Honestly, I don't even care anymore about these rumors. Not paying attention till something substantial happens.
Here's the link.
* Arkansas - Sources tell us that The Hogs have been turned down by James Franklin, Gary Patterson, Les Miles, Chris Petersen and its not l
That's on a rumor board, isn't it?
Substantiated rumors. They are rumors with legs. Don't be so quick to judge them as false.
Not saying anything comes of Bo or his interest. One could only hope I guess.
Yes. I didn't make these rumors up. They are from 247 staff (I believe)
So are you here to shoot them down? Because you we're notorious for doing that on TOS.
Oh BS... those rumors have been wrong multiple times. It's just something to get people riled up. I don't even care if Bo talks to them, until something more substantiated than a rumor mention on a rumor board happens I don't care.
Sources tell us Mike Gundy, Bo Pelini, Butch Jones and Charlie Strong remain in the mix at Tennessee. Jimbo Fisher is expected to stay at FSU.
They have been pretty dang accurate. I have been following closely. Have you? And nowhere does it say Bo is a front runner, or if he will even be offered. But to just say it's BS because you choose not to believe it does not mean there isn't something there. IMO.
No, I'm not saying it's not true, I'm saying it doesn't matter if only rumor platforms are talking about it. Sure Tennessee might talk to Bo... What I'm saying isn't that there is nothing behind those rumors but that as long as they remain "rumors" I don't care.
edit: I've gotten myself too riled up about this coaching stuff before... Penn State... Miami... others. Nothing came of any of them and from what i've read and heard they weren't even close. As a result i don't want to get invested until it's something that looks more likely.
Hope that makes sense.

Remember, everything in sports starts as a rumor. Mostly due to the fact that these people have jobs, and sources remain secret for a reason. Plus things fall through, and its just easier to save face if it fails. But I get what your saying, and respect that.
I'm not shooting anything down. I just asked if it was on a rumor board. Which it is.
I don't post enough anywhere to be notorious for anything.
The only point I've made to any colleague about the Tennessee job is that Bo's got a guy on his staff right now who was there and who got the heck out of there in part because the hatchet was coming down on his boss. Pelini's track record far exceeds Dooley's, true, but it's not that easy of a place to recruit to, and it's been the No. 4 program in the SEC East for five years.
"In the deed, the glory"
I will say this about Tennessee, they have been there. They can get back there. That's no secret to anyone. I will not down play Tennessee and that job. If I was confident in my abilities as a coach, I would not be scared of this job. I relate it much to Nebraska actually. Except for the fact that our history blows them out the water. But in the 2000's, were very similar.
Nebraska>>>>>>Tennessee. Don't get me wrong, I believe this.
No doubt. Were they not the ones that made it sound like CP to Arky was basically a done deal?
Not that I read. Said it could happen. Didn't say it would.
Just scrolled through them all, and they didn't even go as far as to say he could be. Only mentioned that he was a target/candidate. So, no, they never said he was going there.
