wow. So now it's offical that Stong turned down UT. Per Finebaum and others, this is the list that has turned down UT: Gundy, Gruden, Strong, Golden, and Kirby Smart.

I can't believe I am typing this but if Strong turns us down, I think it may be time to sell our soulsl to the Devil and hire Petrino. Or maybe, we sold out soul earlier and we are now in ineternal football hell. I was not opposed to replacing Fulmer but the "Upper Level Medioctity" everyone was bitchin' about during his rein is looking mighty good about now.

Sorry for the above typos. I threw my glasses across the room when I read the article and I could not see well with fire in my eyes and no glasses.

I would hire Phil for five years,bring in Peyton at year three & groom him to be head coach by year six!

Hart is backed in a corner now. It is strong or bust. If Strong turns us down, do we "settle" for Fedora. Or does Hart employ the dumptruck method and wait to see what happens in the NFL? Would the UT fans wait?

This is all setting the stage for a surprise hiring of Fulmer. I can feel it....
