    Should Tennessee hire Jurich?

    I think this would make perfect sense for UT...I can't believe it's not been discussed yet.

    I think Jurich would come as a package deal with Petrino.

    They need a good bully on campus.

    If you are hiring Jurich I think you do it with the expectation of letting him hire the next coach. Petrino would be the obvious choice for Jurich IMO.

    That Knoxville media does seem to be getting out of control.

    I don't think they are a package deal but I would think Jurich would at least give him a call if he was named the AD.

    I don't doubt that, but saying they are a package deal is silly.

    Well, I think if TJ was to get the AD job there would be a really good chance Petrino would become their coach so while I don't think they are a package deal in the true sense, I think you could look at it as they kind of are. You hire Tom and you are most likely going to get Petrino. That said, Petrino may want to coach Lamar one more year if Lamar stays.

    Because he is a good coach and Jurich already has a relationship with him.

    Tom would hire the best coach available. Are you saying Petrino would be the best available?

    But how funny would it be to see you hate on him for another whole season?
