Subject: you can win a national title at tennessee....
with those resources and the potential to recruit there....
thats why Im surprised to see some coaches turn it down.
I get mullen turning it down- florida is a better job.
But if you are gundy? They were going to pay him more,and you can get better players at tennessee
than okstate. You just can- check the recruiting ranking averages over the last 5, 10 years.
Tennessee beats them every year,and usually by a good margin. Okstate has had more success over
that time because of competition and mostly because of coaching(gundy vs dooley and jones, two
idiots) but tennesseeis a better job with more resources, much larger fan base,more history, more
money, and better recruiting potential....
And then for jeff brohm to turn it down is even stranger. I guess his strategy is to get ourdue on
an upswing and eventually take a true top ten job, but isn't that a pretty big risk? If a big
upswing at purdue never happens and that top ten job doesnt come, you just passed up tennessee to
stay at purdue....ugh.
