He'd win, but I'm just embarrassed at the idea.
"Count it down with me. Five, four, three, two, one.
The national champion is clad in Big Orange!"
As usual I don't agree with Adams article
"I just want to put the situation in perspective"? Hey John, here's perspective for you...it takes one to advocate one.
We definitely don't need a "win at all costs" coach. We need one who will continue to build on the solid foundation laid by CDD and his staff. CDD has restored dignity and respect to the program. Now we need someone who can build on that and restore a winning attitude at the same time.
Petrino should be given the opportunity to turn down our job. Players and their families are worldly enough to realize that they are not signing with a pastor, but with someone they hope can prepare junior for the NFL and win football games. The character issue is only a problem if you don't win. I am not concerned about the negative press we may receive. Tennessee has be viewed as an outlaw program for many years and probably deserves the rap. The SEC is a win first and expain later league.

So if you view TN as an "outlaw program" then do you also view these programs as "outlaw"?
The problems that we have had in the past are no worse than these and many more. I really don't see that we have the rap as "outlaw". I am curious as to why you feel we have that label.
Not got a lot of money, but a Petrino hire will turn me away for good, Can't support a team with a coach like that. Think of the message that sends to our young men and women. Lie, cheat, and all else that goes along with it, and get rewarded with a multi-million dollar contract. No thanks!
I'm sorry but petrino made a bad mistake but everyone acts like he killed someone. He or his program never were slapped w anything from the NCAA. He hired a lady he was sleeping w. big deal. This happens all over and the only reason it was brought to light was because arky was a top 5 team. I would take petrino and enjoy winning until he ran away in the night
You ever wonder why Petrino wasn't a great recruiter? You just hit it on the head.
P.R. nightmare. We'll deal with more negativity than the winning is worth.

Petrino deserves another chance someday, but not with UT and not so soon. Let's flesh out some more possibilities before we go down this road.
