Fedora Rumor...

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.

Right now, yes. Few years ago? Nope.

Every 3–4 years? Philip Fulmer coached through 2008. He's a HOF coach with a National championship since the BCS era. The Kiffin hire screwed us, yes, but it's still regarded (by intelligent fans) as a top ten job. Their recruiting budget his higher than anyone's in the SEC. They are recognized as being top 5 in facilities. They are in the best conference. They own their own state (Vandy is still Vandy).

Explain to me how a school in NCAA trouble is a better job. They won more games this year. Is that your only point? We just fired literally the worst coach in school history. Expectations are ideal for new guy. Uncharacteristically low.

lolwut? Out of all the schools in DI football, it's a Top Ten job? Sure...maybe to homer fans. Nice try at an indirect insult, made me laugh.

UNC can go places next year, Tennessee will still be scraping the cleat marks off it's forehead from 7 other schools.

The most recent example is Cowherd, who called Tennessee the eighth best job in the country. He said that on Friday after mocking us and dogging fans for thinking they had a chance at Gruden.

Said it was an even better job ten years ago.

UT is definitely a top ten job. Even with their recent fall they are right there because of the ability to win it all there. There are plenty of jobs UNC included where a coach can have a solid career. There are a handful of schools where a coach can be elite UT is in that list toward the bottom. Try naming 10 jobs better than Tennessee from a recruiting, facility's, booster support, and name brand in football. I'm not going to name johnny come lately's that need a scheme to break the top ten. Line up talent and beat the opponent into submission. I'd say top jobs to win NC's at

Bama

Fla

tOSU

USCw

ND

OU

UTx

LSU

These 8 are a cut above because of recruiting advantages. After that the next group are equal IMO

UMich

UT

UGA

FSU

I'd put TAMU here as well because of the amount Texas talent even though they are little bro.

Miami used to be here but their admin is ruining them.

When UT has a coach they'll lock up Memphis, pull out of NC VA, other SEC states and recruit nationally.

I would put Oregon over UT - Nike connection makes them a great job. They've been consistently solid record-wise for about 8 years now too. I think they've had 9+ wins every year since 2004 except once.

Are you factoring in the fact that people from that part of the country are strange?
