I am OK with that.

Vols Women's 2nd
Archie would be a homerun hire, but I wonder if he'll hold out for something larger. Brother Sean went from Xavier to Arizona, and Archie is certainly on a similar track. Dayton won't be hold on to Archie for too much longer. But is Tennessee big enough to make Arch move? Of course there is no reason Archie couldn't use Tennessee as a pit stop to greater things, but Archie has already taken Dayton farther in the tournament than Tenn has been.
True...perhaps he would rather stay at Dayton until an elite job opens up...or was that team a flash in the pan. I don't know, but if I'm a coach and can move up a rung in the ladder I do it.
As for those that laugh at coach leaving tenn, it could turn out to be a good thing for Tennessee? Watch for the search to unfold before laughing.
I hate UT as much as the next guy, but I actually didn't think their criticism was unwarranted. Their NCAA run overshadows how underperforming they were all year. No way a team that talented should be fighting for their tourney life and losing to the likes of A&M twice.
Tennessee is really going to suck next season
GRUDEN GRUDEN GRUDEN!!!!!!!!!
Yeah...I posted in the other thread that Gruden is a "done deal":
Exactly correct! I just finished reading Franz' article this morning and the "Houndog Faithful" have done it again.
Shot themselves in the foot... all the while, listening to banjo music from Deliverance.
Two reasons - Donavon and Calipari.
I live in San Francisco. One big caveat, so long as you have lots of$$$$
Tru dat MDF.
My parents first moved to Walnut Creek from Virginia decades ago.
I thought that was expensive enough...but there's a 'serious' cover charge for San Fran.
I grew up in the East Bay and get back occasionally. I don't find cost of living (with one huge exception) to not be much more than Gainesville--grocery prices are comparable, and in much of the area there are relatively low heating/AC costs. Of course, the big exception is housing. I've seen apt complexes with banners advertising the amount of rent per week (you can't actually rent it for the week--they just don't want to cause sticker shock by listing the monthly rental). My mother sold the 3-bedroom house I grew up in, complete with cracked walls from the '89 earthquake, that she and my father bought new 50+ years earlier--she sold it for 40 times what they had paid for it.
Love the Bay Area, and have family who live in Sacramento, so we get to visit regularly. But housing and gas costs are part of the reason we don't live in N. Cal. Here's a good COL calculator to show you just how much more expensive things are in the US. Cost of living in San Francisco is 1.5X that of Phoenix. Sacramento is only 20% more expensive, but again, most of that is housing costs.
But if you are making NCAA Head Basketball Coach money, cost of living doesn't factor as greatly. And from a quality of life perspective, I'd much rather live in N. Cal than Tennessee.
From a basketball perspective, the move is lateral at best. Just as UTenn isn't going to compete with Kentucky and Florida annually for SEC supremacy, neither is CAL going to compete with UCLA and Arizona.
Hart might go after Leonard Hamilton. That would be a hoot.
Things are looking up for UT...Hart says they have "history and tradition"
It just seems to be closer to an amicable divorce. But the real question remains, can they do any better?
