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.
