball conf. You can put lipstick on a pig, but it's still a pig. There's been some reports of highly touted high school recruits would play for Strong at UT but wouldn't consider Louisville.
2) Even with matching the $$, the gameday atmosphere at Louisville, the history at l'ville, and the traditions at l'ville cannot compare to Tennessee.
3) He wants to coach in the SEC
Not saying that he's leaving L'ville, but come on, you can't sit back and try and compare the two programs and say louisville is a better destination.

Why is everyone freaking out about this ?
This is how negotiating works. There are so many possibilities right now.
Strong could be doing this simply to be courteous to the program that gave him his first HC gig.
Or, to get more money from UT.
Or, to get a big extension from UL.
Or, he truly hasn't made his mind up yet.
Who knows ?
Regardless, saying that Hart has botched the process, doesn't have a clue, or we are screwed, is just crazy to say right now. At least wait until later when we actually know what's going on.

Agree with everything in this post.
I absolutely agree with you. People need a little patience.

Never said that my friend no need to get hostile. I can care less about the sec or irrelevant UT. I'm just trying to say money is not a factor and you don't NEED a roster LOADED with 5* recruites to win and you don't need to play in the sec to play for a title.
As far as us not knowing what Hart is doing, doesn't mean he doesn't know what he is doing. It just means he isn't talking. I would rather he stay focused on the task at hand, than holding a press conference once or twice a day to report on speculation. Nobody saw Arkansas' hire coming. The silence in part of the game until you have your coach locked up.
Buck, I agree with all your points. Your last one is most important. He won't go to UK, MSU, Ole Miss, so what other options would he have ? This IS his opportunity to have 2 & 3 now. I'd be shocked if he stays here.
You're right. and i wasn't getting hostile. I was saying, taking money out of it, Louisville cannot compare to UT. and your suggestion that UT is irrelevant and Louisville is is a bit misguided. Have you seen the college football news recently? UT is all over the national media in this coaching search.
I keep making the mistake of expecting logic and reason to prevail but continually am disappointed my most.
No.... But the SEC has been dominant in the BCS era of title games.... Irrelevant Tennessee has one of those crystal balls....
I'm done guys, didn't come on here to start anything. Good luck though.

if Louisville has "so much money" why didnt they pay him more in the 1st place?? and when ya have to beg people to come watch ya play, seems like at some point you realize your at a basketball school and thats likely not to change
