Well friends, I don’t believe that to be Auburn. Yes, I was a bit disappointed in the hire of Malzahn initially. But we could have done a lot worse. Add to that I was a bit impressed by Arkansas’s hire…. but I think we are ok. I think good things are around the corner for AU. I have already spoken to the things happening on the Plains tonight…
The team I am referring too is Tennessee. It is reported tonight that Charlie Strong has turned Tennessee down. That is a major slap in the face.
An update: it appears that adding insult to injury UT offered the job to Gundy as well… and it to was rejected.
To recap…. Tennessee first set their sites on John Gruden… but was told no thanks. Then they went after Charlie Strong… and he too has said no. Now Gundy has been added to the list. Who is next? Can it be that Knoxville is actually in worst shape than Auburn?
I don’t know… but obviously the AD there is back to his white board drawing up future possibilities.. I hear Skip Holtz is unemployed… and they could hire Gene Chizik… it will be interesting to see who they get.
The SEC is an unforgiving place. UT has never been the same since UT fired Fulmar (AKA the orange pumpkin). I hear a country boy can survive… I wonder if that counts for a volunteer?
I never saw this coming back in the mid- 1990s. Did you? Who would have thought that UT would be worse off than UK????? Not me…
