    Everybody so far hasn't given them the time of day. I think they only way they could get an established coach like Petrino is hiring someone like Jurich who already has a relationship with Petrino. That job is a dumpster fire right now and whatever coach that comes in there would need to have a strong relationship with the AD.

    Country clubs in Knoxville are licking their chops at this post.

    Tennessee didn't hire Schiano because the fans went a-wall over the fact he may have known about the Sandusky stuff without any physical proof, I can't imagine what they'd do if they hired an AD that had experienced so many scandals at UofL. If I'm any program I am staying away from Jurich until the smoke clears.

    Yeah, because nothing has ever happened at Tennessee.

    I haven't hated on Lamar unless me saying Mayfield should win the Heisman as "hate".

    Why not go for both ? Plus he can hire his pet football coach / motorcycle king so they can embarrass the university even more than they have on their own ..

    Anyone else think the UL bashing is getting kind of old? Can't we move on by this point? I think Jurich going to Tennessee would be a good move for both parties involved.

    Jurich would be a home run hire regardless of who he hires as football coach. UT has been so weak at the AD position it has allowed football to basically drop off the planet.

    I agree, so let's hope they don't do it.

    And this is the basis for the negative comments in this thread. Jurich is one of the best, there is no denying it.

    IF Jurich wants to get back into the AD game again then Tennessee would make a whole of sense. But he has some business to wrap up in Louisville that will likely result in a fairly large check.

    Also, IF he did go to Knoxville then Petrino would seem to be a good football coach candidate purely as an Xs and Os coach. But Bobby may want to stay. His family never left Louisville after his first stint and they seem to be fairly well settled. Even if he wants to make the jump, tapping into his old rambling man ways, his family could veto it. And at this point he probably does not need the money.

    But the fan base may reject either or both of these guys based on their (fan base) behavior over the last 48 hours.

    It is an interesting 'package' in theory.

    If we are talking package deals....how about....

    Barnhart/Stoops

    Many of the UK base are unhappy with both now. And many have always said Barnhart wants to get back to Tennessee since he was there for 12 years.
