I am now (as of this morning) hearing new Gruden rumors. Yes, I am a nobody. One of which is from family in Knoxville (I am in Houston Tx) supposedly Gruden is there in town (way below radar) and the Louisville thing was all a HUGE smoke screen in order to get him there with anyone knowing (all reporters were covering Strong)...Also heard that the Raheem Morris and Tee Martin Rumors from 1-2 weeks ago were not necessarily myths....and they are going to be on staff...
I cant believe I am even posting this... but the thing is i heard the same thing from (2) totally unrelated places....Yes the Gruden talk is probably B.S .....I know absolutely nobody, not trolling have never had a beer with Haslam, this is what I am hearing from average Joe's from back home...this is whats floating around on the streets in town....
I guess I hold out hope because there never was a "Believable" outright "I am not going to UT to coach" from Gruden, an agent saying this is just that...an agent saying stuff to quiten down the media...
I also find it to hard to believe that Hart really is this bad of an A.D.....as well as the fact that we just cant seem to give this job away...I don't buy that anymore...I think there is something (maybe not Gruden) but something coming down the pipe that none of us will be able to say we saw it coming...
You are correct. Gruden is our next hc.
This is the creation of babyvol from volchat and Steve Hargis from the Chatt TFP. Thousands have read this theory which seems to have been reignited this week.
8thmaxim.com was on it before they were.
I didn't see any of this crap coming! You, sir, are right about this one thing!
Hey! What part of Houston??
stop saying Strong was a smokescreen. It's just not true. i wont try and debunk the Gruden stuff, even though it's pure fantasy. But Strong was offered. He told his players and is quoted as saying turning us down was "the toughest decision he has ever had to make.." So, unless Strong is "in" on the conspiracy smoke screen, he was offered and most thought he would take the deal.
Cypress, Im at work at the moment...talked to a buddy of mine from back home in Morristown, my Dad also told me he heard Gruden "may" have been flown in late last night or will be...but did say that he diddnt believe any of it....I just found it odd that this stuff seems to be picking up....I will admit I do want Gruden but gave up like everyone else earlier this week and late last week...but i suppose its possible that there are some serious back room talks going on...who knows...just found it really odd...
I know this has been tough for all of us.
But at some point, those of us who have departed need to rejoin the real world.
point is this...I heard what I posted from 2 people 1000 miles away from me that live in the Country of East Tennessee and DO NOT read message boards, trending news articles, rumor mills etc....they get their news from the local news channels at 6 and 11....this is apparently floating around the average population...sure it could be just that...a RUMOR but its coming from the least likely places....
The Internet isn't called the World Wide Web for nothing.
It distributes pond scum onto every shoreline on the planet.
plenty of scum out there...your right....it is what it is...
Very cool,Im headed to The Woodlands this weekend for winter break
I'm from Morristown too. If you can say who your buddy is it might help shed some light on the situation for me. Several guys from that area have good connections with the school. I'd love to believe this is true but frankly I don't know what to believe, think, feel, etc!

I'm in Houston area also (Sienna Plantation).
I wont name names, but will say he is a "coach" of "a sport" at M-Town West HS....went to HS with him...graduated in 89...that will get you going...
Thanks, that gives me a pretty good idea. I taught for 30 years in Morristown and know most of the people in education there.
Where did u teach?
While we are on M-Town...I had a few classes with Little Man Stewart back in the day...he was a year behind me...
Started in '81 at Manley, went to East in '86 and finished up as principal at Witt from '98 to 2011.
One of the best high school players I ever saw. People don't realize that he was a heckuva basketball and baseball player also. Just a great athlete.
I've been to Cypress a couple years ago , I dated a girl from there. I saw one person with a Tennessee tag but loved that area.
Ok. Honest question.
Why do trolls exist?
No trolling here...not claiming crap...just what i heard..and yes, I am just like you...dont believe it till i see it...but what i heard and from who i heard it from woke me up a little this morning...i dont think we are finished (just yet) with Gruden...if anything its possible that something has happened very recently....or was taking place all along...who knows...I dont care one way or the other...
