    I disagree. It was perfect then and nothing has changed.

    Are the egos that were instrumental in him NOT becoming our HC still in place?

    I suppose that's the question, now.

    Basilio just settled it, said Gruden never wanted to come here.

    I just don't think we make a coaching change this year. We need to, but we won't.

    Let's be honest. He can say flattering things about the program and team without meaning he actually wants the job. I'm not saying he wouldn't take it, but saying something like that doesn't mean he really intends to coach here. I'm pretty sure he followed up that quote by speaking highly of Butch. It's just talk.

    1. Think of the people on this board that you trust, who always bring great info from solid sources, and have called dozens of things well before they came to pass or the local media had reported or admitted them.

    2. Contact them publicly or via PM, and ask them what they think.

    3. Believe whatever they tell you.

    If you're going to shut the door, then shut it. Adding that the "timing wasn't right" isn't shutting the door, but the opposite, and with parameters. If you're just trying to speak some simple pleasantries, why mention specific criteria?

    Gruden went well beyond what any other coach would have been expected to do in deference to any other coach the last go-round, and with Dooley. He's old school, and while he advocates for the FFCA, he isn't going to be responsible for adding to its membership.

    I'm not in the Top 25 best or most trusted sources on this site. Maybe not even Top 50.

    Where is 'BoroVol? Didn't he join here? I always found this info to be pretty spot on.
