Two men walk into a Knoxville BBQ joint…

and hilarity ensues.

I’m not sure what pain Vol fans deserve more, Gruden, the pipe dream or actually hiring a man who hasn’t coached in college in decades and would likely abandon ship as soon as things weren’t fun anymore.

Shooting straight, Champions of Life edition

One word for this:  brutal.

Doesn’t sound like Booch will be missed.

The rise and fall of a Champion for Life

Booch gets the ax.

If I’m not mistaken, he’ll have over $8 million coming to him from UT in the buyout.  No word on whether he gets to keep the trash can.

So, that means UF and UT are both in the hunt for new head coaches.  I wonder when the last time that happened.

UPDATE:  “He said he didn’t really expect that to happen, but it did so he told me to find a place to go, quickly … and that if he gets anything he will contact me.”

Misery loves company, part one

If you’re the Tennessee Volunteer band, you play “Rocky Top”.  It’s what you do.

Every week it seems like there’s a new metaphor for the season Booch is having.

Mike Hamilton’s big favor to the SEC East

My goodness, what a dumb decision:

Patterson, who was just two years removed from winning the Rose Bowl back then, wasn’t interested in going into details, but acknowledged that he’s talked with high-profile schools in the past. He interviewed with Nebraska in 2008, when the Huskers hired Bo Pelini, and also interviewed with Tennessee in 2009 after Phillip Fulmer was fired and the Vols hired Lane Kiffin.

“Tennessee didn’t think I could handle the big stage,” Patterson said. “My wife and I went to dinner with them, and I could tell they had already decided on Kiffin. It was the same with Nebraska. I interviewed and could tell they had already decided on Pelini. I think a lot of these ADs now are more interesting in hiring guys who’re going to win the podium than they are in hiring football coaches, and there’s a lot more to it than that if you’re going to win championships.”

Patterson smiled when asked if he would have taken either the Tennessee or Nebraska job had he been offered.

“It’s sort of like the old Garth Brooks song. Sometimes the best prayers are unanswered prayers,” Patterson said.

Junior over Patterson?  Jeebus.  Just think about how things might have gone over the past decade if Hamilton weren’t such an incompetent idiot.

A grateful Dawgnation thanks you, Mike.

Yeah, that’s a shame.

Nice streak, Vols.

Not that there’s anything wrong with that.

When being a Champion of Life “has been one of the worst work experiences I have ever had.’’

Just another day of fun and games in Knoxville.
