Sorry guys. Just got word that Fedora and Strong said no tonight. Fedora said he was just not interested and strong came back with "I got an offer I can not refuse". Will earn my keeps here BUT asked Wes to respond to multiple tweets before I repeated what I am hearing and never got a response. Felt like you deserved to hear it.
I will say UT plans to counter with an offer that Strong will prob not turn down. It is in the 4s

First post? Interesting timing for it.
UT is only offering a 4s? I would have at least thought they would have offered the new coach an Iphone 5....
Like I said I will earn my keeps around hear and would not pay a dime to prove anything. Joined to see if Wes had more info than I was getting or the same. Obviously he is more cautious with the info he is getting. I actually understand. But I don't have anything to lose.
Someone joins and that's their first post? Sorry, but I'm not buying it for one second...
Don't have to buy it at all. Don't care I can leave the board just as fast as I came in. If u want good "rumors" when they come in I will let you all know. Not claiming to be the guy making the decisions here. Just letting you all know what's going on.
"keeps around hear"....
Why don't you ask Wes why he has not responded yet? He got the same info as I did. He just don't want to report it it yet cause it is still a "rumor". I know for a fact he got it. The reason u all like this site is because he does not deal in "rumors". Which is fine with me. I will tell all of u all though I will report the the things he hears just to let u all know what is being told from coaches.
I'm also gonna have to jump in to say the same thing. You make these claims but it's not being said by the guys that do this for a living and the reason why we pay for a subscription here? I find all this hard to believe.
"Give him six" "We don't give a damn about the whole state of Alabama" "Grit N Grind"
Welcome, Smokey. I'll take care of that 34_ for you right now.
Your team. All the time.
Like I said guys. It's fine if u don't agree. It is a "rumor" from a first hand guy.
If he strong is announced with a BIG salary know why!
If you log out and log back in again that 34_ should go away. Thanks again.
Judge me as you may, but I tend to judge the validity of a post based off of its' grammar, capitalization, and punctuation.
Don't buy it, dude. If you're right, good for you, but I really doubt it. Definitely doubt Fedora said no to us.
Nice try though!
If Strong is announced with a big salary it'll be because UT is paying what everyone thought they would have to from the beginning. It's been well known and said on here many times that Louisville would do what they can to keep Strong including a raise. We all knew that Strong would cost a lot. So stop trying to build credit on already known info. Just post and have a good time here. There's no need to try and impress people here.
Strong will not be announced first thing in the morning. This might go a while "Thursday" if announced. Unlike all media expected. If announced tomorrow it is because we have a better offer. I don't have inside sources on strong side. I do know what I have heard and he turned down our first offer after giving all expectations of him excepting. He went back and they countered a ridiculous amount. Ball is in our court and I will tell you we will not offer as high as their counter.
Outta curiosity, why don't you tell us a little about yourself. Not tryin to flame on you, but I'd just like to know what you do for a living and what not. Just trying to qualify what your saying a bit
Certainly not a spelling teacher...
Give Him Six!
Seriously under 10 posts and all the sudden we're supposed to listen to your info. Lets get some credentials. Know this is my first but I'm not acting like an expert
Enjoy the ride, guys. If he is a troll he is at least well mannered. If not, fun stuff! Will update the troll tracker today and let his claims stand on their own. We shall see!
I'll throw on my Galaxy S3 if it will help!
Actually many of us don't want unconfirmed rumors posted to this site. Unless you can provide a named source, you are assumed automatically to be a troll by anyone on this site with a brain.
Please see the "TrollTracker" thread, aka Douche Tracker.
Yeah, we've all been just waiting around to hear what you had to say on our coaching search.
