    That would suck.

    I wonder if Fedora would be a coach everyone pursues because NC may take a big step backwards this year many people think.

    Even though I don't think Mullen is a great coach, he'd be an upgrade over their current HC.

      Your man crush on Fedora is puzzling. Talk about an average coach, he's it. I won't be concerned at all if he takes over at TN. Heck, I think Mullen's more of a concern than Fedora.

        Fedora has an upside. His offense is potent. If he gets the right DC he could be a problem.

        Mullet will never be a threat.

          He runs a spread offense. What makes you think his offense wii produced dramatically different results than Mullen's? Out of 9 seasons as a head coach, Fedora has had 2 good seasons. Other than that, he's been a meh coach right around the 7-6 W/L record. He's "accomplished" this at Southern Miss & UNC, two schools that play against fairly weak competition. The guy is nothing special.

          Both schools were on probation, I think, when he got there. I'm sure UNC was.

          Patriots run a spread. Mumme runs a spread. Tressel ran the spread. Mack Brown at Texas ran a spread. Holgerson runs a spread. Oregon run the spread. Dick Rodriguez runs a spread. Saying spread means damn near nothing now.

          He doesn't run Bob Davie's ND's option offense out of spread formations. Fedora isn't a run 80% guy and QB up the middle 30 times a game. If you want to be fourth in the division, Mullet is your guy.

          I don't think Fedora is a great coach, but he has potential, in the right situation. He is a gunslinger. He runs a lot of levels, verticals, and other concepts that stress the defense over the top. He will at least try to win, instead of running out the clock and hoping for a ST play/turnover.

          I would take him in a second over Butters and I would take Mullet under no circumstance.

            ... well, he just won Wimbleton.

              They are having a QB competition up there, but keep your eye on redshirt freshman Chazz Surratt, a redshirt freshman from nearby East Lincoln. Absolute stud athlete, shattered all of Chris Leak's NC high school records, records alot of people said were unreachable.

              And why would Chip go to UT? Surely he does not need the money and probably could get a job on the west coast. It is only the fans talking about this I think.

              Never said he would. Only an idiot would take that job. That doesn't explain UT's lack of interest, however.

              It will be interesting to see what happens with Kelly if both ND and Texas A&M both go 9-3 or better. I doubt he would want to go to a place like Tenn but it might not be totally out of the question if those other 2 jobs don't open up.

              I can't imagine ND hiring him. They have moral standards (current coach notwithstanding) and don't pay much.

              It just isn't in the cards.

              Show cause. It's expired, but hiring a coach that was slapped with a show cause is a risky move. He's very talented offensively, but comes with an NCAA microscope.
