No, not really. If I were Catholic, I'd probably cheer for Notre Dame too and there are a lot of Catholics in this country. I have no problem admitting that the post you quoted was not a well thought out response.
Well 2000, hard to argue w/any of those facts...well presented argument sir and I concur.
So, as I've pointed out in a number of posts, the available coaching talent pool from which UT can draw (and I'm talking about a big time, Saban-esque type hire), is very shallow...very shallow. Ya'll have heard my ramblings before on making a lateral hire, so I won't go there again.
Hart, deep pocket donors, UT admin & VOL fans in a very tough spot on this coaching change that looks to be a foregone conclusion. Absent a Gruden hire, which I concede is highly unlikely and is by no means a guarantee of success on the field (albeit a major improvment to recruiting), who's next on the short list? As everyone scripts countless scenarios and taking into account next year's schedule, this situation is looking increasingly FUBAR!
All that being said, gotta stand behind the team and support them thru thick & thin! GBO!!
Had to use a different set of rankings for this because 247 only goes back a couple years.. the database I used only goes back to 2002.

The year where ND finished 91st skews things. If you ignore that year, their average is 16th.. only 2 spots below our average. There isn't enough evidence to say either school has an advantage in recruiting but I can't imagine Tennessee ever finishing 91st.
Just curosity ND is so great hear latley and hav so much money when was the last time they won a national title and why would vols fans care what place like new york, boston, and chicago wears we area south team. Every body asking about brain kelley if nd is his dreamjob then probably not but i believe we at least should make him say no
Kids who are smart and are good athletes are attracted to Notre Dame. They sell it as a 40 year decision not a 4 year decision. You get hurt in the NFL you can get a job anywhere making big money. We are not going to get the Alabama type kids nor do we need too. I don't know if you noticed but Stanford, Cal, Notre Dame and UCLA are pulling great talent each year. You cant compare UT with Notre Dame its not even comparable. Also ND still has sent more players to the NFL. Now that Brian K has this team going in the right direction we should be sending alot more. ButI agree we have sucked over the last 20 years and this is only one good year. If you can get this team to start winning 9 10 11 games year after year than I would say he is a hot coach.
Please go read the post he was answering, all he was doing was responding to something that was posted.
Notre Dame is still paying Charlie Wiess ( Slobber Lips ) . I am sorry to say but ND can outspend Vols. Its pointless in even trying and in addition Notre Dame has found their man and Brian K has found his team. From here on out its a win win.

Based on the conference you play in, or lack thereof, I agree that you don't need Alabama type kids to win 9,10, 11 games or even make it to the national championship but you'll need elite talent to actually win it. That said, I hope ND gets an opportunity to prove otherwise in January

Mike 'The Tross' Jack is still available for hire. He's one mean sonova.
They seem like a great fit but if the HC position opens up at UT, I hope we take a stab at him.
I'll hang up and listen.
I'd rather have Zombie Robert Neyland!

Golden Tate never played for BK.
i thought we should we went full court for kelly after Fulmer..he was really the only one i saw Tn should set their focus on getting ...i saw that he was taking the leftover recruits of OSU, Mich. St, Mich, and other major universities in his area, and STILL was winning big and going to BCS games w/ Cinci...i think he passed on us (only a guess) bec he was waiting for ND hc job to open up bec Charlie Weiss was already on the hot seat..he bid his time for one more year and got his dream job (he is Irish Catholic)...not sure we can lure him away for any amount but would absolutely love to have him..or Jon Gruden! :)
yikes, you really sent english and grammar to the moon!
I hate to suggest this, because it will hurt ND. But if I were UT I would make a play for our O.C Chuck Martin. He replaced Kelly at Grand Valley State & won big there, infact they never missed a beat. He is going to make a great Head Coach at this level in the near future. That should be the guy ya'll make a play for imo.
3 time POTW
