    Exactly right. The conference really needs the Vols, Bama, Missouri, Arkansas and A&M to solidy their basketball situation.

    Looks like UT is still looking for a coach, as White turns them down.

    I know a few Xs&Os and I'm cheap. Anyone else thinking of sending in a resume?

    I will say it again:

    "But what kind of intellect would "volunteer" to take a job in Knoxville?"

    Get behind Tyndall...a great hire. Welcome to the SEC.

    It *could* be a great hire. But it's going to be a messy transition I suspect. I'm still laughing at Clay Travis -- I like him, and the guy can be funny, but he crazily said UT was the second best job in the conference. Florida holds that spot by a mile.

    Maybe it is...behind Florida. Maybe I'm alone here, but I'd much rather have the UF job where I can win titles, recruit nationally, and make close to 4 million dollars a year without the national media pressure cooking me and fans trying to run me out of town on a rail every time I lose a couple of conference games.

    The Burgh used to be the armpit of the US but much has changed over the last 15 years. Don't get me wrong, the winters are unbearable but a summer day at PNC Park is fantastic. The city has done a nice job of cleaning up from the 70's and 80's decimation of the steel industry.

    I agree 100% -- the UF job is the best in the conference. But I'm very biased. And so are most of on this board. But some people love the craziness that goes with running the signature program of Big Blue Nation and most non-Gators would put U.K. in the top spot. I'm cool with that.

    This is an interesting point, especially when you compare it to our football coaching position and consider the expectations that come along with it. It's like we have a team on both sides of the argument.

    I hope he catches on and builds something nice. I don't know his coaching acumen but I have a feeling that he could be a Billy Gillispie kind of hire.
