Please be civil with this guys, legitimate question and sensitive subject.
Would the University of Tennessee hire a black football coach? My stance is I don't care if you are red, white, black, blue, or orange(although I might favor that!) as long as you can coach. I think it is time for Tennessee to break down that barrier if Strong is truly the best possible candidate.
Color doesn't matter to me either but for some reason I honestly think that it would turn ugly real quick if he didn't win and win quick. I think he is to good of a person to go through that ordeal JMO
We hired Wade Houston many years ago so I don't think it's a problem.
There's no question in my mind that the University of Tennessee would hire a black football coach.

Come on, man. We had the first starting black kicker in the SEC

of course they would. I am still struggling to get my head around his recruiting ability as a head coach. In game coaching has a few question marks too. No coach is going to be perfect and at this point since we have movied onto the second tier of candidates all will have skills that are lacking in certain areas. If it is strong then ok. not my next choice after gruden.
I don't think it will get any uglier than it did with Bill Battle. Color will have little to do with it when stupid fans are involved.
WE did didn't we he coached til his son Allan graduated then left, I forgot about that those years in basketball 1990 til 99 I try to repress in my memory lol, but your correct thanks for reminding me
I don't care if he's green as long as he kicks FL, USCjr, Bama, and GA's a$$ Oh, I almost forgot -And kicks the out of Vandy.

Color doesnt matter to me I have said from the start that strong would be 2nd on my list now that gruden is out and his game was over I would try everything possible to get him starting tomorrow
Battle was before my time sir
"Count it down with me. Five, four, three, two, one.

He was a great assistant to Denny Crumb but not successful at all as a HC. He was a good man from all I know. Alan wasn't happy with UT for letting him go but he and UT have reconciled I do believe.
1st of all this is not 2nd tier coaches. Gruden wasn't on a tier.
2nd it won't matter who gets the job, if they don't win soon, the natives will be restless.
Go get him!!
I tend to agree with you...just hope we are right.
It's 2012, almost 2013. I don't think people care about race as much as the lame stream media wants us to think. If the "man" can do the job, people will love him.
Hire the man asap this Gruden crap is getting old and no I don't think his skin color is a factor.
I don't care if he is an alien (from Mexico or space) or from Alabama. The guy just won 10 games and probably going to a BCS game. Bring him in, he is going to win and win big in the SEC. Just a matter if its for us or against us.
i want the the man with the most qualifications. period.
GO BIG ORANGE !!!
GO BIG ORANGE!!!
Your team. All the time.
