Who is begging?
Anyway, he is a 3rd year head coach whose salary has gone from something like 1 mil to 2.5 mil in less than 3 years. His pay is increasing at an astronomical rate. You don't suggest we should have paid a first year head coact 3.5 million dollars do you?
End of the day the money isn't an issue. We are one of the richest most financially secure ath departments in the nation. If he leaves it wont be because we were out bid.

I agree 100% with you. I love UT, but if Strong chooses to stay at L'ville, it wont be because money was an issue, same thing if he decides to leave.
I just think UT has a LOT more to offer from a football standpoint that Louisville will for the foreseeable future and i think he'd be crazy not to leave, especially since he "wants" to coach in the SEC.
No one begs anyone to come watch us play, look everyone knows we're a basketball school and that will never change but money will never be a issue with us. The thing is when football is winning and we have good teams coming in to play us like Clemson and fl state coming every other year in acc we will sell out the stadium and people will beg to get in the game and facilities we compare to anyone. If he can get top 25 recruiting classes at louisville in the big east who knows wat he can do in the acc or even the sec with UT. But then again he's not worth this kind of money right now in his career I mean that puts him in the top 8 and has yet to when a BCS game
As if you can't tell cardsfan we are desperate.......

Did you really just say that your facilities compare to anyone's in the nation?.........bahahahahahahahahahahahahahahajahahahahaha!!!! Our weight room is bigger than your alls practice facility. Also the ACC isn't much of an upgrade there either pal. But go ahead and dream, maybe one day you guys will be in a conference like "THE SEC" were they play grown man football!
LOL, at least you're honest...
As a UL fan and no matter how this turns out I feel like I have a vested interest in the UT job search. I've been following this non-stop just like you guys :-)
I hope Charlie stays at UL (and like others have said it won't be about money), but if he leaves I wish him the best at Tenn. I think most of your fans are spot on in their evaluations of him, very good recruiter, great defensive coach, old school football coach (hard work in the weight room and classroom), still green though and the UT job might be a little much for him at this point.
79 ask yourself this: If all I say is true why are we having such a hard time finding a coach?
Strong is already the highest-paid coach in the Big East, and the 26th highest-paid coach in the nation - and this for a guy who has been a head coach for a total of three years, and who came into this season only two wins over .500. So yeah, Louisville did pay him a lot more than most schools would have at the time.
Class post. +1
"Old School"! A strong defense wins championships!
Didn't UK beat you all last year?
What school in what conference are you trying to poach a coach from? Un-successfully, I might add.
As far as facilities, bigger doesn't mean better. But hey, at least your school is all over the news in your coaching search. Strong turns down the Vols/SEC...Gundy turns down Vols/SEC...Gundy turns down Vols/SEC AGAIN...Strong tells UT to "get up off of the ground and quit begging, it's unbecoming of an institution that used to be good at football-I'm sure one of my assistants might be interested in wearing that putrid orange color if you ask nice enough"
While our "irrelevant" little Big East school is plastered all over the ESPN because AU, TN and Arky want our little coach. With no return interest. Ouch.

I sense a bit of jealousy. Its ok i understand hey what can i say its great to be a vol. Its funny now how all of you are taking up for him now that he might leave but you wont fill the stadium to watch him coach. How many people does your stadium hold anyways? What about a fourth of what ours holds or less?
We got Strong.
You got played.
I think that Lane might be free again once USC fires him-maybe he'll be interested.
Make an offer of $4M and call it a day...
And for those who know soccer:
ROFLMAO Wake up it's time for school
