    Going to be interesting to see who Ewe Tee goes after to coach them. I wonder if Leach at Texas Tech would consider going to Knoxville?

    They should go after Rich Rodriguez.

    In all seriousness, that's a pretty good job. I'd go after Skip Holtz if I were them. Maybe the guy from Oklahoma State as well (although, I think he's seen as kind of a whack job by many).

    I think Mike Leach is heading to Clemson. Just a gut feeling.

    What's funny is that Mike Leach has been doing this for years with the offense. Nothing this year is any different than any other year. The difference is that they finally have some guys who can play defense. And now all of a sudden Leach is a hot commodity. He's a great offensive mind, but beware of the guy who's been around a while then has one great year. I've seen it countless times in college sports, both basketball and football. A guy comes along and gets hot one year and becomes the next big thing in coaching. He's given a job too big for him and they wind up failing.

    I'm not suggesting Leach is that guy. I'm just always leery of the guy who's all of sudden hot based on one season.

    A sad day IMO. Fulmer did a lot of good things for that university over the years. It's funny how a few bad seasons can erase over a decade of success, on and off the field. Fulmer was a Tennessee man, through and through. He oversaw Peyton's success, he led them to a national title, what more could you ask for? Unquestionably, it was time to go. He'd run his course. I just hope that after his final game in Neyland Stadium, those fans get on their feet and give that man one hell of a standing ovation as a going away gift, because he deserves at least that much.

    Tennessee is to football what Kentucky is to basketball, and Fulmer has seriously overstayed his welcome in Knoxville. If anything, this reminds me a lot of Tubby Smith at Kentucky. Good coach, just not the right one for the program at this time.

    My guess is Leach should be candidate numero uno. The question is would Tennessee fans who pride themselves on defense ever get used to seeing what is going on in Lubbock right now on the defensive side of the ball.

    Tennessee seems to be a patient athletic department. They had a lot of patience with Johnny Majors and a lot of patience with Fulmer. That should make it an appealing destination for a coach looking for a destination to end his career.

    The name I heard bandied about was Lane Kiffin. I think he's going to be coaching prospect numero uno next year.

    Also, I wouldn't leave The other, other OSU(the one in Oklahoma City) with the money T. Boone Pickens is throwing around, I'd probably be pretty happy to live in OKC, catch some thunder games, and live it up.

    Can you imagine Mike Leach & Bruce Pearl at the same school?

    Woah.

    I've always wondered who would win in a pie-eating contest: Phil Fulmer or Toledo head coach Tom Amstutz.

    I just don't think much of Fulmer or the way he ran his program.

    In addition to what you hear in the news, I've heard lots of stories from reliable souces that I won't get into here.

    Looks like they both may have plenty of time to match up in that contest.
