    It became pathetic the moment Dooley was announced as the head coach.

    They should have pulled the plug on this guy in November. It still isn't too late with the right hire.

    [uck fay]. I was really hoping the 8th could pool some cash and book the West Virginia marching band to invade Steele's press conference.

    But we don't really know even who has been offered or not. A lot of "turned down" talk is also coach speak.

    Defensive coordinator apps available on iTunes? Dooley would try and download it and get an error message I'm guessing.

    I feel like it's almost too late for that now. To make the change now worth it, UT would have to hire someone who has already won before.

    In this case it means he was contacted and said "thanks but no thanks".

    That's the only time it would ever be worth it. If we're not willing to do that, there's no point in getting rid of Dooley.

    I don't think I was clear. After next season, I think you can hire a guy like Strong and be okay. To make a change now, so close to signing day, would pretty much destroy this class, which was the purpose of hiring Dooley in the first place. The way around that is to hire a guy who has already won big. In other words, an unrealistic hire. I just don't think you can make a move on someone unless you can find a guy with a track record that would inspire instant confidence in the fan base right now. I'd rather make a change after next year than be stuck to a new guy who can't win for at least 2 or 3 years.

    This part of the WSPA report has been removed since I posted the link to it:

    The South Carolina News Network reports that Tennessee's search appears to be moving away from Steele after the two sides exchanged dollar figures, according to a source. According to the network's source, Steele gave Tennessee the dollar amount it would take for him to leave his current post and the school did not meet that number.

    This is so embarassing. How has come to this?
