    I am not saying that they wouldn’t hire him—anything is possible. But Mullen’s problem was not a lack of resources. It just wasn’t.

    Anyone who doesn't think Cutcliffe doesn't get the job doesn't understand volsheimer disease.

    We’ll, one things for sure, if Mullen ends up at TN he will be the smartest guy in the room.

    You are using logic. Stop it and try to think like a volunteer fan.

    I live amongst the UcheaT fans and can tell you without hesitation that they would sell their soul to be relevant again. They would welcome Lame Kitten with open arms.

    I am a Knoxville resident too. It is fun to watch the "collective" teeth-gnashing that goes on here. Still, their fans have impressed me with their resilience in the face of adversity. They also flooded support to other UT teams that did well ( basketball and baseball) and awakened fan bases there that had grown dormant.

    FWIW, I think Heupel stays right where he is.

    Please edit this post to "tooth-gnashing".

    Thank you

    His ego is too big for Blacksburg.

    When the coaching carousel stops spinning, Mullen will have an SEC East job. Count on it.

    He stays because they don’t want him. Oklahoma isn’t going to offer hoopel the job. They will get a proven coach, not a won a few games we were supposed to win while the East was down coach.

    He was fired because of unreasonable expectations.

    The reason most coaches are fired.

    El Dorado is not in the destination. It is in the ride.

    But most people refuse to see that. Their self image is wrapped up in perception not reality.

    It is why most people are so easily conned.

    They want to be "winners" but they do not know what that means.

    Well, let’s see what happens. If they miss on their first few choices, then he may start to look good. Probably a good fit (philosophically) for their returning talent.

    Possibly but there are plenty of other jobs available.

    People need self validation more than money it seems. So everyone wants to make their team a winner so they can gain "street cred"! ;-)

    I’ve got it: the Vols should hire Greg Schiano.
