    Getting the Mullet out of OK St. would be a coup. I doubt it happens. That said, if it does happen Vol fans will owe Clay Travis a debt of gratitude. Greg Shiano would have been a shitty hire.

    Part of it is based on academic grounds. Among major conferences, the Pac-10 is the best academically, largely because of Stanford, Cal and UCLA. “Colorado is on a par with Oregon,” he said. “Utah isn’t even in the picture.”

    I don't believe Clay Travis and the UT fans have forever poisoned the well as many windbags on national radio are saying. On the contrary, after a horrible coach and a near-death experience with Schiano, a halfway decent pick would probably be received as a savior on campus.

    The "poisoning the well" argument is usually pure bullshit. The 49ers stupidly fired Jim Harbaugh, then compounded that by retaining their idiotic GM. I don't even know if the next two head coaches, each one only lasted a year, were necessarily horrible hires. But at the end of the year there was all kind of discussion about how they wouldn't be able find someone to coach the team. They ended up hiring the most sought-after assistant last year, Kyle Shanahan. The fact that the 49ers are now 1-10 is beside the point. There are guys falling all over themselves to get a head coaching job at a place like Tennessee. It's not Alabama, but it's in the second tier after those schools (USC, Ohio State, Florida, etc). I'd say it's on par with a place like Georgia.

    As someone who's a pure outsider to the SEC and Tennessee, Greg Schiano seemed to be an extremely underwhelming hire. Plus, by all accounts, the guy's a complete asshole and I'm not even talking about his time at Penn State.

    Yeah, it sounds like he was a train wreck at Tampa Bay.

    A lot of times that’s a positive characteristic in coaching college football.

    No matter how bad the coaching situation in Provo is, BYU fans can take solace in the fact that we are not ASU fans.

    Let's be honest here, the majority of good coaches in college football are fucking assholes.
    The crux of what has traumatized us about CUF/CG is that we thought they were our friends. And their identity as BYU fans turned out to be the most important thing to them. What empty lives! What a damning indictment of the LDS Church!

    For all this His anger is not turned away, but His hand is stretched out still.

    Not long ago an obituary appeared in the Salt Lake Tribune that said the recently departed had "died doing what he enjoyed most—watching BYU lose."

    There's different types of assholes. Saban and Meyer's players have never openly mutinied against them. I also can't recall too many coaches trying this move (Schiano did this twice)):

    Isn't Tee Martin a pretty good assistant coach somewhere? He'd go back to Tennessee for the head job.

    Didn't remember that it was OC at USC. Seems like a no brainer for the Vols after the struggle they've had finding somebody.

    Yeah it seems like if you are a traditional power with all the resources and fan support you need who fired a loyal, successful coach to avoid a slide into mediocrity, only to discover that the Nick Sabans of the world aren't beating down the door to coach your team so you run through several truly mediocre coaches and really drop off the map as far as national relevance and then you have a chance to hire a really quality coach who isn't urban Myer or Jon Gruden but is very good by all accounts and also has the built in loyalty of having played and won a national championship the program, you should probably do everything you can to hire that coach.

    This all sounds so familiar...

    Supposedly Mike Leach and Tennessee are working on a deal. That's a huge improvement over Greg Schiano if it happens.
