Robert Allen on the radio: "I've got some news, Mike Gundy is staying at Oklahoma State... He has made a decision." #okstate
Robert Allen is in the know at OSU, for what it's worth.
Your team. All the time.
Welp. Let's see if this thing with Strong moves quickly now.
Charlie Strong, Come on down!
BUTCH IS NOT FOR THE FAINT OF HEART. GO VOLS!
Well, I guess Strong wasn't the top candidate/first choice.
This can't be a surprise. Each denial makes me lose faith in Hart.
Clearly at UT, we are not man enough for a coach like The Gundy.
I am starting to get that 'bird in hand' itch on the back of my neck. I am probably wrong but...
You lose faith because the guy prioritized his candidates and is offering in order of priority? What the heck else should he do?
Either way...I'm good. I just don't want to fall down to Butch Jones for some reason.
Dave Hart has to know that we will not accept a bargain hire. He wants full seats? We need a coach with experience and a drive to GIVE US a reason to fill Neyland Stadium every home game in the fall.
Or, Gundy was informed that we're going with Strong, so he beats us to the punch. Won't be surprised to see something confirm Strong to UT within a few hours. Possibly a surprise hire if not Strong.
We do not know this. There are so many things we do not know because Hart has ran this search the right way - quietly. We cannot ASSUME anything..... I'm not trying to scold or berate, however I think we just need to let Hart do his job. He has been down this road before - he knows what he is doing.
This is crazy! This can't go on for much longer.
This. Lots of coaches do this. Now if that's not the case and we were already turned down by Strong..... What happens now?
agree with your second part... but have a hard time believing that Strong had an offer prior to Gundy saying no.
So in the know that the OSU rivals board is saying Allen also said Les Miles wasn't leaving.....right up until the press release that he took the LSU job.
I don't know the guy from Adam, but the OSU rivals board isn't putting much into his comments.
Having said that, I would be shocked if Gundy left.

A U of L source told me the school is working on renegotiating Charlie Strong's contract this hour with help of Wyatt, Tarrant & Combs LLC. "Anything can happen at this point" the U of L source said. But U of L is making its push to keep Charlie Strong.
This was retweeted by Drew Deener, host of Strong's coaches show.

If it's not Gundy or Strong then I think it brings us to Butch Jones. Fedora seems hung up on his reputation and I don't blame him really. With the way Jones has been waiting, it seems he may have been the back up plan all along.
Talk 'bout the SH*T hitting the fan if that is our fallback! A resounding thud w/the fans, recruits...you name it. Butch Jones is a one-way tkt to nowhere IMO.
No surprise here. Never thought he would leave.
Robert Allen is the mouthpiece of the university. He is a huge homer and has been wrong plenty of times. While he could be right this time, he could easily be wrong again. I don't think anything is final until it's final and most of us really don't know what is going on.
Gundy is playing a dangerous game if he's not really interested in leaving.

Totally agree with this one. Jones = Dooley 2.0
