It's pretty clear at this point that there are administration issues from top to bottom at this University. Until someone really commits to excellence in athletics, we have no shot.
I'm starting to believe the same, every UT fan in the world should be pissed right now

yeah, it will be a long time. it looks like we are destined for another dooley. That puts us back 3 more years at least.
Unless Hart can pull something out of his arse, the remaining candidates will be considered "so-what" hires and fall flat with recruits, fan base, media. I agree w/Myrickle...something else is @ play here. It's probably related to perception of leadership (or lack thereof) at admin or AD level, academics, probation, financial issues or some combination.
I don't know what the answer is, but this is FUBAR. TN is on it's way to becoming the laughing stock of the SEC & college football nationally if we're not there already given the slide of the past 5-7yrs and the way this coach search is playing out. Reached out to the longshots (Gruden, Stoops, Fisher and maybe more) and all say no thanks. Reportedly, official offers made to Gundy & sweetened to Strong...NO on both counts and being reported in the national sports press (yet another hit to the UT brand). Now we move our way to Fedora who's apparently a NO b/c being @ NC for 1yr and not wanting to bail on his commitment (which I completely respect by the way); next in line is ? Golden, Butch Davis, Butch Jones or the coordinator route. I think most of us get the point.

Hire Butch Davis and UT is good again in two years. He is a great recruiter, very good game coach, and big name.
So two coaches in really good situations say they'd rather stay where they're at, and all of the sudden the university is rotten to the core? Big leap there my friend.
