Fedora Rumor...

114 posts in this topic

Gruden rumors to Tennessee weren't as crazy as his agent makes them sound. CJG has been flirting with UT's big $$ people for a few weeks now. His wife was a cheerleader here and he got his coaching start in Knoxville. I believe him to be a twisted individual, if he really thought UT was living in a "fantasy world" when they thought they could get him. Why did he lead them on for so long, then? Dude's need for an ego-stroke is out of control.

Why did he lead them on? Simple. So it seems like there's a ton of demand for his services and he can extract the best, sweetheart type deal from an NFL team (control over roster, etc.). Gruden is and always will be an NFL coach, and he just uses these college teams (and frankly, other NFL openings) as a way to keep his name at the forefront of desirable NFL front office-types' minds.

Why would Fedora leave UNC right now to go to a place with expectations like Tennessee? He is getting paid gobs of money at a program that is weakened by sanctions and basically has them at his mercy b/c they know if he leaves then they are screwed.

Fedora just better hope that his offense works next year with no offensive line and no all-acc running back...

C47,I can't see him leaving his alma mater. Our boosters have made it known that we are prepared to pay Saban-money to someone. There just isn't anyone close to worth that that would come. We'll end up hiring someone like Butch Jones, and I'm going to puke.

Panthro did u hear that from some redneck caller on WFNZ?

Fedora has shown he has a hard time sitting still but i would bet hell be here for at least another 3 years.

Fedora isn't going. This is just fluff by some fan off their couch. UNC is a much better situation than Tennessee right now. Dig in Staties, you got a few more years of gettin' whooped.

I'm sorry, are you saying UNC is a better job than Tennessee?

Also, Fedora isn't really even on "the list". Strong interviewed yesterday and Fisher will on Monday. Gundy is the only other name mentioned as to setting up an interview.

    • No, we haven't heard that for the last 5-6 years. Last year we could have gotten a solid tackle if we weren't picking 30th. People were talking up Tunsil, Stanley, Conklin and even Decker. The first two were considered top 10 and Tunsil was talked about #1 until the video showed up. None of the OTs this year have gotten close to those 4's hype. Heck, the #1, 2, and 3 OTs this year are a guy who just had hip surgery and played only 1 year in D1, a guy who seems to be past his checkered history and also played only 1 year in D1/is going to be 25 by camp and a guy with character issues that top draft prognosticators have called a guard or RT at best. That pales in comparison with last year's class. The only reason those 3 may go in the 1st is because there is no one else close and there are a ton of teams at the back end of the 1st that need tackles. Also, as I said, please go watch the Senior Bowl. Almost every OT that is after the top 3 was playing and they got tore up by the DEs/OLBs. It was like multiple Remmers out there making all the DEs/OLBs look like Von Miller. I was amazed at how bad some of them looked on multiple plays. I will repeat, this class looks awful to me, way, way worse than last year. I don't care if you don't like Gettleman or not, that line has been repeated by just about every draft analyst on this draft. OT is a glaring weak spot in this draft. If you really want to be upset, go look at the top picks we traded away before he got here. Do you think Dez Bryant or Demaryius Thomas would have helped Cam a bit?
    • It's mostly your boss's. He just generously lets you keep a pittance of it compared to what he takes off of your work.
    • I know it's not popular, but what if we trade back from 8? I know it's a good draft and there are a ton of great prospects in the top 12 but it could be possible.
