Thunder Thornton, the Haslems, and the like need to step in here...quickly.
You don't become a billionaire by jumping on a sinking ship. just kidding...sort of.
Who in the hell are you going to hire? No one has turned us down because we low balled them for crying out loud. We were about to make Charlie Strong the 7th highest paid coach in football. Let that sink in. It's not about money
Roman?Davis?Bo?Jackson? There are options.
This is Hart taking the same path that Hamilton did with Dooley. Personal pride before the program.
UGa --- Gofff>>Donnan
Bama --- DuBose>>Franchione>>Price>>Shula
TN --- Dooley>>Jones>>??.... its an old tune in the SEC
Somehow I don't think Hart had Butch Jones in mind when he spoke of returning UT to its righteous spot in the SEC!!
Boosters should start picking up phones and dialing.

+1 just for bringing a childhood memory back. I loved that freakin game!! The Raiders were bada$$ on that game and even though he wasn't a VOL, Bo Jackson will always be one of my all-time favorite sport figures!
I'm not quite old enough to have fully appreciated his talent, but I love playing him in Super Tecmo Bowl and all the footage/articles I've ever seen/read of the guy lead me to think he might've been the greatest athlete in the past 30 years.
I don't think he'd take the UT Head Coach job though...
hahaha! Yea I don't think he's coming to the rescue. Also IMO there's no argument he was the greatest athlete in the last 30 yrs.......maybe ever!!
Really! I could use a new car. Should I leave my contact info?
Bo knows football!
If you're holding out for Gruden Jimmy Hyams said this afternoon the Haslems were some of the people against going after him.
I don't know if it would affect much now but it is something to think about. Bama got turned by Rich Rod and the boosters stepped in and said its time to get out of the way and let us handle this. I could see our guys doing that as well, unfortunately there's not a Nick Saban caliber guy out there for them to go get. However Roman and Hue Jackson are both worth contacting and I think would be good hires as well.
"Give him six" "We don't give a damn about the whole state of Alabama" "Grit N Grind"
When I see all these people talking about boosters paying a lot of cash for the new HC, and I realize that many of these are the same people who will not pay to go to a game until the program gets better, I realize one simple truth -
It's a lot easier to spend someone else's money than your own.
Dang when I first glanced I thought it said Bo Jackson.
For the record . . . . I attend games and want my kids (3) to attend too. . . . for a long time to come
Reality is that the boosters are the enablers in all this.
What I meant was the big money boosters step in and run the coaching hire. I don't think money is the issue...do you?
unbefreakingbelievable. I don't care what the truth of the behind the scenes is, Hart/Cheek look like morons out in public-land with all the rumors. The guys paying the bills should have quarterbacked this thing the whole way.
They have. His name is Jon Gruden. Your welcome.
Now all Vol fans come together and enjoy the ride!
